About the author

"Falling in love can feel like a dream…or a living nightmare.

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…"

Crazy Love You by Lisa Unger is an intriguing an taut psychological suspense narrated from the point of view of Ian, a man with a lot of baggage from his past.

I devoured each page, and although I had worked things out when I was just ten per cent into the story, this just added to my excitement and eagerness to read on.

I think that if I had just picked up this book, without having read a previous piece, I would have had a completely different take on the events being presented to me, which may have kept me guessing but may have ultimately left me confused.

Therefore, if you are considering reading this book, I would strongly suggest you first read The Whispers e-novella, which comprises of three parts: "The Whispers", "The Burning Girl" and "The Three Sisters". Ensure to read them in that order.

I would recommend these novels to anyone who is comfortable with paranormal and supernatural events.

I truly enjoy Lisa Unger's writing style and will endeavour to acquaint myself with her back catalogue.
