Jess Colton, the hero in this book, is a flawed human being. Jess meets the heroine, Holly Harrison, in a stuck elevator in the upscale Seattle apartment building they both call home. Jess works to calm the panicky woman as he summons help from the apartment manager.
Holly is impressed with this gentle man. She looks through his size to the warm heart and begins to feel an attraction. She trusts him--but not with her secret--or secrets. No one knows them but her sister and her former boyfriend. And even he doesn't know the worst part of her secret.
Jess's overeating is hard to hide--his weight is too obvious. When he's around Holly, he restrains himself, but when she's not there, he cannot. The sweets call to him with a siren song that he can't resist.
Both of them have well-meaning families who try to "help" them. Jess's father and sister constantly berate him about his weight, offering not only criticism but way too many suggestions. Holly's sister constantly reminds her of past sins and that God couldn't possibly love her or forgive her. The problem is that both Jess and Holly believe what they're told.
It takes a deadly crisis to bring them both around. But I'm not going to tell you what it is--you'll have to buy the book yourself to find out what happens.
I was provided a free copy of this book by the author. The opinions and evaluations are my own.
Dental hygienist Holly Harrison is running from more than her past. Even handsome Jess Colton, a systems analyst, who makes her keep her promise to attend church if she survived the elevator, can’t force her into forgiving herself, let alone trust him – or God.
Overweight Jess uses food as a crutch, never dreaming Holly’s secret is close to his own. Compensating for stress, girlfriend and family issues, Jess had let himself overcompensate with an unhealthy lifestyle that only allows him to beat himself up. Will anything help he get out of this terribly self-destructive cycle?
When Jess’s preoccupation with food and its consolation threaten his livelihood, and Holly’s fears of revelation keep her prisoner from enjoying life to its fullest, these two souls turn to each other. But is love and faith enough to overcome their deepest doubts in themselves and each other?
Flawless is a wonderful story that lets readers explore our insecurities without the fears of getting burned or judged – exactly what’s needed in a fantasy world of twenty-something cuties, wounded widows, endless Amish, and prairie dust. Thank you, June!
With wonderful sensory images, the surprises keep unfolding in this delightful and refreshing romance of unlikely souls learning to love themselves as well as each other.
Jess struggles with more than food, and I love that his problems aren't taken care of in one chapter. June illustrates forgiveness and new beginnings, but also that no one can force us to choose to live free.
Holly has a past and the consequences are a daily part of her life. Jess's friendship helps her, but she's afraid to reveal her whole self to him. She sees people, even those closest to Jess, be cruel. Will her full disclosure push him away? Could they be more than friends? Can she ever forgive herself?
