Title: Weighting for Christmas
Author: AJ Harmon
Release Date: December 1, 2016
Add to GoodreadsKate Evans is a vibrant beautiful woman. Chad Rockwood is the personal trainer her mother has hired to help her lose the extra pounds she carries. They start out as trainer and client and quickly move to friends, but when Kate’s mom signs her up on an online matchmaking site, Chad sees red. Do opposites attract? Can Chad convince Kate that she is more than a number on a scale?
A funny and emotional look at romance when it’s least expected.
AJ Harmon creates book boyfriends that the reader can easily fall in love with and Chad was certainly no exception. I fell in love with Chad very quickly for the way he was with Kate and the way he always made her feel beautiful and important.
I will say that Kate is a remarkably strong woman - I would have probably crumbled from the constant subtle and not so subtle digs about her weight from her own family. When she meets Chad he is a blessing but letting go of those negative opinions is not going to be easy.
I loved how Kate and Chad started out on a professional basis before becoming friends and more. It made it all the sweeter somehow. I loved the fact that Kate was oblivious to Chad's changing feelings for her and the event that made him finally act. So many of us will be able to relate to Kate and her feelings of being unworthy and inadequate and this is why AJ Harmon is so awesome. She creates characters we can completely relate to.
AJ grew up in Perth, Western Australia. She is the third of six children and her first exposure to romance was her parents. Now married for over 55 years, they have always been her example when working on her own marriage and parenting skills. Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters and Georgette Heyer, were the writers she grew to love in adolescence and still loves now. Her list of favorite authors now has grown to include, not only historical but also contemporary authors as well. Sadly, she doesn’t have as much time to indulge in novels as much as she would like. Her family and now writing her own novels, keeps her very busy, but you will always find a book on her nightstand and hundreds on her Kindle. Other hobbies include cooking, one her favorite television shows is The Next Iron Chef on Food Network, and traveling, the UK and the Caribbean her favorite places to visit.
She and her husband of 30+ years, reside on the west coast of the USA and have two grown children, making them empty-nesters, and an active loveable mutt named Max.
