The Gotham Roses may raise millions for charity, but it is the work they do for the government that has the most value. Investigating crimes among society’s movers and shakers requires agents with a certain entree into all the “right” events.

When actor Jeremy Reins suddenly acquires a stalker, psych-student/party-girl Porsche Rothschild is the perfect person to assess the true nature of the threat. Manufacturing a romantic angle between them is child’s play, especially since Jeremy would love to squash the rumor about his affinity for young men. Porsche is not sure she is the best person for the job, but she is intrigued enough, and really wants to show everyone that she is not all fluff.

From crazed fans to an entourage that belongs in rehab, Jeremy’s life is anything but dull. Of course, he stokes the fire with his own outrageous behavior, exasperating everyone around him. Even Sam, his mentor from Montana, can’t always control the unruly actor.

When the threats turn deadly, Porsche and the others must discover who is behind the harassment. Is it just a publicity stunt or is someone interested in harming Jeremy? Porsche also must face her growing attraction to Sam, and decide whether to act on her desire. Is Sam as forthright as he appears or does he have something to hide?

Lethally Blonde’s heroine reminded me a bit of Paris Hilton, which was a minus in my book. She was a bit too pampered, more than a bit too ditzy, and I wanted to send her ferret to the animal shelter. This has been the first book in the IT Girl series that did not keep me riveted to my seat. Hopefully, it will not be an omen of things to come. I really have enjoyed the overall premise of the series, and will continue to look forward to the next book.
