No Interest in Love

Cassie Mae. Loveswept, $2.99 e-book (223p) ISBN 978-1-101-88579-6

Mae (Friday Night Alibi) takes the unusual step of presenting an entire contemporary romance from the hero’s point of view, showing both the shallowness of a man out for sex without emotion, and the self-awareness of a man who won’t offer more than he can give. Jace Carver is determined to nail his next movie audition: the leading lady has a habit of sleeping with her costars, and he wants the sex without the strings. His agent, Shay Kwak, is just as determined to get him to the audition, and to prove to herself and the world that she’s more than the viral video that has ruled her life since college. What starts as a simple change of airport to avoid a desert rainstorm soon devolves into a cross-country race against time—and against the growing sexual tension and feelings between the actor and the agent. The expansive relationship between Jace and Shay draws on the best elements of screwball and romantic comedies, though the satisfying ending is marred slightly by an unnecessary epilogue. Agent: Brittany Booker, Booker Albert Literary Agency. (Dec.)
