Crazy Stupid Love by KL Grayson

Title: Crazy Stupid Love

A Dirty Dicks Standalone Novel
Author: K.L. Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 20, 2018


There’s a special place in hell for a man like
me—a man who shamelessly sleeps with his best friend’s little sister, knowing
he’ll never be what she needs. A man who takes because the only thing he has to
offer in return is a broken past that’s destined to destroy his future.

I was the kid who grew up on the wrong side of
the tracks with shit parents and clothes that had been handed down one too many
times. I stole to feed my sister, fought to protect her, and I’ll always be the
guy your parents don’t want you to bring home.

So yeah, that’s me. Lincoln Bennett. Adley
Allen’s walk on the wild side. Her dirty little secret. And I’m okay with
that—ninety-nine percent of the time. Unfortunately today is in that one
percent when it doesn’t sit well with me. For some strange reason, I want to be
around to celebrate all of Adley’s successes. I want to be here when she gets
her first job and take her out to dinner after her first shift. I want to be
the one she depends on, the person she calls when she has a bad day. Or a great
day. Or any kind of day.

I want more than her body. I want her heart.
But men like me don’t get women like her.

At least not to keep.


4.5 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I absolutely love this series and could not wait for Adley and Lincoln’s book. We knew that they were together after reading the last book but I wanted so much more of them.    I wanted to know everything there was to know about Lincoln and see their relationship turn into something more.

Lincoln is Rhett’s best friend and has been warned by him to stay away from his little sister Adley.  And he did, until she walked into the bar one night and stole his heart.  One night between the two of them turned into many nights of being together.  But it was nothing more than just sex between the two of them.  Adley is still focusing on school and her career and Lincoln does not believe in love.  He has abandonment issues and given the abuse he suffered growing up, he does not believe that love exists.  While he cannot stay away from Adley he also believes that he is not good enough for her and should stay away.

At some point Adley wants more and Lincoln has come to realize that maybe he does too.  They have still managed to keep their relationship hidden, but now that they are both ready to take the next step will their family approve?  Can Lincoln truly get past his issues and give Adley what she needs and deserves.

I loved Lincoln.  He is a very broken man and rightfully so.  He managed to give away his heart without even knowing it.  What I loved is how easy is was for the two of them to be together.  Adley never for one minute believed that Lincoln was not good enough for her and she wanted to prove to him how amazing he really is.  He has a huge heart, is loving, sweet and caring and he deserves to be happy just as much as she does.  Adley is strong and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants, and she wants more from Lincoln.  They were perfect together.

I really loved this book, all though the beginning for me was a little repetitive when it came to the sex scenes.  But I was able to get past that especially when we got the the emotional part of this story.  Because there are moments that will melt your heart but also break it.  There was not a ton of drama but enough to make you feel.  And I felt it all with them.  I love the supporting characters and how much we get to see of them.  There is one relationship that I loved watching grow a little and become a little bit stronger.  I love all the characters and cannot wait for the next one.

Author Bio

K.L. Grayson resides in a small town outside of St. Louis,
MO.  She is entertained daily by her
extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes
in a man.  Her entire life rests in the
palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized
cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away
furiously on her computer.  She has a
love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy
endings…and not particularly in that order.

Tattered by Devney Perry

Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.

So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.

Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.

But for their daughter.

4 stars
Review by Lisa Kane

Thea Landry is tending bar when she engages in some harmless flirting with an out of towner. Flirting leads to a one night stand. Best sex ever. But they agreed no names and no phone numbers. Just one night. 

Almost seven years later, Logan Kendrick finds himself checking out a camp for a potential donation in Montana. He’s in a small bar, the Lark Cove Bar, when he spots Thea. The woman he never quit forgot. What is she doing here?

It had been over six years-nearly seven-since I’d spent the night with my hands wrapped up in that hair. Since I’d memorized that smile with I’d held Thea in my arms.

Years, and she looked exactly the same. 

Thea can’t believe her eyes when she sees Logan. The man she tried to find. The man she wanted to track down so she could tell him some life changing news. 

“Drink that,” she ordered. “We need to talk.”

But there’s a small interruption right before Thea gets a chance to talk to him. 

“Mommy, look.” A little hand tugged on my jeans. 

Oh boy…cat’s out of the bag now!

Thea has a daughter named Charlie. It seems Logan has a daughter named Charlie.  Logan is knocked on his butt. All these years and he never knew. Thea has been raising his child, by herself. 

Logan’s life consists of handling the family’s business and the non- profit division. He is swimming in money. Big time, old time, trust funds galore money. His life style of butlers and servants and luxury could not be more different from Thea’s world of scraping to get by. 

“He’s a lawyer in New York. He works for some fancy firm. He went to college and law school at Columbia. He’s thirty-two. Not married. And he doesn’t have other children, from what I can tell.  

Logan wants to get to know Charlie. He’s lost years with her, but he lives in New York, they live in Montana. They should just move so he can see her all the time. He can’t give up his business and move across country. 

Oh you poor, misguided man. 

The attraction is still there, but Thea is aware a woman like her would never fit into the world that Logan seems to live in-but Charlie is the important one. They just need to figure out how to Logan can get to know her, but more importantly, he better not be coming into her little girl’s life, only to leave again. 

I might have only become a dad four hours ago, but that didn’t’ mean I was going to walk away. Charlie was my daughter and I wanted to get to know her. 

Tattered has smoking hot moments between Thea and Logan. Not to mention the sweetest parts that include Charlie and her dad. But there’s some suspense here too. And lots of snobbery and pretentious asshats. 

I am new to Devney Perry’s writing. This is the second story I’ve read, but it won’t be the last.  

“It’s hard to believe this is really happening. “

I smiled. “Believe it. Always believe. “

He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”

“She’s yours.”

