Let me say that I love all books by DelSheree Gladden. She is one of the few authors I know who can write in the many genres she does, and each time produce a compelling, captivating read that has me turning page after page at top speed trying to soak it all in. Her books are utter bliss, and this one is once again a GREAT HIT!!!


the crazy girl's handbook

Watching her two nephews and a puppy named Thor for the weekend was supposed to be fun for Greenly Kendrick. Sweating to death at a never-ending baseball game while getting gum in her hair, soda down her shirt, and an ice cream pedicure wasn’t part of the deal. Neither is finding out the best blind date she’s ever stood up is there to witness it all.

Longest. Weekend. Ever.

Except it doesn’t stop at one crazy weekend. Embarrassment turns into mortification, a head wound, and being patch up by her amused knight in shining armor.

Roman Carpenter can’t help laughing at Greenly’s mishaps, but for some reason, he sticks with her through it all. At least, until his ex-wife shows up and starts causing trouble. What started off as a strange, yet promising relationship, might be able to survive spiteful exes, but adding in a stalker that puts everyone on edge and pulls the police into the mix, might push everyone past their breaking point.



Greenly is clumsy, getting into messes all the time. So when she is sweaty, with gum stuck to her hair, and she meets Roman, a hot, single dad, she is not surprised by her luck to be in that particular situation.
They hit it off instantly, and after all the mishaps of that first meet, they agree to give it a go, and go on a date.
In enters Roman’s ex-wife, and everything goes tumbling down. They don’t seem to have a fighting chance, but Sammy, Roman’s son, turns to Greenly to help him through the pain of his mum entering in his life again.
Will they have a fighting chance? And what about all these crazy notes that seem to pop up in Greenly’s life threatening her?
I loved this book. Greenly and Roman are such a great match for each other. Greenly is so loving and kind, especially to Sammy, she is perfect for them both, even if she can’t see it herself.
I like the humor in this book, and also the real drama and pain. It was a perfect read, and I had a hard time putting this book down. Once again DelSheree proves to be so in tune with the story, to give the readers the right amount of pain and drama, the right amount of humor, and that great sence of butterflies that accompany every great romance. I was sucked in from the very first page, and felt sad saying goodbye to these great people once I hit the end. This was a perfect read!
