Love is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
Barbara Whitehall, founder of DateSmart, believes she has formulated the perfect approach to successful coupling. But after an awkward introduction to Jake Mancini a martial arts instructor, biology begins breaking down barriers to edge out Barbara's common sense approach to courtship.
Forever Material is a light hearted romantic comedy on the surface but it has rich layering that you may not expect from the genre. It cleverly explores the psychology of attraction. By the end you understand why the characters are the way they are. And the mental and physical seduction percolating between the lines is delicious.
The story is laced with flirty banter and although it's set in the present, it has a timeless feel.
If you enjoy movies like, His Girl Friday, Serendipity, He's Just Not That Into You and The Proposal, or if you like books like Sohpie Kinsella's Confessions of a Shopaholic, Gemma Townley `s Learning Curves, Wendy Markham's Slightly Engaged, or Zoe Rice's Pick Me Up, I suspect you'll enjoy Athena Grayson's Relationship Material.
Oh and did I mention a dessert description in the story actually made my mouth water?
