Crazy Stupid Love by Cassie Rocca (Tuesday Intro & Teaser Tuesday)

As per usual, "First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" from Bibliophile by the Sea is on vacation ... but I'm used to doing these two together so I'm just going to stick with it. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read. I know I have more than a line or two. Be impressed I didn't just screenshot the whole page to post.

Crazy Stupid Love is Cassie Rocca's follow-up to A New York Love Story, which I read back in December.  This time the main focus is on Clover's friend Zoe ... but for me it was really more about her best friend Eric. It's a classic unrequited love story.
He's loved her forever.
She's pretty oblivious.
Been there, done that ... may actually be doing it now.
It was quite similar in general feel and pacing to ANYLS, and I got to see Clover and Cade again which was awesome ... but I couldn't find myself as into this one. Maybe it hit a little too close to home with the Eric similarities while also feeling a little too "yeah ... right ... never going to happen" all at the same time.
I think maybe I'll go back to serial killers for a while.

  1. Yes... when I feel that reality is too rough, I tend to go for space opera and aliens. Reading is my comfort blanket and I'm DETERMINED it will be a comfort! So I completely understand why serial killers have such appeal.
