By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general. 

This Would Be a 5 Star Review, Except for the Heroine's Tiresome Body Image Issues

Bet Me - Jennifer Crusie

This is another one I re-read about once a year, and I love everything about it EXCEPT the heroine's food/body image issues, discussion of which takes up a fair amount of text and detracts from an otherwise near-perfect book. As with most Crusie books, there's A LOT going on in this one -- not just the romance between the primary couple, Min and Cal, but also flirtations between their friends Bonnie and Roger and Liza and Tony; and scheming by Min's and Cal's respective exes, David and Cynthie, plus preparations and drama surrounding the upcoming wedding of Min's sister Diana, plus Min and Cal both have mommy- and daddy-issues -- but it all comes together in the end.
