ARC Review: Crazy in Love – SL Scott

Rating: 3 out of 5.


One Night Will Never Be Enough


We made a pact. One night.

No strings.
No attachments.
No numbers exchanged.

I caved and gave Harrison Decker my number anyway. He just chose not to use it.

Four years later, his job brings him back into my world looking more handsome than ever and now making an effort to befriend me. Is my heart willing to take another chance on that man?

Call me crazy or crazy in love. Either way, Iā€™m not falling for him. Again.


Like several other reviewers, I also struggled with the beginning of this book. It felt somewhat choppy and confusing between the two main characters and I think a lot of this stems from miscommunication between the hero and heroine. Just as the other reviewers mention, I’d also recommend persevering through the beginning because it does eventually pick up and make more sense.

Personally, I liked the writing and overall story more than the characters. After the beginning, Scott’s writing becomes easier to follow and the story kept my attention. However, what I struggled with were Tatum and Harrison. Both appeared to be smart, mature, well-adjusted individuals but when I read their POVs, I kept wondering why there was so much miscommunication between them – both in the past when they had their first one night stand, and in the present as they reconnect. I will admit though, at the time of writing this review, I seem to be in the minority on my thoughts towards the main characters as most readers seem to really love the hero and heroine, and their chemistry. So this could very well just be how I was feeling at the time of reading Crazy in Love.

As a reader who primarily enjoys character-driven stories, I found this one harder to enjoy overall. But if I focus on the overarching storyline and the author’s writing, I did actually like this book and decided to give it three stars.
