Title: Crazy Stupid Love
Author: KL Grayson
Series: Dirty Dicks #3, a standalone
Release Date: June 20, 2018
There’s a special place in hell for a man like me—a man who shamelessly sleeps with his best friend’s little sister, knowing he’ll never be what she needs. A man who takes because the only thing he has to offer in return is a broken past that’s destined to destroy his future.

I was the kid who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks with shit parents and clothes that had been handed down one too many times. I stole to feed my sister, fought to protect her, and I’ll always be the guy your parents don’t want you to bring home.

So yeah, that’s me. Lincoln Bennett. Adley Allen’s walk on the wild side. Her dirty little secret. And I’m okay with that—ninety-nine percent of the time. Unfortunately today is in that one percent when it doesn’t sit well with me. For some strange reason, I want to be around to celebrate all of Adley’s successes. I want to be here when she gets her first job and take her out to dinner after her first shift. I want to be the one she depends on, the person she calls when she has a bad day. Or a great day. Or any kind of day.

I want more than her body. I want her heart. But men like me don’t get women like her.

At least not to keep.

Perfectly angsty and swoon-worthy! Crazy Stupid Love is KL Grayson at her best. I thought I was in love when I read Crazy Hot Love, but THIS book, the best friend's little sister trope? I was a FREAKING GONER! Lincoln and Adley are crazy stupid. Crazy stupid for thinking a fling wouldn't be a messy entanglement. Crazy stupid for every moment of denial they tried to believe in. And crazy stupid IN LOVE. These two are just sublimely sweet with off-the-charts chemistry. I mean seriously? If there's a real-life Lincoln out there somewhere, I call dibs SO. FREAKING. HARD. 

But while these two are wildly perfect for each other, Lincoln's past of a more than screwed up family dictates a lot of his actions in his relationships, and especially with sweet Adley. He can't risk ruining her for myriad of reasons, the first and foremost being she's the only woman who's made him want more. And while Adley works her spitfire damnedness to make this work, there's one hurdle even she can't get them both over. It's up to Lincoln to finally put his demons to rest, or risk losing her and so much more. 

I can't say how much I enjoyed this book. It was amazing and I gobbled up every word of it. Lincoln and Adley's story far exceeded my expectations and as much of a suck as I am for the best friend's little sister trope, this book was no cookie cutter. It was unique from the very beginning, and I was blissfully sucked into the narrative. So, do I recommend this book? Heck yes, it's a book that I might need in signed print if I can get my hands on it, it's that special that it deserves a space on my bookshelf! 

Happy Reading!
