“Curvy fitness influencer Crystal Chen built her career shattering gym stereotypes and mostly ignoring the trolls. After her recent breakup, she has little stamina left for men, instead finding solace in the gym – her place of power and positivity.

Enter firefighter Scott Ritchie, the smug new gym patron who routinely steals her favorite squat rack. Sparks fly as these ultra-competitive foes battle for gym domination. But after a series of escalating jabs, the last thing they expect is to run into each other at their grandparents’ engagement party.

In the lead up to their grandparents’ wedding, Crystal discovers there’s a soft heart under Scott’s muscled exterior. Bonding over family, fitness, and cheesy pick-up lines, she just might have found her swolemate. But when a photo of them goes viral, savage internet trolls put their budding relationship to the ultimate test of strength.” – Goodreads


Thank you to Netgalley, Berkley, and Amy Lea for the ARC!

I have been following Amy for years and have been SO excited to read her debut novel!

This book is SO good. It’s steamy, it’s funny, it’s relatable, and it has some really important topics that it addresses. It examines the need to shift from “body positive” to “body respectful” and “body accepting”, as we aren’t always going to be positive about our bodies 100% of the time, but that doesn’t mean we can disrespect them or be unaccepting of their power.

I thought this was really well done and would never have known it was a debut if I didn’t follow the ray of absolute sunshine that is Amy Lea!
