I shot him with my paintball gun.
It was instant lust, the moment I caught sight of his tattoos, well-muscled body, and cocky grin. However, it was ass over tea kettle love the minute that sexy bastard brought me coffee and a bacon wrapped donut.
I fell hard, and I loved every minute of it.
I was lucky enough to grow up in Spartan, but I’d been contemplating a move to somewhere more populated. Lucky for me, Luke moved here and showed me how awesome it is to meet someone who’s crazy matches your own.
It’s not all unicorns and rainbows, when an unwanted blast from my past blows into town, and tries knocking me off my pedestal of awesomeness.
She didn’t shoot me. She missed by a good ten feet.
I fell in love with her the minute I caught sight of her cute little ass in a big pair of flowered granny panties. I tell her it was her pretty eyes, and gorgeous red hair, but really, it was the underwear.
Moving to Spartan was the best decision I’d ever made. I never thought I would meet the love of my life when I moved to this small town.
The people who live here take a bit of getting used to. They sometimes forget what appropriate clothing is, and will use any excuse to party.
I wish I could say that everything followed the fairy tale path, but people intrude, and bring the devil with them.
Embrace your crazy, and enjoy your time in our comical, but absurd little town. Welcome to Spartan!
I absolutely love quirky and eccentric characters and Ashley Lyn seems to have built a town of them in Love Crazy. This helped fill the book with humor and shenanigans that kept me giggling and grinning throughout the book. That being said, this book was insta-everything. Insta-lust, insta-love, insta-satisfaction….I felt like we just skimmed the surface of everything and that it was really all superficial. And the over-the-topness of the characters added to that feeling.
Alice is one of the quirky, eccentric citizens of Spartan. I really liked her and her joie de virve. And I definitely got a kick out of her moms. Luke is her new neighbor, having just moved to town and isn’t put off by her first impression. There are a ton of side characters in this as well. And you get to jump inside their heads a couple of times with different POVs. I wish that the characters had been fleshed out a little bit more and that more depth was put into Alice and Luke’s relationship. As I said, this was insta-everything. They meet and then they are HEA pages later.
All that being said, this was an entertaining read—the citizens of Spartan will definitely have you grinning if you like over-the-top quirkiness. I happen to, so I got a kick out of it. So that kept me engaged and interested enough to keep reading. In fact, I’d probably read about other characters from this town (Amy and Parker perhaps??). -Peace and love, Buxom J
"The writing was good, the pace was good, you never know what will happen next, but count on it happening was awesome." - JoAnna G
"The characters are quirky and full of personality and pazazz. I will say if lived in Spartan; I think life there would be a hoot." - Sheila'S Book Corner
