Corny has her work cut out for her in Love Crazed, Book Four in The Corny Myers Series. Corny's excitement over serving on jury duty is squashed when she hears news of Steve's ex girlfriend relocating to Seattle. Steve's an aggressive, tough, Seattle narcotics cop who thinks Celeste could do no wrong.
Celeste is back in town and has set her sights on rekindling her relationship with Steve. Being an FBI agent, she's used to getting what she wants, no matter what the cost.
Corny is trying to keep her relationship from falling apart, while rescuing pets, and her friend from a loan shark.
This is the fourth book in the series and by far the most developed. There are still issues with a very immature dialogue, but the characters grow on you over the series.
The story feels more like a CW show and has some very cheesy moments. I have grown to love Corny and her friends, despite my complaints. This book gets a bit more into her business and her relationship with Steve. I was hoping for a bit more drama with the ex. That was solved way too quickly for my way of thinking.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Christy Williamson, who is not the right fit for this book. She has a very youthful voice that would be better suited for YA reads. While she has great energy, it only adds to the overall feel of immaturity in the story. This just wasn't the right pairing, it only served to highlight flaws. I would love to hear her on a younger read where her voice would be a real credit to the material.
It would be interesting to see this series revisited after the author has been around a bit longer. I can imagine it being expanded and improved greatly. She has great potential, a terrific concept and some really funny moments. I can see her work growing as she writes more. With all my complaints, I was still entertained and had a chuckle of two along the way.
