Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the award-winning author of Dead Broke and Bedroom Bully comes a new sizzling adventure featuring three sexy thirtysomethings who are single and ready to mingle—but weighed down with insecurities that could tip any scale.

Lets face it; no one is 100% satisfied with their figures— everyone has a little extra baby fat or trouble spot they wish some magic trick could make disappear. In Love Handles, the three main characters all find themselves hoping that change is just a matter of saying “Abracadabra,” but they all find out when love is true it can handle anything.

After catching her man in the act with another woman, Chrisette is newly single with a newborn baby to care for. Haunted by the image of her exs model-skinny mistress, shes determined to lose her baby weight, and then some. After several unsuccessful (but hilarious) attempts, she joins a gym and is shocked when she catches the attention of her svelte, suave personal trainer. Rhea has no trouble channeling her inner sex goddess over email, but when her long-distance flirtation with Trent causes him to book an impromptu trip to meet her in person, Rhea panics. Terrence, a divorced former college football player turned homicide detective, has been big and tall all his life. Now, in his mid-thirties he had given up trying to look like the lineman he was in college. Weight issues, a health scare, and tragedy close to home sends his life completely offtrack—but an encounter with an unlikely party forces him to make a change in the right direction.

Engaging and fast-paced, Love Handles addresses the universal topic of body image, and shows that true beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
