Shelly made a decision that she wanted to lose weight in the new year. She has self esteem and body image issues that she has struggled with for many years. He friends encourage her not only with her resolution, but also to get out there and date as well. Shelly works with Christian who pursues her as well as his friend Lance who is her instructor at the health club. These friends decide to pursue her together which changes everything for Shelly.
I so loved Christian and Lance. They were sweet and encouraging and frankly hot as hell with Shelly. It really took seeing herself through someone else's eyes to see herself more clearly than ever before. She got that in double with her men. They gave her strength to have a conversation with her mom that she wasn't able to previously. I loved Shelly and reading her journey in finding herself and love along the way.
I give Never Been Kissed 5 hearts!
About the Book
Shelly MacIsaac has pretty much given up all hope. Hope that she’ll lose weight, that she’ll find any excitement in life, that there will ever be any man in her bed besides Barney, her cat.
When her friend Zoey suggests the wine girls come up with resolutions for the New Year, Shelly latches onto the one everyone expects her to choose—the tried-and-true commitment to go on a diet and get into shape. Deep inside, however, Shelly knows she needs to change a lot more than just her physical appearance.
After a year licking his wounds over a broken romance, Christian is through. He’s been quietly lusting after Shelly at work, and he’s not wasting any more time. There’s something about her that makes him believe she’s the one. Unfortunately, Shelly’s kickboxing instructor, Lance—Christian’s best friend—has set his sights on the sweet blonde as well.
Instead of pistols at dawn, the two friends come up with a deliciously erotic answer to their shared dilemma—if the shy beauty will accept their racy proposal.
Warning: There is a chance this story will encourage you to go on a diet and begin an intense exercise regime. After all, flavored body lube is low cal, right? And sex is a great way to burn calories.
