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 éclairs 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 fiancée! 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.

REVIEW

From the minute I heard that Allison Bliss was writing this book I was so excited. I have literally been counting down the days till I could read this book so when I got a chance to read this book early I was thrilled. I dived into the story as soon as I could and I love it! Size Matters with an amazing story and a spectacular first book in the Perfect fit series.

In this book we follow Sam and  Leah  .I loved that we got a Plus Size heroine in this book .Leah was just fantastic she was smart ,funny relatable and feisty . She has her own insecurities and has a very hypercritical mother but I found that as the story unfolded we got to see her come into her own and say to hell with what you think and I loved that , did I also mention she owns her own bakery! to be honestly there are times I wish I could just dive into the story have whatever baked good she created lol . Sam was just awesome ,when we meet him he doesn't want a relationship and when you hear more about his previous relationships you can really understand but you can see the moment he met Leah that went through the window even when he just didn't realize himself lol. I love how kind , understanding and loyal Sam is and also did mentioned that he's ridiculously good-looking get ready to make space for your next book boyfriend lol . I love the romance in this book, during the whole fake  engagement you  see Leah and Sam fall  in love , watching it happen over the course of this book was just fantastic .Every sweet moment , sexy moment and  even arguments between these two just make me root for them more and more. I love this story I took my time reading it simply because I didn't want it to end. With a sexy romance, a wonderful cast of  characters and a plot that will make you wish this story would never end , Alison Bliss creates a fantastic story with Size Matters.

Size matters is a sexy , funny ,heartwarming contemporary romance. This book is one of the best books I have read this year and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the Perfect Fit series. If you love all these things in your stories I suggest you get a copy .

EXCERPT
 
Leah Martin nearly choked on her beer.
“What do you mean just pick one?” Her eyes scanned the entire bar before settling back on her friend. “Pick one what?”
“A guy, of course.”
Yeah, because it was just that simple. For Valerie, maybe. Even though they were close in size, Valerie always wore her weight better and turned heads everywhere she went. It probably helped that she had expressive doe eyes, wavy platinum-blond hair, and looked more like a cutesy toy poodle any guy would give their right testicle to take for a walk.
“I hate to tell you this, Val, but that only applies to women who look like you.” If Leah had to classify herself in that same frame of reference, she’d accurately describe herself as a Bulldog. Not only did she have the breed’s innate stubborn streak, but she also had the matching broad shoulders, wide hips, large chest, and—if she didn’t lose a few pounds—probably the same short life span. “Hippy brunettes with body image issues and smudged eyeliner don’t get the luxury of just pick one.”
“Oh, shut up,” Valerie said, rolling her eyes. “Your eyeliner looks fine.”
Yep, that about sums it up. My eyeliner is the only thing that looks decent on me tonight.
The little black dress she wore was just that—too little—and was slowly squeezing the life out of her. Especially after packing on ten extra pounds in the last few months. The sheath of fabric clung to every curve, as well as every bulge. Thank God they lived in Texas instead of Alaska or an Eskimo might’ve mistaken her for a seal and tried to skin her.
“So what’s your pleasure?” Valerie asked, not giving up. “Plenty of gorgeous men in here tonight.”
“Sure, if I squint.”
“Okay, stop being negative. You’re gorgeous, and lots of men love curvy women. I should know. Now pick one.”
No point in arguing with her. Once Valerie set her mind to something, she didn’t stop until the mission was accomplished. But the only time Leah had ever had her pick of anything was when she stood in front of the doughnut case at work, deciding between a chocolate éclair or a cream cheese danish.
“How am I supposed to know who to pick? It’s not like they wear signs on their foreheads saying, ‘I dig fat chicks.’”
Valerie shot her an exasperated look. “We’ll just establish a baseline for the kind of guy you want.”
“The kind of guy I’d want wouldn’t be hanging out in a bar called Rusty’s Bucket. In fact, I wouldn’t be here either if you hadn’t forced me to come.”
 “Leah, you got dumped. Happens to all of us sooner or later.” Valerie’s voice softened as she reached for Leah’s hand. “It sucks, I know. But you’re always at work or upstairs in your apartment, which means you never leave that damn building. It’s not healthy. You can’t hide out forever.”
“I’m not hiding. I’ve just…been busy. I never imagined I’d be this swamped only a month after grand opening, and I’ve had to put in a lot of extra hours.” Leah caught Valerie’s I’m-not-buying-it expression. “Come on, Val. The wedding is tomorrow night. Everything has to be perfect because...well, you know.”
Valerie rolled her eyes. “Why does it even matter?”
“Because my reputation is at stake. It’s my cake the happy couple will be stuffing into each other’s mouths. They can choke on it for all I care, but it’s going to be the tastiest damn wedding cake they’ve ever eaten while keeling over. Everything has to go as smoothly as possible, and I have a million things to do before tomorrow night. I still need to—”
Valerie raised her hand to stop her from continuing. “What you need is a break. Let’s find some guys to dance with and have a few hours of fun before you lock yourself up in the cave again. Just humor me, okay? Now, what would say your dream guy’s most attractive quality would be?”
Leah sighed. “A pulse.”
“No vampires. Check. What else?”
“I don’t know. This is stupid.” Leah caught the disappointment in Valerie’s eyes and groaned. “Okay, fine. I guess I’d want…”
Her gaze sifted through the crowd, landing on two men at the bar. While the one standing motioned to the bartender, the other rolled up the sleeves of his blue button-down shirt, drawing Leah’s attention to his tanned, muscular forearms. When he finished, he bumped his elbow against the other man’s ribs and said something that made them both laugh. The warm, amused smile he wore sent a zing of pleasure through Leah, like she’d been given a intravenous shot of serotonin. Him. I’d want him.

