In this poignant and deeply sensual new contemporary romance—perfect for readers of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson—Molly O’Keefe proves that lost loves don’t have to stay lost forever. Dallas TV morning show host Madelyn Cornish is poised, perfect, and unflappable, from her glossy smile to her sleek professionalism. No one knows that her iron will guards a shattered heart and memories of a man she’s determined to lock out. Until that man shows up at a morning meeting like a bad dream: Billy Wilkins, sexy hockey superstar in a tailspin—still skating, still fighting, and still her ex-husband. Now the producers want this poster child for bad behavior to undergo an on-air makeover, and Billy, who has nothing to lose, agrees to the project. It’s his only chance to get near Maddy again, and to fight for the right things this time around. He believes in the fire in Maddy’s whiskey eyes and the passion that ignites the air between them. This bad-boy heartbreaker wants a last shot to be redeemed by the only thing that matters: Maddy’s love.
Dallas AM Talk Show Host Madelyn Cornish has worked her way up from the bottom to get to where she is now. However, her past is about to come back to haunt her. Madelyn’s ex-husband has just become part of her day job.
Hockey star Billy Wilkins has a horrible reputation and if he doesn’t fix his bad boy image he’s going to be out of a job. A makeover opportunity arises and Billy’s against it until he learns it will be on his ex-wife’s show. Billy will use any excuse to get closer to his Maddy once again.
Crazy Thing Called Love has become my all-time favorite contemporary romance! Maddy and Billy’s story is so special. I’m completely in love with Crazy Thing Called Love. I’m not always a fan of reunion romances but Molly O’Keefe uses her magic pen to create a golden story with Crazy Thing Called Love! When I flipped to the last page of this story I immediately wanted to start it over and that rarely happens!
Maddy and Billy are oh so stubborn which only makes their story greater! There are parts that will have you tearing up they are so heartbreaking! These parts really give this story such depth. Maddy and Billy’s story is full of drama, laughs and tons of sexy parts that heat things up. These two cannot deny the passion that flows between them at all times.
One of the things that I love about Ms. O’Keefe’s work is her ability to weave life into her books. She makes it feel like you could meet her characters on the street and strike up a conversation with them. The obstacles that her characters face are gripping and engaging. Maddy and Billy face so many roadblocks but watching them find their way around them is perfection. Don’t miss out on O’Keefe’s Crooked Creek series! These are the books you will still be talking about in twenty years!
