Doug & Sophie are a part of the same group of friends, in fact Sophie’s best friend Bryson and Doug’s best friend Hart are married to each other. Over the past few years there have been many occasions where their paths cross. Doug has been interested in Sophie ever since they first met but unfortunately he is way over the top in his expressions of infatuation. She just thinks he is one big douche canoe.

When Doug turns up on Sophie’s doorstep in need of a place to stay she almost laughs in hi

We met Doug and Sophie in The Dance when their best friends Hart and Bryson got together. And for five years they have been in the same social circle driving each other crazy and exhibiting some serious sexual tension. They taunt, tease, and pretend like they don't like each other. But at the same time, they have their place in their group and it is by default with the other.

Sophie is smart, successful, sassy, stubborn, and sassy. She is independent, closed off, and thrives on control. She prese

Alison Bailey is known for her heartbreaking romance reads and for creating some of the best book boyfriends out there. This time around she’s written a rom-com, and I absolutely loved it!!

With so many laugh-out-loud moments, swoony sexy times, she has another hit for you to fall in love with.

We met Doug and Sophie in The Dance, and I couldn’t wait for them to get their own story. I knew it would be explosive!

Alison G. Bailey’s done it again! And this time she's taken Contemporary Romance by storm and made it her b&*%^! Bailey knocked this book so far out of the park, she hit a grand slam with Sophie and Doug.

Crazy Sexy Love was all kinds of awesome sauce.

S & D rocked my socks with their witty banter, laugh out loud conversations, pursuit, awkward and amusing antics, sexual tension, and what the f&*% moments. This duo was exactly what I didn't know I neede

Another 5☆ read from Ms. Bailey!

“Can I finger you on the drive home?” Sophie’s face contorted as if I’d grown another head and I’m not talking about the one in my pants."

This quote is so much Sophie and Doug...
Doug makes jokes like an overgrown adolescent, and Sophie calls him on his crap.
But I think I'm getting a little ahead of myself here...
Crazy Sexy Love is Alison Bailey's first rom com and let me tell you, this was a slam dunk debut in this sub-genre! You know it's a winner when you're s

I love Doug and Sophie's story in Crazy Sexy Love because their relationship dynamics had me laughing through out the book! Navigating a not-so-romantic romance with tons of innuendo, flirting, fighting and tenderness made this book a beautiful summer read. Thank you Alison for such a brilliant and entertaining story!

“You make me so happy, Soph.”


Sophie and Doug share the same circle of friends and with the marriage of their best friends, they have more contact. The big but in this equation is that they do not stand each other. Of course the sexual attraction is great, obvious that they fantasize with each other, he is incredibly handsome and with a wonderful body and she is strong, speaks what she thinks without caring about the consequences. Too bad they are so different.

Doug and Sophie have been part of the same group of friends for years. Now that their respective best friends are married, they are spending a lot more time together, something Doug doesn’t mind at all but Sophie finds frustrating.

Doug is the kind of guy that doesn’t take anything seriously, and loves all kind of antics. Sophie knows herself and what she wants, and though she thinks a turn with Doug would be fun, it would be too messy since they wouldn’t be able to avoid each other af

Crazy Sexy Love was a fun and entertaining story.

Sophie and Doug’s relationship was interesting and had me laughing on many occasions. But I have to say that by the end of the book I really didn’t like Sophie that much anymore. She worked my last nerve. Which made her connection to Doug hard to believe. As for Doug...I absolutely LOVED him and he totally saved this book for me. That and

Great book! Great story! So awesome to hear more from Hart and Bryson a bit too!! But this story was about their friends Doug and Sophie! Doug had me laughing out loud! HARD!! Brilliant...and so stupid fun! My only wish is they had more time together, in love, but it is a great read. Sophia is a loveable, strong, character and I hope we haven’t heard the last of this gang! So awesome to read this author again!!

Do you know the feeling of the sweet summer breeze that pinches your skin on summer nights? Those summer nights where your brain seems to be emptied and lightened by thoughts that take flight slowly, losing them among the ocean waves.
Those moments when you are completely relaxed, lying on a beach in the moonlight. Without any nightmares, without any sufferings, without any worries. There’s just you. Your hair blowing in the wind, your gaze at the sky, the hands of your watch ready to stop their

It's been ages since I picked up one of Alison's books despite having really enjoyed them in the past. When I learned she was writing a rom com, I knew I had to give it a try. I'm so accustomed to more emotional reads from her, but I couldn't wait to see what she'd do with something lighter and sexier. Crazy Sexy Love was a fun little romp. 

Though I didn't read The Dance, the book where Sophie and Doug were introduced in the midst of their friend

Characters: I love both Sophie and Doug. I thought he was an a** and could never get serious, but that was just a facade. He just wants to make her laugh, get her attention or annoy her - whichever it is he’d always get a rise out of her. But it has never been a secret that he got the hots for her.

Sophie, on the other hand, is a complex character. She has her baggage with her. She didn’t trust especially. And there was no way she was giving her heart to a man who

Crazy Sexy Love is a followup novel to The Dance. While you meet Sophie and Doug in that book, it is not necessary for you to read it to fully appreciate their love story. In fact, I started this book and thought maybe I needed some backstory to to their crazy banter and wacky relationship, so I stopped reading and went back and read The Dance. So, I can say with certainty that while you might enjoy having the whole story before reading Crazy Sexy Love, you don't need to read The Dance to get a ...more

I LOVE this side of Alison G Bailey! And she picked the perfect couple to write a romcom about....Doug and Sophie.
If you read The Dance, then you are familiar with these two. She's the sassy Italian you never forget and he's the lovable pain in the butt that you can't get out of your head.
You thought guys has commitment issues? Then you haven't met Sophie! She's a strong independent woman who isn't afraid to call a guy out and walk away before they even have the chance to explain). Her paren

This was a pleasant surprise. I know Alison for her heartfelt stories, but Crazy Sexy Love is a breath of fresh air from her.

While I laughed until my stomach hurt with Doug's shenanigans, I loved how strong and well centered Sophie was. She's an independent woman who for most people have her life put together, but behind the facade there are deep rooted insecurities that prevent her from taking a chance at love. But don't discount my Doug just yet, he is a man on a mission and the main target is

If you have, I bet you are just as excited as I was to read Crazy Sexy Love!

Alison you had me laughing most of the time. This was a great comedy romance if ever there was.
Sophie is an adorable and lovable character who thinks she's flawed. Doug is just as adorable and lovable as Sophie, and he is a child trapped in an adult but with a pinch of a carefree kind of attitude to brighten your day. These two started out as enemies, became friends and then read to find out what happens with these two.

I absolutely adore a book that makes me smile and that's exactly what Crazy Sexy Love did. Through almost the entire book my family continued to ask me what was so funny or what I was smiling about because it was just so so great from start to finish.

Doug cracked me up but he was serious too. He knew what he wanted (Sophie) and he wasn't afraid to go after her. I love that he didn't play games while he was pursuing her. And Sophie! Gah! She was incredible. Headstrong but soft around the edges. I
