A controversial, throught-provoking and witty novel about the pursuit of perfection – the perfect appearance, relationship and life, from a young, hot talent.
Sunny Weston is bright, breezy and fun. She is also fat.
Well, less fat that she was. In her pursuit of the perfect figure – and the life to match – Sunny has lost seven stone, with two to go. Yet as her thighs shrink her problems grow. When gorgeous Adrian at work decides that the new streamlined Sunny is the girl for him, she should be thrilled. But then she realises that Adrian loves her looks, not who she is.
The only perfect thing about Cagney James are his put-downs. Cynical funny and old-school cool, he runs an agency that specialises in catching cheating lovers – something he has plenty of experience of.
When Sunny and Cagney meet it’s loathe at first sight. Their hearts are too hard to see that they might have met their match, so they declare war instead. But sparks of anger have a habit of becoming flames of passion …

‘A brilliant tale…Witty and wise’ B Magazine
‘Witty’ GraziaFrom the Author:
This book is the most personal thing I have ever written.
I found it emotionally impossible to write about being overweight when I was overweight. I had to wait until I had lost stones and stones to start this story. Note that I don't use the word 'fat', because 'fat' still sounds like an insult, a sharp slap in the face thrown my way by some guy with a nasty smirk and too much gel in his hair, tossing out insults in some crappy club.
I think that anybody who has ever had an issue with their weight, be it half a stone or several stones, will be able to relate to Sunny, the heroine of The Perfect 10. Sunny is suddenly afforded a strange split screen view of the world, simultaneously seeing it through fat and thin eyes. She blushes and bristles at the change in attitudes towards her, particularly where men are concerned…
But The Perfect 10 is not just about food, or weight, or fat. It's a love story about a girl who has never been in love before, falling in love with a man who doesn't believe in love anymore...I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks, Louise x
