Poindextre and Sangazure is your typical, rather staid, law firm polarized by rank where cooperation and enthusiasm depends largely upon who is doing the asking and what their position is in the firm. There are clear lines of division. Alex Poindextre is an idealist who thinks everyone should get along and work together for the good of all and be pleasant to one another regardless of whether they're attorney, paralegal, secretarial, or tech staff. He feels that the firm would be a force to be reckoned with and much more productive if everyone could just get along better. That’s important to him because he wants to be more than just the nephew of one of the senior partners; he wants to be a partner.
No matter what Alex does or says to ‘fix’ the problems he sees, it doesn’t work and no will give credence to his views. Most don’t even see the problem. In frustration, he turns to a firm who has various potions guaranteed to fix life’s problems and meets up with the representative who wants off the sales force and back to the business of being a sorcerer. He assures him that he has just the potion to make the staff friendlier and more open with one another. All they have to do is put it in the coffee…
What he doesn’t tell Alex is the potion, philos (very similar to the eros formula but with a few tweaks), is still in the experimental stage. What follows is a rollicking office party with the staff a whole lot more friendly than Alex ever intended.
Rose Maybud has a great sense of humor and makes you roll your eyes and laugh throughout the well crafted but fun story. She creates realistic characters and she obviously knows her way around the workings of a law firm. There were several characters I really liked but, I have to say, Alex cracked me up especially during his love scenes with his fiancée, Eileen Sangazure.
If you're looking for something light and funny to read, be sure to pick up Something in the Coffee.

Dear Anne: Love Letters from Nam
Ms. Maybud's story is clever, sexy, and fun. Her experience in law (I believe the author was an attorney) is clearly evident in the dialogue and thoughts of the characters. Unlike many erotic romances, the characters in this story had depth and motivations that were easy to identify with and made them feel like real people. The love potion gave just the right touch of magic to the story. Intelligent and witty, this book was hard to put down. It's obvious Ms. Maybud is well versed in the classics and her sophisticated touch to this story made it a delightful read. I will definitely read more from this author.
