This book was sort of neat because its written from two point of views in 1st person.
Megan vs Jack
Megan's point of view:
Jack's my oldest friend. Or he was ... until we did it. Big mistake! It ruined everything between us. Because he only did it becuase he felt sorry for me. And he's a guy, so sex was obvious consolation.
Now? I am so over him.
Still, I've got to redecorate his place. We'll simply be professional and stay out of each other's way.
Jacks point of view:
I want my friend Megan back. That's it.
Okay - truth?
I want more - a lot more.
I mean, we're fantastic together. I don't understand why she stopped returning my calls. How do I apologize when I'm not sure what I did?
I just wish someone could tell me what's going on...
From an Amazon review by Harriet Klausner: "The tale of the tapes is Jack Spencer vs. Megan Sullivan, best friends until they shared sex last New Year's Eve. Jack thought that was the greatest moment of his life; to Megan that was the worst moment in her life. He thought his best pal would become his life mate while she felt he tossed her some pity sex because she was depressed having just been jilted. Instead of a loving relationship, she ended their friendship.
Jack, a TV hunk who can have just about any woman, decides he needs opportunity to win her heart so he hires a reluctant Megan to redecorate his Manhattan apartment. With the help of her Machiavelli mother Jack declares the war of the sexes with one goal in mind; Megan will be his forever. As for her part, Megan struggles between her desire for Jack, her memory of what she believes was his feel sorry sex with her and the horde of women chasing after him.
Though She Said, He Said has been used a lot in movies and books, Cheryl Kushner refreshes the plot line with the escapades of her lead duo that alternate retelling the same incident from totally different perspective; readers will think of Men from Mars and Women from Venus. Jack is heroic in his efforts to persuade Megan he truly wanted her then and needs her at his side (and in their bed) for ever. Readers will be a bit frustrated with Megan for not seeing the obvious yet will also empathize with her confusion as to why her heart wants Jack as a friend and lover."
This book was as nice surprise! I got it on Saturday and by Sunday evening it was finished. Well ok, it is a rather small novel but I couldn't put it down...I just HAD to know what would happen next! If it wasn't for the fact that I have two children I would have lied in bed all day to finish it Saturday,the I recieved it.
