    Marla Meyers is the clumsy supermodel that is forced to take out a policy for herself to protect the agency. Tom Riley is apparently the only insurance agent dumb enough to write it. When his company finds out, he is forced to be Marla's bodyguard. But is someone out to get her? All the suspects are there. The book is written like an old Sam Spade episode, but all tongue in cheek. Completely unbelievable, but very fun.

    I liked this book. How refreshing that the ordinary male character wasn't threatened by the higher income of the female character. Not a great plot, but intelligent characters and amusing dialoge. I liked this book. How refreshing that the ordinary male character wasn't threatened by the higher income of the female character.

    The main thrilling plot was too short, but it was a good read!

    I needed to read this romance book for my book club, and it was good, as far as romance books go (I am not a big fan of this genre). Its saving grace is that it was part romance, part mystery. A very handsome, but very poor, insurance man gets a visit from a beautiful model whose agency wants her to insure her "face" because she has been having accidents. Our poor insurance man writes her a policy, but then is told by his company that he needs to "watch out" for her for 30 days to protect their I needed to read this romance book for my book club, and it was good, as far as romance books go (I am not a big fan of this genre).

What follows is a sometimes funny, sometimes mysterious and sometimes romantic story.

    This is a pleasant, light-hearted read. Though there was no desperate pull to getting back to reading the book each time I put it down, I still enjoyed it. The story is rather superficial, in my opinion, but not in a bad way. It's good for someone who is looking to take a break from serious novels. It's predictable in some parts, while others threw me off a little. Descriptions in settings are not the most detailed, but they are not necessary in this comical, breezy book.

    I saw this book in my library and it was a book I bought ages ago. I figured it needed to be read! The beginning starts off right in the action and it continues to build. There's a lot of good content and characters. I was really surprised, given the genre, that there was a lot of character depth. The mystery subplot was a nice touch too. Glad I read this and hope to read more of her work!! I saw this book in my library and it was a book I bought ages ago. I figured it needed to be read!

    Solid plot. The tone switch for the two characters was unfortunately inconsistent (Tom varied from normal to noir, while Marla’s was much more consistent), but that wasn’t a major drawback.
