|Plot Summary of Opposites Attract|
Avon, Jun 2003, 5.99, 384 pp.
New Orleans socialite Jonni Landry DeVries wonders why she did it. It was obviously a moment of lunacy that made her open her mansion to a Hollywood film crew. Jonni has spent the past year in mourning, but not for her deceased philandering spouse. Instead she grieves what he did to her once vibrant personality so that Jonni has not recently helped in the care of their five-year-old child, let alone nurturing her daughter.
The tabloids love following Cameron Scott, the star of the children's film being made on location in Jonni's home. Known for his womanizing ways, Cameron and Jonni are attracted to one another. However, she refuses to get involved with another bad boy while all he wants is the role of a lifetime starring with her.
Though quite engaging at times due mostly to the hero, readers will be hard pressed to find any empathy towards the lead female protagonist. Not only is Jonni wallowing, but also ignoring her child leaves her open to animosity as a worthless rich bi*ch. Still, Scott is a delightful character and somewhat carries the tale with some help by the daughter of his beloved. He is a hunk who somehow manages to break through Jonni's barrier of self-pity.
