Struggling screenwriter, Simi Mitchell is desperate for a sale. She needs the money to support herself and her baby, Kristin. Simi attends a conference, hoping to get someone to notice her work. Sheís excited when acclaimed film director, Jackson Larimore takes an interest in her work. Simiís prepared to go to any length to get him to buy her screenplay.

Jackson is overcome with lust for the young mother and the fact that her work isnít bad is a definite plus. He talks to his friend and producer, Brett Walker about it and is excited when he expresses interest in it. He tells Simi that selling her play might happen.

When his former girlfriend appears on the scene and her ex-husband, Rod, is the victim of a vicious attack, things start getting exciting. Simi is the prime suspect in the attack. Who is really behind it? Is there any hope for Simi and Jackson to work out their difficulties and find love?

If Loving You Is Wrong, is the first book Iíve read by Loure Bussey. I wasnít impressed. The conversation is stilted, the point of view is in everyoneís head and I found much of the activity unbelievable. The book is filled with lust, even the very first chapter has them going at it right after they meet. I thought it was disgusting and wanted them to knock it off already.

The general plot of If Loving You Is Wrong, is good and would have been enjoyable if it werenít for all the problems with the book. Fans of Loure Bussey will probably enjoy the book, but if you havenít read her books before, Iíd advise you not to start with this one.
