Paxton Stewart… The boy I spent my entire childhood pining after.He never saw me of course.To him I was just a child. His best friend’s baby sister. A silly little girl.
Until I wasn’t anymore…I thought I could be the one to change him. The one to tame him.
Instead, I became one of the many broken hearts he left in his path.I didn’t run away. I had planned to leave all along.
But what I didn’t plan for was how I would feel returning all these years later.
One look and it all came back.One look and suddenly I remembered everything…
Every word. Every kiss. Every touch.
Even after everything he put me through; Paxton Stewart still owns my heart.
The only question remaining is what he plans to do with it now…
Crazy Stupid Perfection is the third of three standalone novels in the Crazy Love Series
Disclaimer: This is the third in the Inter-Connected Standalone Books in Crazy Love Series.
There is something wonderful about reading a second chance romance, but it definitely becomes a whole lot better, when it is about the First Crush or even First Love of a character! It reminds you of a simpler time, when love wasn’t influenced by reality nor by practicality!
Crazy Stupid Perfection is one such romance – and it was one beauty of a ride!
Charlie Porter, just left her life in New York to return to her home in Portland. While she has her family almost convinced that there was nothing quite drastic about her decision; she is in fact running away from something quite painful. The last thing she expected was to run into her brother’s best friend, Paxton Stewart, the one boy who held her heart as a teenager and the man who broke it into million pieces years later.
Paxton Stewart, on other hand, also ran away from Portland years before – not only to go back home to his mother, but also to get away from the one girl who has always held his heart. Now that he is back, trying to pick up the pieces of his life, he is rocked again by the “one who got away” – and this time he isn’t sure if he is strong enough to actually do the right thing.
Both embark on a foolish craziness of “secret relationships” but when hearts are involved, nothing ever really goes to plan, now does it?
This one however does fall into the “New Adult Trap”, the way I like to call it – mostly because the author doesn’t give them time to grow into mature adults – adults who know the meaning of the word “responsibility”; and that’s exactly what happens here – I sorely wished that the way the author took the plot could have been handled a little better – but then again that’s the way I thought from 84% to 90% of the book. Also, communication; how hard could that have been?
This was my first Melissa Toppen book, and it was such a fun crazy ride – there is humor, immaturity, amazingly scorching chemistry and definitely a full rounded plot with well-established secondary characteristics. Definitely going to check out the rest of the books for sure! ❤
