But, mistaken identity be dammed, it did not stop Jeff and Mel from hiring Sam to headline a nationl advertising campaign they were launching.
But Mel found Sam irristible, just like the thousands of women, who were their target market. Describing Sam in her own words, Mel said, "He is ... gift to American women. But, if he is, then why does Mel feel jealous when Sam was doing his job of flirting with the women he was supposed to in the first place.
Laugh out loud funny, "Faking Mr. Right" is a true contemporary romance touching on the effect of Madison Avenue on pop culture, the paparazzi's place in the news media and how personalities can use the same media to right a wrong.
Kerry Connor has her finger on the pulse on the current zeitgeist as she created these funny and remarkable characters. You will love Mel and Sam, plus the plethora of supporting characters that were all fleshed out nicely to be three-dimensional.
Oh, there were a few typographical errors but they were not enough for me to take out one star, hence I'm giving this book a 5-star rating. Also, this is PG 15 (not 13) because of some sexual content.
The banter and chemistry between Sam and Mel is well written, as is the sarcasm. The love that Sam has for his uncle Tommy and vise versa is also well done-the two tough guys trying not to get too mushy. I absolutely loved Sam the ladies man's horror at being groped on the street by strange women in response to his "Mr Right" ads, and also Mel's barely concealed jealousy at the women who were doing the groping. I also loved the descriptions of Mel's dog and his pouting at being insulted. The best thing was the HEA, for more than one romance.
There are sexual scenes but they're not overly drawn out or graphic, there isn't any violence and I don't recall any profanity.
Heat factor moderate.
There were a number of laugh out loud lines in this book and I thought the storyline was very clever. The writing is excellent with great pacing and the HEA is totally satisfying. There are a couple explicit scenes, but they're pretty self-contained so could be skipped if that's an issue. The language is pretty clean - I think the s-word is used once towards the end. I enjoyed this book and might read it again.
Sam is one hot hero, but I wish he had a bit more chance to really ramp up the heat. In some ways, I felt like the author held back on his potential. Having said that, the book does have its steamy moments, but it's not erotica by any stretch of the imagination.
Mel, the heroine, is an interesting character, though I probably liked Sam that little bit more. There is a lot of depth to him that is revealed as the story unfolds.
There are some interesting developments for a number of the secondary characters, which helps to make the book a well-rounded read.
In all, it was a fun, entertaining read with a hot, smart-mouthed hero and a clever, strong-willed heroine. An enjoyable, light read for those days you don't want anything too challenging.
