Love Spell by Stan Crowe plus a $25 Giveaway

Love spell updated
Love Spell Clint Christopherson’s love life is a running joke. When a crazed gypsy curses him with the best wish he could ever ask for, the punchline stops being funny. Now, even his barest touch drives girls mad for him. Desperate to reverse the curse, he turns to his last hope: an attractive private investigator who may be able to locate his missing gypsy. If only Clint knew who it was he just hired...

I was interested in reading this book because I had read and reviewed Crowe's first book, "The Cinderella Project" and really liked it.  It was his first book and it held promise.  This book, "Love Spell" was quite different from the first book. 

I think the main problem I had with the book was that I didn't really like Clint.  I really couldn't see his redeeming qualities.  He was a jerk most of the time.  He lacked social graces and every time he opened his mouth I wanted to smack him.  I have no idea, really, what Lindsay saw in him other than he was attractive.  The secondary characters were all so off the charts that it felt like everyone in the book was psychotic.  There was very little "normal" to be found.  That makes it hard to relate to as a reader.  I missed the connections to the characters- the deeper than surface feelings.

The book felt a little disjointed- the flow was off for me.

I did like the concept of the book though.  I thought the basic story line was good.  There were funny moments that made me smile.  The book was clean, which I always appreciate.  I loved the San Francisco setting- one of my favorite places to visit.  This book has a lot of potential and it was an okay read, it just fell a little bit short for me.  Three stars on Goodreads for me.

Author Stan Crowe Stan had a pretty normal, middle-class American youth. He was lucky enough to change that by convincing an exceptional woman to marry him in 2000, setting him on a much more fulfilling life course. Four years later, Brigham Young University awarded him with a Bachelors of Science in civil and environmental engineering. He then he spent several years designing homes, prescribing work for bridges, and even exploring the mortgage industry. In the midst of all this, he produced two science fiction anthologies in 2006 and 2007. In 2012, Breezy Reads Publishing picked up his romantic comedy The Cinderella Project. And thus he transformed himself from Captain Kirk into Don Juan. Stan lives with his wife, children (final count to be determined) and two cats in Utah.
