Publisher Description

Sometimes true love takes a little heavy lifting

"The most hilarious disaster bisexuals you’ll ever meet.” —Dahlia Adler, Buzzfeed Books

This irresistible adult debut from beloved YA author Jennifer Dugan is a queer romcom for fans of Delilah Green Doesn’t Care and Written in the Stars, in which a gym employee accidentally ruins her bosses’ daughter’s wedding, then even more accidentally falls for the runaway bride...

The gym is Lizzie’s life—it’s her passion, her job, and the only place that’s ever felt like home. Unfortunately, her bosses consider her a glorified check-in girl at best, and the gym punching bag at worst.

When their son, Lizzie’s best friend, James, begs her to be his plus one at his perfect sister Cara’s wedding, things go wrong immediately, and culminate in Lizzie giving a drunken pep talk to a hot stranger in the women’s bathroom—except that stranger is actually the bride-to-be, and Lizzie has accidentally convinced her to ditch her groom.

Now, newly directionless Cara is on a quest to find herself, and Lizzie—desperate to make sure her bosses never find out her role in this fiasco—gets strong-armed by James into “entertaining” her. Cara doesn’t have to know it’s a setup; it’ll just be a quick fling before she sobers up and goes back to her real life. After all, how could someone like Cara fall for someone like Lizzie, with no career and no future?

But the more Lizzie gets to know Cara, the more she likes her, and the bigger the potential disaster if any of her rapidly multiplying secrets get out. Because now it’s not just Lizzie’s job and entire future on the line, but also the girl of her dreams.

“I reaaaaaaaaally wanted to love this but the last 30% just killed it for me. Especially as someone who is conflict-averse, the scene at James’ and Cora’s parents’ was just too much for me. The things they all said to Lizzie were way out of line and just plain toxic and they’re supposed to be her best friend and someone who is in love with her?? (Also James just kind of sucked the whole time.) Sadly, it’s a no from me dog.”
“3 stars 2 spice”
“3.5 ⭐ If you don't mind the type of writing that it seems like a teenager that had a whole pack of Red Bull and maybe a little bit of cocaine wrote, then I would say to give this book a go because apart from this very high energy writing, the story overall was kinda cute.”
“I love me a cute cliche romance book (especially when it’s gay) and this one was no exception. Also the timing of me reading it worked out bc I’ve been in a bit of a gym slump ngl lol. I related to the main character a lot as in I am also disaster and somehow always end up embarrassing myself lol. But also in the fact of having complicated family dynamics and not trusting people and letting people in easily but when I do, I’d do anything I can for them. And I think it also goes to show just because people are total opposites or if someone thinks it’s not going to work out sometimes it does. And it’s scary to love someone and put your heart on the line but not everything ends in heartbreak. There’s going to be rough times (but that’s just life in general) but sometimes you just have to take the risk”
