Sexiest Man Alive-Diana Holquist

Sexiest Man Alive
Diana Holquist
Warner Forever, Oct 2007, $6.99
ISBN: 9780446617987

Costume designer Jasmine Burns has a hunk-phobia as she freezes when it comes to sexy men. She knows this is not a good condition to have when part of your job description is to dress and undress stars. Now her psychic sister Amy (although at times psycho is more descriptive) insists Jas’ true love is movie star Josh Toby. Jas knows how accurate Amy is though she ponders whether she is fulfilling the prophecy by believing in her sister.

Jas already knows she has troubles coming as she is his dresser and costume designer on his latest movie though she will freeze up and not be able to speak to him. Desperate she searches for another Josh Toby and finds one, a librarian, who thinks she is a lunatic. Meanwhile Josh the actor-hunk knows he and Jasmine are soul mates, but to persuade her they are a perfect match seems impossible.

Contemporary readers will rejoice with the return of the Burns sisters (see MAKE ME A MATCH) as the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE is an amusing entertaining romance. Much of the zany fun comes from the downside of knowing who your true love is yet unable to utter two coherent words in his presence. Diana Holquist provides a humorous tale with lovable characters enhanced by the paranormal.
