Review - Crazy About Cameron by Katy Regnery

Title: Crazy About Cameron
Series: The Winslow Brothers #3
Author: Katy Regnery
Release Date: September 22, 2015

Crazy about Cameron is the third of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Say what? Not so much...Brooks and Pres are OFF. THE. MARKET, and Chris is so distracted with his campaign, he can't see what - or who - is right under his nose.)

With her stiff posture, black-rimmed glasses and chestnut waves in a tight bun, Cameron Winslow’s downstairs neighbor, Margaret Story, has long been the unaware star of his filthiest dirty-librarian fantasies. But with a floundering business eating up all his time, Cam doesn’t have the open road he’d need to date a lady like Margaret.

Margaret, who grew up down the lane from Cameron, has always thought of him as a cross between a bully and a tease, as likely to pull her braids as pull her leg. But he’s grown up to be a smokin’ hot businessman, and Margaret can't help daydreaming about what it would feel like to be under, um, with someone like him.

When hot-headed Cameron and buttoned-up Margaret start using the same shady contractor for apartment renovations, Margaret may find herself in some unexpected trouble, which forces long-concealed feelings to come out of hiding...and might just make way for two unlikely fantasies to finally come true.

Meet Cameron Winslow. He’s the hothead Winslow brother, the impulsive one. He’s that boy you knew who only knew how to let girls know he liked them by teasing them mercilessly. He’s all grown up now, but he still struggles with how to manage the decades-old crush he’s had on staid, buttoned-down upstairs neighbor and childhood friend, Margaret (Meggie) Story. 

Meggie has always been completely confounded by why Cameron doesn’t like her. Despite the fact that he has treated her rather rudely over the years, she’s never been able to train her heart to follow her brain’s instruction. Thus, Meggie has nursed a crush of her own (on Cameron, of course), for years. 

When the two hire the same shady contractor to work on their homes, it gives them an opportunity to glimpse behind the curtains and let each other in—tentatively, at first, though things escalate quickly from there.

Despite all the reasons it shouldn’t work, the two find a deep, powerful connection with each other. There is an intense physical attraction (they have each long been the source of the others hottest fantasies, after all), but it goes far deeper than that. They are tender, protective, and sweet. They are also…naughty. Surprisingly naughty! Delightfully naughty! Deliciously naughty! I spent a good portion of the book with my eyebrows raised, giggling breathily, because oh my—this Winslow brother has kicked things up a notch!

Sometimes, when you read the same genre, or the same author, over and over again, things become stale. Stories can become formulaic, predictable and well, boring. Somehow (*cough* voodoo magic *cough*) that NEVER, EVER happens with Katy Regnery’s books. Each new series, and each new brother, sister, or cousin within the series is fresh, breathtaking, and heartwarming. Every. Single. Time. Cameron and Margaret are no exception. Their story is sexy and flirty and fun. It’s deeply emotional without being angsty. There were moments that literally took my breath away, they were so beautifully written. 

Each of these books feels a little like a gift; an escape into this magical, deeply romantic world that unfailingly leaves my heart full and happy. You can read Cameron and Meggie’s story without reading any of the previous ones—it stands alone just fine—but I promise you that your heart will become addicted to the feeling, and you’ll just want to read them all anyway. So, what are you waiting for? Make your heart happy!

Katy's first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015, and four of her books: The Vixen and the Vet (a modern fairytale), Never Let You Go (a modern fairytale), Falling for Fitz (The English Brothers #2) and By Proxy (Heart of Montana #1) have been #1 genre bestsellers on Amazon.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
