Summary:Tess Newhart knows her ex-boyfriend Nick Jamieson isn't the right guy for her. He's caviar and champagne; she's take-out Chinese pot stickers. He's an uptight Republican lawyer; she was raised in a commune. He wants to get ahead in business; she just wants…him. But there's no way Tess will play second fiddle to his job.Yet somehow she finds herself agreeing to play his fiancĂ©e on a weekend business trip that could make or break Nick's career. And while he's trying to convince Tess that he needs her in his respectable world, Tess is doing her best to keep her opinions to herself and her hands off Nick.

My Review: The only reason I got this was because of the cover. Well that and I adore Jennifer! This book was a typical funny, get-back together story, with some twists. I love all the characters because they are all different and fun, and strong in their own unique way. Also I really liked the dialogue of all things! I loved some of the comebacks and fights in this book. Oh, and no doubt you will respect pianos after this

Exert: "You wouldn't believe how they met." She sat up in her chair as she warmed to her story. "Nick told me he was tutoring in college as part of a work-study program, and Park showed up, on the verge of getting kicked our of school because of this really important English paper he'd flunked. On Moby Dick."
"That's the whale, right? I saw the movie."
"Right," Tess said. " Only when Park showed Nick the paper, the prof had written across the top of it, 'Unfortunately, Mr.Patterson, the whale dies in the end.'"
"Park didn't know the whale died?" Gina sounded confused. "He died in the movie."
"Yeah, he dies in Cliff Notes, too," Tess said, laughing. "So Nick said he asked Park how he could possibly have missed that part, and Park said that when he was a kid, his parents only bought him educational toys, and one of the games they bought him was the Moby Dick game-"
"The Moby Dick game?"
"- but the game was meant for kids, so in the game-"
"The whale makes it," Gina finished.
"Exactly," Tess said.
