Ann and Ian are a funny couple. It was a fast paced novel, but completely focused on each character and you love them. It was funny and I enjoyed reading it, finished it in a day but this is must read by Shannon Drake.

Not one of her best, but very typical. Still enjoyable. Would recommend it to anyone who likes Heather Graham novels, but not someone who has never read her before.
