Professor at Federal University of Uberlândia (Brazil). I love romances and thrillers. Feel free to send me e-books suggestions!
Very light. A good book to listen to when you have finished a more intense book. I kept listening waiting for the reveal that was obvious very early in the story.
I have read other books by this author which were much better. This book while somewhat entertaining was on a scale of 1-10 a 5 for me. Some of the characters were incredibly annoying and not well developed. Even the main characters name was annoying.

Jennifer Crusie almost always makes me giggle. That makes the 2-hour commute go just that much faster.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
You can’t help but immediately like the heroine in this story. This story is all about a bet. In most of the plots using this device, the bet is not exposed until the end and then there is the predictable blow-up. Not here, Min knows about the bet up front, well most of it anyway. Deanna Hurst does a good job narrating the story. One thing that I like about this novel is you connect with the characters pretty quickly and there are six different points of view – good job. This is a pleasant read and worth the time.
A story where the guys make bets on women. Grown adults! How juvenile! I expected to not like it because I had a stereotypical scenario in my mind about how it would play out. As it turned out, I did like how the relationship developed. It wasn't what I had envisioned at all.
There were some very annoying details about the story. The word "said", the doughnuts, and how many times did they eat Emilio's cooking during the course of this one month period? For crying out loud, I don't know anybody who eats out this much, let alone the SAME restaurant over and over again. Despite these annoyances, the story moves along at a comfortable pace, and I enjoyed it more than I expected to.
You bet! I've already listened to it several times. I just love the characters and the story.
The banter between Min and Cal.
I don't know.
I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!
I really tried to listen to this 4 or 5 times but I kept falling asleep. Just could not get into the story at all. I had a hard time keeping track of who was trying to hook up with who and who was fooling who?
Yes, I love many of her books! This just wasn't one of them. The characters were just not interesting and had little personality.
Did not distinguish between characters well at all...I think that was part of not being able to get into the story.
Wish I hadn't wasted a credit...
Fun, Sexy, and Yummy. The characters bring in all the fun from the sexy vixen Liza's purse slapping humor to Elvis the music loving cat. Then you have the sexy ways in which the moments of intimacy are described and it all rounds off to one yummy chocolate Krispy Kreme doughnut.
It is a feel good story which drags you in and makes you want more. The characters are so likeable even the mean ones that create the drama in Min & Cal's life.
Cal. I know it's Deanna reading his character, but he sounded very sexy at times. Hands down the best male narration from a female I have heard thus far.
It made me hungry for some Chicken Marsala and doughnuts.
I rarely read/listen to fiction books. But once in a while I will find a gem like this and can't put it down. I literally had it playing on my Android in the car, PC at work, and laptop at home because it was like a bag of chips that you cannot put down. Loved it and I am looking forward to more indulgent moments enjoying Jennifer Crusie writing.
I loved this story - it spoke to those of us who aren't blonde, gorgeous, thin and all that. It was carefree and entertaining - the gorgeous didn't get the guy for a change. The narration was excellent and easy to listen to. Well worth my credit!
