I fled New York with my heart breaking and a million questions. Foremost in my mind was whether Jeff would even see me after the colossal mess that New York turned out to be.
I discovered the answer, but that only spawned even more questions, many of the yes or no variety…
Well, Big Girls Do It On Top is a pleasant surprise after Big Girls Do It Wilder. Perhaps because of the characters. Book 3 was mainly about Chase, and I don’t like him. Contrarily, Jeff is just awesome: loyal, understanding, honest, loving, caring, and simply perfect.
So, Anna is back in Detroit. She considers herself a slut for leaving Jeff for one message by Chase without a thought. She knows that she has to face Jeff soon, but now she just isn’t tough enough to do it. She is confused, angry, sad, and truly, deeply regrets what she has done.
A part of me wanted to fly straight back to New York and punch Chase in the face. Another part wanted to give him a chance to explain. The third part of me wanted to run to Jeff and beg him to take me back. The fourth and, at that moment, the strongest part wanted to just forget both of them and bury my head in the sand.
She tries to analyze her feelings and motivations, and decode Chase’s motives too.
I realized I’d been stupid to think it ever could have been anything for Chase but what it was: a fun distraction. He was a rock star, and I was his flavor of the week.
Is she right?
I think Anna is well on her way to getting over Chase with her reasoning about what their relationship gave her.
She realizes that her connection with Jeff is soul-deep, and finally displays backbone in facing and apologizing to him. Jeff’s reaction is amazing, and they start to rebuild what was ruined.
Weeks pass, and Anna vows to herself not to mess up it this time. She seems to be sure in her feelings, but she still has doubts if she had been right about Chase. Jeff is desperate to keep Anna this time, and makes a hasty move.
But hell, Chase is back, making a scene meant to be romantic, but he only embarrasses and enrages Anna. I really appreciate Anna’s reaction, as I also hate these things in romances (*highlight to read* namely public love declaration and proposing) like what Chase did.
The erotica is totally different now than it was in the previous book: intimate, meaningful, substantial, and deeply romantic.
The story ends with a cliffhanger, so make sure you already have the next installment before reading this book!
