SURPRISE ME ...
SURPRISE ME ... (4.5) by Isabel Sharpe: Graphic designer Melanie Hawthorne likes men -- lots of them. Her latest lust interest, a musician named Stoner, is the brother of her co-worker and friend, nerdy Edgar Raymond. Hooking up with Stoner -- in Edgar's bed, in the dark -- is a revelation. Because the man she has world-class sex with isn't Stoner, it's Edgar. Once he convinces her it's true, they make a deal: if Melanie still wants Stoner after three dates with Edgar, he'll step aside. It doesn't take Melanie that long to realize Edgar really loves her, and she's got commitment issues, big time! Well plotted, amusing yet emotionally complex, this one's a keeper.
