“Look, I was desperate for Jennifer Crusie kind of books. You know the easy, quirky, funny kind of book. And when I saw I didn’t read one of her book while searching for her new books, I found this. I found it and started reading it and OH MY GOD. I shouldn’t have read it. It was damn, such a tiny book but managed to put shit load of bullshit characters. I didn’t like the leading female and her “craziness”. I usually love Ms. Crusie’s woman. But man, this female is unbearable and her sister is worse than her. Who calls 1000 fucking times when you are shopping and tell them you have company? And she talks about all their fucking issues in front of strangers. This book is a disgrace to her. I wish I find some more writers like her, I miss her books. For definitely not this kind.”
“When I first picked up Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie, I admittedly expected a fluffy potentially sexy holiday story. I mean, the title itself kind of speaks to that, don’t you think? It could be just me that was thinking that though I highly doubt it. Anyway, while I did get a somewhat enjoyable read, I did find myself wondering if it was just too action packed for the number of pages because instead of a sexy holiday read, I found myself receiving a strangely action packed rondeaux of a woman, a man, and a hostage situation over a Christmas toy. It was all pretty overwhelming and to me, I think it would have worked a little bit better if there was more time to build things up over time instead of just one night. http://goodbooksandgoodwine.com/2015/12/allison-hot-toy-jennifer-crusie-novella-review.html”

About Jennifer Crusie

Jennifer Crusie was researching her dissertation on the differences in the way men and women tell stories when she got sidetracked into writing romance novels.

Her first book was published in 1993 (which pretty much finished off any hope of her getting that PhD) and her twenty-second book, Maybe This Time, came out in August of 2010, all of which she considers a minor miracle, especially since she is also a New York Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author and a two-time Rita award winner
