Mollie McGree is on a mission to seduce her best friend, the sexy masseuse Juan-Carlos. But she wants to lose a few extra pounds first. She joins a gym run by self-made millionaire and personal trainer, Conner Bean. Conner thinks Mollie doesn't need to lose any weight, and is perfect just the way she is. He plans to seduce the curvy Mollie by giving her his own special training sessions in passion and desire.
Soon Mollie is enjoying a no-holds-barred love affair with the vibrant and skilled Conner. But self-esteem issues on her part, as well as her unresolved feelings for Juan-Carlos, cause her to second guess Conner's motives. Conner will stop at nothing until he claims Mollie's heart for his own.
I have always said that I wasn’t a big fan of contemporary romances, but this author is turning me into a liar. “For the Love of Mollie” is a short tale about a woman becoming comfortable in her own skin and the ugly side of weight stereotypes. This story yanks you in and doesn’t release you until after the heroine’s last Earth-shattering orgasm.
Mollie, like me and most of the female population, is unhappy with her weight and how she looks. When you are told that you are fat or allow yourself to succumb to stereotyping yourself because you don’t look like a swimsuit model, it can close you off from love. The heroine is in such a bad place with how she looks that her vision of Conner and how he feels about her is tainted. It was refreshing to finally see her walls come down as she began to accept and finally love herself and Conner.
This story moves at a quick pace. The characters and plot are both well developed and interesting. The setting is realistic and described in detail. With her clear and concise writing style, Ms. Grant crafts a world that is both beautiful and thought-provoking.
