Tameeka Johnson and Stacie Long have been friends forever and roommates for years. Stacie is tall and attractive and keeps a "what I want in a man" list. Tameeka is a full-figured woman who has opened her own wellness shop, Heaven on Earth. These women are as different in looks and goals as they are in trying to catch the right man. When Tameeka finds romance with Tyrell, she struggles with a personality flaw that may ruin her chances with him. Stacie is looking so hard for the man with a six-figure salary and luxury vehicle that she may overlook the real qualities of a good mate. When Tameeka and Tyrell convince Stacie and Jackson, a single father, to go on a blind date, the sparks fly. Their insults only fuel and mask the true attraction they have for one another. When they discover how much they really do like one another, the relationship takes a turn. Both women are forced to deal with their insecurities and secrets in this funny and scandalous story about love. Lillian Lewis

In Crazy Love, Day works with a time-worn theme, but she spices it with her own unique spin. Day gives the reader a storyline that is refreshing, strong, edgy and energetic. She presents well-developed, three dimensional characters, who, despite there idiosyncrasies are likeable divas. The characters, whether primary or secondary, are richly drawn, mature and deal with situations in an adult-like manner without a lot of drama. I enjoyed the interaction between, main characters, Tameeka and Stacie and liked that their friendship was realistically portrayed. Just as in real life, their friendship was not always smooth sailing. At times arguments ensued, feelings were hurt, words were spoken that evoked anger and riled tempers, and their friendship was tested. I, also, enjoyed that there were sub-plots involving relationships with secondary characters that were intricate to the plot.
Crazy Love is a compelling and witty novel and a step above most contemporary fiction reads. Day has given us a familiar theme, but, what sets Crazy Love apart from other novels with similar themes is the writing. Strong storytelling skills allow Day to craft a book which shows rather than tells, exhibits balance between the narrative voice and dialogue, and does not rely on raunchy sex scenes or excessive cursing to deliver the plot. Erotic scenes and snappy dialogue are strategically placed throughout the book, but their delivery is not over the top. Day's new novel is filled with surprising and shocking twists and turns, and her edgy style and fluid pacing will keep you quickly turning the pages. I look forward to reading future releases from this shining star.
In CRAZY LOVE, first time novelist Desiree Day delivers an interesting and witty tale of two friends searching for Mr. Right. Tameeka and Stacey have been best friends for as long as they can remember and share many memories. Although they share a special bond, they long to find that one special person. Unfortunately, the baggage that they carry may prevent them from finding the perfect mate.
Tameeka Johnson is a successful businesswoman who owns one of Atlanta's top wellness shops. Although her business is a success, her love life is a failure due to her low self-esteem. Tameeka is a full-figured woman who doesn't believe that any man can be attracted to her. When she finally meets a wonderful man who promises to love her and treat her like a queen (large size and all), the insecurities resurface. Can Tameeka overcome her self-esteem issues and take a chance at love?
Stacey Long can best be described by one word---DIVA. In her opinion, she is God's gift to men which makes her deserving of only the best. In her quest for the best, she develops a long list of qualifications a man must possess to be worthy of her time. For example, he must be a "freak in bed" and he must "make at least $80K." For Stacey, her list is sacred and she will not deviate from it. However, things change when she meets Jackson, a sexy single father with his own list of issues. Although Stacey is full of
self-confidence, she has a secret that even her best friend doesn't know about. Will her secret prevent her from pursuing Mr. Right?
CRAZY LOVE is about relationships and the journey two friends take searching for true love. Desiree Day adds spice to a familiar theme. She delivers a well written storyline with likable characters. CRAZY LOVE is filled with drama and surprises which will keep the reader's attention from the beginning to the end.

"Crazy Love" is a great book. It highlights some of the common problems and concerns that everyday people encounter in relationships. Stacey's ideals about what the perfect man were all wrong. She learns this through her relationship with Jackson. She matures alot and learns alot about herself. I reallly enjoyed reading about Stacey's issues and how she learns to resolve her past and present. Tameeka's character was not as strong but it was realistic. Tameeka seemed to be the character that I thought would find long lasting love and it turns out that she did not. Overall, it was a great read and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers.
