Overview

Mean Girls by Lucy Felthouse

Adele Blackthorne is a big girl, a curvy chick. She knows it, and she’s been picked on all her life because of it. But she’s gotten to the stage where she doesn’t care. She may be Rubenesque, but she’s healthy, too. Much healthier than the mean girls at the leisure center that point and stare and say spiteful things about her. Adele rises above it all, and simply enjoys her secretive glances at the center’s hunky lifeguard, Oliver.

As the bullying of Adele becomes worse, Oliver finds it increasingly difficult not to intervene. He doesn’t want to get into trouble with work, but equally he can’t stand to see Adele treated in such a horrible way. Especially since he doesn’t agree that she’s fat and unattractive. He thinks she’s a seriously sexy woman, and would like to get to know her better. Much better.

Super Sweet and Sexy! Adele is so adorable and so is the main love interest Oliver! Adele Blackthorne is curvy and she knows it and she owns it! She made herself sick when she tried to live up to others ideas of what is the right ideal type for her body, so she made a pack with herself to be healthy not skinny. So what if she isn’t a size 2. She is a chef, owns her own business, and not only eats healthy but also swims at the local leisure center. This is where she gets eyefuls of the hunky lifeguard who stars in her fantasies on a regular basis. Oliver hears the hateful things the mean girls say about Adele, and he hates it. Turns out he has been lusting after Adele just as much if not more. He wants to do something about the verbal bullying, but doesn’t want to get fired. He totally blows his shot at telling Adele how he feels, but luckily a cheerful bartender helps him fix his blunder. The two give love a second chance and find out that they have a lot more in common than they might have thought. They are so sweet and adorable together, I just want to give them both a big hug! I totally agree with Adele that there is a big difference between being naked in front of someone and stripping in front of them. Being naked is just naked, but if you strip for someone, it is a long focus on your body and way more unnerving. Don’t worry about the b*@#%es, cause they don’t go un-scolded. This audiobook is narrated by Xanthia Bloom. She does a good job with all the various characters, as well as with the story telling. Overall I give this 5 of 5 stars!

I loved it!! So many parts of this book rang true - the nasty, spiteful things that 'perfect' witches say about girls/ladies that have some meat on their bones - I know because I have heard them all my teenage and adult life. This book shows what my hubby always tells me - big is beautiful. Thank you Lucy for writing about a real person I could wholeheartedly relate to. A quick read - about an hour - read it in one sitting. Copy kindly gifted by the author for an honest review.

Reviewed by Shyla Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Ms. Felthouse shows us love comes in all shapes in sizes in this romantic tale with a twist. Adele is a plus size woman comfortable with her looks and resistant to the foolish comments made by others. At her local leisure center, the English version of a Y.M.C.A., she swims at least three times a week under the watchful eyes of Oliver. The young lifeguard is always quick with a greeting and a smile that reminds her how long it’s been since she’s had sex. With her crush safely buried she’s shocked into silence when Oliver expresses his interest, sending the wrong message. Successful, kind-hearted, and driven she’s easy to like. But I felt too much emphasis was placed on her size. She had so many other interesting things going I would have liked to learn more about like her job as a head Chef. It took me away from the story at times. There’s nothing sexier than confidence, and as far as Oliver is concerned, Adele has that in spades. A gentleman with a swimmer’s body , and the maturity to see past age and society’s norm on beauty… what was not to like about this hero? His willingness to stand up when he saw something wrong totally won me over. He had a confident, yet awkward vibe that reminded me of Hugh Grant. That very human element i could relate that might have been lost otherwise. If you’re looking for a romance that steps a bit out of the box, and the country, because this is set in England, this is the perfect one for you.

Mean Girls by Lucy Felthouse Finally an author who tells it like it is. There are women out there everyday putting down others because of their size. Lucy tells us Adele’s story and how she copes with these skinny hags. Adele is a brave woman who knows that she will never skinny. She has struggled with her weight since she was young. She has finally decided that she can be happy with her life if she just maintains her exercise. Not everyone has to be skinny to be healthy. Adele has a crush on the life guard (Oliver) where she swims. What she doesn’t know is that he is also crushing on her. Oliver knows that Adele is a large and healthy woman. He doesn’t see size like most people do. He just cares that she is healthy and polite person. This really is a heart felt love story. Thank you Lucy for putting out such a wonderful story with two beautiful main characters. “I received this book as a review copy in return for an honest review”

Though much of Mean Girls plays like an after school special, the overall message that it portrays is one that pulled me in completely and had me rooting for Adele every step of the way. Her whole life she's been curvy and has gotten used to the name calling as she has strong self-esteem. The only time she feels uncertain is when it comes to the super sexy life guard Oliver. She has the hots for him but doesn't think she can get a man like him. Little does she know that he feels the same way about her. It'll take an unexpected ally to bring them together and put the mean girls in their place. Oliver is extremely handsome so women have always come to him. He's not used to going after what he wants, and what he wants is Adele. He loves everything about her, especially her curves, but doesn't know how to get her attention. Luckily a new friend helps him get Adele's attention and from there he proves himself to be a knight in shining armor in defending her against the mean girls. Oliver and Adele are delightful together. Their early exchanges are quite sweet and reserved. They both start off shy but their time together quickly becomes combustible which leads to some scorching sexual encounters. Oliver is quite the romantic and says what every girl hopes to hear. Adele becomes very assertive and I applauded her finally asking for what she wanted. What brings this story down is the juvenile antics of a trio of skinny girls. At every turn they talked poorly about Adele. They relentlessly flirted with Oliver even when it was obvious how much he disliked them. Even though these women were purported to be in their 30's they acted like children in their over-the-top scenes and the issues Adele experienced could've been conveyed in a more mature way which would've left a more powerful impact. The flow of the story is pleasant showing a relationship evolve, albeit quickly, from friends to lovers. The sexual encounters are scorching and Ms. Felthouse leaves readers with a warm feeling seeing two likable characters find their HEA in a story that is satisfying and the perfect afternoon delight.
