Rock & Roses: A Plus Size BBW Romance
Romance, Contemporary, New Adult
When a tired rock star meets a larger than life gardener, there's more going on than strolls among the roses.
Chiara has always preferred flowers and plants to people. Slightly tubby, very close to her father, she spends her days helping him run his gardening and yard work service in Kent, in southeast England. It’s been just the two of them since her mother died when she was a child, and she likes her life just fine.
But then she meets Drew Pennington, lead singer of mega successful band Manderley Dreams. He buys one of the estates she tends because he’s so tired of the day in, day out debauchery of band life and just wants a quiet place to exist in peace for a while.
Chiara is resentful of Drew’s partying ways and vague threats to rip out the gardens of his estate to put in tennis courts, and Drew really doesn’t like how Chiara seems to look down on him and his life in general.
In spite of all this, they do become friends, then more, and both of them marvel at how opposites attract.
But then LeeAnne, the baby mama of Drew’s bandmate Gary, enters the picture, and threatens to upset the new life they’ve begun to plan together. LeeAnne comes from nothing, and is determined that she won’t remain a poor nobody her whole life. She’s set her sights higher than being mother to Gary’s illegitimate child, and won’t let anything get in her way.
How can someone as quiet and nice as Chiara fend off an attack from someone like LeeAnne? And what can Drew do about it?
