What is not to like about a friends with benefits relationship? Especially one that is so full of chemistry that you can't literally put it down? From the stand out cover to the attention grabbing synopsis, Crazy Beautiful will leave you wanting for more. Not having read other works by the author before, I was intrigued with the overall story and it didn't disappoint at all. At the beginning we get to meet Kinsley Moore, a self-determined entrepreneur who just signed a lease to her new house, one that she is eager to make a proper home/work space. Being a workaholic herself, Kinsley doesn't date much but a chance encounter with Lucas Graham changes everything. Their undeniable chemistry that brought them closer as friends, but it was evident right away that both of them wanted something more without the commitment part. It's Lucas that comes up with the plan to take their friendship to another level, but neither of them expected to feel so much more for one another. Now they'll have face their pasts in order to create a new future together.
I really enjoyed Lucas and Kinsley's chemistry, they both fit so well as a couple that it's hard to stop reading their funny and romantic scenes. The author did a good job creating a strong woman that knows exactly what she wants in terms of her career. What Kinsley lacks is the ability to have a life outside of work that we get more information on throughout the book. She has really fought her way to becoming the woman that she is today and that made her a very likable character. Lucas is a total sweetheart and hilarious! He is also very flirtatious and a workaholic who happens to know how to have fun. The minute he saw Kinsley, he knew that she was going to be his no matter what, and he made that happen. All in all, the story was sweet and full of steamy chemistry to keep you reading until the very end. I would highly recommend it! :)
