Crazy Thing Called Love is a story about getting a second chance with the love of your life and finding the courage to let go of the demons that tore you apart. Molly O’Keefe created a couple that were frustrating, funny, sexy and had me begging for just a few more minutes with them.
Maddy and Billy were married very young and it ended with both of them being devastated. Maddy vowed she would never let anyone else’s needs overshadow her own wants and needs, while Billy decided turning into a bad ass who didn’t care about anyone was better. What was refreshing about this story was the fact that it was Billy who was honest with himself about exactly who and what he wanted. He wanted a family and needed Maddy to love him again. He may not have always gone about things in the best way, but as a reader you loved Billy for just how far he was willing to go to get the woman he loved.
Maddy wasn’t always a woman that I liked. I could understand her leeriness when it came to dealing with Billy, but her unwillingness to have their shared past come out almost made it seem like she was embarrassed about their marriage and possibly Billy. I’ll admit she was put in a hard place, but when it was so clear what her feelings were for Billy, it was hard to follow along as she pushed the man away time and again.
Madelyn Cornish has been trying to shed the memories of the man she loved more than life itself and the disaster their marriage ended up being. She’s remade herself into a Dallas morning talk show host who has aspirations to be a National anchor. But when her morning show decides to do a makeover on local bad boy hockey player Billy Wilkins, her past and her present collide with one another.
Billy may be the bad boy of hockey, but he has a soft center when it comes to Maddy. She was and still is his everything. Too bad Maddy doesn’t see it that way. It will take everything Billy has to get back the one thing he wants more desperately than the Cup.
In this poignant and deeply sensual new contemporary romance—perfect for readers of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson—Molly O’Keefe proves that lost loves don’t have to stay lost forever.
Dallas TV morning show host Madelyn Cornish is poised, perfect, and unflappable, from her glossy smile to her sleek professionalism. No one knows that her iron will guards a shattered heart and memories of a man she’s determined to lock out. Until that man shows up at a morning meeting like a bad dream: Billy Wilkins, sexy hockey superstar in a tailspin—still skating, still fighting, and still her ex-husband.
Now the producers want this poster child for bad behavior to undergo an on-air makeover, and Billy, who has nothing to lose, agrees to the project. It’s his only chance to get near Maddy again, and to fight for the right things this time around. He believes in the fire in Maddy’s whiskey eyes and the passion that ignites the air between them. This bad-boy heartbreaker wants a last shot to be redeemed by the only thing that matters: Maddy’s love.
