About the Author

Multi-award winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight. But she didn't think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a teacher instead. Now she writes so she doesn't have to get a real job. She is the author of over sixty books, writes sexy romantic comedies and steamy romantic suspense stories set in the South. For more on her titles and other releases, visit her at www.ritaherron.com.

Do authors have large families who are assigned to put out 5-star reviews the minute a book is published? How are you supposed to find a decent read when you can't trust reviewers? For this review I'll let the author speak for herself; then you can decide if you want to go further.

At H & H's first date - lunch at a fancy Atlanta restaurant - he's got a hard on the whole time because he can't stop staring at her chest with its nipples like "pearled beads." Ooh how romantic! She tells him an erotic dream she had of him and an image of her "slender long red toenails" pops into his head. Now that's hot! She storms out on him but forgets her car keys, so what does she do? Shimmies under the car in the restaurant parking lot in her new black silk dress to get the spare key, of course, just in time for him to come out and look up her dress. She won't come out, so he crawls under there with her, where she's got grease on her face and she's crying, which makes his "gut clench." Aw, couldn't be sweeter, could it? Somehow, under the car, she manages to elbow him in the groin. What a laugh riot (though you gotta wonder where that darn spare key is)! He dangles the keys she'd forgotten in front of her and she snatches them from him (exactly how much room are they putting under BMW sportscars these days anyway?). They crawl out from under the car - no awkwardness there - he kisses her for about 4 pages (longer than any conversation they've had), and he knows something special is happening, but she's scared and hops in the car. As she drives off "a bolt of lightening struck the sky."

So, if you get this book, don't say you weren't warned.

I've read a number of Rita Herron's books and they always catch my up right from the start with the funny and embarrassing situations her characters find themselves in. Gabe is a reporter researching a piece on lonely hearts advertisements. Casey is one of the women whose ad's he has answered for research. But when he arrives to pick her up things don't go as planned--with hilarious consequences. Add a cute little boy, a big soppy dog and a blocked toilet and watch the fun begin. Another laugh out loud funny romantic comedy. Highly recommended.

Casey McIntyre is a young mother of a two year old, Henry S., who is fighting for her right to custody of the child from the kid's father, Travis Satterfield. Casey is also a bestselling author of some children's books.

Gabe Thornton is a reporter who has been chasing this story, The Alphabet Thief, who enters people's homes, steals their electronic wares and leaves behind one of those plastic magnetic alphabet letters that every home with a child has for the fridge, as a calling card, so to speak. As part of his job, he was running through the "Single and Searching" ads for another article, when he comes across the ad using every letter of the alphabet. He wondered if there was a correlation between the alphabet ad and the alphabet thief.

When he gets to her house for the date, he's an hour early due to the time change (he was on a business trip), she thinks by the way he's dressed that he must be the plumber that has come to fix her toilet (Henry S. flushed neon green condoms (balloons) down it), she has orange and purple koolaid in her hair (courtesy of Henry S.), and her house is in disarray with toys and art supplies everywhere. Gabe thinks a bomb must have gone off in her house because there is hardly a place to walk. This is hardly the kind of woman that he would seek out. While she is getting ready, he fixes her toilet, but slips away, standing her up.

The next morning she reads the article that he has written, slandering her good name because of his first impressions of her. She, and her house, were a mess, so therefore, she must be brainless and certainly not good dating material. When she realizes that the plumber had actually been her date that stood her up, she decides to get revenge.

This was a light, fun read. Some of the situations were over-the-top and I found the fact that Casey was supposedly a street kid with a record growing up who is no stranger to fighting kind of contrary to her supposedly "shy," virginal nature. Also, we have a two-year-old in this book that eats jawbreakers, chews gum, is taught to crack open and eat shelled peanuts and rides in a car without a carseat, apparently. I had to wonder if Rita Herron has ever had children, and if so, just how long ago that was. LOL. But whatever. I went with it. Also, Gabe kept getting calls on his cell that required him to "answer" it but yet entailed him calling the caller back. I was wondering if this story was originally written with Gabe carrying a beeper and later rewritten to update the content. I don't know. Weird little details like that kept pulling me out of the story. Small inconsistencies, but jarring for me. Like where limbs were placed and how certain physical actions were carried through in certain situations. Thinking of that scene where Casey and Gabe are under Brick's BMW. What in the world? And in another instance, Gabe is wearing nothing but borrowed sweatpants in one scene but pulls out his ringing phone (which he has to answer, yet call the person back, as above) AND a pad and pen?! If he had to walk over to his discarded, wet pants, please tell me. LOL.

Overall, it may be a typical romance plot, but it was funny, suspenseful, and a cute love story. Good for a free download on my kindle, for sure.
