    Fantastic romantic comedy!

    This is the best book I have read in a looong time. I loved it! Everly has never been happy with her weight so she's been on a diet of some sort forever. After being dumped she spends the evening with her friend, tequila. Her "friend" influenced her to sign up for 6 months with a personal trainer. Her plan was to get thin and fit then show her ex what he was missing. No matter how many inches she lost, she didn't think she was looking any better because the scale wasn't going down as much as she wanted it to. She had such a negative image of herself that she didn't notice that she was now several sizes smaller. I absolutely loved Fat Girl Begone! I could relate to Everly and her constant diets. I swear I have been on a diet since I was 12 when I realized boys were for more than just throwing mud at. She sure had a lot on her plate, though. Getting dumped was bad enough but she also lost her job. I loved how she turned those things into positives. First by going to the gym where she had a couple of guys interested in her. That was good for her self-esteem. Then, when her ex wanted her back, she had men coming out of the woodwork. On top of that, she starts her own business. It was a lot to handle but she was determined to be successful. This book was hilarious! Everly's first gym training session was priceless and had me laughing so hard, I couldn't see the page for my tears. They were streaming down my face. I really liked Everly and could easily identify with her. I loved her friends from the Zumba class. They were a hoot. And what a great bestie she had in Blaze. She was great in keeping Everly on track. The romance parts couldn't have been better. Having three men interested in her, all very different sure did wonders for the way she felt about herself. I want to thank the wonderful author for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I love all her books and never suspected she would write one I liked more than the others. But she did. If you enjoy romantic comedy, I highly recommend this book.

    Best romantic comedy of the year!

    Everly is having a bad day. First, her boyfriend dumps her because, and I quote, “I diet too much and don’t love myself.” Yeah, talk about a douchebag. So she calls up her best friend, Blaze, and there’s lots of tequila drinking. The next morning, Blaze picks her up and drags her to the gym to meet up with Evie’s brand new hotter than hot personal trainer. Yup, while drunk on tequila, Evie signed up for a gym membership and six months personal training sessions. Why? Because she, like most of us women out there when we get dumped, wants to have a great bod when she runs into her ex again and have him beg to take her back. But the universe has a funny sense of humor. While Evie wants to lose weight to show up her ex, Josh, she meets two hot guys who are interested in dating her. There’s her drop-dead gorgeous personal trainer, Gabriel, who flirts with her and then asks her out for a date. Then there’s the cute but geeky Carter, a member at the gym who’s clearly interested in her. Which one will Evie choose? I’m a huge Haggerty fan and pretty much anything she writes is romantic comedy gold. I’m serious. Move over Kinsella and Fielding, you’ve got competition with D. E. Haggerty. Not only does she create such life-like characters and situations (has she been stealing my diary?), but she’s one of the few writers out there who’s got the gift for comedic timing. It takes talent to blend humorous situation with laugh out loud (yes, I’m peeing my pants) dialogue and Haggerty’s got it in spades. Okay, let’s talk about Fat Girl Begone! and what I loved about it. I instantly connected with Everly and her over-fascination with her “jiggly” bits. She’s just been dumped and suddenly finds herself trying to keep up with the beautiful gym people. Hey, I’ve been there and done that. Then, she’s got three men trying to win her attention. I love Carter best but that could be my inner geek coming out. Everly’s best friend (Blaze) is the best friend in the world and has got Evie’s back! She’s my favorite character next to Everly and Carter. She loves her best friend and wants the best for her. Every gal has to have a bestie like Blaze, who tells it like it is. If you love romantic comedy and all the hijinx that comes along with life’s ups and downs, Fat Girl Begone! is a must-read! I loved it so much and it’s Haggerty’s best book to date! Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the author in the hopes I'd review it. Favorite Character/Quote: “You’re not getting this. You’re it for me. I feel it in my bones. You’re not out of my league. Your league is so far above mine, I’m surprised you even noticed me let alone looked down and smiled upon me.” And a bonus second quote because they’re both my favorite quote(s) – And then we celebrate. Without clothes. The best kind of celebrating there is. My Rating: 5+ stars

    Fat Girl Begone!

    I loved the book! A fun group of girls that were into the gym trying to keep in shape. How could anyone not love Evie and believe her to be a very special person? All of the side characters were funny loving people. I am sure you would enjoy it and I definitely recommend this book I voluntarily read and reviewed honestly an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
