Crazy, Maybe by A.D. Justice Review

Andi Morgan is a strong, smart and independent woman, thanks to the help of a famous boxing trainer, Mack, and his protégé, Shane, who have respectively been like a father and brother to her. But that wasn't always the case. Andi never knew what a “normal” life was like. Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital.

Luke Woods, the family black sheep and street-brawler, is determined to be a successful professional boxer despite his family’s protests. He needs Andi’s help to get there. The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face the past mistakes, fears and demons that constantly plague him.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies that have plagued her, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threaten all that she holds dear. For the first time in her life, Andi must learn to rely on someone else to love and protect her or risk losing the man she loves.

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes it’s all you need.
My Thoughts:
4/5 Stars
I really enjoyed this book. It was a page turner packed with tons of romance and suspense.
Andi is a caring, tough, young woman who has been through a lot in her life. She lost her parents at a young age and experienced a rough home life while growing up. Luke is a sexy, strong willed man that has always wanted to be a pro fighter. When their lives intertwine they work together to overcome the past and embark on a romantic future.
The story was sexy and kept me on the edge of my seat. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, the Author threw in a twist or turn adding to the storyline. I quickly became wrapped up in the characters and had to know what would happen in the end. The romance was captivating. I loved the angst and how it added to their sexual connection.
As much as I loved the story... There were some parts that felt under developed. We didn't get much of the boxing...I would have liked to see Luke fight in an actual fight. Also, the dual pov sometimes led to repeated thoughts. We saw the dialogue from Andi, then the same dialogue from Luke. I started skimming at those parts since we already read the same lines in a previous chapter.
Overall I think the Author did a wonderful job creating a unique story with tons creativity.
I recommend it to all readers looking for a story that brings more than just sex...
