Publisher's Summary

What would make the perfect man?
That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....
Turning to her neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaine must unmask a killer to save her friends - and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival - as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.

Oldie but Goodie!

I read this book years ago when it was first released and am now delighted it finally came out in unabridged audio! This story encompasses all the elements of a great read without having to rely on the trendy gimicks of most books today. The storyline, humor and just the right amount of heat makes this one of my LH favorites.

I LOVED LOVED the two main characters

STORY (romance/thriller) - Four girls compose a list of requirements for "The Perfect Man" while out drinking on a Friday night. Next thing they know, they're famous and being hunted by someone who wants to kill them. Then there's the romance between one of the women, Jane, and her detective neighbor Sam.

The relationship between Sam and Jane is one of my favorites of all the books I've listened to. They both have strong personalities and cutting humor, and their clever bickering is my favorite part of what is otherwise a very good book. And Sam...yeah, Sam is delicious. Their romance is fun and sexy, but sex isn't a large part of the book. Sam is, of course, trying to protect Jane and her friends, while also trying to figure out who is stalking them. You will probably enjoy everything about this book.

PERFORMANCE - Pretty good job. She tries to distinguish between characters and some of them sound a little weird but, as always, I appreciate the distinction and the effort.

OVERALL - There is probably about ten minutes of sex in this book. I would call it moderately explicit. Jane has a potty mouth, so be prepared for quite a bit of swearing. There is brutal murder, but the description isn't overly gross. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who likes romance/mysteries.

- AudioAddict "I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!"
