Description
The rules of (fake) engagement . . .
Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she's sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren't enough eclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper - or the fact that he just told her mother that they're engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.
Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah's date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay "just friends," and make Leah's family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off. But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah's decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren't going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he's for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

        This mostly successful contemporary romance, set somewhere in the American South, piles on the appreciation for women of size. Sam Cooper, a gorgeous contractor with a sweet tooth, thinks bakery owner Leah Martin is delightfully curvy, but Leah keeps harping on her own weight, a habit she learned from her blithely critical mother, Nancy. To prove to Leah that she’s desirable, Sam impulsively tells Nancy that they’re engaged. Bliss’s humorous writing extends to the title, a double entendre referring as much to Sam’s rumored tiny package as Leah’s weight. Readers will cheer when Sam goes after Nancy; he may have commitment issues, but he will not allow anyone to dis his fake fiancée. Some sour moments intrude: Bliss (Playing with Fire) definitely takes Leah’s self-deprecation over the top, and an overused plot device sets the final romantic conflict in motion. Even so, two well-matched characters finding love without too much angst makes for a fun read.

      • content: With a hint of a Southern accent, narrator Violet Strong draws the listener into the romantic entanglements of Leah and Sam. Plus-size heroine Leah is at a bar with a friend when she spots Sam. Attracted to her but not wanting to get involved, Sam tries to brush her off but finds he's drawn to her. Then a misunderstanding leads Leah's mother to believe that Leah and Sam are engaged. The cast of characters--from Leah's and Sam's friends to Leah's crazy family--are successfully voiced by Strong. Especially effective are her portrayals of the heroine's self-doubts and the hero's internal struggles. Listeners will be rooting for Leah and Sam's happy ending.

        Romance novels with heroines who are not model thin are hard to find and valuable. Happily, Bliss has launched her Perfect Fit series. Leah owns a bakery and is subjected to constant comments from her mother about the need for her to lose weight. She likes Sam Cooper but feels that he is put off by her size. Then Sam tells her mother that they are engaged in an attempt to help after overhearing her mother say that Leah is undesirable, and the pair is stuck in a faux relationship and forced to struggle through a family weekend. In a series of humorous scenes, Sam tries to act obnoxious so her family won't like him, even as he realizes that he does actually want to be in a serious relationship with Leah, and not just because he can't stop eating the delicious desserts from her bakery. Leah's mother is over the top with her insults, but Leah and Sam are appealing in their fumbles and assumptions on the path toward together-forever. Fans of Jennifer Weiner will enjoy Bliss.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
