I can only say that it was "ok"., because I don't remember the characters' names......

The art teacher is living w/ the coach... apparently he just decided she was going to be his wife & slowly took over her life....

Everything is going smoothly for him until she rescues the dog and he sets out to get rid of it, which pisses her off enough for her to move out & buy her own place....

The move causes a chain-reaction: the coach starts losing all his games then begins stalking & sabotaging her; the acting Principal gets vindictive; her mother comes out of the closet; her best friend tries (and fails) to spice up her marriage; and she falls in love w/ her best friend (former brother-in-law).....

My main problem was she was wishy-washy & kept ignoring the main problem & threat.... Which to me was sheer stupidity on her part. ( )

Hmmm... Just as I was beginning to think I would love everything Jennifer Crusie ever wrote... This one was a bit off and creepy. Quinn leaving Bill I was completely on board with, but then immediately getting together with Nick? Somehow the narrative made it seem OK, but really? I never believed they had been "best friends". What happened to Nick's "I can't share my life, I can't even sleep in the same bad as some one else"? And then there was Bill becoming more and more deranged and this began to jar badly in what had been a romantic comedy. Max and Darla started off funny/sweet, but then she left her sons (how old were they?) for ages. And then there was the love triangle that was Quinn's parents and Edie... I was skimming the second half. (I did like Zoe and Ben, though). ( )

Good story with so many relationships and plenty of humor all while a disturbing situation was developing. I was pulled into this story even though it took awhile for the main romance to get going. Teacher Quinn adopts a stray dog that changes her relationships with both her live in boyfriend and long time friend.

Crusie's books are always fun to read. One of the things I like most about her books is that the relationships in them are almost always believable. In Crazy for You, Nick and Quinn have been best friends for some odd years. But when Quinn decides that she doesn’t like the direction her life is taking her, she starts making changes. One of them is her relationship with Nick. Nick doesn’t like commitment and avoids getting involved in anyone else’s problems as much as he can. But he can’t bring himself to say no to Quinn when she asks him to help her move out of her boyfriend’s apartment and it all spirals downhill from there for both of them. Quinn finds out that her “perfect” boyfriend might just be off his rocker and Nick finds himself more involved in Quinn’s affairs then he’s completely comfortable with. I loved Nick and Quinn’s relationship. It was nice to see a relationship that had developed over a long period of time and where the characters were friends first. Also, Quinn’s ex-boyfriend, Bill, was done really well. I know some people thought he was a little unbelievable and I did have a moment or two towards the end where I thought that same thing, but his actions and a lot of the things he pulled were believable to me.

First words
On a gloomy March afternnon, sitting in the same high school classroom she'd been sitting in for thirteen years, gritting her teeth as she told her significant other for the seventy-second time since they'd met that she'd be home at six because it was Wednesday and she was always home at six on Wednesdays, Quinn McKenzie lifted her eyes from the watercolor assignments on the desk in front of her and met her destiny.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312971125, Mass Market Paperback)

High school art teacher Quinn McKenzie's life is perfectly normal--and it's making her insane. She's living with Bill, the nicest guy in Tibbett, Ohio, and he's crazy about her. Really crazy. Quinn is already having serious doubts about the future of their relationship when Fate intervenes, in the form of the scrawniest, squirmiest scrap of a dog you'd ever want to lay eyes on. She figures if the dog has the good sense to detest Bill on first sight, she ought to pay attention. And besides, there's Nick Ziegler, local mechanic and totally unsuitable love interest. Of course, that only makes Nick all the more appealing, not to mention his phenomenal aptitude between the sheets, and against the wall, and in the car, and... But getting rid of Bill is harder than Quinn ever expected. In fact, Bill was the last person she would have thought would try to hurt her. Thank God Nick is as capable with a two-by-four as he is with an automobile engine! Jennifer Crusie's second contemporary romance is a smash--literally! You'll laugh while you're tucking the covers around you a little tighter. --Alison Trinkle
