Tess Newhart knows her ex-boyfriend Nick Jamieson isn't the right guy for her. He's caviar and champagne; she's take-out Chinese pot stickers. He's an uptight Republican lawyer; she was raised in a commune. He wants to get ahead in business; she just wants…him. But there's no way Tess will play second fiddle to his job.
Yet somehow she finds herself agreeing to play his fiancée on a weekend business trip that could make or break Nick's career. And while he's trying to convince Tess that he needs her in his respectable world, Tess is doing her best to keep her opinions to herself and her hands off Nick.
I love, love, love Jennifer Crusie’s books. She has a knack for writing flawed, quirky, yet fun characters who find themselves in hilarious situations, but the reader can’t help but love anyway. Tess could easily be one of those characters that is just too flaky to relate to, and Nick could easily be an egotistical jerk that the reader can’t get behind, but Crusie is able to write them in such a way that make them not only likable, but seem compatible.
