BACK COVER: HOW CAN I EVER HOPE TO ATTRACT THE MAN OF MY DREAMS WHEN HE HAS NEVER LOOKED AT ME THAT WAY?
ABIGAIL TRENT HAD NEVER INTENDED TO BE THIRTY AND STILL SINGLE. SO WHEN HER COLLEAGUE DR. GREG HASTINGS OFFERED TO HELP HER TRANSFORM FROM PRIM-AND PROPER PHYSICIAN TO IRRESISTIBLE TEMPTRESS, ABIGAIL COULDN'T REFUSE. BUT SHE NEVER EXPECTED THAT WITH JUST ONE KISS, GREG WOULD MAKE HER FEEL SO DESIRABLE AND SPECIAL. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ABIGAIL'S LIFE, SHE WAS KEENLY AWARE OF THE SENSATIONS AND LONGINGS A MAN'S TOUCH COULD EVOKE. SUDDENLY, SHE BEGAN TO HOPE THAT WHAT HAD STARTED OUT AS A CINDERELLA-ESQUE FANTASY COULD TURN INTO SOMETHING MUCH MORE....THAT MAYBE GREG WAS THE PRINCE CHARMING SHE'D BEEN WAITING FOR ALL HER LIFE TO GIVE HER INNOCENCE, AND HER HEART.
It's kinda unbelievable that Abby was too much pessimistic and passive in ways of her relations with Greg. But it's good that Greg was patient and did not push her much or I really doubt their relations may end up a disasterous one.
The second point was that I felt so touchy about the commitment and compromise Greg and Abby reached on the issue of career woman and housewife. Marriage is truly a long procedures of getting commitment and compromise, and maybe, a bit sacrafice. I am so glad to see this lovely couple having a very warm ending!!
