TeriLyn's thoughts: **Some Sort of Crazy generously provided in exchange for an honest review.**
I really adored the story of Miles and Natalie. There's a very inherently becoming quality to Harlow's writing. She makes reading and becoming invested in her stories quite effortless. Some Sort of Crazy marks my second Harlow book and concurrently my second great experience with her stories.
Her presentation of the characters in this book I found quite unique and interesting. This author has a luring way to garner the most interest in her characters. Miles Haas, our hero, stole the show for me. Naturally carefree and jovial his impact on Natalie's life is substantial. His impact on the reader is equally enthralling. He's quirky and open and sexually magnetic. Natalie Nixon, our reserved, goal-oriented, and content heroine needs a good dose of Miles type adventure in her life. And boy does she get it, ten fold. When she comes out her shell with Miles and shows she's equally open and passionate as him was most entertaining to read.
Their story, in particular Natalie's with regard to current love life, started off a little rocky for me. Without the very tempting and elegant writing of Harlow this could have went a different way for me definitely. I'm so glad she possesses such a gift to keep a reader hooked even when the heroine's actions are not your favorite. From the time Miles and Natalie relationship blossoms the book held me captive.
Secondary characters we met in Some Sort of Happy return here and make the story that much more excellent. Sebastian and Skylar make several appearances for readers who start the series with the first book. While each can be read as a stand alone, I'd implore readers to read book one first as it's an epic love story. And of course, the love story between Miles and Natalie in this book told from both their points of view more than satisfies.
I'm quite glad I've picked up this author's works. Some Sort of Crazy reminds us to have fun in our love lives, to let go with someone we feel the most comfortable with, and to remember when we're pushed out of comfort zone how rewarding it is to let that person into our souls the way we haven't with anyone else. I look forward to discovering more Melanie Harlow stories in the future.
