Unlike many authors who write the same basic story again and again, McCarthy switches it up so that each book is different while still exhibiting her excellent ability to create characters readers feel connected to. Jamie Peters is the retro-hippy of her group of friends. Her wild, curly hair; rounded body; and long flowing skirts add to her earth-mother appeal. Unfortunately, the men who appeal to her are fixer-uppers who need her help. She is a social worker in New York, and one of her success stories, an ex-con transvestite who tells fortunes, predicts that she'll meet her soul mate. Enter Jonathan "Jack" Davidson, a former day trader who, after making millions, quits his job. They literally run into each other on the subway, and it's kismet, but Jack has a lot of secrets that he can't come clean about in light of Jamie's disdain for "suits" with money. Readers who enjoy lighthearted yet sensual tales will love McCarthy's latest. Maria Hatton

On the fateful day that Jamie is thrown into Jack Davidson on the subway train and crushes his bag of food to his chest in the process, the heat generated between the two of them is enough to start a forest fire. What Jamie doesn't know is that Jack is really Jonathon Davidson, retired Wall Street stockbroker and millionaire who has been following Jamie trying to figure out if she was mixed up in the illegal day trading that is being carried on at the agency where she works. He is also responsible for the Hathaway Foundation turning her Agency down for the extra funding that she had applied for because of his findings. Jack is tired of the fake society that he is a part of, where his previous girlfriends are more interested in his money than him, and finds Jamie a breath of fresh air. She is honest, truthful, sexy as all get out and a real turn on. Their first date turns out be a sizzling one, until Jamie finds out that Jack has lied about who he is and is her roommate's brother to boot. One thing she cannot tolerate is liars and Jack has done this in spades.Read more ›

Jack is working undercover and Jamie is his mark. She is his sister's best friend and when he meets her he is instantly spell bound by her curvy expressive self. Kissing her is the next best thing to heaven and it's all a lie. What will happen when she finds out the truth? It's a risk he is willing to take and the time to pay the piper comes sooner rather than later. Will she give him a second chance to prove it wasn't all a lie?
With Ms. McCarthy's trademark humor she pens a wonderfully entertaining romance that will steal the reader's hearts. Jamie and Jack are dynamic characters and their chemistry is sizzling hot yet believable. I love reading Ms. McCarthy as she always leaves me with a smile on my face at the end of her books.
Jamie and Jack are wonderful together both are sweet and kind, even if their backgrounds and social status couldn't be any farther apart. Secondary characters include a vast assortment of family and friends, all of whom play key roles in the storyline. Erin McCarthy has the unique ability to completely draw you into her books every single time. I completely lose track of everything around me when I'm reading her work. Do yourself a favor and get your hands on this book as quickly as possible, you'll have no regrets.
I must say it was a bit of a female fantasy to read a man so desperately in love that he will resort to begging and pleading in order to win the woman's heart! Of course, the fact that he was gorgeous and filthy rich made it that much better . . .
Curl up in front of the fireplace with this witty and sexy book. You will fall in love it!
Congratulations, Erin! You've done it again!
We first met these 4 roomates in Erin's The Pregnancy Test (A great book). This is the story of Jamie Peters a social worker with a big heart who seems to be a bum magnet where men are concerned... Enter a cross dressing psychic who predicts she will find the man of her dreams. She bumps into Jonathon Jack Davidson on the subway and the sparks fly. She is sure he is THE ONE... But does she KNOW Jack? This is a fast paced, fun story. All the characters capture you and you can't help but hope Erin will write another tale about the other roomates Allison and Caroline. There's a little bit of everything in this book, including several steamy sex scenes. A great book, you wont be disappointed!
Jonathon Davidson has obviously gone insane. At least, his family thinks so. Why else would he have given up a prestigious, high-paying job on Wall Street? Maybe there's hope for him yet. He may not be a hot-shot anymore, but he's still wealthy and incredibly good-looking. And he does have a job. He's a detective of sorts, looking into crimes in the world of finance. His latest case involves the social work agency where his sister's roommate, Jamie Peters, works. They've applied for funding from his family's charitable foundation, and something definitely isn't quite right with their books. Jonathon needs to make sure Jamie isn't involved in anything illegal. All he has to do is come up with a way to meet her, without revealing his true identity.
When Jamie crashes into a stranger on the subway and ruins his takeout spaghetti dinner, not to mention his shirt, alarm bells start clanging in her head. When she looks into his eyes, she knows she's in serious trouble. The gorgeous hunk introduces himself as Jack, and he's quick to forgive her for the destroyed meal. Jamie can't help but like the guy and somehow, they end up making a dinner date. Uh-oh. There was an accident, there was even food involved, but so far, no huge lie that Jamie knows of. Is he married? Gay? What's the story with Jack? He's certainly easy on the eyes and tough to resist. Definitely steamy affair material. But a soul mate? Jamie still isn't buying it.
Jack can't believe how hard he's falling for Jamie. The little white lies just keep piling up as he tries to keep her from finding out about the big whopper. He's pretty sure she would run fast and far if she knew he was not only a millionaire, but also investigating her employers. What will happen if Jamie finds out the truth? Can he convince her that Jonathon Davidson is every bit as worthy a man as his alter ego?
Erin McCarthy is a master at creating just the right blend of humor and heat. Page after page of steamy, mind-blowing encounters between Jack and Jamie are perfectly balanced with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. The more serious issue of Jamie's past and how it has affected her relationships was handled beautifully. It was easy to fall in love with Jack and understand his reasons for being less than truthful with Jamie. It was equally easy to see why his actions felt like such a betrayal to her. I hoped they would look deep inside and try to find a way to make their relationship work, in spite of its rather unconventional beginning. Very highly recommended!
