Lucy Savage is having a streak of bad luck. It all started two months ago when she married her husband, Bradley, because of the second law of thermonuclear dynamics. Well, maybe it was actually to get the house of her dreams, a big old Victorian. But after catching Bradley with the blonde, it was time for Lucy to move on. Then things went from bad to worse. Bradley stood her up in divorce court; she was tackled in an alley by a gun-wielding hoodlum, who turned out to be a cop. Of course, she didn't find that out until after she beat him up. She's been shot at, her car blew up, and experimentation with color has left her hair green.
Zack Warren, the sexy detective Lucy attacked, is sure her ex-husband is the same Bradley he's trying to arrest for embezzlement. Now Zach has moved in with Lucy to provide police protection. But they both may need protection, more from each other, because the case is not the only thing heating up!
I have read a couple of other books by Crusie, and while this story was good, I didn't feel it was her best work. Overall, it was cute and the dialogue witty, but it lacked the laugh out loud humor found in her other work I've read thus far. It was a fast-paced read, but I did find it relatively easy to lay the book aside when I needed to. Lucy and Zack were likeable main characters, but not very memorable.
Ms. Crusie hooked me upon reading my first book by her, "Welcome to Temptation", probably one of the best novels I've ever read. Since then, I'm working on her backlist, which is how I came across this story. This looks to be an early work of hers, and I can see her growth as a writer. As for a recommendation, if you're a Crusie fan, I'd recommend trying this one. If you've never read her work, start with "Welcome to Temptation", instead of this one.

While I didn't enjoy this book at all, I was able to finish it, so I'll give it an extra half star.

The main characters, Lucy and Zack, are just intolerable. Let's start with Lucy. She has no personality other than stupid. Seriously, this is your typical too-stupid-to-live character, yet at no point does she actually die. That was a little disappointing. She is completely forgettable and unremarkable, but everyone that meets her is inexplicably enamoured of her. The best friend of the love-interest is "sending his love to Lucy", after meeting her a few times over the span of one or two days. And she is petulant for no reason other than it just so happens to move the plot along.
The male character, Zack, is just as bad. He is the typical bad boy, player type that suddenly falls for the girl and does a 180. He is condescending, controlling, and over-bearing. His best friend can barely say hello to Lucy without Zack jumping down his throat.
He constantly acts as though Lucy is completely incapable of doing the most basic things by herself, which is infuriating. Then, there was the charming moment when he ordered Lucy to grab him a beer and make him dinner.
We're told throughout the book of the character's motivations, but never once do they seem genuine. We're told time and time again that Lucy is logical. That is supposed to be her entire personality, but her actions are always petty and ridiculous. Zack on the other hand is wild and afraid to commit, but we never actually see any of that. According to his actions, he is an over-eager commiter.
The whole book reads like a woman's fantasy of meeting the bad boy and changing him with the power of her lovin'. Not only does the bad boy completely fall for the girl, he proposes marriage after a few days. Seriously. They have sex once and he's a new man.
It was cheesy and dull. I wouldn't suggest anyone read it.

Lucy Savage was not having a good day. Her husband, whom she was trying to divorce for cheating on her, didn't even do her the courtesy of showing up at the courthouse where their marriage was dissolved. Her brassy blonde hair, which she had just had done, looked terrible and her sister was nagging at her to take more risks again. More risks?! Didn't she realize that every time she took a risk it ended in disaster? Still, the day wasn't a total wash, there was a pretty cute guy in the diner where she had lunch with her sister. Well, she thought he was pretty cute until he tried to mug her in the alley. Then he had the gall to claim to be a police officer trying to save her life after someone took a shot at her!
Detective Zack Warren has never seen anyone as in need of protection as Lucy Savage, but he definitely doesn't want to be the guy trying to do the protecting. All he wants is for Lucy to lead him to her ex-husband Bradley whom they suspect of stealing several thousand dollars from the bank he worked at. Only problem is Lucy told Bradley she never wanted to speak with him again and hasn't seen or heard from him since. Still, Zack has a hunch that Lucy is key to breaking the case so he moves in with her and her two nutty dogs to provide 24 hour protection. Next thing she knows, Lucy has accidentally turned her hair green, adopted another dog off the street and fallen head over heels in love with Zack! But she knows that Zack isn't serious when he says that he loves her and wants to marry her, after all, he is way too big of a risk for her to take...
Getting Rid of Bradley is a fun, fast read that I enjoyed, but it is nothing special or spectacular. This is a bit disappointing as Jennifer Crusie's books are usually pretty memorable - for her zany characters if nothing else.
