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...

4 Solid Stars!

First loved the narration. She really keeps the story alive and not dull.
I am always apprehensive when I know the heroine is a plus size gal. Usually authors like to make them feel bad about them selves. Or the weight is all they talk about.
Sooooo NOT the case in this book. I loved how she was just a normal granted pushed around gal. But it had NOTHING to do with the size of her weight. THANK YOU Gretchen for that.
Oh Liam I wanted to hump his leg through half this book. He was just a swoon worthy kind a guy. You do want to smack up side his head a few times but what you gotta do.
There was a lot of twists and turns I wasn't expected. I loved her sisters punk lol or right hook ahaha.
I really liked watching Bev come into her own in this book, and Liam taking a step back and seeing Bev for who she really is.
Over all a fun light heart'ed read one I look forward to re-listening to.

- Pam Audio-Listener "Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!"

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.
