Brie is a ballroom dancer/instructor who gained weight due to a thyroid issue. Unfortunately, her partner, Val, isn't very understanding of her health issues.He is verbally abusive and has a way of making her feel small and unworthy. This part of the story touched so close to home for me that I couldn't help continuing to read and hope for the best. Keith meets Brie anonymously for their one-night-stand but he sees something in her and wishes he had gotten her information.
Month's later the hockey season is back in full swing and Keith decides to attend a dance class with his teammate (who is using the class to build core strength). Surprise - guess who the teacher is! Thus begins their rocky relationship. He sees her as a beautiful, intelligent woman and she only can see the fat. Keith's kindness and patience are heartwarming.
As someone who has been through some of the things that Brie is facing I couldn't stop reading. I will admit, I did skim over some of the hockey parts but overall, the book was worth reading
In the previous books...I always wondered why Keith chose a big place like that to live in, in the first place. Or why he chose to live in that big mansion all alone, instead of renting out a room to one of his teammates. He never really had any real close friends or any of his family members come there to visit him. His teammates, yes.... but only when he was throwing a party. But he never seemed to have any family or friends just drop by to visit. I always thought that was sort of odd. I knew there was probably a good hidden story there just waiting to be told. And what a great story it was,too. Now after having read this book... I don't have to keep wondering, anymore. His back story was so heart-breaking. I felt so bad for him, I wanted to cry.
Brie is new to this whole cast of characters we've come to know and love, but I loved her right off the bat. She was a major ballroom dancer who is suddenly diagnosed with a severe thyroid problem that suddenly makes her weight go out of control, and it also had an affected her eyesight, too. Her ex-dancing partner/boyfriend was a real ass. He treated her so badly, and verbally abused her beyond belief. But that wasn't all. He goes and cheats on her, and then dumps her because of something that was completely out of her control. Needless to say; she's feeling pretty bad about herself, which makes her become very depressed.
I loved the way these two supported each other, and then subsequiently helped each other throughout their long drawn out healing process.
Off to read the next installment, and I can't wait to see what this series holds for all of us next!
The majority of this book is just pages and pages of explanations about nothing. There's so much unnecessary description about background nonsense. Save yourself some life and spend it reading a book that doesn't make you wish you could tear parts of your brain out to unread this drivel.
I have followed Ms. Gayle's profile on facebook and have got to know her a bit, thus I feel that this book was really written from experience. Brie's thoughts and beliefs were probably on a parallel to Ms. Gayle's and in all honesty I found this so touching.
