Publisher Description

Years after fleeing small-town Springvale, Illinois, Deanna Chase has picked up the pieces of her shattered heart and built a new life for herself as a child advocacy lawyer. Her food addiction is quasi under control, her secrets are buried, and she has even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body. Until…

Micah Peters—the very sexy and now famous man she fled— walks through her office door and sends Dee reeling. His demand that she help a young boy caught in a custody battle will reunite her with the past she left behind.

Torn between duty and self-preservation, Dee isn’t easy to convince. But when obligation wins, the former lovers get more than they bargained for—a searing passion that burns hotter than ever and startling revelations about what really happened the fateful night she left.

Will the truth set Dee free to love again? Or will past hurts and lingering insecurities destine her to walk away from her heart again, this time for good?

FAT GIRL is the first book in this provocative two-part series about love and self-acceptance.

Not bad but not great , just ok

I had high expectations for this book and it wasn’t terrible it just wasn’t great. It was ok. I felt a lot of it was dragged out and repetitive. There were whole chapters with the same repetitive dialogue being repeated about their regrets, the past .... oh my lord the angst. I thought the supporting characters were predictable and safe. Nothing you haven’t read before. No quirky or witty stand out charters . I found Dee lacking as a protagonist. She came across as whining , weak and repetitive and very woe is me. You can say that of all the characters. I read a lot and I’m for sure picky so maybe what’s just ok to me will be great to someone else. Like I said it wasn’t bad just not great.

This was one HOT, emotional, and all-around EXCELLENT contemporary romance!

This was one HOT, emotional, and all-around EXCELLENT contemporary romance!

Dee and Mick are opposites in many ways, especially in the physical sense. He was named the Sexiest Man Alive by a magazine, and she...well, not so much. Yet, in spite of this glaring difference between them and the many obstacles constantly in their way, the love that Dee and Mick have for each other never dies. It's a truly touching story to read. The love expressed between Dee and Mick is SO endearing and so believable. I was sincerely rooting for them to end up together and happy.

Leigh did an excellent job writing some HOT love scenes, but she made sure to keep "love" the central theme.

The mystery of the past happenings between Dee and Mick are revealed slowly, and it's mostly done via flashbacks, which gives an entirely different and unique perspective. I liked this idea a lot, and felt that it gave me a much better understanding of the characters, and I developed more of an affinity for them as well.

The story changes from his point of view to hers and back again, and the writing throughout evoked such emotions that I almost felt as if these were my good friends telling me their story! I was almost brought to teas, but not always in a sad way. I felt SO much throughout this book, and I could not put it down!

While this book is part 1 of 2, I was very satisfied with the ending of this segment. Don't get me wrong; I will ABSOLUTELY read the next book, but I wouldn't necessarily classify this as a "cliffhanger," inasmuch as I would classify it as a story that could only keep getting better as more loose ends get tied up.

The topic of body image and self-acceptance appear to be very important to Leigh Carron, and she encourages women to accept themselves as they are, which is very refreshing.

Can’t wait for the next book!!!
