BAIT AND SWITCH, by Larry Brooks

Wolfgang Schmitt: with a name like that, he's not what you might think. This one's a 6'3" hottie, an ad agency accounts manager with cynical, smartass attitude to spare. Tall, dark, handsome, and, post breakup with the woman he was almost ready to commit to, tired of all of it. When he's offered a million bucks for making the estranged wife of a multi-billionaire fall in love with him, his inner good-guy says no. Then his why-not guy says yes. Click below for more no-spoiler review...
At once, he's swept into the anything-goes world of the hyper-rich, his guide being his new boss's icy-hot lawyer, the seductive and take-no-prisoners Lee Van Wyke. Van Wyke introduces him to the world of high-end everything, including the he wine, the women, and the tennis. Wolf plays his part superbly, but thee are a lot of puzzles in the scene. Why are two FBI agents shadowing him? Is the estranged wife really as bad as all that? Who works for whom? It's a 4, chock full of tight, witty repartee, a very complex plot that the author manages to keep totally under control, and a sock ending that'll keep you up way past your bedtime.
