5 Stars for Justice This is book 1 in the Crazy series and al I can say is WOW! It’s written in dual character and I love that. Gives us insight into what each person is thinking. Andi Morgan is STRONG. Andi Morgan is a FIGHTER. Andi Morgan STANDS UP as a voice for those who can’t protect themselves. Andi loses both her parents in a car crash when she is just 6 years old. She’s placed in the home of a family member who then turns her over to the state. She ends up living in the home of a prominent politician and his family with several other foster children. She doesn’t let her situation define who she becomes. She is independent and centered. She has the love and support of the only ‘family she’s had for most of her adult life, Shane, who’s like a brother and Mac (Pop) who is essentially her father in every aspect. Andi works with Mac at his gym training potential boxers. She has a rule of no dating the trainees. But then, aren’t rules made for breaking? Lucas Woods feels like he’s a failure to his family. He’s had heartaches in his past and situations that have led to feeling he’s let everyone down. He shows up at Mac’s gym in a last effort to make a break in the competitive world of boxing. Once his eyes land on Andi however, he is done for. They don’t jump right into a full relationship but rather spend time together as friends and let it develop on its on. Both Andi and Luke are hiding secrets from one another. Some that could potentially threaten to destroy them. Of course, all secrets are revealed, even when we aren’t prepared for the fallout that comes from them. But Luke and Andi are committed to one another and even when it looks like the end has come for them, they persevere and become stronger. There’s always a bad guy or two aren’t there? This story is no different and the crimes they had committed made me want to reach inside my kindle and physically harm them myself. I actually laughed out loud at the fate they met, so very deserving. There is a message in this story: Protect those that can’t protect themselves. The last 2 paragraphs in this book sum it all up. They are taken from a song by Nickleback (one of my favorites I might add). If today was your last day, what would you do different? Crazy? Maybe……..

This book was AMAZING AND I LOVED IT. I had so many emotions with this book....At one point in this book I was crying so hard and had chill BUMPS and at another point I was so mad at certain characters I was ready to kick some major BUTT. I also felt like throwing my kindle across the room saying kindle meet wall but I didn't because I would have never been able to finish this book. Hahaha. It's a book you will not want to put DOWN. Everything about this book was great. The character was amazing. I love Luke Woods and Andi Morgan. A.D. Justice did it again with another amazing book. I love this book so much and I can't wait to read more books by this author. If you haven't read any of her books you are missing out. They are all amazing books and I'm dying for more.

I absolutely loved this book, this was my first A.D book and I guarantee it will not be the last. Andi is such a strong character (which was nice to see for a change) and Luke is the loveable boxer with a heart of gold - he may do a stupid thing but in the end he proves how much of a sweetheart he is. I cannot wait to read more from the amazing author

Crazy Maybe completely captivated me from the first page to the last. Andi & Luke are both good souls with damaged hearts. Their attraction is immediate. Their willingness to let the other in, is not. Crazy Maybe had all the ingredients for a compelling, pull at your heart-strings, true love story. I want more of these characters. Their alternating POV's was a special treat. To get inside of Luke's head, to know what he is feeling, what he is thinking, completed the book. I can't wait to read more from A.D. Justice. ~ A.M.

Both Andi Stone and Luke Woods had their fair share of problems before they met. He wants to be a pro boxer and she works at the gym where he goes to train. Once they meet, sparks ignite quickly. Although they are very much attracted to each other, they are mature about this and decide to let a relationship develop first, before jumping into bed. The story is told in dual POVs and written in a style very easy to understand. We have love and some very steamy sex scenes. Chemistry, angst, suspense, and drama abound. The secrets and action will have you guessing and the twists and turns will keep you glued to your seat, waiting to see what comes next. Andi and Luke are two flawed characters that you will fall in love with and be rooting for throughout the story. This is the first book I've read from this author, but it will definitely not be the last.

I am usually not a fan of he said/she said type books but it was important to the story that we know what each character was thinking and dialogue wasn’t an option.  I really got a kick out of this book.  I stay up late to finish.  I will admit that as an old fart I did have to look up some of the lyrics of the songs mentioned but other than that… This is supposedly the first in a series but this stands well on its own (no cliffhanger endings) you can be sure I will be checking out the next installment.

A great read.  I love alpha males and fighters are even hotter.  Shane and Andi are very hot together.   Thank you A.D. Justice and NetGalley for ARC.

