Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher for this blog tour via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Gosh! Crazy for You was so freaking good. I didn’t expect to enjoy it this much but I fell in love with this book and the characters. Everything felt so real and I might have even shed a tear or two.
Emma and Ryan had been friends since their childhood and Emma had always harboured a crush on Ryan but she had never acted upon it. When her friends dare her to do something dangerous and bad, she takes on this opportunity with Ryan. But when feelings come in the way, it’s up to Ryan and Emma to decide what they really want.
I enjoyed this story soo goddamn much! I have to say, although the plot was predictable it still felt a whole new story… if you get what I mean. There was so much to love in this book, the friendship and the romance took me in for a ride and it all started with that one dare.
When Emma decides to spice up her life and her friends dare her and she makes a deal with the devil, aka Ryan. Ryan has never been the one to settle down and he didn’t even dare to look at Emma any other way after he promised her brother who was his best friend as well, that he would never take advantage of her. But he decides to give in when Emma manages to persuade him. I loved the relationship between them, they had already been friends for years and the author made a really good job because it certainly felt like they knew each other so well. Their relationship felt so natural (in the best way possible) and I absolutely loved the chemistry between them.
This book also focused on a great deal on friendship which I fell in love with. Emma and Gabby were just bff goals! I seriously adored those two sooo much. And on the other hand, we had Ryan, Ethan, and Mark who were practically more like family than friends. Trent provided another interesting aspect in the story though I would have loved to see some more brotherly bonding between the two.
Overall, Crazy for You was a great read. I loved how the plot was executed and the characters were layered. The romance between Emma and Ryan was everything!! I loved those two so much. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book. We got a glimpse of Jessica and Mark in this book and I can’t wait to read their story next!!
