Publisher's Summary

Lucy Savage is not having a good week. Her cheating husband, Bradley, lobbed the final insult when he stood her up in divorce court. A dye job gone wrong has left her hair green. And someone is trying to kill her. To top it off, sexy cop Zack Warren is certain that the very same man Lucy is trying to wash right out of her hair is the same Bradley he wants to arrest for embezzlement. When someone shoots at her and then her car blows up, Zack decides she needs 24-hour police protection.

Next thing Lucy knows, Zack has moved in to her big Victorian house, making them both sleepless...and not just from things that go bump in the night.

    "Other stories by this author are better"

    This book is fine, but when I was taking walks and listening on my phone I could get distracted by something I saw and my attention would wander. Not typical for me to have to back up so often because a book isn't keeping my attention focused... It's a cute enough story, but isn't quite as good as most by Jennifer Crusie. If you purchase this book, and it's your first Jennifer Crusie, please give her another chance.

    Story
    "Fun, witty, light listen"

    Both author and narrator combine to make an entertaining listen. Ms. Cruise does a great job with her characters and making them enjoyable to get to know. Her characters always have an affinity for animals, what's not to love?

    Story
    "Save your money, pass on this one."
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really like Jennifer Crusie (as does my husband). The reader completely ruined any possible story there was. She was definitely not the right reader for this book, or even this category. She would do fine with children's books. She sounded like a 12 year old. It was too awful to listen to the story with the voice of a child. My husband could only listen to about 5 minutes, then had to call it quits.<br/><br/>Save yourself the expense.


    What could Jennifer Crusie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Different reader.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elenna Stauffer?

    Anna Field, Sandra Burr, anyone with an adult voice.<br/>

    "Great story, loved the characters"

    I had read the printed version, and loved it. It's a great story, funny, sexy (explicit), exciting, a "who-dunnit." Unfortunately the audio version has the wrong narrator. She is too young, for ALL the characters. There were bad choices on accent, character, voice timbre. Why does the sister with money sound like she's from The Mob, why does one villain squeak? The story is good enough that I still listen to it in spite of the narrator being annoying.

    "enjoyable, not Jennifer Cruise's best`"

    Enjoyable but doesn't reach Jennifer Cruise's usually more provocative level of topics and writing. I listened to this book as I was doing my Christmas shopping and don't think I missed much.
    Still, a good chick romantic novel.

    "Narration almost intolerable"

    I loved the story but the candy-coated, little-girl voice of the narrator really ruined this audiobook for me. She should not be attempting ANY make characters in any way, shape or form. From now on, I'll be certain to do a listening previe before purchasing and make a note to avoid Ellen's Stauffer!

    "Male voices aside..."

    I'll agree with previous reviewers that the male voices are off and not on-character. Clearly the narrator can do better voices (several of the secondary male characters are fine), but the main male voices are pip-squeaky and pubescent when they shouldn't be.

    If you can get beyond that, this is a VERY light-hearted, laugh-out-loud romance. And it is a romance. Classic Crusie snark, a very little bit of mystery and a good dose of comedy make it a fun listen anyway in my opinion.

    "Lite story line"

    This would be a lite READ (3 starts as a read), as an audio book it is a PASS (1 star as audio). The narrator has such a whiney voice that she made the lead character come off as a junior high cheerleader wanna be. This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator and yep, same whiney voice comes across in both. To me an audio book should be a movie with words, not a constant ‘he said’ and ‘she said.’ Surely a narrator worth his/her salt could and should be able to make the characters different enough that the ‘he said/she said’ wouldn’t be necessary.

    "Which Bradley"

    I really like it. Started slow, so much I almost turned it off and stopped. But, I'm so oc I couldn't. It picked up then I really liked it. Had alot of Jennifers normal humor, with the ok ok I cant wait moments. Ready for the next listen.

    "Started out good"

    The book held my interest for the first few chapters and then became really corny and lame.
