Review: Fat Chances by J.S. Wilsoncroft

Title: Fat Chances

Author: J.S. Wilsoncroft

Annie is a normal, overweight 18-year-old senior in high school, until she meets Cory, the sexy, super hot Zumba instructor that turns her life upside down. Plagued with extreme insecurity due to her excessive weight, Annie learns to love and to love herself. Through Cory, she learns that she is lovable .“Fat Chances” will warm your heart and reminds us all that it’s what’s in the heart, not on the body, that counts.
My take...
Annie is the girl at her school that gets called disgusting names by her classmates thanks to being overweight. She hates to exercise and has tried all the diets out there to no avail. She has come to terms with being overweight and would just like to finish her remaining school year and leave town to go live with her aunt. She has had it with all the 'skinny' people in her small town and just wants to leave it all behind. That is until she meets Cory...breathtakingly, beautiful Cory.
Molly, Annie's twin sister, finally wears her down enough to go to Zumba one night. *Enter sexy Zumba teacher* Cory is romance novel material...everything about him screams gorgeous! So why is he suddenly interested in Annie? What does she have to offer this sexy man that other skinnier, prettier girls can’t?
Annie cannot fathom what Cory sees in her, but he is adamant that he is truly into her. Now it’s all up to Annie…will she beable to see in herself what Cory sees before it’s too late? Or will a lifetime of being self-conscience ruin something great before it ever gets a chance to begin?  
Another amazingly, sweet book by Wilsoncroft. I believe that she could write about a grill cheese sandwich and I would inhale it. Fat Chances was such a wonderful book, I devoured it within a few hours.
I am in love with how the characters, mainly the females, are not model perfect. It makes the stories more real and easier to relate to. At least it is to me. And the men she writes about...nom nom…I could just eat them up. They are adorable and caring…and I am absolutely positive that they do not exist in the real world. *I kid, I kid. My hubby is perfect and loves me just the way I am.*
If you haven’t read any of Wilsoncroft’s books…get to it. What are you waiting for? Her books are real and I am almost sure you will love them as much as I do.
