Review: A Crazy Kind of Love (Flirting with Fame) by Mary Ann Marlowe

In this irresistible new novel by Mary Ann Marlowe, one woman’s up-close and sexy encounter with a tabloid sensation reveals the dizzying—and delicious—dilemma of dating in the spotlight . . .

Celebrities hold zero interest for photographer Jo Wilder. That’s a problem, since snapping pics of the stars is how the pretty paparazza pays the rent. So when Jo attempts to catch a money shot atop the broad shoulders of a helpful bystander, the only thing she notices about the stranger she straddles is that he’s seriously hot. Only later does Jo learn that he’s also Micah Sinclair—one of rock’s notorious bad boys…

Soon Jo is on the verge of getting fired for missing a Micah Sinclair exclusive. Until she’s suddenly being pursued by the heartthrob himself. But how can she be sure the musician’s mind-blowing kisses are the real deal? Her colleagues claim he’s a media whore, gambling on some free PR. But something has Jo hoping Micah’s feeling the same powerful pull that she does. A pull so strong, she can’t resist becoming his latest love, even if it means she might become the media’s latest victim . . .

This is a sweet, cute romance plain and simple! Jo is a paparazza making ends meet by stalking celebrities. She doesn’t like the job, but she needs health insurance right? She’d much rather do up close and personal photography, but until that happens, she is forced to do a job she feels is unethical. When she struggles to get a good photo op, a bystander helps her out by giving her a boost on his shoulders. After, she learns Micah, her helper, is the front man of a very popular rock band.

Soon, Micah is scouting out for Jo in the endless sea of paparazzi! Jo doesn’t know what to make of him. Is he just after additional publicity? Before you know it, Jo herself, is now the one being scooped! The stress of the notoriety, trying to figure out if Micah wants something from her, her boss pushing her for more scoops, and the unrelenting issue of being a diabetic is taking a toll on her. Can Micah and Jo find a happy medium where they can just be themselves in private??

I enjoyed this story! I thought the plot was original and it has an interesting viewpoint. I thought Jo and Micah were cute together and he seemed to really adore her. My problem? I didn’t feel any real heat between them. I didn’t feel their connection partly because I think Jo never really invested herself fully into the relationship until the very end. I understand her struggle with being a diabetic, as my sister is a type one too, and I have seen the effects first hand. Usually the pump adjusts that so the swings are less and less. I loved Micah from the start and he was all on charming with Jo. He truly wanted to care and protect her. Yes, he had reservations about dating a reporter, but he still jumped in with both feet! I give him kudos for it!

If rock stars are your thing, then I believe you would definitely enjoy this viewpoint on celebrities and the press!
