    So much better than I anticipated!

    I wasn't too crazy about reading this book. It was a book club book and I don't really like contemporary romances, but Suzan said it was really worth a read - so I read it. In one sitting. It's so freaking adorable you just want it to go on and on and on!

    The Setting -- varies between a secluded beach resort where there are moonlit liaisons and sea tossed passion to Richmond, Virginia hiding out in a make-do apartment. It's not a setting you haven't seen before, but the author makes you feel part of it without taking paragraphs to describe the way waves move sand or the way seagulls bank on sea breezes; you got the idea of where you were - and stayed focused on what was important.

    The Characters -- were so well done! Chloe is a smart girl who finds herself in an unfortunate circumstance because she had blinders on. She was making smart choices - not necessarily the ones that were honest to her, but good ones. Max is the character who steals your heart. I think there need to be more characters like Max because there are more real people out there like him than we can really tell. I'm not going to spoil this because it's really good! The supporting duo romance of Chloe's best friend, Jen, and Max's brother, Elliot, is no less sweet and simple and complicated than their friends. You find yourself sympathetic to their situation and seeing how - in this day and age, there are people out there like Anne, Max, and Jen.

    The Plot - jumps from one failed romance into a weekend fling. I didn't quite like that - but it works for this story. Chloe even remarks on it herself, so I thought it was good that it got a nod and an explanation. While I think the circumstances were a bit blown out of proportion, it made for an exciting, mostly believable read.

    Read it. You'll love it.

    A delightful read

    Crazy For Love by Victoria Dahl is a fun filled sexy story about love and all its ups and downs.

    Chloe Turner live has spun out of control. The press has pegged her as a bridezilla after her fiancé faxed his own death just to get away from her. She doesn't deserve that title nor the constant press that goes along with it. So Chloe and her best friend Jenn Castellan try to hide on a beach resort. Chloe's eye is caught by the handsome man who is residing in the cabin next store with his brother.

    Max Sullivan is on a much needed vacation. He takes his brother along to help him get over his broken marriage. Max is intrigued by his cabin neighbor Chloe, she seems so normal and that is all that max can handle. Chloe lets Max be himself and he starts to trust her with all his quirks. But soon Chloe's past comes to the island and Max isn't sure he wants to be apart of this circus.

    Max and Chloe's relationship is funny and wickedly sexy. They both bring out the fun in each other and can be their true self's. But Chloe's past won't just go away, so can these do find a way to be together in the real world?

    Crazy For Love is exceptional. The characters are not perfect and that makes them so much more likeable. You find yourself routing for them and savoring every progress they make. This book is laugh out loud funny and steamy sexy. I really hated for the story to end, I feel in love with all the characters. I am looking forward to this authors next book.

    Not as good as I wanted it to be-not her best work

    If you want to read a Victoria Dahl contemporary romance book, do not read this one. Please read the Tumble Creek triology. I was soooo looking forward to this release and I was very disappointed. Max, the lead male was so annoying. To me, he was nervous nelly and there is no way I would thought of him as strong romantic male. I ended skipping through the book just to get to the end. Elliot was more believable character. I hope she writes about Jenn and Elliot hopefully it will have the Dahl fast pace banner and strong plot that orginally had me liking her contemporary romance novels.

    I Loved It

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com*****On a small island off the coast of Virginia, four troubled souls arrive seeking a refuge to lick their wounds and heal enough to face their challenges in their real world.

    Victoria Dahl, with finesse and charming style, weaves the lives of two accountants, a dive supervisor on a treasure hunting ship, and a workaholic scientist together creating love stories that are breathtaking and beautiful at times and full of angst at other times. Exquisite imagery, subtle humor, and remarkable character development make Crazy For Lovesparkle with life and energy.

    Max Sullivan, with his image of a fun-loving, carefree treasure hunter, has hidden his true personality for years. When Chloe sees through this guise, he finds himself struggling with his control issues that rule his actions.

    To him the pretty, curvy Chloe pulsates with warmth, peace, calm and normalcy-things so far from his life. However, the paparazzi depict her as the crazy, worst bridezilla on earth. They have made her life a torment for weeks. She has declared they will not control her thoughts and action while she is on her island respite. But, the ugliness invades setting her trust issues and Max's control issues on full alert.

    Chloe's protective friend Jenn lives her life being afraid of becoming like her mother who believes all men cheat. The good ones are just more discrete about it. Consequently, Jenn is shy and off-putting around men while longing to be loved. When Max's brother Elliott makes awkward overtures, Jenn is smitten but flounders in connecting with him.

    Back in Richmond where the bizarre situation created by Chloe's ex-fiancé's antics started a media feeding frenzy, emotions, manipulations, and secret dealings create an atmosphere of intrigues.

    However, the transporting love scenes make Crazy For Love a sizzling, satisfying story while giving the reader a glimpse of the deep emotional needs being met by soul mates that chance to meet on the beach of a little island.

    Romantic Comedy at it's best!

    Victoria Dahl is a true Contemporary Romance genius. Her Hero's are lust worthy and sweet while her Heroines are hilariously realistic and likeable and in this novel there are double the heroes and double the heroines so it's double the Hottness!

    This is probably Dahl's best book yet and the humor never ends which is a great pairing with the romantic style of all Victoria Dahl books. There were moments when I had to cover my face with embarrassment for the Heroines while saying "Oh my gawd, she didn't!"

    You might think that the characters would be a repeat of Dahl's previous contemporaries but you will be pleasantly surprised that these characters are fresh and new.almost shiny even. If you are a fan of Dahl's you feel a new justification for it and if you aren't one yet after this book you will be.

    An amusing contemporary romance

    Chloe Turner is stunned how far her fiancé went to end their engagement; he faked his death. She is stunned by the macabre ruse by someone who allegedly loves her; Chloe and her BFF Jenn travel to White Rock Island to get away from everything.

    At the resort, Chloe and Jenn meet Max and Elliot Sullivan. Treasure hunter Max feels protective of his sibling and vulnerable women; meanwhile Elliot remains in shellshock over a recent divorce and agreeing to go with his brother on vacation as he never leaves work. Max is attracted to Chloe so he keeps trying to rescue her but he believes she only needs rescuing from him and his good intention misdeeds.

    This amusing contemporary romance stars a woman distrusting men and a man with a hero complex. The story line is fast-paced as Max needs to rescue Chloe who has no need for rescuing especially from a hunk as her broken heart mends. Fans of lighthearted frolics will enjoy this fun romp as Max tries to control his instinctive impulse to save the day but Chloe is not perilous Pauline except for fear her heart will break again.
