But Fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal are dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kremes, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a mutant cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of, including the biggest gamble of all: real love.

"Hurst's voice contains an energy and exuberance that leaves little doubt that she's the perfect narrator for Crusie's heartfelt comedy of errors....[A] zesty, vibrantly told tale." (Publishers Weekly)
This is a warm fuzzy story. I enjoyed the story, the narrator, and the ending. I recommend this to anyone who like a light, happy story. It has fun voice, funny scenes, and very fun characters. If you're a fan of romance, I think you just might like this story.
I love this book. loveable characters with realistic quirks. Strong women and guys you'd like to know personally. A wonderful, atypical romance with laugh out loud dialogue.
I love this book so much that I've reread it almost every time I'd had to replace it. It seemed to leap off my bookshelves into the purses of friends. So this time I got it in audio, and found it to be even better!
The six friends and their exes are all single thirty somethings, there are also a couple of siblings, some parents, and a nephew. There is drama with lots more situational and verbal humor. I'll leave the summarizing to the publisher's blurb and skip the spoilers. Just know that this is a really fun pick me up book!
Deanna Hurst gives an excellent audio performance on this one.
I enjoyed listening to the book very much. The narrator did an awesome job! It had a great storyline. I'm a Jennifer Crusie virgin and have never read any of her books before. Jennifer is a very talented author, except the usage of the word "said". It was just too much, Min said, Calvin said, Min said, Calvin said, etc. Other than that, I really did enjoy the book as a whole.
This is the first Jennifer Crusie book I have listened to and I really enjoyed it. I found the characters to be fun and witty, the storyline engaging and the ending wrapt it up well. It is a light read, lots of romance and some sexy parts too, especially near the end. I particularly liked the underlying theme of self acceptance, as the main character Min moves towards embracing her curvaceous body, with the help and encouragement of Cal and her friends. Good narration also made it an enjoyable listen.
Hard to listen to this one. The jokes were very corny and it seemed like a shallow plot line. Much prefer the humor of Madeline Wickham, Sophie Kinsella or Liane Moriarty. I was looking for something witty and light. This book was a big disappointment.
