If you’ve just read Mark and Rose’s story in This Time Next Door, you’ve got to read the book that started it all: Love Handles. I had subtitled it When Spanx Aren’t Enough but, fearing lawsuits and disappointing BDSM fans (since there is no actual spanking in the book, not even a pat), I shortened it to Love Handles.
Bev is a preschool teacher with a couch potato sensibility who inherits a fitnesswear company. Her arrogant VP is a former Olympic swimmer (Mark’s big brother, Liam.). Sparks fly, clothes come off, love blossoms. Now it has the same look as This Time Next Door, so you know you’re getting the same world, family, and humor. (And buildings!)
The next book in the series will be April’s story. That will be out in 2014, after the sequel to The Supermodel’s Best Friend, which comes out later this year. I post more frequent updates on Facebook, so find me over there if you want to live the painful process right along with me. 😛
