Love Handles 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...

    Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men - with disastrous consequences. Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself. When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments - and hidden talents.

    Serial temp worker April Johnson is nothing like her wildly successful brothers. She doesn't have an Olympic gold medal. She doesn't have millions in the bank from a tech company she founded as a teenager. She doesn't even have a place to live, not since her boyfriend snuck off in the middle of the night - skipping out on the rent, his three-legged dog, and her. Now forced to move back home with her mother and grovel for a job from one of her brothers, April decides it's past time she got serious about her life.

    Tech entrepreneur Sly has a portfolio of lucrative San Francisco Bay Area start-ups, but while his financial options are unlimited, his romantic options are anything but.
