After Luke was mesmerised by a captivating singer in the bar last night, he meets her again at a boxing gym.

I really liked both Andi and Luke, Andi a little bit more, she was the kind of female I love. She's all tatted up, fiesty, cocky, strong, protective. Luke is an alpha, but kind of phony cockiness, he's also alone and a

I have the worst book hangover today after reading this book.
Crazy Maybe was crazy good. It dragged me though the ringer with my emotions.
First of all, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was completely involved in this book.
It touches on some serious issues and goes places that I'm not sure I'd personally be brave enough to go as a writer.
From delicate topics like abuse and child molestation to the different set of rules and the lengths some people will go to to keep their political ca

Hands down fantastic! I literally did not put it down at all until I finished it. Each time I turned a page, I would learn something more about Andi - supremely talented, sexy, smart, strong woman. Then Luke, right from the beginning you knew what he wanted and how he was going to get it. At least that is what I thought until half way through the book. Yes, the story has several shockers through out. I can tell you I stopped many times to reread the shockers. Someone was adopted, someone is ridi ...more

This is getting my distinguished 1 star and DNF rating.

DNF at 25%

I mentioned I had issues with this book after the first 2 chapters in my updates. Those concerns did not get much better. The overlap was killing me.

However what made me stop this book is it's lack of ability to connect me to the characters and the scenes. I didn't feel like I was there, with Andi and Luke. I felt like I was uninvited guest who was being given a bland run down of what was going on.

At one point there's a party. B

Crazy Maybe completely captivated me from the first page to the last. Andi & Luke are both good souls with damaged hearts. Their attraction is immediate. Their willingness to let the other in, is not. Crazy Maybe had all the ingredients for a compelling, pull at your heart-strings, true love story. I want more of these characters. Their alternating POV's was a special treat. To get inside of Luke's head, to know what he is feeling, what he is thinking, completed the book. I can't wait to rea ...more

A.D. Justice did a great job of bringing the characters to life in the story. I enjoyed how Ms. Justice made the characters have natural character flaws. If you haven't read Crazy Maybe yet, you should!

Wow, it's just wow. First I fell in love with the cover then the blurb and I wanted to read it so badly.

It was nothing and everything what I've expected! I LOVED IT SO MUCH!

WOW!

I really didn't expect this. I didn't think this was going to be a book that got my heart racing at times. There was actually quite a lot of drama and suspense- but in a good way. I really wanted to know the outcome of everything. I honestly underestimated this book, I didn't think there would be so much detail on everything and I never expected to get a full background on everything that went on.

Honestly, this book didn't just cover the basics, it went further and gave you so much more than

Crazy Maybe is a great read! It features Andi, a young woman with demons from her childhood, but who also is strong and fiercely determined not to let her past come back to haunt her. She meets Luke, a powerful street fighter wanting to train to be a professional boxer, who instantly falls for her. Sparks fly between them and they become inseparable until secrets surface and threaten to ruin the present she’s worked so hard to maintain.

Crazy Maybe is the first novel I have read with this author and I was so impressed with her writing style and character development. I loved Andi, a strong, female lead. While she had secrets and her own traumatic past, she was not portrayed as the broken female who needed to be fixed. She meets Luke, a street fighter who has issues of his own, but the sparks fly when they come together. Both of them have trust issues that they have to work through, as well as secrets that will come out threaten ...more

Crazy Maybe by A. D. Justice. This is the story of Luke and Andi. It is written in the first person, which is a little bit different for me, but I liked it. It is easy to follow. The characters and story are well developed. Though, at times I did want to bang Luke up side the head and ask him what he was thinking? It is a terrific love story with a bit of suspense thrown in. Pick up a copy, you will not be disappointed.

I loved this story!! A.D. Justice knows how to deliver! It grabbed me right from the start! I loved the spunky, independent Andi and the drooled over hot as sin Luke! I couldn't read this book fast enough. The story line wasn't just about their attractions, but of life lessons learned, and forgotten. I recommend that you one click this book now! I am a huge A.D.

Sebastian is really being a pain today! I don’t know why he still insists on lecturing me like I’m a child. As a result, I’m feeling a bit rebellious and decided to pull out a book with a fighter in it. I pulled out Crazy Maybe by A. D. Justice and let me tell you… WOW! This book was not what I was expecting at all! I thought it would be more along the lines of Real or Extreme Love and I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I can't even begin to describe my feelings for this book. This book pulled me in from the beginning and it just kept getting better and better. You get both alternating POV's and it makes you feel connected with the characters throughout the whole story.

You have Andi who is a sexy, smart, talented, strong-willed and a totally vixen. She has blonde hair with pink streaks and has a full sleeve tattoo. She grew up in foster care with the loss of her parents at an early age. She has a dark past in

This is a stand alone, new adult romance with abuse. I would recommend this to readers who can appreciate a girl not giving up on life or love. I really enjoyed how Andi had finesse and was independent. The love she had for her adopted boxing family was beautiful. And the passion between Andi and Luke was very hot to say the least.

This story is about Andi Stone, a self sufficient, vigorous woman. She is strong partly due to her taking two boxers as her adopted family, Mack and Shane. But she did

If I’m honest, I find books need to speak to an audience. After reading ‘Crazy Maybe’ by A.D Justice, I am kind of speechless.

Characters like Andi, are why I read but also why I write. How do you describe a pivotal strong character that stands out? A.D Justice hit the hammer on the nail with the portrayal of such an emotionally charged and powerful narrative. Andi and Luke’s story reads more than just words on the page. It is powerful, the emotion is touching and the words are uncannily high-pow

This book was a pleasant surprise! I am not entirely sure what I was looking for when I started this book, but I got quite a treat. I assumed there would be more fighting/boxing thanks to the intro but honestly while it plays a role there isn’t near as much as I assumed. The chemistry between Luke & Andi was so real feeling and I loved that while it was instant, the author built up their characters relationship slowly before putting them in some of the insanely HOT sex scenes!

Andi had been let down by the foster care system and had been on her own at a young age. She was working at the gym with her 'dad' and 'brother', Mack and Shane, who had taken her under their wing and protected her.

She doesn't rely on anyone except herself. She has a heart of gold and a past filled with loss, hurt, pain and secrets. Luke is a man who is struggling to find himself.

I'm not sure if all these 5 star people and I read the same book. It must be a mistake because the book I read was nowhere near 5 stars. I believe this book had every cliche romance novel line ever written. From "his jet black hair that could make a woman beg to run her fingers through it" to "his cheekbones and jaw must have been carved from pure granite" to "he looks at me like he's a predator that's about to pounce and devour me whole." I mean, the first few pages just talks about his muscles ...more

I am simply amazed at how this book has touched me, on so many levels.

Andi is a strong independent woman, who endured a horrible life at young age, as she did through her teens years.

Luke, who had his goals on becoming a boxer, met Andi at the boxing club. They had an instant connection, which they would stubbornly not admit at first.

We've all got skeletons in our closet. Will you ever admit yours?
Classic ending to an amazing book!!

This is my first A.D. Justice book and I am now a fan. Andi is a great character, who is so easy to relate to, and Luke...oh, Luke. He is a young man every mother hopes their son becomes.

Andi’s past makes you cry, and makes you understand why she is so guarded and tough. When that past comes back to haunt her, she’ll need every friend she has to get her through it. Growing up in foster care, family isn’t something she can rely on.
