Series: Love with Altitude #2
Published by Self-Published on 03/28/2017
Crazy Over You is a standalone romantic comedy and the second book in the Love with Altitude series.
My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one-night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.
What happens on vacation doesn't always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.
I never thought I'd see her again.
My Cinderella didn't leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I'd need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I'll never forget.
Work hard. Play hard. I'm paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn't always about making good choices. That's the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

I’m a huge fan of Daisy Prescott’s and after reading this book, I can’t decide if maybe that’s a bit to her detriment. I have such high expectations where her books are concerned. She’s written some of my very favorites, so the bar is kind of high. Don’t misunderstand me, I really enjoyed this book, just not quite as much as I expected.
Crazy Over You is the story of Mara and Jesse, one that starts off with one of the best meet-cutes ever. There’s an awkwardness and a hilarity to their situation and I really enjoyed watching them navigate it. Mara is a vet with a voice that had me smirking through most of the story. But other than that, she was rather unremarkable. She didn’t really have any other characteristics that made her stand out. Not that there’s anything wrong with a book about a “normal” girl – on the contrary, I love and prefer them. But there was just something, some spark, that was missing in her personality. I like to feel some of what the love interest feels for them, you know?
On the other hand, Jesse was pretty swoon-worthy. He works as ski patrol, so he’s athletic and kind of hero-y. He’s also loves his dog with a ferocity that made me all mushy. He’s funny, sweet, and witty and I loved getting to know him. I could totally understand why Mara would be smitten with him.
This book started off very strong, and somewhere in the middle it kind of piddled off for me. They had quite the spark and I was really drawn into the story, but then their chemistry started to feel a little stale and stagnant. By the end, I felt kind of like I’d just watched an unmemorable chick flick. You know the kind I mean. It probably stars like Reese Witherspoon and you might watch it on cable if there’s nothing else on.
