Or will Sabrina's insecurities make her flee?
Curvy's Cad: A Curvy Girl's Mistake?
Eliza Lyons isn't interested in Craig Grant's attentions beyond the platonic. He's a playboy and boy does she know better. They lunch, they gossip, he tells her things about her current dates she doesn't want to hear and she thinks he'll never outgrow his playboy ways. Then Craig lays down the gauntlet and informs her he intends to show her what a real seduction is.
Flushed, aroused, and shocked to her toes, Eliza stared.

“Really?” she asked as coolly as she could manage. It didn’t sound breathy — that had to count for something.

“I’ve admired your curves for a long time, Eliza,” Craig said, still serious, still watching her with that look that did nothing to ease the flush of arousal pounding through her. “I’ve admired so much about you.”

Eliza swallowed. Was it her imagination or did his voice fall an octave? Deep and dark and dripping in sex.

“And you can’t say we don’t have chemistry,” Craig continued. Closer.

When had he moved closer? She’d been paying attention; Eliza knew she had. Her entire and sole attention focused on him. Stunned she wondered what new game he was up to. But her thoughts fell over each other and she struggled to find coherency in this conversation.

“Volatile chemistry,” Eliza agreed. Was that her voice? That half-breathy half-laugh that did absolutely nothing to solidify her position as not interested?

“That’s the best kind,” he said with a smile that made her insides jump. “Come on, Eliza. Give this a try.”

Joking. He had to be joking. Craig could be a prankster, she knew this. She had even occasionally helped him plan a couple jokes on mutual friends. So this had to be it. A prank, a joke. Admittedly a poor one, or a poor attempt at one.

Eliza smiled. Yes, that was it. And she refused to fall for that. Smiling up at him, as come-hither and sultry as she could make her smile, she stepped closer, adding a little sway to her hips, one hand on her ample curves.

“You know, Craig,” she said softly, seductively, “if I didn’t know better, if,” she reiterated, “I would.”

She watched his already dark eyes darken further, that heat and hunger and need reaching for her. The finger that had, seemingly of its own will, trailed up his button-down now poked him hard in the chest.

That look in his eyes didn’t fade as she expected.
Curvy's Cad:  A Curvy Girl's Mistake?
This was just a fun (hot) story about good friends who realize they might be WAY more than good friends!

The whole tone of the book was light with sprinkles of "funny" throughout. I especially enjoyed the humor of Eliza's interior monologues and streams of thought as she tried to figure out Craig.

Speaking of Craig, he was absolutely adorable. And relentless. He was the perfect foil to highlight just how ridiculous Eliza was being at times, specifically in matters of the heart.

While the story did have conflict, it was low-stress, which I really enjoyed. It matched well with the book's lightheartedness, and all I'll say is the boat scene was the perfect type of conflict for this story!

Kristabel mentioned characters from other books in the series throughout this one, which made me want to read their stories too. All in all, I think Kristabel did a fantastic job with Curvy's Cad!
