Blurb by Goodreads
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.

After reading the first 2 books in The Crooked Creek Ranch series and they were only 2 stars - ok for me because the characters are so hateful. I thought I would give this series one more chance and was really hoping Crazy Thing Called Love would have better characters that were some what nice. Did not happen. Right at the beginning I could not connect with Billy who seriously needs anger management. I really wanted to feel Madelyn’s pain when she decides to give Billy another chance at the beginning of their marriage when she caught him with girls in his hotel room but for me the writing was a bit flat. Not a lot of detail on why their marriage was bad. I just assumed since she has to play babysitter while he is playing hockey so he does not cheat on her, took it as why it was bad. Even the secondary characters are not nice. Her supposed friend sets up the deal with Billy getting his make over. Did not care how it was going to affect Madelyn because it was just business. Crazy Kind Of Love has a sexy cover with an interesting synopsis but for me it was just Ok - 2 stars. I am so bummed I could not connect with any of this series characters and will not be reading anymore.
