Set on You


Sassy, warmhearted and sensual, Set on You is a really lovely book about physical fitness and true love coming in all shapes and sizes.

Scott Ritchie is instantly the most annoying man that Crystal Chen has ever met; the cocky firefighter keeps stealing her favorite squat rack.  Crystal, a personal trainer and Instagram influencer, is constantly battling back Opinions from trolls and other online naysayers because she keeps a focus on fitness without highlighting weight loss. She immediately goes head to head with Scott over the rack, push comes to shove, and their one-upmanship contest leads to a playful rivalry.  They’re both horrified to walk into an engagement party and realize that they’re grandchildren of the bride and groom.

Working on their grandparents’ wedding forces them to get to know each other on a personal basis, and the more they know about each other, the bigger their attraction grows.  But those trolls rear their ugly heads again when pictures of Crystal and Scott together go viral.  Can their love withstand the jabs of strangers?

How I love this novel! Set On You has a fabulous heroine, a secretly sweet hero, some great grandparents, a slow-burn romance and a wonderful commentary about the right to be fat and exercise in public.  Crystal and Scott’s romance is delightful – filled with lust but also love, understanding and humor.  It’s one of the best enemies-to-lovers romances I’ve read in a long, long time.

Crystal is sunny and Scott is grumpy, but their relationships with themselves, and their world, are not that easily boiled down and simplified.  I loved them both.  They are fabulous and funny and dedicated to their crafts and lifting – and one another.

The even more charming secondary romance between their grandparents frequently killed me – they steal the show while often leaving Crystal and Scott with their jaws on the ground.

If you’re sensitive to online trolling or bullying, I will say that this probably isn’t the book for you. The way people treat Crystal and Scott is VERY realistic to the kind of bullying that happens online, and it may trigger you if you’ve experienced this sort of bullying yourself.  But if you can endure it, the book is more than worth a looksee. Set on You is sweet, lovely and romantic.

This has one of the best secondary romances I’ve seen in quite a while. The grandparents were just the best.
