Book Review: Crazy Good

Crazy Good (Crazy Good)
by Rachel Robinson

Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.

Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.

Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.

She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…

The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.

Crazy people perish for love.

Good people live for it.

Love doesn’t die. No matter how many bullets you put in it.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Crazy Good is a contemporary military romance told from dual points of view of the heroine, Windsor, and the hero - a Navy SEAL - Maverick. Rachel Robinson really hooked me from the Prologue. I was intrigued after and couldn't put the book down for a while.

These two characters were fun. They're banter is excellent and one of my favorite moments happens when Maverick takes Windsor on an adrenaline charged date where I could feel their connection so viscerally. I enjoyed many of the details about their relationship and loved how Maverick was not a "one woman man" but fell really hard for Windsor. I loved the cat and mouse game they played because it turned into a really great friendship and then eventually more. Their romance was great reading.

However, there were times in the middle where I thought some of the drama between the two was juvenile and thrown in for plot value rather than organic relationship shortcomings. While I understood the heroine's thoughts I just didn't understand why she kept reverting back to past issues. There was some maturing I wanted from her that I didn't get. Things got a bit off track for me in the plot during the inevitable conflict and I thought the secondary characters story was much bigger and more heart wrenching than the plight of Windsor and Mav.

Despite that, the end picked up again in quite interesting ways and Robinson provided a really sweet epilogue. I'm glad to have been introduced to these characters and look forward to reading the next installment.
