Rei Davis is a family court judge and keeps her feelings closely guarded.

Chris London is a light-hearted matchmaker who owns a dating service. Can two people so mismatched have a meeting ground?


The title of this book is very apt. It is a delightful way to spend an afternoon reading this book.


When I first started it I thought it would be a light hearted sexy romp of a story, but there is a lot more to this book.


Rei's character is brilliant and the reader will follow her journey through this book with a misting of tears, excitement and smiles. She is half Asian and finds that her white father has difficulty having a father daughter relationship with her and it clouds her relationship with men. Then she meets Chris, when her friend drags her to Diva's nightclub.


Rei also is in remission for breast cancer and the author deals with this issue so well. It is part of Rei and makes the reader understand why she takes a chance on a purely sexual relationship with Chris.


This story is a mixture of hot passion and the complexity of relationships.

It gives the reader an insight into a woman of mixed race and into a woman recovering from breast cancer while holding down a high powered job.


Chris' character has his own issues especially about his own parents and his ever growing business and it's popularity. He comes across as a young man who has depth of character while having an outgoing nature.

Mia Zachary is an excellent author who knows how to entertain her readers.


Well worth buying this delightful book. Go on treat yourself!
