Objective: Find Man. Must be rich, handsome, and successful. Kate Svenson is attractive, successful, a brilliant businesswoman, and miserable. After three failed engagements, she realizes it's time for a P L A N, an organized, detailed agenda with a clear goal: finding Mr. Right. The Cabins resort is ripe with eligible bachelors, all rich, distinguished, and ambitious, just her type. And they're dropping like flies around her - at least, that's how Jake Templeton views the situation. After he's stuck pulling her latest reject out of the swimming pool, Jake's convinced this femme fatale is trouble. Especially for him. But can a man who's sworn off ambition for good and a woman hanging from the top of the corporate ladder find common ground in the unpredictable territory called the heart, where the word proposal takes on a very different meaning.… (mehr)

I was enjoying this book and it's smart, successful heroine already when I came across this line:

Donald screamed, and she shoved his hand away so he wouldn't get blood on her potatoes.

And it moved from a solid four-star book to a solid five-star favorite. I loved how completely independent the heroine was, while still being aware of her own weaknesses. I loved how she wanted romance AND career success without sacrificing either, but insisted on finding her own definition of that success. I loved how the hero (Jake, definitely not Donald) respected and admired her well before he even liked her. Great book. ( )

So funny definitely a re-read ( )

Kate is a successful business management consultant who feels trapped in her job and life. She wants to get married, but how would she meet a man? Jake thinks he has it made, working in outdoors management at his brother's rural resort, but his life is going nowhere. Everyone says he needs a plan, but he just doesn't want to hear it. They couldn't be more different, but who says opposites can't attract?

Thus is the premise of Jennifer Crusie's first novel, Manhunting. While it is predictable and a bit eye-roll inducing, it still bears the humorous mark that characterizes her later work. The dialogue is witty, the characters fun, and the near death experiences worthy of giggles. The book is fluff, but of the best kind. A fun, quick read to take your mind off of things. ( )

One of the things that really turns me off in a romance is characters who act out in unrealistic and outrageous ways. In this novel, the female lead expresses her disinterest in a couple of suitors by actually assaulting them, and it's played for laughs. I didn't find that funny. I've enjoyed the other books I've read by this author, but this one was a miss. ( )

I love Jennifer Crusie, so any book by her is automatically on my read list. This was not my favorite of hers just because "Bet Me" will always hold that place in my heart.

This story was about Kate and Jake. Kate is a type A hard-working career woman who has had 3 engagements in the past 3 years. None of them were successful and so she decides to go on vacation to Kentucky and put in place her "plan" to find a man.

Jake used to live life in the fast lane, but he got burned. Now, he lives the easy life on the resort he co-owns with his brother and is not in the mood for another woman like his ex-wife.

Two such different people don't seem meant to be, but they find friendship on the lake and that is the premise of this story.
I enjoyed the humor and the romance. My only complaint is I wish it was longer. ( )
