Anyway. The story would have been more balanced if we had been given Daniel's point of view. Although written in third-person POV, we only get to see Melissa's thoughts and feelings, and they are so negative that the story was tough to wade through. Daniel's POV would have helped us to see Melissa in a different light -- through his eyes -- and his feelings for her would have balanced out all the negativity coming from her. He was very sweet to her, but every time he complimented her she refused to believe that he meant what he said. It got old fast. She doesn't even believe him when he says he has loved her forever, even though she admits he could have anyone he wants but he's still single after all these years. In the end, I couldn't understand why he loved her. I liked Daniel a lot, but I just wanted to grab Melissa and shake her hard. As a romance, it didn't quite work for me.
As with all BBW romance's, there is a message about being okay with your body image and that curves aren't necessarily bad (which is good or I would be in trouble). When written right, this idea produces a positive influence. I personally think the line between including this message and talking about it too much is very narrow. (Much in the same way it is with Christian novels) For me personally, this book was just a bit heavy on Melissa dwelling on her poor body image and Daniel telling her otherwise. I really liked the story. I would have enjoyed it more with the BBW toned down. This is my preference. If that doesn't bother you, you will like this novella.
