This Is Crazy by Natasha Madison-Review Blast

From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This is...

Zara Stone 

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.

I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.

Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards

I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.

Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.

The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.

It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

This Is Crazy by Natasha Madison is a spin off from her Something So series but is absolutely a standalone. If you haven't read those books, you can dive in here without a problem-but I bet you'll want to go back and read all the books after reading this! This is a low drama story that just works. I read it in one sitting and it definitely left me smiling.

I really liked Zara. I have to say when it comes to hockey...I'm just like her. She was fun and sweet but also had some sass in her. She's the kind of girl I could see myself hanging out with and just having a fun time.

Oh Evan...Evan had me swooning. Seriously, from start to finish I just loved him. I was all in. I loved how he responded and reacted to Zara.

The chemistry between these two felt authentic. The way they first start talking had me laughing-because it's something I could totally see happening in real life. I love that we saw their relationship develop outside the bedroom as well. I was cheering them on the whole way.

The supporting cast of characters here were mostly fun. They definitely had me laughing-except for one of them. I just didn't love or understand one of Evan's family members, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.

This was a well written, low drama, sweet and fun book. I can't wait to see what this Author gives us next. I definitely enjoyed this title and would recommend it.

Sometimes it's just nice to read a book you enjoy without a lot of angst or overdramatic plot lines...this was that book.

I loved the initial "meeting" between Zara and Evan. I loved that it was tongue and cheek, and a little crazy, and never meant to be anything that went anywhere... until it was.

But, isn't that how life works? The things that seem huge sometimes aren't and the things that seem like they won't mean anything turn out to be the most important thing ever.

I loved this book and how it just let you enjoy the relationship, the build of it as they got to know one another, and the romance. I thought the end was a little predictable, but not so much so that it ruined it and, well, while I saw it coming, I could also see the situation working out that way, so I ignored it.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

About The Author:

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
