A close encounter with old boyfriend Hugh Brannon at an awards dinner is a fitting end to Joss McBride's awful day. But the worst is yet to come—their respective advertising firms merge soon afterward, forcing them to walk a fine line between competition and cooperation. Unresolved issues—and heat—complicate things, and Hugh and Joss just can't get together—until both do some soul-searching and realize what's truly important. Tanya Michaels puts her unique stamp on Not Quite as Advertised (4), giving a classic plot a shake and making the driven Joss and Hugh multidimensional characters instead of caricatures.
