Liza reviews Learning Curve by Melissa Kendall


Today, I have the fabulous Melissa Kendall over with two of her very fine novellas.
In addition, I review Learning Curves.




Learning Curve by Melissa Kendall



Madame Eve may have helped them find one another. But meshing their two worlds together isn’t easy.
When Dean is nominated for an Emmy, he is so excited he invites Sally to be is date for the evening.
Sally is reluctant at first but eventually agrees. Petrified the world media will make fun of her for being the fat chick on Dean’s arm, she works her butt off to lose weight before the big event.

Can Dean and Sally learn to make life together work? Or will the reality of the differences in their lives be too difficult to overcome?




This novella is short and spicy with lots of curves. The curves belong to Sally. Madame Eve hooked her up with Dean, a television star, and they hit off right away. But a hook up is not a long term commitment. But how can they even consider that when they live so far apart? There is also Sally’s fear of being ridiculed for being with such a hunk. She’s a size 18. A man like Dean should be with a skinny model.

But Dean has fixated on his curvaceous beauty and the two are fabulous bed partners. When he’s nominated for an Emmy, his life starts to change and they are given the opportunity to commit to this relationship or walk away.


This novella is short and spicy with lots of curves.  The steamy sex works as does the story. The only time I became discontented is when it ended. I wanted it to go on.








 Read where Sally and Dean’s story began.

Sally Austens’ sexual experience is limited and unsatisfactory at best. Now, as she turns thirty, it looks like the relationship train has missed her stop. When a friend tells her about 1Night Stand and suggests it might just change her life, she’s skeptical but shoots for the stars when asking for her perfect date. Go big or go home, right?

Dean Martorino lives in the public eye. Surrounded on a daily basis by society’s idea of stunning beauty, he longs for a woman with curves he can get lost in. At the suggestion of his long-time friend and manager, Dean shares his secret with Madame Eve hoping she can find him a match to fill his arms and satisfy his desires.

Can Sally accept the beauty Dean sees in her long enough to curve his appetite or will they both go home hungry?
