Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Crusie returns with her most hilarious, sizzling novel yet.

Nell Dysart's in trouble. Her divorce is 18 months old, she's been sleepwalking through life, and the best job she can get is with a detective agency that specializes in relationship work. Determined to turn her life around, Nell flings herself into making McKenna Investigations a better place.

On day one, she uncovers an embezzler. On day two, she turns up bribery. On day three, she has sex with the wrong man. On day four, she steals a dog. On day five, her boss tries to fire her... And fails miserably. Because even Gabe McKenna has to admit that no matter how much he hates the confusion she's brought into his life, Nell shares his passion for making things right.

It's not long before they share another passion, one they can't ignore - even in the face of distractions like adultery, blackmail, arson, murder, and really bad business cards.

    "Good story, bad narrator"

    I loved the story, but they made a poor choice in a narrator for a romance novel. All the women sound like they're all out of a 1950's sitcom and all the men sound like women on steroids. It took a lot out of the story. I've always been a big fan of Jennifer Crusie. 'Bet Me' was, by far, my favorite audiobook. I think Deanna Hurst would have done a much better job with the voices. Overall though,I would recommend this book.

    Welcome to Temptation because of the facets of the women and the love stories evolving.

    This is great typical Sandra Burr performances. I always love her narrations.

    yes.

    I want to continue to listen to Jennifer Cruise. This is my fifth book in two weeks.

    "awful"

    A truly dissapointing read. It is difficult to understand why this was prioritised to be an audiobook when there are so may great romance novels out there. The characters just seemed shallow and uninteresting to me.

    Story
    "One of my favorites"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. In the simplest of terms, it's a story about normal women feeling empowered and at peace after terrible break-ups. Throw in some conspiracy, murder and cover-ups, great dialogue and punchlines, and you have this fabulous book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fast Women?

    The china. lol If you haven't ready the book you may not get that answer, though there is a huge coffee cup on the cover. But the china in the book was everything. I've never been into china...ever..but the china and the way they felt about there china was so interesting that I find myself wanting some egg cups :/


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Nell went apesh*t on her ex-husband in his office after finding out that he'd lied to her...classic. I can't help but grin every time I listen to it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No tears, but there was lots of laughs.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't mentioned this yet but I LOVE Sandra Burr. She is so fantastic at what she does. Her timing and delivery was perfect and I loved listening to her read.

    "Cute but predictable"

    Fast Women is a funny book. If you like Jennifer Cruise's writing, you'll appreciate this book. The narrator does a lovely job.

    "Not the Best"

    This is my sixth Jennifer Crusie books ??? I can say it was the best one of hers I have read. I loved the characters in the book but felt it took too long to get to the meat of the story. The ending is predicable and several twist and turns in the book ??? nothing you can???t see coming. In general it was a fairly fun book to listen too. Like the previous books of hers she has her reoccurring themes ??? it dishware.

    "Loved the Book but....."

    I think I'm also discovering that so much of liking an audio book has to do with the narrator as well. I knew I heard this voice before and I did - w/Nora Roberts Three Sisters Trilogy. She just has this voice that puts you right into the story (wonderful). I just think that anything Sandra Burr narrates is bound to be a good listen. Obviously the book needs to be good but I'm thinking Sandra probably only does "keepers".

    "Annoying!!!"

    Cute, easy listening but the main characters are very annoying. Good listen for a mindless summer day.

    "Too fast for me"

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did some of her other books...this one had too many fast women! Just too much "bed jumping" for my taste. Sex partners seem to be incidental to these characters.
