TAKE THE LEAP
She's got her feet planted on the ground. He'll teach her to fly.
Jessica, a curvy, driven, neat freak lawyer, is ecstatic when she finally gets her dream job—even though it's taking her away from her hometown. When she meets over-the-top, man-mountain Mikey, a fitness buff and veterinarian with a messy life in all senses of the word, she thinks she just walked into the second-most exciting adventure of her life.
His larger-than-life personality fascinates her, but also shakes the foundations of her quiet, introverted self, knocking her off-kilter. It's a bad idea to let him take her on as a weight-loss client. It's an even worse idea to get involved with him since he's her manwhore roommate...and she's seen him in action.
If they give into their undeniable attraction, is it just a train wreck waiting to happen? Or will their desire fuel a chance at real love?
If you love steamy romance, be sure to check out the fourth standalone in the Giving You series.

5 deliciously voluptuous stars for THE GROUND BENEATH OUR FEET!
When Jessica Torres gets a job offer in Santa Barbara, she's very hesitant to leave her needy mama and established, if boring, life. In a wild moment, she decides to take it, and soon she's moving in with veterinarian, personal trainer and adrenaline junkie Mikey Tate. Their first meeting is a bit…awkward, but the two become fast friends and Jessica is able to convince him to help her lose weight.
Mikey is immediately smitten with the gorgeous, curvalicious Jessica, and wants nothing more than to help her feel good and confident in her own skin. With Mikey, Jessica finally comes into her own, for the first time feeling like a strong, desirable woman capable of capturing (and keeping) the attention of a sexy, funny man. But the two of them both battle their own addictions, is it possible that they'll be good for each other in the long run?
I don't know how Leslie McAdam manages to give you…so much…in an book! THE GROUND BENEATH OUR FEET is the fourth offering in the Giving You… series, of which every single book is worth devouring. Usually I am NOT a fan of stories that focus on a woman's weight, however this was different and I can't pinpoint why. Jessica most certainly worried about her weight almost to the exclusion of everything else, but I absolutely loved that everyone in Jessica's life encouraged her, supported her and told her she was gorgeous as she was.
Mikey, even though the name drove me nuts, was simply fabulous. Sweet, sexy, dirty, passionate, messy, an adrenaline junkie who lived life balls to the wall (for his own reasons which are eventually exposed). In the end, this book is as much about Jessica learning to love herself as it was about learning to love Mikey. I can't wait for more from the incredibly talented Ms. McAdam!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
