fun chick lit romp Jun 30, 2004
Her students enter thirty-one years old music teacher Shelly Greene on Desperate and Dateless, a TV computerized matchmaking show hosting a contest that hypes the date of a lifetime. Shelly is not a fan of the opposite sex, believing facetiously that God performed a cosmic joke when she created males. She thinks even less of marriage. Thus, she wonders if the loot is worth standing at the altar on Valentine's Day marrying her DEAD SEXY cyber mate Kit Kincade just because if they make a go of it, the duo receives a ton of cash.
Chaperoned by a horde of Desperate and Dateless employees, Kit and Shelly go on their honeymoon to Reunion, a former French colony tropical island paradise. As the balmy island turns nasty with everything going wrong, Shelly and Kit begin to share real feelings for one another except that nothing about him is real.
Though much of the wit is HIT AND MS, chick lit fans will receive plenty of laughs especially with Shelly's one liners that make her seem at times more like a Vegas stand up comic (sorry that's Shecky Green). The story line is a lighthearted frolic that focuses on degrees of fabrication between the lead couple as a cornerstone of the relationship. Kathy Lette provides a fun romp that proves opposites attract (even when the participants are both intelligent).
