My former best friend...is now a hooker...

MICK
After a terrible breakup, the crazy notion hit me to look up my childhood friend. With half a country between us, I haven't seen Raven since the day my dad rushed in and saved me from the Sandy Hill Trailer Park. But I loved Raven as a boy, and now I need to find out if I could love her as a man. Only problem: her profession.

Well when we are first introduced to Mick I thought he was a total tosser!! As he broke up with his girlfriend of two years by telling her he doesn't care about her and he has been cheating the whole time. There are a tonne of ways to break it off with someone and that's not one in my opinion. He did however slowly win me back through the book.

Mick/Mickey grew up in a trailer park in Kansas but was saved by his rich father when he was 10yrs old. He now lives an affluent life

Favorite Quotes:

It didn’t help that this man had to be straight up handsome, too. Like Clark Kent handsome… He even had on dark frames, as if he really were trying to channel Clark Kent up in the front seat. Good thing I'd always been a Batman fan.

I had a feeling I was about to see the side of him that turned smart girls, like Sandra, stupid.

His blue eyes were sincere and kind, staring at me like I hung the moon in his eyes. He knew the worst about me and…still, he’d only ever looked at me with

I'll be honest here and say that this took me a while to review. I really wanted to like book so I decided to give this one a try but sadly I STILL DIDN'T like it.
I am sorry but it's just ridiculous! Former best friend he hasn't met for more than a decade and he suddenly just decides to barge into her life and sweep her off her feet?!
I couldn't 'come to terms' with the start of the book but somewhere along the way I sort of got into it but it wasn't worth gushing on about. Sorry!

Mick and Raven were neighbors when they were children. They were best friends and inseparable. Until one day, Mick had to move in with his dad. He lived far away from Raven and Raven was devastated when Mick left. Raven and Mick hadn’t seen nor heard from each other for more than a decade.

Mick just broke up with his girlfriend. He never loved her or anyone else. He has never forgotten Raven and he wants to see her again. Raven still lives in the same town and she hasn’t had a good life. Mick is

He had a better life but he never forgot his best friend from birth, whom he promised he would always protect. He hadn’t seen her in fifteen years and it was time to resolve that.

This was an enjoyable afternoon read! Crazy Sexy Notion is the story of Raven & Mick.

Fifteen years later, Mick travels from Maine to come save Raven, the same way he was rescued at age ten. He quickly learns that Raven is a prostitute with a daughter. Life has not been easy for her since Mick lef ...more

Loved it! I think Mickey is my new favorite Darlington BBF, next to Leo!

I’m not even sure how to go about describing this book or how exactly it made me feel! I’m kind of feeling like Raven and her dilemma with Mick~ “...if I ever actually saw Mickey again in my lifetime then I’d show him...I’d show him...Well...I still wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to show him.”

Crazy Sexy Notion is so different from Ms. Darlington’s previous books, but in a really good way! It’s funny and sexy and so freaki

This quick read by new to me author Sarah Darlington was a very enjoyable second chance/friends to lovers romance. The two once best friends Raven and Mickey grew up in the same harsh conditions and only had each other to rely on for the first 10 years of their lives. But then Mickey's father swooped in and saved him from that life. And in doing so, Mickey had to leave Raven behind. Years later they are reunited, but it's not the reunion either was expecting.

As much as I liked this story, I found myself with a few questions throughout the story that weren't answered, but that's because I'm detail-oriented person and like to have all the information lol.

Crazy Sexy Notion is the story of childhood friends, Raven and Mickey (Mick), who haven't seen each other since they were ten years old. After fifteen years apart, Mick and his brother Nick take a road trip so Mick can pretty much find out if she's the one for him. Once he arrives at her trailer, he immediately realizes he must save her from the life she's living with her daughter.

He takes Raven and Samantha, her daughter, back home with him and they begin to discover how much they've changed o

Sometimes you read a blurb and you get very curious about the story. This was one of those times!

This was my first official read of 2018, and I'm glad this year seems to be off to a great start!

