Sandy is a twentysomething executive on the fast track at work and looking for love in her personal life. T.J. is the object of her affection, a jazz pianist who prefers to keep his romances casual--but who may be facing the real deal in Sandy. Bebe is Sandy's confidante, a bank supervisor who is struggling through her self-imposed "sex sabbatical". Speed is T.J.'s father and best friend, a man who isn't too old to learn a few things from his son. Together these four weave a funny, touching, and vivid tale of coping with the ups and downs of everyday life in Chicago that readers won't soon forget.

I went into reading the novel with much optimism. The plot appeared to be interesting. However, the book did not meet my expectations. There was very little development of the characters as well as the relationship between T.J. and Sandy. There was no depth and that fact alone made the book pointless to me. Very generic. Overall, I was disappointed.
