The Scale by Mika Jolie Review

Twenty-seven year old, African-American, Minka Greene has to endure watching her twin sister marry the man she loves. Her weight is up, and her confidence is down. Not exactly the ideal time to meet the real man of her dreams.

The Scale opens in Martha’s Vineyard with Minka attending Keely and Blake’s engagement party at Martha’s Way, the beautiful inn owned and operated by the tall, blond, tattooed man with the piercing blue eyes. It just so happens Jason Montgomery is also Blake’s childhood friend and the best man. Dealing with a whirl of emotions, Minka faints in Jason’s arms.

When she wakes up naked in Jason’s bed after a night of passion, the Vineyard confirmed bachelor struggling with his own demons and the woman filled with self-doubt and pining for another man are joined in an experience that will change their lives.

WOW! Such a beautiful book!
This is the story of Minka, a women who has self-image issues (I totally relate), but tries her best to be the women that she thinks everyone wants her to be, but erects a wall between her and her family so she can protect herself from their disappointment in her (again, totally relate-able), is trying to get through her sister’s wedding successfully. Jason, the devastatingly handsome best man has issues of his own. After traumatic family issues, Jason vows never to fall in love, but he is very attracted to this just a 2 week hook-up or something more?
I truly fell in love with this book for the first chapter. I related to Minka's self-image issues, I loved that Jason didn't see her weight but saw her. I really became very sucked into to this book and my husband did find me yelling at the book "NO! NO! NO! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!! aaaggghhhhhhh" ermmm I guess to say that I was addicted was understatement I guess
This book is totally relate-able, utterly divine to read, well written and thankfully was not a cliffhanger! I give The Scale a solid 9 out of 10
