Strange Bedpersons

About The Book:
Written by Jennifer Crusie Published Year 1994
Tess Newhart knows her ex-boyfriend Nick Jamieson isn't the right guy for her. He's caviar and champagne, she's take-out Chinese pot stickers. He's an uptight Republican lawyer, she was raised in a commune and thinks Cinderella is politically incorrect. He wants to get ahead in business, she just wants him -- only not the social-climbing Nick, but the sweet, caring, unbuttoned-down Nick. Nick wants her, too, but there's no way Tess is about to play second fiddle to his obsession to make partner. Yet somehow she finds herself agreeing to play his fiancée for a weekend business trip that could make or break Nick's career. And while he's wrapped up in convincing Tess that he needs her in his respectable world, Tess is doing her best to keep her left-wing opinions to herself and her hands off Nick.

Weird characters; Tess and Nick are the opposite extremes of one another and their friends are just totally pathetic. It can be funny at times, and do have witty dialogues but the ridiculousness of the situation overwhelms me.
