    chapter one

     

    The gym is supposed to be my safe place. The place I de-stress, reenergize, and ponder random wonders and mysteries, like: how was I delusional enough to think I could rock a middle hair part circa 2011?

     

    That's why I'm equal parts horrified and appalled that my Tinder rebound, Joe, has sprung onto the treadmill to my right.

     

    I brace myself for an awkward, clunky greeting, but thankfully, his attention appears fixed on the treadmill's touch pad. As he presses the dial to increase his speed, I catch a whiff of eau de wet dog. He not-so-subtly glances in my direction before averting his eyes.

     

    Sure, Tinder Joe was kind enough to order me an Uber after our lackluster quarter-night stand two weeks ago. But it's highly coincidental we'd end up at the same gym, in all of Boston. I wonder if he's stalked me. Maybe I blew his mind in bed? So much so he went FBI on my ass, located my gym, and staged a casual run-in? Given my social media presence, it isn't out of the realm of possibility.

     

    At every opportunity, Dad warns me of the dangers of posting my whereabouts on Instagram, lest I be kidnapped and sold into sex slavery, Taken style. Except Dad is no Liam Neeson. He doesn't have "special skills," aside from his legendary sesame chicken recipe. And so long as the Excalibur Fitness Center continues to sponsor my membership in exchange for promotion on my Instagram, I'm willing to risk it.

     

    Tinder Joe and I lock eyes once again as I catch my breath post-sprint interval. Our shared gaze lasts two seconds longer than comfortable and I can't help but notice how his perfectly coifed boy-band hair remains suspiciously intact with each giraffe-like stride. Whether he stalked me here or not, my first instinct is to flee the scene.

     

    So I do.

     

    I take refuge in the Gym Bro Zone, aka the strength-training area.

     

    As a gym regular, I exchange respectful nods with the other patrons as I enter. A familiar crowd of 'roid-pumping frat boys loiters near the bench presses while simultaneously chugging whey protein shakes like they're on the brink of dehydration. Today, they're donning those cringey neon tank tops that hang too low under their armpits. To their credit, they're nothing if not devoted to their daily routines. And after catching a glimpse of my sweaty, tomato-faced self in the wall-to-wall mirror under harsh fluorescent lighting, I'm not in any position to judge.

     

    A guy man-splaying on the bench press grunts excessively, chucking a set of dumbbells to the floor with a loud thud. Normally this would grind my gears, but I'm too busy bounding toward a majestic sight to care. My treasured squat rack is free. Praise be.

     

    The window squat rack is one of exactly two racks in this facility. It boasts a scenic view of a grungy nightclub across the street, a long-rumored front for a murderous motorcycle gang. The natural light is optimal for filming my workouts, especially compared to the alternative-the rack cloaked in shadow next to the men's changeroom, which permanently reeks of Axe body spray.

     

    The window rack is close enough to the industrial-size fan to let me savor a stiff breeze mid-sweat, but not close enough that I'll succumb to wind-induced hypothermia. It's also in the prime position for gawking at the television, which, for unknown reasons, is cruelly locked to the Food Network. I worship this squat rack the way Mother Gothel regards Rapunzel's magic hair. It gives me life. Vigor. Four sets of squats and I'll be high on endorphins for at least a day,...

    DEBUT Gymstagrammer and personal trainer Crystal Chen is infuriated when firefighter Scott Ritchie steals a weight machine out from under her when she'd obviously indicated it was being used. Crystal won't be pushed around or taken advantage of, and after her recent disastrous breakup, she also doesn't care about the chemistry between her and "the squat rack thief"--until she marches into the men's changing room to give him a piece of her mind and ends up kissing him brainless instead. Crystal is prepared to pretend it never happened, but a family wedding unexpectedly brings her back together with Scott. In the process of making peace, they begin to fall in love. Lea's steamy debut romance features well-developed, likable characters with slow-build chemistry. The secondary characters and the backstories create believable motivations for the protagonists' realistic actions and reactions. The leisurely plot is issue-oriented: it discusses the lasting repercussions of childhood abuse, the reality of being mixed race and curvy in a world that rewards skinny whiteness, and the downsides of the body positivity movement. VERDICT Hand this one to fans of Helen Hoang and Talia Hibbert. Recommended for general purchase.--Heather Miller Cover, Homewood P.L., AL

