They say that big girls don't cry. But when the chips are down and the dip is gone, what can you do? Pull up your BIG GIRL PANTIES and change your life.
Ever since her husband Bruce died from pancreatic cancer, 32-year-old Holly Brennan has holed up in their suburban dream home, paralyzed by sadness and gaining weight from too much grief-eating. When she has to go out of town to settle his estate, fate strikes. Because sitting next to her on the plane home is Logan Montgomery, a personal trainer to the country's most famous pro athletes. Mortified by the way she's squeezed into the airplane seat, Holly can barely bring herself to talk to a guy who looks like the cover model for Men's Fitness, but when he calms her down during a bumpy takeoff, they strike up a conversation. Logan discovers that the seatmate he'd thoughtlessly written off as just another fat chick has a sharp wit and keen insight--a welcome change from the vapid Barbie dolls he dates Intrigued, he makes her an offer: he'll train her at his state-of-the-art gym and help her get back into fighting shape at a special reduced price. Equally intrigued, and eager to make at least one positive change in her life, Holly agrees.
Holly turns out to be a natural gym rat, and even smarter and more dedicated than Logan could have guessed when they met in economy class. But when Logan introduces a more slimmed-down Holly to his best friends, baseball star Chase Walker and his wife Amanda, his friends instantly see what Logan doesn't; Holly is a bona-fide looker, with killer curves. Amanda Walker, a sassy plus-size girl herself, thinks Holly might be just what Logan needs, and she can't help but try to push them together romantically. When Logan and Holly finally give in, the fireworks in the bedroom are beyond anything they would have imagined.
But can a man who's spent his whole life hung up on looks--his own and his clients'--truly commit himself to a woman who's not supermodel-thin? Now that Holly's fit and turning other men's heads, does she even need Logan anymore? Are they built to last or is their sizzling affair just one of those ill-advised client-trainer romances?
A debut that's sure to get people talking, BIG GIRL PANTIES is a sexy romp that's also genuinely smart and sensitive, and very, very funny.
