This is Crazy (This Is Series #1) by Natasha Madison Release Blast with Review

 

 

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.
Add a heading (1)

 

Can I just say how much I adore Natasha Madison??? She continues to blow me away with her storytelling talent!!!! This is Crazy was one of those rare books that kept me up way past my bedtime to finish!

I fell in love immediately with Zara and Evan. The book opens with Zara expecting an engagement, but what she got was dumped!!! Of course, no other woman was involved, right? That doesn’t ring quite true when she sees her ex’s engagement picture on Instagram. With a couple of drinks in her system, she decides to show him she is completely over him. So, she tweets his hero, hockey phenom, Evan Richards, and asks him to help her crash “said ex’s wedding.” He’s intrigued and accepts. What starts as something casual turns into something more…maybe even a little crazy!!!!

For a book to be really fabulous to me, it has to have a great storyline and great characters. Madison exceeded my expectations in both areas!!!! I felt like I knew both Zara and Evan! Zara is beautiful and sassy, yet she has a heart of gold. Evan is an alpha male, yet he respects Zara! He protects her, but he doesn’t try to control her. They were perfect for one another.

In addition, Madison also created a great cast of secondary characters!!! I loved both Zara and Evan’s families!!!! Can I just mention that two of my favorite characters were Evan’s labs, Lilo and Stitch. I have two labs myself, and Madison really captures their fun and loving nature.

The storyline was paced perfectly. Yes, these two fall pretty quickly for each other, but I felt like Madison realistically captured their connection, and the title accurately describes how the two feel about each other.

There are challenges to their relationship. Her brothers are on opposing hockey teams and are pretty protective of their sister. She lives in New York, and he lives in Dallas, TX. His sister is pretty protective of him as well! Yet, I loved watching this couple fall madly and crazy in love with one another.

The icing on the cake was that we didn’t just get one epilogue but two. Madison sets us up quite nicely for the next book in the series. I can’t wait to get Zoe’s story!!!! If you love a great hockey romance with some steam and sweetness, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!!

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…
