I Heart Buck Cooper!!! (Book Review of "Big in Japan"
Buck Cooper is Texan, obese, and invisible to his colleagues. And to the voluptuous Allison Turner, the girl of his dreams, he is way below parr. Buck's entire life is about fitting in, a feat he's been struggling to achieve but has never succeeded. Until serendipity lands him in Japan. Right in the middle of a sumo match.
As his life takes a new turn in a country where being big can mean fame and fortune, Buck must embark on the most dangerous, yet adventurous ride of his life—to find the ultimate meaning of love and acceptance. Even if it means risking his life and giving up everything he has.
Big in Japan by Jennifer Griffith is a must read! I love Jennifer's books, they are always feel good stories and I knew I would like her newest addition. What I didn't expect was to fall in love with a 400 lb Texan who goes to Japan and decides to take up Sumo Wrestling. This book will take the reader into a world of Sumo Wrestling where only the big survive. This aspect of the book alone makes it unique and intriguing. But when you add a character like Buck Cooper to that, your heart grows a little bit bigger to hold this lovable blonde Sumo Wrestler!
I'm not sure how much more I can gush about it. Just read it, you won't be sorry. Even if you don't love Buck Cooper like I do, the story of danger and intrigue set in the sumo world will leave you wanting more.
Be sure to find Big In Japan on Kindle or on Amazon in paperback.
