‘A feel-good, uplifting read’ USA Today

‘A heartfelt, hopeful, and humorous exploration of the importance of learning to love yourself . . . a joy to read’ Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

‘Reading a body positive book with a curvy women of colour who is a leading lady and NOT a sidekick, made me smile ear-to-ear. Savvy is a talented, compassionate, intelligent and fully developed character who made me stand up and cheer!’ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Savvy Sheldon spends a lot of time tiptoeing around the cracks in her life: her high-stress and low-thanks job, her clueless boyfriend and the falling-apart kitchen she inherited from her beloved grandma-who taught her how to cook. But when Savvy’s world starts to crash down around her, she knows it’s time for some renovations.

Starting from the outside in, Savvy tackles her crumbling kitchen, her relationship with her body, her work-life balance (or lack thereof) and, last but not least, her love life.

But as any home-renovation-show junkie can tell you, something always falls apart during renovations. First, Savvy passes out during hot yoga. Then it turns out that the contractor she hires is the same sexy stranger she unintentionally offended by judging based on appearances. Worst of all, Savvy can’t seem to go anywhere without tripping over her ex and his latest “upgrade.”

Maybe Savvy should’ve started her renovations the other way around: beginning with how she sees herself before building a love that lasts . . .

A sexy and heart-pounding romantic comedy that will make you stand up and cheer! Fans of Talia Hibbert, Ali Hazelwood and Jesse Sutanto won’t be able to resist Savvy Sheldon Feels Good As Hell.

Readers still aren’t over Savvy Sheldon:

I love plus-size positive love stories and it seems like there are so many coming out recently that I really need to catch up! This was definitely worth the read and I’ll be reading more of McCoy in the future!’ Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

SAVVY SHELDON FEELS GOOD AS HELL was wonderful! I adored Savvy from page 1, and her journey to self love was wonderful to read. The food descriptions in this book!!! I caught myself cooking while reading because it made me so hungry. Plus her connection with Spencer was electric! I loved this one and can’t wait for McCoy’s next!’ Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What a great story! I loved Savvy and I also loved Spencer, a man who ended up being much more than Savvy’s contractor. Factor in a lot of tennis, a lot of cooking, and Savvy fighting the insecurities she had with her appearance, and Savvy Sheldon Feels Good as Hell left me with a feel-good feeling‘ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another one to add to the favourites pile! I loved Savvy and getting to be alongside her on her journey to self-discovery!’ Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘LOVEDDDDD IT!!!!’ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘I was enamoured with Taj’s McCoy’s debut. Savvy goes on one heck of a self-love journey post-breakup and I was cheering for her the whole way. Add a steamy romance into the mix and my heart sang as I tore through this book. This feel-good, empowering romcom will blow you away, guaranteed‘ Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is a unique book that I think a lot of women, young and old alike will benefit from reading. It has a wonderful message wrapped up in a love story, full of affirmations for Black women especially, and an MC who everyone will want to root for. I read it in one sitting and couldn’t recommend it more!’ Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
