"Losing fifty pounds is an incredible achievement. But for Melissa Atherton, progress doesn’t come with praise—a scathing comment from an evil cousin at a bridal shower threatens to crush her new self-esteem. Who will she bring to the upcoming wedding? Showing up without a date would be humiliating. It just isn’t an option.
Personal trainer Jake Sawyer was attracted to Melissa before she lost weight, but her progress has him floored. When she admits she plans to hire a male escort—and why—his heart all but breaks. Melissa’s come too far to be knocked down, especially by her own family. He’ll go as her date…and figure out a way to keep his hands to himself.
But when a steamy hotel room encounter takes them both by surprise, Jake balks. He’s sworn never to date one of his clients, not again. And Melissa can’t bear to be just friends with the man who treated her so tenderly, even if it was only for a weekend. Jake’s helped her see she’s strong enough to stand up for herself, but will she find the strength to pursue the only man who’s ever seen the real her?"
|I love this series!! The heroes and heroines are to die for. This book was truly one of my favorites!!! I can't wait for more of this series!! Jake was awesome and Melissa was wonderful. |
You can tell right from the beginning they like each other but they are trying to fight it. After all Jake has had a bad experience before but he can't help the attraction he feels toward Melissa. Melissa has been over weight and now its time to show everyone she has what it takes to be healthy.
I loved that Melissa was a strong heroine and wasn't annoying. She is determined to try to stay on the bright side no matter the cost. At times I wanted to just wake Jake up but when he finally got his head out of his ass I loved him as much as Melissa did.
Now the wait for Justin is truly going to suck but I know it will be worth it in the end!!!
This book is due out September 8th. Pre-order it today!!!
