Lisa Kirkpatrick is stubborn, but she’s not stupid. If this guy needs a date to evade an unwanted admirer, who is she to object? It’s not as if handsome men are lining up to ask her out. Sure, they know there’s a woman in the wheelchair, but it would never occur to them that there’s a WOMAN in the wheelchair. He notices. This solid, fun, straight-shooting guy ticks off every box on her ideal man list. But why do they call him Slick?

Roger Plankey thought his life was full until he walked into the town clerk’s office and laid eyes on the woman behind the counter. A spunky, independent woman with a dash of humor and just enough sass to keep him on his toes. She fills that unknown void in his life like she was made for him. But is there such a thing as too perfect?

This is a must read. I’ve never read anything like this before. Truly original, heartwarming and entertaining. The name of the story is, A Full-Bodied Love and I’d like to Copy/Paste the Author’s note: “Full-bodied means to be heady, mellow, lusty, mature, potent, rich, and strong. I hope this love story represents those elements.” – Amber Cross.” It is my opinion that this story represented all those characteristics and more. This is my first Amber Cross book, and it won’t be my last. It’s been days since I finished this book and I’m still thinking about it.

The romance between Lisa Kirkpatrick and Roger Plankey is inspiring. I’ve never read a love story involving a heroine in a wheelchair before, but I can say that their love story was brilliantly written. They met on page one in a chance encounter that was humorous until it wasn’t. I was immediately drawn into the story and couldn’t put the book down until I reached the last page.

The cast of characters were well developed and relatable. I appreciated Lisa’s clothing style and accessories which clearly matched her spunky self. I felt welcomed into Roger’s family since they were genuinely down to earth, caring and helpful to others. Lisa’s sister, Hazel, was less desirable but with good intentions. Hazel’s heart was in the right place which is revealed in the ‘happily ever after’.

There is a plot twist near the end that did throw me for a loop. I didn’t see it coming yet I feel it was delicately played out. I was left with hope that with love all things can work out. I don’t want to give a spoiler so I can’t elaborate on that plot twist any further than that.

There is much more to this story and that is why I suggest it as a ‘must read’. The romance between Lisa and Roger is sigh worthy. I put Roger on my ‘book boyfriend list’. I would definitely read this story again and again and again. Happy Reading!
