The "him" in Make Him Look Good is Ricky Biscayne, the sexy Latin singing sensation who has taken the pop world by storm. Among the women who orbit him is Milan, Ricky's new publicist, smart as a whip and chubby as only a girl who still lives at home with her parents can be; Geneva, Milan's sister and as lean and chic as Milan is not—her Club G promises to be Miami's hottest opening ever; Jasminka, Ricky's gorgeous Serbian model wife, who finally might eat a little something now that she's pregnant; Irene, a firefighter whose high school romance with Ricky was the last love in her life, eking out an existence for herself and her daughter; Sophia, who is beginning to suspect that she and Ricky Biscayne look a little too much alike; and Jill Sanchez, an omniverous media-manic Latina star who has crossed over from CDs to perfume, clothes and movies. In  Make Him Look Good, Ricky and his entourage mingle and romance within Miami's vibrant music, club and modeling scenes.
