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.

give me a different voice!

I loved the paper book, have lost count of the number of times I've read it and it still makes me laugh, but this narrator drove me nuts. She was not a good match for Lucy. If this book could be re-recorded by someone else, (and I have a list I'd prefer) I'd buy it again and give it another try, but I can't even finish this version.

Disappointing

I am a huge Crusie fan, and loved "Anyone but you," but this one was so bad! It was dull, boring, the narrator's voice was annoying, and I absolutely despise heroines who are clueless about what's going on around them.
Frankly, It made me so frustrated, I never even finished it. Another waste of money.

A Fun Read, Great Banter

This book is one of my favorite Jennifer Crusie's and while the narrator wouldn't have been my choice, she does a good job with the snarky banter-style dialogue Crusie's books are famed for. Lots of humor and well-paced, this is a fun addition for anyone who enjoys romantic comedy.

Idiot Plot

I read and loved "Anyone But You" and decided I'd try another Crusie book. What a disappointment! The characters were pretty much cookie-cutter and the plot farfetched, full of absurd coincidences. What bothered me most was the heavy reliance on the "idiot plot", where the heroine blithely refuses to believe she's in danger despite massive evidence to the contrary, and the hero cop fails to spot a clue towards the end that absolutely hit me in the face. I found myself mentally shouting at the characters for being so obtuse.

The narrator was a problem for me, too. She has a hard time doing believable men's voices; I couldn't picture the burly, beard-shadowed Zach while listening to her rendition of his voice. And why does Lucy's sister Tina have a heavy Brooklyn accent when Lucy herself has no trace of one?

The dogs were cute, though.

I am glad I finally listened

This is one time I finally didn't go with the reviews and finally listened to the book. I had this book for a couple of months before listening to it. I agree the narrator was not good, she didn't have a "Man's character" voice at all, but to me the story was so cute and entertaining it out shined that problem. I love the banter. I did feel Lucy was a little "too much" but hey...it was part of the story.

In my opinion (whatever that is worth) it is worth the credit.

Wilted

I'm a Crusie fan and find her clever dialogue, intricate plots and quirky characters very appealing. Maybe I've read too many (5) of her other novels but I found this text a warmed up rehash of previous (better) works. If this is your first Crusie romance you'll likely enjoy it but if you're familiar with her earlier work you'll likely find it weakly reminiscent of better novels past.

Gettintg Rid Of Bradley

Jennifer Crusie always writes a light hearted story. Her stories will give you a great laugh and put a smile on your face. I have enjoyed many of her books and so will you.

Great fun!

humor, romance, suspense, mystery, relationships, dogs, law-enforcement

Another Crusie book guaranteed to have you snorting your caffeine! It's got a vintage house full of dogs named after physicists, more situational humor than a Mel Brooks movie, an embezzler,the bomb squad, and more. I first read it years ago and several times since, it never seems to lose its appeal!
This time I got the audio, and the narrator has the desired level of enthusiasm but the most annoying voice I've come across in a long time. I honestly would have preferred an AI.

disappointing

I was looking for a light read and thought I would take a chance on this book. A previous reviewer noted that if this were your first 'Crusie romance' you would likely like it. Well it was my first but I didn't enjoy it. It was two-dimensional, predictable and dull. I sped up the 'reader' just to make it to the end.
