Hell yeah. A much, much more precise title. Recommended to Michelle by: Reviews and my lovely daughter.. I was looking for light and fluffy and have almost completely exhausted my "go to" authors; Gibson, Shalvis, James, etc.
I've heard quite a bit about this author; fairly good reviews, my daughter reads and likes her The book blurbs never really attracted me, but what the hay, I'll give it a go. The boredom factor got to me. It was only a little over pages, but by the 60th page, nothing much had happened and I had to let it go. Just yuck. And the worst part, I took up my Sunday figuring it out!! Not my cuppa, but others seem to like her. May be me, but either way, I'm outa' here.. Aug 01, Lisa Rivera rated it did not like it. I can't say I really liked this book.
Something about Lucy just irritated me til the point I wanted to start popping Benadryl.
She was very I expected a little more depth from someone who'd been so completely traumatized and she didn't live up to my expectations. Theo was also missing something. He wasn't very charming and seemed to have more emotional baggage than Lucy. The only aspect I enjoyed was his relationship with his brother, though, it was really just another thing to add to I can't say I really liked this book. The only aspect I enjoyed was his relationship with his brother, though, it was really just another thing to add to his 'perfect' list. Overall, I found myself skimming the book so I wouldn't have to listen to Lucy's whining and Theo's boring inner monologue.
Unexpectedly good and with more depth than I thought there would be. Jun 05, Jaclyn rated it it was ok Shelves: chick-lit , summerchallenge , books-i-own. I don't know what I didn't like about this book, but I did not put it down with that happy feeling that I wished there were more and was so happy to have read this story. Right off the bat I will say that for me the romance scenes were a bit crass and that was a bit of a turn off for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a good romance scene, but her terminology made the scenes ugly to me, not romantic and exciting. I may be revealing myself as overly prude, but I abhor the use of the p-word.
The I don't know what I didn't like about this book, but I did not put it down with that happy feeling that I wished there were more and was so happy to have read this story. The story was also extremly formulaic: boy is beautiful and perfect, girl starts out fat with low self-esteem, girl loses weight, they fall in love but it has nothing to do with how her body looks, it's her inner strength and beauty; the weight loss is just a bonus. Maybe I've read too many romances lately and have become jaded and picky.cetamdekab.tk

Maybe now that I'm reading more classics and novels with some meat these all seem formulaic to me. Sep 13, Buscadora rated it it was ok. I can see how this is a fun and lighthearted read. The overweight to beauty plot is just not for me.
He loves Lucy
The heroine is too insecure and it's not enough a plot to keep me interested. I went for it anyway, because I saw a list with this book ranked for its witty dialogue. I didn't get any witty dialogue from this book. The heroine is self deprecating in a funny way, but I didn't get any witty banter.

I found it all to be over the top from the sneaky boss to the model as a best friend. Theo is a gorge I can see how this is a fun and lighthearted read.
Theo is a gorgeous personal trainer who is the sole caretaker for his Down Syndrome brother and paying his way through med school. It's a bit much. As for Lucy, she's OK but I get annoyed by the insecure, overweight heroines. I should have passed on this one.
And Theo saying that a size 14 and lbs is "average". Now that's totally over the top. Jul 08, Colleen rated it it was amazing Shelves: , library-has-it , favorites , contemporary-romance. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard while reading a book. It was hilarious throughout the entire book. I loved Lucy's sarcasm and quick wit - even when she was large. I completely related with her self esteem issues when it came to her body. I think anyone who has ever been overweight whether it be 20lbs or a lbs would be able to relate to what she was going through.
Watching her relationship with Theo change was definitely a pleasure to read. I wish Ms. Donovan would write a story ab I don't think I have ever laughed so hard while reading a book. Donovan would write a story about one of the secondary characters so maybe we could get a glimpse of Theo and Lucy now. I really can't say enough about this book! I will most likely go out and buy it I borrowed it from the library so I can have it on standby when I have a really bad day.
View 2 comments. I had a lot of mixed feelings about this one. On one hand, I loved the character of Theo and his flirty behavior when motivating Lucy. On the other hand, I found the entire story to be very unrealistic. Lucy was losing weight way too fast, and I missed some of the realism that could come with the tale. Yes, I wanted a happy ending, but I wanted a more realistic one.

It was a bit too sappy for me in the end. I think it would have been cool if she stalled at pounds or something like that View all 7 comments. I was surprised that I liked this book. Basing a story on losing pounds in a year could easily go badly, but the characters stayed pretty realistic. They each had their own baggage to get over to grow and had some good supporting characters.
Her boss was a bit over the top though. Recommended to Manda by: Monica. Shelves: contemporary.
What a fun, sexy read!
