"A delightful romance"
At Beckworth Public Relations, the women are drooling over
a hunk from Ashton landscaping. They decide to play the
straw game with the babe that draws the biggest having to
find a way to make the dude drool from desire. Kasey
Braddock wins the contest. Although she would prefer to
have not entered, her image means everything in the
upscale youthful modern PR office; thus, she grabs a
bottle of water to introduce herself to the stud as a
happening chick "so ready".
Kasey recognizes Sam Ashton, who she had a crush on years
ago when he was the friend of her older stepbrother, but
he does not recognize the beautiful woman giving him the
water. He had noticed her earlier and sees this
opportunity to ask her out, which she accepts. Not long
afterward, she remains committed to his drooling one time,
but he wants her for all time.
This entertaining contemporary romance starts as a fun
read with the office women salivating over visiting hunks
while the men are stunned with how far the females will go
with the games. When the lead couple begins dating, the
plot deftly switches gear so that the audience can see
what motivates the protagonists. Of major enjoyment is to
watch Sam realize that the woman he is falling in love is
not the image of hip that Kasey portrays, but the
kindhearted caring soul that she really is though the
target of his affection cannot believe he recognized her
inner essence. Fans will appreciate this fine tale.
