(From Goodreads)
Big Girls Do It Better 
     Gorgeous, rock-star guys like Chase Delany don't go for girls like me. They go for supermodels and actresses, skinny-girls who never eat and spend all day working out. I'm not that girl. So when he locked his fiery brown eyes on me for the first time, I couldn't quite believe it was really happening to me. 
     It was the second night I spent with him that I'll never forget. 

The Long Drive Home (bonus short story)

Big Girls Do It Wetter 
     Chase went to New York...without me. It was only one night, one delicious, sinful night, but it awakened something within me, and now, with him gone, I have no one to satiate my sudden, ferocious hunger. Then I woke up one day and looked at someone near and dear to me in a whole new light. And my world was rocked once again.

Big Girls Do It Wilder 
     I'm going. Going to New York City to be with gorgeous, mysterious, rockstar Chase Delany seemed like a crazy dream, a fantasy come true. The bright lights and music, and his tight, sexy leather pants called to me...and I answered. Chase might want more and I just might give it to him, if I could only forget what I started with Jeff back in Detroit.
     I thought I had my love life all figured out, I thought I knew what I wanted, and then things went and changed on me all over again...

Big Girls Do It On Top 
     I fled New York with my heart breaking and a million questions. Foremost in my mind was whether Jeff would even see me after the colossal mess that New York turned out to be. 
     I discovered the answer, but that only spawned even more questions, many of the yes or no variety..

     I chose to read this series because I've always heard great things about the author and big girls are usually a selling point for me.
     I enjoyed the story for the most part. The idea was there for a great love triangle with a "regular" plus sized woman, but it didn't quite fulfill my expectations. There were a lot of grammatical errors. Sorry, I'm critical on that in a book that I've paid for. Pet peeve of mine. I felt like the book was more sex than anything else at all. Don't get me wrong, I love erotica, but there has to be more actual story line and romance for me. Overall though, it was a good enough read for a rainy (or snowy here) day. Thanks to the author for writing one for us "big girls" out there!
