Product Description

Contemporary Romance Novel/Romantic Comedy

She's Tofu. A lovely nineties-style flower child, Tasha Smith enjoys her laid-back life at the shop where she sells organize fruits and vegetables, even though lately she's been in a funk over a broken engagement. Determined to shake her blues, she heads down to a resort in sunny Jamaica, and along the way, hooks up with a most unlikely companion--a workaholic salesman who has no idea how sexy he looks in his Brooks Brothers suit!

He's Beefsteak. Andrew Jacob Powel III reluctantly heads to Jamaica after winning the trip for high salesman of the month. He figures while there, he'll handout business cards and make some new connections. But when he connects with Tasha, his professional poise begins a slow unraveling. She is at turns enchanting and exasperating--and adorably determined to tease him out of his conservative shell, not to mention that Brooks Brothers suit.

Even as a sultry passion takes them both by surprise, Andrew and Tasha know they'll have to return to their very different lives--but their hearts keep telling them they belong together. And hearts never lie...

From the Author

Tofu and enticing combination?
Hi romance readers,I'm pleased to share my fourth romance title with you. CRAZY FOR YOU, however, is the first book I've written under my pen name, Maddie James. Some of you may have read other books by me under the name of Kim Whalen for Zebra's Precious Gems line. I hope you enjoy Tasha and Andrew's romp through sunny Jamaica, even though nothing seems to go Andrew's way! Except in the end, of course. And then it goes both their ways. Tasha is a headstrong individualist and quite the nineties flower child. Andrew is suffering from a perpetual case of conservative work-a-holic. With opposites like that, how can there not be an attraction? I'll just let you read for yourself and find out how that happens.Hope you enjoy! And be looking for my next Zebra Bouquet entitled FALLING FOR GRACE, in July of 2000. It proves to have its wacky moments, as well.Take care and remember: life is always better with a little romance. : ) Maddie

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 10 Oct 2011
By Gem - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How would like to be given a trip to a tropical resort and upon your arrival find out that 'au natural' meant nude. Put a wacky hippie type woman and a straight-laced businessman into the same plane, same resort and all kinds of things happen. People will wonder what you are chuckling about. Can you fall in love in one week? Can you change your total lifestyle for someone? I definitely recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute romance with lots of laughter and conflict. 17 Nov 2011
By Romancing the Book - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Review by JoAnne: This was a cute romance that had lots of laughter and conflict and even a few teary eyed moments. Andrew and Tasha don't set out to find love but they keep getting thrown together in some hard to believe ways. As they get to know each other and spend some time alone while in a resort in Jamaica they end up falling in love which is what neither one wanted. As one is able to make peace with it, the other isn't and runs away. Ultimately there is a happy ending but it took longer to reach than I would have thought. It also wasn't what I would have guessed to be the resolution of getting them together but I was pleased with the result. I've read other books by Maddie James and while this wasn't my favorite of hers it did draw you in and keep me interested in the story without trying too hard. If you're looking for a lighthearted and quick read this would be a good book for you. After reading it you might also like James enough to read some of her other books.

Favorite Quote: "Taking her chin in his hand again, he forced her to look at him. His voice was soft, alluring and calming, but his words held a venom that frightened her. "Tell me you don't love me, Tasha. Say the words. Then I will leave here and forget all of this. I'll forget you. Tell me, because that's the only way I will do it Otherwise, I'll never believe you don't want me. And I won't give up hope, Tasha. Until I hear the words, I will never give up hope.""

Wow what a ride this one was!! This is probably one of the funniest romances I have read in a long while.

It really kept me gasping with laughter and feeling really sorry for poor Andrew. He was hit by a force of nature and left in a whirl. It was like nothing I have read before. Tasha, Moontasha Begonia Smith if you will, was a child of the flower power child gone berserk and Andrew Jacob Powell III was the epitome of Republican Conservative America.

She literally made Andrew CRAZY with her attitudes and her politics which were polar opposites in all respects, but "the heart wants what the heart wants," and this combination wanted each other.

I loved and I think you will too.

Read, Laugh, Gasp and love it as much as I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 8 Nov 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Some people just need a good "thunk" to the head to put them on the right path. Luckily for Andrew, there's Tasha. Luckily for Tasha, there's Andrew. While they are, unfortunately, stereotypical of romance characters, they are quite fortunate in that their actions are governed by the twisting and turning of author Maddie James' imagination.

The tropical location and bus strike provided the basis for the eccentric quirks of fate that led Andrew to Tasha. True, his character's paranoia and suspicion also played into the plot quite a bit, but that just kept things interesting.

Meanwhile, Tasha has those overwhelming urges. You know the ones - mother instinct to protect and help the poor introverted man to "blossom", all the while fighting off the not so maternal sexual attraction that no good romance is without.

This is not the story of a grand romance. It is, however, a fun and lively story that can fulfill those moments when you need something lighthearted to read. (Well, if making a vehicle go off the side of a cliff can be termed "lighthearted".) You can tell the author has a vivid imagination and a unique sense of humor. These qualities kept the story from being run-of-the-mill and trite. They are also what kept me reading.

Grab a copy of the story and keep it on your e-reader for those times when you "just need something . . . " You won't be sorry you did.
