Fat Girl

When the past and present collide…

I know even before he turns. Even before our eyes meet.
My breath stutters. “Hello Deeana.”
His voice, deeper with age, packs an unfair sexual punch. Just like the rest of him.

Deeana Chase has finally picked up the pieces of her shattered heart. She has built a new life as a child advocacy lawyer. Her food issues are quasi under control, her secrets are buried, and she has even made a tenuous peace with her not-so-perfect body.

Until Micah Peters—the very sexy and now famous man she fled—walks through her office door and sends Dee reeling. His demand that she help a young boy caught in a custody battle will reunite her with the very past she left behind.

Dee is the last woman Mick wants to ask for help. Fifteen years ago, she ran away without any explanation, tearing herself out of his life and leaving a gaping hole. But for the sake of his family, he can put aside his anger and resentment. He can play it cool and keep his distance.

If only…

When Dee takes the case, the former lovers get more than they bargained for—a searing passion that burns hotter than ever, and startling revelations about what really happened the fateful night she left.

In this emotionally-charged story about regrets and forgiveness, will the truth clear the path for a long-awaited second chance? Or will past hurts and insecurities destine Dee to walk away from her one true love…and break both of their hearts again?

one HOT, emotional, and all-around EXCELLENT contemporary romance!

The topic of body image and self-acceptance appear to be very important to Leigh Carron, and she encourages women to accept themselves as they are, which is very refreshing.

Dee and Mick are opposites in many ways, especially in the physical sense. He was named the Sexiest Man Alive by a magazine, and she…well, not so much. Yet, in spite of this glaring difference between them and the many obstacles constantly in their way, the love that Dee and Mick have for each other never dies. It’s a truly touching story to read. The love expressed between Dee and Mick is SO endearing and so believable. I was sincerely rooting for them to end up together and happy.

The story changes from his point of view to hers and back again, and the writing throughout evoked such emotions that I almost felt as if these were my good friends telling me their story! I was almost brought to tears, but not always in a sad way. I felt SO much throughout this book, and I could not put it down!

Romance Novel Giveaways

An emotional story of love, self-acceptance and learning to make peace with the past.

I was immediately drawn into FAT GIRL by Leigh Carron’s powerful story, emotional storytelling and her truly relatable characters. She expertly navigates between scenes that run the gamut of human emotions: fiery arguments, gutwrenching heartbreaks and screen-melting love scenes.

Reese Ryan, author of Waking Up Married
Leigh Carron has produced an engaging novel that is anchored in the passionate connection between two complex and authentic characters. Carron is clearly a girl’s girl with a deep respect for and understanding of what truly makes women tick. Readers will most certainly connect with her leading lady’s struggles around body image and intimacy, and be inspired by the underlying theme of self-acceptance.
