Heroine Georgia Malone is a Marketing Consultant and her first solo campaign is an American company that manufactures sports and leisure wear and equipment. The company, VitalSport, is expanding into the Canadian market. The figurehead is Canadian hockey star, Woody Hanrahan.
The book begins with Georgia meeting with four friends who have established a book club together. The majority of the women feel their recent book choices have been too boring. One friend suggests that they expand their book selection for the month into a more racy genre; historical erotica. Georgia immediately comes off as the prude of the club. We quickly learn she was celibate prior to her first marriage. Now a widow, she has returned to celibacy determined to not have sex unless marriage is in the cards. Georgia has never experienced sexual pleasure but is not opposed to reading about it in the latest book club selection.When Georgia enters the conference room for her initial meeting with Woody, she finds him in a thong. Immediately flustered, she does not understand why he is naked and asks him to put on clothes so they can conduct the meeting. He asks if she has a problem with nudity then assumes she is a lesbian and voices his assumption to which she does not deny.
Woody is attracted to Georgia but knows she is not a “puck bunny” and therefore tries to focus on the meeting; still only wearing a thong. (Apparently the thong is part of the “leisure wear” of VitalSport.) After the meeting, Georgia’s boss and the representative from VitalSport leave to sign contracts. Woody begins flirting with Georgia, she accuses him of being a homophobe, they argue, she states she is not a lesbian and he tells her he’s wanted her since he first saw her (all of about 5 minutes ago). He makes the moves on her in the conference room, gives her her first orgasm, and they have sex on the table. This is the same woman who stated, “She was glad she wasn’t a very sexual being. Celibacy was easy.”
All of this bizarre behavior takes place in the first 33 pages to which I decide the storyline is outlandish, the characters are absurd and I have no desire to continue.
