"Strange Bedpersons" by Jennifer Crusie
My Book Summary : Tess and Nick are so different for each other that they are perfect for each other .... now if only they can both figure it out before it's to late.
Tess grew up in a commune during the sixties, while Nick had a pretty normal blue-collar childhood. Nick is now a conservative Republican lawyer who has his eye set out for becoming partner at his law-firm, while Tess sticks up for what she believes in anyway possible (even if it means protesting or something bigger) and just recently lost her teaching position. But those aren't their only differences it's just the tip of the iceberg ... and many of those reasons are why Tess broke up with Nick about a month ago. So, why is Nick standing in front of her door looking like he's needing something??
That's because he is .... he needs her to pretend to be his fiancee for a weekend business trip. But can she do it, after everything they've been through?
Sure, why not? They're friends still, right? And it's not like they have any feelings or sexual attraction for each other still, right?
Well ... they will certainly know the answers to those questions once the weekend is through .... but will that stop them from trying to change each other into their perfect match?
My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, Tess and Nick were quite a pair to read about. Especially with their different points of view and even though they wanted different things (out of each other and in life), they never really gave up on each other and stuck it through. It was a really sweet and funny novel. I'd recommended it to anyone who enjoys reading about romantic comedies. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"What's romantic about going back to your apartment?" Tess asked him, annoyed.For more information on this book and/or any other books by Jenny, then please check out her website.
"What's romantic about doing it in the front seat of a sports car?" Nick retaliated. "Hell, I'm not even sure it's possible. There's not that much room."
"We could have found out," Tess said. "But no, you had to be respectable and responsible---"
"Besides, I have a career on the line here---"
"---and dull and boring---"
"---which I realize means nothing to you---"
"---and completely unexciting---"
"---but it means a lot to me---"
"---not to mention a grave comment on how little you actually wanted me---"
"---or at least enough that I'm not going to risk it for sex in a car---"
"---which is why I see no reason in pursuing this relationship---"
"---and anyway I prefer beds---"
"---so you can just go back to your own bed!" Tess flared.
"---like this one, for example," Nick finished.
