Publisher's Summary

Symone Davenport is a 22-year-old college senior who has set herself up for a very secure future, but all her achievements feel more like a duty than a labor of love. Her true love is singing R&B. She doesn't believe her plus-size figure could ever be diva material, so she settles for fading into the background in her father's church choir. It takes the help of Jaylen Richards, the handsome new choir director, to not only unlock her talent and try to bring her into the spotlight but to unlock her heart.

Janice was never very thin, but the 50 pounds she packed on after her sister's sudden death two years ago sent her way beyond the size 14 she used to be. With a gorgeous face, personality, and brains, she isn't lacking friends, but her insecurities about her weight gain get in the way of things reaching the next level with men. 

Flirting over the phone and via e-mail with Tony is easy, since he's hundreds of miles away, but when business brings him to Janice's Chicago office, she goes out of her way to avoid meeting him face-to-face. She assumes he'll take one look at her and not even remember their conversations. She couldn't be further from the truth, and soon their romance blossoms. In his arms nothing, especially size, matters; however, when lies are uncovered and things come undone, layers of Tony are exposed. Will it reveal a golden pear or a rotten apple? Did he play on her insecurities for his own selfish gain, and is he just more dead weight she will eventually have to lose?

Two short stories that were not very fulling. There was not much depth in the storylines.

2 Stories 1 Book

The problem with serial books is; not every book is published in audio or they become out of print and the listeners miss out on so much... this is what I reckoned happened in this book. There are 2 very well written stories in this book, but one thing I didn't like; they both sounded like pilots, making me think something futuristic is coming. Overall the story lines are believable, about over coming the fat girl sydrome or the fat girl mindset and the men who support them. I'm so nosy, I want the 411 on each character. Each story made me want to know more information, that is why I gave a low score.

The 1st story was more revealing than the second, though it mentioned the sufferings of the full figured woman, it carried no weight or depth in the subject. I wanted more details about the successes of the recording business. I wished that the subject of prejudices against full figured women in the entertainment field were explored in more detail and up in the listener's face? Did the family reconcile? I wished the story dealt more into the struggles and the mindset of morbid obesity.

The 2nd story was a good one too, but it still left me with questions. I would still listen to the upcoming serials by this author, because seldom do I read about full-figured women being accepted in the entertainment world.

The narrators were excellent, they brought life in each character. 😉
