Theresa was smart. She got a PhD in sociology at age 22. Always with kids older than she meant she never had youthful flirting and first loves. Jeffrey, a professor, wooed her and married her in order to steal her research grant. Since then she has never trusted men and is happy to live alone. She considers herself plain-looking. Her younger sister is getting married. Due to a recent illness the bride asked her sisters to plan the wedding for her. Theresa is flying from Sydney to Vancouver B.C. to do that. In the seat next to her is Damien, an Australian author of a mystery suspense series. He is also considered one of Australia's sexiest bachelors. When Damien first boarded the plane he flirted with the stewardess. But as he gets to know Theresa, he wants her. The stewardess wants him, so he asks Theresa to pretend to be his fiancé so he can get out of the flirting. She says ok. He kisses her, and soon they find themselves hot and heavy with desire. They do things under the blanket and more in the lavatory.
Theresa has never felt desirable or sexy. But Damien truly sees her that way, and she loves this new feeling. She desires and lusts after Damien as well. The book is written for women in a wishful thinking way, not expecting it, and being wooed by a sexy stranger. They spend time together. They do a variety of things together. The more he sees the more he likes. It's almost too pleasant. It was missing the excitement that keeps one drawn in. There is a lot of conversation. It's good conversation. I liked one of their arguments. She said he should take up the cause of discrimination against aborigines in his fiction books. He was one-quarter aborigine. He countered with she should take up the cause of discrimination against women in her work. She conceded, point made.
One scene bothered me. Toward the end, she heard him say something (out of context) and assumed the wrong thing. She immediately became cold and treated him bad. This was the formulaic fight/separation that most romance novels have. Why? It wasn't necessary. It felt like someone forced the author to put a separation in the book. All Theresa had to do was ask a question to clarify what she heard. But no she was cold for a period of time until she accidentally learned the truth. Not fun. I would much rather have seen a little excitement or danger by having a third person cause conflict, like a pick pocket, a rude person, the paparazzi, etc.
On balance it was a pleasant reading experience. It wasn't the kind of thing that had me eager to get back to it each time, but it was good. There were many sex scenes. They were explicit and somewhat sensual, but not as hot as others.
Minor problem: Damien has black hair to his shoulders. Cover guy has a short haircut.
