Miranda “Rand” Coleman has seen the way love can wreck a person and wants absolutely no part of it. When her granddaddy dies suddenly, he leaves a clause in his will that has her married in three months or she loses her inheritance. Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help.
Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?
Miranda "Randa" Coleman and Jake Hansen have been best friends for twenty years. During that whole time, they never even considered anything more. In fact, Randa was just looked at as one of the guys. But things change when Randa finds out she has three months to get married, otherwise her Grandfather's will states that the Double C Ranch goes to her yuppie out of state cousin.
With not a boyfriend or any prospect in sight, Randa goes on the hunt and eventually enlists the help of Jake to help her catch the eye of a certain someone. In the act of attempting to make the guy Randa has her eyes on jealous, Jake discovers his pretend relationship with Randa is starting to feel awfully real.
Make Me Crazy is a fun and entertaining read. Think hillbilly moments and you're pretty close. This is a friends to lovers story that is surprisingly full of sex and lots of it. While the book gives you tons of laugh out loud moments, you also get serious moments where the characters make discoveries about themselves. I must admit, the ending for one character is surprising. This is the first book in the series and there are several characters whose stories I'm looking forward to reading. Who would have thought I would be patiently waiting to return to Loco, Texas?
