"Over the Rainbow" by Donna Hill. Ray Morgan, owner of a Harlem soul-food restaurant, always provides extra portions to customer, model photographer Russell McDaniel because she would like to make it with him. Russell offers Jessica a plus size modeling job, which she accepts though that means he remains off limits to her as company policy disallows fraternization between workers..

"Tempting Fate" by Brenda Jackson. Full-figured lingerie model Justice Manning and top photojournalist Blake Savoy find they want one another as they work on a sexy shoot. However, Justice has doubts about any relationship after growing up in a household filled with battles and Blake doubts he wants to make any efforts anyway.

"When Wishes Come True" by Monica Jackson. For her thirtieth birthday, singer Topaz Sinclair wishes for true love. When her school boyfriend Ray Gaines returns into her life, she thinks it is kismet, but ignores his pal Jon Bynum, who has loved her forever.

"The Wright Woman" by Francis Ray. In Dallas, size 20 Stephanie Wright works as an assistant manager of a boutique when Michael Dunbar enters the store searching for his shopaholic mother. Michael is stunned to find he has an instant attraction to Stephanie, but believes women only want him for his wealth.

The entertaining tales star charming protagonists though none of the big babes seem to have the slightest esteem problem as they lift themselves and easily their chosen mates to A WHOLE LOTTA LOVE.

1. Over the Rainbow - Donna Hill

Jessica Morgan size 18 is the owner of a restaurant. She likes Russell McDaniels, but is not sure if he likes her. Turns out he was not sure how she felt about him, so Russell kept his desires to himself. Russell is a freelance photographer. Auntie Mama raised Jessica and her two sisters. Bernadette, and Marcelle. All they want is for their sister to be happy. New Magazine to come out called Living large. Eleanor wants Russell to find the new face of Living Large magazine. He has two weeks to do it. Russell thinks Jessica is that model. Jessica has to make a decision that will change her life forever. Jessical leaves her restaurant to become a model.

Eleanor tells Jessica that Russell's words are nothing more than just words. Jessica takes it to mean that Eleanor is in love with Russell. Jessica is cold to Russell and it's really, really hard to do because she does love Russell. Eleanor let's Jessica know she wants Russell and Jessica is taken aback. I thought the ending was very nice, and I loved how Russell and Jessica defy Eleanor.

2. Tempting Fate - Brenda Jackson

If I could give this story a 10 I would!!!! Blake Savoy is on a much needed vacation in Alexandria, VA. Tonya his favorite cousin needs a big favor. Tanya started a lingerie company called Tonya's temptations for full figured women. She needs Blake to take pictures of a model. She needs to have him take pictures of model Justice Manning.

I am a former BBW(big beautiful woman), no longer big but still beautiful, so it was refreshing to read about black love involving a plus sized woman.
I am a true fan of romance. I am well acquainted with the works by Brenda Jackson and Francis Ray. I thoroughly enjoyed Brenda Jackson's and Francis Ray's story. I expected nothing less than fabulous and they delievered. Donna Hill's story had a good plot but it took her too long to get to the good stuff. But when she finally did, it made for an interesting read. Monica Jackson has a really good storyline as well but it ended too soon. All in all, I commend the work of these fine African American female romance authors. This book introduced me to Donna Hill and Monica Jackson. I will explore other works by them in the future.

I loved this book. As soon as I spotted this book I knew I'd like it, just by the title alone. It was well written (especially the steamy scenes). I just kept picturing myself in all the stories. It made me smile. I'll be sure to look for more books by these authors. Awesome read!

I think this is great. I loved all the stories in this book. The one thing that bothered me just a little bit was the fact that the plus size women wore sizes like 20, and 18. Why not a size 24, 26, or 28. Well that's just me. But you should buy this book it's really good.

Over the Rainbow (Donna Hill)

Is it wise to mix business with pleasure? Jessica Morgan is the owner of Harlem soul food restaurant Lip Smacking Good. At size 18 Jessica is "a woman with some meat on her bones, a real woman." She is at first hesitant when approached by the handsome and regular customer Russell McDaniel. As a photographer Russell asks Jessica to pose for a plus size fashion magazine. He feels that her body "epitomizes the whole living large concept." Before long she is swept into the fast paced world of fashion and modeling. Has what she's been looking for been in front of her the whole time instead of somewhere over the rainbow?

When Wishes Come True (Monica Jackson)

Since her youth, Topaz Sinclair has spent every birthday with a close circle of friends. Her thirtieth is no exception as Topaz with her "rounded, plump curves carried with a womanly confidence" blows out her candles. It's tradition that the birthday girl each year makes a spoken wish. In the past, all heartfelt, sincere personal wishes always came true. So it was no surprise to Topaz that immediately after her wish for true love left her lips, in walked her former high school sweetheart. But as they resume their relationship, something just isn't right. Is this one wish that will not come true?

The Wright Woman (Francis Ray)

Stephanie Wright, a perfect size 20, can't believe her luck when the ruggedly handsome Michael Dunbar walked through the doors of the upscale boutique in which she works. The two hit it off. Burned by his past, Michael is a little cautious about proceeding with a relationship. Not only that, but he's keeping a secret from Stephanie. Can the duo work past this?
