I found this book clearly listed in "Christian Fiction", but it was obvious within the first page or two that it was not, since the Lord's name was immediately taken in vain and the language was bad in other areas as well. Not being terribly prudish, I decided to continue on for two reasons: the premise sounded interesting and I figured there was an off-chance that it was actually Christian fiction and the characters would develop some redeeming qualities by the end. First, let me say that that did NOT happen, so - if you are offended by bad language and casual (and graphic) sex, this ain't the book for you. There was some brief mention of a Divine being toward the end, but it was in no way a Christian novel (or even religious for that matter).

I realize that mistakes can happen and am not rating the book based on the fact that it is labeled as Christian when it's clearly not (many readers, however, will not be so understanding, and I highly recommend to the author/publisher that they get this little matter fixed ASAP. Of course, there's no such thing as bad publicity, so, whatever . . .)

Anyway, I gave the book three stars for a couple of reasons. The main character was extremely unlikable throughout the entire book. SPOILER AHEAD: I could never understand why in the world the lead man was attracted to her at the level he was. To be treated so poorly and see her treat others so poorly and still be so attracted? Sorry, I don't see it.

The other problem with it was all the "coincidences" and misunderstandings that led to the two characters coming in contact with one another and interacting more than once. Seemed way to far-fetched. Much of the dialogue seemed unnatural as well.

It was a very quick read and I'm glad it was free.

I don't know why there are so many negative ratings. This book was well written and easy to read. The story line was so believable, and the main characters touched my heart and soul. Yes, there were a few minor errors, so what? It didn't take away from the story, at least for me and I'm really picky about that kind of thing. All you have to do is go back and read my other reviews, to see how many times I deducted for those kind of errors. But not this time, because they were minor errors and they were so few.

This story starts off with a big misunderstanding, and grows from then on. First it her fault. Anna Findlay hired a man from an agency to escort to take her to a high school reunion. One that she had been dreading since the day she left home to attend college. Her high school years were a complete nightmare, but now that she's made a success out of her life as a very popular book author, she wants to go back and rub it into their faces. The only thing is...she doesn't have a date to go with her. Hence her need for an escort.

She had been watching the clock and waiting in the hotel lobby for her escort to arrive, when she spots a long, tall, hunk of a man crawling out of a shiny new black SUV in a black tailored tux. She automatically assumes that he's her hired escort, and then gets really irritated when the escort proceeds to keep talking to the doorman about sports. At this point they are already late, so she goes outside and practically drags him along.

Jed Walker ( who's not only a self made billionaire, but also the sole owner of a major t.v. network)finds himself in shock at the woman's behavior, but at the same time... he's also very intrigued by the beautiful woman so he decides to play along. On the drive there Anna continues to berate him and keeps referring to him as someone named "BOB". Jed keeps snickering under his breath, which only pisses Anna off even more. She also keeps saying something about a 'no sex clause', which has him even more confused.

From then on it's one long string of misunderstanding and assumptions between the two, which sometimes becomes so hilarious. Other times it causes some really emotional damage. When a woman named Trinity pulls a prank on Anna and Jed out her own pure jealous rage, Anna is devastated and runs back home to her foster parents house.

It's there that Anna finds herself revisiting her past, and finds herself learning that she has never been comfortable in any of the personnas she has invented for herself.

She can run all she wants, but Jed will not stop until he finds her and tells her the whole truth and wins her back. He has too....because there is no life worth living without her in it.

It takes falling in love - and Christmas with her foster parents - to show Anna that all she needs do is be herself.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, in fact; I highly recommend it!

You can get bored reading lots of romance. Not so with this book. Intelligent people. Not the same old plot. It was fun, entertaining with endearing characters that the author really gets you to know and care about. Brava!

I'm so confused. This book had a high customer rating and the plot sounded like it would be a fun read but it was horrible. I feel awful about giving this a negative review but it was just SO HORRIBLE. Jed was sexy, considerate, rich and manners that any woman would die for. Anna on the other hand was rude, insensitive, selfish... How did Jed fall for her? There was nothing there to love. It made no sense and there was no chemistry for the reader to get wrapped up in. Absolutely horrible. Also, I have a pet peeve about poor editing. There were so many misspelled words and sentences that were incomplete or worded incomprehensibly as though they were edited and not double checked for accuracy. I'm glad it was free.

The story had a great plot. Mistaken identity. Attraction at the first site. Seeing a person for what they really are beneath their outside exterior. However, it seemed as if the author rushed to the end of the story to get it all buttoned up and over. Too much "he took me in his arms to shut me up" type situations instead of real words. I won't spoil the story but it seemed as if the author suddenly became prudish at the end (really, Jed cared that his family was down the hall... he is a grown man!). I gave the story 4 stars because there were many parts that were right. About Anna facing several of her demons by going home again. About mistaken identity in both how people portrayed her by her clothes and life as well as how she was portrayed through the book she wrote.

I really enjoyed this book but not the ending. I wish it could have been extended in a sequel so that we could see more of their life together.

The No Sex Clause is a cute book that starts out with a mistaken identity.

Anna mistook media mogul Jed to be the date she had arranged through an escort agency. Her date was to accompany her to a high school reunion she had been dreading attending. Anna's publisher's publicity agent, Alex, had persuaded Anna to attend the reunion and she had agreed reluctantly and at Alex's insistence she had hired a date for the occasion.

A quick read. Great for the beach. The author has a way of making you feel like your there. Who hasn't dreaded a high school reunion? Wish I thought of this!!

I didn't like the heroine at all. I felt sorry for her but didn't understand how he could possibly be attracted to her.
