    I do not like the premise of the book, but aside from that, it just was not that good. He knew his mate was out there for 17 years and did nothing to find her?! Just not believable. Not. At. All. Ok they were kids (like 14) when they last saw each other and her family moved away (but not very far). They were both awkward teenagers. Neither expressed love or even kissed. But he said he and his bear knew then that she was his mate. I don't get it. However, as far as 2nd chance goes, it was not really offensive. They both had healthy sex lives. Of course, she never wonders why he did not seek her out. Because she is totally clueless. She is human so I am ok with her getting on with her life. The story just does not flow. Too many secondary characters for a short novella resulting in too few scenes bewteen the MCs. I will try another one (because they are free on KU) that does not have the 2nd chance aspect to see if it works better for me.

    Still looking for a date? Mrs. Wilder at PDA can help!Wow! it is okay getting hotter, sexier, and more intriguing! The second book in the PDA series is even better than the first! Milly has done it again. You will laugh, get irritated, aggravated, and excited! And now a bit about the story...Now that Tally has found her perfect matches, Nita has decided to take the plunge and follow in her cousins footsteps. She has never found a man she trusts or that would accept her curvy body. Now that she is at peace in her skin she is trying again, if only she can find a truthful man that will love her for her. When she comes face to face with her high school crush and doesn't recognize him, will she forgive him when he doesn't let on to his identity? Favorite passages: - “What are you looking for? A hookup? Two men? Marriage, babies and picket fence?” - If she got any more turned on by thinking of Ky, she’d end up ravishing him in the woods.- She shouldn’t be throwing herself at him like he was the last chicken wing and she hadn’t had dinner. - “We both know where this is going. The question is, your bed or mine?” - “Your body is an addiction I never want to give up.”- “I think,” she panted. “The better words are...you’re goddamned huge!” - “Someone who wants to genuinely be with me. No drama. No bullshit.” - “I kinda ran out of clean clothes.” “Clothes are overrated.” - “We’ll figure it out. If you need me to go up there and castrate him, say the word.” - They were wet, muddy and covered in leaves. If that wasn’t wild sex she had no idea what was. - “A bear is only as smart as the woman who puts up with his growling.”

    This was another amazing book by Milly Taiden. I couldn’t put it down from the beginning to the end. The hot sex makes this an 18 or up book. The scenes are hot panty wetting and the dirty talk is the best. The characters have such real life problems and suck you in. I love all the series that she has written and this is another that I can’t wait for it to continue. Dating in today’s world is a completed thing and finding your partner even harder. So when you can’t find that special someone why not go to the paranormal they have a shifter out their just for you!!!!“Bad Nita!” This guy needs your help, not for you to drool over his passed out body.”Nita Islas a super curvy women with a problem men.

    Milly Taiden has another hit on her hands. She shows us that the love you have when you are young never leaves you and it just maybe the one for you. Geeky Ky looses Nita when her family moves away. He hasn't been able to find her he knows she is his mate he has always known it. Nita's cousin Tally had great luck with the Paranormal Dating Agency so Nita decides to give it a try for her. When Nita arrives at the cabin up in the mountains she finds Ky unconscious laying on the floor nearly naked. Nita has no idea this Ky is her Ky but she likes what she sees. Passions flare between the two of them. This book is very much for the 18 and older because of the sexiness that is true to Milly Taiden books. The passion in this book is blow the sheets off the bed hot oh wait do they even make it to the bed......lol.

    I didn't give it a higher review because I didn't like the fact that the H knew for sure when he was fourteen (and he mentions it multiple times) that the h was the one for him, his mate, but then he still slept around in the years they were apart. And let's face it, he says he tried to find her but couldn't because she was never listed, that's BS because since he was a super smart geek, that wouldn't be a obstacle. Anyway apart from this two things it was a good book.

