As always, a solid sexy read by K.L. Grayson. I love when characters interconnect in a series; it's like extra epilogues! Tess and Beau we adorable together. I will admit to be being a bit irritated at the lack of communication. And then I realized, that is real life! I have done the same thing. Wanting to speak your heart but not wanting to be vulnerable, just in case it isn't reciprocated. I also really liked that the angsts was not heavy or prolonged! I can't wait for the next one in this ser ...more

A fun, heartwarming, crazy, beautiful love story! I love enemies to lovers stories. Despite Tess’ dislike, she couldn’t deny the chemistry, attraction and swoon-worthiness of Beau. 😍

As these two are circling around each other, getting to know each other, the good times, the humor, the unwavering friendship becomes something neither can walk away from.

I love Beau’s support of Tess... with her business, with her heart. Tess had a rough time growing up and he gives her everything she was missing..

There’s nothing more exciting than seeing that K.L. Grayson has a new book coming out. Her words and beautiful storytelling have a way of captivating me and leaving me begging for more all at the same time. So, of course, when I heard Crazy, Beautiful Love was coming out, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

Crazy, Beautiful Love follows the story of Tess and Beau. Tess’s life has been anything but easy. Unbeknownst to him, Beau contributed to Tess’s downfall. But, Tess has been working ha

I love this series so much and this was a great installment to the series. It can be read as a standalone, but why wouldn't you want to read the previous books in the series. I instantly fell for Tess and Beau. They sucked me right into the book. I literally couldn't put this book down. Tess and Beau have a ton of chemistry. It gets pretty steamy between those two. This story has light and funny moments, but it also has serious punch you in the heart moments. It's a well rounded book in

I am a sucker for a gal whose life has been a struggle and she's pretty tough in spite of it. Tess is that gal. Beau is a wonderful guy.
It's sweet.

I love when you think a book is going to go one way and it goes another. That's what happened with this book. I thought what happened in the past was one thing, but it turns out being something else.

Tess Walker runs a floral shop in Heaven, Texas, and struggles to make ends meet. She took over the shop for her grandmother, but is happy to be back in her small town. Her best friend, Mo, is getting married to an Allen, and one of the Allen brothers is Beau, world renowned photographer. Beau travel

This story is an amazing roller coaster ride that will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. I could not put this book down for nothing when I started it. I first started reading it in the car on a ride then I could not put it down and I finished it that night.

Tess is a strong character that I loved because she was real with herself and she knew when she couldn't handle things and did not lie or try to fake it. She was real with Beau and that I loved most about her

This was a quick read, and one that I really enjoyed. And, before I get into my review, a quick read is not a bad thing. I am not saying the book was short, or not developed, just that it was a smooth read, there was not a lot of angst, and I was able to just enjoy.

I liked Tess, the way she was trying to put her life back together and I loved Beau, how attracted he was to her, and why he couldn't figure out the reason she seemed familiar

This is my first read by this author. I purchased the paperback because the BLURB really caught my eye & I was super excited to read it.

Mo & Clair's best friend Tess has always been like family. She knows she isn't blood but has never felt or been treated any different. When Beau comes back for his brothers wedding, he is confused at to why Tess gives him the cold shoulder. (IDIOT!) How can he forget what he did years back where it left Tess not only heart broken but SHATTERED, The worst part is

Every time I get to read a new book in this series I start out thinking that no way it can get better than the book before. But K.L. Grayson raises the bar with every new addition leaving me in awe. Crazy Beautiful Love is exactly what this book is, crazy beautiful.
Both Beau and Tess on their own are characters that I adore, but together they are phenomenal. Tess with her sass towards Beau that hides a heart full of generosity and love and Beau with his absolutely swoon worthy loving ways *sigh*

Beau and Tess have always felt this attraction to each other. While Tess fights it, dislikes him, has an attitude towards him when he's around, Beau is curious about her. He fights his attraction and want to know more about her, but in the end, his curiosity wins out.

Poor Tess, she's had a rough life. She's made a good life for herself, but keeps her heart locked up because she's been heartbroken with her heart in the care of family. She has this attraction to Beau but knows Beau won't stay arou

I'll be honest and say this story let me down a bit. The storyline has so much potential but something was missing for me and that is why I'm giving it a -4*!

As individuals I really liked Tess and Beau. She's been through hell and managed to pull herself up. She was strong, funny with a beautiful heart.
When thinking about Beau I can't help but find him sweet. And maybe that was why the chemistry (for me) never reached that sizzling hot levels I was hoping from the get go.

