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)

    "Great Story"

    I love Min the female lead. She's very real and has a passion for good food. Cal, the male lead is a terrific character as well. I wish they would make a movie out of this. It would be a fun romantic comedy. I hope Crusie figures out how to cut back on the he said she said though. It's a bit of a distraction. Regardless, this book was such a pleasure to listen to. I also wish they would use this narrator more. I love Deanna's voice!

    "It gets better"

    SLow very slow start almost said that's enough, but it really turned around. I really enjoyed this listen. The story line had it's funny really could happen to you moments then it's its a novel momens. You know you wish you could do that in real life moments. Love Elvis. This was worth the beginning. The listen is worth it.

    "Story is cute, but author overuses the word "said""

    I thought the story was cute, however the author way overuses the word said. It was constantly "he said, she said". It isn't necessary to use the word that much if the voicing is done properly. In fact, most of the time I knew who was speaking without hearing "he said" or "she said" in this book. It got to the point that I was anticipating the name of whoever spoke, then heard the narrator say the name, and would start cracking up. It was distracting.

    "Good book"

    I enjoyed this book very much. It made me laugh out loud. It was witty and heart-warming. The narrator didn't change her voice much for the characters...but, it's not hard to follow at all.

    "Hm"

    Not a bad book but the author needs a thesaurus. He said, she said, he said, she said..,., too many 'saids'. Annoying

    "Too Many Annoying Quirks"

    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.

    Story
    "Boy meets girl but author ruined it"

    This author just can’t write. Characters banter back and forth and you know which character is which based on the conversation BUT the author has to use "Min said", "Calvin said", "David said"...ad nauseam...after each statement. In a 20 minute dialog there must have been 40-60 "insert character name, Said"...just have the conversation already! Two people are talking and I can figure out who is saying what!

    There is also a character that just was stupid and could have been written out of the story without any damage done. “Cynth” (every character’s name is shortened into a nick name…geez) is the main character’s ex-girlfriend. She is a psychologist who is writing a book on Love and spends too much time explaining the 4 stages of love and what stage Cal and Min are in. She even shows up in scenes that she shouldn’t be in. What woman shows up at the same event and talks to the new girlfriend's friends about the four stages of love. Unnecessary intruder. It’s like she is placed in a scene just to explain to the reader what stage of love we are witnessing. As if I am too stupid to know this is infatuation, or lust, or courting. She is like a sportscaster whispering during a golf game…annoying!

    Don’t waste your credit. If I could get my credit back I would.

    "Couldn't finish it - poor writing"

    All the "he said" & "she said"s are very annoying. Poor writing, lame plot, & boring.
