Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancé.
With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough.
While the heartache of her fiancé’s infidelity is still fresh, Charlene is whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday.
But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips?
As dashing Dr. Adam Fitz tries desperately to teach his best friend that she’s worth more than the number on her scales, her girls Vanessa, and Dana are eager to set her up with a boy-toy.
Frustrated, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.

About the Author
Born and bred in Essex, England, Marie Coulson discovered her love of writing in her early teens. Beginning with poetry and song lyrics, she tried her hand at creative writing while studying for her English GCSE. It was love at first line. Unfortunately, Marie's career as a childcare and education practitioner soon took up most of her time and writing became something she only dreamed about. In the summer of 2012 she quit her job and enrolled at university, ready to start a new career as a therapist. This left her with a lot of time on her hands and on August the 20th she sat down and wrote the first chapter of Bound Together. Bound Together was a story that had been waiting three years to be written and when fingers hit the keyboard...Layla, Jared and Ollie's story was born. Look out for other books by Marie Coulson including the tantalizing sequel to Bound Together. Burning Up - Available NOW, Romantic British comedy - Diary Of A Dieter and the Bound Together novella - Last Christmas.

Marie Coulson wrote one of the funniest romance novels ever. Diary of a Dieter was everything I could ask for in a book. Adam and Charlene were lifelong best friends, but it took Charlie some personal failures to figure out Adam loved her for more than a friend.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked Charlene, Adam, and their friends. There were some seriously funny parts and the Grandmother cracked me up (she was priceless!). Charlene had some really interesting dating adventures. Oh my! There were quite a few times I laughed out loud. The first half of the book had a slow build laying out the story and the second half just flew by! It was funny, emotional, had some sexy times in it, and slightly heartbreaking on occasion. I was on the edge of my seat by the end and totally invested. I really loved how Charlene grew and came to her senses. I wasn’t a fan of her self deprecating attitude but since she had gone through so much I completely understood where it came from. I was glad to see her accept and really embrace herself and by the end she was so much stronger for it. And Adam? I love Adam. I *LOVE* Adam. Sweet and sexy. He was a great character! There was one time where I might have yelled at my Kindle about something he did but he redeemed himself by the end. I would totally recommend this book for a fun, lighthearted, make you laugh out loud read!
