It's All Things Bookish....
Because Life is short and there is so much to read, read fast!
The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.
But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.
That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.
I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date… unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!
Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what…
It's sweet, funny, and quite a romantic story. Lucy is an insecure woman. Although, she likes to pretend that she is happy in her skin the truth is that there are too many teenage memories that don't let her accept herself. Frankie has his own insecurities. He is the most kind-hearted man in town but he also happens to have a problem... he loves women, all of them. When one of his past conquests tells him that he is most definitely not a forever kind of guy he takes it to heart. He thinks this is the time to change his ways. That's when he decides to take an impromptu trip with Lucy. This way he would be helping her and also figuring out his next move.
Lucy on the other hands assumes that the reason Frankie is not worried about spending so much time with her is that he doesn't find her attractive. Nothing can be further from the truth though. Now on Frankie needs to do is make her understand what an amazingly attractive woman she is. The best way to do so is back in her hometown, her house, and her school reunion. Maybe Lucy will finally forget about all the bad times and move on. She is an independent and beautiful woman after all.
The more time they spend together the more they realize how much they like each other. Somehow they are a perfect couple. Their personalities compliment and they enjoy each others company. Now only if they could figure out how to remove past baggage they might be able to have a chance at HEA.
