Goodreads: How much weight is too much for one romance to bear?

When Kate Richards, the effervescent host of television's KidFit and the author of kid-friendly diet cookbooks, runs into Jack Moskowitz at a dog park, sparks fly. He's attractive, charming, and single. She has no idea that he's also the one man who could cost Kate her career--the CEO of Considerable Carriages, a company that profits from childhood obesity. 

Jack knows exactly who Kate is, though. She tore his company apart on television only the day before! Seeing an opportunity, Jack starts digging up dirt on his nemesis, to put her crusade on ice once and for all. But the more time the two spend together, the more his lie—and his feelings for Kate—spiral out of control. 

When Jack and Kate try to tip the scales of romance it brings chaos, heartbreak and hilarity and more than a few laps around love’s track.

Kritters Thoughts:  These two should be polar opposites and should not find anything attractive in the other, but after a few chance encounters they can't seem to get away from each other, but their professionals are definitely conflicting.  

The quick romance threw me for a loop and it definitely moved to the bedroom fast and I was nervous that there was going to be nowhere to go, but the author turned the story on its head at the right moment and I loved how it concluded.  Another story that took the reader behind the scenes of celebrity which I always love!

An added touch was the inclusion of a highlight of a story, facebook status or quote from the character started each chapter and had to do with the contents of the chapter.  I think this extra thing added to the book so much.

Beware - if you are wary of the sexy times in books, then you may want to avoid this one, it got quite hot and steamy a few times.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
