Funny and sweet and so very real; plus plenty of hot sex with hunky guys. This story goes through a woman’s transformation into someone she never expected. Along the way she deals with weight issues, self esteem issues, her first kiss as well as her first relationship. Though the trip can get bumpy, this trip is worth going on with Shelly. My attention was grabbed almost immediately and I couldn’t put this book down until I was finished. I could relate with Shelly, at times I wanted to be Shelly and I always was cheering for Shelly. But, this story isn’t just about Shelly because two guys are there too and they have their own awakenings. Who knew getting in shape could be so much fun?
This is another fantastic story about Mari Carr’s Wine Girls. Each book can be read without having read any of the others as each is unique but the storylines do cross occasionally. They all start out with New Year’s resolutions and Shelly decides that she’s going to get in shape. At least, that’s what she tells the other women. In reality, Shelly also would like to change her love life. Co-worker Christian has been lusting after Shelly for a while but she doesn’t seem to get his subtle hints. He’s decided to go for broke and go after her. As part of her lose weight program, Shelly is taking kickboxing and has gotten her instructor, Lance’s attention. Christian and Lance were best friends in high school and quickly resume that friendship even though both of them are attracted and want the same girl. The two men come up with a solution but will Shelly be willing to try it?
Two’s company. Three is perfection.
Shelly MacIsaac has pretty much given up all hope. Hope that she’ll lose weight, that she’ll find any excitement in life, that there will ever be any man in her bed besides Barney, her cat.
When her friend Zoey suggests the wine girls come up with resolutions for the New Year, Shelly latches onto the one everyone expects her to choose—the tried-and-true commitment to go on a diet and get into shape. Deep inside, however, Shelly knows she needs to change a lot more than just her physical appearance.
After a year licking his wounds over a broken romance, Christian is through. He’s been quietly lusting after Shelly at work, and he’s not wasting any more time. There’s something about her that makes him believe she’s the one. Unfortunately, Shelly’s kickboxing instructor, Lance—Christian’s best friend—has set his sights on the sweet blonde as well.
Instead of pistols at dawn, the two friends come up with a deliciously erotic answer to their shared dilemma—if the shy beauty will accept their racy proposal.
Warning: There is a chance this story will encourage you to go on a diet and begin an intense exercise regime. After all, flavored body lube is low cal, right? And sex is a great way to burn calories.
