Publisher's Summary

Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "she said - he said - she said"

    I actually had to stop listening to this book because the author seems to think the listener is not smart enough to figure out who is speaking, even if there are only 2 people in the room. Following nearly every statement is "he said" or "she said", I found myself saying this along with the reader and it started to drive me nuts! I finally had to move on to another book and just figured this credit was wasted.

    "So much better than I expected!"

    I purchased this book during one of the $4.95 sales, and to be honest, I didn't have really high expectations. Well, was I ever surprised. I ended up loving this book; it was great. I mean, lets be honest, the formula is not unique but the characters are rich and full and you really start caring about them. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys chick lit. It won't disappoint.

    "Super entertaining and fun!"

    This was the first Jennifer Crusie book I had listened to, although I have since listened to others. This is my favorite so far. The story is so clever in its theories of romance that many of the characters have and swear that their theory explains all. The characters are unique and fun. The narrator does a great job. I was laughing out loud in some parts and yet the story can be very sweet at other times. A word of warning . . . you may feel the need to go get donuts during or after reading.

    "good story poor language"

    This was a fun story with good characters. Unfortunately the author had a poor use of the English language and resorted to curse words repeatedly.

    "Cute, fun, lighthearted"

    This is a fun, mind-candy type of book. If you are looking for something "deep" this is not it, but boy is it fun.

    "This kind of story makes commuting fun"

    I've loved Jennifer Crusie's work since I read "Anyone But You" (love ya, Fred!), but this one has made me laugh and cheer out loud during my long commutes. The characters are so easy to like, the story engaging, and the funny moments are truly laugh-out-loud inspiring. Great job, Jenny!

    "Pretty Good!"

    This is a pretty good book! I liked the characters, they were very relatable. The second half dragged a little, but the characters more than made up for it. Over all it was funny and cute! It was my first of her books, and I am looking forward to the next! I can't wait!

    "Brilliant book, very good narration"

    This is by far my favorite Jennifer Crusie book and is really truly excellent. You cannot go wrong with this title. Romance, humor, friendship -- it has it all.

    I felt as though the narration was very good -- an especially well-matched voice for Min, Bonnie, Liza and Tony. My only very small complaint is that the narrator does not change her voice much for other characters -- sometimes it ends up being a tad monotone. Still, for the excellent job done with Min (one of the main characters) and a pretty good job for Cal (the other main character), you just can't go wrong.
