Coming right at you- Davy Dempsey's Story. And of course, Davy's story couldn't be very straight forward, could it. Thats what makes him the most cunning of the Dempsey's. So when you throw: Betty, Veronica, Scarlet and ....wait... yes Matilda, or shall we call her Tilda... you get one hell of mix- plus alot of names to keep track of. And she's not the only one wandering around with multiple "identities". Hello Louise. Plus add Pops into the story mix and its just one big 'ole Dempsey party with a Clea on top. literally. Has plenty of humor to keep the story moving (plus the narrator doesn't pause of a breath - which definitely keeps the pace going). Although it could have more in the romance department, its enough to be satisfying. All in all a great story. I will probably wait awhile to re-read, but if you know me- even CONSIDERING re-reading is a compliment (blame it on a short attention span). While the beginning of the book was a bit of a snooze, wait until half way and just hold on for the ride in the closet of your life!
Absolutely love almost all of Jennifer Crusie's books and loved that this was a follow up to Temptation. I wish more of her books had a sequel, her character development always makes me want to know what happened to them after!
The narrator was fun to listen to as well and that always helps a great book be even better.
Better things to do but this is more fun.
Good, fun listen - I enjoyed both the reader (Aasne Vigesaa) and the story. It had fun, snappy dialogue, lots of overlapping subplots and a yummy (if not alpha male) hero. Davie Dempsey and Tilda Goodnight are a good combination. I'm not sure I would have stuck with it if this were on my Kindle but Ms Vigesaa's narration is what made it sing.
Civil War Nut LH
I've listened to this book so many times, I've lost count! The performance is excellent and the story line keeps you engrossed.
I loved all the characters, but Nadine was great and perky. Actually, maybe precocious is a better word.
I'm torn. For a quick, lighthearted scene, I like the scene between Nadine and Davy. Nadine is explaining the difference between muffins and donuts. When Nadine says Simon is a donut with sprinkles, Davy says she's too young to know about sprinkles!
For a longer, more intense scene, of course I pick the scene where Davy and Tilda are finally coming clean about their criminal pasts and it's getting them hot!
It made me laugh and got me a little revved up!
My favorite line from the book is: "When Eve ate the apple, her knowledge increased. But God liked dumb women, so paradise ceased."
I highly recommend this book!
Too much cheap impersonal sex
pleasing, mellow, unobtrusive
I was drawn in by so many rave reviews. So many said laugh out loud funny. I sure missed that part.
Say something about yourself!
Loved them all, but all in all, Davey was my favorite
Laughed so hard over the Clea's closet.
Welcome to Temptation was also AWESOME. Crusie is great
Tell us about yourself!
Everything- this was a very well written book. I couldn't stop listening.
It was light, funny, and a cute story. Gotta love those Dempsey's :)
Welcome To Temptation (first book in series)
I enjoyed listening to this book, I thought the casual sex was a little much but it seemed to work in this story. I was completely surprised by the ending. Fun to listen to and I would recommend it.
This was a totaly frivious book. Good summer reading. I loved it!
It was a cute story that made me laugh.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
A nice tale of some really quirky characters. Jennifer tells a good tale and keeps the story going throughout. The little twist at the end was nice.
