The basic story is Melanie ends up in Edgar's bed where his brother was supposed to be and she feels a real connection for the first time in her vapid shallow life. She fights her feelings of course once she realizes it's Edgar (her terminally friend-zoned nerd BFF) but of course comes around just in time for the required happy ending.
For the problems with the book, the first is it should not have been part of the Blaze line. The Blaze line represents their steamier more risqué books and this just was not it. It was a more just a ho-hum below average novel that should have part of one of their tamer book lines.
Then there were the problems with the story. First off a good third of the story didn't even involve the hero/heroine - it was about her mother's attempt to reconcile with her daughter and her own new relationship. Then there was the odd issue (for me anyway) where the heroine thinks of the hero as her best friend and yet knows nothing about him. Not his hopes, history, or interests outside of work. Nothing at all. And he knows nothing about hers either. Rather odd for two people who are supposed to be so close. These were just a couple of the bigger issues (of which there were many).
As a final note, something I found rather distracting was Edgar works as a graphic artist/designer in an advertising agency along with Melanie. He's even thinking of returning to school for his MFA and starting his own company. Yet the reason he dresses badly with such mismatched colors is because he is completely colorblind? I just didn't get that.
