Then Chris makes her start going to the gym to lose weight and as the pounds come off, Chris begins to see these changes…like Callie starts to look more girly, and since he’s a total playboy and lady lover, he starts getting attracted to her while thinking that she’s still a “he”. Basically, he thinks he’s going gay.
When I first read the blurb for this story, I thought how far fetched it sounded. I mean it isn’t all that odd that an overweight woman with short hair and no makeup could be mistaken for a man. We know that chubby men get some sort of man-boobs, but for her to keep pulling it off for any length of time seemed a bit off.
However this author does make it seem extremely plausible. The Hero, Christopher has a flamboyantly gay brother so he grew up with a male that always accentuated his feminine features, and also spoke and acted feminine. So he incorrectly assumed that Cal was gay like his brother and his brothers friends.
However, I still feel a bit bad for our hero when he begins to have feelings for Cal. He is so conflicted. I know she is in love with him and probably afraid of losing him, but tell him already.
Despite that, this story is definitely heating up as Callie’s feelings continue to grow and she thinks it is a lost cause. Meanwhile Christopher is having feelings he has no idea what to do with. Fun times! On to the next book.
