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.

Started out a little slow BUT...

I have to say that at first I wasn't that thrilled with this book, it started a bit slow for me. I have to agree with someone else that at first the narrator's voices for the men got on my nerves but then the story really started to take shape and I have to say I couldn't put it down! It was more than just a romance novel, it was about great friendships, family, life, love, etc. I will continue to read more books from this author. Trust me give this book a chance and you will fall in love with it!

narration spoiled a medium-level story anyway

I love Jennifer Crusie's "Bet Me" and I thought "Welcome to Temptation" was not bad - but I had a really hard time getting through this one. I hated the way the narrator over-did the male voices (and they all sounded the same) and over-softened the female voices (so they sounded really docile sometimes). I didn't think the story was great, either, to be honest. I am surprised so many other people liked it

Bored!

When I read Bet Me I loved it so much I could not wait to read something else by Jennifer Crusie. I could not even finish this book. I don't know if I should try any more books by her.

Not so much

I usually love Jennifer Crusie but I was bored senseless. The main character really annoyed me. Not sure why but I found I couldn't even finish it.

Could Have Been Hotter

I did enjoy this story, it was light and fun with a some mystery mixed in. The sex scenes laked at bit of detail which I guess some people like. But for me the book would have 5 stars if there had been more detail. Overall the book was good and I enjoyed the listen. I will try another of Jennifer Crusie's books.

Love fast women!

Smart, funny characters getting into improbable situations that somehow work out in the end. Most of Ms. Crusie's characters have the same vocabulary as well as the same outlook on life.

A romance that has it all

A well written story with wonderful true to life characters.
This is the third time I have read this story, and first time I listened to it. It only gets better.

The narrator did an amazing job, I just wanted to keep hearing her voice. Her way of distinguishing the different characters was perfect in my opinion. One of the best narrators I have listened to.

Jennifer Crusie books are always fun to listen to.

The characters are easy to love or hate and a good plot twist at the end.

Crazy Connections

Love Jennifer Crusie books and Sandra Burr did an excellent job with narration.So many dips,turns,spins and blips could make anyone go a little crazy and need some Amaretto with her milk.What a crazy,fun story,murder,mystery and tons of flirting.A cute dog,some fries with vinegar and plenty of chinaware.You've got a total nuthouse full of characters.I highly recommend this book.Can't describe how good it was to listen to,you have to experience it for your self.