    4-4.5 starsThis was a really good story. I liked both Nita and Ky very much and their story was sweet and sexy. This is the first book I've read by this author (no I didn't read book #1 first) and I liked it well enough that I'm planning to read more of her work in the future.Nita is a curvy latina woman that works as a doctor's assistant. She had body issues but has worked hard to get past them and now embraces her body. She's dated but tends to hold back emotionally and this seems to be for the best since the men she dates don't seem to be in it for the long haul. Her cousin, Tally (heroine from book #1) has just gotten involved with 2 shifters and is very happy so this prompted Nita to try finding someone for herself.Ky is a bear shifter and head of his clan. He grew up rather geeky and small which put him on the harsh end of a lot of teasing as he grew up, even from his own father. Around the age of 14, Ky met Nita and both he and his bear knew that she was their "one". He was too shy to do more than be friends with her but they had a deep connection. Unfortunately she had to move away suddenly and Ky couldn't track her down. He's never found another woman he wants to mate, always knowing that Nita is the only woman that would do.Nita goes to a paranormal dating agency that her cousin used to meet her men. She indicates that she's looking for a guy that she can have a connection with, someone that will love her for her, curves, humor and all. Ky didn't sign up for a dating agency but his sister did it for him and comes up with Nita's name. She doesn't give Ky much choice as the date is set before he knows about it. He also doesn't know it's Nita until she shows up at his house. Things go a bit wonky with their first meeting as someone knocks Ky out in his kitchen and Nita comes upon him half naked and unconscious. She rouses him and he recognizes her but she doesn't recognize him. Ky figures it's for the best that she doesn't know who he is as he's rather embarrassed by his geekiness back then and he doesn't want her to think of him that way. He's grown a lot so he does look quite different but there are enough similarities that I did have to suspend disbelief a bit about the fact that Nita didn't realize who Ky was or that she didn't at least ask because of the similarities between the current Ky and the Ky from her teens. Regardless of the mistaken identity, things progress very well between Nita and Ky. There's a strong chemistry between them and they have problems keeping their hands off each other from the beginning. As they hang out they do find that they're very comfortable with each other and get along well. Nita is happy that Ky seems to like her for herself and is interested in exploring things further but fears going too fast and messing up what's growing between them. Or course things are too hot between them for them to go too slow and soon they're exploring their sexual compatibility (which is quite good). There are some issues that Ky has to deal with having to do with another bear clan that's trying to take their land and it brings a bit of action into the story. There is a little bit of drama relationship wise that has to be dealt with but I was happy with the way things played out, leaving Nita and Ky ready to start their HEA together.This was a really enjoyable story. Ky and Nita made a great couple and I liked seeing them get together. Outside of the 1 point of suspending disbelief (about her not realizing who he was), I have no complaints about this book and overall, I really liked it. I'm planning to go back and read book # 1 soon and then I'll probably continue the series when book #3 comes out. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up! :D

    Another 'Meh' read for me. Hotter sex and better writing elsewhere. Not worth the $2.99 currently being charged for it.

    I am a fan of shapeshifter books and bear shifters are among my favorite kind. I was very happy to receive an advanced copy of Geek Bearing Gifts by Milly Taiden. Taiden is one of my go-to authors when I want a good story with an ultra-sexy flair. Her heroines are sassy and her heroines are indeed swoon-worthy.Nita Islas wants a man. Well, she really wants to find true love but she wants hot, steamy, sweaty sex along with that true love too. Knowing that her friend and cousin Talia found success in finding two wolf mates, she decides to give the Paranormal Dating Agency a try. Nita really has very low expectations about her setup date will pan out. Yet, she makes the drive to the mountains where her date lives. When she arrives Nita’s expectations immediate lower upon her arrival to her date’s cabin. After knocking on his door and receiving no reply, her expectations lower even further when she takes in her surroundings. She thinks she’s been set up with an older man who won’t be able to do anything for her in the screaming-O department. Snooping further into his cabin reveals a tall, built, and very sexy man lying on the floor unconscious. Her nursing background kicks in and she goes to his aid while also subtly feeling him up. I mean…she’s a nurse but she isn’t dead, right. LOLImagine Ky Stone’s shock when he wakes on the floor, hazy about what happened to him, with his long lost mate tending to him. Ky thinks he’s dreaming or hallucinating or something. He doesn’t expect to see the woman who stole his heart when he was a young, gangly, and geeky teen. Ky knew back then that Nita was his mate but his heart was absolutely broken when she moved away without a word. He refused to give his heart to another one and over the woman he had lost and loved. Fortunately for him, Ky had a meddling sister who refused to give up on her brother’s happiness. Because of her interference … er … intervention, Ky and Nita were able to reunite. Problem is: Nita has NO IDEA who Ky is. Sure, she fondly remembers her best friend who she loved dearly. But the man before her is not that man. The man before her is a specimen of masculine physical perfection. Tall, toned, and built like a tank. He makes all her girly parts tingle.Being a man, Ky doesn’t think to tell Nita who he is. No…he wants to show her the man he is and not the boy that he was so he immediately begins to seduce her in earnest. And Nita is 100% on board with BEING seduced. But, all is not quiet up in the mountains. Ky was assaulted in his home and someone is trespassing on his sleuth. And as chief, he has to protect his family, kin, and territory. But Ky’s worlds shifts on its axis when his mate and his trouble collide. Ky uses his strength and his brawn to protect what’s his…at any cost.I really enjoyed Geek Bearing Gifts because it was hot, sexy, and very fun to read. The primary characters were fun and engaging, and their interactions between themselves and the secondary characters – especially David – was hilarious. Taiden definitely knows how to write stories about sexy heroines and the brawny men who try to tame them. I can’t wait to read the next installment in the PDA series.

