    Might be spoilery Abandoned.I knew what it was going to be like before I started reading it, but it was free, so hey, why not, right I understand that the protag was in a completely different situation that I myself am, and I get that But as interesting as the story itself was, the constant fat shaming was not endearing me to the character Yes, she grew up a size 10 and at some point between her youth and mid 30s she doubled in size and was horribly humiliated during a potential sexual encount Might be spoilery Abandoned.I knew what it was going to be like before I started reading it, but it was free, so hey, why not, right I understand that the protag was in a completely different situation that I myself am, and I get that But as interesting as the story itself was, the constant fat shaming was not endearing me to the character Yes, she grew up a size 10 and at some point between her youth and mid 30s she doubled in size and was horribly humiliated during a potential sexual encounter So she doesn t try again for another 10 years And feels like she HAD to lose weight to be worthy of some guy who is perfect for her on paper and we have yet to meet but she doesn t want to have sex with him in her once again thin body that she inspects ALL THE TIME without giving it a test drive with someone who she won t hate if he s repulsed by her which is a total crock of shit, because she had to prepare herself when she thought he was going to say he was leaving their date early because she was too fat Come on.Of course, this might just be me I ve never been skinny so I don t know what it feels like to be this person But our heroine s shallow need to take her new body for a test drive so she can shallowly marry a trophy husband that might be a total asshole who knows, I didn t get far enough to even find out if we meet this guy does not endear me to her I ll read a story about a self aware bitch any day But Liz is not a nice person and she doesn t even realize it Or at least that s what I m getting here

    DNF d at 18% I had zero respect for either hero or heroine, and my tolerance level for woe is me, I used to be fat bullshit is abysmally low OK, you used to be overweight and now you re not We get it Move.On.The saddest part, however, was that even though I was annoyed, I was also bored And I think that s saying something.

too impressed with some of the reviews for it Still, it was free and I decided there wouldn t be any loss should I try it and not like it I m really happy I took the chance Summary Elizabeth Lizzie Hampton is headed to her small Michigan hometown from where she has lived the past eighteen years in Detroit She s a new woman and has a plan to fulfill the one dream she never allowed herself to jumpstarted her new way of life See, for twelve of the last eighteen years, Lizzie has been overweight and distant from personal relationships besides those with her parents, brother, and two best friends, Katie and Alison She has always been successful and confident in her career of public relations, but seemed to disconnect from her body, make bad choices, and continue to do nothing about it Three years ago, she woke up She started losing weight, feeling better about herself, but looking better doesn t change the fact that she is woefully inexperienced with intimacy and scared to get back out there This is where her plan comes in She takes two months off work after tying up loose ends , makes the trip home to Copper Country to visit her parents , and then casually runs into her ex flame, Finn Robbins, thereby creating the opportunity to try out her new body on him before jumping into a serious relationship with someone else Finn was a boy Lizzie dated when she was eighteen, and they both felt the undeniable need and longing they had for each other, but Lizzie wouldn t let herself ever from the plan she had for her life which didn t include giving up her v card before junior year of college Still, she wanted Finn, the bad boy that made her body come alive, but Finn broke her heart, ruining any chance she would have given him Now, she s determined to have him, and test out her new slimmer body at the same time Finn Robbins cant believe he s looking at the one girl he wanted so badly, but never got Essentially, his one that got away But now she s back and he can do all the things he never got to do before, and finally let go of his mental hold on her It s plain to see that both Finn and Lizzie are different people, have lived through life, which can take its toll, but the underlying passion and chemistry they shared so long ago is still there and humming right along Both are pleased that they are looking for the same thing, a Summer fling, and then they can move on with their lives Whether good or bad, life and love always has a way of veering from any plan, and soon Finn and Lizzie are caught up in so muchthan a fling Finn has lived a hard life that has taught him some painful lessons, right or wrong, and Lizzie has a long journey to complete with her body image and confidence in that arena, not to mention uncovering the reason for her weight gain to begin with It will take a lot of trust on both sides, as well as Finn s son, Lizzie s friends, and the mysterious Annie to make their way to a place where they can show their love for each other freely and commit to a future Only time will tell if old habits and past lessons will get in the way of what they each were looking for, but never saw.I loved the storyline Not only was is about a woman s positive image of herself, and the struggle a woman can go through to achieve it, but it was also about pride and self worth I adored Lizzie She was sweet, kind, giving, and funny Her ability to bring humor was admirable, and the struggle she went through to come to a place where she was content in her looks was inspirational Every woman has had issues with their looks at some point, and letting people know it s okay and that you can t internalize it is a very good lesson So many people have eating issues and choose to suffer in silence instead of being criticized or brought low for it Lizzie, realized she was shoving her emotions down deep in order to be the person everyone expected, and damaged her body in doing so She s a very strong woman Finn was a classic example of a man raised in a neglectful home His views on women were skewed by his alcoholic mother and ex wife, and his own self worth damaged from the difficult childhood he led He was a fantastic father, and incredibly strong for standing by his family like he did Him and Lizzie together were amazingly sweet, and I love that they got their second chance at romance Supporting cast was just as captivating and really cemented my intention to keep reading the series Just an aside or soapbox moment, if you will, about something I read in some reviews before readingI don t feel this book was about a woman who couldn t be happy unless she was a twig Even after she lost the weight, it said multiple times that she was soft and curvy, which is in the image of the average woman She was overweight Unhealthily so, and decided to change her life, elongate it by becoming healthier, and making herself happy That is admirable, and I guess my point is, is that those reviews that hinted she was shallow for her actions in losing weight and her plan afterwards obviously didn t read closely enough A fantastic read in which the author pulled me in from the start, I look forward to reading on about Katie and Alison 3

    Some people have a very curious idea about what acceptable behaviour is.Oh, and anyone who was so obese as to have stretchmarks, doesn t just have jiggely thighs , they have an enormous excess of skin, which needs surgery, and that leaves scars I would have been on board with an honest story about what it means to lose so much weight and then start being intimate again, but as it is this heroine is a totally pukeworthy liar, and the weight loss comes right out of a Disney movie.

    Oh, hurrah, another book where the h had absolutely no self esteem due to her weight, and who had the juvenile logic of a middle schooler.Why can t there be a book where the plus sized curvy heroine has SOME self esteem issues like many women do , but isn t in need of ongoing psychological help

    I bought this book after a bad review Maybe not bad, but probably a C review I think the reviewer said the hero was to insecure for her Since I m way over Alphaholes, I ll give anything that s not borderline abusive a try It does brush against one of my least favorite tropes lose weight find love but I read it anyway.I m glad to report that the weight is not about the hero and his reaction to the heroine s new body He only knew her when she was thin in her earlier life so he wasn t I bought this book after a bad review Maybe not bad, but probably a C review I think the reviewer said the hero was to insecure for her Since I m way over Alphaholes, I ll give anything that s not borderline abusive a try It does brush against one of my least favorite tropes lose weight find love but I read it anyway.I m glad to report that the weight is not about the hero and his reaction to the heroine s new body He only knew her when she was thin in her earlier life so he wasn t one of those I never noticed you until you peeled off that fat and glasses and maybe unpinned your hair.The first 45 percent of the book had me chugging along ot see what would happen next The last 55 percent I just waded through to get to the end The writing is fine, compelling at points but in the end, I think I agree with the reviewer I didn t much like the hero His insecurities about accepting charity, being poor, working a minimum wage job, not following his dreams got boring I wanted to shake him, tell him to call off the pity party, and get it together All that said, there was a preview of book 2 in the seriesand I m actually thinking about getting it There s a LOT on the TBR pile right now, so we ll see
