If I could describe this book in one word, it would be "kick-ass". Tatted and with punk personality, our heroine Kevan Landry is on a mission and that is to sign the coolest metal band known as "Manix Curse" as her first major entertainment marketing client. However, someone is ruining her chances and that is Mason Dillon-- CEO of Global Entertainment Marketing who happens to also pursue Manix Curse for the same project. Worse, he also happens to be the guy she had a one-night-stand with

I really enjoyed Beautiful Crazy. Kasey Lane creates a great story with interesting characters.

I loved Kevan. She’s girly, unique and tough. She’s also very good at what she does. It’s no wonder Mason can’t resist her. You’d think straight-laced Mason with his wealthy parents and Ivy League school would prejudge the tattooed, fits no mold Kevan but it’s the other way around. Mason must work hard to get through to her even though the sexual attraction is there from the beginning.

Kevan Landry never thought the sexiest more intense one night stand of her life would turn into a nightmare that could ruin her and her fledgling PR company…but it did. Now Kevan will have to put her libido on the shelf and pull up her big girl panties if she wants to save her company.

I had so much fun with this book! It hit the perfect mix for me with contemporary romance: a heroine who is intelligent and business savvy while also being vulnerable and kind, a true alpha male hero who is also considerate of other people and can have doubts of his own, an engaging story about a business rivalry and the music scene, and a hot, Hot, HOT and fun to read romance. I definitely recommend!

What a tremendous debut! This book is knock your socks off hot with heart. Kasey Lane holds her own with the big name stars of spicy romance, delivering a tale that will leave you breathless and turning pages like a mad man to find out what happens next. Lane's saucy prose is so beautiful written, it's a pleasure to read. She delivers the hero and heroine's personal thoughts through each of their unique points of view.

Kevan is a great character! She is tough, confident and yet is sweet with a girly side. I love books with strong female leads.
Kevan is struggling to save her small marketing firm and also keep her brother in rehab. She feels if she can sign this new up and coming band that it will turn everything around.

Kevan knows how to drive her man to distraction with the way she dresses, and I loved how Mason got all alpha, “How the eff am I supposed to get any business done tonight if I’m distracted by that tattoo and the hot body it’s drawn on?” Mason growled. The familiar low vibration instantly made her wet and wanting." I really loved this book, Mason and Kevan were so damn entertaining.

Beautiful Crazy is the first book in the 'Rock n' Ink' series, and unbelievably the debut novel of author Kasey Lane. I say unbelievably, because, it was amazingly good. Let me start by saying that I am not a heavy metal fan, I have one small tattoo, and I don't normally like to read books that are full of swear words. That said, this book included all those things, and yet I absolutely loved every minute of it.

The story is about Kevan Landry. She owns and runs a very small promotions business,

Beautiful Crazy contains some of my favorite things.... Music, tattoos, and sex. Who doesn't love those three things!? But there is so much more to this story than just that. Plus, who doesn't like sweaty metal heads with tattoos?

What I loved most about this book was the uniqueness of the characters. The rockabilly feel to it is what stood out the most for me. I have never read anything with a mix of business and rockabilly culture.

I thought I would never meet a girl as stubborn as me and then

Pretty freaking cool. I loved how the author worked song lyrics into the story to show how the characters were feeling. Specially when you can work a Chevell's song!

Karven was specially cool. I would love to been able dress like her.

Beautiful Crazy is by a newbie author Kasey Lane. The cover grabbed my attention first and I was snagged with the description. A sexy rocker chick and a hottie guy in a suit.. Yeah, Im going to give this one a whirl. Kevan’s fledgling business needs to sign this band. Mason needs to bring in new talent into the company he works for to keep his job as CEO.

What a debut novel, it was fantastic. I got so caught up in the story and Kevan is such a great female character to read. Kevan is feisty and feminine but not a woman to be messed with, she has a life it is complicated and she cannot be falling for sexy Mason. Mason is smooth,charming and everything you would want in a book boyfriend. Super impressed with this debut novel. Will most certainly be wanting to read more from this author.Final point the cover is gorgeous i love it so much.

"She never thought she'd find love in a suit & tie."

If I had to describe this book in two words, I would say : dirty and sweet.

I've never heard of this book or this new author before, but when I saw this pretty cover at the bookstore, I added it to my basket because it was just too gorgeous. Well, it's not just a beautiful packaging, the content was awesome too.

Beautiful Crazy is the first book in the Rock n Ink series by Kasey Lane. I was immediately drawn to this book by it's amazing cover, which is a perfect fit for this story line.

Kevan is a fabulous character. Kasey has done a really wonderful job of bringing her character to life. You can really envisage her character and her rockabilly style in your mind's eye. On top of that she is strong, feminine, unique and a bit vulnerable and battered by life.

Mason proves that appearances can be deceiving

There were parts of this that I really enjoyed, and there were parts that I thought were a little overwrought and dragged a bit.

I liked Kevan, although I am not sure I ever bought that she was as "broken" or "crazy" as she was portrayed to be, but I liked her. I thought her story was interesting, I liked her character and I believed in her. The relationship with her brother was also compelling and you were invested in the relationship and understo

Addicting and intense, Beautiful Crazy has rockers, ink, and heart.

This is a book not to be missed! Kevan and Mason are fighting for control of the same band, but the explosive energy between them endangers that possibility. So you have the beautiful tattooed Kevan, who is struggling to save her small, fledgling company, and Mason, the suit who is trying to remain in control of his large company. What happens when these two are forced together? Sparks, all the fireworks you can think of. I love

Holy hotness and angst!

Absolutely adored this book. The characters were real, the sex was hot, and the story line was fresh. I loved Kevan. She was an upstanding character with a whip-snap personality. And then there was Mason. Sweet God in heaven, was he delicious. Not to mention completely adoring.

I loved the way these characters interacted, their banter, the depths of their emotions for one another in he end... I stand by my word when I say that Kasey Lane's new name should seriously be Che

Beautiful Crazy is a fast paced and sexy romance. I enjoyed the alternating points of view throughout and the competitive banter between Kevan and Mason.  Kevan is a determined pinup rocker, which I find unique and engaging. Mason is a sexy CEO with a Texas drawl and when he says "Darlin" I just can't help but get all the feels.  The two may have come from different worlds, but their chemistry is intense.

Kevan is one of my favorite characters ever. I loved her style and her energy. She is one of those characters you think about for days after finishing the book. I thought about all the different outcomes for her and the different directions her character could have taken. Personally to me that is the mark of a great author. When a character seems so real and you want to be her best friend.

I absolutely devoured this book! This was a different take on a rock star book but I liked it. It's fun,fresh and fierce. I love a good competition book that ends with the characters falling in love.
Kevan is a strong determined woman who loves hard and fights for what she wants. She doesn't back down on many things. What I love about her is that she tough yet sweet at times. There is an instant connection between Mason and Kevan. They thought one night would be enough but boy were they wrong!
