in Reading Order Guide:

Her name is Peaches, huh? *giggle* ;) It’s already making me chuckle. I’ve been told that tears are involved, but they are tears of laughter. I LOVE the sound of that! And and!! It’s of the “famous actor/normal girl” genre, plus I’m getting a love triangle (love square?) vibe. YAY US!! Something lighthearted, steamy and fun (and quite possibly angsty)! And the reviews make it look awesome!

Recommended by:

Susanna: My favorite book was Stardust by Mimi Strong! Loved Peaches and the way she accepted her body type! A great role model.

Jen: Loved,loved, loved ‘Stardust’ by Mimi Strong. I loved Peaches! Funny and heartbreaking all at the same time! Can’t wait for the sequel!

Shannon: So excited! The final Peaches Monroe book is released early!!! … enjoyed them both. Laugh out loud funny AND hot!

Helen: I’ve been dying to read Starfire. Maryse,why haven’t you read these books yet? You will love Peaches.I promise.

About book #1:

Peaches Monroe is a curvy blonde who manages a little bookstore, in a small town in Washington State. She’s twenty-two, and shares a house with her cousin, who’s also her best friend. Life is good for Peaches. Simple, but good. Sometimes she gets a little wild and goes drunk-shopping on the internet. She’s never had a boyfriend, but that just leaves more time for her books.

Dalton Deangelo is a hot, young actor who sets ladies’ hearts on fire. He shot to stardom from out of nowhere, and he’s very secretive about his past, preferring to focus on his work. He’s famous for playing the sexiest bad boy vampire on TV. Week after week, he’s seen kissing beautiful, thin actresses … or burying his face between their legs.

Now Dalton is in Beaverdale, Washington, to shoot an indie movie over the summer. He comes running into the bookstore looking for a place to hide from reporters, and refuses to leave until he gets a date with Peaches. As soon as Peaches kisses Dalton, her quiet, small-town life begins to unravel.

Peaches Monroe is launched toward the stars, beginning with a job in LA as a plus-size model for a line of sexy underwear.

Her relationship with Dalton has its obstacles, and she finds herself entangled not just with Dalton, but with a passionate male underwear model named Keith Raven, as well as an old crush from her past, Adrian Storm.

Life has become anything but simple for Peaches Monroe. Will her summer end in a wedding? And if so, who will be the groom?

I absolutely loved these books.. Peaches is someone you want as a friend and her story has you laughing, crying, and laughing and crying some more… But most tears are of the happy variety. This series is a must!

I love Peaches Monroe. These books are ne of my favorites. Peaches is a young woman who isn’t afraid to say what in her mind. She lives lol fe to the fullest and foes after what she wants even when she doesn’t even realize it. But one thing she does know is that her heart belongs to Dalton..peaches gets her man and wedding.

Ooooh my goodness this series is aaaamazing!!!! I absolutely adore Peaches- she is such a genuine, relatable character. And the guys – whoooo…hot hot hot! Even the background characters are wonderful. Mimi created such a hilarious series but there are also tender and sexy moments too. Seriously- everyone should read this series….such a feel good read.
