OMG this was such a guilty pleasure. It had so many layers and each revealed something steamier than the last. Jack is my hero and I absolutely adored his utter cluelessness. Armed with a flowchart for just about everything, he tackled what he viewed as his problem in a scientific matter that, while not really appropriate, worked nonetheless. Good for him! Although I loved reading about his weight loss and commitment to a new lifestyle, that feminine part of me absolutely hated him for getting that weight off that fast. Again, proof that life is not fair.
Sara I liked a little less, and I don’t know if it’s because she had Jack in her life for years but didn’t “see” him until he was buff or because she knew so little of his life in general. Where Sara did shine was in making her ex grovel and making Jack mind. Her emergence as a Domme was refreshing as well as hot, and I liked when she dropped the ball a few times in her handling of Jack. Of the three stories in the series this is my favorite as it has it all and then some. A book I will read again just for the heck of it.
When über-nerd Jack asks Sara to make him more attractive to women, she can't say no--even though it's an impossible task. He's shaggy and doughy and hopelessly inappropriate. He has no style or emotional intelligence but he's a good person. And a great friend. What Sara never expects? Beneath all that fur and geekiness is a steamy hunk just waiting to emerge.
Jack takes Sara's regimen very seriously, working out and losing weight until he feels like a new man. He even complies with her command to shave his beard--because Jack didn't ask Sara to make him over so he would be attractive to other women. He only wants to be attractive to her. They go on a series of fake dates, each hotter and more sinful than the last. It's not long before Sara discovers Jack's secret desire to be dominated and what began as an arrangement becomes something amazing--something that could be real.
