A Crazy Kind of Love
By Mary Ann Marlowe
Releasing November 28th, 2017
Kensington Publishing

Celebrities hold zero interest for photographer Jo Wilder. That's a problem, since snapping pics of the stars is how the pretty paparazza pays the rent. So when Jo attempts to catch a money shot atop the broad shoulders of a helpful bystander, the only thing she notices about the stranger she straddles is that he's seriously hot. Only later does Jo learn that he's also Micah Sinclair--one of rock's notorious bad boys...

Soon Jo is on the verge of getting fired for missing a Micah Sinclair exclusive. Until she's suddenly being pursued by the heartthrob himself. But how can she be sure the musician's mind-blowing kisses are the real deal? Her colleagues claim he's a media whore, gambling on some free PR. But something has Jo hoping Micah's feeling the same powerful pull that she does. A pull so strong, she can't resist becoming his latest love, even if it means she might become the media's latest victim . . .

In A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe, Jo Wilder isn't the best at taking pictures of celebrities in her job as a member of the paparazzi, but it's the only job where she earns enough money to pay her rent. However, when she helps Micah Sinclair, she doesn't realize the stranger she helped is actually one of rock legends bad boys before it's too late to get a good snapshot. However, when Micah starts pursuing her for reasons Jo's not sure whether she can trust, Jo gives him a chance anyway. Will Jo get the opportunity of a lifetime, or will she find he's using her for his own personal gain because he needs some free PR?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Marlowe, and It's a book that I absolutely loved because Jo isn't your typical paparazzi in the way she doesn't want anything to do with celebrities or shooting saucy photos of them that go viral. However, Micah opens her eyes up to a whole new way of using her talents and I liked that she did give him a chance, despite the fact that being with him could blow up in her face. Will things end badly for her when it comes to her and Micah?

With the way this story started, it had me liking the heroine immediately, as she does the best she can. However, she isn't cut out to be a member of the paparazzi and it shows through everything she does for Micah and those he cares about. I also liked the obstacles Jo and Micah faced on their journey to happy ever after, as secrets have a way of coming out and when few people know what someone is hiding it's easy to play the blame game. Will Micah be able to put his trust in Jo or will he ruin the best thing that's ever happened to him -- a chance at happy ever after? 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero, which is why he's so protective of his privacy and needs Jo. Will the heroine do right by Micah? Will Jo get the sort of story that will put her in her boss's good graces? Will putting her trust in Micah come back to bite her? Moreover, I really liked the fact that the heroine isn't your typical paparazzi in being always up in a celebrity's business and determined to get the elusive shot everyone wants. I also liked how she handled herself when it came to being part of Micah's world, because it gave her the opportunity to decide what she wanted to do with her future. I also liked the decisions the heroine made throughout this book, as she discovers there's more to life than paying the rent like love and happiness. 

Overall, Ms. Marlowe has delivered an exceptional read in this book where opposites attract; the chemistry between this couple was powerful; and the ending had me so happy for these two, especially after what happens to make their relationship go awry. Luckily, one of them is determined to make things right since that person was in the wrong. I would recommend A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe, if you enjoy women's fiction / Chick-Lit stories, the opposites attract trope, or books by authors Robyn Neeley, Kira Archer, Sariah Wilson and Katie McCoy.
