I used to imagine that life would be easier, more enjoyable, if I were tall, blond, and supermodel thin. But real life—like the average, every day woman—is full of curves and imperfections, and many opportunities to learn that it’s not the number on the scale that measures the capacity of your heart.
After years of struggling with poor self esteem and too many crash diets to count, I finally got wise—and hired a trainer. With an enthusiastic push from my brother’s fiancé and more motivation than a Joel Osteen sermon, I, Madeline “Leni” Moore, am ready to ditch the oh-woe-is-me act.
That is, until I smack head-on into a tree and collide with him. Lane Sheffield is the guy you drool over from afar. One look at him the first day on the runner’s track, and my panties are up in flames. He’s out of my league. Slim, sleek, and athletic to my plump, dull, and unfit. Lane has no reason to like me, but to my utter shock . . . he does and this newfound attention from the opposite sex has me all sorts of baffled.
What starts out as a healthy journey to lose some of the extra me, turns into a quest to find my true self. Will the need to fit in and finally have someone to call my own lead me to my weight loss goal or my happiness goal? I've focused so long on being skinny, what will it take for me to learn the ultimate lesson—that beauty is only skin deep?
5 Star Review by Ashley
Stop what you're doing (yes that means reading this review) and go one-click Moore to Love! Faith Andrews delivered a book that is so real, so easy to relate to and so easy to love. The whole cast from Hudson to Ashley and G.I Jane, made this book fun and easy to get wrapped up in. But the biggest reason I got lost in the pages was Leni.
Oh Leni. She is every woman with insecurities and at the same time she is herself. Sweet and sassy with a side of shy and vulnerable. Her journey started out as one of weight loss but quickly became so much more. I loved watching her grow and learn to embrace and own her flaws, learn to love who she is for what she is, not just the number on the scale. One of the biggest reasons behind that was Mr. Fancy Pants himself, Lane. He is equal parts mysterious and sexy. Turns out Mr. Unattainable is actually a shy guy and I adored that about him.
I loved his kindness, his patience, his gentleness. How he lifted Leni up and let her shine. He loved all of her- from flab to fears. He didn't judge her by her failures by only by her dreams. Gah- I could swoon over him all day but I could also tell he was holding something back, Leni could too. And when he revealed his big secret it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. On top of that, Leni's reaction to his news was less than stellar.
High five, two thumbs up and a job well done Faith Andrews! I get this book, I live this book. Moore to Love is an incredibly poignant yet light hearted look into the everyday. Let's face it we're all human and we all have insecurities. I loved how Lane's encouragement of Leni allowed her to become the best version of herself. At the same time, it allowed Lane to shed his own nervousness. It was beautiful to witness the growth both of them went through in the course of the book. It was done with humor, wit and heart and I found myself laughing as much as I was rooting for Leni and Lane to get their happy. OH!! there was aslo a little ode to my other favorite couple of Faith's...Jack and Stella!
