Knox Davis and a group of friends in high school survive a bus crash in the Swiss Alps. Knox is still friends with this group and they are now living in Washington, D.C. On the streets of D.C., Knox meets a beautiful, tall blonde from Alaska who turns out to be Madison Abbott, the half-sister to one of his friends. (small world?) Madison has just come to D.C. for a new job, to find her half-brother and to find a husband. Most of the story revolves around Knox and Madison’s banter and relationship. I have not read the first book of the series, but I found the characters and plot to be boring and one-dimensional. The biggest snafu in my opinion was the idea that Madison was getting a job at the Library of Congress as a librarian with an advanced degree. I also didn’t care for the meeting of the two for the first time when supposedly all they could think about was sex with each other. (On the street, three minutes after you meet someone? Come on!) The plot had no “build-up”, the character of Madison seemed to be a pushy, self-absorbed sexpot. I really couldn’t find any redeeming features of this book that I could talk about or recommend to anyone.
