All her life, Beth Denton battled both her weight and her controlling parents. And now that she's declared victory, she's looking for her prince charming....
Beth has always lived in her outgoing sister's shadow, plagued by her own insecurity about her body. It’s time for her to step out from the sidelines and experience what life has to offer - then she's laid off from her teaching job, and has to rely on her sister to get her a job at Danvers International.
Nick Merimon is gorgeous, wealthy, and a well-known playboy - just the sort of man Beth has always avoided. But even she can't deny the sparks that are flying between them. He could be just the man to show her what she's been missing all these years. And after they share one heart-stopping night together, she is surprised when it leads to a relationship.
But as their connection grows, and the realities of their romance begin to show, Beth will have to overcome both her own insecurities and her doubts about Nick's intentions if her newfound pleasures are to last forever....

Altgough it ended nicely as expected, all of this woman body issues were almost too much to take for so long. I understand injecting reality into the novel, but this went on too long for what should have been the more light-hearted romance. and also almost too much of the story came from the sisters point of view
they were real hypocrites, immature and truly irritating. after all they've been thru you would think they would be better than they are
I have read all the books in this series and seriously loved them. This one was good but to tell the truth the character of Beth really annoyed me at first. she improved with the story but man she was a real bitch at first. I liked Nick a lot, hard not to with that personality. But I did fell that he should have seriously toke a stronger stand with her. Because, really, NO man in his right mind would have put up with the crap she put him through in the very beginning. get real.
life is good
fun ,captive ,sweet
love her very excellent reader
hoeing writer with take us further with this group
The story was horrible. The main character was weak, whiny and the most annoying poor pity me I've ever heard in my life. I kept praying she would get hit by a bus or something to move the story along. I'm to fat, nobody likes me. Poor me. Everyone hates me. This went on the ENTIRE book. Seriously never hated someone so much in my life.
Considering the wide range of characters in the entire series she had to portray, I'm rather impressed.
I'm sorry but there is no person in their right mind that would make this story into a film. It's a 2 hour pity party, barely worthy to have been made into a book. The main character was beyond annoying. I hated her with every fiber of my being.
Don't waste your time or credit with this story unless you want to hear someone drone on for 7 hours about how fat they are and everyone hates them and how ugly she is and whatever else she was going on about. I get being insecure but I don't want to hear about it to the most extreme ever for 7 + hours.
Enthusiastic listener =)
Very "cute" series, enjoyable and a good summer beach listen.
Allyson Ryan does a decent job at narration.
Definitely worth a purchase.
Yes, the book was good to listen to but there were moments that I just wanted to fast forward by.
Maybe. I have listened to some of her books before but the female lead, Beth, was very annoying. The way she acted was ridiculous. She was very disrespectful of her relationship with Nick. She is exactly the type of woman I wouldnt like. How can someone go out on dates while sleeping with the same man for 6 months.
I dont think I have one.
No follow up book needed. I saw that a Book 4 is coming out for Declan and Ella's story.
I wanted to punch Beth so many times. I almost stopped listening after a while because Beth is a horrible female lead unless you are trying to show how a female SHOULD NOT handle situations.
