Celebrities hold zero interest for photographer Jo Wilder. That's a problem, since snapping pics of the stars is how the pretty paparazza pays the rent. So when Jo attempts to catch a money shot atop the broad shoulders of a helpful bystander, the only thing she notices about the stranger she straddles is that he's seriously hot. Only later does Jo learn that he's also Micah Sinclair--one of rock's notorious bad boys...
Soon Jo is on the verge of getting fired for missing a Micah Sinclair exclusive. Until she's suddenly being pursued by the heartthrob himself. But how can she be sure the musician's mind-blowing kisses are the real deal? Her colleagues claim he's a media whore, gambling on some free PR. But something has Jo hoping Micah's feeling the same powerful pull that she does. A pull so strong, she can't resist becoming his latest love, even if it means she might become the media's latest victim . . .
Josie Wilder is not cut out to work for the paparazzi. Her boss is an ass that skews anything she submits and she’s not vicious enough to get the good dirt on people. She takes amazing photographs but according to her boss that’s nothing without a quote to go with it. She’d love to quit but she needs her health benefits because she’s has diabetes.
Micah Sinclair is a rock star who loves the press. No one ever really gets dirt on him because he’s always so open and transparent. He’s had “girlfriends” in the past but the word is that he always lets them go.
When Jo and Micah meet it’s pretty great but there’s constantly miscommunication. Jo thinks that Micah only invites her places so that she can take pictures. Micah knows that Jo is a paparazza so therefore always invites her to bring her camera along – anything to get the girl there. Because of this misunderstanding it takes them a while to get close but when they do break through it’s really good. Unfortunately Jo’s job and boss might get in the way of their happily ever after.
A Crazy Kind of Love was a cute book. I hadn’t read the first book in the series but didn’t necessarily feel like I needed to in order to read this one. Sure, it includes characters from the previous book that play a large part in this book but the author did a great job of incorporating them and I think this book can easily stand on its own.
I really liked both Micah and Jo in this story and of course the secondary characters, Eden, Adam, Zion and Adrianna were excellent as well. In fact, I might have liked the secondary characters better. The romance between Micah and Jo faltered a little for me. The misunderstanding between Micah and Jo lasted too long for my liking and when they finally got together, I didn’t feel the pull between them as strongly as I wanted to. In the ending it was a satisfying, fun read, but not too deep.
