I'll start by saying that this book had great promise of a story about finding love despite the lack of a six-pack, but unfortunately I found the execution to be sorely lacking in... well, almost everything. I cannot say anything about typos and spelling as I spotted no mistakes in that aspect BUT I must say that the overall story needs some more work. Maybe it's just me, but I felt that the hero Jeremy and his "insecurities" were just infuriating. Also, what was with his obsession with Ryan?
The following contains some spoilers, but I have to get this off my chest, so you've been warned.
Jeremy literally meets Ryan on a Friday, they have a lovely Saturday together with some behind the scenes lust, have a fight of sorts on a Sunday and when Ryan has to go out of town on business Jeremy decides to follow him there because he is very insecure about their "relationship". No-one said anything about a relationship, they just spent a night together! Then we discover that Ryan is going to move and all of a sudden it's 3 months later, Jeremy's lost 40 pounds (that's ca 18 kg) and he's still obsessed with what would Ryan think of him. For the life of me, I cannot understand WHY because they knew each other for less than a week. Some drama ensues and the guys finally meet again and they get a HFN... UGH!!!!
I think I would like the plot a bit more if Collins had at least made Ryan and Jeremy talk to each other or exchange e-mails or something for those three months Collins simply skips. Of course, it would help if Jeremy's inner voice wouldn't be all about "what does Ryan think about me and my weight?".
I do not recommend this book the way it currently is. If and when the author decides to make some changes, then maybe I'd dare to recommend it as the premise is actually pretty decent. So long read The Weight of it All by N.R. Walker instead. That book is awesome.
