Tuesday Review of Fat Chances by J.S. Wilsoncroft
(posted on Amazon.com)
Great Beach Read,
May 24, 2012
This review is from: Fat Chances (Kindle Edition)Annie is about to give up on life. She wants nothing more than to finish her senior year and run from town. She has had it with the perfect bodies, the mindless chatter and the escapades of her "chatty" twin sister. All she sees is a fat girl in the mirror, surrounded by thousands of skinny people. No one could have worse self esteem than Annie. (Well OK, I did in high school and still fall prey to it now.) She has to learn to love herself before she can learn to love anyone else.
Enter Cory the super hot Zumba instructor. Cory comes to town and happens to teach the Zumba class Annie's sister drags her too. And for some reason, Cory falls for Annie. What follows is a look at what happens when body types get overlooked, people follow their hearts, and love is given a chance. Annie gives Cory every reason to walk the other way. She yells at him, misjudges his motives and tries to push him away. But Cory keeps coming back, until he manages to sell Annie on the fact his feelings are genuine and she needs to give him a chance. ( I was actually surprised he did keep coming back. Guys just don't come as sweet and understanding as Cory.) Once again J.S.Wilsoncroft has given me a book I devoured in no time. Her female characters are real and imperfect and they always get the hot looking guy. I was left wishing that Cory could come out of the pages of the book. At times I felt he was too good to be true. And maybe he is. But this is a romance novel and Wilsoncroft writes them to please. And please it does. She is becoming the master of feel good, heart felt romance. ( And her love scenes.. well they are really coming into their own!) And everyone else better watch out. I absolutely adored this book.
Beach season is coming up and I can think of no better book to sit on the beach with. I am left waiting for her next release with eagerness. Wishing for my own Cory to show up!
