Loretta D'Angelo has a challenging, often frustrating job working on the Becky Baker show. The world of talk shows is fast changing and constantly demanding that new ideas be found to keep up with what the viewers want. Seeing a sexy man get the better of an obnoxious cell phone user gives her inspiration for a show, but Josh is not at all receptive to being on her show. She does manage to eventually talk him into coming on the show, portraying an arranged blind date for her, but though Josh and Loretta might have progressed to friendship, that is all it will ever be. Josh has a girlfriend, even though she lives across the country, and he has bigger social concerns to take care of as a lawyer for the downtrodden of society. Loretta is not interested in dating at all, especially after her unfortunate history with people her parents fix her up with.
Nonetheless, the two find themselves growing more and more attracted to each other. The girlfriend hundreds of miles away is becoming harder to stay faithful to, as are all Loretta's determinations to maintain her independence.
***** This book is a rollicking good time, perfect for the blahs of summer. You can picture Meg Ryan or Reese Witherspoon as Loretta with no problem, and all I can say is Matt is a dream, handsome and so caring that he is dedicated to taking care of his mother's lawn personally on a weekly basis. If the book only told us where to find one of him, it would be perfect. *****
