Publisher Comments:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Crusie's delivers a novel about long shots, risk management, true love, and great shoes...

Minerva Dobbs knows how to work the odds.

Calvin Morrisey always plays to win.

But when they face off, neither one is prepared

Because when real life meets true love, all bets are off...

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.

"Bet you can't stop reading it. Absolutely, irresistibly hilarious."

-Kirkus Reviews

"Crusie maintains her winning streak...wickedly witty, deliciously sexy."

I loved this book. I enjoyed the fact that this was not about another barbie girl getting the "perfect" guy. I love how Minerva says one thing and seems to do another, telling herself that she won't persue anything with this man and then even if she doesn't mean for it to they end up spending time together, getting closer. I loved this book because her character just seems so real. She seems to have her mind made up but she doesn't. She tries to live life on the safe side so she doesn't get hurt and then realizes that sometimes it is worth it to get hurt!
