A Crazy Kind of Love
Love love loved Josie and Micah. She’s sweet with a fantastic moral compass. He’s flirty and adorable. Together their banter is charming and sweet and and they have some fantastic chemistry. And of course it was awesome to see Eden and Adam.
Plot wise, it was good. The story is mostly all fluff and thankfully the conflict is an outside source. I was thrilled to see the open communication between Josie and Micah ...more
If you're a fan of honest, down-right adorable, swoon-worthy Romances, then this book is so your jam. I adored Jo & Micah's relationship. In a literary world full of angsty, turmoil Romances, it was quite refreshing to read about sweet characters, falling in love. ...more
One thing I really enjoyed was how the author gave the readers more from the first couple, Eden and Adam. I love seeing bits and pieces of happy ever after and my always-wanting-more-heart was thrilled.
That said, you don’t need to read these books in order, they stand alone. But I do think reading in order will heighten this wonderful second book.
I’d already grown attached to Mic ...more
Sweet as the characters are, Marlowe is wickedly funny--from the slapstick of the opening to the wordplay and banter woven throughout. As with her first book, she dances around tropes giving you just what you wanted without it ever feeling pr ...more
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Women's fiction.
I loved Mary Ann's first book, and this one covers Eden's brother Micah, who we met in book one.
That book was such a treat to read, humour that wasn't forced, drama, real emotions and scenes I felt actually could play out in real life. I was really looking forward to this second book, and it was another terrific read.
Poor Jo, curious family background that's left her feeling a little b ...more
I had heard very good things about Mary Ann Marlowe’s debut novel, which was my primary reason for picking up A Crazy Kind of Love. I’m glad I did because this book was very cute, and enjoyable. I’m usually not one for romances that involve celebrities, but I found this one to be one of the better ones. A Crazy Kind of Love is the story of Jo, a young biracial (she’s half-Indian) woman working as a paparazzo for a scummy tabloid, and Micah, a rockstar, with a bit of reputation. I thought bo ...more
This was utterly romantic and heartfelt! I adored Josie and Micah and their relationship.

A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe is exactly what you get ...a crazy kind of love, a whirlwind romance; fleeting just like the flash of the paparazza camera. If you like wonderfully written, light, fast paced, swoon worthy moments, and chemistry so strong it jumps off the page, then this is the book for you. Ms. Marlowe pulls it all together in her second book and has left me waiting eagerly to read whatever she comes up with next.
Micah a musician better was known for his romantic entanglements and media-whore ways, than for his songwriting and outstanding performances.
Jo a fledgling paparazza, with a lot of artistic talent, who ...more
This a romance novel. But it definitely feels a bit more hearty than just that. Or at least it did for me. I think that Josie’s story had a lot of depth. She definitely isn’t a one dimensional character. Sometimes in romance-y novels the tension feels forced, it does not in this case. The nature of ...more
Characters reoccur from the first book. Despite the fact that the premise of the meet-cute was the same: everyday girl meets rock star and doesn't know who he is, sparks fly but then the price of fame ...more
