Overview

Every woman deserves to be loved, and for over-weight, insecure, 24 yr old virgin, Gretchen Lane, it's going to come in the form of the ruggedly handsome, Billy Mack- her new personal trainer...



At 5'8" and 248 pounds, life is anything but, easy for young, insecure, Gretchen Lane. Finding herself once again the victim of a cruel joke involving her weight- Gretchen decides to join a local gym, where she has a chance encounter with personal trainer, Billy Mack.
Billy, living in a world of hard bodies and big egos, finds himself strangely attracted to the young woman, and a relationship quickly develops pairing the most unlikely of couples.

Excerpt from book:

The crowd erupted into laughter when the first fat joke was yelled from the passing car. They fell silent when the 32 oz. soft drink hit my face with a loud smack, before splashing to the ground. I stood soaking wet, stunned, and humiliated. My embarrassment quickly turned to pain, and I wept openly. Not one person asked me if I was okay. I ran home to my apartment, where in a moment of frustration and hurt I actually contemplated suicide. And, then I felt stupid, like I always do. I mean, I guess I should be used to it by now. It’s been happening since I was in the third grade. That’s when I got my nickname, ‘The Pillsbury dough girl.’

    This was my first story in this genre. Good story for the length

    This was my first story in this genre. Good story for the length. A lot of drama, but in a good way. The sex was very steamy, and the characters were very believable.

    BBW....

    People can be really mean, stupid and ignorant. Being a curvy woman myself, I've never had the misfortune to be surrounded with narrow minded people like Gretchen so I consider myself very lucky, but I do understand how she felt. Those guy were jackasses. They were personal trainers which really baffled me b/c their job is to help people like Gretchen not put them down, but alas once a jackass...you know the rest. Billy was a sweet kid, protective.

    Good story line, well written. A bit rushed at the end, the author was descriptive throughout the book but looks like she ran out of time and ran through the last few pages. I'm hoping the next book is more thought out...
