Callie Picket, the-fat-girl-next-door has a big fat secret. Well, a secret she’s been successfully hiding from her oh so sexy apartment neighbor Chris Walker. In their first meeting, he mistakes her for a fat guy and she does nothing to correct him.
I didn’t think I would like this as much as I did. However it was pretty funny even though you feel pretty bad for Callie at first when Christopher mistakes her for a guy. The author is pretty smart about it though, you don’t feel too bad for her for very long since she feels bad enough for herself to take that burden off the reader.
Also since she propagates the deception and doesn’t tell him she is a girl as they become best friends and confidants it is really her fault for falling for him. Though as a girl, I can see her reasons, not only does she have no friends at all and wants someone to talk to, but to have a male friend who will be open with her is something not every girl gets.
My sister used to have a male best friend and I envied her until later in life when I got one. It is really nice to have someone of the opposite sex that you can talk about anything with. Though Callie really can’t talk about anything since she is hiding so much. But Christopher tells her all about his dates and everything. Those stories are pretty funny.
I’m interested to see how the next book goes now that Cal has agreed to start trying to live a healthier life. It should be good. Also it seems that Christopher might have something painful he is not sharing as well. There are three short books this firs one was free and the other two are available on Kindle Unlimited so I am onto the next.
