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.

    I really enjoyed this book, the he said she said is tedious but otherwise not bad. Some narrators change voices & a few even have male & female take turns reading, not this book. Despite that I enjoyed Min & Cal I liked the realism of having to spend more time together to really get to know someone who isn't your immediate type. It's just a plain fun book.

    i reallly love the story! a little too much "cal said" "min said" "cal said". anoccasional change between he asked, he said, he jelled, he whispered.....would have been nice. but i just love the story!!! would have liked a little more character in the voice of each charakter. there are scenes with conversations on the phone, where you can tell by one voice sounding like it is coming from the off, but then you cannot differentiate between men and women.

    I don't give 5 star reviews but this book was great! I loved it! The narrator made it even better. I loved the ending and I loved all the characters... I'm getting more books from the same author.

    I was a bit concerned in the beginning...all the "he said", "she said"...but once you get use to it and just listen to the story it is delightful. I loved the characters and the story line. As a "large girl" myself...it gave me hope :)

    Average story. I could predict the ending. It was okay, but nothing special.

    I thought this was a delightful story. Big boned women do have a chance. Just reserved other books by Crusie. In the process of book two. She has a wonderful, natural and honest way of portraying her characters. They are real, everyday people.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent. If you're tired of the usual fare of light, romance-type novels, you need to read Jennifer Crusie. It's witty, intelligent, with great dialog. You never once want to stick your finger down your throat.

    I am embarrassed to admit -- but I loved this book. Yes, I agree that all of the "Min saids" and "Cal saids" were annoying, distracting and noticeable – and yes, the Cals of the world don't usually fall for the Mins, but that is why books like this exist so we can fantasize about the happily ever after even if you are not a twig.