    I loved this book.Nita is the cousin to Tally, and she is tired of having stupid idiots. She wants more in a relationship than...what she has been having lately. As a youngster she was always teased because of her weight. People only took note of her when they needed someone - except for her childhood friend who she fell in love with, who she could depend on - then they moved away...Finally Nita gives in and have a chat to Mrs Wilder, owner of the Paranormal Dating Agency. Well this older lady has enough sassy juice to make you blush... And she can hook up 2 people who is Ky Stone & Nita Islas has been hooked up by Mrs Wilder. Ky's sister did this for him...Ky was most unhappy - but he had no choice. Nita couldnt wait to meet this shifter Mrs Wilder has chosen to be her date. Ok she had to travel out of the city - but she needed a break as well, right.Beholden when she comes into her date's home... and find him out cold on the floor - with just a towel around his waist... Ky wakes up to this lady and realizes ..... well I am not spoiling you will all the fun.There will be hot fun, hot shifter. laughter, danger & secrets. You can only find out if you actually read this book and it is really fun!!

    Stars: 4Overall: I really loved this book and the idea of an older shifter woman starting her own dating service and helping shifters and human alike to find their soulmates. There was just something magical about the story. My only con is that I wish the book was longer and focused a little less on sex. I think that if the author would've added an extra 50 to 100 pages, as readers we could have gotten to know the couple better. I also really love that the author celebrates larger woman and embraces their curves instead of wanting to hide them. One of my favorite parts of the story was when Nita first walked into Ky's house and found him lying naked on the floor, well he had a towel on, but really he was naked in her mind. lol I also loved that Ky had been in love with Nita for over 17 years and they were finally reunited with each other. Characters: Nita & KyPage Turner: YesSeries Cont: YesRecommend: YES!!

    I am giving this review for author Milly Taiden. This is book 2 of the Paranormal Dating Agency series by the author.Nita Islas went to Mrs. Wilder after her cousin Tally got hooked up with 2 alphas and she wanted to see if she could find someone for her but little did she know who that someone was. Kyle Stone is the alpha bear of his clan and has known Nits since they were 15 years old but he never thought after she moved away he would see her again.OMG this character Nits has got such a smart mouth on her it is just comical on how the author wrote her character. Her and the Ky character play off so well that it is like your everyday couple. The rhythm and flow of the story works so well together.This is a great paranormal romance story and this series is a must for any readers library. It is best to read book 1 first because the character of Nita is introduced in it.

    Another favorite series for me from Ms. Taiden!She never fails to suck me into a book to where I have to read it all in one siting. This one was smoking hot! A sexy alpha bear shifter and sassy female! It made for an extremely erotic and funny read. It was also incredibly sweet. I really adore Ky and how much he loves Nita. Nita is pretty awesome too.My only complaint is that it was too short. I really loved both these characters and would love more from them. I can not wait to get more in this series!

    The h was too stupid to realize that the guy with the same first name, had the same eyes, was a bear shifter and who lived in the same general area was her childhood crush. And the H knew she was his mate for 17 years, but didn't look for her in that time and slept with other women because he was "no saint". Blah.

    An enjoyable read and I was looking forward to Nita's story but it is just too short. Nita is a cousin of Talia in book 1. She also asks Gerri for help with Gerri’s dating agency.Whilst I enjoyed it very much I would have liked a bit more background on Ky's clan and his role as chief. Nita only meets three people, Ky’s sister Jess who contacted Gerri, Liam his second and David. There was no information on how the clan worked or if Nita would be accepted. As Ky's mate I thought Nita would have to interact with the clan.Ky is silly and makes a mistake by not admitting straight away that he and Nita were friend’s years before and that he had feelings for her, (different surname from childhood).When Nita finds out Ky is really her childhood friend she is understandably angered but in going to have it out with Ky gets caught up in a feud with another bear clan. I loved that Nita was brave enough to look after herself against a bear.

