Description

Writing is entertaining, engaging, and fast paced with first person narrative from Crystal’s perspective. The plot is interesting and light-hearted with realistic and relatable characters and important topics that we don’t see often in this genre. Set on You is the lighthearted, sweet, and sexy book you’ve been waiting for. Lea’s delightful debut is a funny and poignant look into the power and perils of social media and the strength required to be vulnerable. Set On You beautifully captures the free-falling elation of realizing the person you can’t stand is the person you can’t stand to be without and the chemistry between Scott and Crystal sizzles. The gym has never seemed such a sexy and romantic place as in this book!”—Denise Williams, author of How to Fail at Flirting Fresh, fun, and extremely sexy. Set on You is a romance of unexpected depth.”—Helen Hoang, USA Today bestselling author of The Heart Principle Set on You is the lighthearted, sweet, and sexy book you’ve been waiting for. Lea’s delightful debut is a funny and poignant look into the power and perils of social media and the strength required to be vulnerable. Set On You beautifully captures the free-falling elation of realizing the person you can’t stand is the person you can’t stand to be without and the chemistry between Scott and Crystal sizzles. The gym has never seemed such a sexy and romantic place as in this book!” —Denise Williams, author of How to Fail at Flirting I was afraid of hating Scott at first when he kept stealing dumbbells and workspace of our lovely heroine even though I never say no to sunshine meets the grump troupe. But when we learn more about the characteristics of Scott, we realize he’s also genuine, caring, gold hearted man who can easily empathize with.

Just to add, I did have a few concerns about some of the language used (there was an occasion where PTSD was used as an adjective, for example). I reached out to the author and was told that if these were not cut in the final edit, they would be before the next batch of printing. It was obvious that it wasn’t intended negatively at all – just something to bear in mind if you get a copy from the first printing. You don’t need to be so strong and confident at all the time, Crystal. Even if you’re a trainer. The curvy community doesn’t need you to defend them. We’re perfectly fine. What we need is you to be the best you can be. Chrystal and Scott are both well-developed characters with a lot of depth. Both also have flaws which make them seem even more realistic. Chrystal is confident, kind, strong-willed, competitive, and challenging with trust issues. Scott is arrogant, competitive, thoughtful, and protective. The secondary characters have varying degrees of depth that is applicable for their roles in this story line.Scott is a fire fighter (which is an instant swoon from me) with a grumpy exterior but is really gentle underneath it. I’ve seen a few comments that this book is insta-love, but I would disagree. I think there is a lot of lust at the beginning (the chemistry between them is SO HIGH) as is often the case with enemies to lovers, but we then see that lust change over time to love. I really believed in their romance, and them as a couple. The spice was on point, but the fact there was no scene with the fire pole?? Missed opportunity. the body politics of this book were amazing. oh my god. im usually really wary of romances that have a theme of fitness/weight/gym life, etc bcos the portrayals can be problematic and send the wrong kind of message. i felt like Amy Lea handled the delicate topic with tact and care. it was greatly approached and im glad that it wasn’t the driving force of the book, but it worked alongside the romance and Crystal’s individual journey. My rating would have been higher if it weren't for Crystal's inconsistency. I liked her character, I even loved Scott's character (he's such a sweetheart, seriously), but it wasn't fun when she would invent the dumbest excuses to stay apart. That undecidedness was there just to make the pining longer and it showed. Crystal kept refusing Scott for one reason or another and then still think about his body or about how people on the street would look at them and think they were a couple. It was annoying, not gonna lie. She would also treat Scott badly just because, when he was nothing but kind to her.

Like, calling your golden doodle 'Albus Doodledore' is just... ugh not my humour at all. I would have found it funny 10 years a go maybe but it's such an overused joke. the romcom tropes and cliches were just the right amount. nothing awkwardly OTT that makes you shudder with second hand embarrassment. too many romcoms go full throttle with the cringe and it stifles the authenticity of the book bcos most people don’t act or talk like that (you know, the overly klutzy heroine, for example). so that was the first win of this book for me. I liked the approach, although this book has some mixtures of those self-help books, but not in excess.

It took me most of the book to really see what the actual message of it was, but in the end it was a nice bow on the book as a whole. (Message how I understood it: body positivity all the time is actually not positive at all and it’s very harmful. It can make you think your feelings toward your body aren’t valid if they’re not always positive. Crystal went down this spiral of thinking she needed to feel 100% all the time and realized it wasn’t sustainable. She also realized that was a HUGE part of her platform.) Would I reread this one? No probably not but I had a good time. I will probs read the next book by the author because I’m assuming it’s about her bookstagrammer sister… and I think I need that. Although, is that the healthiest thing for me to read? Idk. This book’s appealing characters and gym-bound setting will resonate with anyone who’s ever mentally cursed a fellow gym-goer for failing to wipe down the machine post-use.” — USA Today I haven’t read a ton of gym based romances, so this was a fun first time! I really liked the body positivity and self love message in the book. It does play a huge role in the story.

Overall, this was an entertaining, appealing, and delightful novel with some humor and laugh out-loud moments as well as some pivotal stressful and emotional times. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. It could be better, but it is an enjoyable read, in which, at some point, we will all identify with some situations. Overall, Set on You is fun, inspiring, feel good, refreshing, original and realistic romcom with fun moments and serious topics. Crystal was the best part of this book. She was truly funny and witty and felt like someone I wanted to be best friends with. I loved her! Amy Lea’s debut Set on You is a swoony, feel-good romcom in its finest form. The prose is comforting as a hug, and the main character Crystal is a certified badass. Lea crafts a sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, and poignant enemies-to-lovers romance between two lovable gym rats in the age of social media with boldness and honesty.” —Sarah Echavarre Smith, author of On LocationThis is a slight enemies-to-lovers romance that starts off with a not-so-cute meet-cute at the gym. Crystal is a curvy fitness influencer who meets a cute guy at her local gym who's unfortunately curt and rude and keeps stealing the equipment she wants to use. Week after week, Crystal and Scott argue and sparks fly until they finally run into each other outside of the gym – and it’s at their grandparents engagement party. Weird, but we’ll go with it.
