(Cipher Office #1)
by M.E. Carter
Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.
Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family – even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.
She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy – mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.
Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.
In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?
Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.
4 Smartypants Romance Stars on Goodreads
Weight Expectations by M.E. Carter, my first Smartypants book and my first book by this author. Rian Thompson’s always had issues with her weight. A push from her doctor to take her health seriously and of course her sister’s upcoming wedding she decides to join the gym and eat healthy.
“My eyes widen, both in disbelief and possible terror at what “stretching” might entail. I ate a bean burrito for lunch. Does he not understand the kind of danger “stretching” might put everyone in?”
Rian is so like-ably, She’s witty, funny, smart and very entertaining. She is one kick ass plus-sized heroine. Although I loved Rian and could relate to her in many ways, I disliked Carlos from the get go. Not only was he on love with himself, but some of the things out of his mouth made me want to cringe on the regular
”I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I don’t want the shallow surface-level relationship with you. I want you to know me. And I want to know you. And I don’t know what to do with those feelings.”
I sailed through this book, the writing flowed and kept me intrigued throughout. Something that I was finding hard to get at the moment.
I’ll be looking into more Smartypants Romances in the future.
