Review: Crazy in Love (A Love & Harmony Romance #1) by Crystal B. Bright

R&B singer Chantel Evans had it all, until the Princess of Love Ballads lost everything. First, a very public betrayal by her lover and the death of her mother lead to a career-ending mental breakdown. Then, at the same time, her attorney makes off with all her hard-earned fortune. The only chance she has of resurrecting her career is in the recording studio her mother left in her name . . .

When struggling country star Truman Woodley has his recording duet with a sultry young singer fall flat at Chantel’s studio, Chantel is faced with a rare second chance—until Truman’s vindictive ex-girlfriend turns the pair’s sparkling debut into grounds for a custody battle over their son. But Chantel has discovered more than sweet vocal harmony with Truman. She’s found something worth fighting for. And when Truman surprises her with a kiss after a live television performance, the whole world will find out just what it takes to be crazy in love . .

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

I have to admit that I have some mixed feelings on this story.  On the one hand it was a wonderful story about self discovery and finding ones way after everything has fallen apart.  On the other hand, I just didn't feel all of the characters.

I will start with Truman.  While he redeemed himself in the end, I found I couldn't really get on board with him.  The way he was so quick to lay judgement on Chantel at the beginning of the story got under my skin and made it hard for me to root for him.  While his love for his son was evident, I really feel like he didn't have his priorities straight.

On the flip side, I was behind Chantel from the very beginning.  It was clear that there was a journey that she was required to take in order to gain confidence and discover who she truly was.  This was fun to read as it showed a character who was willing (eventually) to fight for herself.  She was why I kept reading the story.

At the end of the day this story was about opposites attract, and learning about oneself.  While the story was ok for me, it lacked the wow factor I was expecting.
