Kurzbeschreibung

OAKLAND HILLS, BOOK #1
The world of fitness apparel isn't ready for Beverly Lewis. She hates the gym, is nice to everybody, and shops at Ross Dress for Less. When she's not teaching preschool, she's wearing yoga pants . . . to nap in. So when she inherits her estranged grandfather's fitnesswear company in San Francisco, nobody expects her to keep it. Fite Fitness needs a heartless suit to save it from bankruptcy, not a thirty-year-old woman who cries when her students leave for kindergarten.

Someone like Liam Johnson. A former Olympic swimmer, Liam is Fite's executive vice president. Unlike Bev, he's devoted his life to Fite's success. Managing one little preschool teacher—and his attraction to her—shouldn't be an issue. Right?

But Bev's tired of being underpaid and underrated, and refuses to step aside as an obedient figurehead. To everyone's shock and horror, she moves up to San Francisco, sets up an office, and dives into the business. Nothing—not mockery, not exercise, not sabotage, not a disastrously hot night with her aggravating VP—is going to scare her away.

As Liam realizes she's tougher than she looks, he discovers that losing Fite might not be nearly as bad as losing her . . .

A story about the pursuit of love, happiness, and the perfect yoga pants, Love Handles will speak to anyone who's ever had to face what scares her most.

Warning: contains at least two loves scenes and a happy ending.

I'm not ready to leave a long review, but I did want to give credit where credit is due. I loved this book. It's engaging, witty, has well-rounded characters and a plotline that flows easily. I highly recommend it and I'm looking forward to reading more by Gretchen Galway.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love Handles Kindle Edition 25. Februar 2012
Von Steph S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I recieved a copy of this book and I am so glad I did, the main characters are as opposite as can be. Beverly is a woman who inherits her grandfathers fitness clothing business and knows nothing about it and tries to figure out why he did this but she is tired of her life and job and goes about trying to make a success of it. Bev is the type woman who could care less about fitness fashion and is more comfortable in sweats from a discount store. Liam is a VP of the company is all about making this company a success and will do whatever it takes to make it work. Liam feels he will have no problem handling Bev...until they become involved...then both their worlds change completely as much as they fight it the picture becomes all too clear. This is a relaxing read and great to see chicks rule I did enjoy it

4.0 von 5 Sternen unexpectedly fun read 4. Juni 2011
Von Mrs. Anthrope - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this on a recommendation from a friend when I was looking specifically for fun, stressless reading, and I am pleased to say I would certainly recommend it for anyone looking for a little adult summer chick lit with actual character development and plot. While romance is normally not my genre, I really enjoyed this and look forward to seeing more from the author. The heroine is believable and likable, with enough flaws to make her real, and the plot had enough twists in it that I was genuinely surprised on several occasions (full disclosure here: I am also frequently surprised by children's literature and Pixar movies. Apparently I have a goat's ability to detect foreshadowing.)

I am hoping the author might feel encouraged to branch out a bit; she has a natural flare for writing. This is one reader who is interested to see what else she can do.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun contemporary romance 26. September 2011
Von twinsmom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
They say opposites attract and in "Love Handles" they certainly do. Bev Lewis, preschool teacher and self-professed "nice" person, inherits her recently deceased and long-time estranged grandfather's failing fitness wear company. Liam Johnson was his right-hand man and like a son to him, or so he thought, until he found himself left out of his will. Regardless, Liam loves Fite like it's his own company and can't bear to see it continue to fail, which he figures will happen for sure if a woman with no business experience at all takes the helm. He's convinced that he can get Bev to leave the running of the company in his capable hands. Recently out of a job, Bev wants to take on this new challenge and turn her grandfather's company around, but she knows she can't do it without Liam's expertise. Neither one expected to like the other, let alone be so attracted.

This was a fun contemporary romance with two very likeable main characters. While trying to prove herself to her family and save her company, Bev finds an inner strength that she never knew she had and Liam, while getting to know Bev, finds his softer side. Together they make a great pair. I wouldn't necessarily call this a romantic comedy, as I didn't find myself laughing, but it is definitely a solid romance.

If I could make one constructive criticism, it would be that someone re-proofread the book, as I found multiple typos throughout. These are not something that would be caught with spell-check, but they might with a grammar check. Most of the time it was a spelling error that resulted in a different (but real) word (like "his" instead of "this"). However sometimes it was a missing word like "the") or other small grammatical errors. These mistakes didn't bother me nor do I feel they detracted from the story in any way, but I thought they should be mentioned in case it bothers some readers.

All in all I really enjoyed reading this book and would definitely read more by this author.

**Please note that I received a free copy of this book through another website but writing a review was not a requirement of receiving the copy.**
