So far, Raphael Augustine’s ten year career as a comedian consists of a lot of ones: one night gigs, one night stands, and one night in jail. But he’s committed to inking a successful TV deal, nonetheless. He’s not looking for a relationship and certainly doesn’t expect to have his briefs tied in a knot by a prim and proper woman from Connecticut.
There’s not much to laugh about in Daisy Fletcher’s life. She never thought an Ivy League degree would land her work as an adult webmaster. Years later, fake chat room dates are her only companions, and a failing business her reward. Her father always told her men only want one thing. By selling that one thing to virtual customers, she’s lost faith in the opposite sex.
After Daisy catches Raphael’s shirt during a striptease at a gay bar, she’s tempted. Can a rakish comic change Daisy’s ideas about love and fortune?

I'm too judgey for this book. I didn't think either Raphael or Daisy were appealing characters. They both made stupid choices. Honestly, I found myself not caring whether they got together or not. It was rather funny in places, which was what kept me reading. They met at a gay bar and she thought he was gay for a while. It just wasn't enough. I kept hoping things would get better, but the ending just didn't save it for me. I'm sure other, less judgemental people will enjoy this book, it was just okay for me.
My Rating: ***
