QUICK TAKES (Oakland Hills Stories)


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.

Sasha Selkirk has been in love with her best friend's brother, Jake Lapinksi, since she was thirteen.

Or make any of her other dreams come true...

PRAISE FOR BARBARA FREETHY BOOKS

"This installment of the Bachelors & Bridesmaids Series appealed to me even more than the previous ones because of the way Isabella brought Nick out of his shell. They truly bettered each other's lives and brought the term, "opposites attract" to life. Good work, Barbara! It was another book of yours that I couldn't put down." Ashley — Goodreads on BEFORE I DO


"This book is funny and sweet. I fell in love with Isabelle. She is free and extremely strong. I loved her outlook on life and I loved the way Hunter and her came together with such passion. I could feel the love and the emotion these two shared. The family drama was also fantastically written. Another wonderful novel from a great author." Mommysmoose — Goodreads on BEFORE I DO


"In the tradition of LaVyrle Spencer, gifted author Barbara Freethy creates an irresistible tale of family secrets, riveting adventure and heart- touching romance." — NYT Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs on Summer Secrets
"This book has it all: heart, community, and characters who will remain with you long after the book has ended. A wonderful story." — NYT Bestselling Author Debbie Macomber on Suddenly One Summer

“A superlative novel that proves everyone can indeed go home again.” — Debbie Macomber on Ryan's Return

“A warm and wonderful book about love, family and everything that’s important in life. Irresistible! I loved it!” — Susan Elizabeth Phillips on Ask Mariah


 

Opening Hearts combines compelling characters, strong family relationships, and realistic conflicts to create a beautiful balance of heat, heartache, and happiness.

Pregnant and alone at 35! 

Jessalyn O'Donnell returns from her best friend's wedding with a surprise of her own.   She knows how it happened – three sex-filled nights with a smokin' hot guy, known only as Sam -- but she has no way to get in touch with him.

When smokejumper Sam Ricci returns to his hometown after the annual firefighting season ends, he has no plans for fatherhood.  His lifestyle is too risky, and he loves his job – almost as much as he loves women. Everything changes when he runs into Jessalyn again and discovers her plans for single parenthood.

Sam doesn’t want to be tied down.  Jessalyn would rather go it alone than deal with an absent husband.  So why, when a twist of fate brings them together again, does it feel so right?

No Cliffhanger.  OPENING HEARTS can be enjoyed as a part of the series, or as a stand alone romance.
