The road to trouble is paved with sweet temptation…
Always the rebel in her ultra-conservative family, Quinn Sakata dreams of quitting her dad’s real-estate business and restoring the old Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast in her hometown of Hope Springs. Except that Quinn’s not the only person bidding on it. Worse still, her competitor is her high school crush, Heath Brantley, who is all kinds of ripped, tattooed hotness…
So much for her “nice, conservative boys” rule.
Heath has his own reasons for bidding on Mountain Ridge, and he won’t give in without a fight – even to the red-lipped hottie with a sailor’s mouth. But when their rivalry shifts into an unexpected zing of chemistry, Heath realizes he’s in deep trouble. Because it’s inevitable that emotions will get involved, and he needs to keep his eyes on the prize before they both get hurt.
Review by Lisa Markson
I received a galley copy of Crazy for the Competition from the author in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. I have to say that I really enjoy how this author is able to pull a reader into the storyline and hold them captive. She is a rare comodity in a author. Lately these days authors feel they need to put in lots of sex into a story in order for it to sell regardless on whether it is needed. This author is able to tell a beautiful and interesting story without the unnecessary sex. This is the type of story that can appeal to readers of all ages, I would even feel comfortable in allowing my niece who is 13 read this story. I love when I am able to share a great book with someone much younger than myself and get them into the world of reading. Books are meant to leave a mark on our imagination and provide a outlet sometimes against the harsh reality life can place us. Mrs. Madsen knows how to develop her characters and create a new dimension instilling real life qualities making the readers get invested in the storyline and want and need for them to have a HEA. I would highly recommend this story to anyone that wants and needs to believe in love and that there is a soulmate out there for themselves. Heath and Quinn didn’t start out as the perfect couple. They each wanted a certain property in which to complete their dreams. With the decision not being made they were sort of forced into spending lots of time together and they built a real friendship together. Through that friendship they were able to build their inner strengths and empower themselves into standing up for one another. I definitely can’t wait to read more from this author she is able to write in many different genre’s her YA series is fantastic also. So besides NA, Contemporary she has the great ability to write a romantic comedy like her book Cinderella Screwed Me Over which was fantastic. So you need to one click this book and you will not be disappointed.
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
