Her tall, dark, and deliciously dangerous boss . . .

When the delightful, daffy Dog Lady of station WZZZ offered to take on the temporary job of traffic reporter, Steve Crow tried to think of reasons to turn Daisy Adams down. Perhaps he knew that sharing the close quarters of a car with her for hours would give the handsome program director no room to resist her quirky charms. He'd always favored low-slung sportscars and high-heeled women, but that was before he fell for a free spirit who caught crooks by accident, loved old people and pets, and had just too many jobs!

Loving Daisy turned Steve's life upside down, especially once he adopted Bob, a huge dog masquerading as a couch potato. But was Daisy finally ready to play for keeps?

My rating:

This was my first venture in Ms. Evanovich's writing world, but it won't be the last, because I loved this little number. It was funny, sweet, over-the-top, sexy, hilarious, outrageous...Yes, I loved it.

Sure, it had a few moments where I wanted to strangle the heroine for being a twit, the whole love-at-the-thousandth-sight was a bit unbelievable, and the suspense sub-plot even more so, but I loved the hero, loved Bob (that turned out not to be Bob after all), and I absolutely adored Elsie with her indestructible Caddie.

A funny, quick read, perfect for those times when you're not really sure what to read next.
