On the whole, I really enjoy Jennifer Crusie, however, I found this book disturbing. I find the subject of being stalked by an ex-lover incompatible with what is otherwise a light romantic romp.

Your mileage may vary. It's competently written.

This is not a cozy mystery and it is not a conventional romance, so I guess I would call it chick-lit...the sex didn't make me uncomfortable but there are a couple of creepy characters who do. This was okay for a lazy Saturday read, but definitely not a keeper. If I read anything else by this author, I will pick it up from the library.

Jennifer Cruisie always makes me smile. She has mastered her craft and truns out a tight, fast paced story. Her characters are full of life and energy, if somewhat goofy in a dull way at first. Until I fall in love with them,that is.

A fun read.

Quinn McKenzie breaks up with her long time boyfriend, Coach Bill Hilliard -- the town of Tibbett's championship coach, because she wants to keep the stray dog she has found and she wants something different and more exciting in her life.

Then things do get exciting -- she explores a new old love, buys a house and her ex turns into a stalker determined to win her back. And she's not the ony one in town causing excitement.

Fun, quick read - a dash of romance, a dash of comedy, and a bit of a dark twisty side...

A very good book about the lives of friends that are tired of living a dull life and decide they need to spice it up some and make some changes. Some characters are very funny, some are psychotic.

High school art teacher Quinn McKenzie is bored with her life. She realizes she needs to change when she adopts a stray dog and her boyfriend objects. Instead of getting rid of the dog, she breaks up with her dull boyfriend, buys her own place, and decides initiate a romance with her best friend, Nick, who also happens to be her former brother-in-law. Suddenly Quinn's boring life is out of control. Her dog is kidnapped, her former boyfriend refuses to believe their relationship is over, her mother comes out of the closet and kicks her father out of the house, someone is breaking into Quinn's house to sabotage it, and Nick refuses to sleep with her.

This is another funny romance from Jennifer Crusie. Not only do we get Quinn & Nick's romance, but there is a secondary story about Nick's brother, Max, and his wife Darla. And Quinn's ex-boyfriend, Bill, goes from boring to strange to scary in the course of the story. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

A crazy mixed up Romance story to make you laugh, an ex-boyfriend to build the tension, and a cute little dog, named Katie, for the dog lover's. Unfortunately, Katie is almost forgotten in the 2nd half of the book, but she does re-enter the story for the grand finale.

I can't recommend any Crusie book enough. She's just too funny, offbeat, and not the same tired chick lit.

This was a fast listen - very good - about a 35-year old teacher who feels her life is in a rut. She leaves her boyfriend (high school football coach who is a "God" in the small town they live in) and moves into her own place for the first time in her life. The book has some genuinely funny moments and also some really creepy ones when life doesn't go exactly as she had planned.

Highly recommended but don't listen with children in the car because there are 2 very graphic sex scenes that are narrated.

After reading two of her books, I've decided that I like this author. Her books (based on the 2 I've read) have a simple formula: 2 people meant to be together either resist and/or are kept from being together, add sexual tension, add a few other interesting characters and move the plot from two people alone to two people in bed:-) I enjoyed this book, but as with the other one that I read, thought it was about 2 chapters too long. That said...here I am on vacation, and wishing I had another book by this author with me. Her writing did make me smile and I loved the easy, fun read.

Sometimes a girl's gotta do what she's gotta do, even if it's not the most popular thing. Crazy for you started slow, I wassn't swept into the story like some of Crusie's others. But as the story progressed it became more interesting. Light, funny, with a hint of suspense, overall it was a quick and fun read.

As usual, Jennifer Cruise wrote a great book. This book had a psychotic ex-boyfriend who was a surprise. At the beginning he just seemd like a dud. But, the more I read, the crazier I realized he was. The rest of the characters had their own quirks, which enhances the story. I started this one about 9:00 am and was done by 5:30 PM, and that included many breaks in my reading. I just couldn't put it down.

"A delightful romantic romp, filled with character who are just plain hoots."--Los Angeles Times

"The story comes together with just the right touches of humor and some pretty sexy dialogue. Cruise hasn't yet achieved the name recognition of Sandra Brown or Nor Roberts, but this effort proves she is every bit as good." -- Library Journal

This is one of my favorite books ever. There's just something about the characters that pull you in. It goes to show that just because something looks perfect from the outside doesn't mean it's not rotten in the middle. Love the sexual tension between the main characters and their best friend relationship. It's a good book and definitely worth the credit.

I've loved every Jennifer Crusie book I've read. As I read this one, I kept picturing Clancy Brown as Bill.

From Kirkus Reviews
Romance has a new star in Jennifer Crusie (Tell Me Lies, 1998): if Crusie had written Our Town, Emily Gibbs would have lived a longer life and died a happier woman. Quinn McKenzie is in a rut. Her little-town life in Tibbett, Ohio, is boring, dull, even "beige.'' Though she lives with Bill, Tibbett's most winning coach, she doesn't precisely love him, but went along with the idea of cohabitation simply to avoid an argument. Quinn's mother is also in a rut: she goes to garage sales with her friend Edie and waits on her husband Joe, who watches ESPN day and night. And Quinn's best friend Darla is in a rut; she thinks her husband is interested in Barbara the bank officer, who changes her hairstyle each time she sets her cap for a different married man. But Quinn's existence goes through a tectonic change when she adopts a small neurotic dog named Katie. Bill, who doesn't want a dog, takes Katie to the pound, causing a furious Quinn to leave and move into her own house, where she begins to reexamine her life. She sets her cap for Nick Ziegler, the bad-boy mechanic who was once married to her more exotic sister Zoe. Nick doesn't like to make commitments, and he fights his feelings for Quinn until the day he decides they should have sex once, to get it out of their system. But as romance fans know, one time seals his doom. By the end, Quinn discovers that her mother and Edie have been doing more than cruising garage sales together; Darla finally gets her husband's attention; and Kate has an empowering (for her) confrontation with Bill. The only jarring note in this sexy, lighthearted confection is Bill, who turns into a pretty serious nutcase. Crusie should stay with her strengths, which mark her as one of the few in the genre who can make you laugh out loud.
