This funny, fast-paced romance is written from both the hero and heroine’s points of view. Clever characters keep this from being an average “woe is me” story and the circle of friends nicely sets up companion pieces. One hopes the author will flesh out the secondary characters and continue to entertain us with their love affairs in the future.

Christine has been through enough engagements — three — and it’s time to focus on her career. Men have their uses and so, why not use them? After the third near-marriage, Christine has a weekend fling with Steven and vows to keep it casual. Steven thinks they could have a future but circumstances are not in their favor. Fast forward five years and their respective careers bring them together for a news story. The spark is still hot between them. Christine’s problem is that she has not been able to move past the three disasters and give Steven the chance that they both deserve. There’s a part of her that cannot trust. Watching this relationship develop, in their own words, is very interesting and neatly done. (DAFINA, Feb., 341 pp., $14.00)
