Rule #1: Do not fall for your brother’s best friend.
Rule # 2: Absolutely do not fall for your brother’s best friend.
Rule # 3: Don’t break the rules. 


Jackson Stone is hot—like burn-down-buildings kind of hot. He’s also my brother’s best friend, and the memory of one kiss with him years ago still might get to me. Maybe. But, I am not looking for a second chance.

When I return to the small town of Stolen Hearts Valley, my life is a hot mess. I’m a few bucks shy of broke with nowhere else to go. My heart’s battered and bruised, and when it comes to romance, the door is nailed shut. 

But Jackson’s the kind of man women ruin panties over. Oh, and he's my roommate. Talk about too close for comfort.

When I’m at my most vulnerable, he pulls that whole knight-in-shining-armor thing. What can I say? He’s d*mn near impossible to resist.


Shay Martin is my best friend’s little sister. And she’s so hot she nearly sets me on fire. 

She’s a walking complication, and I don’t do complications. But I can’t seem to stay away from her. It doesn't help that her bedroom is across the hall from mine.

Every look, every kiss, every touch nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t keep my balance, much less think. Before I know it, I’ll do anything for her. Complications be d*mned.

*This is a full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

    4 1/2 Stars This crazy love Jh croix Shay was pretty raw and broken when she landed on Jackson’s ranch after running out on most of her options. Physically and emotionally abused by her first but ex boyfriend and publicly harassed due to his famous politician father, Shaw was exhausted and beaten. Jackson had demons of his own to battle. The last thing he was prepared for was his intense attraction to his best friend’s kid sister. With slow to moderate pacing, the author took the time to develop the main characters and their growing romance. I appreciated the lack of cheating and unneeded drama. A very satisfying HEA rounded out this well written book. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book via Bad Boy Updates.

    This author never fails to deliver seriously hot and swoon-worthy story! It was a great start for the new series and I can’t wait for more! Shay and Jackson’s story was field with emotions, personal growth and healing, and of course some steamy hot chemistry! They were both easily lovable characters that you can connect with and can’t help but root for their HEA. It was a truly enjoyable read and I gladly recommend it! I received an ARC of this book from “Bad Boy Update” and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

    Jackson and Shay’s story just stole my heart. Their chemistry and raw need for each other is so powerful that neither of them know what to do with the feelings that develop between them. Shay came to Jackson running from her past. She needed a safe place to land. Jackson doesn’t think love is ever in the cards for him. His demons from the military haunt him daily. The unexpected new relationship is everything they never thought they could have Love, Peace, Family and a future of happiness. I voluntarily received this arc from Bad Boy Update for an honest review.

    This Crazy Love is the first book in the Swoon series by J H Croix set on a ranch in the North Carolina mountains. This book is an excellent start with well written character development that you really enjoy reading and getting to know them. Shay comes to the ranch of her brothers best friend Jackson to heal after a well publicized abusive relationship. Jackson also has demons of his own from being in the military but they are both instantly attracted to each other. This book is swoon worthy and definitely worth reading.
