BLOG TOUR: On the Plus Side by Tabatha Vargo REVIEW

Let me tell you a story:

I am Tabatha Vargo's biggest fan! (no pun intended) She is an amazing person inside and out! When I beta read her debut novel Wicked Fate, I did not think it could get better.  But, she then was telling me about this book, On the Plus Side, and I thought "Sounds Awesome!!"

When she asked me to beta read this, I jumped at the chance. I knew the book would be good because Tabatha is a amazing author.  However, the point of this is...Tabatha didn't just write a book with some characters.  She wrote about people, with feelings! One thing that I will say about Tabatha is that she is the most descriptive author I KNOW!  I cried with this book, got mad at this book and LOVED EVERY SINGLE WORD OF THIS BOOK.

I am not saying this because Tabatha has become my friend, I saying this because it is the truth.  Before long she will be a household name and she deserves it!

Now, onto the tour and review:

About the book:

Big girls need love, too, but at what cost?

Lilly is loaded, not only with money, but with weight. Both things she could do without. But even with her undesired millionaire status, she doesn’t hold on to false hopes of finding true love. So when a sexy stranger comes into her life dripping with seduction, she finds it hard to resist. The bigger they are the harder they fall and Lilly falls straight through the floor in love with Mr. Sexy. Too bad he’s there for all the wrong reasons.

The chance of losing it all will make you do some crazy things and Devin’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep his life together. All seems lost when out of nowhere he’s approached by a Millionaire Momma with an offer he can’t refuse. But even a womanizer like Devin has a heart and when the short, chunky girl with the carefree attitude breaks through his icy fa├žade, he finds that losing everything takes on a whole new meaning.

***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young adult readers.***

My Review:
One word: DEVIN! Need I say anymore that that!!??  Well, he is HOT, does that help??!!

Best Part of Book: Ok, I already said Devin but there really is so much more.  Lilly is a very rich lady and a overweight, however she is the sweetest most kind person ever.  The problem is: no boyfriend and feels that she will never find true love.  However, her mother has another idea.  She pays Devin a lot of money to date Lilly and then he is just suppose to leave.  Well, that is quite what happens.  Things become complicated and Lilly really gets Devin to show his true self.  Devin has a lot of issues and I really feel bad for the guy and Lilly was just the most perfect person for him.  However, Devin is just caring about the himself and his family and does not think of the long term of this arrangement. Tabatha does not just leave it at that.  She adds twists, turns and a HUGE surprise to make this story perfect.

Not so Great about the book: I wished the epilogue was a bit longer. But, I just wanted more and did not want it to end!  

About the Author:

Tabatha has been writing since she could pick up a pencil. Her first publication was a little poem in her elementary school paper, from that point on she was hooked. When she was a teenager, she traded in her girly magazines for personalized writing notebooks.

At nineteen, she met her own personal prince charming and writing took a back burner for a while. She is now married to that prince and the mother of a beautiful Six year old princess/rock star. Once her daughter was born, writing came back into her life, and she finished her very first novel in May of 2009.

She is pursuing a Bachelors in English and hopes to one day teach while continuing to write.

As a stay-at-home mom and full-time student, Tabatha enjoys the freedom of spending a good bit of her days doing what she loves the most…writing.
