Sexiest Man Alive - Diana Holquist (Contemporary Romance)
Released October 2007
While she's gained many clients by doing seamstress work out of her home, Jasmine Burns doesn't want the opportunity of a lifetime to pass her by. Famed costume designer Arturo Mastriani is hiring and she wants the job. The problem is Jasmine lacks self-confidence, especially around men.
Surprisingly, especially to herself, Jasmine wows Arturo after she runs out of her interview and leaves her design books behind. She lands the job and learns she will be working closely with Hollywood heartthrob Josh Toby, the name given by Jasmine's psychic sister as being Jasmine's one true love. Jasmine's nerves are making it hard to be around Josh, but it's obvious there's a spark if only she could find a way to feel comfortable around him.
Sexiest Man Alive has been sitting on my shelf for years. I don't know what kept me from reading it. Jasmine, despite her insecurities, is a lot of fun and Josh definitely oozes sex appeal. It was obvious once I started reading that this was not the first time Jasmine's been in a book. Turns out that Jasmine's sister, Cecelia, was the leading lady in 2006's Make Me a Match. Amy, the psychic sister, also appeared in her own book in 2008's Hungry for More.
I found the romance and storyline in Sexiest Man Alive to be quite charming. I don't know that I'd put it on my keeper list, but it's been out long enough that you'll find it for a bargain. For that reason, it's definitely worth reading during your down time.
