The bestselling author of The First Wives Club delivers a modern-day battle of the sexes-dished up with scathing wit, hilarity, and plenty of attitude. There's something magical about Billy Nolan. It's not just that the Brooklyn bar owner is wickedly handsome; it's also that any woman he dates and dumps-and he dumps them all-immediately goes on to marry the next person she meets. But Kate Jameson is immune to Billy's charms. She left Brooklyn for upward-mobility in Manhattan at the first chance she got, and she's not about to fall for some cad from the old neighborhood. But when her best friend Bina's engagement is broken off, Kate hatches a plan: All she has to do is get Billy to date and dump Bina. Then, they'll wait for Bina's wayward fianc to return and for the magic to happen. But the one thing Kate hasn't counted on is how Billy feels about the whole plot-and how she begins to feel about Billy. She may have changed her style, but her roots are showing.
