Health, eating, fitness
Body positivity and negativity
This contemporary romance offered a serious slice of themes to digest alongside the connection and romance between these two main characters. Britta was a bit of a hero to me, she mostly demonstrated a true love of her own body even though she fell off the wagon on occasion. We see some disordered eating alongside the positive in this story. Wes was her online fitness coach through an app but he crossed some lines.
I enjoyed the storyline for the first three quarters, it was easy to slip into and provided a couple to cheer for. I found the overall tone of the plot to be very body positive in all the ways and I appreciated how the author pitched this without any preach. It was about real, flawed and wonderful humans. I did struggle with the misunderstandings and miscommunications that came a bit later on but I pushed through for a great ending, which I got.
If you enjoyed this author’s previous book (like me), we do some some of those characters in the background which was a bonus.
Overall, this was enjoyable with a great depth to the plot.
Thank you to Piatkus for the eARC.
