Book Review: Crazy About Love by Cassie Mae

We were given the opportunity to read Crazy About prior to its release in June.  Read below to find out what this book is about and to see what the Vise Library thought about it!

About the book:

Single again on Valentine’s Day, struggling actor Alec Tucker agrees to help out his longtime friend—and unrequited love—Theresa Jones by filling in as one of the bachelors for her company’s charity auction. Alec figures it couldn’t hurt to meet someone new. Still, working with Theresa reminds him of all the reasons he never got over her. So it feels a little bittersweet when, out of nowhere, a beautiful young street artist buys a date with him for a whopping four grand.

Little does he know, Theresa’s had a major change of heart. She’s crushed when someone else wins a date with Alec—but she isn’t going down without a fight. After a pep talk from her best friend, Theresa makes a desperate move that goes against her better judgment . . . and things only get crazier from there. But with Alec ready to move on and Theresa afraid she’s pushed him away for good, maybe a little crazy is exactly what they need—before they both miss their shot.
Alec has been in love with Theresa for years.  Little does he know that Theresa has felt the same way, but she has had her reasons for not acting on those feelings.  Alec would do anything for Theresa, like being a participant in a bachelor auction that Theresa is helping organize.  Theresa has the grand plan of winning Alec's auction so that she can finally tell Alec how she feels about him.  However, best laid plans do not go according to plan because someone bids (and wins) on Alec!  It is a a street artist named Rian.  Alec is forced to spend the evening with Rian and he is determined to use this night to get over Theresa.  Theresa is (of course) devastated and her evening is not going according to plan (for multiple reasons, you have to read to find out why!).  Both of them have to use this night to figure out what they really want and find out if it is time to just move on.  This book is very different because it is from Alec's point of view for half of the book and from Theresa's point of view the other half.  However, each section alternates between past and present to show why each character reacts to their current relationship.  This book is funny and very sweet in the fact that you enjoy seeing how Alec and Theresa's past friendship blooms.  I thought this book was great!

About the author:

Cassie Mae (who dons the name Becca Ann on occasion) is the author of a few hundred... okay, maybe not that many... books. Some of which became popular for their quirky titles, characters, and stories. She likes writing about nerds, geeks, the awkward, the fluffy, the short, the shy, the loud, the fun. 

Since publishing her bestselling debut, Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend, she has published and sold books to Random House, Swoon Romance, and Tulip Romance. She has a favorite of all her babies, but no, she won't tell you what it is. (Mainly because it changes depending on the day.) 

Along with writing, Cassie likes to binge watch Teen Wolf and The Big Bang Theory. She can quote Harry Potter lines quick as a whip. And she likes kissing her hubby, but only if his facial hair is trimmed. She also likes cheesecake to a very obsessive degree.
