Publisher's blurb
After being dumped by his long-term boyfriend for being overweight, Henry Beckett decides to make some drastic changes. In a vain attempt at getting his boyfriend back, Henry does the most absurdly frightening thing he can think of.

He joins a gym.

Reed Henske is a personal trainer who isn’t sure he’ll ever be ready to date again. He’s sick of guys who are only interested in the perfect body image, never seeing him for who he really is.

As Reed tortures Henry with things like diet and exercise, Henry enamours Reed with recipes and laughter. As the friendship lines start to blur, Henry is convinced there’s no way Thor-like Reed could ever be interested in a guy like him.

Reed just has to convince Henry that life isn’t about reaching your ideal bodyweight. It’s about finding your perfect counterweight.


The Weight of It All by N.R. Walker covers a topic we all have gone through, being over weight. But our hero in this story gets dumped for being over weight and ex would say he was boring too. Henry at age 35 is a good person. He is caring, sweet, and likes his creature comforts. He has never exercised much, but once he gets dumped he makes some changes and goes to the gym. A whole new world opens for him. I liked his courage throughout this book. Henry is a good soul. He was easy to cheer for.
Reed has so many layers. Not only is he into personal fitness as a lifestyle, he has so much more to him. I liked his easy going attitude he really has a good heart too. Over all I really liked all his layers.
I loved how the author makes me really love the people in her book, even some of the secondaries. I also liked that this is the kind of book I would read again and again. When you want a sweet read, with some spice, that will keep you wanting more I highly suggest this one. This book is for my keeper shelf for sure.
