- On the Plus Side (A Perfect Fit #2) by Alison Bliss
Well they do steam things up quite a bit. And get into some very naughty situations. They were fun together, too. It's fun watching them try to figure that dynamic out and him with not seeing her as a little kid anymore. I did have a couple quibbles. And this will probably sound pretty ranty. I just had some growls with my woohoos! Obviously not a deal breaker but they knocked things from a solid 4 to a 3. WAY over the top protective and needed meds or some jail time to cool is ass down. A restraining order, maybe. Older sibling kinda thing, I guess, with cutting her off.
I was like let the damn girl talk!!! She was WAY nicer about it, too. I woulda cut someone. I thought everyone brushed off her action way too easily because 'she didn't know' but while she didn't know the extent of what would happen she did make the choice that caused it and knew that was a wrong choice when it was made. So I had a hard time on that bit.
I laughed quite often and, yeah, fanned myself, too. Oct 29, Cheri rated it it was amazing. The 2nd in this series. I binge read it today while the rain made for perfect reading weather. It was as good if not better than 1. The humor was great. The sex was steamier. I look forward to reading 3 when it debuts in ! On the Plus Side was a fun and steamy book! The main character, Val, was a sassy and confident woman. She rocked her curves and she was completely comfortable in her skin.
I really appreciated her confidence and her body positivity. Her witty remarks also made me laugh out loud numerous times! I wish I was more like her! Even though she was a bit immature at times, I really liked Val. Logan was the main male character, and he was extremely sexy. Logan had a dominant and alluring sex appeal. He wa On the Plus Side was a fun and steamy book! He was also extremely loyal to his friends, which was a very admirable trait. I liked how driven and dedicated Logan was to his passions in life.
Logan tended to be a bit overbearing at times with his overprotectiveness, just like Val's brother.
on the plus side
Both of the men drove me crazy with how protective they were. I understood that they cared about Val, and I loved that, but it was a tad overwhelming. Also, it annoyed me that they didn't always listen to Val and let her tell her side of the story. However, I still liked both of those characters.
They had a ton of naughty moments that made me want to fan myself off! If you are in the mood for some sexy time, then you definitely will enjoy this book. Their relationship started off as extremely physical, but I liked that they really got to know each other more as the book progressed. It was sweet to see them fall in love. Also, they had great banter made me cackle multiple times. Overall, this was a quick and sexy book that I would recommend to people if they are in the mood for a fun treat!
Valerie Carmichael is a vivacious, confident, party girl with curves. She never has a problem getting male attention. But the one man she never could have, just returned to town. Logan Mathis is her older brother's best friend and her long time crush. And he is back in Granite, Texas after an eight year absence. Logan is the one man that drives her crazy by making her react, frustrating her, or hurting her feelings.
He jumps to conclusions, riles her up, and then avoids her. But she has no idea Valerie Carmichael is a vivacious, confident, party girl with curves. But she has no idea that Logan suffers from the same affliction she does He is loyal to her brother and understands that Valerie always has been and will be off limits to him. He does not want to risk his friendship, and he also does not feel worthy of her. He also has some other things going on in his life like starting up his new bar and trying to help his mother.
He really does not have time to be distracted by the girl that drives him nuts. But when he needs help at the bar and she won't take no for an answer, he will have no choice but to co-exist with her. Logan tries all the tricks for denial, resistance, and avoidance, but his jealousy, possessiveness, and need for control is going to be tested to the breaking point. The teasing, taunting, and push and pull adds to the sexual tension. And once they finally break, it is all the way. Their forbidden flirting and attraction flames into a hot secret affair. Their teenage crushes have continued into adulthood with lust and unresolved feelings.
But they not only have to keep it a secret from her brother, but now they are also in a boss and employee situation. It is refreshing that Valerie is a curvy girl but never focuses on her weight.
on the plus side
She wears tight, sexy clothes and heels and is comfortable in her own skin. She is a great combo of sassy, smart, and sweet. And Logan is so enamored of her that he sees her as too good for him. Usually it is the overweight girl with the insecurities and not the tall, sexy man. He is always trying to make up for past mistakes, but he is caring and protective of those in his life.
But he is a bit overwhelmed and in over his head at times. They are living in a lie, but they are also not telling each other everything either. And little white lies can blow up in big ways. Fear of discovery, guilt, and insecurities impact them. And when it is all out in the open, they are going to have to decide to either to fight for their chance or just give up. This is a forbidden-best-friend's-little-sister-second-chance-romance with humor, heart and passion.
There were a few things near the end that bugged me a bit, but overall it was a sweet, fun, and engaging read. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I enjoyed getting more with Leah and Sam Size Matters and seeing a bit more progression in their relationship. Sam's friend, Max is also back in this book, and Valerie's brother, Brett is featured.
I am interested to see if either Max or Brett will be the hero in More to Love. I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. Are you ready to laugh out loud? Alison Bliss writes sassy quips and witty banter with the best of them and never fails to make me actually laugh!

Valerie Carmichael has always wanted Logan.

