This book disappointed me. I thought the idea was great. The book pairs two radio personalities, a feminist and a chauvenist, in a house together for a week and broadcasts their antics live. Unbeknownst to the producers, the two had been lovers years before. Good concept, but overall poorly written, in my opinion. The character development could have been better. Both characters pretty much stuck to their 'roles' of feminist and chauvenist. Half the time you wondered why he even put up with her whining or why she could stand someone who cared so little about women. However the author did manage to write some sizzling love scenes as well as tie in a secondary romance story based upon two devoted callers having struggles of their own. Overall it had a promising story line that fell short, but is a good beach read if you're lookin for something mindless to enjoy on your vacation.Was this review helpful?

I really enjoyed reading this book. I found not only the flow was great timing wise between the two seperate actions going on (Olivia and Matt & Dawg and JoBeth). In the end it was real predictable, but I enjoyed it. The romantic tention flew off the page, and it is definitely a must read for anyone who is looking for something contemporary and still in the romance genre. If you're tired of Danielle Steele and the like, this book is for you. I recommend it to anyone. The best part about it is that it's the first book I've read in a long time that took place in this day and age. It gets tiresome reading books that take place in the 1900's when this is 2003. The way the characters each had their own distinct voice was impressive, and all the technical things about the radio station were acurate. I wanted to tell that Station Manager where to go by the end of the book. I will be waiting for her next book anxiously.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Radio personality Matt Ransom hosted Atlanta's raucous, testosterone-fueled 'Guy Talk'. Dr. Olivia Moore hosted a morning talk show at the same radio station called 'Liv Live'. She helped her listeners with their problems. Both have their contracts due for renewal at the same time. But the station can only afford to keep one. Their ratings were almost identical. How to choose? How to choose? ............... The sleazy PR man decided on a week long contest. It would be a combination of the reality TV shows 'Big Brother' and 'Survival'. Matt and Olivia were to be sealed into a very tiny apartment for seven days and seven nights. The public could view the apartment on the internet thanks to a webcam. That same public would decide upon the winner. ............... Things were hotter for the two than anyone knew though. Matt and Olivia had once been lovers! And the heat is on ... ............... ***** A hilarious and romantic romp that is unforgettable! I laughed all the way through it. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?
