Review: Fat Girl Begone by: D.E. Haggerty

Description:

I’m a total mess. My boyfriend dumped me – get this – because I diet too much. Not because I’m fat, mind you. Of course, this spurs me into the diet-fitness-revenge-plan of the century, which leads me to the gym and a scorching hot personal trainer. I even manage to make some cool new friends, including a millionaire if you can believe it. Things are looking up! Naturally, that’s the moment my ex decides he wants me back, the personal trainer asks me out, and my millionaire male buddy decides to throw his hat in the ring. But that’s not enough drama. No, not for me. Because I’ve also lost my job and decided to start my own business. Just call me Ms. Drama.

Warning: Bad language, bumpy roads, and embarrassing moments ahead. But there’s also more than a bit of romance and even, if we’re lucky, love. Fingers crossed.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Everly whose boyfriend Josh broke up with her because she diets too much and apparently doesn't appreciate herself enough so with the help of her best friend Blaze Everly decides to join a gym loose weight and show the looser ex-boyfriend what he's missing.  What Everly didn't count on is a group of women who are part of Everly's Zumba class to become her new girlfriends that help life her up through her journey.  From buying clothes to going on clubbing binging.  They are definitely a great and wonderful group of women. 

First guy to show interest in Everly is her personal trainer Gabe who asks her out and Everly takes him seriously not realizing until it's too late that Gabe is a big ole player.  Everly's job also takes a new turn when she looses her job because she won't buy in at the ridiculous rate and can't keep her current job so with the help of a friend Carter she decides to take the plunge and start her own business.  Of course with Carter there is more than meets the eye.  How will Everly deal with everything that is Carter?  Will she run away or take the plunge? 

I loved this series and the other series by this author I read the skinny baker series.  It really pulls you in and has you hooked.  You learn so much about the characters created and see they have flaws in one way or another.  This one didn't disappoint at all.  Everly struggles with self image and getting control of her choices and it's amazing to see how much she changes in the book and how I don't think she couldn't do it without her fabulous network of friends.  They lift her up and keep her going even when going seems impossible!  Can't wait to see what is next for this author!
