An ex-Texas Ranger is hired to protect a beautiful plus-size model from a possible serial killer! They mix like oil and water but in bed, their uncontrolled passion ignites an inferno! Can their passion for one another turn into love?
Two plus-sized models have died and Melissa Lambert is angry at her agent for hiring a body guard to protect her. She is angry because she doesn’t think she needs someone to protect her and she thinks she can take care of herself.
In A Perfect Fit, plus-sized model Melissa and security company owner Beau Evans get to lock horns and also tangle together between the sheets. Beau first sees Melissa when she struts her stuff on the runway and she stirs things in him that should not be stirring as he has a job to do. Their angry exchange about him having been hired to protect her leads to the bedroom and things are definitely hot between the sheets.
There were a few things about the story that irritated me just a little. I hate it when authors throw things into the story and then don’t mention it again and expect the reader to forget it as well just because they have. One thing was the fact that the pair had sex without a condom. It is mentioned that the possibility of her falling pregnant is high and then the rest of the times they make love it is done without the mention of any condoms and also when she comes back to visit there is no mention of pregnancy or any other reference to that information at all. So, what happened?
The deaths of the two models also seemed a bit too contrived for the story and were just a plot device used to get Melissa and Beau together and even that threat disappears quite quickly. A real threat would have made the whole story a bit more interesting and substantial. Then there were the times when she mentions ménage relationships and you sort of get the feeling she would be interested and Beau has two other brothers; they are triplets but it isn’t taken any further because Beau doesn’t share his women, so why keep on mentioning it?
I didn’t really like the character of Melissa as I couldn’t get a fix on her and what she was really after. Beau was easier to understand but sometimes his abrupt changes in demeanor were a little strange as well.
Ms. Richards has written a satisfying story that was a good read to while away an afternoon. Try it and see what you think!
