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)

    Story
    "Minerva is my hero"

    I never write reviews. I just don't see the point most of the time. I love this book though. I love Minerva's character and I understand her fears. I have listened to this book several times over the last few years and I think I will listen to it several more. It makes me laugh out loud and it makes me angry and it makes me hope.

    "Cute, fun, lighthearted"

    This is a fun, mind-candy type of book. If you are looking for something "deep" this is not it, but boy is it fun.

    "so much fun"

    This is a warm fuzzy story. I enjoyed the story, the narrator, and the ending. I recommend this to anyone who like a light, happy story. It has fun voice, funny scenes, and very fun characters. If you're a fan of romance, I think you just might like this story.

    "Too much repetive writing."

    The writer uses the prases, "Said Min." and "Said Cal" so often during long conversations that it became an annoying reptitive sound and I couldn't finish the book.

    Story
    "Elvis Costello vs Elvis Presley?"


    I love this book so much that I've reread it almost every time I'd had to replace it. It seemed to leap off my bookshelves into the purses of friends. So this time I got it in audio, and found it to be even better!
    The six friends and their exes are all single thirty somethings, there are also a couple of siblings, some parents, and a nephew. There is drama with lots more situational and verbal humor. I'll leave the summarizing to the publisher's blurb and skip the spoilers. Just know that this is a really fun pick me up book!
    Deanna Hurst gives an excellent audio performance on this one.

    "Said"

    I enjoyed listening to the book very much. The narrator did an awesome job! It had a great storyline. I'm a Jennifer Crusie virgin and have never read any of her books before. Jennifer is a very talented author, except the usage of the word "said". It was just too much, Min said, Calvin said, Min said, Calvin said, etc. Other than that, I really did enjoy the book as a whole.
