Crazy Stupid Love – by Cassie Rocca



Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Are there written rules on how to find a soulmate? Or is it better to trust the hands of fate? A hilarious romance perfect for the fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin.

After enduring a string of dead-end relationships, Zoe Mathison has made a decision – to find a man who truly appreciates her. But this is turning out to be more complicated than she expected. Fed up of being surrounded by insufferably happy couples in love, her mission to find the perfect man starts to become an obsession.

Eric Morgan is pushed to his limits. Hopelessly in love with Zoe, who sees him as nothing more than a best friend to lean on, he can't bear seeing his hopes of romance crushed every time the sculpted pecs of a younger man comes along. But when a new girl appears on the scene, he is determined to prove that he can push his infatuation aside and move on. But is it as easy as it seems?

In the romantic and bustling city of New York, will Zoe and Eric's hilarious misadventures attract Cupid's arrow?



My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Zoe Mathison is determined to finally find THE ONE, it’s not easy though, especially if you’re surrounded by happy couples and then your ex turns up on top of yet.

Eric Morgan is her best friend, they have been best friends for 10 years and Eric has had feelings for Zoe ever since. His feelings are still there, but he tries to hide them. He wants to prove to himself that he can move on, when another girl appears on the scene.

I actually found t hard to get into the book and connecting with the characters. I found out later that it’s actually book 2 of a series, so it’s probably because of that. I also didn’t feel the New York vibes and certain things just didn’t make sense to me.

Half way through though I really started enjoying the book and warmed up to Eric especially. I loved following him around and reading about his emotions. I also really liked his scenes with Zoe. I struggled a bit with the pace of the storyline, but something kept me in the story.

I think the idea behind it all is great and certain parts were gripping, funny and authentic.
