“Alexander Woodroe has a starring role as Cupid on TV’s biggest show, Gods of the Gates. But the showrunners have wrecked his character, he’s dogged by old demons, and his post-show future remains uncertain. When all that reckless emotion explodes into a bar fight, the tabloids and public agree: his star is falling. Enter Lauren Clegg, the former ER therapist hired to keep him in line. Watching over handsome but impulsive Alex shouldn’t be especially difficult, but the more time they spend together, the harder it gets to keep it professional, especially when she discovers the reasons behind his recklessness. When another scandal lands Alex in major hot water and costs Lauren her job, she’ll have to choose between protecting him and offering him what he really wants–her.” (SELCO Catalog)
Dade’s books are full of heart and honesty, and always end happily ever after. While this book doesn’t deep-dive into the issues surrounding body shaming and stereotyping, it does a good job of discussing the harm parents, partners, and family can have on people by negatively discussing body types. The body-love movement is slowly growing in the romance genre where authors like Dade are reclaiming their narratives and telling stories about plus-sized heroes. Everyone is worthy of love and acceptance, and books like All the Feels make sure that all body types are represented in the world of fiction.
