The second book in a laugh-out-loud new contemporary romance series from Alison Bliss!

Big girls don't cry. They go after what they want.

Thanks to her bangin' curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie's luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie's determined to get Logan's attention . . . even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar.

Logan can't remember a time when Valerie didn't secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It's only when he finds Valerie's naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality.

No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.

On the Plus Side is a sweet, quick, fast paced romance. I read it one sitting and really enjoyed it. Therefore, I think it deserves a short and sweet review. After finishing On the Plus Side, I know I am becoming a fan of Alison Bliss’ A Perfect Fit Series. These books are about sexy plus size women finding love. I really enjoyed this book, in particular, because it starred Valarie who is a confident curvy woman. It is so refreshing to read a story staring heroine of size and not have her worry about her weight all throughout the story. Valarie knows she has more curves than some women. She also exercises and eats what she wants. She is proud of her curves. She knows how to dress her curves. She knows how to use her curves to get the men she wants.

Sadly, the man she wants is Logan her brother’s best friend and now her boss. What is the problem for why she can’t be with Logan? Her brother. I have to say this trope does sometimes get on my nerves. I am come on people you are both consenting adults. People up and just be together already. Yes, my only complaint about this book was all the sneaking around. What does sneaking around lead to? Hurt feelings and miscommunication. I feel like this is something that always happens in these I am in love my sibling/my parent’s best friend stories. Sometimes it is cute but most of the time it just annoying. Logan and Valerie were no exception because sometimes I wanted to smack their heads together.

I did like their chemistry. I liked that Logan never sees a woman of size. In his eyes Valerie is and always will be the sexy woman who holds his heart. This story was very cute, very sexy, and very fun. It is story about going after what you want. It is a story about not letting anyone stand in your way even yourself.  It was one of those quick reads that make you feel good. I know there was a smile on my face when I finished the last sentence. I can’t wait to read about the next sexy curvy woman finding love in book three.
