Beth Samuels has a big job ahead of her -- having taken over as sex columnist at her paper, she fully intends to do the best she can. So what if she doesn't have a lot of experience in that department. There are lots of other ways to dig up good research -- like picking the brain of her best friend. But when Sara tells Beth that she can't use any of her own experiences because her new boyfriend thinks it's 'too personal', Beth knows she's in trouble. Trust Sara to supply the right answer though -- she suggests it's time that Beth 'go pick up a guy. Fresh is better than canned in more than spinach'.

Beth takes her best friend's words to heart. Despite misgivings about not 'being the kind of woman men pick up' but rather one 'they ask for advice about their girlfriends', she approaches her research with renewed self confidence. She thinks her first attempt at picking up a man is a bust, not realizing she's caught the eye of a sexy stranger named AJ, who just happens to be in town to re-organize Beth's magazine. Their sizzling night together leads to great sex and a great column. But there are lingering after effects that neither Beth or AJ want to admit since they both know a long distance relationship would never work. Especially once Beth finds out who AJ really is.

Dawn Atkins writes a fun and hip story in Very Truly Sexy, with a pair of likeable leads in Beth and AJ. His reluctance to tell Beth who he really is becomes a bit drawn out, a bit too implausible, but everything works out just fine in the end.
