Summary
Plus-size friends Jayla Carpenter and Bailee Evans have been close since college. But despite their physical similarities, the two couldnt be more different. Bailee is laid-back, happily married, and comfortable in her skin. Jayla, on the other hand, resents the many years that she was fat-shamed and is now obsessed with proving that she is as sexy as skinny chicks. Celebrating her body, she flaunts her extra weight in provocative clothing and enjoys the attention of a long list of random male admirers she meets on a dating site for curvy girls. The fact that her inbox is flooded with requests to hook up affirms Jaylas opinion that a Rubenesque body type is more appealing than a stick figure. But Bailee isnt so sure that Jaylas love life is as gratifying as she professes. She secretly worries that Jayla will end up getting her heart broken, or worse. Her fears are proven true when Jayla is stood up by her latest romantic interest on Valentines Day. Infuriated over the insult, Jayla goes on a man-stealing rampage to prove that she is more attractive and sexier than thin girls. Soon, it becomes clear that no man is off limits, not even her best friends husband. Can a lifelong friendship recover after the ultimate betrayal or are some friends too damaged to keep?
