BIG GIRL PANTIES: A STEPHANIE EVANOVICH PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
BIG GIRL PANTIES
BY STEPHANIE EVANOVICH

ABOUT THE BOOK:
A rollicking, sensuous, feel-good romantic comedy about a grieving young widow who decides to get in shape . . . and winds up getting her groove back—and a whole lot more!

Holly didn't expect to be a widow at thirty-two. She also didn't expect to be so big. After her husband's death, food was the one thing she could always count on. Now, those extra pounds make flying coach feel like medieval torture—especially when she's squished next to Logan Montgomery. A personal trainer to famous pro athletes, her seatmate is so hot that he makes Holly sweat in all the right (and so embarrassingly wrong!) places.

Though Holly doesn't make the grade on Logan's first-impression meter, he finds himself intrigued by her sharp wit and keen insights—a welcome change from the high-maintenance models he dates—so he impulsively offers to get her back in shape. A little skeptical but ready to make at least one positive change in her life, Holly agrees.

To Logan's (and her own) surprise, Holly turns out to be a natural in the gym, slimming down into a bona fide looker with killer curves—and a new kind of hunger. Before either of them can stop it, the easy intimacy of their training sessions leads to even more steamy workouts away from the gym.

Logan's best friends, professional baseball player Chase Walker and his wife, Amanda, see that this is more than a fling, even if Logan and Holly don't. But can a man whose whole life depends on looks commit himself to a woman who doesn't fit his ideal? Now that Holly's turning other men's heads, does she even need Logan anymore? Are they a couple built to last . . . or destined to fizzle?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Stephanie Evanovich is a full-fledged Jersey girl from Asbury Park who began writing fiction while waiting for her cues during countless community theater projects. She attended New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts, performed with several improvisational troupes, and acted in a few small-budget movies, all in preparation for the greatest job she ever had: raising her two sons. Now a full-time writer, she's an avid sports fan who holds a black belt in tae kwon do. For those of you wondering, Stephanie is the niece of bestselling author Janet Evanovich of the "Stephanie Plum" series.

PRAISE FOR BIG GIRL PANTIES:
“Evanovich’s incredibly entertaining debut mesmerizes with wit, heart, and intelligence . . . Quality writing, memorable characters, hot sex scenes, and an emotionally satisfying story add up to a marvelous gem.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Savvy, smart and sexy!”
— Susan Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of That Thing Called Love

“A page turner with real heart! This sexy tale will have you racing to your local gym-after you’ve finished racing through this charming, funny novel.”
— Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of Curvy Girls

“Evanovich’s debut effort is a funny, clever, and well-paced read.”
— Booklist

Hi! The storyline of this book sounds really great and sounds like I would enjoy reading. Anything that sounds like a romantic comedy movie ranks high with me. :)

This sounds like it explores, in an entertaining way, the difference between attraction and love.

I've heard good things overall about Big Girl Panties, so I think I'd like to give it a try. However, I've also heard it compared to both Weiner and Green, authors I've had uneven luck reading. We'll see!
Thanks!
