Summary:Dumped by her boyfriend and demoted from WBBB's prime-time spot, radio producer Allie McGuffey has nowhere to go but up. She plans to make her comeback by turning temporary DJ Charlie Tenniel into a household name. And if he's willing to help her cure her breakup blues with a rebound fling, that's an added bonus.Charlie just wants to kick back, play good tunes and eat Chinese food. He's not interested in becoming famous. But he is interested in Allie. And after all, what harm in a little chemistry between friends?But suddenly their one-night stand has become a four-week addiction. Night after night on the airwaves, his voice seduces her. . .and all the other women in town. He's a hit. It looks as if Charlie's solved all Allie's problems. . .except one. What is she going to do when he leaves?

My Review: I knew this was going to be a dummy-romantic comedy. And that about sums it up. Don't get me wrong, it was cute and I liked the chem. between Charlie and Allie, but it was like, "well duh they are going to fall in love" from the beginning. But I gotta say, the 'mystery' part threw me for a loop. I think it was one of the most funniest crimes ever! Oh, and how can ya resist Sam or/and Joe? Joe so fit the description of George Downes doncha thank? :)

Excerpt: "Don't chug the cream like that." He took the empty glass from her. "This isn't skim milk, you know. This is the real thing, the hard stuff. Max, another amaretto and cream for the lady. In fact, just bring over a bottle and drive in the cow." " A comedian." Allie nodded her head. "Five guys sitting at the bar, and I pick up the comedian." ~ pg. 20

Cover/Title: I love it because it has the Chinese food container, right next to the bed...
