Today I am super excited to be part of the Tasty Virtual Book Tour for Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich.
I got to meet Stephanie last year the Harper Collins party during BEA.
TITLE: Big Girl Panties
AUTHOR: Stephanie Evanovich
PUB DATE: June 2013 (hardcover) January 2014 (trade-paperback)
PUBLISHER: Harper Collins Publishers
I purchased the book when it came out last year and I was also sent a copy from Harper Collins.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In BIG GIRL PANTIES, Evanovich introduces readers to Holly Brennan—a 32-year old grieving widow in need of a change. Having spent too much time mired in sadness and grief-eating, Holly heads out of town to settle her husband’s estate and try to move on. Enter Logan Montgomery—a personal trainer to the country’s most famous professional athletes who also happens to be sitting next to her on the flight home.
Holly’s mortified by the way she’s squeezed into the airplane seat, but as they chat, Logan quickly realizes she has a sharp wit and keen insight—a welcome change from the sexy but superficial women he usually dates. When he impulsively offers to train her at his private gym, Holly surprises even herself and agrees.
Holly discovers she’s a natural athlete, and as her fitness level increases, so does a new found confidence. When Logan finally introduces Holly to his best friends, baseball superstar Chase Walker and his wife Amanda (a feisty curvy woman herself), they instantly see what Logan doesn’t; Holly is knockout. As their smoldering attraction starts to spark in earnest, Holly and Logan will have to decide if their love is for real…or just about looks.
BIG GIRL PANTIES is a fun, sexy, smart, and exceptionally saucy romp—a must-have book for the summer and a debut not to be missed.
Sadly it sat on my shelf for some time before I finally got into and after reading it I was disappointed I didn’t read it sooner because I devored that book pretty quickly. This was the fast read of 2014 for me. It was literally that good that I couldn’t put the book down.
I have to say that I love the newer cover much more then the original one. What do you think?
Okay lets get into the review shall we. This is Stephanie’s debut novel and she has a sequel coming out called The Sweet Spot. It will be out July 2014 and it will be about two of the characters from this book, Amanda and Chase. Which I am excited about because I would love to hear their story.
As the story progresses we learn that Holly is a young widow and has used food to comfort herself from the pain and lose of her husband. Logan is a personal trainer who works with some of the best in the sports world. When they leave the airport Logan offers to work with Holly and surprisingly enough she accepts. I was hoping she would and she did and never backed out once from their sessions.
I loved that towards the end of the book Logan realized that he really did love her and how he stopped at nothing to get her back and that no matter what she looks like he liked her for who she was.
