I enjoyed reading about how Marissa lost weight. The rest was a nice romance story, but ordinary.

Nothing surprised or delighted me. A gorgeous hunky Native American guy, Robert, has wounds from growing up poor and seeing ugliness in the military. He thinks he's not good enough for Marissa. She is a rich girl with her own wounds from the past. She used to be fat and now is thinner. Men now find her desirable. She teaches in a small town, has a good heart and does significant charity work with her
This was interesting to me because Marissa had lost almost 100 lbs. And I liked her and Red Dog, but did not feel strongly about their being a couple. Guess I could not overly sympathize w/her being a poor little rich girl.
There are endless treasures to be found in the troves of category romances. This love story shines.

Ruth Wind creates excellent nuanced characters that at once embody archetypes in order to explore the themes that draw a reader to a kind of character and then she sketches them so finely we can never see these people as anything but real, human, and compelling.

In this romance, we have a the less traditionally attractive twin as a larger sized heroine from the upper class and a hero who is a seen
Can a rich school teacher and a poor construction worker/glass artist fall in love? Besides coming from totally different worlds Marissa Pierce and Robert Martinez have a lot in common: Roberts pregnant niece who is Marissas pupil for example and a love of glass ...

Lovely novel which handles topics of Marissa's weight loss and Roberts inscurities over his background very believably.
