"amusing contemporary romance"
Atlanta radio station WTLK operations manager TJ Lawrence
informs his two highest paying talk hosts that the Detroit
based front office wants "one brand of dog food gone". TJ
will make a decision in one week as to which one he fires.
The competitors, Dr. Olivia Moore runs a show aimed at
helping hurting women while Matt Ransom hosts a program
targeting macho males. Adding to the rivalry is that eight
years ago, the duo were lovers in Chicago, but though the
intern Olivia loved the experienced Matt he could not
commit to more than a quick fling.
The twosome gets into an on the air feud that stirs up
listeners and drives up each one's ratings. This leads to
the station deciding to have a contest. Matt and Olivia
will share a house for one week with their respective shows
aired at this abode and they will be on the net 24/7. The
individual who obtains the greater amount of food donations
to a local charity will keep the job. As the two
combatants argue on the air and kick box over the net,
their love resurfaces, but will these opposites overcome
his Peter Pan tendencies to find happiness together?
This amusing contemporary romance stars two delightful lead
characters. The audience will relish the gender war
between Matt and Olivia, but at the same time will want to
spin kick some sense into the brain of the lead male.
Wendy Wax provides readers with an enjoyable look at
relationships at a radio station.
