I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.
Sometimes you read a blurb and you get very curious about the story. This was one of those times!
I read the blurb and then I really wanted to read the story and I’m so glad that I did because this story was a nice surprise.
Mick (or Mickey like Raven likes to call him) was born in a trailer park. His mother wasn’t a great parent but he had a best friend there… Raven. They did everything together so it broke his heart when his father came to take him away from there but Mickey also knew that he had to get away from that terrible place if he wanted to have a good future for himself. But he made a promise to Raven that he would get her away from there. Now, fifteen years later Mick is still thinking about Raven and his promise to her. He is still feeling guilty for leaving her behind. So after another bad break-up with a girlfriend Mick decides that the time has come to look Raven up and to keep his promise to her.
Raven has never forgiven her childhood best friend Mickey for leaving her behind in the trailer park. Now, fifteen years later, she’s a single mother who’s still living in the trailer park. Raven is doing what she can to support her and her daughter but when you live in a small town there aren’t many opportunities or chances for good work. So Raven sells her body in the hope that she can give her young daughter Samantha a better life and future. The last thing that she expected was to see Mickey again and especially not in those circumstances!! When Mickey ask her to come with him, Raven says yes. And although she keeps telling herself that she made the right decision for her daughter, the real question is, did she make the right decision for her heart? Or will the grownup Mickey also break her heart like the young Mickey did? Only time can tell.
Okay, let me start by confessing that when I first met Mick/Mickey in the book that I wasn’t so convinced that I would like him. Because a manwhore and a cheater?!? That’s not really my ‘type’ of guy but I was willing to give it a try and I’m so glad that I did because the more I read, the more I fell for Mickey. Because this is one of those story where you know that once the guy find the right woman he will be faithful, loyal and wonderful to her. Raven was also a character that had to grow on me. But just like Mickey, the more I got to know her the more I liked her.
The story is told from both POV’s.
Although the story had some difficult themes in it, I didn’t find the story too heavy or too sad. The writer didn’t give us a dark story but a story about hope, forgiveness and love. Love that started between two children in a trailer park and a love they rediscovered as adults.
‘Crazy sexy notion’ was a good story and I’m already curious about the next story.
Loved it! I think Mickey is my new favorite Darlington BBF, next to Leo!
I’m not even sure how to go about describing this book or how exactly it made me feel! I’m kind of feeling like Raven and her dilemma with Mick~ “...if I ever actually saw Mickey again in my lifetime then I’d show him...I’d show him...Well...I still wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to show him.”
Crazy Sexy Notion is so different from Ms. Darlington’s previous books, but in a really good way! It’s funny and sexy and so freaking entertaining! It cracked me up, well Mickey cracked me up, honestly. He’s so intensely clueless, and he definitely won’t be for everyone, that’s for sure. I’m talking to you “safety girls” here on GR- he’s a cheater and an unapologetic manwhore, so this is your warning to just stay away from this book. But I loved him. I’ve read every book Sarah’s written and next to Leo freaking Maddox, Mickey Lawson is my favorite bbf of hers. He’s got some quirks, he goes about things in completely the wrong way, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t think before he acts most of the time, but his heart is in the right place.
”Raven, pack a bag. I’m here to take you home.”
Mick takes it upon himself, after 15 years, to go save his childhood best friend, Raven. The thing of it is, he doesn’t even know if she needs saving! He’s been feeling guilty for having left her in the crappy trailer park they grew up in all those years ago, and gets this “notion” in his head that he needs to go get her. He was 10 years old when he left, just a kid, so there’s really nothing he could have done at the time, but this is something he needs to do for himself, and once he’s made up his mind there’s no turning back.
”But touching her, no matter how miniscule the touch had been, felt like...everything. The closest thing to something real I’d ever felt in my life.”
What follows is a delightfully amusing tale that had me laughing, shaking my head, and rooting for these 2 oddball characters. Crazy Sexy Notion is an unconventional love story of two long lost best friends that kept me engaged from start to finish.
I really wanted to not like Mickey because the book starts out with him being a cheater. But as the book goes along I can't help but love him. I can't help but love his heart. We learn the only women he ever truly loved was Raven. He even goes to find her as an adult and rescues her from the life she was leading. She was a hooker and she had a 7 year old daughter. While life had been good to Mickey, it hadn't been to Raven. But I loved her character. She was strong and feisty. And the banter between Mickey & her was great.
This is a story of true love. But it's not a life is perfect story. This story is real. Sometimes life makes it hard on you. And sometimes people make decisions just to survive. But love can heal all. It may not be easy to heal and trust but in the end it's worth it.
I recommend this story to romance fans (some hot scenes!), friends to lover fans & anyone who loves a good healing story.
