Crazy Beautiful Love (The Martelli Brothers #1) by J.S. Cooper
Crazy Beautiful Love (The Martelli Brothers)
This is not the typical bad boy meets good girl story.
Logan Martelli is a bad boy. He's handsome, sexy, and knows what he wants. He steals cars. He doesn't do relationships. And he has the hottest green eyes in River Valley.
Maddie Wright is a good girl with a wild streak. She's confident, strong, and goes after whatever or whoever she wants. And Maddie wants Logan Martelli with a passion.
One fateful night brings Logan and Maddie together and electricity sparks between them. Maddie and Logan make a real connection, but when Logan finds out who she is, he wants nothing to do with her. However, he soon realizes he can get the ultimate revenge for his family if he continues to date Maddie. The problem is he's starting to fall for Maddie, and he knows that a relationship will mess up everything.
Logan has to decide if revenge is worth losing his one shot at real love. What price will he pay if he betrays the one woman who may finally see behind his bad boy image?
This book was interesting. Not the worst book I have read, but not really good either. The book starts off with Maggie trying to steal a cop car, running into Logan and the instant connection between the two. Maggie was a little crazy, and Logan was...well he wasn't bad. Everyone thinks he is a bad kid, but he is really not that bad. Just in a bad situation and trying to get his brothers out of it even if he cannot escape it. I did like Logan, though I don't really know why Maggie stuck around through his indecision. I didn't really see the connection between the two of them so that was one of the issues of the book.
Another issue was the conversations felt a little forced and not like people would really talk. Plus they were used to just recap everything and which made them feel really flat.
The last issue I had was everything wrapped up way too easily. Like Maggie loved her father, then suddenly it seemed like oh no he is a bad guy so let's get him! How they took him down so easily was just...well it didn't seem feasible that everything would just work out suddenly. It was just a bit to much.
