Loved the characters, SO funny and excellent narration!
The characters are so real and flawed and lovable and hilarious. Nothing like Crusie's one liners...
Her intonations and superb narration skills made me feel as if I was listening to a play rather than to a book,
Enjoyable, doesn't make you work too hard. Sometimes you just need something light to distract from everyday life and this works well.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
I've liked other books by Jennifer Crusie. I don't know if I would try another one because I really did not like this one. When it becomes a chore listen instead of a pleasure. Too many names too much too much confusion it wasn't fun.
The lack of a storyline.
The narrator did fine but they can't read a storyline into a book if it isn't there
Sure of,course the dog.I was glad that she rescued him that was a good beginning to the story. So yes Spot a.k.a. Steve was a bright spot.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I usually love Jennifer Cruise's work. However, this was just bad. Not only was it boring with a terribly repetitive storyline but the narrator killed what chance it may have had. I was so bored that I couldn't even finish listening to it. Instead I found one of my old favorites by Molly Harper. I know that Jennifer Cruise has lots of potential her story "Bet Me" was one of my favorites. Better luck next time Jennifer.

Very good dramatisation
Scarlet - she was misterious, honest, funny and woman..
I always liked Jennifer Cruise's stories but listening to this one narrated by Aasne Vegesaa was exceptionally funny. I laughed out loud so often. Even the sex scenes were hysterical. It was such lighthearted fun!
Her delivery was so perfect
I could barely put this down. I loved it.
It was well written. The plot was clever. It was not silly like some books of this genre. It is not a heavy literary experience, but that is not what I wanted. It lightened my mood. Good escapist listening.
She adds an additional dimension to the reading experience. I appreciate her talent.

I enjoyed Faking It although it was not my favorite Crusie book. The narration did not take away from the story. The characters are definitely different. If you are looking for a light, easy summer listen this will foot the bill.
