Katie Peterson is a radio DJ with an interesting job. Monday through Friday nights, after the nine o'clock news, her job is to host Talking About Sex, a radio show devoted to all things sexual. When her guest turns out to be Dr. Janice Astorbrooke, things really get interesting. Discussing the sexual symbolism in architecture, Katie can't help but be drawn into conversation about the high-rise being built next to the KRZE studios. The fact that Jess Harken of Harken Construction is in charge of building it only adds to her mix of misery and come-uppance: Jess was the boy who turned down her sexual offers on prom night all those years ago, and there's no time like the present to let him know exactly how she feels. The fact that she gets to broadcast her scathing innuendos on the airwaves only adds to her glee.
For Jess, he's always found Katie's show funny and interesting - until the night she starts suggesting that any man building a forty-story building must be compensating for something sexual-wise. Sure, he remembers Katie, even remembers how and why he turned down her offer on prom night. But he and Katie are adults now, and if he wants to ask her out-strictly to get her into bed to prove that there is nothing wrong with him in the slightest in that department - it's his business. When Katie takes him up on his offer - sex, no-strings-attached - Jess feels like he's died and gone to heaven. The only problem is, keeping his feelings out of the picture is turning out to be a whole lot harder than he'd planned.
As Katie and Jess experiment with some of the advice she dishes out nightly from the Kama Sutra, these two tough-minded individuals discover that the sparks between them never went out when it comes to sex. Now that their hearts are creeping into the picture, things have gotten a little more complicated. Now they're not just TALKING ABOUT SEX - they're edging towards love.
Ms. Thompson has written another winning Blaze story - hot, passionate, full of steam, with an entertaining couple and story at it's center. I enjoyed not only Katie and Jess and their bickering, but the back-story as to why Jess turned Katie down all those years ago, and why Katie is so determined to save the station from relocating.
Another steamy winner, TALKING ABOUT SEX is sure to please!
