Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich is a rollicking and poignant romantic comedy about a young widow who decides to get in shape…and winds up getting her groove back–and a whole lot more! Holly Brennan used food to comfort herself through her husband’s illness and death.
Now she’s alone at age thirty-two. And she weighs more than she ever has. When fate throws her in the path of Logan Montgomery, personal trainer to pro athletes, and he offers to train her, Holly concludes it must be a sign. Much as she dreads the thought of working out, Holly knows she needs to put on her big girl panties and see if she can sweat out some of her grief. Soon, the easy intimacy and playful banter of their training sessions lead Logan and Holly to most intense and steamy workouts. But can Holly and Logan go the distance as a couple now that she’s met her goals–and other men are noticing?
This book proved to me that when it comes to love, size doesn’t matter, AT ALL. Hell, I dont even know why size and shapes always matter to most people. This book gave me a roller coaster ride of emotions from happiness, to kind of upset.
Obviously our main girl here, Holly, has issues. She weighs more than she should since the death of her husband. And she is so relatable, because I do stress eating whenever im overly stressed, tired or depressed.
The story of Holly and Logan takes us to that point of moving on over things that will never be ours anymore ( Holly’s husband), doing something better to help us move on (like exercise and weight loss), falling in love without so much looking over the other person’s weight or size and putting your big girl panties on in every situation.
I gave this book a good 4/5 stars and recommending it to everyone of different size so they could also put their big girl panties on. *wink*
Everyone remembers their first love.
Holly certainly remembers Alex. But she decided ten years ago that love wasn’t about mix tapes and seizing the moment – though she’s not exactly sure it’s about secret dates with your boss, either.
