Goodreads: Big girls don't cry. They go after what they want.

Thanks to her bangin' curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie's luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie's determined to get Logan's attention . . . even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar. 

Logan can't remember a time when Valerie didn't secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It's only when he finds Valerie's naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality. 

No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series that centers around Leah's best friend.  If you haven't read book one or my review yesterday, Leah is the center of the first book and her best friend Valerie is the star.  She works in Leah's bakery and has always had an older brother to watch her back and defend her in everything.  Things may get turned upside down when her brother's best friend Logan returns to town for many reasons.

Another romance novel that of course was predictable, but as I always say its ok that you know the destination, the journey is still enjoyable.  Romance books are notoriously made with a formula, but as most romance readers know we are ok with the formula its almost nice to know that we will end with smiles on our face and a happy ending!

I liked this second book better than the first.  As I said yesterday the first focused so much on size and made me uncomfortable, instead Valerie had confidence and was excited to be able to love someone that she had wanted to love for so long.  I loved the ups and downs of the book, the flow was just spot on.  With a smidge less sexy chatter, I felt like this book had a smidge more content, not as much as some romance authors and made me pause, but enough to work better than the first book.

I am on the fence about continuing this series, but thinking I just might to see where it could go.  The second book absolutely saved this one for me, so I hope you will start at book one, but quickly move to book two. 

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
