The second book in New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Shirley Jump's irresistible Sweet and Savory Romances. Maria Pagliano is a woman on a diet mission. Desperate to drop a dress size before her reunion, she joins the Chubby Chums. But waiting next door is sexy, tempting chef and restaurateur Dante Del Rosso. Dante is all wrong for Maria. He tastes and smells like all the foods she has stricken from her diet. But Maria's love for her singing grandfather, cantankerous grandmother, and matchmaking mother all fill a long-empty spot in Dante's heart. He sets out to win her, using every weapon he has, including his tortellini. He's offering her the very thing she's got no willpower to resist - desire on a plate.
Special bonus material: Recipes written by the characters inside! The original version of this book was published in 2005, and titled as The Devil Served Tortellini.
This is just another story about a full figured woman (Maria) who hates her own body until a man (Dante) comes along & convinces her that she is actually attractive. Yuck!
Wake up ladies; if you aren't happy with your weight, do something about it. Happy, healthy women come in different shapes and sizes.
Insecure women with low self esteem are not that interesting or a good candidate for a successful relationship.
