|Plot Summary of The Sex Was Great But…|
Red Dress, Aug 2004, 12.95, 336 pp.
“Her Voice” magazine acclaims that makeover show host Holly Klein has been voted the “shallowest woman in Hollywood”. When she goes to run some errands, people curse her and someone steals her pursue. Homeless Leo Monroe recovers her purse, diaphragm and all.
Holly's producer and perhaps only real friend Nancy Catkin thinks Leo is perfect to provide a make over to Holly's battered image. The plan is to give the street hero a make over on her program. Leo reluctantly agrees thinking that this might be his ticket back to England and besides it will gives him a few weeks of luxury in her elite home with a pool. Neither anticipated an attraction between the glitter star and the pauper, but the sex deserves its own square on the Walk of Fame as even Holly wonders whether the relationship deserves decades beyond her show.
Chick lit fans will appreciate this lighthearted Hollywood romp between the “Princess” and the Pauper. Though the plot seems inane yet amusing on the surface, the story line has a serious undertone involving the homeless that works well because of Leo contrasts the two worlds, minutes apart yet zillions of lifestyles away. Thus Leo undergoes a physical makeover, but the shallowest person on the planet is actually the one that changes as he and his misfit associates touch the untouchable heart of Holly.
