Summary

Personal trainer Rebecca McCall is furious when her coworker is sidelined and she's forced to teach the “Be Your Best Bride” class. As if being a size two for your wedding photos is all for which exercise is good. Could the whole thing get more vain and sexist? 

The class is full of preening, giggling bridezillas, but one woman stands out: the one who confesses she's only there because her fiancée signed her up. Who does that to someone about whom they care? And why can't Rebecca take her eyes off her?  

Spencer Thompson is a second-guesser. After making the worst mistake of her life, she's happy to abdicate responsibility and let other people make her decisions for her. She's always felt a little bit too soft, a little bit too curvy in all the wrong places. Her fiancée apparently agrees because she signed Spencer up for a class at the gym. 

Terrified by the online profile of the instructor, the epitome of zero body fat, Spencer is relieved to find someone new, and realistic-looking, leading the class. Except the instructor seems to hate her, and Spencer has no idea why.    

When a perfectly innocent post-workout smoothie leads to an earth-shattering kiss, Rebecca wonders if she's been wrong all along, and Spencer is challenged to make another decision that could change her life forever.

Could not finish

I struggled to get into this book because of the awful narration.. I felt the story was read with very little commitment.

Good story

The story was a little drawn out , the narrator was awesome and very believable, good pace and gentle on the ear, and great voices.
I really enjoyed it , I would of hoped to hear more about the development of their relationship and how it grew into an equal partnership.

Spoiler alert!!!!!

I finished this book 16 hours ago and it's taken me this long to decide what I want to say here. During the entire book I kept thinking, "OMG this is one of the best books. I am gonna leave a hella review." When the book was done, I wasn't sure that was still the case. This is the second book in 3 days that I have listened to by this narrator. I actually searched her because the other book was done so well. She did not disappoint during this book. She was fantastic. The characters were lovable and you could just feel the chemistry between them. The other characters were just as lovable and added to the story nicely. Here is my issue. You keep watching the chapters go by and its Spencer not choosing. They are together once, and it's brief. As the book ending is drawing near you think, "Dear God are they not going to get together?" They do, but its in the final page. You never get to see them together, happy or not. There is no view of them with each other or declarations of love. I loved this book but that fact, and the fact that Spencer had a chance to choose and she chose the other woman, left an unexpected bad taste in my mouth. Suddenly I went from loving it, to being pretty disappointed in the fact she didn't choose the main love interest, but it was chosen for her.

Excellent Audio!

I really enjoyed The Shape of You by Georgia Beers. Yes, the reason for the class is border line insulting to all women. But fortunately Trainer Rebecca manages to make the class enjoyable and informative for all. Lori Prince does an excellent job with the narration.

Boot Camp for Brides.

A get in shape class for brides to be becomes an awakening for Spencer Thompson. Rebecca McCall is not happy about teaching the class but finally revised it to her liking. A great story about fitness and finding yourself. Great performance.

GB does it again!!!

I'm a Georgia Beers fan to the end!!I've enjoyed every book I read of hers and this one was no disappointment! I lived the chemistry between the characters and the funny bits as well. I especially like the girl power theme throughout the entire book! I'm not sure the right decisions were always made at the right times but it was very realistic and remiscient of life's messiness. Overall, excellent book with a great narrator!

Another Amazing Georgia Beers Audiobook!

I absolutely loved this audiobook! I loved the story, the narration, the characters, and I'd missed Georgia's witty dialogue. there's not a complicated plot, just real situations for each character to deal through. At 1 point in the book I was worried that the main characters wouldn't end up together. I vowed if that happened I was going to message Georgia Beers and tell her... but the ending was perfect! this really was one of those audiobooks I wish I could finish in one day. This may be my 2nd fav GB book (a Little Bit of Spice is my fav. Get immediately if you've never listened). Thanks, Georgia Beers and Lori Prince for making my work days better :)

Quick listen!

Once I started listening, I didn’t stop until it was finished! Lori does a good job bringing Georgia’s characters to life. The love story has just about everything you want. I think you’ll enjoy Rebecca & Spencer’s story! I did!!!

Bodies and Exercise

What a story! Wow wow wow! Georgia outdid herself with this one! The ending was totally unexpected and the narration was great!! I was glad to see a book about body size as most lady love books are always displaying the perfect body and fit! Wish there was a sequel as usual! Great read, story and characters! Once again Ms Beers has done it again! Get this book it’s awesome!
