Sexiest Man Alive
ISBN # 978-0446617987
"Jasmine Burns’s One True Love as destined by Fate is named Josh Toby. Of course, he might not be THE Josh Toby, the biggest movie star of the decade. After all, a shy girl like her could never be loved by a movie star like him? Could she?"
You should never judge a book by its cover. If I had to guess what would be found in the pages of Sexiest Man Alive, I would assume shallow characters and lots of sex, and I would have been terribly mistaken. I would have missed out on a great story, as well.
Jasmine and Toby are polar opposites when it comes to personality, but not so much regarding their core values. Add in a quirky, supposedly psychic sister, a patient and kind librarian, and a manipulative wanna-be girlfriend - and an ecclectic romantic comedy is born. This book is a terrific study of people's insecurities and the confusion that ensues when fear gets in the way of honesty.
I'll probably be stuffing someone's stocking with this deliciously funny book!
