A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe

crazy kind of loveThe story focuses on Josie who is a paparazza for an online gossip magazine. I liked that this was from a different perspective. I definitely  haven’t read any books from the paparazza’s point-of-view.

This a romance novel. But it definitely feels a bit more hearty than just that. Or at least it did for me. I think that Josie’s story had a lot of depth. She definitely isn’t a one dimensional character. Sometimes in romance-y novels the tension feels forced, it does not in this case. The nature of Jo’s job (paparazza) and her romantic interest, Micah, who happens to be a celebrity feels natural and has inherent tension to it.

I didn’t know that this is the second in a series until after I finished the book. Obviously I didn’t read the previous book, and I don’t think I missed out. I definitely could follow along with the story. I don’t think you need to read the first one to enjoy this book. (Although I definitely want to go back and read the first one!)

I really enjoyed this book. I would totally recommend this if you are a looking for a romance-y read with a little depth. I am being purposefully vague on the details of the story because I don’t want to spoil it for you. The story is engaging and interesting. Although you kinda sorta know how it is going to end (as you do in a romance-y type story) it is a fun ride to the end of the story.

I rated this book 4/5 stars on Goodreads.

Full disclosure: I received this eARC from NetGalley for a fair and honest review. (Thanks NetGalley and Kensington Publishing!)
