Curvy Ann Griffin has a secret—she’s in love with her longtime best friend and business partner Joe Mathews. After suffering through a date from hell—which definitely wasn’t worth putting on her strangling shapewear for—Ann heads home. How was she supposed to know the night would end with her throwing herself into his arms and allowing him to fulfill her every fantasy?
What’s a guy to do when the woman he loves kisses him senseless? Go with it, that’s what. For more than a decade, Joe has fought back his needs for the voluptuous beauty. In his mind, the only thing missing in their relationship was the ability to explore every inch of her luscious body.

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR:
Are you a plotter or a pantser, or a hybrid?
I’m a Plotster, so a hybrid. I plot out the beginning middle and end, but how I get there is all by the seat of my pants.
In your opinion, what makes a great hero?
Umm, a big package and a hard body? No really…I think what makes a great hero is the same traits that make a great man. To me Joe is the best kind of man. Even though he can be a little clueless when it comes to Ann’s feelings (Lets face it he is a man), he is madly in love with her and likes to tend to her without Ann even knowing it.
What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo?
My computer and my cat. Here’s a little secret, my cat Einstein is the hero in all my stories. Shh. Don’t tell my husband.
Do you have any rituals for writing or special locations that you prefer to inhabit when you’re writing?
I need to make sure my email is cleaned out before I can write. It’s a little OCD. I should get help.
Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what type(s) do you lean towards?
No, I find it to distracting. I start singing along and the dog next door starts barking, which makes my Neighbor car alarm go off.
What are you currently working on, or what’s on the horizon?
I’m working on two stories right now. One is about a woman wishing she had someone to spend her birthday with and she get two someones. The other story is a Vacation story about a woman who goes on her honeymoon alone and finds just the right distraction to pull her out of her funk and forget that her husband to be dumped her.

Thanks to Heidi Lynn Anderson and Candlelight Book Promotions for the opportunity to read this great story! With this story being a novella, it makes it difficult to write a review without giving anything away. So it will be a short review.
I instantly fell in love with these two characters. I truly could relate to the heroine of this story and one day hope I find my Mr. Perfect! Sometimes friends make the best lovers, unless something happens after becoming lovers.
