SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS
Jeremy Johnson is stuck between a rock and a hard place. He doesn’t want to be overweight anymore, but temptation is unavoidable thanks to his job. Deciding to make a change for the better, he dedicates himself to implementing a new diet and exercise program that he hopes will whip him into shape. He makes himself a promise that he intends to keep, but it doesn’t help that he works for a food-focused blog where he spends his days writing about delicious, forbidden food that he knows he’s not supposed to indulge in.
But when the blog he writes for is purchased by a fitness company, he realizes he’s going to be the odd man out among his new fit, attractive coworkers. On his first day, he meets the infamous Ryan Bennett, a man known for his dedication to all things fitness. Muscles, cockiness, and a trademark smile all seem natural to Ryan, but no one seems to know if he’s attracted to men or women.
With encouragement from Ryan, Jeremy decides to shape up his life, work on his attitude, and rebuild his physique, but he soon discovers that it isn’t as easy as he originally thought. While maneuvering his way toward a new lifestyle, he watches as Ryan charms and teases every man – and woman – in his vicinity. But when Jeremy senses a flirtatious vibe from Ryan, he’s forced to choose between allowing his weight to define him or ditching his old insecurities for a shot at something exciting.
I really enjoyed this story, mostly because I felt related to Jeremy to such a degree that it was not even funny. Not only with the desire of lose the extra weight but also the other problems, his insecurity, his love life, and the new job situation.
The whole idea of weight loss to keep your job it’s not a foreign concept for me. I know it’s probably the same for other people too. When you feel you have to please your boss to be able to keep paying the rent, the situation gets stressing.
Something else I love about the book was the romance. I love that there was someone out there that could appreciate Jeremy as his chubby, adorable, intelligent self. I also love the fact that he stick to the weight loss even when his biggest motivation was not in the picture.
Lastly, I love to read characters getting into tight situations and the pick of the book with Jeremy’s boss was just the icing on the cake for me. I enjoy situations like that, am I weird? Probably LOL
The writing was good, simple and the flow didn’t have a problem throughout the whole book. No complicated wording that would make me slow down while reading.
What I didn’t like was the ending of the book.
Let me rephrase that…
I wasn’t completely satisfied with the ending on the book. I wanted more, because I love drama between couples, but that’s just me.
Overall it was a pretty amazing story to read and I would get to read more Jason Collins books in the future. I heard about this Colorado or something, a story of him that it’s incredible, according to other people *smiles* I’ll have to read it to find out.
Hello everyone, I’m Jason Collins. I’m a writer from the South, but I’ve been living in New York for quite a while, so I’ve started calling myself a “southern New Yorker”. There’s nothing I love more than a hot cup of coffee and a good story, so I try to do most of my writing when I have a fresh pot available. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
