Friendship, Texas just got a little bit crazier with gruff Army veteran, Clay Carrington, and Q Ranch heiress Christy Quinn's world's colliding.

Vegas was a trip, and that was an understatement. An understatement I couldn't remember and that included the brunette in my bed.
That is until my pounding headache had me getting up for a glass of water and I saw the marriage licen

There is one thing that drove me crazy and made me rate the book with 2 stars. Christy's entire half of the book was a flashback to the night they got married. Did we really need so many details about that night, when the two of them could have spend a lot more time trying to live as a married couple? In my opinion, we should have skipped all the details about the wedding night (and I am not talking about the good stuff) and used that space to develop a more realistic relationship between the ma ...more

"Love Like Crazy" was a fun romance that I enjoyed from beginning to end. What I loved the most about this novel was the two main characters. I also liked the story which kept me engrossed with every turn of the page. This was only my second read from Magan Vernon but I will definitely be reading more of this author's work in the future.

"Kissing him was like getting a drink of water after a long hot day,
and I drank up every bit of him, never wanting to let go."

Love Like Crazy is great enemies to lovers’ romance that hits on a war veteran and rich girl who can’t live up to everyone’s expectations.   I loved both the main characters and their interactions with each other but also their interactions with their supporting characters.  Two people who are both crazy in their own sense but once they truly find each other they work well together, and isn’t that something we all want?  I give Love Like Crazy 5 stars

Love like Crazy by Magan Vernon a five-star read that you will love even though its crazy. This is a book in the Friendship Texas series, but they are all stand-alone. I have read a few of the series but not all, and they truly are stand-alone, this time it’s the turn of Crazy Colourful Unicorns Clay Carrington and Christy Quinn. They have both been living with a front they show other people, hiding their true selves and not showing themselves to anyone. Can one crazy night in Vegas show them it ...more

Magan Vernon is a new to me author, and I very much enjoyed reading this book.
I liked the way this book was set out. Going from past to present seamlessly. Christy and Clay have known each other for quite some time. But they never moved in the same social circles. They try to tell themselves the other is annoying, but really that is just a cover up for their real feelings.
I liked how Clay evolved throughout the book. He started off thinking he wasn't good enough for Christy, but by the end of th

Sometimes I wonder if Christy's head is on straight, I'm not sure why she's complaining that a hot man got naked in front of her, “did you seriously just get naked in front of me? And is there a donkey tattoo on your ***?” There are times Clay just gets his woman, “you know you’re voicing all this ***t out loud instead of in your head, but that’s okay because right now I’m getting us a pay -per-view movie, and we’re going lie here, watch it, and cuddle until we fall asleep.” I liked this book, i ...more

This was quite possibly one of my favorite enemies to lovers story that I have read in a really long time. Like seriously. I am still smiling over this book. Clay and Christy wake up to find out they became one in holy matrimony. Ummm what?! They would never choose each other for marriage. So how did this happen? And what happens when its time to go home? You will have to read this fun romance to find out! I will say that the chemistry between these two was off the charts! The author’s sense of ...more

I recieved this book as an ARC for an honest review! Slight Spoiler alert Ahead Too! I am a huge fan of the Friendship Tx series by Magan Vernon and I could not wait for this book!! I will admit in the other stories in this series I was not a fan of Christy and was reluctant to want to read her story but then in one of the earlier books you get to know her a little better and realize maybe she isn't so bad after all and want to see where this thing goes. Then there is Clay the amazingly beautifu ...more

I really, really liked Love Like Crazy. Magan Vernon is a new to me author and I happy to have had there chance to read this book. Love like Crazy is Book 5 I believe in the Friendship, Texas series. It is a stand-alone and you do not had to have read the other books to enjoy this one.

Clay and Christy both work on Q Ranch, which Christy’s family owns. They are in Las Vegas for a convention, much to Clay’s dismay. It seems both find the other annoying and don’t want to spend any more time togethe

This is book 5 in Vernon's Friendship, Texas series and can be read as a stand alone. Good thing too 'cause this was my first of this author and this series and I have to say, I really loved this read / listen! A great story line and narration was really well done. Loved the character chemistry and I really enjoyed the dual point of view although it was a little confusing at first in the audio version since it was just Christy's character that was re-living the past and Clay's version was more c ...more

****ARC Received for Honest Review****

This is a book in a series, and didn’t even realize it until I got to the end of the book. It is a total stand alone, you will not feel lost at all, if this is your first foray into this series. This is also my first time reading a Magan Vernon book, and she is just great. I love a good enemies to lovers story. It is amazing and refreshing reading her take on this trope.

The story and chemistry between Clayton and Christy is so rampant, but th

Both Clay & Christy are misfits, social unicorns. Each is showing the world a different face, a facade, afraid to be themselves. At first they rub each other the wrong way, but soon they're wondering if all the snark is just a cover for deeper feelings. Waking up hungover and married isn't the way they planned to end a business trip in Vegas, but what happens when real life intrudes, and they have to return to Friendship, Texas?

This was a quick and crazy read, but I was very intrigued and intere

This review is based on the audiobook.
At first I was confused by the fact that chapters switched from flashbacks to present time, made it hard to follow sometimes. But after I figured that out, it turned out to be a really lovely story to listen to. Christy and Clay are two people with no clue whatsoever about what to do with their lives. “Two unicorns in a world full of horses.” I loved how they got married and started to know each other from there. But I’m a sucker for the fake marriage trope.

Love Like Crazy is such a sweet romance

Christy hasn’t had an experience with a man, where he genuinely cares about her. And Clay I think he yearns to find someone, someone that could be his match, And that Christy does. They are each other's unicorn. They love like crazy but is there any other way?

I enjoyed this story of Christy and Clay. Two characters that assume so much about each other but realize eventually, that there is so much about each other they didn’t know. I thought it was sweet how

This is another great story from Magan Vernon. It's a funny, easy-to-read story.
I really loved the characters, Clay and Christy are great. The interactions between them were perfect, just like with the other characters.
Clay and Christy go to Las Vegas at a convention, however, one finds the other annoying and they barely stand up. However, after a drunken night, they get married and have to deal with the consequences of their mistakes.

Seriously who would not want a cowboy with a Mohawk seriously yummy! This was my first book by this author. Clay is an army get working at the Q ranch. Christy is the bosses daughter and the heir to the ranch and when clay needs to go to Vegas for a convention she comes along. And these two and up getting married. This isn't like other Vegas marriage books and I loved that. I loved this book so much I need the other in this series. This can completely stand alone so you can definit

It was too quick and rushed for my liking, I wanted more development from the characters in the present rather than going back and forth between the "night they can't remember" and the present.. I felt like they needed it more chemistry between them and to interact more than what they did. ...more

Great short read. Tho I was hoping of something more. Like how it started on how they fell in love, more of Christy’s now thoughts on the situation or something like that.

Audio - The story was decent. A bit slow in places and then when it was getting good, it would cut away. The narrator did a good job. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of this audiobook.

Ms. Vernon had me laughing from page one to the end.  Clay and Christy are the funniest duo. They have a serious ying yang pull for each other that leads to some serious craziness.

Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amok around her Texas ranch.

You can stalk or...er...find her online at all of these fun and happy places.
