Tess is a bleeding heart liberal who grew up on a commune, calls her parents by her their first names, and despises everything yuppie.
Nick is a wealthy Republican lawyer, desperate to make partner at his firm. It's very Wall Street.
Can these two opposites attract? Yawn.
What was interesting about this story is that at the beginning of the book, Tess and Nick had already dated and broken up, because they were two different. Second chances can be an interesting concept, but I prefer getting to experience the couple first meeting.
