Contemporary Romance

Levisa Harris had found her man. Not a man for her, per se, but the perfect subject for her Master's research project. It didn't matter how smart he was, she knew that he would have difficulties going far in the business world when people couldn't understand what he said.

Sam Parker was proud of how far he had come, but he also had come to the realization that in order to succeed, he would need to overcome his accent. He was a wiz at numbers, and determined to improve his speech.

Levisa had no doubt that Sam was destined to succeed, but as the weeks passed, she realized that the two of them were growing close. She began to worry that the success of Sam's speech lessons meant the end of a relationship with him.

Pigmalion was a unique contemporary twist to the Pygmalion play. I adored Sam. He was understandably offended by Levisa's overly enthusiastic comments about his speech and having him participate in her study. He didn't want to be viewed as a guinea pig, yet he also eventually came to the realization that, although she could have been a bit more tactful, Levisa was correct. He did need help. Watching these two come together was entertaining, and I look forward to seeing what Ms. Buchbinder has in store for us next.
