Risky Business is a great romantic comedy in the style of a 1930's movie which means you can't take it seriously and you are just supposed to have fun with it. Tom, a hunk hidden behind a horrible haircut and awful Goodwill clothes, is stuck in a boring, dead-end job selling insurance. Marla, a gorgeous fashion model, has been told by her agency that, because of her clumsiness, she can't work unless she insures her face for three million dollars. Tom agrees to write the policy for Marla but his boss insists that Tom personally makes sure that nothing happens to her face for the next 30 days or he will be out of a job. Marla and Tom have a great deal of difficulty developing a working relationship and many of their adjustments are very funny, especially after Tom becomes convinced that someone is trying to ruin Marla's face for the insurance. There is one incident after another and no one knows if Tom's theories are right or they are all coincidences. I really loved the ending but I did not like the epilogue as it didn't add anything to the story.
This book is very well written with a smooth style that flows easily from beginning to end. The editing, however, could use some work. (Probably the worst mistake was using the word "retched" instead of "wretched" when referring to scratchy sheets!) it was not bad enough to interrupt the story but it did get annoying sometimes. The dialogue was wonderful and the personalities of all the characters, both major and minor, were well-developed and three-dimensional. The imagery was very vivid and realistic. Altogether, I think this is a terrific book and I enjoyed reading it very much. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes humorous twists along with their love stories.
