When Courtney places a personal ad in Attitudes, seeking a valentine for her older sister, a fellow classmate by the name of Jeff responds. These high school seniors are determined their elder siblings will put personal relations ahead of work. And if they have to say they are getting married to achieve the desired response, then that’s just what they will do.
Jeff’s brother has life all planned out for him, believing his younger ex-step brother should follow in his footsteps. Likewise, Brook refuses to allow her younger sister to follow her dream of attending acting school. So Jeff and Brook decide that if they can get their elder siblings dating, they might gain more control over their lives and their plans for the future. But when a casual introduction becomes impossible, Jeff and Courtney announce they are getting married, bringing Brook and Chase into tremendous conflict.
PERSONAL RELATIONS is over the top on the risqué meter! I giggled from beginning to end, and the bit about the panties had me rolling! The tension and the sizzle of this novel is extraordinary. MacAllister has gift for making the risqué funny. These characters are believable, humorous and delightful. And the unexpected twist at the end certainly caught me by surprise. Very highly recommended. —c.penn
