THE REAL THING
By the end of this book, readers won't feel as if they've just read a 300-plus- page story; they will feel as if they've just gotten off the phone with a close friend who's experienced the romance of a lifetime. You'll be drawn in by the steamy love scenes, the imagery and symbolism, and the desire and need to fight for what you deserve. Simply put, this book is funny, engaging and an excellent read.
Christiana Artis is tired of writing puff pieces on celebrities, until she flies to Canada to interview an Italian boxer making a comeback after 10 years. Dante Lattanza challenges her: If she performs five tasks, she can ask him five questions. Their mutual attraction may be thwarted, however, by Lattanza's ex-wife and his real reason for returning to the ring. (KENSINGTON, Apr., 336 pp., $15.00)
