The Next Big Thing
When Harry the inventor shows up at her bank to apply for a loan, Angela is not impressed by his lack of business plan or collateral. So Harry introduces her to his own brand of marketing by having her try the product herself – the only bra in the world that’s more fun to put on than take off.
The bank might not buy Harry’s idea, but the “support” he has given Angela convinces her to boost his business in return, and they team up to raise enough funds to make Harry’s dream take off. Angela and Harry give each other such a rise that it’s love or bust for the bra-ntrepreneurs as they realize they make a great pair.
The inspiration for the story was a Canadian engineer who invented the world's most popular sex toy.

4 stars. "This is a cute light romance. It has the rich-meets-poor aka upstairs-meets-downstairs motif—the Muskoka setting, a beautiful northern lake region, is a perfect backdrop for this. The characters are fun, and the romance teases and gets hot. The main character Rachel is a hoot—she grows on you and you appreciate her wit, drive and sensitivity." —S.Diana2, iBooks
