Crazy Gets Serious,
This review is from: Crazy Love (Mass Market Paperback)This is Book 5 in the Crazy Series that focuses on the SDF Team based at Steel Street, a chop shop that hired juvenile car thieves and turned them into sharp and lethal professionals working for the Government. The shop is a base for some serious muscle cars the team name and use throughout the story. We have been introduced to all of the characters in the previous books in the series but each book can be taken on it's own merit.
This book is Skeeter and Dylan's story. Skeeter Bang, kick-ass goddess and hacker extraordinaire, was brought to the chop shop by Christian "Superman" Hawkins when her father cracked a beer bottle over her head, causing a five inch gash that resulted in her having to receive a pint of Superman's blood to save her life. He moved her into Steel Street and set about training her to ensure that no-one ever hurt her again. She is now a sleekly-toned, mirrored-shades and baseball cap wearing twenty year old.
Dylan "The Shadow" Hart is the leader of the team and an expert con-man, the go-to guy who has just returned from "re-directing" £17 million from a drugs cartel and was captured in the process and injected with an experimental and very dodgy truth serum for information on their covert operations.
Skeeter has been in love with Dylan since she arrived at the Shop and in Book three (Wild) they spent an evening together trying to help out a colleague and connected more than Dylan anticipated. Since that night, 7 months previously, Dylan has resolved to stay away from the beautiful and tough Skeeter as he feels ashamed of his feelings for a woman 12 years younger than him who he tries to see as a child and the rest of the team see as a little sister.
His plans to debrief and leave ASAP are derailed when he and Skeeter are charged with collecting a file with explosive contents and there are no other team members available. He's not happy and Skeeter is determined to prove her worth following all the training the rest of the team have given her - and two missions she's been on.
Ms Janzen writes faced-paced fun with guns but without losing any humanity that touches the heart and you genuinely care about the characters. I loved this book, although it's considerably darker than it's predecessors and paves the way for an even darker sequel that I don't doubt will be equally fast-paced and wonderful.
