Sometimes I’m a really bad NetGalley reader. I didn’t read this book until it was actually published. But, I still enjoyed it and am grateful for NetGalley!
Crazy Little Thing Called Love is about Leila who has just gone through a particularly bad break up when she decides to give up dating for a year. Her friends and family mock her, but she opens up a blog and to everyone’s surprise it’s wildly successful. Leila is feeling strong as she makes new friends through her blog and corresponding events, until she meets Nick, her new sister-in-law’s older brother. Can she keep up with her “man ban”? Can their affection overcome some pretty terrible odds and circumstances?
It took me a really long time to get invested in Crazy Little Thing Called Love. I was not a fan of the writing style and I think that affected my ability to enjoy the story at first. However, I kept going and once I got sucked in, it was hard to put down. I appreciate that the characters, while not generally likable, are realistic, especially with how they handle conflict. I also enjoyed how Butterfield switched character viewpoints from time to time, although the story is mainly from Leila’s perspective. However, with the switch in character viewpoints, I do wish we heard Nick’s side of the story.
