As always when I pick up a book by a new author I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with this addition to my library.
Trapper Del rio is a very popular television newscaster about to give his career a twist. Having signed up to embed in a deployment, reporting on conditions overseas he is about to do some extensive training to get in shape.
Jessica runs the juice/smoothie bar at TFA Training Center. This is not your typical gym, the trainers here cater to the elite helping each client meet a specific goal in a set amount of time. There are rules about client/employee relationships, Jessica now has a problem as the one celebrity on the planet she has a crush on begins his training.
Now Jessica doesn't get fired for fangirling and the comedy of errors as these two begin dating is fun and sexy. The challenges of dating a well known person combined with Jessica's common sense lead to an intense beginning of a relationship.
I laughed and cried and held my breath as this tale unfolds.
I also fell in love with a bunch of characters here, I hope this continues into a series.
The story centers around Trapper, a news reporter with a jaded past who needs to get in shape to travel to a war zone for a journalism project, and Jessica, a thick (she's not fat, she's thick) woman who works at the Smoothie Bar in the gym Trapper attends.
The story starts with their meet-cute, where Jessica is so starstruck she's nearly speechless. Right off the bat I liked her. She's intelligent, witty, and extremely realistic. She doesn't let her weight bring her down, either. Despite heading into her forties, she's portrayed as a sexy, vivacious, spunky female lead. As someone who is of a similar body type, I loved seeing a woman like her as a sexy heroine and think that other authors should follow suit.
Without giving too much away, think of this book as a Hallmark movie with sex. There's instant attraction (but NOT insta-love, thankfully), cute banter, first dates, and extremely emotional blow-ups. At one point, I had tears in my eyes and was worried for one character's survival rate.
The secondary characters are also something to talk about. Trapper's so-called "friend" needed a good beating, but his other friend who owns a restaurant was really likable. Rava, a trainer and friend of Jessica's, was by far my favorite character. I really, really want a spin-off with her!
All in all, this was a great book with hot sex, deep emotions, great characters, and tackles body-image issues in a profound, very realistic way. Jenn Nixon has a real winner here, and one of the best romances I've read in a while.
