"Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillip's Nobody's Baby But Mine will go for this hilarious romp, too." Booklist

Big blond wig. Do-me shoes. A bra that could serve as a floatation device. She's about to take her genius IQ for a walk on the bimbo side.

Someone's pilfering company secrets at Just Peachy, a giant cosmetics firm owned by hunky Steve Smith. When he decides to do some undercover security in disguise as "Stephanie" Smith, his sister Leah, a sociologist working on her doctorate, grabs her own undercover opportunity to prove her theory that nerds stand no chance in the world. She interviews for a low-level security job first as "Leah the super-nerd" then as "Candi Devereaux," a stereotypical out-to-there bimbo. To her shock, security specialist Mark Colson hires both of her

Mark isn't fooled-Leah/Candi are obviously the same woman, a suspicious character, and quite likely the corporate thief. He'll stay very close to her . . .

As for Leah, the highly unsettling and extremely irresistible Mr. Colson begins to rattle all her assumptions about what a man wants from a woman. It's about honesty, unfortunately . . .

In the meantime, "Stephanie" has met his match in corporate rival Kate Bloom, who is determined to best the smart new woman in the company. And yet, Kate feels flustered by Stephanie's strangely masculine appeal . . .

Trish Jensen is the USA Today bestselling author of STUCK WITH YOU. Look for more funny and romantic Trish Jensen novels coming soon from Bell Bridge Books. Visit Trish at TrishJensen.com.

Leah Smith, a lifelong nerd, conducts research for her doctoral disseration on women in the workplace by disguising herself as a sexy employee. The experiment should prove who fares better in the workplace: the brassy bimbo or the plain Jane. Matters get complicated when Mark Colson, the company security specialist, thinks she is a corporate spy posing as two different women.

    The Vistiors By: Gracie

    ((This is the second part to The Lone Traveler. Enjoy!!)) <p> The Visitors. <br> When all the sudden.....Cyrus and Kenny hear a loud snapping of a twig being broke. Cyrus shot up, alarmed. "What was that?" Kenny whispered. "I don't know, but we should probably check it out. Come on." Cyrus and Kenny both puled out a dagger, and headed towards the sound slowly. A black wolf looked up his eyes dark blue with a tint of green, it slowly walked up to Kenny and sniffed his shoe and the Cyrus' shoe. "It's just a wolf." The wolf growled and howled as five other wolfs stepped out of thevdarkened woods and made their way to the black wolf, they stood behind the leader wolf. "W-what's going on?" Kenny backed away, whispering. "I don't know, just don't move or-" Cyrus was cut off by the large black wolf attackdd him to the ground, and hovered over him, baring his teeth. "Cyrus! Help!" All the other five wolf have pocitioned themselves around Kenny, and stood firmly. "I can't I'm fighting off this one." Cyrus hissed, and stbed the black wolf in the stomach wih his hidden blade. The wolf cowered to the ground, gasping for air, he transformed back to a man with sandy blond hair, with a large tan body and crystal blue eyes. "David?" Kenny gasped as the other wolfs made their way to their leader. "Yes, I couldn't control it." David grabbed his stomach in pain, and curled up. Kenny, Cyrus and the other wolves carried David to the campsite and sat him down on a torn blanket......

    Phi Beta Funny!

    Ok, sorry, I couldn't resist. Seriously, the test of a good book is the ability to put it away and reread a couple of years later. I bought this book in 2004 and loved it. I picked it up a week ago, shoved it into my purse to combat the boredom of the dreaded doctor's office waiting room syndrome(sheer boredom!). I had to stop myself from laughing aloud many many times. It also gave me the idea of moving to the D.C. area and snapping up an ex FBI man, but that's another story. For anyone who is a hottie trapped in an attractive and very intelligent shell, this is the book for you.

    Very Funny

    I thought that this was a very funny story. I really liked the main characters Leah and Mark. I also liked Gramps and Shelley who are very similar despite their age difference. If you're looking for a funny and romantic story this is a good pick.

    Laugh Out Loud Funny

    Brainiac Leah goes undercover in her brother's cosmetic company as a research project to learn how the 'other' half lives-the big busted, dim-witted half of the female species. When the sexy head of security catches on to her little game of dressup, laughs happen! With the underlying problem of corporate espionage driving the story forward, this book gives the reader a rollicking good time and loads of laughs with a likable cast of characters.

    Phi Beta Bimbo

    To prove that when men assess women their top criteria is her sex appeal, Leah Smith conducts an experiment, donning a bimbo-esque disguise to interview for a job in her brother's company then interviewing as herself. Making it more interesting is wager she and Steve make on the outcome. Steve's security expert picks up on the fact that both Candi- with an i and Leah are the same person immediately, especially when Candi's disguise- deflates. However, not letting on that he knows, Mark tries to date both versions of her to see if she is the mole in Steve's cosmetic company. Mark does not realize, though, that Leah is merely carrying on a family tradition of going incognito; for corporate purposes, her macho brother is also his own twin sister. .......................................... ................. ......................... **** If you resolved to exercise this year, laughter is a great exercise, so pick up this book- and you can read and exercise at the same time by giggling. This story works on two levels, basic laugh out loud humor and sharp satire that appeals to the intelligence as well. ****

    A Great Laugh Out Loud Read

    Brainy Leah is pretending to be Barbie doll Candi. Her brother Steve is pretending be Stephanie. This is just the beginning of the story which continues with everyone trying to track down a corporate spy. Ms. Jensen's newest book is absolutely a not to be missed book. You will not be able to put it down and when you are done you will still be giggling. I have only 2 questions for Ms. Jensen 1.) when we will get Shelley's story and 2.) which Sandra Hill book was Shelley reading?

    A delighful romp

    Sociology graduate student Leah Smith decides to conduct a comparative analysis research study for her doctorate; her subject is to compare a bimbo to a nerd in the work place. To obtain data, Leah accepts two interviews under different names for employment at Just Peachy, her brother's cosmetics firm..................... For one appointment she arrives dressed and acting like a ¿classic¿ bimbo; for the other she behaves as a nerd. Her sibling Steve hired security specialist Mark Colson to determine who in his successful company is selling secrets to competitors. Mark notices that the bimbo and the nerd are the same person. Leah is his prime suspect for why else would she pretend to be two other people besides herself.................. The anecdotal approach seems lacking in terms of statistics, but not in terms of a wacky wonderful contemporary romance. The story line is fun as Leah as the student, the bimbo, and the nerd drives Mark to distraction. Though he suspects she is the culprit, he also finds he loves her in her two distinctive poses, but mostly for her energetic self. Adding to the insanity is that Steve to succeed in a female world comes up with Stephanie as his alter ego. PHI BETA BIMBO is a cross dressing laugh out loud romp................. Harriet Klausner
