What a beautiful love story! Funny, kind, laugh out loud crazy zany, and sexy. Not the trend of crazed billionaire whipping creepy men with virgins but peopled with characters who seem to have real heart that we could actually know in real life. Colin is crazy sexy and he makes me swoon with how he loves Cherri. She is a hot mess but she's twenty and had some real life events happening and she soon wished up because she really is such a great girl who deserves the crazy sexy dude. I loved it and will re read this when I'm down in the dumps. Makes you believe in love ...left me with such a great feeling when I finished the story and just a little sad it was over

This is the second book by Sugar Jamison that I have read and enjoyed. The first one was Have Yourself a Curvy Little Christmas, a holiday novella in the Perfect Fit Series. Both books featured terrific characters, a heart warming story line, and delivered that happily ever after sigh at the end.

In Thrown for a Curve we have Charlotte Rudy aka Cherri, a twenty-two year old, six-foot-tall curvy Ukrainian blond. She is a lovely character and someone that I would want as a friend. She is funny, loyal, caring, and down to earth. She has insecurities about her size and is completely clueless when it comes to men.

Enter Colin O’Connell, thirty-four year old, six-foot-three Irish hottie. He has had a bit of a rough past with more than his share of bad experiences with women. He has grown tired of the endless one-night hook ups but is having a hard time fighting his attraction to Cherri. He knows that he isn’t what she needs but still finds himself fiercely protective of his new friend and work partner.

In addition to the fabulous characters we get a story line that takes you on a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride. Cherri’s grandmother had me laughing out loud at her antics and shedding a few tears later in the story. Colin and Cherri made me want to smack them in the head with their lack of communication skills and at the same time wanting to reassure them of how great they are.

So, to wrap everything up, Thrown for a Curve, is a book filled with love and heartache with tons of character growth. It is a fast read and in my opinion a great way to spend the afternoon. My favorite aspect of the book is the characters. I just loved them. This is book 2 of the Perfect Fit Series but it works perfect as a stand-alone. I have added book 1, Dangerous Curves Ahead to my wish list and look forward to reading it soon.

This was a real good read. Sugar has a good, down home plot. It was so easy to fall into this book. Safe spoiler here-keep tissues on hand. Colin is Irish. He moved to the U.S. to start over with a business of his own making renovations to antiques.Cherri was raised by grandparents. Baba misses her late husband and soon she needs Cherri almost full time. She and Colin soon are an item. The usual problems then crop up-Dad and ex for Colin, Cherri wanting to finally use her art skills and Baba losing her memories. I always seem to pick out the books that grab me and I cry through. I can't wait to find more books from Sugar. Give this story a chance. You won't regret it.

It took me a bit longer than usual to complete this book, because I kept going back over so many parts - not because they didn't make sense, but because they were hilarious!

From the very beginning, with conversations about too much hair spray and homemade party dresses, Sugar Jamison spins a delightful tale that feels REAL. We all enjoy a little angst here and there, but for me, it must make sense and flow within the story. There was no shark jumping or forced HEAs found here - these people could be anyone we know.

At 22 years of age, Charlotte "Cherri" Rudy is still waiting for her life to 'begin'. She works in a boutique to support herself, Baba - her elderly VERY Ukrainian grandmother, and Rufus - Baba's dog. Her passion is to paint, and she even has a college degree - but there aren't many opportunities for artists in her small town, and when a job does become available, she realizes combined with commuting time, she'd be away from her Baba too long during the day. But the bills are piling up and the house is falling apart, so Cherri soldiers on, trying to think up solutions.

That is, when she isn't thinking about Colin O'Connell - the 6'3" friend of a friend who Cherri believes will always see her as a 'friend'. Cherri doesn't believe that Colin...or any man...could ever be attracted to her 6' tall plus size body. But surprise, surprise, Colin is attracted to her! However, he's at least a dozen years older than her, and has a rep as a womanizer, so he denies his feelings for Cherri and hides them. She has had a thing for him since they first met, but she's seen the thin, petite, "sophisticated" women Colin has dated, and figures she doesn't have a chance.
