    Storyteller wo does not read

    When you write 'Jack and her ......' instead of 'she and Jack.....' it shows that this person does not read; or maybe she reads books like this one
    This book has a lot of sex, (not classy) with the use of colloquial profane language.
    Poor grammar
    No character development
    Poor storytelling.

    If some of your text is missing, too, I got it back by changing the text on my nook tablet from night to day or gray. Don't know what is up with that.

    Hard to read

    I stopped reading this book halfway through. It was so hard to follow along. I found myself having to reread pages to make sense of it. The storyline was practically nonexistant. Grammer was awful. I don't recommend it and I'm usually a fan of cheesy romance novels.

    It is full of grammatical errors. This book is witty, funny and lovely in all its flawed goodness. It you want a light read this book is for you.

    This is the first book I have read by Marquita Valentine and I w

    This is the first book I have read by Marquita Valentine and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually liked her writing style.  Melanie's character had a lot of depth to her, however, she forgave Carter way too easily for me to believe.  He said some outrageous things to her and she really didn't make him work for it to get her back.  Carter's character was pretty well developed and he definitely had some mouth filtering issues that made me cringe several times.  His character was more than reluctant to get involved with Melanie since she was his sister's best friend. Their relationship was rocky and had some moments that were a bit much.  It had a nice ending and overall I would give it 3.5 stars.

    This was such a good story. Read the Holland Springs series and wondered why Carter and Melanie weren't mentioned through out. They were sooo cute

    Sexy, Funny...a Must read Author! A die-hard fan, if Marq


    Sexy, Funny...a Must read Author!





    A die-hard fan, if Marquita Valentine's name is on the cover, I already know I'm going to love the book. Drive Me Crazy is no exception! I was thrilled to receive an eARC of this book, and I couldn't wait to dive into it, even though I had other books already lined up.

    Welcome back to Holland Springs, this time a few years before Valentine's previous books took place. Carter Ambrose and Melanie Ann Smith have known each other since childhood, but in many ways they're nothing alike. Melanie thinks she's not good enough for Carter, plus what man would fall in love with his sister's best friend? But she can't help her feelings for him, and when he comes back to town to start his own shop, she decides it's time to show him how she feels--at least a little bit. He's crazy for her, but is it just lust or something more?

    Carter was a flawed hero, I'll admit, but I still loved him. He was a jerk at times, and often opened his mouth without first engaging his brain (and admits it). But then again, what guy doesn't at some point or another? What I did like was the fact that he often knew where he had made the mistake, and wanted to fix things with Melanie. He'd say something in one chapter that would make me want to slap him, but as soon as his dirty talking started...oh, I was a goner! I melted for him all over again, just like Melanie. :)

    Melanie was a great heroine. She knew what she wanted from life, and she was set on working for it, even with her father's gambling and troubles always getting in her way, and other people's judgment of her pushing her back down. She was strong, but not too strong, and she had, as Carter would say, a sassy mouth, which I enjoyed.

    4.5 STARS! Wow, with ever new book Marquita Valentine writes, I think that I have found my new favorite...until the next one comes out. I've yet to be disappointed by one of her books, and I don't think it's possible, to be honest. If you want a sexy, fun, and slightly addicting contemporary read, be sure to pick up Valentine's books--all of them. Trust me, you'll thank me later! :) Drive Me Crazy had me smiling and blushing, and just having a great time while reading it. I loved Carter's dirty talk, couldn't get enough of it, really, and I can't wait to see how Valentine's next book turns out. Impatiently waiting, and in the meantime I'll revisit all her other books. For Carter's story, I think all my bookmarks will be around the smexy scenes. Nothing wrong with that! :

    This book was rushed. On one page carter says he cant have feelings for his sisters best friend. The very next page hes kissing her chest. Thats just one of the rushed parts. The constant "fighting" they did was irritating. I didnt hate this book but i sure didnt love it.
