When Meredith is stood up by another blind date, she hooks up with sexy coworker Sam at the local bar. She’s drooled over Sam for months, but getting to know him better in a back booth makes her wish guys like him want to stick around.
Sam’s been attracted to Meredith’s lush curves, bright-green eyes and throaty laugh ever since he met her. Sharing drinks, bad-date stories and sexy innuendo makes him like her even more. But her lousy one-night stands have convinced her she’s not worth a second glance. Spankings and a little bondage just might help the voluptuous Meredith understand that not only can they share adventurous sex and pizza at midnight, but a future together as well.

Meredith Larkin, a full figured gal, agrees to go on a blind date. He supposedly likes curvy girls and is really nice. But when Meredith is on her second drink and her date is 20 minutes late, she thinks he took one look at her and ran. Sam Burrows hasn’t dated much since he broke up with his last girlfriend and didn’t want to be bar hopping with his buddy. As it turns out, he’s not there to be a barhopping buddy, he’s there to check out his friends blind date, Meredith. When he sees Meredith at the bar he is surprised since he knows her. They have worked together for a while and he has always found her attractive. When his friend sees Meredith he calls her fat and leaves her sitting there alone. Sam doesn’t think that Meredith is fat, in fact, he thinks she is the perfect size and takes this opportunity to approach her.
I enjoyed this short. At only about 50 pages there isn’t a lot of depth to the characters but since they weren’t strangers it was easier to accept the way their relationship developed. It was nice to see a full figured heroine. My main complaint was that Meredith goes on about how she likes her body and accepts it as it is but then is extremely shy and nervous about Sam seeing her naked. Those two viewpoints didn’t seem like they meshed well. If she is proud of her body, would she be shy about being naked with Sam? I did like who Sam dealt with her shyness with him. How he draws her out of her self consciousness and into the pleasure that they can share.
The sex is hot. There is some bondage and spanking but its pretty light. Meredith refers to herself as kinky in the bedroom. While we don’t get a lot of information on Sam’s past in the bedroom, he did have some restraints in his closet so I assumed he was a fan of kinky as well. Both seemed open to trying new things so I can imagine that they will have a hot and varied sex life.