    I enjoyed this book and am looking to more from this series. Milly Taiden just doesn't disappoint. This one has to be my favorite so far. They have humor as well as the alpha thing going, but the women are strong and don't put up with crap from the guys. I loved it. When Nita Islas was tired of being wanted for the wrong reasons by the men she dated she turns to Mrs. Wilder at the Paranormal Dating Agency. Her friend Tally found her double shot of perfect happily ever after there with a couple of wolf shifters and she wants to see if Mrs. Wilder can find someone or someones for her. After an uncomfortable meeting with Mrs. Wilder that was hilarious to read she is informed that she has the perfect choice for her and sets up a weekend date. When Nita arrives at her dates house she wasn't sure what to expect but finding him knocked out on the floor wasn't it. And this scene had me cracking up hard. She feels an instant attraction to him and also a twinge of recognition.The moment Kyer Ash woke up from being knocked out and scented someone next to him his bear went ballistic. Then it hit him, he knew the scent. It was his mate, his Nita. The girl he went to school with and tutored. The last time he had seen Nita he had been a gangling teen that looked nothing like he does now, he had also been extremely shy and unable to tell her she was his. His sister had just broke the news to him before he got hit over the head that she had set him up on a blind date and she would be there shortly. . He never expected the woman his sister set him up with to be his mate. Now that she was there he couldn't let her go again. She didn't recognize him as her best friend from high school and he never corrected her. Keeping this secret is bound to bite him on his bear butt right? Will she let it keep them apart? And not only will secrets interfere in their mating dance but danger is coming for both of them.I love this series so much and this book was a super scorcher! A word of warning be prepared to melt when you read this and have a cold drink at the ready. Kyer was so alpha as well as being a bit geeky. It just made him super hot in my book. I loved Nita's spunk and putting these two together made a funny, loving, panty melting read. The characters were perfect together. And let me tell you the steamy scenes should have set my Kindle of fire. Each scene is descriptive enough to give a girl palpitations. Milly Taiden rocked my world with this one. I will be recommending this one!

    Series: Paranormal Dating Agency #2Category /Genre: Paranormal RomanceRecommended for: 18+ due to sexual contentGrammar/editing: A – near perfectReceived from: Milly Taiden (in exchange for an honest review)When Nita was in high school, her best friend was a bear shifter. Horribly shy and self-conscience of her weight, she never told him how she felt about him. When her family moved back to the city, she never got the chance to even say good-bye. When he was in high school, Ky knew that he had met his mate – the pretty, curvy girl he was tutoring in math. Unfortunately, he stuttered, was too thin, and was self-conscious of his status as a geek. When she moved away, he and his bear were lost without their mate. Seventeen years later, both of them having loving, meddling families who have set them up with the Paranormal Dating Agency. Sometimes that’s all that fate needs to put things back on track. Now the gorgeous, chief of the Stone Clan, Ky doesn’t look like the awkward teenager that Nita once knew. What is he to do when she doesn’t recognize him? I love Nita. She has voiced exactly what we all want in a mate. Love should be more than models’ bodies and great sex (though those are great, too). True love includes compatibility of intellect and ideals. The best romantic relationship includes friendship. She has compared every man she has ever been with to the friendship she knew in school with “the one who got away.” Mrs. Wilder reminds me a bit of Dr. Ruth – does anyone remember that wonderful lady? She is straight-talking, a little kinky, and (paranormally) efficient as a modern-day Cupid…and she bakes!This story has more than a few giggles, a few gasps of concern, and tons of hot-steamy-sexy loving. Definitely not for the prudish, but I have never been accused of owning that attribute by anyone who actually knows me. If you are ready for a little fun and a lot of steam – read this book. Read this series!Best news of the week: there will be another book in this series! I am an avid fan of Ms. Taiden’s books and will always be available when she releases again.

