Took me away

This book was great! It really felt like you got taken along on the adventures with Dakota and Dominic! I felt myself cursing Dominic for being "slow" to realize what he really should be doing with his relationship with Dakota (MEN

I won this book from some contest or another and I can't even tell you how long ago. I apologize to the author for taking so long to read it. I'm trying to rectify that now by reading all of the books I've won or been sent.

Love is Crazy was a roller coaster ride! In the best way! There is a lot of wanderlust going on in this book and a couple who could not be more perfect for each other, if only they'd both realize it at the same time. I loved the idea of the world traveler finding someone so co

This was a good starter for a new series. It was interesting watching how the plot was going to unfold. While I loved the narration, I wish more was from Dominic's POV.

Heart-Rending & Spirit Soaring

Oh my Gosh .... I don’t even know where to start... I loved (I’m sure there is s a better word for how I feel - but it’s all that comes to mind at the moment) this story and the MC's, Dakota & Dominic.

The more I read the more I felt & the more I had to turn those pages. I embraced all the emotions this adventure doled out - the highs the lows and everything in between. My heart raced, my stomach clenched as both Dominic & Dakota fell in love, I sat a

This was my very first book by Abby Brooks and it is definitely not the last!
I loved this book. I loved the story, the characters, the setting and all the different kinds of love. I especially loved Dakota and her sisters.
The story, though quite predictable, is thoroughly enjoyable.
Loved, loved loved it.

Love the story.

I enjoyed the emotions that the main characters had to overcome in order to finally be together, especially Dominic. Heart warming!

Life hasn't been easy for Dakota & Dominic and it has shaped them into who they are today. They don't believe in HEA because that only happens in fairy tales and to other people. Dominic is a photographer who lives a nomadic life travelling the world and never staying in one place long enough to call anyplace home. Dakota has longed to travel all of her life but has never been able to leave the safety of the little town she calls home. Their families are not happy with the choices they have ...more

I really liked this book. The character Dakota was no nonsense and spunky. I like that kind of woman. A girl to tame a stubborn man. I wanted to see more of their adventures together. I think that was the only part missing.

This is such an amazing love story. I felt their love & their pain. It was also very realistic on the events and how their lives were. Definitely will be reading more of her books!

I've actually copied the following bit out of a previous review from another book of hers because it had all the same idiotic editing errors. Story wise, it wasn't too bad.

I'm hoping that she just messed up and put a draft version of this book out, which would be bad enough, because otherwise theres no reason for the editing issues. There are several times you turn the page and have to flip back to check if you've missed something... Why is that? Well, it seems to be because there is at leas

She has a forgiving soul

I really enjoyed this book. I'm the youngest of three sisters, so I understood the family dynamic! You did a good job with that! I was mad at Dominic near the end. I hate it when others think they is what's right for you without asking you. As the youngest of the family, you have to deal with that s lot! He redeemed himself, but he should be eternally grateful that she has a forgiving nature! Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

The Youngest is the First to Find Love (And Adventure)

Growing up in rural Ohio, Dakota sees more reasons to stay than to leave...until travel photographer Dominic walks into her bar carrying all her hopes and dreams on his fantastically broad shoulders. But Ohio, and the loved ones who live there, have a lot to say about that, and for that matter, Dom isn't sure about it, either. Steamy scenes are well-balanced with the love story.

Love is......

Love is crazy is a fun book to read. Dominic and Dakota are the perfect pair. They are wanderers at heart but Dominic has history with loss. He puts up walls and hopes to live life unscathed. It was thrilling, emotional and touching to read their journey. It was sexy, sweet, funny and sad. I swooned, cried and laughed. Its a good story. There were a few typos and grammatical issue but it didn't deter from the book. Its a fun summer read.
A simple, but really engrossing read. I enjoyed the quirks of the characters and the theme of following your passion even when it doesn't coincide with what the world says you should want. Both Dominic and Dakota were personable and I felt like they were both the kind of people I'd like to be friends with. Their struggles were realistic and relatable and made their ultimate success even better.

Not much of a story

As far as I am concerned this book could have been cut in half. There are too many repitious sex scenes and not much of a plot. I got so bored that about half way through I skipped to the end.

Felt like this story was missing something. It had the potential to rip my heart out and put it back together but for me it fell flat.

A quick read about love, with strong and intense love-making scenes. Sweet, yet provocative.

This book is a crazy whirlwind of a romance. As I read it, I felt like I was there experiencing it too. Great read. It's a HEA with no cliffhangers.

Love is crazy

This is the first book I've read by Abby Brooks. Definitely not the last. Laughed and cried. Really enjoyed the story.

Recommends it for: Young adults and adults, quick read HEA
Not the typical HEA. I like this story, a romance with a different take on life, and I do recommend it. The story would benefit from more time and details. It has enough problems to drop it to three stars: not enough character development for my taste; so many dropped words, prepositions, and grammar issues as to interfere with the storytelling. Needs a good editor. Still an enjoyable quick read, regardless of irritation factors.

Will they get their happy ever after?

The story of Dakota and Dominic is an amazing love story filled with steamy lover scenes and painful memories of their pasts. It will leave you hoping they can make it but wondering if they can. Abby Brooks is an amazing writer and I can't wait to read more of Herr books.
