I haven't had the pleasure to read very much of Molly O'Keefe's work but I really enjoyed Crazy Thing Called Love. I have not read the other two books in the Crooked Creek Ranch series but I didn't feel like I was missing anything important. I would like to read the other two books in the series because I did enjoy this one. This book was a classic case of a second chance with a first love.




I really liked Maddie even though she has a really tough outer lining that she created to avoid pain,.I could see her sweet and caring side under the rough exterior she puts off. Maddie thinks she has the perfect life that she needs to protect her from the pain of loving someone again.




Billie is the bad boy of Hockey, he's missing something in his life and he knows what it is.... Maddie. I loved when he was given a chance to go on her morning show. My goodness the sparks these two throw off when they are in the same room is almost combustible. I really enjoyed watching Maddie & Billie try to work around each other without showing their feelings. He is in for some major lifestyle changes. I loved the family aspect in this book. I want to expand more on my feelings here but I really hate to give anything away so I'm going to say click on the link on the bottom and go get this book for yourself so you can read all about.




Maddie and Billie have a lot of obstacles to overcome together and they each have to learn to trust the other with their heart. They have both grown a lot over the years but there is still a bond there that has never went away. I found this to be a sweet story with some spicy scenes. There is some drama, some laughter, and some really touching scenes through out the story.




I know I would most certainly enjoy reading more of Molly O'Keefe's work, I found her writing style to be very pleasant to read with an interesting storyline to keep me turning the pages quickly.




I was extremely excited to win a copy of this book on Librarything in exchange for an honest review. It has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you on this book.

crazy good story

in hockey there are players known to be enforcers, these players are usually the ones that will drop the gloves and fight. hockey is getting away from that format now. billy wilkins is an enforcer that is no longer needed on his team. his ex-wife that he still loves is the host of a morning show that has decided to 'make-over' a man. billy is that man. she fights the feelings she has for him, but he is trying to win her back. to do so he has to prove he is no longer the boy he was when they were married, and has changed for the better. not easy. this story runs the gamut of every emotion you can name, and done with dignity. a glass of wine, a fire in the fireplace and this story and it's a good night!!!

    Have you ever read a book that destroyed you and put you back to

    Have you ever read a book that destroyed you and put you back together at the same time? Crazy Thing Called Love by Molly O'Keefe is one such book; or it was for me. For my first introduction to Molly's books, I couldn't have picked a better one. I'd never heard of Molly before this, but it was the hockey player in the blurb, Billy that struck my fancy. Plus it was also second chance love story with the woman who had gotten away. There was no way I wasn't going to read this book.




    I was hooked from the very first page and the introduction to both Billy and Maddy. I wasn't just hooked, I was in pain. Pain because Maddy and Billy were never going to be the same after that prologue and it hurt. In just a few pages Molly O'Keefe ripped apart three hearts, Maddy's, Billy's, and my own. Every time I re-read that prologue, I get the same tears in my eyes and that pain in my gut. It never fails. This is a beautiful story. It's one of redemption, finding ones self, and family, both the ones we make and the ones we're born with. Gah! Just thinking about this book makes my heart race.




    Molly kept the book going at a frenetic pace. It was enough fast and so interesting. I didn't know what turn the book was going to take. I know many readers will find it fast or even confusing but trust me, this book is worth 5 stars and reading it slowly just to soak in the story. This book was nominated for a RITA, the equivalent of a romance Oscar, in the contemporary romance category. I'm surprised it didn't win.




    This book is on my keeper shelf. After reading this book, I discovered it was actually the third book in a series and went back and read both books. This trilogy catapulted Molly O'Keefe onto my "must-read authors list". If you enjoy contemporary romance that'll keep you in knots, tears, and laughter, then this book is definitely for you.

    WOW!!!

    I read all the time and love many books but rarely do I get into a story like this! Brilliant! Writing is outstanding! Characters are special! Backstory is so sad while the future is so bright... Maddie and Billy are so real I found myself holding my breath at some of the happenings... I am never a spoiler and I won't be now but if you haven't read this book, please do.. It is one of my top five of this year and I have read over 100 books since the first of 2014.. Wonderful story about a forever love.. About a hearts ability to forgive and about every humans need to give as well as receive... Great Story!!!

    Loved every page!
    Crazy Thing Called Love is one of the best books I've read in years! A good romance from the opening pages, this story takes an unexpected and heartwarming turn the moment Becky and Charlie (our hero's niece and nephew) appear. I plan to read more by this author.
