Book Review | Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie

Date Published | October 15, 2012

Date Read | Aug 2021

Goodreads Rating | 5

Overall | This was such a cute romance – I loved it even though it was written a gazillion years ago

Pros | Thank you for not making her some pathetically helpless victim of a cheating spouse – the main character is fed up with her boring, privileged suburban life and divorces her husband in search of adventure and solitude – I loved it right away. Her reasons for adopting the old, ugle dog instead of a cute, psritely puppy were super adorable – it was because he reminded her of herself since she’s a middle-aged divorcee.

Cons | None

Warnings | None

POV | Third Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | Yes

Description | Part basset, part beagle, all Cupid…

For Nina Askew, turning forty means freedom—from the ex-husband, freedom from their stuffy suburban home, freedom to focus on what she wants for a change. And what she wants is something her ex always vetoed—a puppy. A bouncy, adorable puppy.

Instead she gets…Fred.

Overweight, middle-aged, a bit smelly and obviously depressed, Fred is light-years from perky. But he does manage to put Nina in the path of Alex Moore, her gorgeous, younger-by-a-decade neighbor.

Alex seems perfect—he’s a sexy, seemingly sane, surprisingly single E.R. doctor—but the age gap convinces Nina that anyone but Alex would be better relationship material. But with every silver-haired stiff she dates, the more she suspects it’s the young, dog-loving doc she wants to sit and stay!
