I wasn't a Jennifer Crusie fan, but then I read this book and I've sort of changed my mind. If I can find more of her books written like this one, I'd be happy! This was cute and short, I like them that way:)

Ok, so this wasn't my favorite Crusie by a long shot. But, a bad Crusie is better than most chick lit any day. This one seems fluffier and more mindless than the rest I've read, but still written with style and wit.

Sassy romance with an underlying (and largely superfluous) mystery. Typical Crusie -- which means it's better than 90% of the other chicklit books out there!

Crusie's books are good for a light read. Bring one to the beach or on a plane. Predictable and sappy...but fun!

Jennifer Cruise writes some really funny outrageous laugh your butt off books. This one tends to be more romantic, but still funny. I like that she always has some stray love starved dog in each of her books. If you find you didnt like this one try another of her books.

This book was very fun and funny. I had many moments that I actually laughed out loud. Not as much of a Chick Lit book because there aren't really "problems" the main female role has to overcome. You get perspectives from both Allie and Charlie. It was a quick, enjoyable read, the characters were likable but human. Highly recommended.

As usual Jennifer Crusie cracks me up. This was a very funny story set at a radio station. My favorite character was Allie's roommate Joe, he had all the best lines :)

Jennifer Cruisie is known mostly for writing light comedic romances. This is one of her earlier novels, and it sure fit that description! It's not a laugh out loud humor, more like a romantic comedy movie - or a romantic sit-com (with some steamy scenes that would never make it past the censors of any network except HBO or Showtime.). It wasn't all light though. Towards the end they managed to touch on some faily serious issues. And I totally loved all the scenes with the puppy. Even though I'm a cat person, that puppy melted my heart.

Plot Synopsis: Dumped by her boyfriend and dropped from WBBB's prime time, radio producer Allie McGuffey had nowhere to go but up. She planned to make temporary DJ Charlie Tenniel a household name -- despite his objections. Footloose Charlie shunned fame. He wanted to kick back, play good tunes, and make love to Allie -- despite her objections.
Throw in a little mystery, a lot of meddling townspeople, a little work sabotage ... and Allie and Charlie are hooked.

When you read older works by many authors, you can clearly see their development as authors -- their early works pale in comparison to their newer stuff. Crusie is an exception. Her older titles are delightful, full of sparkling wit and wonderful characters.

"Charlie All Night" contains all the great Crusie elements -- two sensational characters drawn together despite themselves, great witty banter, and marvelous and -original- sensual writing. Throw in some meddling secondary characters and a cute puppy who only drinks his milk to Billy Joel, and you have a hoot of a story.

~ MY OPINION ~
CHARLIE ALL NIGHT is not my favorite Jennifer Crusie book and like a few of her other earlier ones feels more like a novella than a full-length novel. Regardless, it is an enjoyable read and very entertaining. The chemistry between Allie and Charlie is great and they have some fantastic dialogue, there are several humorous scenes, and the secondary characters are wonderful - especially Joe, Allie's gay roommate. All in all, the book is definitely worth checking out from the library (which is what I did).

In Charlie All Night, like in ANYONE BUT YOU, Crusie features a heroine who is both older than usually found in the genre (Allie is 36) and than the hero (though only by two years here - not the ten that separates the hero and heroine of Anyone But You).

My favorite Crusie books so far are: BET ME (5 stars - amazing!!), MANHUNTING (4 stars), and GETTING RID OF BRADLEY (4 stars). They are all both read- and buy-worthy!

The radio station is playing musical chairs with the drive time producer. When she is reassigned to the late nite slot and a new DJ, she is determined to make him the new star of the radio company. But, Charlie has another agenda, and doesn't want to be a star. Charlie All Night is a cute story.

This book is v e r y "light" reading. Indeed, I am willing to bet that "My Pet Goat" has a more arresting plotline and more interesting characters. Still, if you want to do some truly undemanding reading, this is about on a par with a really predictable sitcom. Now, I realize this is no way to sell a book, but I thought it only fair to warn you. My conscience is clear... :)
