Crazy For You by Jennifer Crusie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
"Crazy for You" takes place in a small town where the general thought seems to be that women need a man to take care of them, and most women would do anything to keep from being alone. After two years in a boring relationship in which she doesn't have much of a voice or personality, Quinn breaks up with her boyfriend who refuses to let her keep a stray dog.
This act of "craziness" is just the beginning for Quinn. She moves out, buys a house, cuts her hair, and starts flirting with her ex-brother-in-law, a committment phobe who's had a thing for Quinn since she was 16.
Pretty soon, her rebellion catches on. Her friend leaves her husband until he can give her some excitement, her mother leaves her father for another woman, and the town starts talking. But Quinn bears the brunt of the town's scorn for leaving "the Coach" after the baseball team doesn't make it to regionals, and then has to deal with said Coach going crazy stalker on her.
While not my favorite Crusie novel, this one was still cute. Crusie writes cute characters who go up against characters who are extremely easy to hate, so I spent alot of book wanting to jump through the pages and kick people. This was offset with Crusie's normal brand of humor though and the fluffy/steamy romance you get when her characters have chemistry.
