Synopsis from Goodreads
My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one-night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.
What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.
I never thought I’d see her again.
My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.
Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.
Crazy Over You is a cute and quirky romance about meeting your soulmate in a fleeting interaction at the wrong time in your life, only to be given a second chance to embrace happiness.
Mara has recently relocated to Aspen to pursue her veterinary career, determined to make the most of her opportunities, Mara vows to be more adventurous although she does like the idea of being a cat lady. Mara is adorably awkward with a fantastic self-depreciating sense of humour and natural beauty. The direct address to the reader adds to the connection with Mara especially through the story. Mara has been to Aspen before, 2 years ago where she believes she had a less than memorable random hook-up.
Jesse is a nice guy who has a douche-tastic attitude to relationships at the beginning of Crazy Over You, although this maybe attributed to the transient nature of the area with the tourist industry. It takes a resilient person to tackle becoming a permanent resident. Jesse has been tackling a lot of emotional issues in his life over the past few years, altering his previous playboy ways to become almost reclusive. Tragic events were like a wake-up call to Jesse making him re-evaluate his life and future.
When Mara and Jesse cross paths again, it is as if the past was a guiding point bringing them to where they should be and the person they should be with. I loved the connection between Jesse and Mara, the dual viewpoint of their past encounter provided clarity and humour. While their interactions and chemistry fuel the plot alongside personal revelations, animal personalities and cameo character appearances.
Crazy Over You is a slow-burn romance with little to no angst.
