Do you have any others that you are thinking of using?

It's not that I don't like it, but when I hear The Beauty Within, I don't see Tyler and Gunner. I see Addy and Eric.

But that is just me. If the title floats your boat, then go for it!

Addy and Eric? Really? Why those two? I chose The Beauty Within for Gym Story because both of them have had to deal with outward beauty--Gunnar because he is and Tyler because she thinks she isn't. And both of them misjudged each other based on those outward appearances, but both also learned that it is the beauty within people that really draws the soul. But I mean, titles change all the time; definitely not set in stone yet!

To be honest...
I think I actually like Gym Story. It's unique and it makes you want to explore the story because the title is so simple but in actuality, it's more complex than that.

It's just a very interesting title that I think would stand out from all the other cliche titles that you often see in the romance genre.

Am I making any sense?

hrmle . . .

Confession: I'd entertained the thought myself, but since I doubt it'll stick, I need to come up with alternatives. Especially since much of the action doesn't even take place in the gym, but rather Tyler's barbershop! But . . . it does appeal :).

What ever name you use for the title, whether it's Gym Story or Beauty Within, I can't wait to purchase this book.
