The spark was undeniable the night Sandy Burke met the devastatingly handsome Jake. Conversation had flowed easily, so after they'd parted, she'd waited eagerly for his call. It never came. A high-powered career woman at the ripe old age of twenty-seven, Sandy feels she has had her heart broken one too many times, and now the redheaded trendsetter is facing a major quarter-life crisis. After some introspection, Sandy determines that helping others may be the key to helping herself. When she's presented with a job offer in Washington DC as the director of New Horizons, a nonprofit organization benefiting women in poverty, it seems providential. But now that she's moved, two major obstacles threaten the success of her first assignment. The first is her mother and her constant fog of less-than-helpful New-Age advice. Secondly, plans to build another New Horizons outreach center have come to a screeching halt, thanks to the interference of a pesky lawyer and his attempts to reverse zoning approval for the building project. After weeks of verbal sparring over the phone, Sandy is in for a shock when she comes face-to-face with her foe. The smooth voice at the other end of the line is a heart wrenching blast from the past. In this twist of fate, Sandy sees the perfect opportunity to ensure the success of the outreach center-and to enact a little payback on this man she thought she'd left behind. And so the battle of wits begins. Will Sandy's 'flirt-to-convert' plot sway her nemesis's determination to block the center, or will his charming and undeniably attractive ways convince the sassy redhead to give love a second chance?

First off, how cute is this cover?!  I want those shoes. Second, I grew up in the D.C. area and could identify with some of the things the characters experienced, like working long hours to keep up with the demands, schmoozing, knowing the right people.  I love where I grew up, but frankly it was too fast paced for me and I like a quieter lifestyle.   Third, the story has enough twists that I really didn't know where the author was going to take it.  I wasn't sure whether there would be a happy ending or not. Fourth, I read Twitterpated and the main character in this book is a secondary character in that book.  I liked continuing her story. Warnings: None I would let my 15 year old read this book, however, I don't think she could identify with the subject.

I love all of Melanie Jacobson's books and this one was no exception. It was not my favorite of hers, but I still really enjoyed it. The couple was at odds because their jobs clashed. They cared about each other but both of them were passionate about their line of work and thought that what they were doing was the right thing. Relationships are about compromises. There was humor and I read anxiously wondering how it would all work out so they could have their happy ending.

Oh my word this was a long, painful book. All the couple did the entire book was complain and fight with one another! I wish I had been able to find one review out there anywhere. Do not waste your money on this book!
