Copywriter Ruby Sugars is in a rut. Her life consists of the following: long hours, boring neutral colors and regular fat-shaming from her stick insect-looking boss. But Ruby isn't really a Bland Betty—she's a complete Bettie Page hottie, with an enviable collection of vintage couture and very naughty vixen lingerie. Now if only she could channel that girl into her real life….
Cue Ruby's best friend, whose recent fixation is "fantasy matchmaking." She's decided that all Ruby needs is one night with a sexy, delectable man—one with a serious thing for curvy pinup girls. And "Lancer" is hot enough to make any girl's fantasy come true.
For one night, it's pure, X-rated hotness. But come the next morning, this brand-spankin'-new bombshell will get the shock of her life when the man she vowed to see only once shows up again…as her new boss.
This was a quick, sizzling romance that I ended up enjoying. I was very intrigued by the concept of Ruby gathering up the guts to have a one night stand not knowing that the guy would ultimately be her new boss.
The way that Ruby and Colin met was already packed with heat, wanting to explore their sexual fantasy in a one night stand that quickly formed into a sizzling relationship.
I loved the message of Ruby embracing her curves and not listening to her haters a.k.a her current boss and co workers that constantly make fun of her size. Though it took her a while she finally embraced her inner vixen being strong enough to show who she really was. With her strong capabilities at work as well.
While I would have loved for the story to be even more developed, in the end I enjoyed Bombshell by Jody Gehrman. It had a great message of embracing who you truly are while having a sizzling romance that made me happy.
