Max is unique, desperate for love and didn't even know it. He finds his exact opposite and both have to learn how to give, take and share. An entertaining book about Max and Lucy.

Lucy is a big hearted woman running a charitable business who finds herself drawn to Max, the man she has tricked into voluteering to get back his lucky suit. A good fun read with lots of great characters.

Frankly, I'm tired of the mismatched pairing of "flaky, new age chick meets button-down, out-of-touch-with his feelings, successful businessman." I've just read this story with these same characters too many times. I'm bored with it already.

That said, the writing is good and I'm willing to give this author another shot at engaging me with a less trite story.

*Starred Review* Max Nolan has a closet full of designer suits but only one "lucky" suit, which he wears to broker deals and make career-level decisions. Then the unthinkable happens. His current lover decides that if Max's business wardrobe disappears, he'll spend more "fun" time with her, so she dumps all of his clothes into the nearest donation collection box. Max is upset, especially about losing his precious lucky suit. Purple-haired, multipierced Lucy Logan is thrilled that someone has donated so many designer suits to her charity, Successfully Dressed. When Max demands his wardrobe back, she tells him he has to "earn" it by performing five days of volunteer work. Soon the zany, laid-back female and the conventional, uptight male discover that there are many things to respect--and even love--about each other. A cool cast of secondary characters adds much to the story as clever Plumley, who is already known for her entertaining romantic comedies, presents another winner in this humorous and engaging tale about a man who literally loses his shirt, but finds his heart.
