The Company You Keep

Tracy Kelleher

Harlequin SuperRomance, Jul 3 2012, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373717927


A dozen years ago at Grantham University in New Jersey, Mimi Lodge was the star of the women’s water polo team while Vic Golinski was the football hero.  They got into an argument over Title IX support to women sports that he called minor and unnecessary, and she claimed important and needed; which led to both of them wet and ready for a tryst at the fountain when the cops arrived.


In the present TV reporter Mimi psychologically deals with PTSD two months after her release from her abductees in Chechnya.  Her dad asks her to be part of the Reunions debate on Title IX using the fact she has not seen her family in Grantham since she returned to Manhattan after her ordeal; she agrees if Vic is on the panel.  Vic is the CEO of GSI, his family’s natural stone supplier business.  He reluctantly agrees if Mimi is on the panel.  At the reunion, just like she told her father, fire ignites when Mimi and Vic meet.  Each wants the other, but her time in captivity leaves her traumatized.


This is an entertaining second chance at love starring an eccentric cast, a heroine whose sense of humor enables her to somewhat cope with what happened to her, and the former football captain who enjoys agitating his Mimi as much as she does him.  Fast-paced, Mimi’s PTSD adds pathos to an amusing madcap romance.
