Jasmine Burns is a wreck when it comes to men, especially handsome, sexy men. Her debilitating shyness becomes a real hazard in her everyday life. When the job opportunity of a lifetime comes up, Jasmine bombs big time. Or so she thinks. When she gets the call that lets her know she did in fact get the job as assistant costume designer, Jasmine is elated. Then she finds out who she will be working with.
Josh Toby, hunky movie start and Jasmine's One True Love, is determined to be taken seriously as an actor. That's why he is hiding out in New York preparing to tackle the acting challenge of a lifetime...the lovelorn Romeo. Josh needs Jasmine's help to stay hidden in New York while he studies and rehearses for the role. Jasmine just wants to run away. Josh Toby is her One True Love; the man her psychic sister Amy believes is destined to love Jasmine forever. Problem is, he has a girlfriend and is heavily involved in the acting world. Jasmine is a stay at home with a DVD and popcorn girl.
These two are about as different as night and day, but the powerful attraction between them cannot be denied, even by anxiety-ridden Jasmine. But is it possible for Jasmine and Josh to find their happily-ever-after?
Diana Holquist has another hit on her hands! I have been eagerly anticipating the follow up to Make Me A Match and I wasn't disappointed in the least! Contemporary romance readers take heart; there are still interesting and exciting titles out there that do not involve vampires, werewolves, or other paranormal creatures. With its focus on developing Josh and Jasmine's relationship, Diana Holquist does not falter in creating memorable scenes, believable emotions, and delectable love scenes!
What I liked most was that while Jasmine had her problems, Josh had plenty of his own. His perfect image is illusionary and he suffers from doubts and phobias the same as Jasmine. However, together they manage to conquer many of their fears in realistic ways. Support and love go a long way towards making even the biggest problem seem surmountable.
Sexiest Man Alive is tender, amusing, and purely fantastic! I don't know how Ms. Holquist is going to tackle scheming sister Amy but I look forward to reading it.