    I had higher hopes for this second book in a series considering it was not a novella and was supposed to be 180+ pages. In actuality, it was 170 pages and all double spaced even after changing my iPad's settings. So probably more like 140 pages and it showed. Along with the shorter than advertised length, the book was written on a fifth grade reading level as was the plot.Quick Rundown and pretty much full plot overview: Chick signs up with Paranormal Dating Agency cause she reminisces about her childhood friend (who was a bear shifter) and she's ready for love. Childhood friend turns out to be Dude who leads his bear pack upper west pacific country. A blind date is set up, Chick doesn't recognize Dude because he's no longer the skinny nerd but a buff bear alpha, insta-lust-love, then she finds out who he is, runs away only to return. "Big" fight scene with rival bear pack, HEA.Characterization: Mediocre but considering the length of the novel, that's to be expected, I suppose. The author did a lot of "telling" instead of "showing" so what I gathered from the characters wasn't felt or expressed but just related to me. Secondary characters were pretty nonexistent.Plot: Awful. My overview says it all. In the beginning, chick says, "I just want honesty" and then a couple pages later, the Dude blatantly lies by omission. Don't play poker with me if you're just going to show all your cards. The fight scene at the end was a joke and eye-roll worthy. Bad guy says, "I'll kill your woman if you don't let us fish from your stream" and then bears tumble around. Some of the worst lines I've ever read occurred at the end. Sex scenes were kinda hot but lacking in such a short book. there was no love connection in these sex scenes.Overall: In my opinion, this isn't one of those "I don't want to think books", this is one of those books that's written for people who can't actually think. I even tried reading the first few pages of another book by this author in another series and just couldn't. Same dumb shit. Looks like all her books are on Kindle Unlimited so if this book is for you and you're a member, it's a free read.

    Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★★After having no success in the love life arena, our heroine Nita decides to take her cousin’s advice and contact Mrs. Wilder, a paranormal matchmaker. Nita is looking for a deep emotional connection. Although fanciful, she believes that kind of bond should exist for her. If there is amazing sex, that is a bonus. Her best friend from high school, Ky Stone, was a bear shifter and the love of her life even though they were purely platonic. She has measured every relationship since then to him. Ky is now chief of his bear clan and pinning away for the mate he lost 17 years previously when Nita moved away. His animal identifies her immediately. However, his physical appearance has changed so much from the awkward geeky teen she had fallen in love with that she doesn’t recognize him.Nita finds herself caught in “a naughty version of Goldie Locks”. It is a tantalizing saga that is inclusive of intense sexual encounters based on friendship and chemistry. It is a happily ever after, fairy tale must read.Hero –Ky Stone: 5 starsHeroine –Nita: 5 starsSteam: 5 stars Plot: 5 stars Cliffhanger: NoWould I recommend this book: Yes! Milly Taiden successfully spins an erotic tale of passion, need, and symbiotic introspection in her Novella, "Geek bearing gifts". Millie aptly takes the dream of having a relationship not based on sex and complements it with erotica.Would I recommend this author: Yes! Milly Taiden does not disappoint with this funny, sexy storytelling! This is author should be on all must read list!***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***Geek Bearing GiftsMilly Taiden

    Great Story!The romance in this story is to die for. Of course the sex was awesome too. A boy and a girl in high school, both are basically outcasts. They come together by him tutoring her. Ky is a bear shifter but he's also very scrawny and wears glasses so he gets picked on by everyone in his clan, including his father. Nita is a big and curvy girl who get picked on by all the other girls. As an adult Nita has come to terms with her body and even thinks she's sexy. But all the guys she meets want something from her, or lie. She hates liars!! She has given up on dating and has closed off her a long time ago. But she's very lonely especially since her cousin has found the men of her dreams (from Book 1). She decides to try the Paranormal Dating Service since it worked so well for her cousin. Well, she gets matched with nicest sexiest man she has ever seen. His name is Ky, and he also happens to be her. Best friend from school. Of course, she doesn't recognize him because he looks nothing like he used to. Only his eyes look somewhat familiar. When Ky sees her he cant believe his luck. This is the girl has been in love with since he was 14 yrs old. He knew then that she was his mate. That is all I'm going to say. Just giving a lil background to get you started. Unrequited love from the past has a chance to become a reality. The main subject of the story is one that been told thousands of times. What makes one different from the other is the way it's written and the characters' personality. This story is well written. I really got to know and connected with the characters. A very good read. This is part of a series but each are stand alone books. I hope I've given enough info to make the impression that this story is worth a read.

