Every so often I run across a book that gets its hooks in, and doesn’t let go. Crazy Thing Called Love is definitely one of them.
There’s really only two things you need to know about Crazy Thing Called Love: Pick this up if you love a good contemporary romance. And grab a box of tissues before you sit down. You’ll need it. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
Once upon a time, a boy barely holding his life together met a girl stronger than she looks. They became best friends, grew up, fell in love, and got married. Then dreams (his) got in the way of a good thing, and they broke up.
Fourteen years later, the man the boy’d grown into shows up on the television show the girl-turned-woman anchors. And we get a story filled with enough emotion to sink the Titanic all over again. (See, I told you you’d need tissues…)
There’s plenty of heartbreak in this story of love found and lost, plenty of angst, and plenty of redemption and forgiveness. Molly O’Keefe gives Billy the gift of hindsight, Maddy the gift of courage, and readers the gift of a well-told story — complete with hurdles and obstacles over and beyond the emotional angst that comes with any second chance.
Definitely a pick-up for romance fans. You can thank me later.
