A Steamy Curvy Younger Woman Instalove Romance

The speed dating event at the pub has been a complete disaster right from the start. Five minutes of meaningless conversation; that isn’t the recipe for romance. I’m ready to give up all hope, when instead of me finding love, trouble finds me.

The moment Dean comes to my rescue, a switch flips in me. Perhaps tonight isn’t a complete waste after all? He’s the strong, silent type, and I’m unable to read him at all. but I’m determined to break through his walls and find out if he feels the same.

All night, I’ve kept an eye on her. How could I not, when she’s the most beautiful woman in the room? Inevitably, her luscious curves turn other heads as well, and before long, a fight erupts. It feels so good to intervene; to hold her in my arms after and see the gratitude in her eyes.

But she doesn’t know who I am. She doesn’t know what I’ve done. It would be better for everyone involved if I back away now. Because the more time I spend with her, the closer I come to forgetting why I can’t give her the sort of love she deserves.

Note: this self-contained beauty and the beast themed read may end up melting not just your Kindle, but your heart as well! If you love steamy body positive romance stories featuring protective older men and a curvy younger women, this third installment in L. Moone’s Coffee Shop Girls series is going to tick all your boxes! Every book follows a different couple from the moment lightning first strikes all the way to their happily ever after. They can be read in any order, but for maximum enjoyment I suggest you start with Book 1, Fireworks.

BlueSeal’s Review of Illicit by L. Moone

We have come to the final installment in the Coffee Shop Girls by L. Moone.  This has been a fun novella series. All of the books have been quick, easy, and STEAMY but really left me wanting more of the story.  Grab your coffee and let’s chat about my favorite book in the series – Beauty by L. Moone.


Dean, I love that name, is a huge, brooding bouncer at a small bar.  For two years, Dean has stood outside of the White Hart bar. He is far away from the hustle and bustle of city life and it is the only job that a person with his record can get. Dean is destined to be alone.  


It is Valentine’s Day and Megan has agreed to attend a speed dating event at the bar where her friend words.  How pathetic…speed dating on Valentine’s Day. The men in the bar are duds compared to the warrior-like, bouncer at the door who belongs on the set of Vikings.  Can Megan break through Dean’s carefully built walls?


Like I said previously, Beauty is my favorite book of the Coffee Shop Girls series!  Maybe it is because Dean is a dark, brooding man. That tends to be my type but I like his story and it pulled on my heartstrings.  Again, this novella feels like the beginning of a book instead of a full story and I, for one, would love to see this one developed in a full book!  My rating for Beauty by L. Moone…5 out of 5 propellers.

Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.
