Two things are off the menu: straight men and delicious food.
I have no idea what to expect when I return to my hometown to help renovate the family house. Growing up, I wasn’t exactly an athletic kid. Still, it turns out that Winchester has a warm welcome for me, and his name is Carter.
But thinking about love would be a lot easier if I weren’t so worried about my weight.
My homecoming starts with a broken-down car just as I arrive, and of course Carter is the first person to drive by. He’s even fitter and sexier than when I left.
I thought those piercing eyes were only for the ladies, but I was wrong. Oh so wrong. We want each other, but I’m not sure if I deserve a guy like Carter. Maybe it’s time to show him what my body can really do.
I might be cutting calories, but Carter’s one indulgence I can’t refuse.
Mark thinks he needs to slim down, but I’d rather see him strip down.
I missed my chance in high school, and I never thought I’d see Mark again. But he’s back in town and looking better than ever. When I give his car a jump, sparks fly, and he’s even more charming than I remember.
As luck would have it, I’m the contractor renovating his grandma’s house, which means we’ll be seeing a lot of each other. And I can’t hide my excitement. I want Mark, and I’m not letting labels get in the way of that.
He’s the one who got away. I want to give him the romance we missed out on in high school.
But Mark is holding back. I like him at any weight, yet he’s determined to change himself. His dedication makes me swoon, but I want him to know that I find him sexy no matter what.
Mark says he wants a workout partner, and I’m hoping that clothing is optional.
Weight For Love is another wonderful book by Jason Collins.
Mark returns to his hometown but can't forget all the bullying and taunts he endured during his high school years. Carter remembers Mark from school and is immediately smitten with him.
Mark has a whole lot of hang-ups about his weight though, and can't understand why Carter would even look at him twice, let alone be attracted to him.
What follows is a fantastic journey of one realizing they are more than their body type and their weight. One is also more that what the bullies think of you.
With Carter's help, Mark can grow in his self worth and accept love into his life.
I find Weight For Love to be an incredible story with a great message. I highly recommend it!