More Allens? Hell yeah! I was so excited for a new book by KL Grayson! And man she didn’t disappoint with this one. Can you say swoon worthy? These Allen brothers keep getting sexier and swoony with each new book.

I devoured this book. It was sweet with a whole lot of sexy. Beau is a smooth talker just like the other men in his family. He’s an alpha male with a sweet side. He’s more than the famous photographer. Tess is a reformed woman with secrets. But her secrets don’t define her. She’s sweet

Fast, easy read featuring one of Mo’s best friends (Tess) and another Allen brother (have mercy!)- Beau. I think that Tess is one of the heroines that I’ve most related to- she’s been burned by a tough life and has to be independent and closed off to get by. She’s emotionally unavailable. Beau is always traveling for his work (photographer). When his brother’s upcoming wedding brings him home for a short period, sparks fly.

I loved the chemistry between the two, and, once again, Tess is my gal.

I honestly feel like Beau and Tessa need another book or two because this story just flows so effortlessly that I don’t want it to end!

Tess and Beau have stolen my heart, right along with every other character in Heaven, Texas. I love these characters and the family in this book and I can’t get my hands on them fast enough! Tess and Beau are perfection! I couldn’t put them down and had to know what happened. Right to the very end I was flipping the pages as fast as I could. Another outstanding book by Ms. Grayson.

What a catch!

K.L. Grayson caught me off guard in this sweet and wonderful story. Crazy Beautiful Love is part of the Dirty Dicks series and tells the story of Beau and Tess.

"If this were a romance novel, I’d swoon."

It is! And boy did I swoon!

A wonderful engagingly romantic read that took two thoroughly honest and down to earth characters and gave them the opportunity to find their happy ever after…but was it as easy as it should have been?
Well. Where would be the fun it that?? The author delivered and rounded story that brought so much to the table that it kept me totally entertained.
Tess owned a flower shop and in many respects keeps herself to herself, she has her friends and she loves them dearly but they only know what she wants

I have loved this series up to this point and was ecstatic when I found out we were finally going to get to know the elusive, absent Allen boy, Beau. So much had been made of him and with the exception of a few glimpses at who he was through other’s perspectives, I had no idea what to make of the nomadic brother. I was also very excited to learn more about Tess and her highly guarded past. I was not disappointed with Crazy, Beautiful Love, and I was glad not to have a high-drama, angst-fest for ...more

Beautiful! Grayson has delivered another heartwarming read! Crazy, Beautiful Love is the fourth book in the Dirty Dick's series. although it is a standalone novel, I recommend you read the series. Finally, Tess's story is here! I always loved her character from the previous books. She stole my heart early on when she adopted Simon! Beau was a pleasant surprise.

I have been waiting for Tess's story since book #1 and now it's here!

Tess is an amazingly strong and resilient person. She has been through so much but it never changed who she was at heart. She took those disadvantages and all that pain and channeled it into kindness, which is something I wish could happen more in real life. I just wish she'd felt able to talk to her girls more openly about her past.

Beau was great because he knew what he wanted, both when leaving home and returning. I liked how

3.5-4 stars, sweet, sexy, and a HEA!

Tess has had a chip on her shoulder when it comes mention to Beau Allen for a while. Beau's been away from Heaven doing his photography gig travelling the world for years so why does she seem to hate him so much?

We get the low down on Mo's friend (and owner of Simon, the mouthy bird she took in from Animal Haven, lol) delving into her past and finding out makes her so closed off. She's not actually a stranger to Heaven, Texas, and it's her past and what it h

I think this is my favorite book in K.L. Grayson's Dirty Dicks series! And yes- there are glimpses of the other couples from the series sprinkled in the pages of Crazy Beautiful Love. I liked that Tess and Beau's journey was a bit emotional and rooted in pain and forgiveness.

Goodness had Tess been through a lot. Things that would've hardened a lot of folks but her heart was still tender and compassionate. As evidenced by the kindness she shows to strangers through her business. Which is what fir

I absolutely love this brilliant enemy to lovers story. I fell in love with the characters and the background of the story really, really made it that much better that the norm. I laughed a hell of a lot through this book. But there were dark parts to it that made me really upset and really not knowing how to deal with the emotions it caused.

The characters as I said we're brilliant and although there have been previous books that came before this. I went in blind and fell completely in
