Logic is telling entertainment magazine reporter Cal Chapman to turn down this assignment. However Cal’s heart is telling him to give his former lover, and movie star, Robin Fletcher another chance.  

Simply Irresistible is the second book in the London Calling series. The romantic plot has a hint of mystery, as well as corruption. The characters are creditable. Cal enjoys being a reporter; it allows him to interview interesting people in addition to occasionally writing their bios. Being a sensible man, Cal has moved on as best he could from the rollercoaster relationship he shared with Rob but Cal has never been able to extinguish the love he feels for Rob. Cal accepts the assignment to interview Rob in the hopes of learning why Rob vanished for years. Rob is not a bad person, he simply lacks good judgment. Hollywood had suddenly become detrimental to Rob’s health. This was just one of the demons plaguing Rob at the time he returned to his home in England without informing anyone. Even so, Rob still hungered for the feel of affection only Cal could offer him. 

Christiane France has created an emotionally impressive short story that I enjoyed immensely.
