    After reading this, I don t think I ll eat Chicken Marsala ever again The heroine of this book ate Chicken Marsala in two different restaurants, twice for takeout, at a wedding, at a dinner with her friends and cooked it 4 times with different levels of success I don t know if there s anything boring than a person who never tries anything new if I d been the hero, I d have stopped dating her just because of this I enjoyed the first part of the book the humor was not over the top and the plot was wacky but not creepy Then as the book progressed, I found two of my big pet peeves adults that don t confront their parents when they re out of line and the demonizing of men You see, I had a mother like Min s so I totally understand what it is to live with constant criticism regarding my figure But when I was in my 20s, I had a very firm chat with my Mom about it and told her I wouldn t tolerate that behavior Did my Mother stop completely Of course not, but at least now it s manageable and not humiliating like it used to be And that s why I cannot respect Min who at 33 years old, should not let her mother choose her hairdo, her clothes or the food she eats I HATED how Cal was demonized because he dated a lot He was so nice and thoughtful that women fell in love with him in droves and when he realized they were serious than him, he would break up with them The bastard Doesn t he...

    Cute story, but I m still not sold on Jennifer Cruise.I ve read this one and Welcome to Temptation, which are supposed to be her top two books and my feelings for both are overwhelmingly ok I know she s supposed to be one of the queens of Chick lit, so this leads me to believe that Chick lit will never be my jam.Which is fine.Ok.Min is chubby And Min is always gonna be chubby She doesn t magically lose the weight then find her prince charming And prince charming Cal isn t one of those guys who already knows he likes the curvy ladies It isn t until he talks to her that he realizes he finds her interesting and sexy.The problem is, he s taking a break from women because they are nothing but grief But Min is different And she s worked her way under his skinThe back and forth between these two was really cute and sweet And I enjoyed the fact that she wasn t thin One thing I thought was maybe a little odd ...

    5 DONUT STARS.A fabulously written book with plenty of heart and soul, low on the drama and high on the humour, Bet me is a book that all romance lovers should have on their I need to read shelves My book heart was crying out for a chic lit fix, so with a few recommendations for this book under my belt I decided to forge ahead and reconnect with my first love of reading style This author did not disappoint Bet me was a gorgeously funny and romantic escape and i m left with a huge smile on my face.What s it all about Minerva Min Dobbs is a slightly cynical, witty and suspicious thirty something who has found herself dumped by a man who she barely liked let alone loved Trouble is Min has an impending wedding to attend as her sisters bridesmaid, throw in the need for a date, two hilariously entertaining best friends, an overbearing mother and a dress that doesn t fit and Min finds herself looking for a replacement man to fill the dateless gap Min is well aware that there is no such thing as a prince charming to del...

    5 Beautifully Insane StarsThis book wasbizarre but so damn charming It was full of light humour and absolutely free of drama It is a book you read when you need something to pick you up I m so glad I read it The main characters were mostly insanereally We have Min who after being dumbed by the world s biggest idiot goes into her all men are pigs phase, and we have Calvin , the comitment phobe, who gets entangled in a stupid bet against his will They are our main couple She is a little chubby and never takes risks, he is a gambler They decide they have nothing in common and won t be seeing each other again But fate has other ideas What i m trying to tell you, Min said, is that im going to grow up to be one of those chubby old ladies It s in my genes Like self raising flour i m going to pouf That s going to work out well for me, Cal said Because i m going to grow up to be one of those horny old men who chases chubby old ladies around the couch The mean characters were completely insane David the douche makes the bet with Calvin that he can t get Min in bed in a month, just after he breaks up with her, despite the fact that he wants her back Cynthie , Cal ...

    4.5 Fairy Tales Do Come True Stars It s been a long time since I ve read a JC book I remember her always putting a smile on my face and once again JC had me smiling and laughing many times I loved Mim and Cal Hell I loved everybody in this book I might have liked it so much because Mim and Cal acted like enemies instead of lovers lol All because of a bet made between Mim s ex David and Cal which Mim over hears So Mim starts off hating Cal right away and is quick to shoot down his charming ways They butt heads every time they are around each other They never want to see each other again but fate has different plans for them And when it came to the important stuff they were both there for each other I loved how Cal made Mim feel sexy about not being a size two He loved to watch her eat He made her eat He also was quick to put Mims mom in her place when it came to her harping all the time to Mim about not eating carbs and dieting I loved how Mim stood up to Cals family and never made him feel stupid because he was dyslexic Elvis her cat was awesome I loved how every time Cal or Mim voiced out loud to themselves that they were never going to see each other again something weird would happen Cal burned his finger or bumped his head Mim stabbed her self with a loose staple Haha These two...

    4.5 STARS Sometimes I find myself discovering a new to me author, and thinkingWHERE THE HELL HAVE I BEEN Why haven t I heard of Jennifer Crusie before now Despicable.And because I m late into the game, I won t bother explaining what this book is all about I loved it I loved Cal Truly loved that dream of a book boyfriend He was honest, sweet, considerate, giving, loving and an an all around true gentleman The scene where they re eating chicken Marsala ummYUM and he describes how he sees her bodysigh Seriously, I was this close to tearing up With Min s mom dishing out endless weight loss advice, and her ex being a douche, Min deserved someone who could see her for herself and love her deeply, want her desperately and keep her forever Min was funny I always felt she put up a shield against people that would judge her, or assume things This was of course a defense mechanism, and it was hilarious in the beginning when she used it like crazy against Cal There were tons of laugh out loud moments, a fantastic secondary cast loved her bff s Bonnie and Liza touching scenes, swoony scenes and a romance that gave me the warm f...
