For nearly six years Gabrielle Dutton harbored a crush on boss Maxwell Bennett. Fed up with his philandering ways, however, she vows to make him take notice of her. Armed with a new wardrobe and sexy makeover, Gabrielle is out to capture Maxwell's heart. But when he finally gives in, will Gabrielle be willing to settle for what he has to offer?

In classic Bryant style, the author has created two willful and independent characters. Watching Maxwell's resistance to a committed relationship crumble is both bittersweet and enjoyable. And a subplot involving Gabrielle's offbeat sister gives the story an exciting twist. Unbelievably sexy, Can't Get Next to You is a definite winner. (Mar., 285 pp., $5.99)