He's back in town after eight years and she's not passing on this second chance to let Logan know exactly how she feels about him and what she wants. Logan feels the same way about Valerie, but there's so many reasons he shouldn't give in to the temptation.
But she's irresistible and he does They have their bumps in the road and Valerie's brother Brett does his best to be a roadblock, but these two are meant to be. Logan and Valerie are not just hot together they are perfectly matched. The story is fun, sexy, and kept me turning the pages. I couldn't put it down until I'd read the whole book! I highly recommend it! All opinions expressed are my own. Jun 27, Julie rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of the many things that I love about Bliss is her way of consistently bringing old characters back into the new books.
It's nice to be able to catch up with the characters you fell in love with from the previous book. And in this one, Leah and Sam don't take center stage but they are a big part of the plot and our new leading lady's life. I could really just go on and on about how amazing this book and Bliss are. But it would probably make you uncomfortable after I start to drone on and on a One of the many things that I love about Bliss is her way of consistently bringing old characters back into the new books.
But it would probably make you uncomfortable after I start to drone on and on about character development, how full the plot is, the pace of the story and everything in between because I would start to sound like a nutjob. But this story really is that great. All of the characters are so fully fleshed out that you feel as if they have become your friends by the time you get to the end of the novel.
The pacing is set so that there isn't a dull moment and you'll find yourself not wanting to skip a single word because you don't want to miss something. And this is something that happens with each of the Bliss novels. You will love every single moment that you get to spend with her books. This book is sexy as hell. I was just waiting for my Kindle to burst into flames and start melting in my hands through some of these passages. I'm happily married but I decided that I need to find myself a Logan for my second marriage. You know when you read something sexy and you get paranoid thinking that everyone around you knows what dirty stuff you're reading?
I had that multiple times with this book. While at the doctor's office. I know that my cheeks were just flaming with embarrassment and I was sure that the little security cameras could see what I was reading. Which is completely illogical but always happens when I read the naughty bits in one of my Bliss books. After you check this series out, you should totally look at her other series, Tangled in Texas - it is one of my all-time favorite series!
Jun 14, Cheryl rated it really liked it. If you are looking for great contemporary romances with a side of whip cream, then; you need not look any further than Alison Bliss. This series is just what romance readers have been craving. I instantly fell in love with the first book and could not wait to get my hands on the second book. While, I enjoyed this book, I did miss the witty banter. There were so many lines that had me laughing from the first book. There was not that witty banter in this book.
Yet, the fun, flirty romance was stil If you are looking for great contemporary romances with a side of whip cream, then; you need not look any further than Alison Bliss. Yet, the fun, flirty romance was still there as well as characters that I loved.
Valerie may not be a super model but she has more confidence then any super model I know. I love that she embraced her curves. Although, she was not the only one that loved them. Logan did as well. The chemistry shared between these two was amazing. Logan is a ten I do have to give a shout out to Valier's brother, Brett. The way he acted like a older brother reacting to the way guys looked at Valerie was funny and endearing.
I can't wait to continue reading more books from this author. Jun 22, Liz rated it really liked it. What a fun and sexy read! I loved Valerie and her confidence! Logan was sexy and sweet, but also determined on doing the right thing!

Loved all the back and forth between them and then when they finally collided, watch out! Jun 07, Melinda rated it it was ok. Valerie has always turned heads and has never been short on male attention and affection from all but the man she really wants. Her brothers best friend, Logan. When he finds Val's not to-do list, he does his best to ensure they tick everything off.
Unfortunately, there wasn't much that I enjoyed about this book. The characters lacked maturity and came across as annoying, especially the way they dealt with issues. I was expecting more humor and quality as I have with the previous books I have read from this author. I will say that I enjoyed the cameo appearances from characters in the previous book of the series.
Both books in the series are standalones. May 17, Thamy rated it liked it Shelves: I'm not a fan of the idea of having a series of books on plus-size women. And yet, I love how the author deals with the theme. Check Size Matters right now if you haven't yet. Thus, I couldn't feel happier when I was offered the opportunity to review this. For this second book, we get Valerie who seems to overflow with confidence and sex appeal, except when it comes to her long-time and her brother's best friend. Logan now is back to town and has suddenly become her boss?
Because I have read it, w I'm not a fan of the idea of having a series of books on plus-size women. Because I have read it, which is the first in the series, it was impossible not to compare. While Leah, from Size Matters, lacked confidence right because of her weight, Valerie doesn't care about it so this book didn't focus on such issues. She is just an overweight heroine and the topic is rarely mentioned again.
I find that to be a win because it gives representation without becoming a fetish. At the same time, weight was an interesting topic in the first book. Without it, the second book brought nothing that interesting. In other words, we just got a romance like you and me and everyone have read anywhere else already. The other negative was Logan. I confess I started by liking him but I grew more and more tired of his reactions.
On the Plus Side
Not my book boyfriend. But don't worry, we get lots of funny scenes to compensate. Also, Valerie is a wonderful protagonist. I pity her for having those many controlling men in her life but I guess she should be fine, judging from how well she knows to defend herself. For those who enjoyed the first book, the main characters are back in this one, and get enough space for us to know how they are doing. For those who haven't read—read it.

