Big & Beautiful is about friendship as much as it is about relationships. The four women who start the series have been best friends for years, and as only friends can do, give each other shit all the time. Life is so much better when you share it with your best friends!
Excerpt from Chubby & Charming
I laughed along with them, flipping pancakes and eating a hot one every once in a while. Claire made me a hot chocolate while the rest of them enjoyed coffee. After breakfast we piled on my couch and flipped channels before deciding to watch Bridesmaids.
My phone beeped with a new message shortly after the movie started. I picked it up halfheartedly, not expecting more than an alert about coupons ready to expire or something like that.
Xander’s name was on my screen and I opened the message. Claire paused the movie, “What’s going on?”
“Nothing, just a text from Xander. Oh, he’s so sweet,” I said, handing my phone over. He’d taken a picture of himself with an empty pillow next to him and said, ‘Your pillow and I are lonely without you.’
The phone beeped again when it reached Addi on the other end of the couch and she squealed and dropped my phone. “What happened?”
“I didn’t need to read that!” she called. “Oh shit, I can’t unread it.”
“What did it say?” Sam asked laughing. She picked up my phone and read the text, laughing. She passed the phone to Claire who responded similarly to Addi and tossed the phone to me.
I read, ‘My cock misses you, too. I’m ready for round two when you are.’
I blushed and sent him a quick text back for us to get together the next day. He responded instantly that he wanted to see my place. I sent him my address and agreed he’d come over for dinner after work the next day.
I tucked my phone away and settled back into the movie, feeling good about the not so awkward morning after.
