Sizzle Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sizzle

Emily is an advertising executive who is marketing the perfume Sizzle. Richard is the number cruncher who has to keep Emily within her budget.When Emily and Richard get together they are so hot they sizzle. The problem is, Richard has selective hearing. When Emily decides to fight for her love by curing his deafness things really reach boiling point. This was the first book I read of Jennifer Crusie .Not only was the sex hot but the characterization complementary to the plot. The humour laced throughout the book also kept it moving at a fast pace.

The review of this Book prepared by Barbara L. Armytage

Woman meets nemesis (man) he smiles, she melts, LIKE CHOCOLATE!! She is a successful ad exec, he is the new man in charge of keeping all ads under-budget, a serious problem for Emily, who has never met budget yet!! She is determined to dislike the man, and he is determined to seduce her, and the scene on the conference room table is one of the funniest yet!! a MUST read, if only to find out where her new silk panties end up!! This is one of the FUNNIEST, sexiest stories I have ever read!!