I've been fortunate enough to be one of Sarah's betas for a few years now, so I was more than a little excited when she emailed me with a new book. I have to admit that I was a little trepidatious when I read the summary because of the 'hooker' aspect (and the negative connotations that might stem from that), but I can happily say that I thoroughly enjoyed this contemporary!

Sarah Darlington is a new author to me and I loved the sound of the blurb for CRAZY SEXY NOTION so I thought; why not? Glad I did but at the same time I'm not overly enthusiastic about the book. The writing was great, don't get me wrong, but I couldn't connect to any of the characters... at all. Okay, maybe Samantha because, well, she's just a kid and reminds me of my own.

Didn't like Raven; not even a little bit. There's stubborn and then there's IRRITATINGLY stubborn. She's definitely

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Full disclosure: as much as the blurb intrigued me (which it obviously did since I volunteered to review it), it also made me a little skeptical. That bit of skepticism stayed with my through a large portion of the book, but at the same time the intrigue persisted as well, which made Crazy Sexy Notion a true page-turner for me. The story begins rather abruptly, but that sort of set the fast paced tale in motion. While I grew to like both

I really liked this one. It's a cute, fun, sweet read. Both Mick and Raven are wild cards. They are free spirits and fun. Mick is looking for more in life and hops in his brother's car and goes back to the trailer park form his childhood to find the one girl who stole his heart when they were kids. Mick kind of rushes into things and thinks with his heart and not his head. I really liked him. When Raven was younger Mick was everything to her but when he comes back into her life she i

This book follows the reunion of Mick and Raven, childhood friends who were torn apart at the age of 10, only for them to be re-united 15 years later when Mick decides to track down the one person he believes is for him. The premise of this story is fine but isn't something to be driven wild with excitement over. I don't know if its just that this book wasn't up my alley or the fact that it j

Mick plays in the minor leagues for baseball, but has eventually gone back home to where it all began in order to 'rescue' his former best friend Raven. Raven is still there, with a daughter, but she is also a prostitute. Not that it matters to Mick.

Raven had lost her best friend and the boy that protected her, ever since she has had to look after herself, stuck in Pecan. When Mick rocks up, he does not give her mu

As ten-year-olds, they were torn apart from one another, but always wondered what would have happened if Mickey Lawson had stayed in Pecan living next to Raven Malone. Would they still be best friends? Would they be in love?

Fed up with wondering, the book begins with 25-year-old Mick Jasmine's epiphany to return to Pecan, KS, with his new name, his new life, and a new idea. He wants to take Raven

My review of Crazy Sexy Notion by Sarah Darlington-Author - Yvonne

This book follows the story of Mick and Raven. Beat friends for 10 years until Micks father comes to take him away from the trailer park they live in. Fast forward 15 years and you see Mick going back to his old life to find Raven. He promised himself when he left he would come back for her.

When Mick left Ravens life spiralled out of control. Her life changed and she hated Mick for leaving her. Now he's back and wants to save her.

This isn't my first rodeo with Sarah Darlington and I can assure you it won't be my last...not by a long shot. Crazy Sexy Notion was right up my alley in every single way.

Sarah has a way with her writing.... she can take a cookie cutter contemporary romance and give it a twist or two in their plot that shakes everything up making it stand out over others. It's what I love about her stories and while this might not be my top book by her (we all have our super favorites) it was definitely

Crazy Sexy Notion is the first book that I've read by Sarah Darlington, and it definitely won't be my last. It did take me a bit to get into at first, (and this is only MY OPINION), but once I got past that hump, I couldn't put it down, as it was definitely a different story than I'm used to reading. It centers around two best friends named Mickey aka Mick & Raven, who were surviving life at their Kansas trailer park, until Mick's dad came and took him away when he was 10 years old.

I really wanted to not like Mickey because the book starts out with him being a cheater. But as the book goes along I can't help but love him. I can't help but love his heart. We learn the only women he ever truly loved was Raven. He even goes to find her as an a