    This is a decadently sinful story. I devoured it in a single sitting. This was a vividly graphic and all too real story that captures your heart and your mind. Her fantastic views on dating in the shifter world are one of a kind. The author made me laugh, she made my pulse race and my heart stutter, all the while, commenting on society and how we treat one another. Taiden works her literary magic to create a one-of-a-kind gem with this one. The comical and inviting main character is easy to identify with. I felt like I really knew her, getting to know her past and what she wanted now and in the future. I appreciate that she is larger and is (usually) ok with it, and that she doesn’t magically become skinny when she mates with her shifter. This novella is all about being true to who you are, both inside and out. Now, the male lead is no slouch either. Taiden spends just as much time and effort developing him. The peeks at his past let readers know what his secret is, allowing you to have an inside scoop on the whole story. The main characters’ outrageous yet to the point statements not only make you giggle but make them seem extra real. Taiden developed the relationships between the main characters quite well, as well as the bear-shifter persona and all that went with it. This novella is touching yet sexy as anything. It’s a quick, easy, steamy read easily savoured. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    Delicious Smexy Bear!!There is so much to love here that I was able to overlook a major plot issue. Sure I rolled me eyes every time it came up or I thought about it, but it did not dampen me enjoyment of this smexy bear read.Nita is sassy, curvy and fun. We met her in the last book and of course love her already. She is matched with a grumpy bear shifter, Ky, who happens to be her same friend from childhood. Um, here it comes, she doesn't know it is him because now he is hunky instead of a scrawny geek. WTF, seriously? Is there an abundance of bear shifters named Kyler? Not a common name at all. I will chalk it up to some sort of weird denial she had going on. I kind of wish the big ole bear shifter hadn't wimped out so much.Other than that, the story is awesome and uber smexy. Oh yeah, gimme a smexy bear who loves his honey any day! Lauren Sweet delivers another delicious narration. I adore her pace and the energy of the read. She has a real way with the naughty reads. I am very excited to find she is doing the whole series. Distinct voices and engaging characterizations.

    This is a great series; this is book two in the Paranormal Dating Agency Series. Nita wants to find true love because she is tired of the terrible relationships she has had in the past. She has always had a thing for her old friend from school but she moved away years ago and was too afraid to tell him how she felt. Since her cousin found true love through the Paranormal Dating Agency Nita decides to give it a try, maybe she can meet and fall in love with a sexy shifter as well. Ky Stone has been in love with Nita since they were in high school but when she moved away and broke his heart he has never found another love. His meddling sister has fixed him up on a blind date which he is fighting. While fighting with his sister someone knocks him out, when he wakes up he thinks he is dreaming because Nita is there trying to help him. He soon realizes that Nita is his blind date. This book is HOT and has a sexy bear!! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    Geek Bearing Gifts is the second book I've read from Milly Taiden, and I plan to keep on reading this author's books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Geek Bearing Gifts and loved the characters. This book was well written, had well developed characters, and an intriguing storyline that made me you wish the story could go on forever.Nita wants to find a man who will accept her curves, so she contacts Mrs. Wilder, the paranormal matchmaker. Mrs. Wilder is a hoot. I love the questions she asks...."Are you looking for a man to do some naughty things to you while you're tied up?" Lol! Anyway, Mrs. Wilder sends her to Ky.....turns out Nita and Ky know each other from school years ago. Ky instantly recognizes her but Nita doesn't recognize him, since he looks different. Ky is no longer the skinny geek. The chemistry between Nita and Ky are astounding and you could tell these two, are meant to be.This book had me laughing throughout most the book. The only time I wasn't laughing, was when I was blushing from all the hot sex scenes!!! I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it and this author!

    This was a great read. I loved every minute of it, Milly has a way with wordsThey seem to just leap of the page. I have not found a book by her that i have not Absolutely loved. I bought this book last night, and started reading it. I was goingTo read just a little then get some sleep. I woke up reader in hand. And the sun was up.I did it again the just one more chapter then ill put it down. Funny how that never happens, and I’m reading through the night, because i can not put the book down. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. I love a story where the heroine is a big beautiful Woman.This one is close to my heart, my husband and i met as young kids. Then I moved away I’m a big lady and he liked me anyway. I returned and ran into him again.Much older and smarter. And now 23 yrs later we are still together. I may just reread this one again.The book is a stand alone, but the first book Twice the growl is oh so good too. Now about the story. Read below.
