Genre:Inspirational Contemporary Romance
We all have that voice inside our heads.
The one that speaks to us incessantly. That voice we trust to make the right decisions, to keep us on a positive path, even when others try to bring us down.
But what happens when that voice changes?
When it’s no longer a voice of reason, a voice of comfort giving us a pep talk when we need one?
What happens when that inner voice turns into a bully?
Don’t you dare eat that.
You’ll never be as pretty as her
You’ll never be as good as them.
You’re lazy. You’re stupid.
You are disgusting.
You. Are. Nothing.
What happens when that inner voice makes your body takes its side?
And what happens when the bully starts to win?
If your name is Alina Cassidy, then you fight like hell.
Warning: Deals with subject matter some readers might find sensitive. But I promise an HEA.
Review by Paula:
What a emotional deep book that truly pulls at your heart. This book is truly one I’ll never forget. The author brings you fully into a world that deals with bulimia and abuse and makes you feel the characters into your bones. I cried and yelled and even had to calm myself while reading this book because it truly makes you feel hopeless at times so much you wanna reach into the book and help. Everyone has a past and demons but we all need to realize we’re strong and we can fight and not give up and finally be loved. 5 you are enough stars!
Review by Victoria:
5 stars does not even begin to give this book justice!
Alina, an amazing musician, spends most days fighting demons most wouldn’t even know about. When the bully is in your own mind, it’s hard to win the daily struggle against your own body. That is until her band gets the shot of a life time to tour with a major band and label!
That’s where Slater, lead singer and hot man extraordinaire, comes in. Having always been a play boy and never looking to settle down, Alina knocks Slater on his behind the first time he sees her. But will magnetic attraction be enough to over come the demons Alina has battled for years?
Gillian has written this story so flawlessly and honestly. Alina is every one of us when someone makes a passing comment about weight or eating habits. Everyone has had moments they’ve hated looking in the mirror, or hated the way clothes fit. Her bully is the same bully we’ve all dealt with. I cried, i laughed and I loved this novel. Alina’s strength and spirit are amazing in this book. Slater is the man dreams are made of, so loving and patient. But the real beauty is Alina’s triumph on her own. This is a story of a woman finding her own path to recovery and happiness that just seems to include a hotter than sin rockstar. This story will knock you down in emotions but I promise, by the end, your heart will be so full of joy and love. You cannot miss this read!
Review by Christine:
Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones is a deeply emotional encompassing a truly difficult subject ~ bulimia and fighting an eating disorder. Alina Cassidy and her brother Lucky only have each other, both fighting addictions and battling their demons. No one would wish their childhood on their worst enemy. Alina is trying to follow her dreams but “she” keeps holding her back and trying to trip her up. Reading and following her journey was heartbreaking, eye opening and hopeful all at the same time.
The author gives her all in each and every book she writes. I doubt there is a topic she’ll shy away from. I was excited to dive into another one of Gillian’s books and again I wasn’t disappointed. At times I found Fighting Weight hard to read because it felt so real but that is only a testament to the authors ability to suck us into her story. 5 “Tree House” stars for Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones
