Cathy/The Crazy Bookworm
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of romance novels. After reading the premise for this book I couldn't wait to start reading it. I loved 'Crazy for you'. It is far from a typical romance book, Crazy for You offered so much more. The book takes place in the 80's in a world of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Roxanne meets starving musician Frank Garret and they both are immediately taken by each other. The passion that these two share for each other radiates off the pages. Roxanne has become one ...more

I was totally thrilled to win this book as a Goodreads giveaway! I already had it on my Kindle wish list to purchase in the future & had just purchased Incredible Dreams the previous week on my Kindle. So, on with the review! At first thought the title caught my attention because it took me back to 1987, my senior year of high school. I worked in a movie theatre that had one of those mini recording studios, & a girlfriend & I did a recording of the song "Crazy For You" by Madonna. We ...more

Very predictable with little character development and a disjointed plot. Mediocre writing at best; I often wondered if the book had any kind of editing or even proofreading before release. This is one of the worst books I've ever read.

I read this book because it was based in Tampa and because it was free @ amazon. Although it was a little confusing I could not put it down. It has it ups and downs but overall I liked it,

I read romance/chick lit from time to time as pure escapism. One of the reasons is because they are so light (and alike) that when the book is over, I don't feel bad because I was never engaged in the characters or story, and remembering their names isn't important - change them and a few minor details and it's the last book, or the next one. I thought I was getting that when I bought this book.

Crazy for you was NOT like that at all. I admit, it took me a long time to get into the book because u

***I received this ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

Ok where to start with this...this was a very hard book to get through. The way the story is told with mostly dialogue and inner dialogue made it very hard for me to stay interested. The plot was not well thought out or even believable. I get that this is fiction but it still has to have a realistic plot. Roxanne manages to write books, covert them to screen plays, has her son, and wins best actress awards

3.5 stars. Since this book was free on Kindle, I was not expecting too much. I like it though some parts were cyclic… They have such a complicated relationship. Roxanne & Frank love each other with passion but I also like the part when they plotted revenge against each other. Initially, I’m not sure what the hell is she thinking when she walked away and hid from Frank when she got pregnant. But I liked how it was explained why she did that. The part about her real plan for the “honeymoon” ma ...more

I gave this book 1 star not because I didn't find the book interesting because it was definitely interesting. But the book was all over the place, it went from 3rd person to the characters first person. When I say characters I mean all the characters in this book had a point of view. It was a very odd read to say the least. I think the story could have been told in a more edited storyline if that makes any sense? It felt like I was in this soap opera watching individual sketches versus reading a ...more

Good read

This book was well written in the beginning and I actually understood the back and forth but the ending was a complete disappointment, it felt rushed and incomplete.

UPDATE: I had to change my rating on this one from 4 stars to 3 stars. After reading "Promises to Keep" and seeing how much that book moved me, I realized that this book wasn't as good as I originally thought. I am changing my rating to reflect how I feel about it was ok. An easy read. Nothing spectacular. Read "Promises to keep" first!!

A very easy, easy light read. Kept me entertained and it went quickly. Total chick book. There is a follow-up to this book, not sure I will read it or n

arrrgh I just read the book and hate it..because it's feel like the plot was forced. the story was good but can't attract me.

Not my favorite Sandra Edwards and really more like 2 1/2 stars. She mentions in the forward that this is one of her first books and it was a free Kindle download for me, so no complaints about not getting my money's worth on it. But it was just not a compelling story and the timeline was off enough to bother me. In four years someone basically accomplishes the impossible - writes books, turns them to screenplays, has a baby and wins 2 best actress oscars after her baby is born. Um, no. Rags to ...more

Oh man, what a colossal waste of time this book was. I find it hard to believe that it ever received a green light for publication. Not ONCE did I ever feel sympathy for any of the main characters. The writing was disjointed and seemed to be written by several different people. In fact, the only parts I found mildly enjoyable were the chapters wherein Frank, Candy, and Rich were working on Roxanne's book and the last 2 chapters. Thank heavens I didn't pay even a single cent for this book because ...more

Crazy for You is an apt name for the characters and the events that evolve in the story line. Roxanne and Frank are two of the most foolhardy I have ever came across in any book I have ever read. A lot of unnecessary heartache and pain they cause each other by misunderstandings and running away from fear and love. This is one involved story but totally worth the read and tears. They both take the long way around to finally end up together. I loved the twists and turns and not knowing whats going ...more

A love story but complicated a lot of misunderstandings and sometimes I was really pissed off at both of them him and her, she made two really bad decisions and then later he made some. I think the book needed some editing too much stuff about feelings and regret ... A little TOO much . The book held my attention and you just had to keep reading till the end. Also some things were a bit far-fetched can't say what without giving things away .... Well just one they don't put the writer of a book a ...more

I got this book on my Kindle because it was cheap and I didn't have high expectations. Needless to say, I was wrong! I started this book less than 24 hours ago and have already finished it. It is a GREAT book! I have not read anything like it before and it completely caught me off guard. It isn't your typical chick-lit love story where everything is always perfect. Honestly, there were a few times through out the book were I had tears in my eyes! It is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it ...more

Rock band member meets young widow. Rock band member becomes rock star. Young widow becomes rich author and movie star. She hides the birth of their baby from rock star. The rag to riches theme is over done. The story doesn't always hold together.
It was a free kindle book and I think that was the right price.
Jeanette Hornby
I really enjoyed the beginning of this novel,and found the story was interesting and compelling. The middle, however, was filled with the back story and slowed everything down. I did want to find out what happened so kept reading and wasn't disappointed. A good read.

OMG I loved this book!! I could not put it down!! I have never cried so much while reading a book and felt such heartache for the characters. It sucked me in so much it was as if it was actually happening to me...which thank goodness it wasn't. This is a MUST READ!

Although it was a great story line, would've loved if the author detailed it a bit more--felt as if the entire story was rushed which made it unrealistic. The 3 sentence epilogue disappointed me most of all.

I liked this book. I got into it farily quickly, and it kept my attention. I had a hard time putting it down. It's well written and even I didn't see the plot twist coming.

I couldn't put this down. It was borderline disturbing but in the end a great book. When I was finished I continued thinking about each character.

It definitely took some twists & turns I didn't see coming.
