Fed up was a complete understatement, Carly walked the short distance to the office of the taxi company the events going round and round her head until the upset and pain were washed away by her tears only to be replaced by intense anger “How fucking dare they” she clenched and unclenched her fists continuously, the small attendant behind the counter seemed alarms at her appearance and anger, but Carly didn’t care she had had enough. How dare they treat her like that, yes she wasn’t perfect but nobody was. She knew her faults better than anyone but she didn’t appreciate being judge by people that didn’t know her, didn’t know why she had let food dictate her life for the past 5 years. They didn’t know why she struggled on a daily basis.
Carly turned to look out of the window, the lights of other clubs illuminated the streets as well as the headlights of cars passing on the road. But one light stood out, bright and clear. Carly wiped the tears from her face and lifted her chin, she felt something snap inside, almost like a lightbulb moment and she embraced it. She cancelled the taxi and headed back outside and towards the beckoning lights.
Change was happening and it was starting right now!
Just watch this fucking space…..

Rating: 5 stars
Having read Exercise In Love in the Valentine’s Day anthology and loved it, I was thrilled to learn that J Thompson was expanding it. It’s a story that can speak to any reader, especially women, as most of us have all had some type of body image issues. I don’t want to give any spoilers so I won’t go into it any more than that. All I can say is that the female main character, Carly, is so real and you can identify with her. The way J Thompson wrote her back story is a work of art. My heart ached for her so badly.
When she met the main male character, Andy, I was cheering. OMG, he is the quintessential book boyfriend. How I wish that every guy could read this book and use him as a guide for how to treat their ladies. Or maybe we could just invent a machine that brings him to life lol. I don’t know…there would be some major fighting over him 🙂
Ok, back to being serious about the book. I give Exercise In Love 5 stars for the writing, story line, character development…it has it all. You will finish this story with a smile on your face as well as looking for more J Thompson books. This author has some awesome books in her back list and the ones coming up…wow, look out, she is going to blow you away!
