Publisher's Summary

After being dumped by his long-term boyfriend for being overweight, Henry Beckett decides to make some drastic changes. In a vain attempt at getting his boyfriend back, Henry does the most absurdly frightening thing he can think of.
He joins a gym.
Reed Henske is a personal trainer who isn't sure he'll ever be ready to date again. He's sick of guys who are only interested in the perfect body image, never seeing him for who he really is.
As Reed tortures Henry with things like diet and exercise, Henry enamors Reed with recipes and laughter. As the friendship lines start to blur, Henry is convinced there's no way Thor-like Reed could ever be interested in a guy like him.
Reed just has to convince Henry that life isn't about reaching your ideal bodyweight. It's about finding your perfect counterweight.
Contains mature themes.

Gales of laughter!

I loved this book when I read it, but Joel Leslie brings the characters to life. His ability to change character voices and accents will never cease to amaze me.
Henry and Reed are perfect together. I can totally relate to not having a filter.

Surprised

I was really surprised by this book, I had passed by it so many times. Recently finishing a book narrated by the brilliant Joel Leslie I needed more of him. The story was great, funny, witty, sweet and I enjoyed the message the book sent. Henry found himself again, made good healthy choices - but for himself. Although he may have originally been pushed by someone else I liked the tone of the book - be who you are and comfortable within your own skin.

Lets talk about Joel Leslie ;)!!!! I am going to stalk his narrations, so talented - he puts so much emotion in his work, again I am swooning over him.

Very entertaining p, A much audible

I pre ordered this book, as I really enjoy the ebook. It was outstanding very enjoyable listening, but then this ebook is my favorite, Joel Leslie was as always fabulous, with his take on Henry and Reed, his voice for Henry's mum was very funny.
I don't think NR Walker has written a bad book, her characters are so very well written p, With Henry no filter, and Reeds quite demeanor, utter fantastic.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough, Glad I ordered it.

Love this story

Love this book, such a strong personality and feel good vibe. Also it was released at the right time for me when I too was mid weight-loss battle.

The narration; it's not an Australian voice actor but the main character Henry comes across well even if his Reed sounded a trifle odd.

I'd recommend it.

How Can I Not Give It 5 Stars?

Joel Leslie is the most amazing narrator, and team him with the talented N.R. Walker and you’ve got a winner every time.
Henry SO needed Reid in his life after being tossed aside by his partner of eight years for being fat and old. Reid believed in Henry right from the start. As his trainer, he showed Henry that he can achieve what he set out to do, get fitter and healthier and over time Henry started to believe in himself too.
Henry has inspired me too.
