This book was an inspirational read. Maxine is dealing with major self-esteem issues about her weight and Antony is dealing with a lot of guilt and resentment. Together these two seem to find happiness within. Antony is a very sweet and romantic type of guy. Maxine is very shy and self-conscious. Together they fit. As Carmine would say “The right fit is divine, my love. It molds so perfectly, it feels like you’re wearing nothing.”
I laughed. I cried. My heart melted. This book is such a wonderful read. It has amazing characters and a wonderful and meaningful plot. It really reaches deep down into your soul. The book flows very smooth and is never rushed. There are so many emotions to feel. The scenes between Max and Antony are explosive. The other characters are interesting and entertaining. Overall this book is amazing. A real feel good romance.
