This novella deals with the struggles of weight loss, and low self-esteem. I recommend it to all women, and those who enjoy contemporary romances and chick lit.
Summary: Mollie McGree (heroine) is a new member at World Class Gym. She joined in the hopes of losing weight. If she succeeds, maybe JC will be interested in more than just her friendship. Mollie’s a bit on the heavy side. Her self-esteem is so low as to be considered non-existent, and her confidence turned tail and ran. (Probably in search of food).
While exercising one day, a gorgeous man named Conner Bean (hero) strikes up a conversation. Turns out, he’s a trainer and one of the owners of the gym. He’s hot and millionaire-rich sans the arrogance. Right off the bat, Mollie knows she has a snowball’s chance in hell with this guy. He’s too perfect; she’s too…well, heavy. Conner belongs with one of those women that look as if they materialized right out of a skin mag.
Ms. McGree soon realizes two truths. Her friend JC is interested in someone else, and Conner appears interested in her. Will Mollie have the confidence to let a sexy trainer into her life? Or, will she drop him like a heavy set of dumbbells?
Review: It was refreshing to read about a relatable heroine. One that doesn’t have a perfect physique and that deals with issues many women face today. I enjoyed the secondary characters, as much as the main ones. Especially Suzy, Conner’s cousin and Mollie’s best friend, respectively.
Favorite Scene: There’s a massage session where Conner’s sexually multi-tasking. Getting in touch with his manhood and pleasuring Mollie. Holy massage session, Batman!
Favorite Character: Conner. Why? He’s amiable, good looking, successful, and family oriented without arrogance, or womanizing tendencies. A really nice hero. (I may have to change my stance on rogues. Maybe.)
Comedic Element: There’s a scene where Mollie wants Conner to bite her. This is where we learn she’s always had a vampire fantasy. I laughed because I was thinking to myself, who doesn’t?
