The author is new to me, so this book was read as a standalone. I didn't feel any loss by not having read the previous three books in the Not Quite series. If anything, I'm wanting to know more about the supporting characters and their stories because Catherine Bybee certainly knows how to write refreshingly interesting and believable protagonists.

Dakota Laurens is a sassy-mouthed romance writer who's attending a romance writers convention in Miami. A Lakers cap catches the attention for Dr Walt Eddy and he can't take his eyes off the beautiful woman sitting at the bar, who was wearing it. Their eyes meet momentarily but all to soon the owner of the gold-sparkling brown eyes is gone.

Walt doesn't have to wait too long before he sees those sexy eyes again, as a hotel computer glitch has his “Art of Improvising Medical Tools and Equipment” scheduled in the same room as Dakota's “The Art of Crafting a Gratifying Sexual Scene”! Needless to say, Walt wins no favours for ridiculing the fact that there are conventions for bodice-rippers, but is observant enough to know that his comments had ticked Dakota off. For her part, Dakota flips the coin and her response renders him speechless.

Both at stalemate but equally wanting to know more about one another, the story continues for Walt and Dakota. Sizzling chemistry or not, the future doesn't look promising for the protagonists, but fate steps in to shake things up a bit!

This is a perfect book whether lying on the beach or huddled up to keep warm on a cold Winters night. It's fun, light-hearted and laugh-out loud funny which leaves you, the reader with a contented feeling after you've turned the final page.