There are so many reasons why I adore this story. This is a book about a fighter, a survivor and I’m not talking about Luke, the one who is trying to fight professionally. This is Andi’s story. Andi’s character is a testament to strength and the embodiment of courage. She lives in the positive and it isn’t until she is forced to face her demons that we even have a clue that her past holds such unfathomable secrets. I loved her voice. A.D. Justice wrote a character I could actually envision existing, one that I would want to be best friends with. Luke comes from a solid family and wants more than anything to fight professionally. When he happens upon Andi at the gym he must confront the heartbreak of his past that has left him untrusting of women and relationships. He messes up. A lot. The first half of the book focused on Andi and Luke, on their relationships with their families and each other. There are so many players in their story that it takes a while to introduce them, to really get to know them and understand how they fit into the bigger picture. The second half of the book seemed to fly. It was one intense moment after another. I couldn’t stop reading, I was desperate to know how these characters could possibly survive Andi’s past coming back to haunt them. Music is the ultimate expression of emotion and the music A.D. Justice chose to incorporate into the story transformed her words into an actual emotional experience. This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to applaud her for this beautiful story that caught me by surprise and made me a fan.

* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* I really enjoyed Crazy Maybe. It was a very thorough story and there was constantly something going on so it flowed really well and I was always wanting to keep going to see what happened next. I really, really liked Andi and Luke. They were both such well written characters and their personalities and attitudes fit perfectly together. There was never a moment where one out shined the other. The story goes between Andi’s POV and Luke’s POV and I love when authors do this, because I really like seeing both sides of the story. Instead of having to read through a bunch of chapters to get to the point of explaining what really happened, we get the answer almost immediately when the POV changes to the next character. I did find the story getting a bit drawn out with Andi and Luke’s constant monologues of professing their love for one another. It happened a lot and, for me, was just too redundant and overdone. Throughout the story there is an element of suspense. The reader is waiting for what is going to happen next with Andi’s situation. There is something lurking within the plot that we are constantly waiting to pop out. The author did a great job of bringing this part of the story together and the revelations of what happened with Andi and how the information is revealed. Crazy Maybe is a great love story with a lot of plot twists and turns and was very enjoyable. 3.5/4 stars

Luke and Andi make an adorable couple. I really didn't have a clue where this book was going when I started I thought it might be a fighter book, but it wasn't. It's about Andi finding her family and dealing with old wounds that come back around.Andi has had a rough life and so deserved a happily ever after.She is a caring sweetheart but also tough as nails. I loved all the sweet moments between Andi and Luke, after he got his crap together.I am ready for this to became a series with all of Andi's friends that are now her little family.This book has it all billionaire, fighters, singers, and some amazing karaoke performance.

It's hard for me to write this review because I have so much emotion going thru my head. I laughed cried and wanted to kill someone while reading this book. This book is an emotion roller coaster that I loved so much. I feel in love with Andi, Luke snd the whole family. I do believe in this world some people think they can get anyway with anything they want. I was so happy with the ending and would not have wanted it any other way. Can't wait to read more on all the characters in this book. This is a must read but be sure to have tissues you'll need them.

I was very happy to read another one of A.D. Justice's books for review, however this book is very different from Wicked Games. This one is more of a romance about two characters, Andi and Luke. You learn about each of them separately through their POV's and really understand both characters very well. I really like hearing both POV's and learning about what drives the other. It is a true testament about two people who look like they don't belong together, but quickly learn they are kindred spirits so to speak. I think the author did an amazing job of painting the picture of both Andi and Luke and you really see while they are both hurting about things that happened to them in the past, but find that looks can be deceiving and sometimes there really is a thing called "love at first sight." I definitely recommend this book to others. It is a really sweet story and at times, yes, Crazy Maybe!! My only downfall about the book and believe me, it is really a small downfall, is that it seemed a tiny bit slow at times. Again, I say it was a very small thing that didn't happen but only a couple times and is very easy to get past and fall back into an overall great story!! Overall, I give this book 4.75 AMAZEBALLS STARS!!! I received a copy of this book for a honest review. Review by Tabitha

Gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review. To me, a 5 star book means it made me feel something throughout the story…doesn’t matter if it was happy, sad, anger, etc. but, did it make me feel it. That is a definite yes for Crazy Maybe! I laughed, I got mad and yes, I even cried a bit. The characters amazed me at every turn. They are so complex, mature and level-headed and I absolutely love that in a story. Andy is strong and independent yet soft and vulnerable. She lost her parents at a young age and was basically tossed into hell after that. She came out of it a stronger person and who will do everything in her power to help those that are living the childhood she was forced to live, as well as all others in her life. Anything she can do to make someone else’s life better, whether it’s emotional support or even financial in some situations, she does it without thought or expectation of anything in return. Family is a very important focus in this story and you see it with Andi and Luke. I connected with Luke within the first few chapters of the book. He’s a strong alpha but he has such a sweet side for Andi it will bring tears to your eyes. He was raised in an environment where he was expected to follow in his father’s footsteps so when he chooses another career path, it causes hard feelings and judgements that causes their family bond to suffer. Luke finds a family in those he works with at the gym, including Andi. One other thing I enjoyed…I see a lot of books where the author publishes a playlist to go along with the story but, I’ll admit that I don’t usually check it out because I’m too busy reading . AD Justice did something a little different and I loved it. She ties her playlist into the story itself because the lyrics mean something to the story. Andi sometimes has trouble expressing her feelings so she relies on music to help with this and throughout the story, she uses music to help express her feelings. I thought that was a nice touch. I’m happy and surprised to say this book was so much more than I expected! I know the blurb is usually the hardest part of writing a book and, although the blurb for Crazy Maybe is excellent, this story has so much more depth to it…there’s no way possible to capture it all in just a few paragraphs…you just need to read it! It deals with some pretty touchy topics but I love the way it was written…and that ending…HELL YES!!!

Amazing! This really sucked me into the story.  Love Andi and Luke. Their chemistry  is amazingly sexy. Luke has alot of trust issues with being burned in his past he has walls around him. But what i love the most is the fact that he admit he was wrong and tried to fix it when he realized how he could lose Andi forever. Andi is strong and a fighter she had a rough life but didn't let it define her. Loved the guys Mack, Shane and Brandon. Andi's girls are amazing she is lucky to have such great friends. Now Luke's dad pissed me off! Oh how i wanted to slap that man for what he did. But Andi never backed down she fought for what was right. This was such an emotional book for me to read.  I loved Andi and shane's brother/sister relationship. How protective her feels about her and Mack dear Mack i loved for he loves and treats her like his own daughter. This book really makes you think. It makes you want to be strong and not to back down and to fight back. I am not that strong sometimes i wish i was. MUST READ THIS AMAZING BOOK!!!!!!!!

Why was this book on my TBR for so long? I was already a fan of Ms. Justice's Steel Security series, but Crazy Maybe blew me away. As a debut novel I was expecting a less concise storyline and characters. I was truly in awe by Andi. She maybe the strongest female character I have read in a very long time. Broken as she is by her past, she is strong, resilient, smart, passionate and loving. Even though her parents died when she was young, she has a wonderful support system in Mack, Shane and her girlfriends. Then into her life walks Luke. Luke is the kind of man most women dream of meeting. He and Andi are immediately attracted to each other; their chemistry is explosive. While she maybe strong, like everyone, she has insecurities that complicate her life. Relationships tend to bring out everyone's insecurities, it is no different for Luke and Andi. Insecurity coupled with the events from her past being made public knowledge, tend to throw the couple off course. In order to get their lives back on track, Luke and Andi have to take on a very powerful man. The backlash not only affects, the couple; but their friends and family. Ms. Justice's characters are well developed, even though they are flawed, but that is what makes the book engaging. The plot is paced well and the sexual tension is sizzling. The twist in the plot keep the reader guessing until the end. I'm sure there is more to the story and cannot wait until this author shares it. ~KHrdlicka

** 3 1/2 Stars ** I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review. Crazy Maybe has a lot of depth to it. There is, of course, the love story part, but there is also issues about child abuse and rape. I really liked how A.D. Justice showed that even though someone may go through something like Andi did, you don't have to let it define you. You can decide if you are going to over come what happened and make a better life for yourself. Andi has had a hard life. Her parents died when she was 6 years old and then she was tossed from foster home to foster home, until she ended up in the hell hole that was her last foster home. She's had to over come a lot and has had to do it alone since she was 16 years old. She's able to find some peace helping and protecting youth and helping boxers perfect their forms. She is an extremely giving person and never once thinks about herself. This may be her biggest fault. Then there is Luke, he is the hot wanna be boxer who she has an instant connection with. They both feel that they are meant to be, but some things from not only from Andi's past, but Luke's as well, may end up tearing them apart. Andi and Luke have many ups and downs throughout the story. They have a lot of obstacles to over come before they are able to find their happily ever after. Will Luke and Andi be able to survive Andi's past? Will they be able to finally find peace with each other after everything comes to past? A.D. Justice does a good job of connecting you to the characters. She keeps you sucked in, wondering what is going to happen next in the story. If your looking for a good love story with a little suspense, this a book for you.
