She finds herself undeniably attracted to the suave hip-hop instructor, Jo.Zee, who recruits her into a dance fitness DVD he is producing. When Suzie sees (or thinks she sees) the real Jo.Zee, she has to decide if she will trust him…or her instincts.

Score: 4.50 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick @ Night Owl Reviews

REVIEW #1: "The Intern is a consistent and well-crafted story of first love and new experiences, and Suzie is a believable protagonist who is swept up by infatuation for a very handsome young man, who also reveals the dance world that she longs to enter."
— Review @ Night Owl Reviews, December 2011

REVIEW #2: "What I liked best about the book was the description of the dancing. I love how Jess describes dance moves. They have been so vividly described that it was as good as watching a movie."
— Review @ My Love Affair With Books, August 2010

REVIEW #3: "Hi, my name is kimberly and i’m from a small country called St. Vincent it’s in the caribbean. I just want to tell you that even though i purchased your book by accident it turned out to be one of the best books i’ve ever read {i read about 3 book a day}. The intern gets 2 thumbs up from me. and thank you very much for writing it."
— Kimberly / email from a reader/customer, September 2010

"Hey—check out the first song on the list."

I glance at the catalog Chester Taylor Adamski, my internship partner, is showing me. The page lists the radio channels provided by the airline. There’s the Top 40s channel, Adult Rock, Blues/Swing channel, and so on. The one he's pointing at is Classic Rock, and "Suzy Q" is the first song.

"Your all-time favorite?" I wink.

"Right on," Chester says with a mighty grin.

His chin rests on his hand that's propped up on the armrest between our seats. A couple of fingerprint marks smear the lenses of his black, plastic-framed glasses. His dusty blond hair is neat as usual, and pretty much unstyled.

I smile. I’ve gone with "Suzie Q" after Chester introduced me to that rock song. It has more flavor than "Suzie Quinn" anyhow. Chester told me about the song when we were thirteen or fourteen. I was surprised he listened to hard rock. I thought he’d be more into something like classical music.

Once in a while, in moments like this, I almost think Chester might be the one.

But then I get real. Not Chester. He's more like a brother to me.
