The Scale (Martha's Way 1) by Mika Jolie

This is one of the of the best romances I've read in a LONG TIME. I loved it! It's brilliant and even writing a review will not give it justice, but I'll try. Just get it because it's that good, positive and uplifting with a good ending. It’s also funny at times.

About the story

Most women (or me) can all relate to Minka, the main female character, who like most of us, defines herself by her flaws/issues - a few pounds overweight, insecurity about her body, confidence issues (which thanks goodness doesn't stop her from jumping into bed with Jason) and loves her glass of wine with a nice dessert, and likes to feel sorry for herself at times. And she is supposedly in love with an old college crush - the one she thinks that got away (you’ll need to read the book for more details). So we can all relate to her in one way or another, including her stubbornness in clinging to those issues and using them as an excuse not to get on with her life or even make the way for true love.

The story starts when she goes for her 'perfect twin' sister's wedding where she meets the best man - the awesome Jason -, who can't get enough of her (I can't get enough of him either, the dude is so yummy!). Geez, this book is so hot that at times I had to fan myself to cool down. It's also very hard to put down! The writing is so seductive!

Alpha male Jason is hotness defined and he's really into Minka. He's ticked all the right boxes - handsome, great body, sexy, hardworking both physically and mentally. He's also respectful to women in a bad boy way. He has plenty of brains with brawn/muscles. He is the perfect – in that yummy hot bad boy way.

They do get it together, which is pretty explosive, but the road to true love is never easy. Minka like the rest of us likes to have her cake and eat.

Without giving much away, the question is will Minka cling on to her issues and flaws and  let them continue to define her or will she will give Jason a chance? It sounds simple, but Minka is a stubborn and strong willed woman and so may need to learn some life lessons before that happens.

Overall Mika Jolie does a great job is telling this story and it’s well worth reading.
