I enjoyed reading Ms. Simmons book, The Paradise Man, and feel that it was better than average (3 stars) but not quite deserving of a 4 star rating. If you like quick, light reading, you will love this book. The main charaters, though not thoroughly developed, are fun to follow through their adventures. The secondary characters are completely unbelievable and I felt detracted from the story. There are a few surprises, but for the most part I felt that the book was very predictable. If you want to kill a few hours relaxing on the beach then this is your book!
