Take a case of mistaken identity. Mix in shaky views of human nature. Set them into the public eye and watch the misinterpretations of two individuals' behavioral motives. Finally, add painstaking efforts to suppress mutual sexual tension and you have the ingredients of a charming, contemporary romantic novel.
Glenys O'Connell's The No Sex Clause elaborates on sexual mores writer, Anna Findlay's, and television station owner, Jed Walker's, meeting under less than positive circumstances. Within a few hours the couple find themselves forced to confront a strong, physical attraction. It's a light, entertaining novel portraying two people's struggle to escape the pressure of their predicament that heats up as the pair get to know each other and cools down as they strive to dislike each other.
Set in New York City with side trips to Anna's small, suburban hometown, the reader becomes acquainted with a lively list of characters who have impacted Anna's and Jed's lives--a jealous ex-girlfriend, outspoken co-workers, old high school acquaintances, and Anna's foster parents--causing them to confront outdated issues and move on with the business of living. The major question is, can they find a way to let go of past life perceptions and learn to trust each other long enough to be able to turn their emotional turbulence into steadfast love? The fun is walking with them as they try.
The book is short. The story flows and absorbs the reader. The characters are affable, substantive, and worthy of the reader's attention and caring. One caveat for American readers: The No Sex Clause portrays American characters. There are times when the American ear is jolted by the British expressions that dominate the book's dialogue. Although this does not detract from the story's plot, the disparity between characters' vernacular and nationality can disorient the reader. Still, The No Sex Clause is a worthwhile read.
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.
Overall it was intereting and kept me interested in the story
