Tara’s ten-year high school reunion is approaching fast, and she’s not ready. She knows it’s shallow, but she wants to set her old classmates on their ears — especially the toxic Ellie, who bullied her in the old days. She has a good job but she needs the whole package if she’s going to make that killer entrance, including having a toned body, a great outfit, and, most importantly, a mouthwatering guy on her arm.
An eventful visit to the gym shows her that she may be able to kill two birds with one stone, as personal trainer Jake Logan turns out to be the perfect eye candy she needs. A course of hard training begins, with Tara eager to impress Jake—but what are his plans? She can’t help noticing that he flirts with all his female clients. There’s one particular client who could ruin all of Tara’s plans—and she’s getting far too close to Tara’s quarry.
When I was a teenager I watched Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion and wondered how my class mates and I would have changed when it came to our reunion. Well, ten years came and went and I didn’t go. Personally, I didn’t want to spend time with people who I didn’t particularly like or who gave me a hard time and equally I wasn’t (by my own standards) impressive enough. So, 17 years on from high school and I am still wondering what it would be like.
Kimberly Dean’s novel High School Reunion seems to me so true to how people think of reunions. They have to be skinny and successful with a great job and a man (or woman) by their side. There was a verisimilitude to her story which I thought was brilliant.
Her main character Tara was very relatable: she is clumsy but desperate to impress. Her name could have been Lisa.
What I didn’t expect when I started reading it was the saucy stuff. Wow. Kimberly Dean writes with unabashed glory and well done to her because I blushed all the way through reading it.
For a light, fun read on a topic that the majority all of us can relate to then pick up High School Reunion.
