Customer Reviews

I really enjoy reading Zuri's books.
Linda Y
I also loved that Night found her attractive even before she dropped some weight and the fact that he wasn't encouraging her to be rail thin, but healthy!
Meks
Full story, good pace, hot love scenes and sweet ending.

Body by Night by Zuri Day is an excellent story about a plus size gal, D'Andra Smalls, and her quest to live a healthier life after an emergency room scare. She decides to go to Bally's but of course she starts having second thoughts and is sitting in her car debating whether or not to enter when this tall drink of chocolate comes up to her and convinces her to go on in. Night is a personal trainer who's working on opening up his own gym. He just got out of a bad relationship and is not necessarily looking for a new one when he finds this beautiful, woman in her car waiting to go inside. She's not his usual supermodel looking type, but he decides to help her out on her quest to be healthy and in the process, falls for her.

D'Andra has her issues with men, especially after finding her childhood friend in bed with her boyfriend and having a mother and sister who treat her like Cinderella before she meets her fairy godmother. Although she tries to keep herself from falling for Night, she does anyway. But they still have to deal with his conniving ex, her selfish sister, her emotionally abusive mother and all kinds of stuff.

This is an excellent book! I love that D'Andra's reasons for loosing weight had nothing to do with being a size 2 but with being healthy. That's a much more positive message. And Night was fabulous. He had his own issues to work through and he wasn't looking for romance any more than she was. But romance found them where they least expected it. If you want a good, emotionally satisfying read, pick up Body by Night by Zuri Day.

Hats off to Ms. Zuri Day for stepping out and creating a unique story line that features a beautiful voluputous fuller-figure heroine that gets her "Midnight" man...I just loved this storyline and though I'm already an empowered woman, I became even more empowered after reading this book...I also want to thank you for creating a character like D'Andra who was so real and relatable to anyone who has ever struggled with their weight....It was great that you discussed real topics that are revelant in today's household (Health Issues, Paternity, Divorce, Adultry, Sibling Jealousy, Parent Favoritism, etc)....You opened the door for dialogue on so many subjects that are just not openly discussed....I also want to say THANK YOU for addressing the issues of becoming HEALTHY and not just losing weight....You allowed D'Andra to have her own voice and you supplied great data that did not consist of fad diets and unrealistic goals....I just loved this book and could not put it down until I completed it....It was great to read about a fuller-figure woman getting some romance and love and it was done oh so tastefully....We need more storylines like this one, so please write some more because I'll be waiting!!!!

Plus size D'Andra Smalls is about to talk herself from going in the gym when personal trainer, Night Jujuan Simmons overhears her and talks her to giving it a chance. He's drawn to her but thinks it's because she would be a great model of before and after for the opening of his own gym. They have a very nice story that unfolds from friendship to lovers with humor, family drama and old exes thrown in. What I like about this author is, the men are strong and know who and what they want out of life and set out to accomplish that. Eventhough ex's try to come in and start trouble, they're not swayed. There's never chapter after chaper of misunderstandings and the women are not so insecure that they can be pushed out of the picture. There's no major secrets that could destroy the whole relationship until they're put together almost mysterioulsy at the end. I really enjoy reading Zuri's books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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 and read the book.

This is my first read from Ms.Zuri Day and it was better than I expected.. When you read the summation on the book it give's you the impression that this is a overweight girl who gets the man but it is so much more than that.

The character's are true to life which makes it more realistic because of the many different issues that was brought to the forefront such as paternity issues, sibling rivalry, love, low self-esteem.

You found that this young lady D'Andra was stronger than she gave herself credit for. It was AWESOME that she wanted to lose weight for health reasons and not to get a man...but overweight or in shape..The man saw virtue in her that can't be bought. I think this book sheds the light on when it comes to choosing someone for yourself that one should look past the cosmetics of a person because pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside can cause a world of heartache, pain, and it can be a waste of time...

Zuri Day is a hopeful romantic. She believes in happy endings, half-full glasses and dreams coming true. That's why she's thrilled to now contribute to the genre she's read since the age of thirteen, after sneaking into her older sister's Harlequin collection and getting hooked on "happily ever after." When not writing, Zuri still loves to snuggle up next to a good storyline, whip up delicious vegetarian cuisine, travel to exotic locations or entertain friends and family between her native Jamaica and southern CA, where she hangs out with BFF Lutishia Lovely. She also loves to hear from readers, and can be reached via her website, Zuriday.com.
