9780061173080: The Perfect Fit: Fat-Free Dreams Just Don't Taste the Same

Sunny Weston always wanted to be perfect . . . and that meant being thin. Now, after what seemed like a million years on the treadmill—and a million miles from the nearest brownie—she finally fits into those slinky black dresses she's been eyeing for years.

But being a perfect size doesn't necessarily equal a perfect life. Suddenly Sunny's best friends are all bitter and jealous. She's become a stranger in her own body. And though her longtime work crush, Adrian, is finally her boyfriend, she's totally confused now that charming, daringly dapper Cagney has appeared on the scene. Worst of all, she's worried that the recipe for a happy life might not be low-calorie after all.

Maybe it's time for Sunny to discover that the true secret to happiness isn't constantly feeling hollow.

About the Author:

London-based femme fatale Louise Kean used her own recent weight loss as inspiration for The Perfect Fit. She is a producer for the film industry in Soho, United Kingdom, and she is now working on her fourth novel.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this smart, endearing third outing from London-based Kean, witty and knowing 28-year-old Sunny Weston lives in a London suburb, where she runs a home-based Internet business selling sex toys. Sick of being overweight and in unrequited love with the unattainable Adrian, Sunny loses 98 pounds the hard way-a strict diet and exercise. But now that she can have Adrian, she no longer wants him. Her navel gazing, however, is soon interrupted when a young boy is kidnapped before her eyes from a Starbucks. With her newly athletic body, Sunny is able to chase down the kidnapper, and, with the help of another bystander, Cagney, return the boy to his panicked mother. This event sets in motion the process of coming to terms with her notions of the perfect body and the perfect man. Kean follows Sunny as her life returns to normal, which includes hanging out with friends Anna and Lisa, and seeing her therapist, with whom she questions her relationships with food, her body and men. Finally, Sunny must find her own terms for happiness. Well-written and engrossing, this novel may inspire and entertain those who are tired of the hunger for love, or just tired of hunger.
