Anyone But You | [Jennifer Crusie]

Anyone But You

Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous dog Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - 40-year-old Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

Publisher's Summary

For Nina Askew, turning 40 means freedom - from the ex-husband whose career always came first, from their stuffy suburban home. Freedom to have her own apartment in the city, freedom to focus on what she wants for a change.... And what she wants is something her ex always vetoed: a puppy. A bouncy puppy to cheer her up. Instead she gets...Fred.

Overweight, smelly, and obviously suffering from some kind of doggy depression, Fred is light-years from perky. But for all his faults, he does manage to put Nina face-to-face with Alex Moore, her gorgeous, younger downstairs neighbor.

Alex looks great on paper - a sexy, seemingly sane, surprisingly single E.R. doctor who shares Fred's abiding love for Oreos - but a 10-year difference in age, despite his devastating smile, is too wide a gap for Nina to handle.

Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

What the Critics Say

"Considered by many to be a romantic comedy classic....the novel is given a note-perfect reading by Susan Ericksen....Also worthy of note: the upbeat, jazzy score." (AudioFile)

    "Fred seals the deal"

    This was really cute. I agree with another review regarding some of this author's narrators but I think this one was well read. I loved Fred and thought he stole the book. The main character did get a bit whiney about her age, but other than that this is a really fun read!

    "Another Favorite, Must Read!!"

    Nina and Fred are a cute pair, but when you add Alex to the mix, it is sexy! Fred knows exactly how to help Nina get her man, and keep him, and Charity is great with giving her hints on how to reel him in.
    The narration is nicely executed, and I would listen to more books read by her. Honestly, if you don't like the narrators people, read the book. But I like Susan, I think she did a great job of not trying to make herself seem like a guy, but she played the characters well. She really did justice to Norma and the other book club readers characters. I think that the way Crusie chooses to use he said she said a lot of the time can be covered up well with her wonderful stories!

    "Love ya Fred!"

    Humor, a great looking sexy doctor, and a basset hound. What more could you ask for? :)

    "Cute but a little disappointing"

    This is one of my favorite Jennifer Crusie books but I was disappointed with the narrator. I still enjoyed it but found her treatment of Nina to be a bit on the whiney side. Loved Fred..:)

    "A Cute Read"

    This was a cute - if predictable - and entertaining little read. It is much shorter than I usually like, but it fit the bill for my drives to and from work for a few days. It was pretty predictable and might have been better with more character development.

    "Silly and Fun Read"

    Jennifer Crusie has the quirkiest way of writing that is hard to draw a bead on but always likable. This was sweet, cute, silly and a lot of fun. My favorite book of hers thus far is Welcome to Temptation and where I like some of her stories more than others you can't go wrong with a Crusie book. If you just want some lovely entertainment this is the one for you!

    "Unbelieveably funny"

    I don't normally read this genre, however, Ms. Crusie has made me want to purchase another one of her books. Romance books sure have changed since the 1970s and I am glad I picked this up. The narrator was wonderful, The characters believable and most of all Fred is the great glue that brought them together. Thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable, laugh out loud reading.

    "Old Fashioned"

    This is an old fashioned romance, reflective likely of the time it was written but disappointing after reading her more current stories.
