On The Plus Side by Tabatha Vargo Review!
Big girls need love, too, but at what cost? Lilly is loaded, not only with money, but with weight. Both things she could do without. But even with her undesired millionaire status, she doesn’t hold on to false hopes of finding true love. So when a sexy stranger comes into her life dripping with seduction, she finds it hard to resist. The bigger they are the harder they fall and Lilly falls straight through the floor in love with Mr. Sexy. Too bad he’s there for all the wrong reasons. The chance of losing it all will make you do some crazy things and Devin’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep his life together. All seems lost when out of nowhere he’s approached by a Millionaire Momma with an offer he can’t refuse. But even a womanizer like Devin has a heart and when the short, chunky girl with the carefree attitude breaks through his icy façade, he finds that losing everything takes on a whole new meaning.
On The Plus Side is probably one of my favorite adult contemporary novels ever. Books featuring plus sized girls, like myself, are my guilty pleasure and I was not disappointed at ALL with this book. As soon as I began reading I knew that I was in for an emotional read. I love books where the main character is a little insecure and afraid to trust men because that's how I am, and I can relate to that. Relating to a character is extremely important to me and I really related to Lilly. The emotions this book made me feel had my heart literally aching for Lilly and Devin. This isn't a book you read to take your mind off of things, this is a book that makes you feel something. Books that cause such strong emotions are books worth reading, and I can tell you that I stayed up all night reading this book because it was that good. I really loved everything about this book from the sweet romance, to the emotional ending, and even the lies that were told. I hate to say it but I also love it when a male character does something terrible, realizes what he has lost, and is forced to beg for forgiveness. A little humility never hurt anyone, right? It makes stories all that more interesting and this book DEFINITELY keeps you interested. If you are looking for an adult novel full of romance, emotions, betrayal, and ultimately, happiness then On The Plus Side is a book you need to pick up! I give it five out of five stars!
