Madeline “Leni” Moore is every woman. (I‘m every woman, it’s all in me). She’s me, for sure. She’s you. She’s your mother, your sister, your aunt, your cousin, your niece. She’s your boss, your teacher, your neighbor. Even if weight is not your issue, Leni’s struggles are something that we can all relate to.
Leni’s brother is getting married, and that’s the kick-start she needs to finally take charge of her life and lose the unwanted pounds she’s been carrying around for years. With the encourage ...more
Leni isn't someone I can 100 percent relate but I understand her insecurites and issues with herself. I mean what women doesn't? But I feel like her insecurites were easily swept / brushed aside after losing weight. It felt unrealistic, at least in my eyes. And her being a fat girl with Oh!!!!!! a pretty face doesn't really make me that sympathetic t ...more

I had a hard time getting into the story. It seemed like I was stuck for a while. I can't put my finger on it but there was something missing and the story didn't seem to move forward. Then finally chapter nine came along and so did the story. Leni and Lane had some great chemistry and I loved Lane's awkardness. It was refreshing to not read about yet another alpha-male! Although Lane made a few cryptic comments about himself, I was quick to figur ...more
Moore to Love is an emotional story about a woman loving who she is and accepting that there are others out there who will love her for-- her!
Trust me, this book is emotional, filled with inspriational quotes (loved them) and fabulous characters who you will fall head over heels in love with!!!
If you are looking for an awe ...more
Moore To Love is a great book.
It wasn't a dieting or exercising journal but a realistic and engaging journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance.
I was pleasantly surprised in the end by Leni's strength to face her flaws and her weaknesses without any second thoughts.
I've already read some of Faith Andrew's previous works and I'm a fan of her writing style but this was perfect,flowing,challenging,thought-provoking and entertaining.

***POSSIBLE SPOILERS PRESENT WITHIN REVIEW***
I don’t know. I had mixed feelings about this one. A few times I found myself stopping and putting it down, just to find myself pick it up to find out how everything ended. Leni was an engaging and humorous young woman. Because of the sensitivity of her being overweight, though, she lacked confidence and self-assurance when it came to men. With a few great friends, she decides to commit to losing weight and working with a trainer. Event ...more
First of all in this review, I wanna say how much I love the cover, it's so pretty and sweet. It drew me in from the get go. Then of course I read the blurb and I knew, I just knew I was going to love this book. It's totally up my alley.
Ok, so if you haven't read the blurb, (and I definitely think you should) I'll give you the watered down version. Madeleine 'Leni' Moore is a plus sized woman going through what most ...more
Moore to Love by Faith Andrews is a new, romantic comedy, standalone novel.
"...let's call the world my triple decker bacon burger with mushrooms and cheddar."
Leni's life has always revolved around food and family. They've been her go-to for pretty much everything. Moments of happiness sadness, desperation, and rejection were always met with these two staples. When she is challenged to make a change, she is unprepared for the opportun ...more
Faith Andrews gives us one of THE best heroines I've read in a long long time in Leni Moore. She is so relatable. Her struggles with being a bit zaftig (look it up) in a world where everyone seems to be a size two had me laughing hard one minute and tearing up the next.
It's all told in Leni's POV and her biting wit was a complete joy to read. You become one of her besti ...more
Leni is exactly one of those characters that I can connect with, in struggling with weight and self-confidence issues. I think a lot of readers will be able to connect and fall in love with her. Lane is hot with a huge caring side, but he has a HUGE secre ...more
Everyone has something they hate about themselves and sometimes finding the positive is an unattainable task. Leni has heard it all right down to ““You have such a pretty face.” I force an unenthusiastic smile, assuming she’ll leave it at that, letting the unspoken words “if you only lost weight” dangle awkwardly between us. But nope. Not this time . . .” Fighting the dauntless task ...more
Moore to Love was a book about a woman dealing with her insecurities.
Leni Moore is a woman struggling with her weight and the insecurity it can bring. Something of which I can totally relate to, which made me enjoy this some what romantic comedy, with the serious aspect of how everyone deals with their insecurities differently.
Well for Leni, she just sees herself as an overweight woman with nothing else going for her, she let her weig ...more
Moore to love is such a beautiful story. It teaches about the importance of accepting yourself like you are. About how cruel can the people be. But it also teaches about friendship, about love and about how supportive the persons you least expected it can be.
From this story you can learn to not judge a book by its cover. That not everything is what seems. And that there is more of a person than what's on the outside. No matter how beautiful t ...more
This book hit me right in the feels. Leni is easily one of the most relatable characters I've ever read. I give major props to Faith for writing her in a way that felt authentic and not just as a way to pander to a certain crowd looking to be represented in the fictional world.
I am Leni and all of that self-doubt she feels, despite multiple people telling her how beautiful and amazing she is, was so on-point I couldn't help but cry. At the same time Leni never came off as overly self-d ...more
While reading Madeline’s story, I understood every feeling she felt. What person doesn’t feel like they aren’t slim enough for society’s approval? But the good thing about Leni is that she accepts her body figure and is happily living her life as she sees fit. Yet that comes crashing down when news hits that her younger fit brother is getting married and guess who the maid of honor is? Yup, you guessed it – Leni. Now she wants to lose some pounds t ...more
I have struggled with weight issues and negative body image for most of my adult life. Seriously, who hasn't? In an age where we are flooded with images of what is considered "sexy," "beautiful," or "perfect," is it even possible to "measure up?" Enter Moore to Love, a book which is meant to call attention to the struggles so many women (and men) face - ...more
