At the University of Connecticut Business School in Maplewood, Kimmy Nailer, a student from Arizona, has sex with Jamie who is in one of her classes. Kimmy concludes that twenty-five minutes of boredom is not worth a semester of his sniffing around especially once the beer loosens the fog of her mind and she realizes this is not Cary Grant.
She decides pothead Russ might be a better choice for her. Jamie keeps sniffing at her skirts until he notices Manhattan’s Layla Roth. However, Layla has chosen some stud whose application makes him worthy of her attention at least in her mind after she sneakily read his personal papers.
This look at MONKEY BUSINESS on the college campus is an amusing chick lit tale that would turn the University of Connecticut into the number one party school instead of the number one basketball school. The story line rotates perspective, but though often humorous with their antics, none of the key foursome has any ethics as they allow their runaway libidos to rule. Readers who have children away at college and a short memory will probably want to pass, but other sub-genre fans might enjoy the hi-jinks (make that low-jinks) of the college crowd.
