Crazy Stupid Love

Book 2, Blame it on New York - A fun, feel-good romance

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Are there written rules on how to find a soulmate? Or is it better to trust the hands of fate? A hilarious romance perfect for the fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin.

After enduring a string of dead-end relationships, Zoe Mathison has made a decision – to find a man who truly appreciates her. But this is turning out to be more complicated than she expected. Fed up of being surrounded by insufferably happy couples in love, her mission to find the perfect man starts to become an obsession.

Eric Morgan is pushed to his limits. Hopelessly in love with Zoe, who sees him as nothing more than a best friend to lean on, he can't bear seeing his hopes of romance crushed every time the sculpted pecs of a younger man comes along. But when a new girl appears on the scene, he is determined to prove that he can push his infatuation aside and move on. But is it as easy as it seems?

In the romantic and bustling city of New York, will Zoe and Eric's hilarious misadventures attract Cupid's arrow?

elements that didn’t quite fit the narrative, and the all tell no show writing, the story was a stru

I think most of us enjoy a good friends to lovers story, and the promise for this one was strong. We can all relate to Zoe’s desire to find a relationship with someone who appreciates her – and just how difficult that can be. And everyone has met (or heard of) an Eric, hopelessly in love with his friend, who doesn’t see him as anything more. So just what can he do to make that change, and if he does, will she ever be able to see him as something more?

So I am torn on this story – I wanted to find myself laughing and appreciating moments, cheering on Zoe and Eric, and finding moments where the city seems to push them together (You’ve Got Mail – anyone?). Unfortunately the dated feel of the story (Faxes, an MIT grad working as a videographer), the protracted and repeated refrains from nearly every character (and there are many) in the story, that surround their unreturned feelings and hopeful crushes.

Long and overused passages of internal dialogue that seemed only to tell readers the issues before proceeding to rehash the moments – without actually coming to any resolutions. Add to that a multitude of characters that assume the first book has been read, but never really presenting them with backstories until long after their introduction became confusing and overwhelming: a problem I rarely experience no matter where I enter a series. When you add those problems to a hero who spends more time navel-gazing and rehashing what was instead of deciding how to get where he wants to be, add a self-absorbed and self-obsessed heroine that never really seems to recognize her own part in her unhappiness and I was left with no one to care about. Sure, I tried: and there were moments that the promise of a budding relationship as it realigned were sparking, over the progress of the book, these moments were too infrequent and appeared too late to redeem the story overall. With little to no use of the city as a supporting character, several elements that didn’t quite fit the narrative, and the all tell no show writing, the story was a struggle to finish.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
