    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.

    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.
