Book : Weight Expectations (Cipher Office, #1)
Author : M.E. Carter .
Genre : Fiction , Romance, Contemporary.
Rate : 4/5
Review in one word : Awesome.
This is one of the best books I’ve read last year that discussed Self-image, Weight Problems, Confidence, and Social acceptance in a great way, without any harmful ideas or stupid assumptions.
Author M.E. Carter surprised me throughout the book, with her beautiful, sarcastic, realistic, inspirational, heartbreaking and amazing Writing style.
Rian Thompson our heroine , beautiful , smart , successful , funny and strong Rian . Also, One of my favourite female characters.
The novel starts by Following Rian Journey towards ” getting healthy “ as she is suffering from Obesity. What I liked about the Author, her way of discussing this sensitive topic, she focused on ” Getting healthy ” rather than ” Losing weight and getting skinny”.
“Be healthy rather than Skinny “
On the other hand, Carlos Davies , Handsome, fashionable, Playboy, successful and sarcastic Carlos.
” Dammit , I’ve been Friend-zoned by my own convictions “
I have to admit, I wasn’t always a fan of Carlos throughout the book, there were scenes I hated him. On the other hand, there were scenes, I adored him, how he encouraged Rian, Believed in her and her abilities, admired her personality, changed and developed, was AMAZING.
I liked how the author changed many topics that are always the same for almost every romance novel, Such as :
The Friendship between Rian and Abel
Almost every romance author Make the male friend of the heroine ( homosexual ” not that there is anything wrong with that, I actually always like this character” ) or there won’t be any attraction or non-friendly thoughts about the hot friend , BUT , In this book, the friendship between Rian and Able was really cool, even though Able was hot and Rian at first felt attraction toward him . But, they ended up, great friends.
” Are you always this dramatic? ”
” Always,” I say without hesitation.
“Good. I like it. See you in thirty. ”
” It’s twenty -eight minutes now “
also, the age of the hero and heroine
I liked that Rian and Carlos were 37, 40, fascinating to read about them, not everyone should find love when they are in their 20s or 30s, Love is for everyone, no one should lose hope.
” But here she is, stepping out of her comfort zone to make a better life for herself. And damn if that doesn’t inspire me to do the same. “
All in all, If you like to read Romance novels with interesting topics, brilliant characters, and outstanding writing style, this is for you.
“Rian, Families aren’t perfect. People aren’t perfect. They are going to have flaws. “
Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.
Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family – even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.
She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy – mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.
Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.
In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?
Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post .
Until Next time,
Stay strong and change the world ,
