“You’re pretty, for a fat girl.”
That’s nothing Claire Howard hasn’t heard before, and there’s part of her that doesn’t care, that thinks it’s okay to love herself just the way she is. Then there’s that other voice in her head, the one that plays on a constant loop that gets louder whenever people scrutinize her dinner order, snicker when she needs a belt extender on a plane, and outright laugh when they see her with her the kind of man they don’t think fat girls deserve. It reminds her that existing while fat is the worst thing in the world. It’s worse than being ignorant, bigoted or cruel—at least according to society’s standards. Even when she has the attentions of two men who are the embodiment of fantasy.
But it’s not their love that matters, it’s her own. Fat is a brand that’s been seared into every aspect of her life—even her heart. Can Claire love herself enough to reach past the labels for her own happiness?

This book was wonderful. I really found a connection to the characters. They touch your heart you can feel their struggles, the lack of self worth, the struggle to find value in yourself is so powerful. I hope you help the other characters find the strength so to face their fears so that they can embrace who they and and find they that resides in all of us. Please continue this series. Keiran's character left me with a heartache for him. He is lost and can not see that he is more than just what resides in his pants. His story needs to be told also.
