Is there some unwritten rule than when romance novelists start getting hardback book contracts they must then include psycho stalking nutcase characters in those books? Nora Roberts makes the switch from romance to romantic suspense with ease, but in Jennifer Crusie's case the transition from her humor-filled romance novels would be better served without the psycho stalking nutcase type character. The story of Quinn and the domino effect her desire for change triggers would have worked fine without Bill, the dumped boyfriend who cannot take no for answer. Bill is not a funny character. The escalation of his stalking behavior is not funny. As a result, CRAZY FOR YOU is neither a completely funny romance nor does it qualify as romantic suspense since there are many humorous elements. CRAZY FOR YOU is entertaining, but suffers a bit of an identity crisis.

Most townsfolk believe that Quinn is a fortunate individual since she is dating the local hero, gorgeous high school coach Bill Holland, who seemingly will do anything for his beloved. In spite of her relationship, Quinn feels bored and adopts a stray dog she found. However, to her shock, Bill commands her to give the fleabag to the pound.

Quinn rejects Bill's demands for her to give away Katie, so he intercedes by taking the canine to the pound without her permission. Quinn goes ballistic, feeling her boyfriend betrayed her. She dumps Bill and retrieves Katie. She also buys herself a house and begins to see Nick Zeigler. However, Bill obsessively wants her back even if he must employ violence to succeed in his quest.

Readers will be crazy for Jennifer Crusie's latest story CRAZY FOR YOU. The story line brilliantly blends wit with suspense, turning the novel into a winner. The audience will adore the intrepid Quinn even as they will despise and defile Bill. Even with a fatal attraction undertone, the ingenious Ms. Crusie leaves her fans feeling quite contented with life.

Jennifer Crusie hits a home run with this one! I lost an entire day's work because I couldn't put it down. It's funny,fresh, and completely satisfying! This is one book you won't feel as if you've read a hundred times before. I loved the characters, the humor, and the surprises. The best book I've read in months!

I've read all of Jennifer Crusie's books, and this one is her best yet. Quinn McKenzie, bored with her safe, predictable life, decides to keep the stray dog she's rescued from the parking lot. From that one tiny decision, her life dominoes out of control in mostly hilarious ways only Crusie could dream up. Safety alert: set down your mug of hot chocolate before reading the scene out behind the dog pound. Once again the heroine's relationship with her best friend is central to the story -- every woman needs a best friend like the ones Crusie creates for her heroines. This book is all about getting what you need, and it works on every level.

Just browsing I spotted the book and enjoyed it. Multiple developed characters, not just the main two. Everyone seemed real in this book; no bodies to die for, and Miss America looks. I'm checking other books by this author after I post this.

bit slow to start and found it hard to keep all the secondary character straight. set in the usual small town america where everybody knows everybodies business and high school sports are the religion so when quinn leaves her boyf the high school coach things are shaken up. high school coach doesnt really accept she has left him which just bugged me the whole way through the book and i got tired of him as a character. great male interest in the form of nick (hot hot hot) and things get down and dirty.

great funny moments and some great character, slow start but in the end the passion is explosive

Crazy For You -by Jennifer Crusie
Although you rather assume that this book by this particular author is going to be a light and fluffy romance, this book is anything but. Although it Isa romance and does have its amusing and some out right hilarious moments, it also deals with the very dangerous and frightening issue of stalking.

Ms. Crusie does the reader a big favor by doing this - this blending pure entertainment with an issue that is so very scary and dangerous to so many of today's women. A she does it so well as only few other romance writers can do.

Quinn is dating (living with) someone everyone thinks of as the `worlds nicest guy' and he is. Right up until the day Quinn has had enough of nice guy and now wants something for herself. This revelation starts with a lost and homely little mutt that Bill does not want but Quinn does and soon ends up with it being Nick, her sister's ex-husband, that Quinn wants most. Well, that and some hot sex! And of course, with this being Ms Crusie we are guaranteed some of that...although it does take quite a while to get there.

This is an amusing read filled with craziness, both from Bill, the dog Katie, her best friend and even her parents. This book has several other story lines going. These stories explore the inner workings of long-term relationships and how these relationships can sometimes become stale. It explores what can happen when one of the couple finally notices the staleness. And you may find yourself laughing out loud at some of the antics of these couple, as well as asking yourself how can men be so clueless.
However, I have to say, the men are not all at fault even if the author didn't want to explore that side of things.

This was a good fairly fast read and may even become a re-read for you.
