While she is proud of her own personal achievements she uses binge eating and self deprecating humour to mask her personal insecurities and self doubts in many if not all situations And honestly? If that ain't the most relatable toxic trait as a plus size Pacific Island woman then I don't know what isReading Scarlet's familial interactions felt too real From her 'neutral' stance with her nieces and nephews it isn't the truth if you don't have ONE favourite child and promises of sweets; to her robotic and inconspicuous eye rolling yes aunty responses whenever she was in the presence of the aunties in the kitchen helping prepare the food funeral birthday and family reunion flashbacks are REAL fam; and to the personal opinions about religious philosophies on the world we live in today that we can't actually express to our Pacific Island relatives who are deeply rooted in the church I felt like I was reading flashbacks of my own lifeAnd of course I have to talk about Jackson LORD JESUS WHEW I OK I was really enamoured by Lani Wendt Young's story telling of Daniel Tahi in Telesa The Covenant Keeper but her description and creation of Jackson Emery is just ugh chef's kiss Like I truly want to know who she envisioned when describing him with his caramel eyes long hair and olive skin cus I'm thinking of Boo Boo Stewart meets Rudy Youngblood meets Chaske Spencer And like he's so nice? A cheeky bugger with a strong flirt streak but he's so nice to Scarlet and really likes her beyond her looks and finds her funny and endearing and justjust call me a #JacksonAppreciation stan and let me live my lifeOK I'm ramblingOverall I really love this book and I'm way too freaking excited to read the second and third installments because I just cannot sit here and be happy with the way it ended in the first installment Excuse me? You give me all of that build up ALL OF THEM and I have to wait anxiously to see how their romance progresses? How Jackson plans on making Scarlet drunk on him SHE ALREADY IS BTW? How Scarlet deals with being back home and dealing with all of THAT mess? How the wedding goes?TL;DR this book is one of my all time faves and I might actually just purchase the set once I've read the final two books Funny and laugh out loud readingReading this was like reading my own journal There were some funny laugh out loud moments that made me look around the room to make sure I was on my own Scar's character is funny but frustrating at times I learnt a lot about desserts in this book There were some grammatical errors that editing hadn't picked up but overall it was a fun read Yassss Omg I love Scarlet and her personality Oh and Jackson I totally ship him and Scarlet I love love love this book Just like the first one 💯 OMG I freakin' love Scar She is freakin' hilarious uirky and cracks me the hell up She is really hard on herself and at times I wanted to shake her but at the same time be strong for her and kick ass and take names on her behalf BUTbased on the interactions with her family and an obviously hurtful past it's clear why she is always down on herself I love how she is an undercover blogger because it gives us insight on her true selffeelings that she keeps hidden from the rest of the world It's where she can vent and speak freely There is tons of family drama that you don't want to miss out on Enter Jacksonsighing dreamilyhe is exactly what Scar needs even though her emotions are at war with herself because she can't believe this FINE HOT as hell man is attracted to herScar is a BBW Big Beautiful Woman but she pretty much keeps denying their attraction to each other because of their physical appearances She also doesn't really give him a chance and keeps telling him they don't fitmatch and so on So what does Jackson do? He responds by showing her Because action after all speaks louder than words Ohhhweee his lips show hermmhmm that lucky bitch LOL Every time they run into each other they continue to flirt and their attraction to each other continues to build into this smoldering heat That slow burn gets hotter and hotter where it starts to smoke and oh good lawd help us all when those two combust into an open flame and are on FIYYYAAAAHHHHHIt was a very entertaining read and I want NOW I mean who wouldn't especially with a cliffy like thisWe're not done Scarlet Trust me when we finally make love the only thing you will be drunk on is meAwwww suki suki now HOT DAMN It's a fast hot funny read Definitely a page turner and it never gets boring There are times that I get get hungry because of all the delicious treats she goes on about lol But it meshes well because she works at a bakery her description fits exactly what she is envisioning loves to eat and owns it I love thatI can't wait for part 2 so please hurry eeeeek Freakin' Awesome job Lani TWO THUMBS UP A CHAAA HOOOO
