From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This is…

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.

I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.

Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards

I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.

Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.

The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.

It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

My Review

How can something so crazy be something so right?

How can a single tweet lead to something so unexpected…something that redefines who someone is?

For Evan Richards and Zara Stone, the mass hysteria and social media tizzy that ensues from Zara’s revenge twitter post throws both of them for a loop, but what it also does is give them an opportunity to become something together that Evan never knew he wanted and Zara never thought she’d find after getting her heartbroken so thoroughly.

Boy do I adore these Stone twins! They have the best kind of relationship and they share a connection that no one can sever. In her own right, Zara is such a kickass heroine, not only because she’s one half of the troublemaking partnership with her twin sister, but also because she’s feisty and headstrong in her own right. She’s quite the intelligent and savvy business woman and even though she’s a bit gunshy to start anything serious with Evan, she can’t help but want to be in his presence and see what they can be together.

Readers will most definitely fall in love with Evan. He is not a typical arrogant, hot headed professional athlete; he’s an all-around good guy who proves himself to Zara time and time again. And let me tell you, when his alpha male demeanor comes out, readers will be swooning over this amazing man.

It’s crazy to see everything play out between Evan and Zara, knowing why they crossed paths in the first place, but sometimes, all it takes is one insane act to bring something new and beautiful into one’s life, and that’s definitely what happens when Zara reaches out to Evan to ease the heartache that her ex caused.

The secondary characters – Evan and Zara’s family are friends – add a great dynamic to the story line, which also allows readers familiar with Natasha Madison’s Something So series to check in with the heroes and heroines who they fell in love with when the first series was released.

This is Crazy is a great start to Madison’s new sports romance spin-off series. It has all the components of an amazing love story, and I can’t wait for Zoe’s book!

About the Author

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
