A Whole Lot of LoveEd believing in fairy talesand Prince CharmingOne look at Layla Laraway and CEO Ethan Winslow knew he'd found a princess Layla was woman than any he'd ever met and he desired her far t I found this book via a blog I think Smart Bitches Trashy Books but I'm not sure several years ago and it's been sitting on my shelf waiting for me to get around to it for a while I finally did First off the title is terrible Absolutely terrible There is no excuse The book itself however is pretty good I only wish it were longer I'm sick of seeing the typical naturally thin perfectly proportioned romance heroine I loved seeing someone like myself in a romance novel also the cover art is off because if that's supposed to be Layla then I don't see what the big pun intended deal is with her weight I also loved the background story of Alzheimer's I liked that they had something in common that drove them and brought them together though I wished Layla's back story would have been a bit in depth I found Layla's insecurities a bit annoying but then I thought about it and I suppose I'd think the same thing if in that position I'd probably even think it was a prank of some sort So I really can't blame the character for her thoughts on the matter Honestly this book was really a waste for a serial It definitely should have been a longer standalone book on it's own Several people probably wouldn't even give it the time of day simply because it's a serial I would love to see books like this and no the heroine having small breasts or a boyish figure does not constitute an imperfection
