Retro Friday Reviews is a feature hosted by Angieville where you basically review an older or underrated title on Fridays!
I still can’t get over how funny the original cover of Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie is with the pronostache and all. THIS STATED, OMG Jennifer Crusie where have you been all my life? Manhunting is the second Jennifer Crusie book I’ve read and while it is NOT as amazeballs as Bet Me, it’s more sexy and I still fell in LOVE.
So, Kate, main character of Manhunting is a financial wizard and has been engaged three times to various douchebags. She’s looking for love and marriage, but not TOO hard. Prompted by her BFF Jessie, Kate takes a vacation to a golf resort in Kentucky, to find a man. Of course, her plan backfires – but she finds herself more and more attracted to lazy handyman Jake who totes DOES have a mustache.
Friends, Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie is such a good feeling book. After finishing it, I was in a great mood. I can’t help but feel buoyed after reading about Crusie’s smart, sassy heroines. And okay, make fun of me as much as you want, but I love a good love story and quite liked the chemistry between Jake and Kate. Yes, their relationship is fast, but it’s not instalove and is built on important things.
Look, $4.47 is NOT a whole heck of a lot to pay for a few hours of swooning, cheering, and laughter. Yes, bits of Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie are 90s-tastic, but it is SO totally worth reading, especially if you are sick of the teenagers in the books you are reading getting ALL the action.
Disclosure: Purchased my Kindle copy.
