©2000 Jennifer Crusie; (P)2006 Brilliance Audio, Inc.
"The story comes together with just the right touches of humor and some pretty sexy dialogue. Crusie hasn't yet achieved the name recognition of Sandra Brown or Nora Roberts, but this effort proves she is every bit as good." (Library Journal)
I gave this book 3 stars because it is abridged. The narrator is great and I love Jennifer Crusie novels, but a lot of good stuff was left out. Notably, the subplot of Darla and Max trying to rekindle their relationship. Also the transitions between scenes felt awkward and unnatural. I would give 5 stars to an unabridged recording of the book with the same narrator. Next time I buy an audiobook, I will be checking carefully to make sure it is not an abridged version
I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't the typical Jennifer Crusie book to me. I didn't see much depth in the romantic part of the story. I wasn't really fond of the "hero." He was kind of a jerk, in my eyes-- and didn't really redeem himself and I didn't get why she liked him so much. The other characters were pretty fun, and some of the situations made me smile (which is why I gave the book a relatively high rating). Some situations were kind of intense, which makes for a fun book. Don't want to spoil anything, but I think it was a relatively fun read.
Narrator was great to my ears!
I love jennifers books a few of them have been middle of the road but his one was fast funny loving. I had to stay in the car a few times to find a stopping point so I could get out. Was a really good listen glad I got it.
This is one of my favorite books by this author, but I realized about halfway through that there were major gaps in the story. They took out not only the supporting characters and their conversations, but also major scenes that were important to the plot.
