This book has gotten TWO DIK grades from us. It's got a wild premise. In the A- review--the other one is an A--our reviewer wrote:
I'm leaving out about 90 percent of the details, here, but suffice to say that this book is funny. A lot of books try to be funny, but this is one of the few that really had me giggling. The setup, the dialogue, the details - even the secondary characters are funny. As an added bonus, the book is also unpredictable. I'm a sucker for any book that doesn't follow the beaten path. This one goes completely off-road. The chemistry between Josie and Matt is half sparkling repartee, half sizzling attraction. But the author goes beyond that and actually works in some solid character development as well, something I don't expect from a zany comedy. Josie is brainy but vulnerable, thinks she's fat, and has a deep-seated need for a man to be her friend as well as lover. Matt is a sexy playboy who fell in lust with Josie as soon as he saw her. He's ambitious, driven, hungry for recognition, but the mere sight of Josie makes him forget all that. The development of these characters both lends to the conflict between them, and makes me care about their happiness. By the end of this novel I was not only laughing, I was also solidly rooting for the hero and heroine.
