The meeting with the publisher did not go quite the way Tory had expected. Not only were they not interested in publishing her manuscript; they wanted her to sign on as co-writer for the current "psychobabble" craze namely Keenan James. They wanted her "Doctor" title to lend credence to James' theories.
She didn't like him, didn't think what he was doing was quite ethical but she didn't have a lot of choices left at this point. So she agrees to think about it and joins one of his discussion groups to see what's really going on.
In a classic case of opposites attract, Tory and Keenan do meet and get to know each other better. But she meets him as Vicky, a member of one of his discussion groups, not as Tory his co-writer. So how does she reintroduce herself now?
And things go downhill, or uphill as the case may be, from there. In a book filled with characters, real characters, the reader is drawn in and thoroughly enmeshed in a series of events that leave a reader either gasping for breath or laughing right out loud.
Keenan James has made a career out of teaching women what men really want. He hosts a weekly roundtable, where he offers advice to the love-lorn, and now he's even been tapped to write a book—though he's never been able to commit to just one girl. Unfortunately, he's recently been saddled with his mom's irrepressible pooch, a golden doodle named Barbra Streisand, and his publisher has saddled him with a co-writer—a shy psychologist named Tory Hoffstra, who's determined to keep him on a short leash. Suspecting that Keenan's nothing but a hound, Tory joins the round-table under an alias. She's shocked that he's more than just a smooth-talking seducer . . . and that he's even more gorgeous than she had heard. As for Keenan, before long he finds himself warming up to Barbra the dog and feeling the heat with Tory . . . and learning that not even his own advice could have prepared him for finally falling in love.
