LOSING TO WIN
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
Capturing the behind-the-scenes drama of a reality show, this clever romance has snappy dialogue and appealing characters. The small-town setting supplies an eclectic mix of personalities. Losing to Win is a fun read.
Wide receiver Malachi Knight was the love of Carissa’s life, and after he turned pro and proposed, she was certain their future was secure. Unfortunately, Mal was more focused on his career than on Carissa. She left five years ago — with his new Benz — for Belle Haven, La., to teach. When weight-loss show Losing to Win comes to town, the financial boost to storm-damaged Belle Haven convinces Carissa and Mal to participate. The ex-lovers are partnered in a competition that will not only get them physically back into shape but may bring them closure, or even a future together. (DAFINA, Oct., 288 pp., $14.00)
