IN the meantime don't miss this great story...
On the Plus Side
Tabatha Vargo

Big girls need love, too, but at what cost?

Lilly is loaded, not only with money, but with weight. Both things she could do without. But even with her undesired millionaire status, she doesn’t hold on to false hopes of finding true love. So when a sexy stranger comes into her life dripping with seduction, she finds it hard to resist. The bigger they are the harder they fall and Lilly falls straight through the floor in love with Mr. Sexy. Too bad he’s there for all the wrong reasons.

The chance of losing it all will make you do some crazy things and Devin’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep his life together. All seems lost when out of nowhere he’s approached by a Millionaire Momma with an offer he can’t refuse. But even a womanizer like Devin has a heart and when the short, chunky girl with the carefree attitude breaks through his icy fa├žade, he finds that losing everything takes on a whole new meaning.

Jenn's Review:

I just finished reading On the Plus Side and I cant stop smiling! I loved that Lilly is just like me and probably every other plus size woman out there. Self concious! I could see myself doing and saying the same things she does through the whole book! The fat girl joke, oh yeah! Enter Devin, a hot, buff young stud who is bribed to date Lilli. I loved how he struggled with his attraction, it was so believable! I could see someone struggling with their attraction to someone completely out of their comfort zone! I absolutely loved every minute of this story, loved every character!
Just wonderful

Sheri's Review:

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book.  First off an author tacking a subject as touchy as plus size women, was scary!  I mean it sounded so cliche.  Hot dude gets paid to date plus size woman.  I can happily so it was so much more then that though!

Loved every second of this book, I could relate to this character so much.  She is what so many of us are, and its so cool to read it in a book and to feel like "Wow, this woman gets it"  Yeah, it was that good of a book. 

Lilly is not a typical socalite with money.  She is down to earth and doesn't flaunt her money.  I mean alot of people don't even know she has money.  She works at a jewlery store, because she loves the place and she lives in an apartment with a roommate.  She has the love hate thing going on with her mother, that lets face it so many of us do...

Dev on the other hand is your typical playboy, gorgeous hunk.  He know's he is HOT, he know's women love him, and he flaunts it.

He also hides this amazing soft, kindheated loving guy behind that facade.  He is extremely devoted to his father and sister, and works his butt off holding on to his familys garage.

Enter Lilly's mother and the bargain from hell.  You can all guess where it goes from here.  What you won't expect is the love, laughter, friendship and emotional pull this book will have on you.

Long after you turn the last page, Lilly and Dev will remain in your mind and heart.

Can't wait to read to read more!

(on a side note if there is any Dev's out there looking for an extremely sarcastic, slightly overweight woman, look us up :-D)

About this Author:

Tabatha's been writing since she could pick up a pencil. Her first publication was a little poem in her elementary school paper, from that point on she was hooked. When she was a teenager, she traded in her girly magazines for personalized writing notebooks.

At nineteen, she met her own personal prince charming and writing took a back burner for a while. She's now married to that prince and the mother of a beautiful seven-year-old princess/rock star. Once her daughter was born, writing came back into her life, and she finished her very first novel, Wicked Fate, in May of 2009.

She's now pursuing her English degree and she hopes to one day teach while continuing to write.
