What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
What’s a comic book nerd to do when she’s dumped by her not-quite-a-superhero fiancé just weeks before the wedding? Tempting as it is to drown her sorrows in ice-cream, Dakota decides that maybe she’ll keep that appointment with the personal trainer who was going to help her squeeze into her dress after all.
She soon realizes that while she’s not quite ready to ditch her Avengers T-shirt for a Spandex crop top just yet, being at the gym does have some perks. Like semi-stalking Zane, the cute blond guy who looks a lot like Thor…
But while Zane may not be a Norse god, he does have a secret. One that brings him closer to Dakota, and brings Dakota closer to danger.
Is Zane the superhero she’s been waiting for her whole life? Will he swoop in and save the day? Or is he the villain whose superpower is the ability to break her heart?
My Thoughts on Operation Fit-ish
This was sweet, but dry. An afternoon read that is kinda charming, though it lacks the substance to make it great.
I liked the FMC, as she’s written in such a way that most will relate to her (bit over weight, kinda geeky) – yet the details of the mystery don’t quite add up…. nor does that actual story. It felt like the narrative stumbled all over the place while introducing side characters that are vapid or one dimensional.
If you are looking for something to pass an hour and make you smile, this is your story.

My Final Verdict on Operation Fit-ish
Sweet, if bland, this is a simple romance that won’t stress the brain – and that seems to be the whole point. It’s meant to be enjoyed, not dissected, presenting a rather charming HEA that will make you smile. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
