Sunny Shelly’s Review: This Is Crazy, by Natasha Madison

 

 

 

 

From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This
is…
 
Zara Stone
 
All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know
better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my
brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my
brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went
in the opposite direction.
 
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage,
he broke up with me.
 
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I
couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to
make that man see that I did not need him.
Evan Richards
 
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready
to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my
career high wave.
 
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to
crash her ex’s wedding.
 
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night
with a beautiful woman.
 
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea
twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.
When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:

 

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

In the modern age of Instagram and Twitter, of course there are romances where the heroine slides into the hero’s DM. When Zara’s ex gets engaged, she messages hockey star Evan to be her faux date… and of course, one thing leads to another and friends with benefits becomes a crazy love affair.

These characters had great chemistry. Zara is feisty and spunky, and Evan is a hot alpha. There are some nice moments between them, even if there is the dreaded she’s-never-O’d-before. It just didn’t work for me. I think I would have liked them a lot more without that plot point. But it is what it is.

This Is Crazy is the first book in a new series by Natasha Madison, and a spin-off of her Something So series. There is crossover from the characters, and they are in quite a bit of the background of the story. I’ve only read one of the Something books, so I was a little lost about the relationships and connections, but Zara and Evan stood well enough on their own. But if you’ve loved the Something So series, then you will love the catch-up with that gang.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers
flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals.
You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or
possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her
characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
