Weightless by Kandi Steiner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sometimes you pick up a book, and you just know you are going to love it. It is not just about the cover, or the author, it is a feeling you get. Then you start reading, and fall into the book, and nothing else matters around you. I found it with this book. Positively Loved It!
Natalie is a girl of privilege, her step-dad’s name is all over the town, because he basically owns most of it. You would think this is every teens dream. And maybe it was before the summer started, but in a few short weeks, Nat gets hit with some hurtful truths. Her boyfriend Mason of two years ends their relationship as school breaks out for senior year. Two days later, he is now with a new girl who resembles a mean Barbie. Nat then decides that Mason may have dumped her because of her weight, but she is going to do something about it for her own well being, and if she wins him back in the meantime, then a bonus! What she doesn’t count on is her new Personal Trainer, Rhodes! He was the bad boy at school when she was a junior and he a senior.
Over the summer, Rhodes works Nat, or who he likes to call “Bug” into a sweat and she finds a whole load of confidence as well. She likes to think that she has helped Rhodes too with his self worth. They embark on a friendship that neither saw coming and one they have to fight hard to keep. Not everyone is happy with this couple, and things from Rhodes’ pass come back to haunt them both.
There were some twists in this book that I didn’t see coming, and it made it very interesting indeed. But mostly I loved it for its romantic tale. Highly recommend it to all.
