I wasn’t a jock, wasn’t the pretty boy next door. My family didn’t have any wealth, so I was “that guy from the wrong side of the tracks.”

I got into too much trouble, too many fights.

I would have been classified as the bad boy, the guy your mother warned you about.

And when I transferred to Silver Creek High to finish my senior year, I had one goal—keep my head down, don’t

I am a huge fan of Jenika Snow, absolutely love her. That said I think she really shines when it is new adult characters! Harlow is eighteen, a senior in high school. Aiden is a smidgen older trying to finish high school and make something of himself. New school, new attitude, he is determined to keep his head down and move on. Harlow is fascinated with this boy who sits by himself at lunch, reading. This whole set up right here is the stuff dreams are made of. I would have thought I died and go ...more

THAT CRAZY KIND is a sexy opposites attract new adult novella about Aiden and Harlow who met during their senior year in high school . They came from different social standing but it was love at first sight for the both of them . Loved this book! Harlow saw a good guy beneath the bad boy image. And Aiden was not afraid to let out his demons when he thinks Harlow is in danger . Loved the chemistry between them . Overall this was an easy 5-star read !

This was just what I needed as an escape from what is going on right now in the world. Jenika’s stories are always so good and this was no exception. Sweet romance between the good girl and the bad boy. Aiden kept to himself because all he wanted to do was just graduate but there was something about him that called to Harlow. She who he actually was and that was new to him. Great chemistry between them. Loved it. Highly recommend this read. A perfect escape.

Any time I feel the need to read a book that is all about Instant love, I look up Jenika Snow. Her books never let me down in that department. Aiden may be older that the other students, but he is just trying to graduate high school. Harlow is attracted to him and when her car won't start one day, he gives her a ride. I love the story, them getting together and where they ended up. Just an all around feel good story!! ...more

I freaking loved this story. The bad boy who just turned his life around now finds his HEA at his new school. I loved how Aiden tried to make his mother proud and now Harlow as well. A sweet story about falling in love and how they found their one early in life. Romantic safe and so so sweet. Got to love Aiden😍😍😍😍

Short and sweet.

Loner high school hero with a troubled past transfers for his Mum to get medical treatment, in his senior year.

Harlow and Aiden were sweet together. Regular idiotic high school posturing braggart.

Oh how I love young love and Jenika Snow definitely wrote it well! Harlow and Aiden’s story is sweet, innocent young love between the new boy outsider and the shy girl in school. I love how they are instantly drawn to each other and can’t deny their feelings. There are some steamy moments and lots of sweet times in the is quick read. It was so much fun to read! I received this book as an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute, slow burn/hidden feelings, high school romance. Aiden and Harlow made a very cute couple. These two were very shy and were too afraid to make the first move. Harlow didn't judge Aiden about his past and Aiden thought his past defined him and was afraid to take a chance with Harlow. I would recommend this book.

I found it very easy to get swept up into this book. This intense romance is filled with steamy heat and deep emotions. Harlow and Aiden had amazing chemistry and the pull of attraction between them was so strong it was practically tangible. I loved these two so much and I felt that they made an amazing couple. Totally swoon worthy!! I am posting a sincere review of my own accord.

Always love Jenika Snow's stories! YA romances aren't always one of my favorite reads, but this one didn't disappoint. There was a nice slow burn as they got to know each other, but in reality they knew they were meant for each other even before speaking. Great read! ...more

Bullying, loved one dealing with cancer remission, ableist slurs (“spastic”, “spaz”), violence and physical altercation, blood.

This was one was pretty much the same thing I’ve read before from this author. The same dragged on instalove that makes the book seem longer than it actually is. I didn’t really care about the characters and it wasn’t very smutty, but I guess that’s understandable since the characters are young. The grammar and writing isn’t very good either.

Aiden and Harlow are a cute young couple in Jenika Snow's That Crazy Kind. Harlow is in her senior year of high school and is dreaming about the new boy in school, Aiden. He's brooding, he likes to read - yay, and he's totally unapproachable. He doesn't seem to have any friends and sits alone at lunch. She is dying to learn more about him.

Aiden has noticed popular girl Harlow looking at him, but he is determined to stay on the straight and narrow. He is almost 20 and is finally finishing high sc

3.5 stars
That Crazy Kind by Jenika Snow was a short and sweet high school romance. Harlow is a senior in high school and can't stop thinking about the new kid in her grade, Aiden, who is the complete opposite of her and a loner. Aiden is also attracted to Harlow, but doesn't want to dirty her with his rough life. When they have a chance encounter they begin hanging out, slowly wanting more from each other. This was a slow burn romance, and even then, they spend the majority of the novel forming
First things first; I love the cover of this book!
This story is short, fast paced and an enjoyable read. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters likeable and the storyline enjoyable. Harlow has a crush on the new student at school but is too shy to make a move. Aiden is the new student at school. He needs to behave and stay out of trouble. Nobody has ever understood him other than his mom. That changes when he meets H

Jenika Snow writes high school romance the way it should be done! Aiden, at 19, is older than the other seniors at his high school. He's a transfer student for that last year, looks more man than boy, and has an aura of power already. Is it any wonder that Harlow is fascinated by him? She's somewhat shy, sweet, and looks beyond the surface. Aiden has never had anyone, other than his mother, who is saw past his size, his poor circumstances to the man he could be.... until Harlow. Low drama and an ...more

This story just gave me all the feels. Aiden is the bad boy, has past indiscretions, but all he s trying to do is graduate to be able to continue his studies to make his mom proud. At school he meets Harlow, she’s been glancing and staring at him. She has his emotions confused.

Such a sweet story about young love, about laying your cards out in front of someone you care and they don’t run away from you, about having someone there to trust and best of all to love you as you are. I want to know mo

A new author to me. This was a sweet, emotional read which I very much enjoyed. This story is about Aiden And Harlow. Aiden is the new guy at school. He’s emotionally unavailable and secretive. Harlow finds this fascinating about him. She is shy though, so although she wants to get to know him she stays silent. When they do meet, her a ride home from school and they both immediately have this instant connection. They first become fast friends but as they get to know each other, a sweet romance b ...more
