“Lily Darlington’s been called crazy in her day—and, yeah, driving her car into her ex-husband’s living room probably wasn’t the smartest move ever made—but the louse deserved it. Now Lily is happily single, and she’s turned it all around. She knows she’s a good mom, a homeowner, and a businesswoman, all wrapped up in one good-looking package.
A package that police officer Tucker Matthews is dying to unwrap. This ex-military man sure doesn’t need another woman in his life. His last girlfriend left him with nothing but memories and a cat named Pinky! But living next door to Lily has been driving him nuts. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. And maybe it’s time to go a little crazy . . . and fall in love.”
I bought this eBook from Amazon when it was available for the bargain price of just 99p (current price £1.99). I always enjoy books by this author (you can read my reviews here) so I was looking forward to getting started.
Straight away I got a strong sense of Lily’s crazy and impulsive past, she appeared to have mellowed with age though and at this point she was a sensible mother and businesswoman. The story was also told from Tucker’s point of view and I learned about his past which seemed to be just as eventful as Lily’s was. I liked all of the characters, particularly Lily’s son Pippen and Tucker’s cat Pinky – any book with a pet always goes down well with me :).
As with all of Rachel Gibson’s books the main characters Lily and Tucker had fantastic chemistry, unfortunately this time I felt that everything moved a bit too quickly for my liking, although seeing as this book is a novella I guess it had to move along more swiftly than normal.
Crazy On You contained some strong language and sexual scenes so if you are likely to be offended by this then it probably isn’t for you.
This steamy, quick read was classic Rachel Gibson – complete escapism!
