What happens when fate brings two people together with unresolved pain, a visceral magnetic attraction to each other, undeniable love, and forces are at work, determined to lock them to issues from their past?

Brook and Isaac take us on a fascinating journey to far-away places as the answer to this question unfolds. Now that the murder of Brook’s husband has been solved, ending one chapter in her life’s story, she makes a decision to change her career path to courageously pursue a life with Isaac, who remains both mysterious and complex. But another mystery haunts this relationship, and soon betrayal raises its ugly head once again, taking Brook on a downward spiral. But Isaac is determined not to lose her and what emerges on the other side of pain is unexpected.

A short while ago I read and reviewed an incredible book called A Brush with Fate which is a passionate, romantic suspense novel that thrilled as well as charmed me for many hours. Upon finishing A Brush with Fate, I knew that I would have to read book two in the series as I was hooked not only on the plot but also the author’s phenomenal literature! That is why I am so excited to be reviewing the second book in the series called Crazy Love for you readers today, and I hope you enjoy learning more about the book and all the incredible things that it holds.

Crazy Love is a book I was desperate to get my hands on and when I did I found straight away that the author Sila Long had once again developed her story fast and as well as this she reunited me with the protagonists of the novel quickly which in turn made me feel as if I was ‘home again’. As I began to read Crazy Love, I was instantly captivated with the fast-paced narrative and enthralling literature, and I have to admit being reunited with the protagonists was great because I am invested in their story and am excited, although a little bit anxious, to read where their story will go! Usually, I never am this invested in a character(s) but Long’s phenomenal characterization and ability to build her plot quickly made me invested and so I was excited to be reunited with their story once again.

For those of you that have not read my review of A Brush with Fate and do not know about the plot, I will refresh your memory quickly. A Brush with Fate will introduce the reader to the female protagonist, Brook Jacobson, a woman who has had a tough time lately thanks to the unexpected death and murder of her beloved husband. Brook is a woman who although struggling, is determined to overcome her grief and when she meets Isaac Coles she starts to do just that. Isaac is a handsome film star who is equally interested in Brook and together they start a relationship but it is more complicated than the average relationship. The premise of book one A Brush with Fate is just this, it is the exploration of a new and somewhat challenged relationship and in book two Crazy Love the reader will once again be reunited with Brook and Isaac on their journey to happiness.

Crazy Love will take its readers on an incredible journey all over the world and will follow Brook and Isaac as they try to build on their relationship and make it the best relationship possible. Brook finally has some closure because her husband’s murder has finally been solved and so she is now able to move on with her life and she starts by changing her career so she can be closer to Isaac. All seems perfect for a while but soon Brook and Isaac’s relationship will be tested once again when a betrayal haunts their relationship. What happens next is truly shocking but thrilling and I hope you lovely readers have a read of Crazy Love so you know what I am talking about!

The story of Crazy Love is one that I would define as a guilty pleasure, it is the type of book that will be perfect for women (and men if they love romance/mystery novels) to pick up and get lost in for the afternoon. The easy to read language combined with the thrilling components and the shocking secrets that will excite readers, ensure that readers will be entertained and turning the pages with haste from beginning to end… I know I was! And this is all thanks to the talented author Sila Long.

Sila Long is a fantastic author and I loved many attributes about her literature; however, I admit that what I enjoyed the most was her ability to write such a convincing romance between Brook and Isaac. The romance and the chemistry between the two were thrilling to read, and their dynamic personalities lit up the pages throughout Crazy Love and had me charmed, shocked and left wanting more from start to finish. If you are a reader who loves to read a romance; the kind that takes you on an emotional roller coaster, one that will evoke many feelings in you and will challenge your perceptions of love then Crazy Love is definitely for you. This is because Crazy Love is not your traditional romance, it is instead a unique but stellar one that will provoke you in so many ways and those kind of novels, in my opinion, are the best.

What I also adored about Crazy Love was the author’s attention to her characters and her story. What I mean by this is that Long took her time with her characters and her story, being careful to develop them at the perfect pace. I hate reading a novel that rushes the development of either the story or characters, so the fact that Long was so careful to take her time and develop the story and characters organically show us that she really does appreciate not only literature but the reader’s experience, and that to me is beautiful.

Sila Long is an author who I believe will be a big hit sometime soon and I genuinely mean this. There are a lot of authors out there today, and many of those write romance but the genre is awash with generic, cliché romances but Crazy Love is far from this and is, in fact, a refreshing twist on romance. The unique story combined with the many poignant and thrilling themes make Crazy Love a stellar romance novel that will stand out from a crowded genre.

Overall Crazy Love is a sensational novel by a very talented author – one that you must all watch! So I, of course, have to award the stellar book five stars! So please, if you are looking for a romance with a twist that combines classical romance themes with unique and thrilling ones, then you will adore Crazy Love!
