Review: Crazy Love You by Lisa Unger

Love hurts … Sometimes it even kills.

Darkness has a way of creeping up when Ian is with Priss. Even when they were kids, playing in the woods of their small Upstate New York town, he could feel it. Still, Priss was his best friend, his salvation from the bullies who called him “loser” and “fatboy”…and from his family’s deadly secrets.

Now that they’ve both escaped to New York City, Ian no longer inhabits the tortured shell of his childhood. He is a talented and successful graphic novelist, and Priss…Priss is still trouble. The booze, the drugs, the sex—Ian is growing tired of late nights together trying to keep the past at bay. Especially now that he’s met sweet, beautiful Megan, whose love makes him want to change for the better. But Priss doesn’t like change. Change makes her angry. And when Priss is angry, terrible things begin to happen…

Summary: February 10, 2015

Crazy Love You has an appropriate name because this book is CRAZY! I love psychological suspense novels like this one and every Lisa Unger book I’ve read so far has been an intense thrill ride. If you haven’t picked up one of her books yet, I highly recommend you do so immediately.

Crazy Love You is a book that I find hard to pigeonhole into one particular genre. It has a bit of mystery, suspense, romance and even some otherworldly elements. I liked how the twists in the novel kept me guessing and I could never really figure out completely where the plot was going. I enjoy unreliable narrators and Ian definitely falls into this category.

The plot moved at a good pace although I felt like the book took me a really long time to finish. While I was reading I didn’t notice the story dragging, but I think it could’ve been trimmed by about a third. Also, some of the time jumps threw me out of the plot because they were very frequent.

The final third of the book was excellent. The plot really came together as Ian’s life starts to fall apart. I wasn’t sure if the conclusion would be satisfying, but I was happy with the way the author chose to end the novel.

Although this wasn’t my favorite Unger book, I still would highly recommend the novel to readers who want a dark thriller with twisted and memorable characters.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
