Becoming Blue by Angie Brashears

Every single thing I’ve been taught not to do…I just did.

Talk to a stranger? Check

Get in a car with a stranger? Check

Go to a second location? Check

Go into a stranger’s house? Check

Take candy from a stranger? Check

If this is a kidnapping, it’s the kindest one I’ve ever heard of.

I’m living a fat girl fantasy. Snatched from a Weight Watcher meeting by a powdered-donut eating stranger, was by far the most exciting thing that had ever happened to me. Who knew I didn’t need to make appointments or attend meetings to have someone to talk to. A Friend. Two Friends. A dark, intense stranger. Secrets.

Everything I ever wanted, and something’s I didn’t. Not every tasty treat is for eating.

To each his own….right?

Mature theme, sexual content, may contain triggers…you’ve been warned

Let me start by saying this is not your average love story. This book deals with some darker themes, along with some fetishes that are definitely beyond what we normally hear about.

Our story starts with Sara, no H, at a weight loss meeting. Sara attends these meetings but nothing ever clicks for her. But at this particular meeting, she meets Sasha, who has decided to rescue Sara and simultaneously recruit her to join Chubby Chasers.

I know this is the debut book for Angie Brashears and I have to applaud her for taking this book in directions that I don’t think many debut authors would want to go in. Just being up front, this book won’t be for everyone. And even for myself, it took me a bit to warm up to the story line. The one thing I really liked about that is as the reader is warming up to new ways of thinking, so is Sara. She’s also learning to change her way of thinking and opening her mind to new possibilities.

Chubby Chasers is basically a web cam service. The women who work there might partake in other fetishes for their client, such as BDSM, but it can also include feeding. That’s where Javier aka Javi comes in. He’s primarily the resident handyman around the house. But as our story continues, his relationship with Sara grows. Sara’s “stage” name is Blue. The thing about Javi is that he’s a feeder…and he’s got a darker side. One that Blue has no idea about.

For a debut novel, this book is fantastic. The author seamlessly introduces to this cast of characters, all while keeping the story going in one direction. The story does handle topics that I can honestly say I’ve not read before. Even though they may be topics that one isn’t comfortable thinking about, the story is extremely refreshing in the fact that its something different.

I would absolutely recommend this book. I loved seeing a debut novel written so well. Furthermore, I admire the courage and bravery that it takes to not play by the “romance rules” and to push an idea that isn’t the norm.

*This book is the first in a series. The second and third books are out now**
