Book Review - Bridge Over the Atlantic by Lisa Hobman

Book Review – Bridge Over the Atlantic by Lisa J Hobman
Product Details
**Note:  I received a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review**
This is the first time I have ever read a book without knowing what it was about – never read the synopsis until I was about 75% through.  I just dove right in, at the end of Chapter One, I was already in love…..with Sam and Mallory.  I found myself smiling through their conversations and their date and first sexual encounter.  I LOVED that I was finally reading a book around real everyday people.  Mallory is a curvy girl and from the sounds of it, Sam is not a GQ model either.  Curvy girls unite!!!!  (Curvy can be sexy – just means our men need to be strong enough not to drop us, should they decide to take us up against a wall J )
Then the book took a turn… unexpected twist leading in a totally different direction, causing your mind and your emotions to totally flip-flop around.   There I was, bawling like baby.....THAT was unexpected.  I was crying because of what happened, but even more so over imagining, no, KNOWING what Mallory was feeling….almost like I stepped in and became her…..I was crying when she couldn’t.  OMG – what will she do???  OK – I cried all the way through a complete chapter….it was a hard, ugly cry.  My eyes were swollen and my nose stuffy and I went through at least ½ box of Kleenex….it really was quite pitiful.  Thank goodness for e-readers and being about to adjust the font.....I had to adjust to large print so I could see through the tears.   Now, don’t let tears keep you from reading this book!!!!  Soldier on, you will be so glad you did.
The  story continues….paths are crossed, journeys of personal growth and healing are made, hearts are broken, fate is tested…..and through it all, I fell in love all over again.
Mallory Westerman is a full-figured, successful, young business woman living in Yorkshire, England. Though very career minded, she is extremely self-conscious about her ample curves and so her love life tends to pay the price.

Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally trips into the arms of a stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour.

The immediate sexual and romantic spark that blossoms into love and the events that follow, irrevocably change Mallory’s life-path and self-image forever, but only go to prove that the road to true love is never smooth and that things don’t always turn out how you expect…

Great debut, Lisa Hobman!  I look forward to future publications.
