Some of you have been with me since before book one (Heard It All Before) hit and bless your hearts, you've struggled through each and every one of these. Here we are at Book Five already! I wanted to name this one "The Curvy Girl Ex-Boyfriend Struggle Is Real" but my publishing house thought that crowded the cover a wee bit.
The small town of Belle Haven, Louisiana, is still
struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill, and
its residents will do whatever it takes to get it back on its feet. So when
local English teacher Carissa Melody Wayne is asked to appear on the
weight-loss reality show Losing to Win, she agrees. She doesn't realize that
others from her past will be joining her, including her high school nemesis, an
acquaintance who's been nursing a long-time crush on her—and most shocking of all,
Carissa's ex-fiancé, former NFL star Malachi Knight.
As Carissa's group is split into pairs to compete in a
series of challenges, she finds herself at the mercy of the chaotic Hollywood
crew and cast members, and her own unfinished business. Soon enough, she
discovers that her biggest challenge will be deciding what's really important
to her, what she's willing to do to win—and how to do it with cameras following
Let's start by saying if my family ever nominated me for a weight loss reality show and I found out about it on live TV? Hell. To. Pay. And that's just the first chapter.
Feel free to let me know what you think of this one and if you would be so kind as to rate it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads? Awesomeness...