“Then that’s good enough.”

“I—really?” I blinked. He didn’t want to verify paternity? He just . . . trusted me?

He nodded. “Really.”

“I swear, I tried to find you, Logan. On my life, I swear it. But the hotel wouldn’t give me your name no matter how much I begged. And you paid cash for your drinks and never mentioned your last name. I tried, but I just . . . didn’t know where to start.”

“It’s not your fault. I believe you.”

The sincerity in his voice made my throat burn. Goddamn it. I was going to cry.

I’d worked so hard not to cry today. I’d fought to keep my emotions in check and my head from spinning out of control. But this was going to make me break.

I wanted so badly for Logan to believe that I hadn’t kept Charlie from him intentionally. The fact that a man like him would trust someone like me without proof meant more than he’d ever know.

“Thank you,” I choked out past the lump in my throat.

“So, um, is Charlie inside with your husband? Or boyfriend?”

The urge to cry disappeared and I barked out a laugh. “Smooth.”

He chuckled. “It’s been a long day for me. Give me a break, will you? This morning I was in New York, then I came to Montana for a business meeting and discovered a daughter. I’m off my game.”

We got a
little buzzed and when the lounge singer sang, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your
Face,” that was it for me. When I took her into my arms and danced with her, I
knew it was more than lust. I was totally fucking in love with the feisty,
green-eyed, chestnut-haired beauty from Idaho.
“Blake—” My
tiger’s voice cuts into my memories.
baby?” I take out my earbuds.
“Do you
want to take a walk?”
My gaze
shifts in her direction. She looks ravishing. Her toned limbs luminescent in
the moonlight, her dress gently blowing in the ocean breeze along with her up swept
hair. I stare at her exquisite face, aglow in the campfire, her green eyes
glittering like two stars that have fallen from the sky.
The first
time ever I saw her face . . . Yes, I thought the sun rose in
her eyes. And even before that I felt the earth move in my hand, the first time
I ever kissed her mouth.
The song
plays in my head. A sensation that I can’t put into words falls over me. It’s
like a fire that’s burning from the inside out, consuming every atom of my
being. A love so deep it hurts. I respond to her question.
“Baby, go
get your iPod.”
questioning me, she pivots and heads toward her backpack. While she’s riffling
for the device, I put out my cigar in the sand and search my library of songs.
It doesn’t take me long to find it.
She returns
to me quickly and sits down facing me.
“You want
to just hang out and listen to music?”
“Give me
your iPod.”
without questions, she hands it over. I quickly program it. I wrap the band
around her upper arm and then fasten mine around my bicep. I help her to her
feet and draw her close to me.
“Dance with
me, tiger,” I breathe against her neck, before putting the buds into our ears.
With love
in her eyes, she gazes up at me. A faint smile, that’s more wistful than
lustful, fixes on her kissable lips, as our song plays in her ears.
No more
I wrap my
arms around her, clutching her gorgeous ass, while she loops hers around my
neck and rests her head on my chest. Our bodies glued together. Heat to heat.
Organ to organ. Heartbeat to heartbeat.
Every sound
and worry in the world blocked out, we slow dance to the song that changed our
lives forever. The song we played at our third and final wedding. The one that
sealed our love forever. Taking one small step at a time as we sway, our feet
sink into the soft, warm sand.
Under the
Under the
If there’s
such a thing as Paradise, this is it.

and I’m not sure I’ll survive.

Review by Jen Skewes

WOW!!!  Where do I even start?  After reading Rising, and loving it, I could not wait for Reckoning.  We were left hanging in a big way and I needed to know what happened next.   What Eve found out at the end, left me in a state of shock and I needed to know what it all meant.  Hoping that maybe things were not as they seemed. 

This books starts off exactly where we left off.  Eve is away at school when she finds out tat Vince goes to the same school as her. But he is not the Vince that she met and spent a year getting to know.  There are things that she finds out about him that scare her but also make her furious. She wants nothing more than to forget him but unfortunately for her, Vince will not let that happen.  He let her go once and it not about to let her go again.  But with the world that he lives in, the constant obstacles, the way things appear to the rest of the world, is there any hope that these two can make it work?  You will have to read to find out. 

I loved Eve and Vincent in Rising but fell for them both even more this time around. Eve and Vincent have this undeniable connection, both physically and emotionally.  Form the moment she stepped into his life has felt it.  They have passion and an intensity to them that leaps off the pages.  Their love is pure and real and together you feel like they can get through anything. 

We see a different side of Vince in this story. He is still the sexy alpha male but he is also the bad boy that you love to hate.  While not one part of me ever hated him, you find out that he may do some questionable things. But beneath the alpha male bad boy, we still see that sweet and caring side of him.  The side that is in love with a girl that he has no business falling for. Bringing Eve into his world can cause so many problems for everyone, but his heart won’t let her go.

Eve’s character has really grown since the last book.  She is stronger but at the same time weak to Vincent’s love.  And that is what I love about the two of the them.  The passion that they have when they are together, how well they can read each other and understand one another.   It all just makes you feel everything that they feel and have together

From the moment I started this book I could not put it down.  Jessica Ruben has this ability to suck you in.  I devoured this book in a few hours.  Needing to know more about Vincent, who he was and what he was hiding.  But once you know the truth you are still waiting on pins and needles because you know at some point the other shoe is going to drop.  And when it does, once again you are left wondering how this will all work out.  Can it work out?

Jessica Ruben’s writing is flawless.  The drama and angst is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat.  My emotions were all over the place.  I wanted nothing more than for Eve and Vincent to be happy, while at the same time wanting to punch one or two people.  I loved every minute of this book and this fantastic series. I will be waiting not so patiently to see how this all ends.
