Review: Crazy Good

Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.

Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.

Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.

She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…

The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.

Crazy people perish for love.

Good people live for it.

Love doesn’t die. No matter how many bullets you put in it.

I did not like it at all. I mean there were some good parts but mostly it felt like such a huge task to finish it it felt like a burden. When I was reading the sentence “show, don’t tell” kept playing in my mind. I felt like that was the line Rachel Robison should’ve followed a little more closely.

First of all, I was so stupid I didn’t realise this was part one of a series. Which doesn’t necessarily mean anything but then it is a good chance the book ends in a cliffhanger and this does. I really don’t like it when books do that. In my opinion, there should be hints of something and questions left answered so that the reader can be satisfied with the book but still buy the second part. Especially since in the beginning there was one cliffhanger before jumping to the start of a story. It means in the following books there’s probably more cliffhangers. Ugh.

Maverick. The leading guy. He wasn’t a convincing character at all. It shone from miles away that he was a male character written by a woman who tried to make him the perfect man for women readers. Even his “flaws” were perfect. Of course he had lots of women and was good looking and loved Windsor fiercely and blah blah blah… His inner musings were so boring I had to skip parts and his thoughts sounded exactly like woman trying to describe man’s thoughts. And he was described as this bad ass alpha male but he got jealous way too easily and his reactions were over the top.

Windsor. You’re just waiting for the nickname Winnie bear. It came surprisingly late. Windsor was more likeable and believable than Maverick but still a laborious character. She freaked out about everything. I get that the author wanted some drama but Windsor’s reactions were over the top just like Maverick’s. She saw Maverick talking to girls in a bar after they’d been on a couple of dates and she freaked out so bad she moved out of her apartment so Maverick wouldn’t found her. All her emotions were heightened too much.

I wouldn’t recommend reading this, even if you get it for free. The world is full of good books and you shouldn’t be wasting time on this one.
