Review: Crazy Stupid Love by K.L. Grayson

Posted on

There’s a special place in hell for a man like me—a man who shamelessly sleeps with his best friend’s little sister, knowing he’ll never be what she needs. A man who takes because the only thing he has to offer in return is a broken past that’s destined to destroy his future.

I was the kid who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks with shit parents and clothes that had been handed down one too many times. I stole to feed my sister, fought to protect her, and I’ll always be the guy your parents don’t want you to bring home.

So yeah, that’s me. Lincoln Bennett. Adley Allen’s walk on the wild side. Her dirty little secret. And I’m okay with that—ninety-nine percent of the time. Unfortunately today is in that one percent when it doesn’t sit well with me. For some strange reason, I want to be around to celebrate all of Adley’s successes. I want to be here when she gets her first job and take her out to dinner after her first shift. I want to be the one she depends on, the person she calls when she has a bad day. Or a great day. Or any kind of day.

I want more than her body. I want her heart. But men like me don’t get women like her.

At least not to keep.

My Review

“In my world, people cheat, steal, hit and lie. And the promise of love is nothing more than an empty declaration designed to bring down a person’s walls.”

“You were supposed to be off limits.”

“I’ve always been a man of control. I know when to bend and when to stand strong. I make my mind up about something, and I stick to it, no matter what.”

“You’re not broken, just bent. We’re all bent, Lincoln. Some of us worse than others, but being bent isn’t a bad thing.”

No one puts your heart through the ringer quite like K.L. Grayson. To flawless writing and an unforgettable romance, Crazy Stupid Love is sure to make your emotions run wild and have you rooting for a happily ever after…

Crazy Stupid Love follows the story of Lincoln and Adley. Lincoln is the guy that everyone warns you about. He’s broody. He’s sexy. He’s from the wrong side of the tracks and could break your hear with just one look. He’s got nothing to offer a woman, but when it comes to Adley, all bets are off… You see, Adley was supposed to be off limits. She was Lincoln’s best friends sister and despite how much Lincoln knew he should walk away, he couldn’t resist the pull. What was supposed to only be a night or two of passion, quickly turns into more. Lincoln may not know what to do with his feelings, but Adely makes him want more. She makes him want to take chances and celebrate all the good things in life. Their journey is crazy, hot and messy. Their story will give you hope and have you believing in happily ever afters.

Crazy Stupid Love is well written and completely captivating. The characters are real, flawed and perfectly imperfect. Lincoln is stubborn, protective and totally sexy. He’s got a big heart, but doesn’t let very many get in. His past skewed his outlook on love and it will take a strong person to break down his epic walls….Adley is smart, determined and loves with everything she has. She knows being with Lincoln is a huge risk and that her heart won’t come out of this unscathed. But, Lincoln is the kind of guy that just blows you away and knocks you off of your feet. He’s the kind of guy with forever potential if he would just open his eyes and take that leap…

Crazy Stupid Love is a wonderful read from beginning to end. This story will leave you unable to put it down and will have you tearing at the pages just to see how the story is going to end. It’s a story about love and friendship. A story of moving on and learning to forgive. It’s a story about taking chances and learning to make things right when you say all the wrong things. It’s a story that will have your emotions twisted up in the best possible way. It will tug at your heart. It will frustrate you. And in the end, it will leave you begging for more. I can’t get enough of this series and can not wait to see how this author will have me falling for next.
