Jessica, the heroine, almost takes losing weight too far and endangers her health at one point before getting a healthy eating and exercise regimen.
Then when she was ready physically and mentally she dresses in sexy lingerie and goes to Chad's apartment and attempts to seduce him. Chad rejects her in a very cruel and humiliating way.
So instead of seeing him for the jerk he is and moving on, she gives her virginity to her personal trainer and continues to have sex with him while devising a plan to win Chads notice and affections.
Then at a charity function finds out Chad is engaged so hooks uup with a hunky fire Captain Doug. who the next day and several times thereafter wants to date her, but she keeps saying no but cannot come up with why she cannot not date him. She likes him, she lusts after him, but cannot date him. In the mean time good o l e Chad keeps treating her like dirt.
I just had a hard time with Jessica. I wanted to reach into the book and slap her silly.
Our hero of this story is Fire Captain Douglass Finley. He is recovering from a divorce. He has a tween aged girl. Captain Finley is also the boss of Jessica's former crush. He has some real trust issues, since his wife left him for a younger man that she has been cheating with while they were still married.
While I liked the relationship between the hero and heroine of this story. The baggage that they brought with them was a little much. There are relationship issues between Jessica and her current lover, her former crush and herself and her weight issues. More issues between Doug and his ex-wife and his inability to trust.
The real character that I liked in this story was the daughter. She was great character who didn't let her parents divorce get her down. I loved how Doug made sure to put his daughter front in his relationship.
This was a quick read. I think I read in just a few hours. I enjoyed it. I just wish there was more time spent on the relationship between Jessica and Doug and less on the baggage that accompanied them.
