Book Review: Fit For The Job – Darien Cox

Fit For The JobBlurb: When fitness professional Jay Capello is unexpectedly offered the job of training a movie star’s teenage daughter for the summer, he thinks he’s scored a fairly cushy gig.

But once let inside the locked gates of the actor’s residence, he begins to realize he’s been dropped into a web of family secrets, and the unconventional challenges of this assignment may be more than he can handle.

When he starts to fall for Bodie, the girl’s personal security guard, he tries to stick with it, and his simple summer commitment becomes a struggle to perform his job duties without losing his heart in the process.


I thought the whole story was awfully long with its thinly veiled plot. The beginning was a bit interesting although the pacing was uber-slow that I’m almost skimming through it. Midway, it became almost unbearable because of its predictability. I kept on turning the pages because I just want to get over Sassy’s histrionics and I when I got to her dealio – I was like, that’s it???! It’s a snooze-fest of a story. The book does not offer anything new. There were unnecessary scenes [mostly prolonged sex scenes] which made the story even more flat.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
