Overview

Jack Carter, born-again virgin and bestselling romance author, has a problem, and her name is Molly. Foisted upon him by his sister, Molly has just been fired from her high-paying management position for sexually harassing her male assistant. She's also been evicted from her apartment, and has landed-for just a few weeks, she promises-in Jack's Georgetown town house. Worse yet, she decides to take advantage of her new environment and try her hand at writing romances herself, using the pseudonym Molly Desire. Molly's novel is racy and explicit, and blows the covers off Jack's tender and traditional plots and relationships. Just how far will their professional (and personal) competition go?

    Hysterical

    I read Nina Killham's first book, HOW TO COOK A TART and loved it. This second book, MOUNTING DESIRE, is hysterical. Killham creates characters that seem so real and puts them into situations that seem so absurd. Even though she introduces many characters throughout the book (actually caricatures in many cases, such as the male cover model) the reader is able to follow along easliy. That is until you start laughing so hard you drop the book and lose your place. I can¿t wait to read her next book and see what she sends up next.

    Not what I expected

    Thought this book was terrible. It bounced around so much, it was very hard to follow.

    This is the first book that I ever literally tossed in the garbage. I kept reading, thinking it would improve, but found myself liking it even less. The the story line far fetched and the writing was confusing. A disaster!!

    I am an avid reader and enjoy the unusual and off beat, but this book was just awful. The author kept trying to outdo each previous chapter but all it added up to was an inconsistent and foolish read. It was impossible to warm to or understand any of the characters and the story line was extremely convoluted.
