..Not Quite as Advertised.
Jocelyn McBride hates coming in second...especially coming in second to Hugh Brannon, an ex-lover and current nemesis. But the more she's around Hugh, the more she discovers a man who makes her laugh...who makes her discover something that's been missing in her life. Could it be love, like Hugh claims?
For a person convinced second best simply won't do, all of a sudden Jocelyn "Joss" McBride can't seem to win. NOt in the battles with her snippy Siamese or skirmishes with the fire-breathing dragon who's her mother. Or even more annoying, losing advertising awards and clients to the infuriating Hugh Brannon, her not-quite-perfect ex-lover who she, um, sort of lost, too.
Well, enough already.
Like any overachiever, Joss is determined to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat -- meaning beating Hugh, of course. Unfortunately, her attempts at evening the score bounce right off the Teflon man and a new suspicion dawns - if live was absolutely perfect, wouldn't it be a bore.
