Jordan hasn't been able to stop thinking about Becca since their steamy encounter in the elevator. He is determined to have her again but when she shoots down his proposition, Jordan decides to get creative. But over the course of the week, Jordan realizes it isn't only sex that holds his interest and with every pick-up line the stakes get higher. This time, Jordan is playing for keeps.

Not all erotic romance is about the sex. Sometimes it's about the chase and in this short Gordon hits the thrill of the chase. Most pick up lines are cheesy, overused and never work, but Gordon's sense of humor gives the traditional pick up lines new life. The humor she has and the wit seen throughout the novel made me chuckle.

Jordan Murphy and Becca Clarke had a tryst on an elevator and neither can get the other out of his or her mind. Jordan is more obvious whereas Clarke remains aloof. Every morning while Becca buys her coffee, Jordan is waiting with a new pick up line. My favorite line was “You have something in your eye...nope, just a sparkle.” You have to give men credit when they say phrases like this and Gordon needs to be given credit for her book.

It is a quick read with fun, fabulous humor and realistic characters. The way Jordan's persistence finally pays off and Becca's easy going mannerisms. Every chapter had a new pick up line and I quickly learned to anticipate Jordan's next one. I enjoyed this novel because the characters didn't physically start off in bed rather the implications of their encounter were discussed.
