A rollicking and poignant romantic comedy about a young widow who decides to get in shape...and winds up getting her groove back—and a whole lot more!
Holly Brennan used food to comfort herself through her husband’s illness and death. Now she’s alone at age thirty-two. And she weighs more than she ever has. When fate throws her in the path of Logan Montgomery, personal trainer to pro athletes, and he offers to train her, Holly concludes it must be a sign. Much as she dreads the thought of working out, Holly knows she needs to put on her big girl panties and see if she can sweat out some of her grief.
Soon, the easy intimacy and playful banter of their training sessions lead Logan and Holly to most intense and steamy workouts. But can Holly and Logan go the distance as a couple now that she’s met her goals—and other men are noticing?


  • Cute and contemporary plot but flawed

    By Paleo Schnauzer
    There were several times reading through the graphic sex scenes I was ready to close the book on this story and delete it from my library. It was so much cookie cutter bad boy plain girl boy gets girl in end after she decides he’s not the one. A million trashy romance novels follow the exact same plot. I don’t like reading about sex in detail and there was way too much for my liking. Not quite Shades of Gray (not sick s and m) but still over the top. What was the only redeeming feature is that a shallow self centered jerk can fall for a sweet but plain Jane with 50 extra lbs.
  • Wouldn’t recommend amysue89

    Definitely not on par with Stephanie Plum or the Diesel books. I’ll stick with those going forward.
  • I loved it, definitely a reread!

    I don’t normally write reviews, but I genuinely loved this book. Holly was so sweet, I really loved the chemistry she had with Logan! Logan was a “one type of woman” guy in the beginning, he loved blonde models and Holly being a curvy redhead was the total opposite so I knew there was going to be a lot of ‘self/mental tug of war’ in this story. Holly was lonely, very self loathing, and in need of help regarding her health in the beginning and Logan was willing and felt obligated to give it to her. He was an acquired taste at first but also a big softy so give him time, he may seem shallow but he really won me over!
  • Book was great!

    By MelissaMLS
    Starts out sort of slow but ends up being a great story with many twists and turns and a surprise ending.
  • Unexpected

    I read the synopsis and thought okay this could be like Jemima J by Jane Green but I think I liked this even more? I sometimes got annoyed when they are in Holly’s head only to realize that I too think like that sometimes. Especially about myself. To see her become a better version of herself and to come out on top happy and healthy was worth reading. I like that Logan wasn’t always likable and perfect. It made him more realistic. All in all, a great quick read to escape for a while.

    I loved this book.
  • Clever and thought provoking

    By Sharon K Sherman
    Big Girl Panties does a great job of combining romance, eating disorders and social acceptance. To some degree, we each have our prejudices. This story delves into the consequences of our actions, regardless of our motivations. Well-written.
