Book Review: His Every Whim (BBW Billionaire Erotic Romance Novella) by Liliana Rhodes

Ashley is down on her luck and needs a job and money.  Her roommate sets her up with a job helping at a catering gig and warns her of the mysterious man who has scared off many people.  Ashley decides to take her chances and approaches him with some champagne but quickly runs off when the catering manager shows up.  The mystery man follows her and they have a steamy encounter in the backroom which has them both wanting more but still not knowing who the other is.  He leaves Ashley to recover while he runs to interference to prevent others from bothering her.   his every whim

Trying to clear her thoughts, Ashley looks at the job board at her job and sees that there is an advertisement for a house manager.  While she does not know exactly what the job entails, she is up for it as she needs a different place to live.  She calls and goes for an interview and is given the job if she wants it.  The master of the house comes up just as she is getting ready to leave and collect her belongings.  It turns out that he is the mystery man.

While Zander had wanted to find the girl, this is not how he expected to find her but he is happy and wants to see what will happen.  He advises Ashley that he expects her to also perform some administrative duties for him.  She agrees to this and wonders exactly what he means and if she is up to the challenge.

My opinion:

I enjoyed this book.  Zander is your typical billionaire, at least how they are portrayed in fiction, as he is in control and command, and knows what he wants.  Maybe someday I will meet a true billionaire to find out if this is the true way of their actions!

This book is also very size positive as you can imagine just from the genre it is.  Ashley is a size 16 and while she has body issues, Zander loves her body and her curves.  He hires a personal shopper to help Ashley with her wardrobe, and when the shopper complains about Ashley’s size, he immediately sets to work making sure that the woman will not work again.

Rant: Women’s Body Sizes

It seems to me that whenever I read an erotica story where the female is not a size 6, she is referred to as big or needing to lose weight.  I just finished a story tonight where the main character was a size 14 and her co-workers had told her that she should go to the gym and that is why she didn’t have a man in her life.   But when she mentions it to the man, he says how he loves her curves and that she has a brain.  And of course, being a bigger size means that she has big boobs and a big ass which is not always the case either.

But in reality, is a size 14 that big?  In checking it on the Internet, Marilyn Monroe was likely a size 8 or 10 in today’s clothing sizes (see link at end of rant from Snopes).  But she was considered a huge sex symbol.  Is a 14 all that much bigger than what she was?  And of course, in her movies, she was dressed to accent her curves and show herself off.

For the most part, the woman’s size really should not be a factor in these books.   Shouldn’t the focus be more on her curves and how they drive their potential partner wild?  How about the tricks that she has up her sleeves and how she can turn her partner into someone who cannot even remember their name or how to breathe?  To me, that is more important than what a characters dress or jeans size.

Heck, I have even found a series of erotica books on Amazon that are a BBW series but the characters size is a 14 or 16.  To me, that isn’t BBW, that is the average North American Woman.
