Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie

Anyone But You First Published: 1999
Pages: 288

This was my first Jennifer Crusie novel and it was a fun easy read. It is easy to get into and Nina is a character who is easy to love. I think the thing I liked most about this novel was the realness of Nina, she is like your average woman with all the same insecurities about herself and her body.

Alex is an interesting character and doesn't seem to be your typical 30 year old hero. They are a perfect couple it just takes them a while to figure it out. Fred, of course, regularly steals the show. He is the under-active dog that Nina got from the dog shelter. There are a couple of fun secondary characters who just add to the fun.

If you are looking for a fun quick read with a great happy ending then this is a book for you. It helps if you love dogs! I gave this book Four Crowns because whilst I enjoyed it, I found Alex to be a little over-bearing and unrealistic at times.
