review || LOVING HER CRAZY { blitz } by Kira Archer

Entangled: Lovestruck | January 18, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Crazy Love, book 3


Iris Clayton is supposed to be on a tropical island, soaking up the sun and a few dozen mojitos. Instead, she’s snowbound in Chicago overnight, holding out hope the morning flight isn’t cancelled. Good thing there’s a hot cowboy to keep her company. And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Tall, Calm, and Sun-Streaked can make her tremble with one sultry look from under his well-worn hat.

Montana rancher Nash Wallace sucks at ice skating, has no clue what a selfie is, and may be a tad averse to breaking and entering, but being with Iris makes him want to bend a few rules. Or, hell, throw them out the window altogether. She’s fun, spontaneously crazy, and can rock a Muppet fur coat like no one’s business. He’s falling hard and fast, but wanting to spend his life with someone after one night is insane. 

Except, nothing has ever felt so right, and neither of them wants the night to end…

{ about kira archer } .

Kira Archer resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kiddos, and far too many animals in the house. She tends to laugh at inappropriate moments, break all the rules she gives her kids (but only when they aren't looking), and would rather be reading a book than doing almost anything else. She has odd, eclectic tastes in just about everything and often lets her imagination run away with her. She loves her romances a little playful, a lot sexy, and always with a happily ever after.

His lips descended, and Iris sank into him, molding herself to him as best she could through a million layers of clothes and the perils of the frozen danger zone beneath their feet. His lips were somehow soft and firm at the same time, and so exquisitely warm that she momentarily forgot that they stood in the middle of a frozen rink, snow falling all around them. Heat emanated from the lips caressing hers, spreading through her, making her burn for him. He pulled back for a second to cup her face in both his hands, and the cold air that swirled between them was shocking in its intensity. Then he was back, his mouth more insistent, his hands cradling her face. She opened to him, letting him explore, taste. He could have devoured her whole, and she would have willingly submitted.

Someone hooted in the background, but the noise was so faint she barely noticed. In that moment, there was nothing but him in her world. Nothing but that musk scent that she couldn’t identify but was so supremely Nash that she wanted to bottle it and swim in it every day for the rest of her life. Nothing but the heat that filled her from where his lips moved hungrily over hers, stealing her breath and, if she wasn’t careful, her heart. Good God, one kiss and she was addicted. She didn’t want to stop.

When he finally released her, she merely stared up at him, unable to do more than blink, stunned and reeling from the absolute best first kiss she’d ever had in her life. That was it. He’d fly out of her life the next day, and she’d have to become a nun because nothing, ever, was going to top that.

She should be embarrassed at her reaction, but Nash didn’t give her time to let that feeling take hold.

“Would it sound too unmanly of me to say wow?” he asked.

Iris laughed, a short burst of pent-up air exhaling in an eruption of happiness that made no sense to her. “Not at all,” she assured him. “Though I was thinking more along the lines of holy shit.”

He grinned and her stomach flip-flopped. What the hell was happening to her? Lust, she understood. And she was feeling plenty of that. If it wasn’t cold enough to freeze off the body parts she most wanted to take for a spin, she’d strip them both right here and do what they could to melt the rink they stood on. But this wasn’t just lust. She seemed to be in serious danger of going all Disney-princess—running amok in the park whilst singing of true love’s first kiss to all the furry little animals. And she was just not that kind of girl.

{ review } .

This book... While the timeline happens very quickly, it was so easy to forget. After being stranded on the runway for hours, feisty Iris leaned her seat back and started chatting to the cowboy behind her -- much to his seat neighbor's dismay, of course. Immediately the reader gets a sense of the fun banter these two would have the ability to perform.

And oh, did they.

Iris was everything Nash didn't typically date. His ex-fiance was a blond rodeo star and Iris is all dark pixie cut hair and dark eyes. But her mouth, her sass, her smile, her fun... she was infectious.

I loved watching these two explore the great Windy City. Having been there a number of times myself, it was extremely easy to picture what they were doing -- but regardless, the author does a great job of describing it all, so if the reader hasn't been to Chicago, they can still see in their minds what Nash and Iris are doing.

This was a cute, sweet, quick read, as are the books in the Loveswept line, but it was oh so enjoyable. I absolutely loved this story, and equally loved the How To Lose  A Guy romance. I very much enjoyed watching Lena's best friend try to get to her and her son, and loved the catching up we do with the previous characters of this series. Do you need to read the previous 2 books to enjoy this one? Not at all. But you may just be curious about them...
