Cassie is a magician’s assistant secretly in love with her boss. He comes to her with an interesting idea for a new show, which would bring them recognition. To his visible shock, she says yes.
Harold is a magician secretly in love with his assistant. He is positive Cassie will turn down a lucrative opportunity but he is wrong.
Harold and Cassie embark on a mission to prepare for and practice their new act which calls for them to be naked. The dilemma for the magician and his assistant is to learn the trick of not revealing their feelings for one another when they are left with nothing to hide behind.
Anne Sorgeson takes romance and puts a big spin on it. I could imagine, as well as see in my mind, the couple on stage naked struggling to hide their feelings. I laughed out loud when the author described the required preparations for the props in their act. Cassie and Harold are a true replication of two people who are too shy to reveal how they feel. Independent of each other, they both decide to become their most vulnerable, hoping it will force the other to see them for who they really are. The story is a funny story touching for the depiction of what happens when people let it all hang out.
