Tom and Meggie have been best friends forever. They’ve been in love with each other for almost as long, but neither one has ever admitted it to the other. Now they work together at the Plush Life Toys, the company Tom started where Meggie is the head of sales.
Meggie’s engaged to Mark, a successful doctor, but she’s having serious second thoughts. However, before she and Tom can talk about it, they get a strange offer from their make-or-break client – go to New Orleans and convince the head of the powerful Family Mart megastore chain that Plush Life is the right kind of company to be one of their vendors. The only catch? Family Mart is the poster company for family values, and Tom and Meggie have to be married or they won’t be approved.
Meggie can’t tell Mark why she has to cancel their weekend plans because Mark doesn’t like that she and Tom are friends. What Meggie and Tom don’t know, though, is that Mark is aware of a secret that affects Meggie’s life – and he and his friends will do anything they have to in order to ensure Mark gets to marry her.
Now Tom and Meggie have to figure out their feelings for each other while trying to keep the eccentric head of Family Mart believing that they’re happy newlyweds. But when Mark and his friends get involved they put Meggie’s life and sanity in jeopardy, and only Tom, a street thief, and the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans are going to be able to save Meggie from the devil himself.
By Loki, I want to hit Mark with something...a baseball bat might just to the trick. What an evil conniving SOB.
But let's go back first.
Meggie is dating Mark (whom I hate). She is best friends with Tom (who is really sweet, and they should totally be together, stupid people for not seeing it). They also work together, and now they must go and try to woo a client together.
But Mark is an ahole.
And the client is weeeeeird.
It kept me reading cos I kept hoping someone would hit Mark with a baseball bat. Also cos it was good and I hoped Meggie and Tom would hook up.
Though Tom says baby waaaaaay too much. Srsl, stop, it's creeping me out.
Also Meggie, damn you got issues.
Also, you two are really unlucky, like hello, other people..hello!
I am being cryptic. Oh whatever, it's late and I want to hit Mark in the head with a baseball bat, and before you say anything, trust me, you would want that too...trust me.
I could even call this romantic suspense with humour cos there is suspense so let's go with that. If you want romance, humour and suspense then go for it.
