Book Review: Crazy For Your Love by Lexi Ryan

Book 5 of Jackson Harbor series

I’m not a fan of jumping right into a book that’s part of a series, mostly because it takes a few chapters to catch up on the characters and who belongs to who and so forth. I admit that I did have a bit of this for the first few chapters and felt that I was missing something by not reading the previous four books. I’ve missed four entire books! I fell in love with the characters by the end. The previous four have been added to my TBR and wish list. I would read any future work by Ryan.

Carter Jackson is riddled with guilt. A shell of his former self. He self medicates with womanizing something that’s just not him. Before he was a long term relationship type of guy–always trying to find his forever girl. One moment changed everything. To top it all off, everyone keeps calling him a hero for saving an adorable puppy–shirtless. Of course that crap ended up online and he’s an online star. None of it he deserves.

Teagan Chopra is cashing in on the huge favor she did for her friend. I mean she did admit to being his girlfriend to a large crowd full of people, what’s one more week right? Oh and he needs to come to her sister’s wedding with her as his boyfriend to fend off her ex boyfriend who her parents adore and expect her to reconnect with. Said ex, is who she ran away from when she arrived in Jackson Harbor. The problem with her plan…he has been crushing on her friend since she met him. When he kissed her on-stage, she forgot where she was. The man can kiss. It’s not real. None of his touches are.

Both are keeping secrets from each other and their loved ones. What happens when those secrets are exposed? Can their relationship survive it? Can their friendship?

Crazy for Your Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Ryan is live!

A family wedding with a fake boyfriend, meddling parents, and an obsessive ex . . . What could go wrong?

The only thing worse than being single at my sister’s wedding is finding out that my ex will be there too. Not just any ex—the guy everyone expected me to marry, the man I came to Jackson Harbor to escape.

Now I need a date, and fast. Enter Carter Jackson—the firefighter who’s dealing with an unwanted five minutes of fame ever since a shirtless photo of him saving a puppy went viral. He’s warding off propositions left and right, and he needs a fake relationship as much as I do.

Sweet and sexy, Carter is completely off-limits. See, I have a rule. A no heartache rule. Not only is Carter my friend and a known heartbreaker, but his job as a firefighter puts him in danger daily, and that’s something I just can’t handle.

The commitment between us might be pretend, but the passion all too real. As crazy as it makes me, I have to keep Carter at an arm’s length. Even that might not be enough to spare my heart.
