This is book two in the Flirting with Curves series but it is definitely a standalone. You can read this book without having read book one, but one you have read it, you will probably want to read book one to hear Barbara and Ryder's story.
I must say, my attention was snagged from the start. Gia is working with Barbara, Ryder, and Hunter in the rebuild project happening in Ocean Crest. The only problem is Gia didn't know that someone from her family should not be working in the area. It all comes to light when her father is put in prison and things at work start going wrong with the suppliers.
The story has heat, a story, a bit of action, and a family reunion. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
This book was a recommendation by a favourite go-to-author of mine, Christa Wick, so when I saw they were looking for ARC reviewers for this book, I jumped at it wholeheartedly. I mean, who doesn't want to review stories about big beautiful women being delightfully tamed by muscle-clad men? But a few chapters into the book, it became readily apparent that the type of curvalicious read that I live for was sadly missing in this one.
I found that the writing was quite erratic in the sense that things would just jump from one event to the other without having properly established everything that lead up to that point in time. Additionally, the transitions between chapters (as I'm assuming both authors took turns writing a chapter) wasn't entirely seamless.
But the main problem I had with the book were the two characters, Gia and Hunter. It really frustrates me when characters refuse to communicate with each other. Gia I found to be the worst of the two, with the only exercise she took part in was that of jumping to conclusions. And the whole Hunter dropping the L-word after one visit to the nirvana that was Gia's vagina was a bit too much for me. I don't want to be told things, I want it all to unfold organically via the story telling so I can have a chance to fall in-love with the characters and appreciate their story for what it is.
Would I recommend this book?
This could be a perfect example of me being the odd one out. Whilst this book wasn't my cup of tea, its scored a number of five stars with other readers. Try it for yourselves.

I didn't read the first story but plan to go back and read it.
The bond between Gia and Hunter are amazing.
