The characters are likeable, the premise of the committment-phobic bloke (who hasn't met one of them, often at the age of 50, wearing a toupee, sucking in his tummy, scanning the horizon with desperate eyes)is well handled, if a little overdone toward the end.
The one aspect of this story which is a freshing change, is that the main character, Zack, is not a millionaire, billionaire or wealthy executive/heart surgeon/lawyer, but a young man struggling to get his one-person ad agency off the ground. Of course, he is gorgeous - has there ever been a romance novel where the hero is not? - but I forgave him for that and accepted the plot for what it is meant to be - a fun and non-demanding read.
Jenna Barrett is a single twenty-seven year old woman who knows her biological clock is ticking. Now that her lingerie story, Love 'N Lace, is doing well. Jenna decides to focus on her love life, especially since her friends all seem to be matched up and having babies. Jenna even signed up for a class to learn how to improve her chances in husband hunting. However there's a glitch in all her forward plans to find a husband and his name is Zachary West. Zach is attracted to Jenna and she to him, but he plans to never marry. In fact, he literally gets sick to the point of fainting when he even tries saying the 'C' word of commitment. Jenna would love to let go of Zach since he is obviously not in the running for husband material, but Zach won't let her forget him, especially since he's designing new advertising for her store. With them working so closely things heat up and their personal fears are revealed, but in the end will Zack's fear of commitment kill any chances of him being the man for Jenna?
Overall, loved this book. It's a great balance of romance and story development with some funny moments. Zach's afraid of taking the marriage plunge and reading about his struggles through it are frustrating at first, but you grow to hope he gets over his marriage fears especially for Jenna's sake. Jenna is a strong female character who knows what she wants and isn't going to compromise to get to her goal, which is a family. She knows her worth and believes she deserves her happy ending. All woman should keep that mindset and not settle for a toad when a prince is out there for them. So if you're looking for a story with a couple who has hot chemistry, but two different ideas of a happy ending and have to figure out what kind of relationship that leaves them with, then this book is a good book to read.

Zack, who owns his own ad agency that he's trying to build up. He is very handsome, ambitious, personable and sweet but he is determined that he will absolutely never marry.
Jenna meets Zack at his brother's wedding and his brother, Mark, suggests to Jenna that Zack design her new ads. When they get together, they are irresistibly drawn to each other and Zack's crises with his terror of commitments begins.
Jenna takes classes in husband hunting 101 hoping to find the perfect husband, only to be surrounded by some real loser's. She's so drawn to Zack, but does everything in her power to fight that attraction knowing that he has stated more then once, that he never intends to marry.
Zack keeps putting off drawing up plans for her add, but he does draw a few steamy scenes that he's conjured up in his own head concerning Jenna. But...the steamy scenes he's drawn up isn't anything he can use in her add campaign. A few of those pictures get into the wrong hands purely by accident, witch in up causing Zack some really big problems. The man who wants to use them for his add has some major bucks and Zack doesn't want to loose the account. But...at the same time, he knows if he does use them, he'll end up loosing Jenna and she means more to him then any add campaign.
This was a fantastic book. Zack was hilarious, with his physical symptoms and nervousness. I loved him. The engagement scene is something you could never imagine happening.
