The rules of (fake) engagement . . .
Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she's sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren't enough éclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper - or the fact that he just told her mother that they're engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.
Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah's date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay "just friends," and make Leah's family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah's decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren't going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he's for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

The fake-engagement story is always unbelievable, but if well done, thoroughly enjoyable. Luckily, Size Matters did it well. Plus sized Leah has some issues because, well, size matters. Her mother is crazy judgmental. Her boyfriend broke up with her and is now marrying a young stick insect - and Leah gets to make the wedding cake.
Seeing Leah going through hell at the wedding between Mom, the ex, and the stick insect, Sam sticks his foot in it and introduces himself as Leah's fiance. Hilarity ensues and plans backfire. And, of course, Leah and Sam fall in love, but have really made a mess.
Size Matters is a fun, quirky romance. You should definitely add it to your TBR!
