My Rating: 5 stars


When a small town’s hottest lumberjack falls for the full figured curvy girl, people take notice, in this award winning, friends-to-lovers romance from bestselling author, Lydia Michaels.

When Finnegan McCullough catches a woman trespassing on his family’s Mountain, he’s captivated by blue eyes and thick thighs. Mallory Fenton might have just moved to their small town, but she won’t be a stranger for long. Funny and sexy as hell, this beautiful distraction quickly becomes Finn’s greatest obsession.

Mallory ran to Center County to escape her past and reinvent herself. Befriending a chiseled, flannel-covered lumberjack was never part of the plan. Sexy men rarely notice her. And, after years of being the ‘fat girl’, she can’t figure out what a gorgeous man like Finn might want from her.

A realistic and heartwarming romance that proves love and beauty come in all shapes and sizes.

My Review:

I loved this book, the characters are interesting, likable and well developed. The McCullough Family are great and not too heavy on the Irish stereotypes. Mallory is so relatable as a character, her insecurities and weight issues are something a lot of us can connect to.

I would love a sexy warm hearted lumberjack like Finn who is very family orientated to come into my life. He is the quintessential book boyfriend.

This is a series and it is better to read in order just to avoid spoilers but each features a new central character.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
