A Merry Little Meet Cute
Rating: 5 out of 5
Bee (AKA Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. She has a huge following and two supportive moms. Bee couldn't ask for anything more. When her favorite producer casts her to star in a Christmas movie for a squeaky clean TV channel, her career is about to take a more family friendly direction. Forced to keep her work as Bianca quiet, Bee quickly learns this is one of those easier said than done tasks. It all becomes worthwhile when she discovers her co-star is her childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member, who is in need of a career rehab. Nolan promised his manager to behave on set, and he will if it means being able to provide for his mom and sister a more stable living situation. Things quickly heat up when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account. Now they are sneaking off for quickies on set and keeping their relationship secret from the Hope Channel's execs. If the two can't keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.
This book sucked me in from the beginning because of the level of insanity that started the whole thing. I mean the porn producer is trying to expand by moving to a Christmas movie on the squeaky clean channel and screws up showing head shots from his porn business to the director! It was great. I mean all levels of comedy are in existence. It was like the best cheesy Hallmark movie with a lot of sexy appeal. I loved every single second of this book. The situations were the perfect amount of funny and ridiculous! It was fun to watch events unfold. You could also really pick up on the attraction between Bee and Nolan and the sexual tension between them was intense.
I loved that the way this book portrayed a plus sized female main character. She was a confident and sexy character who didn't let her size define her. I loved that the authors also didn't make it her sole character trait. It was just a part of the narrative, like her hair color. Nolan was perhaps the sweetest character I have ever seen and his love for his mom and sister was beautiful. The book has some predictable moments because of the cheesy Hallmark vibes, but it is one I could read over and over again. I can't wait to see what comes next from these authors.
