A chance to shine...

The closest Avery Shields expects to get to the music industry is her janitor position at Charisma recording studio, and singing secretly in her local karaoke bar. Working two jobs and studying full-time, she’s doing all she can to earn her parents’ trust after making mistakes in high school. But now a gorgeous stranger is filling her head with dreams of singing professionally—and filling her nights with desire…
Lazarus Kyson’s A&R career took a hit after he was wrongfully accused of harassment. To restore his reputation, he needs to discover a new talent. And when he least expects it, there she is: singing while she cleans the Charisma offices. As stubborn as she is talented, she refuses to audition. If he wants Avery—her voice and her heart—he’ll have to open himself up for the first time for a love too crazy good to let go...

In Love Like Crazy (Love & Harmony Romance #2) by Crystal B. Bright, Lazarus 'Laz' Kyson is determined to get his career back on track, but to do that he needs to find some brilliant new talent; someone that is going to rock the music industry. Believing Avery Shields is that talent, he offers to help her. Will Avery put her trust in Laz or will he be another person that lets her down by taking advantage of her?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Bright, and I've got to say that I absolutely loved it because of what happens at the start that guarantees the hero is going to have a tough time of repairing his reputation after what happens. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where things get very interesting, as the heroine is one to trust easily, especially someone like Laz with his smooth attitude, award-winning charm and gorgeous looks. Will Laz be able to find a way to convince Avery to give him a shot in launching her music career beyond her singing while she works as a cleaner. 

As for the dialogue, it entertained me from start to finish, as the heroine has already faced plenty of disappointment in her past and getting her hopes up again is something she's not prepared to do, especially with the way her parents feel apart her being part of the music industry, if she happens to get her shot. Moreover, the heroine is strong and brave for taking a chance on the hero, even though she hasn't had the best of luck in the past with trusting people. I also liked the close relationship she shares with her family, although her parents are way too protective of her. Is her judgment really all that bad or are her parents too overprotective? While the hero, he's charming, driven, confident and I liked how determined he was to win over the heroine because he needs her to ever be able to get back his reputation. I also liked the decisions he made throughout this story and that he would do anything for the heroine because she deserves a shot at a dream she never thought would ever come true. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is that he would do anything to protect the heroine. Will he break the rules to protect her? 

Overall, Ms. Bright has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was tangible and convincing; the romance was heart-warming and special because it's palpable how much the hero cares for Avery; and the ending had me loving the lengths the hero goes to in order for the heroine to have her shot at her dream. Will he be able to help her? However, it was how things worked out for the hero and heroine that I loved the most, as Laz needs the heroine in his life. She makes his world more interesting because she challenges him. I would recommend Love Like Crazy by Crystal B. Bright, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope or books, the mysterious strangers trope or books by authors Dahlia Rose, Siera London, Melinda Di Lorenzo and Delaney Diamond.
