Sunny Shelly’s Review: Hide Your Crazy, by Lani Lynn Vale

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
I’m
kind of a lady, but definitely more of a weirdo. 
Hearing
the woman at the table behind him say that to her friend should’ve turned Logan
Gibbs off.
It
doesn’t. In all honesty, it only makes him listen harder.
He’s
had enough weird in his life to last a lifetime. The last thing his complicated
life needs is a woman in it who has no clue what color you get when you mix
yellow and blue together.
Yet,
her obvious blonde moments aren’t enough to deter him. Nor is her lack of
finger-painting skills.
I’m
a cop, not a miracle worker. 
Hearing
the man in the group behind her say that should’ve had Katy Roberts running
away as fast as her feet would carry her. Katy’s father’s a cop, and it’s hard enough
to live her life with Daddy trying to dictate her every move. She needs another
cop in her life like she needs yet another thing to go wrong.
To
add onto that, she can’t find a job, has no love life to speak of, and has to
be the oldest known virgin in Kilgore, Texas.
Yet,
when she sees his painting—a painting that resembles a piece of the male
anatomy more than the lighthouse they were supposed to be painting—she knows
that she has to give him a chance.
The
very last thing the two of them expect is for her father and his boss to force
them to marry after an eensy-weensy accident. An accident that, surprisingly,
both of them want.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars

Ugh, I have mixed feelings about Hide Your Crazy. Logan and Katy have a funny meet-cute at a painting party, and then two more awkward encounters afterwards, when he gives her a ticket and then they realize they are neighbors. I thought they had a nice chemistry between them, but this instalove story just felt meh for me.

The stuff with Katy’s family was the most entertaining. Her dad, the police chief, doesn’t exactly like Logan, but her mom adores him. (sidenote: Katy’s dad and mom were the H/h in another LVL book, apparently. So this is a spin-off of another series.) I loved the relationship that Katy and Logan had with their dogs, and how Sister and Lou brings them together. But why didn’t we get more from his relationship with his brother in town? That was a throwaway scene that didn’t go anywhere. The whole mess with Logan’s ex-wife left me shaking my head. It felt clunky as I was reading the story. The name of the baby changed from Gibby, and then Gabby, and it was throwing me off.

Ultimately, there were quite a few issues here for me. And that kept me from falling in love with Logan and Katy. But, LVL is a prolific author with quite a following, so maybe her writing style just doesn’t do it for me.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
