Worth the Weight by Mara Jacobs Book Summary

Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling Worth Series

A New Body...
A New Life...
An Old Flame?

Lizzie Hampton is literally a shadow of her former self. Having lost half her body weight, she's headed to her small hometown to test out her new body on an old flame.
Just a harmless fling to get her self confidence back before she returns to
the city and the new man in her life.

But Lizzie's plan has a few bumps in the road.

Finn Robbins can't believe Liz is back in town. Desperate to be the holder of her innocence eighteen years ago, he never got the chance.
Now she's back and he can finally check her off his to do list.

But her friends, his son, and the mysterious Annie may have something to say about that.

This book contains 2-3 fairly graphic love scenes and the F-bomb is detonated somewhat frequently. If it was a movie, it would be rated a hard R.

Worth the WeightWas a little concerned when I read the book summary that it might be a little trashy. Not the case. It was a great story, characters well developed, and an easy read..Score: 4/5

Wonderful readFor anyone who has ever had body issues, this book makes a lot of sense. I loved reading it and seeing the characters fall back in love and Liz finally seeing herself as Finn saw her..Score: 5/5

Better Than I Could've ImaginedI dove into this book unsure of what to expect, considering it was free on iBooks, but the concept was intriguing, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I would recommend it to anyone. So many romance novels are all about the sex and this one made it more about the characters and growth than about what happens beneath the sheets. I found myself mourning with the characters over lost years and bad decisions, but loving the realness of their lives and the decisions they made about the people they were or wanted to be. Couldn't put it down, thanks for a great read!.Score: 5/5

Not Worth ItThis book was free, but I wish I could take back the time I spent getting through most of it--think trashy novel at it's worst. Simple terrible..Score: 1/5

Raw emotionThis book was Amazing!!! It deserves more than 5 stars. Once you pick it up you can't put it down! Dealing with weight issues such a book hits home. The raw emotion between characters is mind blowing. I hope to have love like Finn and Lizzie. I can't wait to read the next book!.Score: 5/5

The Worth seriesI don't usually do reviews but these 3 books were all so good & so different. You know how you read a good book so you buy the next one and its the same story with slight changes just different characters. Not here, each book stands on its own with different characters, likes, turn ons & endings! Great writer, I won't pass up the chance to read anything written by her again, a new author to add to my must buy list :).Score: 5/5

CuteThis was a nice lighthearted book. I loved that it was set in Michigan and it was fun to read all of the Michigan references. It was just a bit predictable..Score: 3/5

I laughed, I cried, I emphasized.As a +sized woman, I can relate to having a good figure to where my lack of self esteem resulted in a 75 pound weight gain. I worked hard to lose some, but I never had the drive or the goals to the weight I need to lose to be healthy. I liked this book primarily because she knew what she wanted and went for it. Now if I can stop my "eat this, it's good an I love you no matter how you look" husband, I may have a chance..Score: 5/5

:)I do not typically read this "type" of book... Yet I am so happy that I did. I could totally feel the characters, which is not always easy for me. I can be critical of inconsistencies, and found none. The characters were real to me, and isn't that the most important thing? Also, as someone who has had tremendous weight loss... Her emotions, reactions, we're SPOT on!.Score: 4/5

A true Yooper life storyWhen I saw this on Bookbub and read a review that it was about Michigan's UP, I knew I had to read it. I, too, am from the UP, so I had to see if it was an actual Yooper writing this book. Well avid readers, things were so accurate, there is no way it couldn't be! The book is well written, and flows well. It is a little graphic, but hey, when you live in the UP, there are long winters and your imagination runs wild, especially around March when you wish the winter would just end. The story also offered some enlightening aspects on weight gain, which sounds like a person who's been there, done that. I've already downloaded the next book in the series, way to have a plan! Just can't say enough good things about joining BookBub! It's opened my reading horizons, I'm out of that snow rut! I'm off to shovel now..Score: 5/5
