Book Description:

Cami Pressman is a yoga instructor with a lifelong secret love of junk food. Not even an irresistible man can replace the mouthwatering wickedness of her favorite foods.

Until, that is, Paul Hammond signs up for her class. He’s a gourmet chef looking to score some fitness tips, and a date with Cami. Suddenly Cami’s lust for junk food isn’t the only thing making her tingle.

When this sinful chef and hot yoga teacher eat, play, and lust together, they just might bring their obsession to a new level.

* Tawna will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Eat, Play, Lust to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.

My opinion:

I am grateful that I got to read this book because while it is short, it is also a very interesting read.

The story is not very complex, but it would have been impossible taking into account the number of pages, but it is very well written, the author knows how to get your attention that’s for sure.

The story as a whole is cute and a little bit fluffy, but the most important thing is that the book tackles a problem that many people, especially woman often face – weight.  Cami used to have a weight problem and that affected her deeply and continues to do so. It is sad that in today’s society physical appearance matters so much. What certain people do not understand is that some of those overweight people eat even more because of how others treat them, maybe if they would leave them alone they could solve their issues faster and then continue will their lives without constantly worrying they they ate too many carrots that day. ( yes carrots because they have a higher GI than most vegetables)

On other thing that I loves is that the story is realistic and that the author perfectly combines what is probably meant to be a life lesson with romance. Maybe on some level the books also gives hope to those that need it.

I think this book is important for you to read so that you can understand better what someone with weight problems feels and maybe learn an important lesson weather you are in Cami’s position or you are just an outsider.

From me: 3.5/5 ( on a short story scale)

**I apologize for my absence, but I’ve been kinda of sad this past few days.

  1. Hmm, nu mi se pare chiar cea mai interesantă carte… parcă subiectul este neatrăgător. Dar cred că merită totuşi citită… nu pare a fi o carte chiar rea. Nici coperta nu e fantastică..

  2. I like the cover: we can tell that it’s going to be a light story. I’m glad you liked it :)
    (And please, if you want to talk about what’s going on in your life, be it a good or a bad thing, please do it so we can help you and give you advices. You are not alone!) :)

    1. Thank you! :) It’s nothing much…I just got a twin instead of a single room at my residence hall and I already tried the twin thingy and it does not work for me as I for some unknown reason cannot sleep or study when there is someone else in my personal space. I am thinking of trying again because it is the closest I can live to my college and if I can’t then I will look for private dorm though it is very late and all the good ones or reasonable priced ones are taken.

  3. it could be an interesting book to read because sadly yes it’s a common topic and quite unfair but at teh moment i guess i’m too in my happy bubble for taking that risk

  4. This sounds like something I’d definitely be up for reading! I think its great that the author is bringing through weight issue messages in a cute romantic read! and some of the proceeds is going towards Alzheimer’s research! The author sounds like a really great person…
    Thanks for the review!
    Don’t feel that you need to apologise for not posting for a couple of days! Honestly I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t felt great these past few days!
    I do feel a little disappointed when I see you haven’t posted anything new in a while ;) but you shouldn’t feel that you need to have new posts everyday especially when you have other things going on in your life! I hope everything with your living conditions works out!

    1. Thank you! I hope that I will room with someone who has similar interests. The only good thing is that I have an ensuite :) I will continue to post, but I also have to schedule posts for when I start school so that I can relax and write when I want to and when time allows me to. I want to keep posting when school starts:) (don’t take it the wrong way, but I am glad that you are a bit sad when I do not post)
