Review: Anyone But You

Book Details:
Anyone But You

Author: Jennifer Cruise
Publisher: Harlequin

Book Description: 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!

My Review:
Well, its a Harlequin romance... by definition they are sweet, breezy and light. This book lived up to its expectation and was a quick read. I wanted to read something sweet after reading Steve Berry's Carlemagne Pursuit and before starting with In Spite of the Gods (that's the next one!). So, I decided to read Jenny Cruise's first novel. Alex was really sweet, but kinda dense for a doc and Nina was a 40 year old with a huge age complex! but in the end.. its happily ever after with lots of sizzle.

I would recommend this for a Sunday afternoon when you just want to read something nice.

If any of you have read this book, let me know your thoughts.

Rating 3/5
