For Nina Askew, turning forty means freedom -- from the ex-husband whose career always came first, and from a stuffy suburban home. Freedom to have her own apartment in the city, and focus on what she wants for a change. And what she wants is a bouncy puppy to cheer her up -- but instead she gets Fred.

Overweight, smelly and obviously suffering from some kind of doggy depression, Fred is light-years from perky. But for all his faults, he manages to put Nina face-to-face with Alex Moore, her gorgeous downstairs neighbor. Alex is an E. R. doctor who is sexy, seemingly sane. But Nina couldn't possibly fall for a man who's ten years younger -- or could she?

Aka Fred's book because the cover dog is a scene stealer & makes you chuckle a lot. I liked the unconventional older woman/younger man romance by the author or the wink wink nudge nudge in-jokes on the book industry where protagonist worked.

Jennifer Crusie started me on my road to romance -- I devoured most of her books almost immediately and then, looking for someone once I'd almost fully exhausted her book list, I found my way to Nora Roberts, and then to Jill Shalvis, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and so on. I'm not sure why I didn't jump at this one the first time I saw it, but it might have been because of the dog. Although I know that's a huge appeal to some readers, I am not typically one of them.

But when I saw this a few weeks ago at the library and realized I hadn't read it, I picked it up and figured it wouldn't hurt. Knowing that I had a rough day ahead of me today, I picked this book out of the library pile knowing that, dogs aside, Jennifer Crusie is always someone I can count on for some mindless escape. And this book delivered.

It wasn't quite as layered as some of her other books, but it was exactly what I needed this morning -- I read the entire thing before noon, unable to put it down. Great characters (as always), some laugh out loud moments, and, of course, the perfect amount of heat. An excellent and quick fluffy read.

You can't go wrong reading anything Jennifer writes. This is a great book for a single woman with a dog.
