Love Handles: A Romantic Comedy | [Gretchen Galway]

Love Handles: A Romantic Comedy

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.

Publisher's Summary

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...

    "This is not a romantic COMEDY!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to a friend if they wanted an contemporary romance to listen to. Howerver, if they wanted a romanctic comedy, then no. The book didn't have much humor in it and much of it wasn't very light, as one would expect with a comedy. It actually had some dark or mean spots through out the story. Not much humor in book at all. Title is very misleading.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    I found the mother and the sister of the main character quite annoying, but that's just how the characters were written. Tanya Eby did a great job with the different character voices.

    "Very entertaining"

    Just the right blend of conflict and happy endings for a good romantic story. Narrator did a excellent job giving each character a different voice.

    "Didn't Particularly Like It"

    By the time I finished it, I was glad. I thought the characters were a little silly as well as the book. Maybe I would have liked it better if I had read it, but not sure. I thought it was rushed in the story and I also I got the feeling that the book was rushed because they put too much into one recording instead of dividing it up as they generally do with a 10 hour book. I've seen it divided in an eight hour book (I think)--I wonder why not on this one.

    Tanya Eby seemed rushed in some of the scenes.

    "Nice and easy to listen to"

    Very nicely done :-) at times a little predictable but on the whole I liked the story and it was presented perfectly.
