Kissing her Crazy
Crazy Love #2
By Kira Archer
Released October 12th, 2015
Entangled Publishing

Sometimes a kiss is so much more...

Single mom Lena Oserkowski just wants to relax at the 5-star resort where her brother is getting married. Oh, and figure out how to make one of her businesses successful enough to support her son. Her focus is thrown out of whack when Elliot Debusshere, twin brother of her new sister-in-law, swims to her rescue at the hotel pool.

Elliot is disillusioned with his wealthy, playboy lifestyle and wants nothing more than to bring some meaning and purpose to the charity he runs. When he rescues Lena from a case of heat exhaustion and meets her son Tyler, he has no idea the answer to his problems might have just fallen in his lap. Literally.

With Lena's ideas and Elliot's know-how, they might just be able to make their ventures a success. Except pleasure has a sneaky way of mixing with their business, leaving both dazed and confused. Charming as he is, Elliot isn't father material. And there's no room for a single mom and her child in his life. While the attraction between them isn't easily squashed, there's no telling the lengths his family will go to prevent a relationship.

In Kissing her Crazy (Crazy Love #2) by Kira Archer, Lena Oserkowski has some great ideas, but they never amount to anything. This time around she's hoping something will come of her efforts, especially with Elliot Debusshere on her side. However, not everyone is thrilled that Lena and Elliot are spending time together. Will they achieve their shot at happy ever after or will his family do anything they can to put a stop to their relationship?

The further I got into the story, the more I thought to myself 'I wish I had of read the first book of this series'. Not to worry though, as this can be read as a stand-alone, but knowing more about how Elliot's sister and Lena's brother ended up together would have made this story even better for me I believe. However, in saying that, I really liked this story right from the beginning, as the hero does something wonderful for the heroine and she can't help but be grateful. Her son is such an adventurous little boy and it's just lucky the hero is in the right place at the right time to help her.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and I couldn't help but feel sorry for the hero, as his parents are a real piece of work that don't have a lot of faith in Elliot. Luckily, the heroine has enough faith in him and I loved the decisions he makes in order to have the heroine in his life for years to come. Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked that she didn't give up on her ideas because surely something was going to come of one of them sooner or later. I also liked the close relationship the heroine had with her son and that she would do anything for him, even if it means spending time with Elliot when she knows she shouldn't. 

While the hero, he's confident, an all-round good guy and I really liked the growing bond between him and the heroine's son. There's quite a bit of stars-in-his-eyes, I-want-to-spend-time-with-Elliot from the kid, which I loved because the heroine's son needs a father figure in his life besides the heroine's brother who looks out too much for Lena. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is the way he stood up to his parents because how dare they think they're better than everyone else. Really, I couldn't get over how rude and snobbish they were when they had such kind and caring children in the hero and his sister.

Overall, Ms. Archer has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between the hero and heroine is there from the moment they meet and just keeps getting stronger as the story progresses until they finally give in to their feelings; and the ending had me loving the hero's determination to prove to the heroine that she's the one for him. Certainly, what he does had me cheering. I would recommend Kissing her Crazy by Kira Archer, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Stefanie London, Kadie Scott, Jenna Bayley-Burke and Wynter Daniels.
