It all starts with a dog. Quinn McKenzie rescues a small dog and falls in love with her. She decided to keep her in spite of her boyfriend's objections. Then her "beige" life (where she's dating the nicest guy, has a good job, surrounded by friends and family ~~ only to realize that she was bored to tears) suddenly changed into a life of color (there's even a huge red couch in her new life). Between dog-nappings, breaking and entering, seduction, sabotage, stalking, secrets and suddenly two men who were crazy for her ~~ it's enough to keep you interested in the book.
It is a quick read and funny as heck. There are some scenes in there that reminded me too much of my experiences with a stalker ~~ Cruise writes that vividly! I would wait till the last minute to go to work because I was so caught up in the book. Then the first chance I would take, I would grab it and start reading it again!
Even if you don't need a reason to buy this book, I recommend it anyways. It's fun, sexy, terrifying all rolled into one ball. Since I have read two of Cruise's books, I will be keeping an eye out for the rest of her collection. Once you start reading this one, you're hooked. And it's a ride that you won't easily forget.
There are all manners of plot devices represented here; the notable theme being long-term relationships and can two people ever stay together for a long time without growing in different directions. Great insight into the teaching profession and "office politics" in public school academia, as well!
Crusie is lighthearted and unafraid to have her books fall into the "beach trash" category, and, in the manner of Evanovich, (without the mystery) goes way over the top with some of the plot twists. This book, like her others, just cannot be put down!
One caution for new readers - Crusie makes the sex scenes in her books hot enough to need a small firefighting device close to the place you choose to read. She has an incredible touch in describing how both men and women feel in their most passionate moments.
Look for Crusie to score big with her big with her next new novel...she has really developed a following!
The supporting charaters and storylines entertain (and that's a rarity in this genre) while taking away nothing from the central love story. All the characters, in fact, are appealing and believeable, with only one exception: Bill, the heroine's ex-boyfriend. We know he's doomed to be dumped from the start, but his increasingly erratic behavior doesn't fit with what we know of him early in the book (he's sensible, dependable, and deadly dull) and his downward spiral into scary stalker territory didn't ring true to me.
But that's only a very minor criticism of a book that is a joy to read. Jennifer Cruise is a talented writer who knows how to create engaging love stories and this is the book that made me want to read everything she has written. I recommend _Crazy For You_ to anyone who enjoys love stories but may sometimes turn their noses up at romance novels. It's perfect for beach reading or as something to relax with in the tub.
