Crazy Stupid Obsession: A Bad Boy Romance Novel
Now that's a name I wish I never had to hear again. In just one night he managed to turn my entire world upside down.
I'm determined to move past it. But life doesn't always cooperate, especially when my roommate is now shacking up with his best friend. If he thinks his boyish charm and crooked smile are enough to make me forget, he has another thing coming.
The heart is a fragile thing. I have no intention of putting mine back in the hands of a man hell bent on seeing how far it will bend before it finally breaks.

This book was amazing and can be read as a standalone even though it is the second in the series. Gavin doesn't do relationships. He is all about the next random women. However, that changes when he has one night with Harlee. After that one night he will try anything to get Harlee to give him a chance to prove that he can and is willing to have a relationship. Harlee also doesn’t do relationships. Because of events that happened in her childhood she can't really trust anyone. This is all until her one night with Gavin. After that she tries to give a relationship a try with Bryan. With Gavin trying everything to get Harlee to give him a chance, it can mean only one thing Trouble!!! Will Gavin win Harlee's love or will all the Trouble be too much? Melissa Toppen did an amazing job with this book. This book has many funny moment, as well as making you fall in love with her characters.
I must begin this review by telling you that I love everything Melissa Toppen writes. She's really an author to discover if you still haven't read any of her books yet. After finishing Crazy Stupid Love, the first book in this series, I knew I needed to read Gavin and Harlee’s story, because they were very present characters that needed their own book. After their one night stand, both of them aren’t the same; they’re obsessed with each other, but they try to deny it; Harlee by dating a "safe"guy and Gavin by sleeping with a long line of different girls. Let’s just say that their methods isn't very successful and sparks still fly when they're in each other proximity. I loved Gavin in the first book, but in this one I loved him even more. Despite all the hurdles he faced with Harlee I liked the way he was devoted to her after he finally acknowledges his real feelings for her. I had a little more difficulty to connect with Harlee, because I didn’t really agree with the way she acted toward the situation she was in. Her feelings for Gavin seemed incontestably genuine, but the way she couldn’t make her mind and stick with it with all the back and forth was a little difficult to make her completely loveable. She had a bitter childhood that made her struggles to blindly trust people and with the way their first encounter ended with Gavin ignoring her thereafter, it certainly didn't help her erase the doubts she had about a relationship with him. I still highly enjoyed their chemistry that was very palpable, and I couldn't help but feel that in spite of every obstacle in their way, they were meant to be together. Another thing I really appreciated about this novel was the interactions between this great group of friends. Gavin has a unique bond with Decklan and Paxton that goes beyond friendship and I absolutely loved their dynamic. Harlee also has an awesome and understandable friend in Kimber. It's great when secondary characters also has a voice in a book, and I got to see them a lot!! This read was packed with funny and sweet moments, but also scenes filled with passion, fierceness but also sadness. Melissa Toppen has achieved with this new novel to present us a beautiful romance filled with undeniable chemistry and love.