    Lea debuts with a heartwarming rom-com centered on body positivity. Crystal Chen, a plus-size fitness influencer and personal trainer, has built her online brand on self-love, emphasizing that the gym is for everyone, regardless of shape or size. One day, she’s having a good workout until an attractive “gym bro” blatantly ignores her clear dibs on the squat rack. Scott Ritchie, aka “Squat Rack Thief,” is a firefighter, a devoted dog dad, and, despite first impressions, a good guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. Both tension and lust rise between him and Crystal during repeated run-ins at the gym—making it a shock when they’re reintroduced at their respective grandparent’s engagement party. With the nuptials fast approaching, Crystal and Scott get to know one another on a deeper level and passion ignites. But when Crystal introduces her new boyfriend to her followers, internet trolls test their budding romance. Lea’s prose is clear, witty, and powerful, delivering an ode to all those who struggle with self-acceptance. While the pacing lags a bit in the second half, the cute pop culture references, hilarious supporting characters, and sensual love scenes make up for it. Lea is a writer to watch.

    Crystal Chen has an Instagram account celebrating her fit, curvy figure. She films at the gym and is soon irritated by a guy who always takes the equipment she wants to use and seems to enjoy provoking her. Then she learns that his grandpa is marrying her grandma and that fire fighter Scott is actually pretty great. She isn't sure about dating him, but they soon give in to their strong chemistry. A backlash of reaction from her followers after she posts the first picture of herself with handsome Scot results in her revisiting her insecurities that reach back to her teens. Lea's debut romance is a terrific rom-com that offers an essential message about accepting oneself, and it is a pleasure to read. The strong yet insecure Crystal is a memorable, layered character, and Scott is very appealing and quintessentially human. A subplot about their grandparents' wedding is clever and provides an evocative parallel for Crystal and Scott. Fans of Jennifer Weiner may enjoy this, and all who read it will look forward to more romance from Lea.

    Competitive gym users go from enemies to lovers. Curvy Chinese American "fitstagrammer" Crystal Chen can't stand the new Chris Evans look-alike at her gym, especially since he's been violating workout etiquette: ignoring signs that a rack has been claimed by another person, hogging the water fountain, and getting in the way of her training sessions with clients, not to mention blocking her camera as she's recording her exercise routines. Then she's caught off guard when a heated exchange about her cellphone--she thinks he stole it to get on her nerves--turns into a make-out session in the men's locker room. But Crystal has a bigger surprise in store when she finds out that her grandmother has gotten engaged and that her intended is the grandfather of the Squat Rack Thief, aka Scott Ritchie, Boston firefighter. To make matters worse, Scott may have a girlfriend, a figure skater. Despite the many bumpy starts, Scott and Crystal finally get past their initial misunderstandings to explore the romantic sparks between them. It seems like the perfect relationship for the homebody, gym-loving duo--till Crystal's fear of being cheated on rears its head. Just as the couple tackle that issue, Crystal's carefully constructed sense of identity comes crashing down thanks to online fatphobia. In this debut novel, author Lea explores the challenges of a woman learning to respect herself while realizing that the social media version of body positivity, though the core of her Instagram brand and philosophy, may not be the ideal route to happiness. With some amusing dad jokes and come-on lines, several steamy and romantic sex scenes, and nonstereotyped portrayals of a biracial family, the novel has real promise. But a first-person narrative that dwells on the heroine's hang-ups may not be everyone's cup of tea, and Crystal's judgmental behavior toward others also clashes with her criticism of those who resort to reductive stereotypes. Though Crystal works to overcome the paradox and her internal dialogue and Instagram posts about body identity and White beauty standards earn her points, the drama feels a bit drawn out. A rom-com that tries to hit serious notes about sizeism, racism, sexism, and online toxicity.
