When Kas meets William on a South African game preserve, he is the perfect catch--this safari ranger is gorgeous, brave (he saved the tour from sure death by wild rhino) and kind. Both her handsome gay best friend Max and her beautiful straight best friend Libby are desperate to kiss the man, as is anyone who casts eyes on this stunning creature...but he seems to have eyes only for Kas. The fling is fun, but Kas must return to NY and her job as a lowly assistant to a literary agent. She leaves with the idle offer that William should come visit. But when he loses his job for fraternizing with a guest, the idle offer becomes terrible reality, because William is on his way, and only now does it become apparent how incredibly limited his intellectual capacities are. An aspiring writer who can't actually write, William makes Kevin Federline look like Einstein. His email missives might be mistaken for hieroglyphics--not that he'd know how to pronounce that word, let alone spell it--but they seem to express devotion for Kas, and a hope that she'll help him publish his treatise on the dire political situation in Monaco. Not the book that is destined to set the literary world afire... Once he moves in, it is clear that he has no money and no prospects--all he seems good for is staring intently at a blank computer screen, running up crazy bills on the psychic friends network in the mistaken belief that they really ARE his friends, and generally taking what remaining shreds of sanity Kas has left. In short, Kas is held captive by her dumb new boyfriend, and readers are along for the hilarious ride.
