Crazy for You by Rachel

She’s taking a walk on HIS wild side!

CrazyForYou_coverEmma Rush can’t remember a time when she didn’t have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven’s
resident bad boy is just so freakin’ hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges
sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma’s over being a “good girl,” she needs a little help being naughty . . . and she knows just where to start.

 Before Emma’s brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything–including himself. When her brother doesn’t come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he’s still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can’t stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take . . .

Oh how I loved Emma and Ryan! I love a good friends to lovers book and Crazy for You is full of flirty, sexy, adventure and fun.
Emma and Ryan have known each other for years. Ryan was Emma’s brother Derek’s best friend and she can hardly remember a time that Ryan wasn’t in her life. Ryan made a promise to always watch over Emma for Derek. And when Derek didn’t come home from his last mission in Afghanistan, Ryan really felt like it was his place to be Emma’s protector. But when was it was Emma stopped being the little tomboy that followed them around like a little puppy and turned into this sexy woman that was flirty with him at the bar?
Emma is tired of living a “boring” life. So when her friend dare her to step out of her comfort zone and flirt with the first guy to wipe the ketchup they placed on her cheek, away, she never expected it to the Ryan. And why not try and flirt with the sexy friend of her brother. She’d had a crush on him for as long as she can remember and he was the total opposite of any guy she had ever dated in the past. But can she convince Ryan to take a chance on them and step out of this ridiculous promise he made her brother years ago?
Emma is full of fire and ready to challenge Ryan. And Ryan is sweet and honorable and just as turned on my the aspect of being with Emma. These two together are fun and hot and everything you look for in a good hero/heroine in a book. There banter is free and flirty since they’ve known each other all their lives and the taboo of being with your brother’s friend give the book the right kind of spice to make you giddy at their evolution of becoming more than friends.
Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. I will definitely be going back and reading the rest in the series and can’t wait for book three!

Whoa. Emma closed her eyes and let out a shriek as Ryan guided the motorcycle onto Main Street and picked up speed. The cold wind whipped her face, taking her breath away. Beneath her, the engine rumbled and roared like a wild thing. Holy sh*t. She was on the back of Ryan Blake’s bike, and it was amazing.

The wind bit through her thin, knit gloves, hitting her fingers with an icy blast. Actually, every part of her was freezing, but she didn’t care. She wrapped her arms more firmly around Ryan’s waist, anchoring herself to him so she didn’t tumble off the back of the bike, and somehow her hands slipped beneath his jacket. Ahh. That was better. Toasty warm, and also…her hands were on his T-shirt. Even through her gloves, she felt the hard contour of his abs, and nope, she wasn’t cold now.

And this was absolutely freaking amazing.

She hung on tight as he guided them over Haven’s twisting mountain roads, deserted at this hour. Overhead the moon shone like a beacon, illuminating the night in its soft, silvery glow. The roar of the engine and the slap of the wind against her face shocked her senses. It was thrilling, invigorating, so completely different from riding inside a car.

She’d never have done this if Mandy hadn’t dared her, and now she felt like her eyes were open for the first time in years. This was what she needed. Somewhere along the way, as she sat at the bar talking to Ryan, she’d realized she was having fun, really having fun. And she wanted more. She wanted it all, every last wild and crazy fantasy.

All too soon, her building came into view. Ryan cut the engine and guided them quietly into the driveway, coming to a stop behind her silver Toyota RAV4. He turned his head to look at her, so sexy in his helmet and riding glasses. “So how was it?”

“Even better than I thought it would be.” She gulped for air. His lips were way too close to hers, and she was still a little bit drunk on beer and a whole lot drunk on her first motorcycle ride. Mandy’s words echoed in her ears. Bonus points if you kiss him. Just stand up a bit, lean over his shoulder, and…

Emma leaned forward, her chest sliding up his back as she tipped her face to his. Holy hell, she had completely lost her mind, but she was going for it. Every nerve in her body went haywire.

Clunk. Her helmet smacked into his, drawing her up an inch short of his lips.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I loved writing all the fun, adventurous things Ryan and Emma did together in CRAZY FOR YOU – rock climbing, cliff jumping, motorcycle rides, etc. They were so much fun to write, and it was the perfect balance to some of the heavier themes in the book. These two characters really bring out the best in each other, constantly pushing each other out of their comfort zones.

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

Dream On by Aerosmith – “Dream until your dreams come true!”

Name one thing you won’t leave home without.

Chapstick! I have a weird obsession with it.

A la Twitter style, please describe your book in 140 characters or less.

If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?

First, JK Rowling because she is a literary genius and a fierce feminist, and I’d love to chat with her about anything and everything. Next, Mary Higgins Clark because she was my very first “favorite author,” and I’d love to thank her for that. And of course Nora Roberts because she is my hero and gives great advice. All three of these ladies have inspired me so much, and I would love to just soak up all the knowledge they could impart.

What are your favorite types of stories to read?

My favorite books make me laugh *and* cry. I want ALL THE FEELS while I’m reading!
