I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
In this book we meet Teague and Charlie. Charlie is a girl that has been put down all her life for her size. The only person who was on her side was her mom and when she passed way her father left too. Her best friend was the one other person she thought she could count on until she went away to fat camp during high school and came back a changed person. Charlie still hangs out with her friend but they aren't as close as they use to be and she constantly feels like Julie needs another person to put down just to feel good about herself and Charlie is usually that person. Charlie agrees to go to this weekly workout with Julie and when they get a substitute instructor (Teague) some of the hurtful things Julie says really stick with Charlie. Will she give Teague a chance or will she let her insecurities run the show for her?
Teague agrees to help his buddy Eddie out, of course for a price. However Eddie tells him there are women there that are right up his alley and since he is just a sub instructor he is not restricted to any code. When Teague first lays eyes or Charlie he has to pry himself away but promises he will be back. He knows he flusters that woman but just can't help himself. So when Charlie shows up on his doorstep after being abandoned one night he is just counting his lucky stars. He forgets his pick up game he forgets his friends and is zeroed in on Charlie. However the more he gets to know this woman the more he wants to. Can he get Charlie to open up and give him a chance to prove he isn't like all the losers she has known in the past?
This is a great story that shows us size doesn't matter and never to judge someone by their size. Though Charlie is a plus size woman she can work out with the best of them and not be breathing hard like some other people. I also think that the way Teague treats Charlie shows us as women we should never settle for less than we deserve. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. You will find yourself reading some parts of it again and again to remind yourself you are worthy of something great.
