Cate Madigan isn't asking for trouble. Her wacky Irish family is constantly playing matchmaker for her with men who leave much to be desired. All she wants is peace and quiet and a nice place to live while she saves her money from tending bar in a lively Boston pub. Okay, so what if her roommate is a cross-dressing lounge singer named Marty Longfellow? In exchange for cheap rent, all she has to do is take care of his plants and collect his mail when he's out of town. And then...Marty disappears.
At the same time, a bullmastiff named Beast shows up with instructions from Marty to take care of him. Can Cate handle this 120-pound bundle of joy who wants to devour everything in sight?
Ex-cop Kellen McBride has decided to make Cate's bar his nightly hang-out. But is he just there for the beer? Or does he have an ulterior motive for getting close to Cate? When Cate comes home to a ransacked apartment, she realizes Kellen knows more than he's saying. Problem is, he's turning up the heat in her life - in more ways than one.
Soon Cate finds herself in deep trouble with mysterious stalkers, a lovesick would-be boyfriend named Patrick Pugg, two friends who are looking for love, and the very sexy, possibly dangerous Kellen McBride. The south side of Boston has never been wilder.

"Like other Evanovich novels, there's a madcap race to the finish while mysteries are solved and hearts are stolen; also like other Evanovich novels, it makes a highly satisfying read." (Publishers Weekly)
"King pushes the fast action with impeccable professionalism, making each member of a large cast of characters distinctive, colorful, often hilarious, sexy, and romantic." (AudioFile)
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
Classic Chick-Lit, Had me rolling my eyes the whole time. But it truly was a fun beach read, or even better, pick it up after a tough day at work. Sexy, sweet, FUN!!
I have never written a review before but had to on this one. I am a true Evanovich fan however this book was so poorly written I can't believe her name was on it. The characters were pitiful and unreal, and the main character Kate was absolutely anooying. I have read better written stories on fan fic sites. Don't waists yoyu money on this. I just can't believe she actually wrote this one. WOW!
Although I enjoy the fun nature of Evanovich's stories, this is exactly the same as the Stephanie Plum series. With the same reader, Lorelie King, it was impossible to remember I was listening to a different story. Wish I hadn't spent the money to purchase this book - it would have been better spent on another Plum story.
I liked the story line and the characters. Funny, serious, hysterical, moving and again funny story.
When the dog ate the underwear.
I keep saying the same thing when asked this question. Lorelei is a very good reader. She makes you believe the characters. Only in two other series books did I not care for the way a character was portrayed, and that too was eventually changed and the new version is great. She's good at what she does.
Time well spent yes! Its like a mini-book!
Its classic Evanovich, similar to her other reads. The characters and story line seemed a bit watered down though.
Absolutely nothing jumps to mind. Good, fast read but nothing that will make me remember it and laugh later.
Listening time was very short, so sure.
Love Evanovich, but she is pricey. Watch for her books on sell, they tend to be relatively short books with a full book price.
The characters were okay but the story was predictable.
I'm a fan of Evanovich but not so much of Banks, sorry.
I finished it.
