From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a revised novel sure to please her many fans. She writes “high speed comic mayhem” (Detroit Free Press); she’s “a blast of fresh air” (Washington Post), “side-splitting funny” (Publishers Weekly), and “a winner” (Glamour). In other words, she’s Janet Evanovich.

Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn’t prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window—or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer’s pizza and won his heart. But was there room in her chaotic schedule for a risk-taking inventor with dreams? She took classes, delivered pizzas, and cared for three eccentric old ladies she rescued from the train station. But Jake thrived on a challenge, and he could be very inventive. Could he teach her there was time to make butterscotch pudding and let herself be loved?

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 2/6/2014

    " I learned to stop indiscriminately reading Janet Evanovich. Although I love the Stephanie Plus series these other novels are horrendous. I cannot get over how stupid these characters are. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brooke | 12/3/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 10/14/2013

    " This was totally a romance! I was expecting a mystery. It was the same fun writing style from her Stephanie Plum books. I enjoyed it for what it was; total fluff! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 10/14/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 1/24/2013

    " very cute love story, but warning every one of these romance novels by J.E. is exactly the same. I ready them all because they were funny, easy little stories but it is the same story re-told. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 10/14/2012

    " My favorite relaxtion sort of book: "fluffy escapist literature". "

    " Cute story about love at first site. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 1/14/2012

    " Rather slow without as much substance as some of her other books. A lot of useless prittle prattle. Not one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Nelson | 10/6/2011

    " It was so cute! Full of her endless humor and romantic wit. A very enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dot | 8/2/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 5/26/2011

    " A very light read. Same kind of humorous she usually writes with but not with Stephanie as the character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shanna | 5/22/2011

    " I checked out this book not knowing it was a Romance. Apparently Janet Evanovich wrote "scintilating romances" before Stephanie Plum. I was not impressed with this story and the quality of writing was not typical of Evanovich. I'll stick to Stephanies mysteries rather than these Harlequin romances. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 4/29/2011

    " fluffy, predictable romance, but with Janet Evanovich humor (only redeeming factor) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Theresa | 4/27/2011

    " What is with all these romance novels?! I knew she used to write romance but I thought this was a newer book (ebook). You can see a bit of the Plum humor but still a silly romance novel. I've got to screen my book selections better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/23/2011

    " Usually I like her books, this was funny, but the situation that the main charature gets herself in is, well, pretty far fetched, though seems to be a theme in her earlier romance novels. Still, it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 3/29/2011

    " Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn't prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window, or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer's pizza and won his heart "

    " Rather slow without as much substance as some of her other books. A lot of useless prittle prattle. Not one of my favorites. "

    " Not quite as enjoyable as the Stephanie Plum series but still light hearted and a happy ending! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 11/26/2010

    " This book was... odd. The conflict was really forced and it ended very abruptly. Not a very interesting journey for the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 11/20/2010

    " I had read this before, I think last February but didn't add it to my goodreads list for some reason. This time I listened on audio and oddly enough I think I liked it in print more than on audio. It's a cute story and I liked the characters, its a fun and quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda (LoveofJoe11) | 11/18/2010

    " Really, same old plot, different characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norma | 11/18/2010

    " Great book! If you love any of Janet's other books, you will love this one.

    The characters are always quirky in a way that will give you a good laugh. Definitely a must read.

    Some of the situations that Berry gets herself into are hilarious. "
