Olive Brewster is living a small, safe life. She’s happy enough with her job at the local market, it’s no big deal that doesn't have boyfriend, she even likes that she still lives in her childhood home. No drama and no fuss means no problems! And that's just how she likes it.
Except … Olive's best friend in the world, Birdie, is dying.
Birdie has one final wish. She wants to track down her first love, her epic once in a lifetime love, her "Big Sexy Love", Chuck. And because she's stuck in the hospital she needs Olive's help to do it. But there’s a teeny problem: Chuck is somewhere in New York and Olive has never even left her home town, let alone roamed the crazy streets of Manhattan!
As if the big city isn't scary enough, Olive has to contend with Seth, a cocky comedy TV writer who thinks she’s a joke; Anders, a bored socialite who’s taken a shine to her; and the fact that no matter how hard she tries to track down Chuck, he does not seem to want to be found.
Can Olive learn to overcome her fears, abandon her old safe routine and fulfil her best friend’s dying wish? It's going to take extra bravery, one badass attitude and a whole lot of Big Sexy Love to make it happen …
Well, what can I say about Big Sexy Love? It's an outrageous tale, about an ordinary woman who gets into the most outrageous and extraordinary predicaments. How anyone could end up in so much trouble is beyond belief. It's totally over the top.
But it is also just about the funniest book I have ever read.
Olive has lived her life as safe as possible. She doesn't like change. But then her friend, Birdie, has a dying wish that only Olive can fulfill; Olive doesn't really get a choice in the matter.
So off she goes, to New York, and her troubles start when she bumps into the most arrogant man ever, the irritatingly very handsome Seth. She also meets other larger than life characters; the mysterious and very strange Anders, and outspoken elderly neighbour, Mrs Ramiriz.
Yes it's bonkers, mad, a helter-skelter riot of a read, and as I said, Olive's adventures are utterly outrageous.
I loved it!
