Release Blitz! Chub Rub By Shannon Youngblood




Fat:
/fat/
Adjective
1. (of a person or animal) having a large amount of excess flesh.

Hi. My name is Maggie, and I’m a fat person. No, I’m not a self-loathing, angry woman who thinks all skinny girls are the devil spawn of satan, thank you very much. What I am, is a cubicle dwelling, shy girl with a healthy love for all things chocolate and deep fried. Yeah, I know I should put down the brownie and pick up a celery stalk but where is the fun in that? My best friend Polly assures me that the club we’re going to tonight is going to be loads of fun, but I’m not sure. Until I meet him.

Aq·ua·phob·ic
/aekwe fo bic/
Adjective
1. abnormally afraid of water

Yes, Yes. Laugh it up. A 30 year old sexually Dominant male, who owns his own club, is scared of water. If you’d been through what I had as a child you’d be fucking terrified of it too. I’ve always looked for Mrs. Right now, preferring to fling myself from a moving airplane into the Atlantic than to think about settling down. Until she comes walking into Newcomers night at my club.

Chem·is·try
/keməstrē/
Noun
1. the complex emotional or psychological interaction between two people.

This is Jackson’s world, not mine, but he’s slowly dragging me under, introducing me to things I don’t fully understand, but want to learn. There is something between us. We can’t fight it and we’re both sinking.

I have to admit I was intrigued by this book right from the blurb. It was my first Shannon Youngblood book and it definitely left me with some mixed feelings.

The characters are developed very well. We have Maggie Sweets, our heavy-set heroine and Jackson Hunter, the owner of the BDSM club called The Hunt. Both of them have been burned by relationships in the past and neither are expecting the immediate reaction they have to each other. That being said, this isn’t a tale of insta-love by any means. Instant attraction? Yes. Love? No.

The sex scenes in this book were hot and well written. I definitely wanted to be Maggie more than once! There are parts of this book that are definitely edgier and darker, but the balance really works here. I also enjoyed the author’s writing style. Things were paced well and believable.

I think my issue was two fold-I was tired of hearing about how heavy our heroine was (even as she was not self-conscious of that at all) and I didn’t love the ending. I respect that the author had different plans for these two characters, but I just wanted a little more out of them. I liked the characters of Polly and Chase and would be interested to see a book about them as well.
