Ian Paine's life has not exactly been picture perfect. He grew up in a small mining town in upstate New York, The Hollows where he was bullied for being overweight and a bit of an outcast. His only friend was a beautiful young woman named, Priss. Priss was there for him when his mother went crazy and drowned his sister, Priss was there for him when he was picked on during gym class, and she has been there for him most of his life. Most people don't believe that Priss exists except for in his imagination and in the pages of his hit Graphic Novel Series, Fatboy & Priss. Those few people who believe that she does exist warns him to stay far away from her. As an adult, Ian is ready to move on from Priss. In both his real life and in the graphic novels. Ian has met a wonderful woman, Megan, and is madly in love. As their relationship progresses and Ian is ready to propose he begins to fear for his life. Priss is less than pleased that Ian's attention has shifted from her to Megan and when Megan starts experiencing "accidents" Ian realizes that Megan's life might be in danger. Will Ian be able to get rid of Priss before she does serious harm to the love of his life?
Holy smokes, Crazy Love You is one heck of a thriller. There are so many twists and turns that you don't know what is real and what isn't. Ian is a seriously damaged young man. The events of his past has led him down the path of drugs and alcohol. Anything to make him forget his past and help his creative juices to keep flowing. The way he met Megan was even a bit creepy, but she normalized his life in a way that Ian desperately needed and frankly had wanted his whole life. Ian was clinging to that normalcy in every way he possibly could - he was as attracted to Megan's "normal" parents as he was to Megan herself. The whole thing was a bit romantic, a bit gothic. Then there is Priss - there is such a mysterious element to her that you find yourself questioning Ian's sanity just like the people of The Hollow's did. Man, it really keeps you on the edge of your seat. Everything culminates in a heart-pounding, page-turning finale that will wrap everything up nicely without seeming forced or fake. It really was a work of beauty.
Bottom line, Lisa Unger is one of the best when it comes to weaving a story that causes your heart to race. Crazy Love You is a story that will suck you in and leave wanting more. So, so good.

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
