|Andrea is having one of those days as she rushes to meet her mother for lunch. As luck would have it, she slips and tumbles into Mr. Fabulous. The problem is that Andrea is late and heads off for her lunch date with only a minor second thought. Things start looking up for her as she starts a new job and gets a boss she can haggle with. Andrea is then given the assignment to watch a client's precocious child. What does she know about kids? She is an assistant manager for pete's sake. After the first hour, she is ready to strangle her boss, her charge and the child's guardian. Max is Piper's guardian and he is bumbling through taking care of her and letting go of past memories of 9/11. Can they work together as a team? Or will circumstances keep them at odds?
Sookoo's writing makes you feel like you are listening to a friend tell a great story. The writing is funny, witty and all together a joy to read. Andrea is a character who seems to have more of "those days" than any person should. You can't help but cheer her on and laugh at her acerbic humor. Max represents a man that could use a swift kick in the backside to help him open his eyes. You really want him to see what is in front of him and let go of his past. Once you pick this up you will laugh, scream in frustration, and smile as you turn the pages of this feel good read.
