Meg Ellen Jones, age fifty-three, sits anxiously awaiting word on her mammogram results and wondering what her future holds. As she waits, she reflects back on the numerous men she dated in her quest to find "Joe Right," a term established with her best friend, Suze. Flashing back to her college days, law school days, and early days as a young associate lawyer, Meg recalls the intimate details of each relationship and her quest with her best friend, Suze, to find the perfect man. Through the 1980s and ’90s, Meg Ellen's career booms in an era where successful young women were trailblazing. During this time, she continues to woo men with her charm, but manages to find something that disqualifies each one as "Joe Right." Meg comes to learn a great deal about herself, her morals and integrity by observing what doesn't work with her relationships. Meg Ellen becomes more discerning and true to her own beliefs and ethics with each relationship. In Kate Rogers' Joe Right, the reader is kept in suspense until the final chapter as to which suitor finally married Meg Ellen, who now awaits her test results and can't wait to get home to her adoring husband.

Kate Rogers' novel Joe Right is an easy, fast-paced read that's great for beach or poolside. With two likeable career-oriented young women, the reader can easily relate to Meg Ellen and Suze's enduring friendship. The book is divided into chapters that, for the most part, each contain one love affair, allowing the reader break points between each one. The male characters are well developed and diverse enough to keep the pace and intrigue of the story. All the men are attractive in their own way; some are foreign, others are incredibly wealthy, providing the reader with a classic romantic escape while still maintaining a story line of friendship, career aspirations and personal growth. Each love affair has a good dose of romance and a little bit of tastefully written sizzle. A great novel to pick up for an afternoon escape.
