Title: Crazy Hot
Author: Tara Janzen
Year published: October 2005
Why did you get this book? This was a browsing purchase. I saw it on the shelf and the cover and title caught my attention, so I plucked it from the shelf, read the back and was hooked.
Do you like the cover? I do like it. And it obviously did what it was supposed to since it was the cover that first caught my eye.
Did you enjoy the book? Let me start by saying that before Crazy Hot, I’d never read a Tara Janzen or a Glenna McReynolds book before. But after devouring this one, I’ve ordered every one of her currently available books on Amazon, preordered her upcoming title, and am hunting down her oop titles—although I’m a completely picky reader and prefer new rather than used so I’m waiting to see if I can find mint condition copies. I LOVE Tara/Glenna. LOVE HER! She’s bloody brilliant! Crazy Hot is hand’s down the best book I’ve read all year. (Note to all the authors I edit at Samhain, do not take this personally. I’m strictly talking about pleasure reading here—and again, don’t take “pleasure” to mean I don’t find your books a pleasure, too. I do, but in this instance I’m talking about a book I had no connection in helping to release.)
Tara/Glenna has an amazing voice. I didn’t want to put the book down. I carried it with me around the house, read sentences between bites of breakfast cereal. The other day at the bookstore I started praising her books to readers browsing in the romance section. Does that make me a fangirl? If so, I’ll wear the crown (please tell me it comes with a crown?) with glee. I’m thankful I have four more books in her Crazy series to read because if I didn’t the wait until October 31 to get my hands on Crazy Sweet would be even more interminable.
Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? Brand new and hell yes!
Are you keeping it or passing it on? Keeping it. As if there was any doubt about that…
Anything else? A big thank you smooch to Tara Janzen for getting me out of a two month long reading slump!
