Leandra | 1 comments Guy leaves his own town after a breakup to go teach tennis at a rich country club to meet his real dad and also is a personal trainer at a gym. He meets the main girl at the country club and makes a deal with her to help her lose weight and find a boyfriend I think. There’s a scene where she invites him to her family’s 4th of July celebration and she wears this American flag bikini. He goes to this celebration to meet his dad and to tell his dad that he’s his son. The girl really likes to eat wings at her favourite restaurant and towards the end the guy takes her to the dance. And he lives in a basement and in the end there’s a reunion of his ex and her boyfriend and the main girl comes to apologise to him.

Leandra, around what year did you read this book? This will help narrow down the search.

About how old are the heroine and hero?

What's the tone - romantic, angsty, steamy/clean, funny at times, etc.?

Crushed by Lauren Layne seems to match your description.

Some Goodreads reviewers say, "Michael goes to Texas to meet his biological father. To get close to his father, he works at the country club as tennis pro and personal trainer. That's how he meets Kristin Bellamy, the girl his half-brother is dating and who just happens to be exactly his type. Other than her sister, Chloe, who is her opposite: chubby, too loud with wild curly hair. When he learns that Chloe secretly is in love with Devon, his half-brother, he offers to help her, all the while using her to get to his biological father's family. They start personal training and eventually end up sort of being friends." | "Michael's reaction to Chloe in her Fourth of July bikini."
