About the book:

The second book in a laugh-out-loud new contemporary romance series from Alison Bliss!

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.

My Thoughts:

I read Size Matters and loved it and from what I saw of Valerie in that book I knew I had to read On the Plus Side. I loved it just as much as I did Size Matters. Valerie and Logan were both great characters and the chemistry between the two was sizzling hot! I also enjoyed the humor that was spread throughout the book including a list Valerie writes up that ends up creating some interesting scenes between she and Logan.

There were two things that knocked this down from a 5 to a 4 star read for me. One was Valerie’s brother who really crossed the line from being an admirable though misguided over-protective brother into just being a crazy, seemingly unhinged brother. The other bigger issue for me was that Valerie makes a mistake, a huge mistake that has some pretty dire consequences. I felt like though she said it was her bad and she’s sorry, she didn’t really see what the big deal was. Instead it’s made out more like Logan was the jerk for over-reacting and then easily forgives her without her having to deal with any consequences for her actions. So that kind of soured things a bit for me.

Still Alison Bliss has an amazing writing style that draws you in and makes you fall in love with her stories. I’ll definitely be on the look out for More to Love!
