Release Date: July 8
The premise of Crazy in Love intrigued me. I’m glad I gave this book a try. I think this is one of the first (only?) books I have read by author S.L. Scott and now I have a new author to add to my list of potential books to try!
Harrison and Tatum had a one-night stand. Harrison, jaded playboy though he is, really thought, for one magical moment, it could be something more. But then Tatum leaves and Harrison fails to call her. So when Tatum finds out that Harrison is moving to New York for awhile for his job, and will be in close contact with her best friend (currently married to Harrison’s best friend) well, she knows she has to try to put their night in the past once and for all. It’s easier said than done.
I think what intrigued me most about this book when I started reading it is that I didn’t warm up to Tatum immediately. She was sending some really weird, mixed signals to Harrison. I didn’t blame him for being confused. One moment she tells him she wants to try to start fresh and be friends, the next she is yelling at him for failing to call her. It was… well, it didn’t thrill me, I will put it that way.
But, and here’s the good part, Tatum matures. She starts taking a bigger interest in the company she works for, taking on new responsibilities so her best friend, currently pregnant, will have less on her plate. Tatum herself starts to realize that maybe she has done some self-sabotaging in the past. I was glad I didn’t have to work too hard to find ways to connect with Tatum as the story went on. I fully believe and endorse that female characters can be unlikeable but I admit, I like to find a way to connect with the characters I’m reading about. I was glad to find that connection in Tatum.
Harrison is a bit more stereotypical rich guy playboy but in the end, I liked how he shows Tatum he cares. It honestly wasn’t easy for either of these characters to let down their guard. Despite having close friends as an easy connection, Tatum and Harrison have a bit of a frenemies feel in the beginning. Things get complicated with the unplanned pregnancy however. It seems like their relationship is about to go south permanently.
Crazy in Love is satisfying. I really like the book cover and fortunately, I ended up liking the story. This story features characters from what I am assuming are past books but I didn’t have a difficult time at all in jumping into Tatum and Harrison’s story. This book is worth a try!
