STRANGE BEDPERSONS, by Jennifer Crusie

Another entertaining romantic romp with the mistress of witty dialogue and sly social commentary. Handsome Nick Jamieson is forced to pretend his ex-girlfriend Tess is his fiancee in order to wangle a lucrative client for his law firm. Ever intent on his career, Republican Nick has always failed to realize it's the one thing that bleeding-heart liberal Tess detests about him. Their host for the big weekend is an author who's about to change careers. His plans will trample Tess's dearest-held convictions and memories. And that's all you'll get from me, the rest would spoil it. If you haven't read Crusie, you are in for a treat. In addition to entertaining, the writing is text-book fabulous, and the plot has got enough twists to keep Sherlock Holmes busy. A 4. The sex is vanilla, forthright, entertaining and 3 on the 1 - 5 scale.
