Crazy Love by Michelle Pace

After dropping out of law school, Sam Beaumont fears coming home will either be like sucking poison out of snakebite or drowning in a bathtub of gin. He dreads the whirlwind of being a blue-blood in Savannah, and between his mother and his brother a peaceful existence is out of the question.

Miles away from her ugly past, Annie Clarke is thriving in pharmacy school. Uncomfortable with her own success, she begins to fall back to her self-sabotaging ways.

Then along comes Trip Beaumont, a hot, edgy artist. Every instinct in her says run, which only makes him that much more tempting. The day she finally agrees to go out with him, his younger brother, Sam, shows up. Sam's first words about Trip chill her: "Don't be fooled by the act. Prince Charming is a toxic monster."

Annie soon sees that Sam's callous exterior is a direct result of coping with a family as dysfunctional as her own. Could love shield them both from spiraling into madness, or will their crazy worlds collide like renegade storm fronts leaving devastation and destruction in their wake?

Review by Yara Greathouse, You know you are reading a great story when you are not ready for the book to end and it leaves you wanting more… This is what Crazy Love has done to me. Michelle Pace creates intricate, complicated characters that anyone can relate to. She mixes rich and poor, old and new, fun and mysterious like an expert weaver. The end product is delicious and beautiful. Pace is very descriptive without overwhelming the reader, and the supporting characters will also grab you and won’t let go. Crazy love is the story of Annie, who is damaged goods but on the mend, and her relationship with two brothers, Trip and Sam Beaumont. Trip is an artist who has done a lot of things wrong, but there is a reason for his crazy behavior. This behavior is the cause of his crumbled marriage to Violet, which - by the way - is a beautiful supporting character. They both have a daughter, Maisie, whom Trip is about to lose due to impending nuptials between Violet and her new fiancé. I must confess, I develop a major crush on Trip while reading this novel! I think you will too. Sam is troubled in a different way. He drops Law School to return home, where he is constantly fighting off a controlling mother and trying to figure out what is going on with his brother Trip. In the middle of everything he finds himself falling for a very unlikely person, Annie. Jayse is Annie’s roommate and best friend. He is supportive and provides a lot of comic relief throughout the book, but takes a dark turn towards the end. I had questions about his behavior, and let me give you heads up – the questions are not answered within these pages… Which gives me hope that there will be a novella or a second book to address this complicated character. I don’t want to go into a lot of details, because of the many turns the storyline takes, but let it be said that it will keep you guessing until almost the very end. Every family has skeletons in their closet and the rich and powerful is also full of them. You need to experience this book all on your own. The best paragraph of the book, in my humble opinion is this one delivered by Annie: “I believe that life is one fourth genetic, one fourth luck, one fourth willpower, and one fourth focus. Being out of balance can completely screw up your equilibrium. I guess sometimes you have to overcompensate in the last two categories to keep your life in course while it’s careening down the side of the mountain.” It stroke a chord with me because it is a true statement, but I never really thought about it quite like that. I absolutely love it and will have a special placement in my list of quotes. Also, as with all of her work, her research is amazing and I end up learning something new from each of her books. This one taught me on the art of Rubbing. If you are wondering what it is, please read the book. With this story, the characters, the twists, suspense and angst, you will end up loving it like crazy. I know I did.

You know how there are some authors who just have pure, raw, natural talent? Talent that’s so bright that it cannot help but to shine even when it sits in a pile of poo? Michelle Pace is one such author for me. She has an honesty that draws you instantly not only into the story, but inside the characters. Pace puts pen to paper and the scene becomes alive. I could feel the balmy breeze from the willow trees in Savannah. I could smell the sweet tea, because really, what else is there to drink in the South? I could hear the sweet twang of people talking that can only be heard in those parts. And I say those parts because that’s what folks say. This being Pace’s first solo work, I was highly anticipating it. Sufficed to say, she not only delivered, she excelled!

Oooh I loved Sam, Annie & Trip. I adored each of them for different reasons. This novel was emotionally engaging. It took me a bit to get the feel for each character and remember whose POV I was reading from. Once I really became invested in the story and started to get a feel for each of them, I was hooked. There's so many emotional ups and downs - Trip & Vi, the boys & their mom, Annie & her mom, Annie & Jayse, Vi & her douche fiance, the boys & their dad's so called friend... I mean, the list goes on! The plot moves well. I wasn't bored. I didn't skip chapters or paragraphs. I was constantly rooting for Annie, Sam & Trip to move forward with their lives - whatever path that may be. The first half of the novel seemed a little more spaced and smoother than the last half. I have to admit, I reached a point where the chapters were moving faster and everything seems summarized instead of mapped out completely. It wasn't really a negative thing. It was just different. Not really rushed but it felt like time didn't really matter anymore. It was discussing things in past tense. Then, eventually, it hit a point where we were back to the present and moving forward at more of set pace. Again, it wasn't a negative thing. Just felt completely different than the first and last halves of the books. Ha. So, the ending! Loved it. When I reached the end, I was sad to let the characters go but happy to see how their lives were mapping out. :) Definitely a full 4 stars for me!
