Description
Alison Bliss shares her smart, sexy, contemporary voice in this new rom-com about a curvaceous heroine falling for her personal trainer, and Booklist raves that "fans of Jennifer Weiner will enjoy Bliss."
The course of true love was never supposed to start on a stair climber…
 
Preslee Owens has never worked out in a gym before. Like truly never. Until today. As she struggles to stay upright on the stair climber, she accidentally broadcasts a vlog that lets complete strangers—and even worse, people in her own small town—witness the hilarious start to her fitness journey. To her surprise and mortification, viewers love it.
 
The positive reaction leaves Preslee with no choice but to return—and the discovery that her unrequited crush, Josh, works out in the same gym is a big bonus. It also helps that her new personal trainer is making sure she doesn’t kill herself in the process. In fact, Adam has even offered to pretend to be her boyfriend to help make Josh a little jealous.
 
Having Adam cheering her on brings out a strength and confidence Preslee barely recognizes in herself. And soon she’s enjoying being his fake girlfriend waaay too much. But will her newfound courage allow her to face her biggest fear yet and seize the life she truly wants?

        December 13, 2021
        Pairing a plus-size heroine with a hunky personal trainer who thinks she’s ravishingly beautiful whether she loses an ounce or not, Bliss’s heartwarming fourth Perfect Fit rom-com (after More to Love) proves that “sexy isn’t a size.” Antiques dealer Preslee Owens has just been told she’s prediabetic and musters up the courage to enter Granite, Tex.’s only gym, the Body Shop. Though she’s convinced she’ll be mocked, owner Adam Caldwell is instantly attracted to her. Unaware of Preslee’s insecurities, Adam makes an innocent bet with his best friend, Kurt, about whether he’ll be able to help Preslee reach her fitness goals. As they begin training and grow closer, he realizes how much this action could potentially hurt her—but it’s too late, and after Preslee learns about the bet, Adam faces an uphill battle to prove his feelings for her are true. Bliss makes Preslee’s body image issues both nuanced and instantly recognizable, and readers who’ve dealt with similar insecurities will feel seen. A heart-wrenching subplot about her search for her birth mother will further cement readers’ desire to see her achieve the love she deserves. Luckily, an uncommonly sensitive hero is on hand to provide support. This smart, tender rom-com will linger long in readers’ minds. Agent: Andrea Somberg, Harvey Klinger.
