I have two guilty pleasures. Sexy men and delicious food.

Since gorgeous men don’t usually go for guys like me, I tend to indulge in the latter.

When I score a week-long job as the hospitality manager for a private island resort, it’s the wakeup call I need. I’m surrounded by hot, sculpted bodies—men who look like they’re straight out of fitness magazines.

I stand out, but not in the way I want to.

Even though gyms have never been my thing, I decide to try the island’s workout center. That’s where I stumble into what must be the hottest guy at the resort.

He’s exercising shirtless, but hell, I would too if I was him.

Of all the men on the island, this one takes the cake. Chiseled. Perfect. Out of my league.

But through a treadmill accident of embarrassing proportions, the hottest guy on the island suddenly becomes my hero.

I don’t know if I’m his type, but I find myself wondering if a night between the sheets counts as cardio.


I always seem to be drawn to the sculpted, Adonis types.

More than just that, they have to be shallow. That’s how I protect myself—by finding guys who would rather hit the gym than actually get to know me. The real me...not just the physical.

Lately, though, I’ve been hoping for more than that.

And then I meet Evan.

There’s an instant connection. The chemistry is there, but with him, it’s much more than physical. He’s sweet, funny, and adorably clumsy. I’m excited by the idea of building a future, and I want to explore it with him, but the notion of letting someone in terrifies me.

Evan doesn’t know it yet, but he’s the guy I’ve been fantasizing about. I don’t want to rush it, but the spark is undeniable, so I decide to start with a private invitation.

Maybe it’s time to show Evan my idea of a workout.

Note to readers: This is an extra spicy MM romance. Readers can expect two passionate men and several steamy scenes that will leave you breathless. 

The Weight is Over by Jason Collins is a cute fast paced romance. I loved the characters.   Evan is a hospitality manager. He is overweight and very self-conscious about it.  He is pretty hard on himself in this book.  He is a great person with a great sense of humor, but he cannot see that in himself.
Nicholas has recently broken up with a jerk of a boyfriend. He thinks he wants men who are fit and look amazing. Then he meets Evan. He sees beyond the outside trappings with Evan to the sweet funny man inside of him. 
They have some bumps in the road to find the love they both crave. They just have to grow and learn that sometimes to love someone else you must learn to love you for who you are.

This is a charming sweet read with just enough heat to keep me turning the pages. Highly recommend this one to the truly romantic at heart.
