Synopsis: Cherri has often wished she were thin and graceful like a ballerina instead of being a six-foot-tall blonde with curves that require serious caution. Surely a charming Irishman like her new boss Colin, with his throaty brogue and to-die-for bod, would never go for someone like Cherri. Unless maybe he’s looking for the exact opposite of a delicate lass? When Colin hired Cherri to work in his furniture-restoration shop, he had his eyes, first and foremost, on her artistic talents. But now he can’t help but see Cherri for the lush, spirited beauty that she is…and, soon enough, he finds himself mixing business with pleasure. But Cherri turns out to be more vulnerable than she appears. Is she in need of more than Colin can give? Or could it be that a feeling stronger than lust has him thrown for a curve?
My take: Thrown for a Curve had me with the tall, charming Irishman 🙂 I enjoyed this contemporary romance. Sugar Jamison gives the reader characters you can cheer for and used tried and true themes. Cherri doesn’t realize how beautiful she is and has never felt comfortable with her tall, curvy stature. Colin loves women but doesn’t trust them. His own mother left him when he was a baby and he caught the last woman he loved (and planned to marry) having fun with another guy. Can these two find love and a future? You’ll have fun finding out. I did!
Note: Although this is the second book in the Perfect Fit series I didn’t feel I was missing anything by not reading the first book. That said, I hope to read Dangerous Curves Ahead soon.