Kidding, you really don't need the first one to understand this. Logan, the main guy, wasn't even there so the story is practically all new. It doesn't mean I enjoyed a lot reading it. This will be a perfect beach read, I'm sure. Honest review based on an ARC provided by Netgalley. Many thanks to the publisher for this opportunity. Jun 24, Deborah rated it really liked it Shelves: Val has had a crush on her brother's best friend, Logan, but he's never given her the time of day.
He left town specifically so nothing were to happen-something he had to do or face his best friend.
Now he's back in town and Val isn't quite the "little" sister anymore and she's got banging curves to boot! When Val starts working at his new bar, things escalate pretty quick! Now to keep big bro from finding out and going ballistic! I love the fact that the heroine isn't your typical, but one that Val has had a crush on her brother's best friend, Logan, but he's never given her the time of day.
I love the fact that the heroine isn't your typical, but one that embraces who she is and her curves are part of the package, period! The cover conveys that attitude as well! The book screams normal girl and that's what we are given. On the Plus side is book two in the A Perfect Fit series and each features a different curvy heroine. You can grab any of the books and read them as standalones.
She's sassy and sexy! She knows what she wants and when presented with an opportunity, she takes it! She was easy to like and the couple was easy to see together. Now I understand being protective of your little sister, but Val's brother was a notch or two over the top! He needed to back off-like way off! He also never lets her finish what she's saying-just butts right in! Annoying to say the least! She needed to get a backbone and set him straight! I highly recommend this read! Have a bit of fun and start this today! The review and ratings are solely my opinions.
Jun 23, Shanda rated it really liked it. It was fun to read a plus size heroine that is confident in her sex appeal. The exception to that is Logan whom she has been in love with forever. She also has an extremely over protective brother 3. Valerie soon convinces Logan to hire her at his new bar. Logan needs the help but Valerie also sees it as her chance to get closer to Logan.
I wanted to like this more and I probably would have rated it higher but the men in the story made this annoying. Valerie was a bit immature at times but for the most part I really liked her. Logan was rude and an immature brat. He misread situations all the time and instead of letting Valerie explain he would constantly interrupt her. I believe the author was trying to create tension or angst here but all it did was make me dislike his character. All in all, this was a cute story and I will definitely read the next book.
Jun 26, Sandy Bartles rated it it was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this very funny book about bartender Logan Mathis and Valerie Carmichael, his best friend's little sister. Nothing like having big brother around when you are trying to pick up your childhood crush! Logan and Valerie both have secrets that could tear them apart. The author is doing a fantastic job on her new plus-sized heroine series! I really enjoyed this one. It had the humor like the first book.
Valerie has so much self confidence makes me wish I was the confidant. She's always had a thing for her brother's best friend. Now Logan is back in town and maybe it's a sign to take the bull by the horns when it comes to Logan. Logan fights everything within himself when it comes to his attraction to Valerie, but when temptation is right in his bar can he find the will to no touch Va 3. Logan fights everything within himself when it comes to his attraction to Valerie, but when temptation is right in his bar can he find the will to no touch Valerie?
If you like dirty talkers then Logan is the man for you because he's champ when it comes to dirty talk. May 18, Tamara rated it it was amazing Shelves: Eight years later, Logan is back in town and that attraction from so long ago cannot be contained and the sparks that had started years before finally explode into a raging inferno that can not be denied.
I knew I was going to like this series after reading Size Matters , but now, I am hooked and totally in love. I liked Valerie when she was introduced in the last book, but her character totally shined in this installment and I believe that is what made this story so amazing. I totally fell in love with him.
On the Plus Side (A Perfect Fit #2) by Alison Bliss
Although he had a tendency to turn all cave-man-like which was totally hot by the way! There is so much to like in this story. Her characters and their situations are real which makes this story flow so effortlessly. With humor, drama and steamy sex scenes, this book has it all and was truly a delight to read. Right from the start, I knew that this was going to be a fun story, and I was not disappointed.
I simply adored this book! It was such a cute story that had me laughing out loud throughout. On the Plus Side had just the right amount of humor and passion which made this a highly enjoyable read. Alison Bliss has a true talent for creating amazing stories that readers will instantly connect too. On the Plus Side could be read as a stand-alone, but if you haven't already, I urge you to pick up Size Matters.
This is such a fun series that I know fans of contemporary romance will fall in love with it. Jun 27, Arys rated it it was amazing Shelves: Starring Valerie Carmichael, the best friend of Leah Martin heroine of book 1 , and the man she has had a crush on since she was younger. With the bold and energetic, Valerie leading the way, this book is nothing short but fun. Attending his grand opening with her brother Brett, she hoped to finally show him that she was a woman and not a little girl. Logan Mathis has always noticed Valerie, even when she was seventeen and he was twenty-one, and that was the problem.
She is off-limits as the sister of his best-friend, and he is out of her league. The story of an imaginary word that managed to sneak past our editors and enter the dictionary.
