Overview

Zuri Day sizzles with a seductive story of one woman's quest to take control of her life … while experiencing an attraction too explosive to resist.

D'Andra Smalls has had enough. She's tired of being overweight, she's had it with her overbearing family, and she's fed up with settling for any guy who'll have her-especially since she caught her boyfriend cheating with her best friend.

But working out and avoiding delicious food is easy compared to resisting the charms of Los Angeles' hottest personal trainer, JaJuan "Night" Simmons. Six feet of chiseled muscle and fine chocolate, he's challenging her body in all the right ways-and proving there's a sensitive, caring guy under the good looks. Their shared career goals of promoting health and fitness bring them even closer together. But D'Andra feels it may be too much of a good thing. After succeeding in taking command of her life, can she risk losing control of her heart?

    AAMBC Book Reviews

    I must say that Body By Night was a absolutely perfect read. I enjoyed this story so much that I am still thinking about the characters and only wish I knew them to see what they were up to now. This is a romance novel focused on a woman who is a not your small petite frame but she will claim the heart of one on the most honorable and sexy men in L.A. This book reminded me so much of a beauty and the beast but the main character De'Andra will face more then you ever imagine in the short amount of months. When you read this novel you will more then fall in love with these characters but you will become apart of the story. Go get this book

    I REALLY enjoyed this story!

    While reading I was treated to an inspiring, intriguing, amusing and romantic DELIGHT. I was TOTALLY caught up in the voluptuous Ms. D'Andra (her MANY issues) and the AMAZING, sexy-as-all-get-out, BOSSY Mr. Night, and their budding friendship-turned-relationship from beginning to end. Ms. Day weaves quite an ENGAGING storyline, with a cast of well-developed and UNFORGETTABLE characters. The conflict and drama that the characters, (main and secondary) struggle with makes this novel that much more compelling and entertaining. Ms. Day not only entertains, but she also provides some informative tidbits regarding the SERIOUS health issues threatening our race (especially women). She creates quite a CAPTIVATING grown & sexy romance about personal and professional growth, love and life, and the UNFORTUNATE dysfunctional dynamics that some families experience. IMO this is definitely a WORTHWHILE read! KUDOS, Ms. Day!

    OK?

    I am a fan of this author and have several of her books. I really was not crazy about this book. In my opinion it was just okay. I wanted more of a connection between Night and Deandra. I just didnt feel the spark between them that is supposed inspire me to keep reading. The love scenes were great but I wanted them to have that same spark outside of the bedroom. Night's use of the word "doll" really worked my nerves. I also hated the ending and felt like I was being punked! Maybe the author got tired and just decided to end the book in such an abrupt manner. On the other hand as a plus size woman I do appreciate a story where the main character is just like me. Also, the book has a couple of twists and turns. Alas, the book is a decent read on a rainy day!

    hmmm.... Body by night

    Well written fiction about health, nutrition, and exercise with a little romance. D'Andra is a young full figured woman with health issues who sets out to lose weight. Night, a handsome personal physical trainer is helping D'Andra reach that goal.

    D'Andra has just ended a relationship with her boyfriend after she catches him in bed with her best friend, which she refers to all men as "walking dirt". Night has also ended his relationship with his girlfriend due to trust issues. So the attraction between the two heats up during D'Andra training sessions.

    There are quite a few things going on in this book regarding D'Andra and Night families, which I won't go into. I consider this book an enjoyable read, but I didn't feel the "jump off the page" love connection between D'Andra and Night, so with that said judge for yourself, read the book.
