Finally getting the chance to fix this review.

I really wanted to read this book because of it being a plus size character. As a plus size woman myself I like to read about women in my size or smaller it makes the book more realistic in my mind even though I know it's fiction.
I really enjoyed the story I'm glad is a happily ever after. Her girlfriends were supportive and judgmental. Like most girlfriends are. One of the down points for me in this book was how she hated herself or felt really low of herself because she was fat but then when she lost the weight it was like all her problems just disappeared.
To me that's not realistic, even in fiction in my opinion. I think The author could have shown maybe more of her struggles of losing the weight how she kind of overcame some of her obstacles that maybe made her gain the weight in the first place. But other than that I really enjoyed this book it showed that love can stand the test of time even when you May not have thought you were in love in the first place.

Definitely worth reading through I know there are some parts that kind of mess you up and make you not want to finish it but hang in there it's a really good book.

Now I'm off to read the second book in the series because I love Katie and I hope she gets her happily ever after.

Suspend Disbelief and it Works

This is a lighthearted contemporary romance, which has a few unbelievable moments, but is still really good over all. I won't give any spoilers, but the characters can be annoying at times, but if you are looking for something light and distracting, then it fits the bill. I enjoyed it enough to get book 2 which I also enjoyed, maybe more then this one. I will get book three when it comes out as well. If you as looking for something great- maybe take a pass- but if you want light, fun romance to fill some time then I recommend it.
