The Fastest Way To Fall

Berkley. Nov. 2021. 384p. ISBN 9780593101926. pap. $16. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Blogger Britta Colby hopes her new reporting assignment, an essay about her experiences trying a hot new fitness app, will earn her a features writer position and maybe help her feel more comfortable in her own skin. The FitMe app promises a body-positive, individualized experience, and Britta is surprised at how much she enjoys the fitness challenges the program offers and at how great she’s beginning to feel. Even more enjoyable are her daily online chats with her trainer Wes Lawson, who happens to be FitMe’s CEO. He’s been feeling unfulfilled in the corporate role and thought that getting back to fitness coaching might pull him out of his professional funk. When he starts having less than professional feelings for his newest client, things get complicated. Will Wes and Britta have to choose between their careers and love?
VERDICT Williams’s sophomore effort (after How To Fail at Flirting) is a body-positive, feel-good romance with highly relatable protagonists.
