Happy Release Day
Melanie Harlow!
Some Sort of Crazy is LIVE!!!!

Genre: Contemporary Romance


When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house.

Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?

Then Miles Haas comes back to town.

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.

My Review

5 STARS- Melanie Harlow turns up the heat with this newest novel!
Some Sort of Crazy is all kinds of delicious!

“Every time I got dressed, I’d think, will this be what I’m wearing when I yes?”

So I kinda love this author—she never fails to deliver the kinds of books that you pick up and can never put down, so being able to read one of her books prior to release just makes me giddy!

“Sometimes a little chaos is a good thing.”

Some Sort of Crazy is the newest book (book 2) in the Happy Crazy Love series, and this book focuses on Natalie, Skylar’s sister. We first met Natalie in Some Sort of Happy, and to be honest I was quite excited to able to read her book. Natalie has been in a committed relationship with her boyfriend, whom I like to refer to as DB, but his actual name is Dan, LOL, for quite a while and she thinks, like most women would, that her relationship is on track for her happily ever after. Her boyfriend has told her that he loves her and that someday they will be married. She has the boyfriend, the successful business that she’s always wanted and worked very hard for, the house—complete with picket fence—now all she needs is the white dress, the ring and few babies to see all of her dreams come true. What Natalie has never really allowed herself to contemplate, though, was ‘what if?

“But I love to eat pie. Can I taste yours?”

Natalie has known Miles Haas for years, and they’ve been friends for just as long. Miles has literally made a career out of his sexual conquests, and he’s most definitely not the relationship type. Natalie has always had a bit of a crush on Miles, but she’s never really allowed herself to go there. She’s in a relationship after all, she has been since high school and she loves Dan, she sees a future there, it’s comfortable and safe and there are no risks. It’s what she wants for herself, that type of life. So when a psychic tells her that a stranger is going to appear and upend her life, she shakes it off and concludes that the idea is crazy and that this woman is a nut job. Those types of things just do not happen to Natalie, EVER!

“A week ago, my life had seemed right on track. What had gone wrong?”

Some Sort of Crazy is equal parts sexy and funny. Miles and Natalie’s sexual chemistry is intense and their connection strong. Their banter is not only entertaining as hell, but laugh out loud funny! Full on hilarious actually. When Miles reappears out of nowhere, to write a new story for his blog, and invites Natalie out for a drink to catch up, neither one is expecting to feel the way they did about each other.

“I always enjoyed being in a relationship, and I’d never felt stifled by it. It’s just that Miles was doing something to me.”

“I thought relationships were the worst idea ever, but if you were going to be in one, you should fucking be in it and not dick around. Especially on a girl like Natalie.”

I loved this book, it can be read as a standalone, it’s a full-length novel with an HEA. That being said, I do highly recommend reading Some Sort of Happy first, only because I loved it so much. You can read this book without having read the first, but it’s more enjoyable if you have read the first one. Melanie has a very real talent for creating stories that sweep you off your feet and take you away from reality for a few blissful hours. Her books are the kind that you can always venture into and never have any worries about being disappointed. She’s that author you can always feel totally safe with, she always delivers.

“How would you know if you could love someone forever?”

Some Sort of Crazy gives the feels, without being overwrought, sexy times that makes you blush, tingle and your heart race, and humour that’s addictive, well timed, sassy, and smart! If you haven’t yet read a Melanie Harlow, this is a fabulous place to start! This book is a great and I look forward to the next. I’m looking forward to not only revisiting Skylar, Sebastian, Miles, and Natalie, but also seeing what is coming down Jillian’s path next. Expertly written and addictive, Some Sort of Crazy is going to leave you feeling warm, fuzzy, and sated.

“Was it just make-believe, like all the games we used to play? I want you, she said. I trust you, she said. Give me everything, she said. That was my favorite – give me everything. I would. I would give her everything. Even if it was only make-believe.”

PS - Don’t be surprised when you find yourself craving warm cinnamon buns, dripping in glaze before, during, and after this fabulous book! ;)

“I want you so badly, I whispered. “I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want you.” 

“Trust me. I know the feeling.”

“She’s just magic. I wasn’t magic, but we were. I felt it too.”
