Loath at first sight sparks through love in an insightful tale that examines our perception of beauty and is written from the heart. Interestingly the author lost half her body weight, and so does her heroine, which adds an angle of authenticity I’m sure many can relate to. It is very astute.

Sunny Weston is bright, breezy and fun. She is also fat.
Well, less fat that she was. In her pursuit of the perfect figure – and the life to match – Sunny has lost seven stone, with two to go. Yet as her thighs shrink her problems grow. When gorgeous Adrian at work decides that the new streamlined Sunny is the girl for him, she should be thrilled. But then she realises that Adrian loves her looks, not who she is.
The only perfect thing about Cagney James are his put-downs. Cynical funny and old-school cool, he runs an agency that specialises in catching cheating lovers – something he has plenty of experience of.
When Sunny and Cagney meet it’s loathe at first sight. Their hearts are too hard to see that they might have met their match, so they declare war instead. But sparks of anger have a habit of becoming flames of passion …
