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?

A must read!!

From the first few pages I was hooked! There was such a good story line I felt like I was emotionally involved from the start. Every chapter left me wanting to hear more and that to me is what makes a good book!

LOL & Heart Wrenching All In One

I loved Holly's slow transformation and her determination. Logan's uneasiness with his true feelings for Holly worried me and kept me listening. Loved, loved loved Chase and Amanda.

Great Chick Lit with just a touch of Bodice Ripper

Would you listen to Big Girl Panties again? Why?

Yes, I would listen again! I'm sure I missed something. Besides, the story and main character struck a chord with me. I'm sure it might with several of the female readers out there in Audibleland.
There are a few salaciously steamy parts that took me by surprise. The whole book was a pleasant surprise!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Honestly, my favorite "character" was the COUPLE, consisting of Holly and Logan. It was gratifying to watch each of them slowly and painfully interact and grow, day by day.

What about Katie Schorr’s performance did you like?

Katie Schorr nailed it! She handled both female and male voices easily without becoming ridiculous or grating. She was so consistent, it sounded as though she read the entire book in one take. Her voice was pleasant and melodic and she was able pronounce ALL the words correctly!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh several times and teared up a few, too. I didn't want a gut-wrenching read when I chose this book, and it wasn't. I was, however, emotionally invested all the way through.

Any additional comments?

Oddly enough, this was my first Stephanie Evanovitch book. It won't be my last. :)

I love this so much.

I loved this story. I loved the audio book reader and I wish there was more to this series more than I wish for anything else.
