Eleven Weeks (Crazy in Love #2) by Lauren K. McKellar - Blog Tour &Review




Seven shots

Five siblings

Two boys

One heartbeat …


Stacey is good at pretending.

She pretends that the boy she's in love with doesn't exist.

She pretends that she's happy to live and die in this small town.

She pretends that her life is carefree while her best friend's life crumbles before her very eyes.

But Stacey's got a secret ...

And it's going to ruin everything,

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: January 2015.

After the emotional turmoil and devastation of The Problem With Crazy I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from Eleven Weeks, this was very much a blind beta read for me, I was assured this was a much lighter companion of sorts to the first book in the series, but what I wasn't prepared for was the depth of emotion that McKellar draws from a moment.

Am I scaring you? Are you grabbing for the wine and tissues? Hold on a second because this isn't that kind of book, where TPWC was very much Kate's story, this is clearly Stacey's, the fun filled, joyous, ready to party best friend. I thought no one could compare to Kate but boy was I wrong, the immediate connection I felt to Stacey caught me off guard, invested? Completely, utterly and within the first sentence. Stacey has never quite felt enough, never had a clear direction of what she wants and where she wants to go, she's never had the familial support that would reinforce her worth, would tell her she's capable of greatness, capable of anything she wants.

While Stacey stole my heart from the very first page, Michael held my attention, his easy charm and straight forward Aussie sensibilities was simultaneously endearing and sexy. A deviation from the stereotype, Michael isn't bad boy rocker, he's not waiting for the right girl to come along to turn him good, Michael is inherently good, throw in talent and a music star in the making and he's both the kind of guy you want to take home to meet mum and dad and the one you want to sneak out with in the middle of the night.

Once again McKellar has bravely taken her stories far away from the stereotype, she's dared to write something so effortless in it's sheer beauty that I was immediately drawn into her world, connecting deeply with her characters, leaving me desperately wanting more.
