LaToya Jenkins is the quintessential woman: smart, successful, grounded and determined. She only has one problem socially — she’s overweight. As the ‘big one’ of her girlfriends, she often faces rejection from the men of their social circle because of her size and/or dark skin. And due to a painful past relationship, she gives up on love completely until, she takes on Mitchell ‘Mitch’ O’Keefe as a new client.
The Irish born architect needs a professional cleaning service to help him literally clean up his life after a nasty divorce, but he winds up finding a true friend in LaToya, the owner of ‘Its An Honour Cleaning Service.’
While LaToya is handicapped emotionally by her baggage, Mitch thinks she’s the strongest woman he’s ever seen and a breath of fresh air in his hectic life. His only goal is to prove to her that his interest in her is more than lust sparked by curiosity.
MY BOOK REVIEW:
In addition to my remarks in the video above, for such a short book every aspect was included that would draw the reader into the story, and the issues faced was pragmatic enough. I enjoyed the characters personalities and the fact that they exhibited flawed traits that make them all too human. The twists within the plot was more than one, so the ending of the book wasn’t cliqued but it was still tinged with a little sadness. Overall a must read if you haven’t already read it!!
