Publisher's Summary

After being dumped by his long-term boyfriend for being overweight, Henry Beckett decides to make some drastic changes. In a vain attempt at getting his boyfriend back, Henry does the most absurdly frightening thing he can think of.

He joins a gym.

Reed Henske is a personal trainer who isn't sure he'll ever be ready to date again. He's sick of guys who are only interested in the perfect body image, never seeing him for who he really is.

As Reed tortures Henry with things like diet and exercise, Henry enamors Reed with recipes and laughter. As the friendship lines start to blur, Henry is convinced there's no way Thor-like Reed could ever be interested in a guy like him.

Reed just has to convince Henry that life isn't about reaching your ideal bodyweight. It's about finding your perfect counterweight.

Contains mature themes.

    "5 Stars for the narration!"

    Light-hearted story about a man getting his groove back after the end of an eight year relationship.

    Joel Leslie shines in his performance. The character voices are great, his timing with the humor is spot on, and the pacing was perfect. 5 Stars for the narration!!

    Henry's humorous outlook and how easily and completely he and Reed fit together make this a very sweet romance.

    Low angst, humorous romance with a sigh-inducing HEA.

    "Amazing author. Stupendous story. "

    N. R. Walker is my new favorite author. This is the fourth book I've read. Joel Leslie is a top notch narrator. scratch that. He is much better than top notch. He's two or three notches above that. Yes I know that doesn't make sense. You just take a listen and you'll see. Mark my words. I'm off to buy all the N R Walker books I can get my hands on, especially of Joel is the narrator.

    "Sheer brilliance"

    I already absolutely adored this book, and Joel Leslie's narration totally kicked it out of the ballpark in terms of adding to it's brilliance. His Henry is hilarious, from the self-depreciation through to his adoration of Reed, he translates NR Walker's wicked sense of humour into something that is warm, sweet and laugh out loud funny. Recommended!!!

    "Phenomenal Read!!!"

    This was an extraordinary read!!!! I'm just sorry it took me so long to pick it up or I should say listen to on audio. This was such a feel good I can't stop smiling read, Henry was a just a riot (and I loved the audible narrator Joel Leslie) and Reed was a true sweetheart. SIGH........*** I loved how Reed encouraged Henry and the shy side of Reed as well. Yes, thank God for some steamy parts as well!!!
    I cried happy tears at the end and Henry and Reed's friends made this read also, can't forget them.
    ;-D

    "Gales of laughter!"

    I loved this book when I read it, but Joel Leslie brings the characters to life. His ability to change character voices and accents will never cease to amaze me.
    Henry and Reed are perfect together. I can totally relate to not having a filter.

    "Very entertaining p, A much audible"

    I pre ordered this book, as I really enjoy the ebook. It was outstanding very enjoyable listening, but then this ebook is my favorite, Joel Leslie was as always fabulous, with his take on Henry and Reed, his voice for Henry's mum was very funny.
    I don't think NR Walker has written a bad book, her characters are so very well written p, With Henry no filter, and Reeds quite demeanor, utter fantastic.
    I cannot recommend this book highly enough, Glad I ordered it.
