Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: New Adult/Erotic Romance

Paxton Stewart… The boy I spent my entire childhood pining after.
He never saw me of course.
To him I was just a child. His best friend’s baby sister. A silly little girl.
Until I wasn’t anymore…

I thought I could be the one to change him. The one to tame him.
Instead, I became one of the many broken hearts he left in his path.

I didn’t run away. I had planned to leave all along.
But what I didn’t plan for was how I would feel returning all these years later.

One look and it all came back.
One look and suddenly I remembered everything…
Every word. Every kiss. Every touch.

Even after everything he put me through; Paxton Stewart still owns my heart.
The only question remaining is what he plans to do with it now…

Crazy Stupid Perfection is the third of three standalone novels in the Crazy Love Series

One of my favorite tropes is the brother's best friend/best friend's brother, so I was super excited to read this book on that premise alone.  Now this is book three in a series, but it can be read as a stand alone (and that's what I did). 

Paxton and Charlie have known each other for a long time, as long as he's been her brother's best friend, and that's wherein the problem lies.  Paxton believes that his friend would not be happy if he knew the thoughts he'd been having about his sister. But Paxton hasn't been able to stop thinking about Charlie since she left town; something inside of him changed then. 

Charlie has been in love with Paxton forever, and she thought she could be the one for him, but left town with a broken heart. Now she's back and her feelings for Paxton are still front and center for her, but she doesn't want to get hurt again so she plans to ignore him as best as she can.  

You can read into the history of not only Charlie and Paxton but their group of friends as a whole within the pages of this book, there is a lot of love there among them, loyalty to each other, and a family made up of those most important.  The fact that the group felt this way really made it fit that Paxton felt pulled between two sides of himself, the side that doesn't want to mess anything up with the group, and the side that feels something more towards Charlie.  

I enjoyed watching as these two tried to figure it out, there was an undeniable chemistry there from the start, but also a strong desire to both be loved, but also to not be hurt.  I love how it all worked out, how Charlie's initial plan of 'ignore it and it will go away' never stood a chance of working.  I loved the added bit of drama that hiding a relationship (or trying to) builds, it made things a little more on the dangerous side, sneaking around, trying not to hurt anyone involved, it definitely had me hooked, just waiting to see when and if it would all fall down around them and what would happen.  

Crazy Stupid Perfection was a wonderful story, full of love and friendship. It was a story that made me laugh, that made me feel, and most of all it was a story that pulled me in and held me in its grasp wondering how it would all turn out and if these two would finally give in to the love between them or if they would continue to fight their feelings.  This book was one of the better books I've read within this trope and I recommend it to all.
