Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich

 
 
Holly is a newly grieving, young widow...deciding to get back into shape that isn't the only thing that changes, she even gets her groove back plus more than she ever could realize.
 
After her husband's death, all Holly wanted to do was one thing...eat, it was the only comfort she could control. So with the extra pounds flying coach feels like hell--especially when she has to sit next to Logan Montgomery. Logan is a personal trainer to famous pro athletes and makes Holly hot and sweaty in all the right and wrong places!
 
Not making Logan's grade on his first-impression meter, he can't help but to be intrigued by her keen insights and sharp wit--which is a welcome change. Considering he was into dating high-maintenance models. Hearing a little about her past, he impulsively offers to help get her back into shape. After some much needed thought, Holly agrees.
 

To both of their surprise, Holly is a natural in the gym, turning into a bona fide looker with killer curves and a fiery new hunger. Neither of them could stop the easy intimacy of the training sessions leading to even more steamy workouts away from the gym.  

Now Logan's friends Chase and his wife Amanda see things are between Logan and Holly are more than just a fling, even though they don't.  Can a man whose life depends on the way people look commit to a woman who doesn't fit his ideal mate? Holly is starting to turn heads, and wonders if she even needs Logan anymore. Do you think they are a couple built to last...or will their differences cause this romance to fizzle?

This book was written to be about self esteem and encouragement for women to love themselves, along with some romance. Boy, oh boy...does that come through this book from front to cover. It was upbeat and intense. All that Holly struggled with from page one till the end. Now I am sure there are many women out there who could similarly be in Holly's shoes in some way. And I am sure there are men out there that have been or will be in Logan's. Guess what! No matter what social media, and magazines tell you...looks really don't and should never truly matter.

I have to give my praise and applauds to Stephanie Evanovich, cause she really did an amazing job with this book and how well it flowed. Though to me the ending was slightly predictable, the way it happened was absolutely incredible. This book all in all was hilarious and there were parts where I wanted to either cry, laugh or both at the same time! So you should go pick up this book and enjoy it as much as I did.
