M/F Rubenesque Erotic Romance
Adele Blackthorne is a big girl, a curvy chick. She knows it, and she’s been picked on all her life because of it. But she’s gotten to the stage where she doesn’t care. She may be Rubenesque, but she’s healthy, too. Much healthier than the mean girls at the leisure center that point and stare and say spiteful things about her. Adele rises above it all, and simply enjoys her secretive glances at the center’s hunky lifeguard, Oliver.
As the bullying of Adele becomes worse, Oliver finds it increasingly difficult not to intervene. He doesn’t want to get into trouble with work, but equally he can’t stand to see Adele treated in such a horrible way. Especially since he doesn’t agree that she’s fat and unattractive. He thinks she’s a seriously sexy woman, and would like to get to know her better. Much better.

“Lucy Felthouse knows what curvy gals want and she gives it to them with this fantastic contemporary short. I loved how the story just flowed so smoothly and I felt as if I had so much invested in this couple’s future as their connection was so poignant. Their attraction and the culmination of it was skillfully done. I’m looking forward to reading many more stories by this author as well as reading this fabulous one over and over again.” 4.5 out of 5, Night Owl Reviews
“Some of my favorite romances aren’t the traditionally handsome man and/or skinny pretty woman. I like to read about real people so when I got the chance to read this I was excited. Oliver also has some goofy moments which was a nice change. He sticks his foot in his mouth and isn’t all that smooth with Adele. It made him more likeable and genuine.” The Jeep Diva
“This was a sexy foray into the inner life of what it can mean to be a plus size girl in a world made for women who are model thin. Being a curvy girl myself, I could completely identify with the horrible feelings you have to endure as someone who is a little larger than most women. A great story with some sexy scenes!” 4 out of 5, Erzabet Bishop
“Ladies… you gotta love a BBW romance where the girl gets the hunk. Lucy wove a delicious tale of attraction that proves beauty goes WAY beyond looks and goes all the way to the soul… I did a few fist pumps when Oliver and Adele put the mean girls in their places giving the finger to those who think you have to be thin to be desirable. Way to go Lucy!” 5 out of 5, Rom Fan Reviews
“Author Lucy Felthouse nicely explores a relationship between an older plus-size woman and a younger shy man in this sweet and hot novella from publisher Ellora’s Cave… not a deep romance, but it can be compared to a new bloom slowly opening to the warmth and brightness of the sun. It combines sweet, heat, and a touch of humor that makes for an undemanding but decidedly pleasant read.” The Romance Reviews
“Ms. Felthouse shows us love comes in all shapes in sizes in this romantic tale with a twist. If you’re looking for a romance that steps a bit out of the box, and the country, because this is set in England, this is the perfect one for you.” Romancing the Book
