“Hilarious, engaging and relatable, I started laughing out loud from the first page” -- Kristin Vayden, bestselling author
Weight Expectations, the first in the romantic comedy Cipher Office series of standalones, from M.E. Carter is available now!
Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.
Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family—even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.
She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy—mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.
Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.
In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?
Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.
'Weight Expectations' is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Cipher Office series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.
This was a hilarious read. For anyone who is uncomfortable in going to the gym then you can totally empathise with Lian on her first visit. But kudos to her for pushing herself outside her comfort zone and her nice safe routine. In a job that she is under valued in, a social life that is lacking and a fitness level that is really not great.
Carlos sends a significant amount of time maintaining his very toned body, whilst working for Cipher Security. When you first meet him, he comes across as shallow with him preferring gym bunnies with their perfect bodies. However, as he rescues Lian from being crushed on a weight machine, he finds himself constantly thinking about her and a growing attraction to her.
I loved the laugh out loud moments in this book - every fear of going to gym pretty much happens to Lian as takes control of her life. This was a great introduction to this series and one that I enjoyed thoroughly and didn't want to put down once I had started it. I was immediately pulled into the story.

About M.E. Carter
My name is ME Carter and I have no idea how I ended writing books. I’m more of a story teller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper. I love reading (read almost 200 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love traveling to non-touristy places most people never see. I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.
