Publisher's Summary

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 32. 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?

Love, Love, Love This One!

Other than LOVING the title, the characters were warm and seemingly real. Real interesting, real funny and real. This is the best "what if..." kinda book that stays awhile after you've read/listen to it. I had slacked off on my exercising but while reading this I jumped back into it and lost a good 10lbs along with the main character. I am glad that the image that the main character is left with is a good one. We are what we are and no matter how much we might exercise no one will be what someone else is and its okay. I love how the best lesson from this book is BE YOU, be the BEST YOU! It doesn't matter what size you are as long as you are YOU and that is just fine.

Full of Humor and Life Lessons!

What did you love best about Big Girl Panties?

Loved the humor and wit as well as being a lesson for us all. Both of the main characters was able to learn from one another.

What other book might you compare Big Girl Panties to and why?

Jennifer Weiner's books (have read them all). Heavy girl with a great personality, witty, and gets her man.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Holly connects with Chase/Amaada (Logan's friends) and fits in and finds her new BFF.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Its not over until the fat lady sings

Any additional comments?

I look forward to reading more this author and Katie was excellent (wish she were reading more of the audible books).

Predictable & Unrealistic. Syrupy Sweet.

What did you love best about Big Girl Panties?

What I liked best is the heroine is not your typical model beauty.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predicted it in Chapter 3.

What does Katie Schorr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Logan finally 'got it'.

A bit different than expected

Would you consider the audio edition of Big Girl Panties to be better than the print version?

Can't say, as I have not read the book, just listened to the audio verison

If you’ve listened to books by Stephanie Evanovich before, how does this one compare?

Not exactly what I have come to expect from Evanovich. Far to "romancey" and not near enouch comedy & quirky characters for me.

What does Katie Schorr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice is nice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't think it really rates a film version.

Any additional comments?

Just not my cup of tea, I guess

Not What I Expected

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This was like a cheap romance novel.

What was most disappointing about Stephanie Evanovich’s story?

The story was trite and predictable.

Would you be willing to try another one of Katie Schorr’s performances?

Yes.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Big Girl Panties?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

None

Very Disappointed

Not at all what I thought it would be. Friends raved about other works by this author so I thought I’d give her a try. This was Incredibly shallow and more explicit than I’d been told most of her novels were like.

Regret spending a credit on this one.

Great book, great message, hard to put down

I am normally too lazy to write reviews but I felt compelled to write this one. I listen to a ton of audible books while I drive and while I sew. This book had all of my required elements of an enjoyable book because I cared about the characters and I found it very difficult to stop listening. This book had laugh out loud funny parts and warm fuzzy sweet parts as well. It was enjoyable to watch the main characters grow on the inside as Holly became more fit and lost weight. As someone who’s always struggled with weight and with lose last few lbs I felt like the author was reading my mind when she described some of Holly’s feelings. This book has such a nice message and was entertaining as well. I rarely listen to things twice (except for Harry Potter) but I would consider listening to this again down the road
