Elsa Quinn has been bullied for being fat all her life. On the start of her new year of school, she makes a decision. She is going to lose weight. Elsa joins a gym out of town to ensure it’s top secret.
Noah Stewart lives for exercise. When he wants to relax, he works out, pumps weights, and runs to clear his head. After an embarrassing scene by his crazed ex, Noah decides to exercise in a gym a town over. When he meets Elsa, it seems too good to be true. He can’t let her out of his life when he knows he can help her—even though she’s already perfect to him. Striking up a deal, he’ll help Elsa get in shape, and in return she will keep his new gym a secret.
Day after day, week after week, it’s hard for Noah to not see how beautiful Elsa is. He’s struggling to keep his hands to himself, and when he finally claims her, he doesn’t want to keep it a secret. Noah wants the world to know Elsa belongs to him.
What will happen when their peers find out? Will Elsa be too scared to stay with Noah? Will he let her go when he sees what his ex does to her?
OK, shit was this book BAD. The characters were 18 year olds, but spoke like a bunch of 14 year olds. Which made the one lackluster sex scene rather awkward. Not to mention Noah at just 18 was a man-whore, sleeping with girls AND women?? When Elsa and him go to have sex for the first time he mentions it’s been awhile since he had sex with anyone. So I guess he started man-whoring at an early age??
Everything about this book was awful, the writing, the plot, the stupid mean girl characters. The whole “I LOVE YOU will you MARRY ME” at 18, and the epilogue was eye roll worthy.
BAD BAD BAD did I mention it was BAD.
Side Note: I assume costume is British for bathingsuit, otherwise I am ALL sorts of confused on why he wanted her dressed like a clown for swimming. *lol*
