WHY I READ IT
Love this author and knew it would be a great read.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
A single father, Benton is learning to live with the loss of his wife and a new baby.
Gabby has a dark past that she fights every day.
When the two get together, one of them just wants to move forward and the other just wants to forget. Sometimes forgetting isn’t as easy as it sounds, though. Benton will do anything he can to help Gabby, even if it means putting everything he’s worked for on the line.
Will she recognize his efforts before it’s too late or are they both a little too crazy to make it work?
*Stand alone full length novel. This story is a spin off of characters from M. Dauphin’s best selling novel Just GO*
This is the first novel I have read by M. Dauphin without the help of Frost. I always knew I would love them separately, but I didn’t know how much. Dauphin nailed me to the floor emotionally with this book. She is not afraid to let a reader bleed out to get to the sweet spot and I love that about her. CRAZY is a story about love, loss, and the pursuit of happiness.
Gabby- This girl intrigued me from the beginning. While some may shy away from her antics at the beginning I hope everyone gives her a chance to let you see who she is deep down inside. She is a complicated and sad character, but she is also tough and loyal.
Benton- Can we say hot dad alert?! That is right he is not only fit and tattooed…he is also a proud daddy. A daddy of any little girl’s dreams. He also has a sad past, but unlike Gabby, his seems to be raw and exposed. He has certainly loved and lost in this book, but he is the type to rise above and live life to the fullest. He will stop at nothing to tame Gabby, but will he be enough?
This book is meant to be a spin-off of another book, but I haven’t read it and I did more than fine keeping up with the secondary characters. That is the gold of a wonderful author, they make it easy to start wherever in the series and make you feel good and in the loop no matter what.
