Well, I was in tears a lot of this. Why? Because I connected with this story. I am no skinny girl. I know what it's like to be made fun of because of your weight. I know what it's like to either laugh at the fat jokes or get angry at them. I know what it's like to be so self conscience you'll never believe a "hot" guy would like you.
I, for one, hated Lilly's mom. I think people want to believe that she was coming from a good place, but what the hell did she think was going to happen? SHE PAID DEVIN TO DATE HER DAUGHTER!! 3 months is long enough to develop feelings. Did she want to see Lilly with a broken heart? She just pissed me off so much.
Okay, so let me back up a bit. Devin lives with his dad and sister and they own an auto shop and live on the same property. His dad sucks at the books and well, they are going to lose both the shop and the house if they don't come up with the money in 90 days. Devin ends up at the bank asking for an extension and he runs into Lilly's mom who offers him a proposition. She'll pay off his loan if he dates her daughter for 90 days.
Devin is this hottie playboy, but it's an offer he can't refuse--he has to save his family home and shop. There's no way he'd develop feelings for a fat girl. Yeah, well little by little Lilly cracks his walls and the playboy falls hard.
It was so beautiful to watch. However, I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Boy, did it ever. I was crushed. Did I mention I hate her mother?
I absolutely LOVED Lilly. Hot damn, I wish I could be like her. Strong, confident, NICE and sweet, selfless, beautiful, and the perfect woman. My heart ached for what happened to her. I wanted to throw up reading it. Mean girls. They make me sick. When Lilly first meets Devin at the cafe and he asks her what kind of guy he is I bawled. The last sentence killed me. I know that insecurity and it hurts my heart.
Did the boys that tried to rape Jenny and beat the shit out of Lilly ever go to jail?
I could not get enough of Jenny. I freakin' loved her. She was so funny and I loved how she accepted Lilly into the family so easily and called her for stuff.
Overall, fantastic story. My only complaint I wish Devin would have told Lilly sooner! I don't understand why he held it off. Honesty is the best policy, right? Oh and I wanted Lilly to punch Renee in the face and break her nose again.
