Review: Bet Me to Jennifer Crusie (Audiobook) (Rating 5 Wine Glasses)

Posted February 6, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 2 Comments


From Goodreads: 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 keep 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.

Bought on Audible

What I Loved: Minerva Dobbs is a fantastic lead character.  She is funny, snippy, real, and just downright screwed up as the rest of us. I laughed a lot reading this book and I even cried at some points.  I probably would have done exactly what she did if I was in the same predicament. At 33, perpetually single, she is a good reputation of most single women in her 30s. Calvin was a fantastic leading man.  He was stubborn, charming, screwed up, and gets into plenty of situations that put him into hard situations.  Those two together are the most fantastic couple I have read in a long time.  I love Liza, Tony, Bonnie,Emilio, and Roger they were fantastic friends to Cal/Min.  David/Cynthi were great “villains” and perfect thwarts along the way. The parents will just crack you up and the siblings are a big part of their life too.  Everything meshes together really well.

What I Liked: Everything!  This truly was a great book:)

Complaints: None πŸ™‚

Audiobook specific review: The narrator Deanna Hunt did a fantastic job. She did a great job with the book πŸ™‚

Why I gave it a 5: I liked everything about this book. It was such a fantastic read from beginning to end.  You would not go wrong reading this book if you like romance, fun, and great couples!

Who I would recommend this too: Contemporary, Chick-lit, and Romance readers would all love this!

    I adored this book. It's as close to perfection as contemporary romance gets as far as I'm concerned. It's also the only Crusie I've read and since it's supposed to be her best, I'm afraid that her others won't measure up.
