Taking Love in Stride

Author: Donna Fasano

Barnes and Noble

Track coach Andrea O'Connor is fuming at the audacity of Ian Powers, the very attractive father of one of her students. He offered to buy school equipment only if Andrea agreed to train him for a half-marathon.

Well, train him, she would. And not just in running. As a widower with a high-powered job, Ian needed some instruction in being a father to an active teenage daughter. Yet as this overbearing man opened up, Andrea found herself learning lessons--in loving.

Ian knew that Andrea, with her assertive attitude and her penchant for stilettos, was some woman! But her vulnerable heart was on the run, so he'd have to prove that his love, unlike his running, had limitless endurance--and once he caught this swift beauty, he'd never let her go.

What people are saying
This book's cover says it all: when two type-A personalities meet, sparks fly! These characters were so real they could have been people I knew. Andrea is feisty and refuses to be bested by Ian, no matter how sexy and good-looking he is! And the story is crazy and cute. Well worth the small price tag. If you like boy-meets-girl comedies, I recommend this book for a few hours of fabulous fun. I'll be looking to see what else Donna Fasano wrote. Enjoy!

Another reader said:
Put on your running shoes for a fun run with Andrea and Ian as they jog down Lover's Lane. Of course, Andrea spurns the word "jog," being a serious runner and high school coach. Her first impression of single-dad Ian isn't very favorable. He reminds her too much of her own work-driven father. But circumstances bring these two together as she coaches him for a marathon. Soon, they're both wondering if it's more than running that makes their hearts race. Donna Fasano proves again that she is a solid romance author, delivering a well-paced story with appealing lead characters and a true-to-life supporting cast. In the end, everybody is better off for the lessons they've learned and the love they've discovered. You'll want to dash for this one!

Another reader said:
This is another fantastic book by Donna Fasano. I loved Andrea and Ian's story. I loved Ian's daughter Denise and Ian's father. They are a big part of this tale. I won't go into the description of the book as that is done already. I just want to say that I highly recommend this book. I don't think you will be disappointed with it.
