Don't Look Down

I love Jennifer Crusie, and this is a Jennifer Crusie/Bob Mayer collaboration, so when it was offered to me free, I jumped at it. And it had plenty of elements of a great Crusie book, but they were sort of...watered down by the effects of the Bob Mayer writing.

That's not to say that Mayer isn't any good. The book was well-written, the plot exciting. It's just that Crusie books are normally some of the best "chick lit" but this had a lot of what I think is Mayer's typical "dude lit." In other words...a lot of superfluous sleeping around, boobie talk, Armed Forces references, technical schtuff, and so forth.

Thus, it was pretty good, but no match for Crusie on her own. A fun, quick, completely implausible but enjoyable read.
