Try Me On for Size
Try Me On For Size

Stephanie Haefner

This story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.

I was in the mood for a light humorous read and so I thought I would give it a go. I needed something to distract me and make me laugh. I made a good choice. This story is full of fresh story lines and get me captivated from the first page. The characters were likable and well thought out.

Classy ‘n’ Sassy Lingerie is the name of her business and it is experiencing a distinct slump in sales. A very bad, we might be loosing our shirts slump. There is a need to do something drastic to bring in customers. They decide to launch a new line of special order female toys, but they need a male model to base it on. Here comes the humorous part, Mia Montanari is going to personally audition the men to see if they meet the appropriate criteria. This includes size and shape. Eeks, this promises to be entertaining. After a mix-up at the bar while waiting for subject number 1, she inadvertently goes home with a stranger and has the best sex ever.  The only problem with secrets is that they tend to come out and soon Mia finds out that her candidate number one is really an imposter. It, however is too late and he becomes one of her male models.

The secrets that Oliver has been hiding from Mia are unfortunately not quite all revealed yet and they tend to include a fiancé. Oh oh, this does not look good, especially because Mia is having amorous feelings towards him. There is also the matter of Mia’s family, she has a father that is harassing her to work for him and a pregnant sister that is trying to guilt her into the same end result.

Mia just wants to live her life the way that she wants. She is pouring herself heart and soul into this new product line and opening her heart up to Oliver. This has the potential to be a very tricky situation as the supposed fiancée is not happy about Oliver’s new job.

The author does a great job with this story line. The amount of secondary characters is large but I never lost my place, it was easy to keep up with who was who and they all had integral parts in the story. Her family was horrible, I loved them, the fiancée with her pretend pregnancy was evil, I loved her too, the business partner Brynn added a dose of friendship to the story and the other chosen model Ryan was just likeable from the get go.

This was not just a simple story of trying to save a business with an insanely funny promotional idea, it had a lot of depth and an amazing amount of twists and turns. When I thought the story was heading in one direction the author surprised me and turned the story another way.

I would rate this story a 5/5 and would definitely be interested in reading more by this author.
