Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Even if he is gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey. Cal knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. Even if she does wear great shoes and keeps him on his toes. 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 meet again. Soon, they're dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme donuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of. Including the biggest gamble of all—true love.
Oh, If I only knew how funny and amazing this book was, I would have read it sooner.
I really liked it because Minnie is really funny and smart and Cal should be really as delicious as a doughnut.
I laughed out loud, I felt all sorts of emotions building up inside me and it made me crave for food like no other book until now. 🙂
Also, it’s always nice to have a fairy tale to believe in (or to keep you company).
I appreciate the fact that this book isn’t a big fat cliche.
Oh, and to avoid any SPOILER ALERT, I’ll just say that Jennifer Crusie has given me in the end that thing I always think about and always wonder about. Thanks, Jennifer. I love you for that! 🙂