Top 5 Favorite Quotes from Size Matters
 
1.
“So I guess you don’t sleep in the nude?” Sam asked.
“Of course not,” Leah replied, “because I…well, I’m fat. I don’t take my clothes off unless I absolutely have to, and sleeping doesn’t require it.”
Sam eyed her tight dress and then met her gaze head-on. “That depends on who you’re sleeping with.”
 
 
2.
“Max said he has a small penis.”
Leah laughed. “Max has a small penis?”
“No. Sam does.”
She stopped laughing. “That’s not funny, Valerie.”
“Who’s laughing?”
 
3.
“Just a cake?” Leah gawked at him. “I’ll have you know, I use only the best ingredients in each of my creations and make everything from scratch. It’s my ex-boyfriend’s wedding, and I spent weeks planning out every detail of this cake, down to the Bavarian cream filling and the last edible flower.”
Sam chuckled softly. “So let me get this straight. You need to deliver your ex-boyfriend’s wedding cake, topped with plants, and filled with something that sounds like a venereal disease…and people are actually going to eat it?”
“Well, I suppose, if that’s the way you want to look at it, but—”
He stood up straight and clapped his hands together. “Okay, let’s go then.”
“Huh?”
“You need a ride, don’t you?”
“Yes, but—”
“Well, then what are we waiting for? I wouldn’t miss this for anything.”
4.
It was an impolite kiss. One filled with power and frustration. The kind of kiss two people share in the privacy of a bedroom while lying naked together between sweat-soaked sheets. This was not the way you kiss someone in front of a crowd of strangers.
But who gives a shit?
Leah didn’t. And apparently Sam didn’t either.
5.
 
Sam couldn’t take it any longer.
He’d watched Leah stand there in front of her ex-boyfriend, blushing and stammering uncomfortably as she cracked fat jokes about herself. He was sure it was some sort of defense mechanism, but he didn’t feel sorry for her. Nope, he was too pissed off to feel bad. So he’d marched over and planted a kiss on her, hoping to give her a reality check.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
 

Alison Bliss grew up in Small Town, Texas, but currently resides in the Midwest with her husband and two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it's no wonder she writes "girl books." She believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it's obviously meant to be. Alison pens the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, "Romance...with a sense of humor."
