I finished this book earlier today. Omg I just loved everything about this! I want to read it again!

It’s hard being successful on ig and especially on fitness/health side. I totally watch tons of videos on there. But our culture expects a certain body type as an ideal. I’ve never gotten there healthily or stayed but I do love working out and I need to add it back into my daily routine. And don’t get me started on BMI🙄

Crystal Chen is a biracial curvy fitness influencer and personal trainer. Her platform is for women who want to feel better about themselves and gain confidence and strength.

As she’s working out at her gym one day a new Adonis type steals her machine and doesn’t give it back. It is on from there! You don’t do that, lol. 

I love their chemistry and the real life relationship feels as they navigate family matters and gym time and feelings. The confessions about what they thought when they first met, 😊😊 and that changing room scene🥵🥵

There is such a strong message about fat shaming and fat phobia in our culture in this book too. The “he’s too good for her cause he has a six pack” is so NOT true and we need to stop judging couples based off body type and looks. Those things fade anyway and don’t you want your forever person to want you for more than your looks but your mind and soul and personality, js.

⚠️ PSA: Dont read comments from trolls, they aren’t worth the energy. Also, if you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face don’t comment it.

❓ Do you exercise? I haven’t been good. But I was walking daily.

✨I just saw a coworker I haven’t seen in two years and she said I looked like I lost a lot of weight but she had to check to make sure I still had my booty 😂😂 that thing won’t go away!

Thank you berkleypub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

Synopsis:

A gym nemesis pushes a fitness influencer to the max in Amy Lea’s steamy debut romantic comedy.

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.
