But he’s no stranger—they’ve known each other since high school. Plus, he’s only around for the summer, he’s still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men’s magazine with titles like ‘Should You Bang the Boss’s Daughter? A Flowchart’ and ‘Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide.’
He’s not the man of her dreams, and she’s not about to abandon everything she’s worked so hard for just for a little fun. Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and wears panty-melting glasses.
I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.
We’ve all read a book like Some Sort Of Crazy at one point or another. I mean, the plot itself isn’t really something unique, you know. However, there is something about the way Ms. Harlow writes her stories. Ever since I read her Frenched series, I already knew I’d enjoy every one of her books. This series proves me right. Some Sort Of Happy was a great, entertaining read. I have to say, though, that I loved this second book more.
The thing is, it’s not all just about the book at all. Many of us are like Natalie. We work hard to achieve our idea of perfect. We focus too much on making the dream a reality. We don’t always notice that the dream has changed. In Natalie’s case, her seemingly perfect life wasn’t perfect at all and that what she thought she wanted has already changed. We usually overlook the most beautiful little things because we get lost looking at the big picture. I think this is why I loved this book. There was a deeper moral story in it than just being about romance and all that.
If you haven’t read the first book in this series, that’s fine. You will still definitely enjoy this book because Some Sort Of Crazy is a standalone. However, I strongly encourage you to check out the other book as well as Ms. Harlow’s other books in general. You’ll find yourself having quite an experience
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not reading good books, she gets her kicks from TV series like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex, Deadwood, Mad Men, and Downtown Abbey (although she wishes it were more HBO and less PBS).
Melanie is the author of the FRENCHED contemporary romance series (FRENCHED, YANKED, FORKED, FLOORED) and the sexy historical series SPEAK EASY (SPEAK EASY, SPEAK LOW), set in the 1920s.
She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
