No one writes "good scary fun" (The Washington Post) better than New York Times best-selling master of psychological suspense Lisa Unger. With more than 1.7 million books sold in more than thirty countries, it's clear why USA TODAY declared that her thrillers "should be on everyone's to-read list."
Falling in love can feel like a dream - or a living nightmare.
Darkness has a way of creeping up when Ian is with Priss. Even when they were kids, playing in the woods of their small Upstate New York town, he could feel it. Still, Priss was his best friend, his salvation from the bullies who called him "loser" and "fatboy" - and from his family's deadly secrets.
Now that they've both escaped to New York City, Ian no longer inhabits the tortured shell of his childhood. He is a talented and successful graphic novelist, and Priss - Priss is still trouble. The booze, the drugs, the sex... Ian is growing tired of late nights together trying to keep the past at bay. Especially now that he's met sweet, beautiful Megan, whose love makes him want to change for the better. But Priss doesn't like change. Change makes her angry. And when Priss is angry, terrible things begin to happen.

Lisa Unger's titles have been hit and miss for me in the past. I didn't care much for her book Fragile, however, I absolutely loved her novella series, The Whispers. Crazy Love You totally fell into the hit category for me!
If you are looking for a story that will take you way beyond the depths of your imagination, you will find it with this title! There is nothing about this title that is normal, from the characters to the story, but it's not a confusing crazy, but more of an entertaining, keep you guessing kind of crazy.
I honestly couldn't tell you, throughout the entire story, what was going to happen next. Every time that I thought that I had what was going on figured out, something totally different and drastic happened! I think that Unger cleverly wrote this title. It is unique and I've never read anything like it!
The narrator, Jeremy Bobb couldn't have been a better fit for this story. He kept a good, smooth flowing pace, changed his voice adequately for each character, and showed the high and low points throughout the story! Stellar performance from the narrator!
Overall, I must say that Crazy Love You is like none other, and if for nothing else, this garners a higher rating in my book! I'm sure that the more titles that come out, the harder it gets to be creatively unique, but I think that Lisa Unger hit the nail on the head with this one!
