Review: A Crazy Thing Called Loved by Christina C. Jones

The Blurb
Simone is a woman on a mission: Stop being boring, and fall in love.

That's easier said than done with no prospects on the table... or under the table... or near the table. Her luck changes when fellow neighborhood business owner Roman Taylor walks through the door of her flower shop.

Roman is single, successful, and sexy — everything Simone is looking for to embark on a whirlwind summer romance with the potential to spark an everlasting love.

But things are never as "perfect" as they seem, and Simone — and Roman — have to decide if they're willing to risk their hearts when things get a little messy in their pursuit of a crazy little thing called love. 

My Review
I bought this book as soon as I saw the cover and read the blurb. Then I let it sit on my Kindle for some unknown reason. Only to try to reorder it again when it came into my sphere once again because I really liked it (don’t you hate when you attempt to order books you already own?).

A lovely contemporary romance that added a definitive African American flare to it, such as a small bit of slang, style and a wonderful amount of success.  The book was filled with successful small business owners, which I loved.

Can we say drama? But not in the typical way you might think. Through the well written characters Ms. Jones had us fall in love, get angry, say “Oh, no he didn’t” ( a few times), want to weep for the tragedy that occurs, and then sigh a the happily ever ending. Simone and Ramon have a tumultuous relationship, but it all works out in the end.

I give this book four out of five coffee shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased the book from Amazon.


I love reading your comments.
