Kat Wilson is a woman content. Comfortable in her curvy body, a runner and a successful business owner, she doesn't need a man. Having one in her life, however, isn't such a bad idea. Nope, not a bad idea at all…especially after being saved from a drenching during a race by Eric Thompson.

Most men like their women model-thin. Not Eric. He likes a woman who is soft and curvaceous. He likes them exactly like Kat Wilson. Too bad she seems to want nothing to do with him. Imagine his surprise when he finds the ad she took out for him in a Missed Connections section of a website…or so he thinks…

Can the matchmaking skills of Kat's best friend convince her Eric's not just another toad, but the Prince Charming she never thought she needed?

A chance encounter at a local race between Kat Wilson, a curvy runner and successful businesswoman, and Eric Thompson, fellow runner and a business owner, leads to something more in this wonderful story. Kat is content with her life and with her body and believes she doesn’t need a man. Having been unlucky in love she is reluctant to try again, but is taken with the handsome man she meets at the race. However, they part ways without exchanging information. Kat’s meddlesome friend places an ad on an Internet site for “Missed Connections” hoping to bring the pair together.

Eric is just as taken with Kat and is surprised to learn of her ad online. They reconnect and soon a relationship is blossoming. But Kat’s self-doubt and fear of being hurt again could ruin things before they have a chance to fully start.

This was a great story featuring relatable characters and a fun romance. One could easily relate to Kat with her insecurities and self-doubt. She finds it hard to believe that Eric accepts and likes her the way she is, while Eric struggles to understand her thinking. I really enjoyed the chemistry and passion between these two and loved their story.
