Book Review – Crazy for Her by Sandra Owens (*Spoilers)

Goodreads Summary

When his best friend and fellow Navy SEAL, Evan Prescott, died in his arms on the battlefield, Logan Kincaid gave his word to watch over Evan’s widow. But for two years he kept his distance…torn between honoring his solemn vow and succumbing to his secret love for his fallen comrade’s crazy-for-herwife. But when Dani Prescott desperately reaches out to Logan for the help only he can give, he rushes to her side—determined to fight for her safety as fiercely as he fights against his own buried desire.

Someone claiming to be her husband is stalking Dani and her infant daughter, making them virtually prisoners in their remote country home. Logan’s elite military training and high-risk security expertise have outmatched more dangerous enemies. But the real challenge will be the burning temptation that threatens to overcome Logan whenever Dani is near…especially when she reveals her own hidden passion.

Review

Ok, I’m going to tell you up front that there will be a spoiler in this review.  I am sorry, I can’t help it.

Crazy for Her is the story of Dani Prescott, whose husband Evan died in the war.  His best friend, Logan Kincaid, promised Evan he would take care of Dani as he lay dying in his arms.  He also tells Logan that Dani is pregnant.

Fast forward two years (I think).  Dani calls on Logan because she has a stalker.  Logan comes to her aid – because he’s been secretly in love with her forever.  You see, Logan was with Evan when he met Dani – but he let his friend have her (so noble).  Dani is taking care of her baby, who can say words (but is still being breastfeed; so the baby is a genius or the mom doesn’t want to stop breastfeeding).  Slowly, Logan’s resolve begins to diminish where it comes to Dani.

Ok, this is where I’m going to get spoily.  At the 42% mark of the book, Logan reveals that HE IS A VIRGIN.  I literally laughed out loud.  31 years old, hunky Navy Seal and he’s a virgin.  Why?  Well, he has “dirty blood”.  See, his mom was a druggy whore, who brought different men home every night.  Logan was afraid he was tainted.  If that’s not dumb enough…..

It turns out Dani’s stalker is her dead husband’s twin brother, whom he didn’t know he had, whom is in a cult.  Yes, that’s right.  Just so dumb.  I liked Logan’s sister Maria, who the next book is about, so I’m going to give that book a try.  If it’s as bad as this one, I won’t read on.

Happy reading.
