At H & H's first date - lunch at a fancy Atlanta restaurant - he's got a hard on the whole time because he can't stop staring at her chest with its nipples like "pearled beads." Ooh how romantic! She tells him an erotic dream she had of him and an image of her "slender long red toenails" pops into his head. Now that's hot! She storms out on him but forgets her car keys, so what does she do? Shimmies under the car in the restaurant parking lot in her new black silk dress to get the spare key, of course, just in time for him to come out and look up her dress. She won't come out, so he crawls under there with her, where she's got grease on her face and she's crying, which makes his "gut clench." Aw, couldn't be sweeter, could it? Somehow, under the car, she manages to elbow him in the groin. What a laugh riot (though you gotta wonder where that darn spare key is)! He dangles the keys she'd forgotten in front of her and she snatches them from him (exactly how much room are they putting under BMW sportscars these days anyway?). They crawl out from under the car - no awkwardness there - he kisses her for about 4 pages (longer than any conversation they've had), and he knows something special is happening, but she's scared and hops in the car. As she drives off "a bolt of lightening struck the sky."
So, if you get this book, don't say you weren't warned.
Gabe Thornton is a reporter who has been chasing this story, The Alphabet Thief, who enters people's homes, steals their electronic wares and leaves behind one of those plastic magnetic alphabet letters that every home with a child has for the fridge, as a calling card, so to speak. As part of his job, he was running through the "Single and Searching" ads for another article, when he comes across the ad using every letter of the alphabet. He wondered if there was a correlation between the alphabet ad and the alphabet thief.
When he gets to her house for the date, he's an hour early due to the time change (he was on a business trip), she thinks by the way he's dressed that he must be the plumber that has come to fix her toilet (Henry S. flushed neon green condoms (balloons) down it), she has orange and purple koolaid in her hair (courtesy of Henry S.), and her house is in disarray with toys and art supplies everywhere. Gabe thinks a bomb must have gone off in her house because there is hardly a place to walk. This is hardly the kind of woman that he would seek out. While she is getting ready, he fixes her toilet, but slips away, standing her up.
The next morning she reads the article that he has written, slandering her good name because of his first impressions of her. She, and her house, were a mess, so therefore, she must be brainless and certainly not good dating material. When she realizes that the plumber had actually been her date that stood her up, she decides to get revenge.Read more ›
Casey is a single woman, a children's book author and adoptive mother. Her lifestyle is delightfully scattered and chaotic.
Gabe is a reporter, cynical by necessity, but good-hearted. At the urging of his editor, he agrees to write an article about on online dating service between his usual investigative articles.
Casey and Gabe get off to a rough start, but it's certainly entertaining! Trust is a big theme in this book as the main characters face some pretty big obstacles to trusting each other.
The criminal is telegraphed pretty well and there's another aspect of the story that wasn't entirely unexpected (no spoilers!). Overall, it was a delightfully fun read. I probably won't read it again simply because my to-read list is so long, but I will remember parts of this story for quite some time (I love it when a good story sticks in my memory for a while). I definitely recommend this book for a fun, light-hearted mystery romance.
If you like Jennifer Crusie, you will probably enjoy this book as well. It's well-written, well-paced and easy to read.
Sensuality: some sex, fairly descriptive
Rating: 5 stars
