    1. Bear with me, my English is having a meltdown and I have to do this story justice.This story was lovely.Two lonely guys found each other when they need it the most, both characters have very low self esteem, the fact is that they don't rate themselves very highly and they are always thinking that others won't either. Past boyfriends did a number on them, and it's hard to see themselves as someone worth it.I don't have low self esteem, never had, so I love to read books about this topic to unders [...]

    2. This book was sweet and cute. Sam is alone and feeling vulnerable, after a difficult time with an ex, and then a break up, he has spent his time comfort eating, and his self-confidence is at an all time low. His doctor advises that he needs to eat better and exercise to lose weight, so he takes the plunge and joins the locals gym. Luke is one of the training instructors at the gym, and he immediately appeals to Sam, but it isn't until he discovers Luke one day, having had his phone stolen that t [...]

    3. I came upon this book when I was just looking for a light filler between two bigger commitment books. It completely hit the spot. To be fair, this book is probably more of a 3 star read. It had a fair share of editing mistakes and was fairly formulaic. However, I really loved the main characters. I loved them and their story enough to bump it up a star. The vulnerability they displayed and the awkwardness of a new relationship made for compelling reading, and I felt like the author did an amazin [...]

    4. This book was very timely in my life because I finally went to the gym for the first time all year this past Sunday. Did it motivate me to continue? Time will tell, I'm such a lazy bastard. This was a sweet story and very realistic.I have to assume this was based in the UK but I wished we were told the country. I did like how the author mentioned Sam putting on deodorant and cologne because so many other books have their characters just shower and then put on clothes. Don't they moisturize? Use [...]

    5. There is something about the overweight, insecure guy that just pulls my heart strings. Yes, it got a little frustrating that he continually couldn't believe Luke would want him, but I get it! It was a nice twist that both men were just as emotionally damaged by their exes. No real angst, just a slow coming together.

    6. I thought it was a sweet story and I enjoyed reading about Sam and Luke they were sweet together. I always tell people no matter what your size we all have issues. Being smaller does not make your issues go away. You can have low self esteem at any size, the same goes for confidence.

    7. I think my expectations for this one were too high. What kept me from liking as much as I expected to was the way the protagonist, Sam, pinned so much on Luke. (view spoiler)[When Luke turns him down for a date, Sam spirals into a severe eating binge. As a comfort eater, I totally get that. But, I was hoping he could learn something about himself and his relationship with food and figure out how to break the unhealthy cycle. Instead, he only comes out of the spiral when Luke accepts his invitati [...]

    8. 3.5I believe there are a lot of people around the world who can totally understand the unpleasant situation Sam, the MC, is in. A bit too rounded, with health issues knocking at the door and lack of love life (all of these because of his bad eating habits) he is forced to choose whether to continue walking this disastrous path or grab a hold of his own life and make something good out of it.His good intentions to finally change things for better lead him to a local gym and are soon rewarded, whe [...]

    9. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this story, it's nice to read a book set near where I was born. The characters are good and well thought out although I thought Luke was immature considering he was 23/24. He acted like someone much younger. I liked the storyline with Sam wanting to improve his health and get fit. I only wish my gym membership was as cheap as Sam's and had bottled water included!! The description of Sam's awkwardness in going to the gym for the first few times is so true. I think we've all bee [...]

    10. Now I love a book about real sized people. Not the model type, but the bit overweight, average looking person, who falls in love. And because the person one is inside the outer shell, one looks naturally for some eye candy, knowing that one never has a chance. But is that true? Do good looking people ignore others? Or do they have their own insecurities, like everyone else? It makes a good read to find out.

    11. Super cute, short read. I really liked this one. For anyone to know what it's like to have insecurities and to try and work passed them. I'm glad these two found love together and it goes to show that you don't have to be perfect to find love. Very cute

    12. I really lived this short read. It was so relatable for me. It's so sweet I couldn't help but love it. It's a great read and definitely recommend for a short read.

    13. Great short story. We all suffer from something and this was a great story of dealing with weight. I really enjoyed this.

    14. A short story about Sam and Luke, one an overweight bakery shop manager, the other a trainer at the local gym in Peterborough. Both 23, both recovering from bad relationships, both with low self-esteem.A promising situation quite well-realised.Sam seems older than 23, Luke a shade younger but that might be to do with different family backgrounds as Sam lives independently of his parents, while Luke is still at home with his Mum and brother.The plot revolves around their growing trust in each oth [...]

    15. Hungry For Love by Louise Lyons is a short story about Sam and Luke. Sam works as an assistant manager of a bakery and Luke is a trainer who works at the Gym Sam goes to in order to get healthier. Each of them have their own past issues with relationships and fears of being hurt. Coming together they help the other overcome their issues. This is a sweet MM romance. I enjoyed the fact that there were characters who weren't portrayed as being perfect. The fact that Sam isn't some buff perfect man [...]

    16. Hungry For Love This is a tough one for me for several reasons. Maybe 2.5 stars, but I'm not sure. The blurb had a lot of promise, and really drew me in. It's always nice to have an MC who isn't perfectly toned with washboard abs and a beautiful face. And since I've read a book about a character getting fit a little while ago and really enjoyed it, I gave this a try. But I was also sceptical, and I'm afraid, I was right. At least a little. The problem with this kind of storyline is the fine line [...]

    17. I purchased this book for free from All Romance Ebooks. After a bad breakup, Sam Wilkinson turned to food for comfort, eventually landing him in the doctor’s office because of dizzy spells and breathlessness. When his doctor says he needs to lose weight for his own health, Sam joins the local gym and meets Luke Walker; fitness trainer. The pair are attracted to each other but Sam is convinced no man could ever want him again and Luke has past issues with a cheating ex. Will these two be able t [...]

    18. This is a very good story. It is well written and relate-able. I've since read more from Louse Lyons and love her stories and characters.When Sam Wilkinson visits the doctor after experiencing breathlessness and dizzy spells, he receives the news that his weight is putting his health at risk. With instructions to choose healthier meals, and get some exercise, he makes efforts to change things for the better. Sam joins his local gym, and discovers exercise isn’t as bad as he’d feared—especi [...]

    19. I really liked this short story. Sam felt very real to me. His talking himself into and out of things. The way he justified his failures and down played his achievements. It sounded like several people I know that struggle with food and weight. His self esteem has been pulverized and letting Luke in little by little takes courage. Luke too has to rebuild his confidence after having it trashed by his ex. There are a few stumbling moments getting their relationship going but it flourishes once it [...]

    20. I have a thing for heroes who aren't perfect :) Sam was just adorable with his hang-ups, his low self-esteem and the way he was ashamed of his looks. He's so real, especially when he gives in to his cravings and falls back into old habits.And Luke, the poor guy is the perfect pretty man, but it didn't do him any good with his bastard of an ex. Both MCs have their issues, but together they are a cute couple. I loved the way their relationship built slowly. It wasn't a smooth journey, but it wasn' [...]

    21. Very sweet and relatableMost of us share the same type of insecurity that Sam feels and feeling embarrassed the first time you go to the gym. Also most suffer from a toxic relationship where you are made to less then you are. This story shows how Luke and Sam get past their feeling of inadequacy and see each other as the men that are at heart. This story was sweet and funny.t touching
