Cajun Crazy
Cajun, 11
Sandra Hill
November 28, 2017

Welcome back to New York Times bestseller Sandra Hill’s Cajun country, where love heats up the Louisiana bayou . . .

Former Chicago cop Simone LeDeux is back home in the bayou, sharing a double wide in the Pearly Gates trailer park to help her mama recover from surgery. Her one rule: no Cajun men. Loved and left by too many double-crossing Cajuns, Simone puts bad experience to good use by opening Legal Belles: an agency that uncovers cheating spouses.

Suddenly she’s confronting a two-timer about to swindle his wife out of millions and antagonizing New Orleans bigwigs over an illegal sex club. Adam Lanier learns of the dangerous game Simone is playing . . . and the sexy single dad comes to her aid. Known as a rogue in the courtroom and a player in the bedroom, the ragin’ Cajun has Simone triply on guard.

With their crazy chemistry, danger on their trail, and infamous LeDeux relative Tante Lulu working her magical matchmaking, the bayou has never been this steamy.

My Thoughts:

So, my thoughts on Cajun Crazy are kind of all over place. There some parts of the book I really enjoyed and others that were kind of meh. So, we have two people who are both cajun and might be a little crazy. So, we have Simone who has bad taste in men, and happen to be cajun. Adam has had a bad marriage and decided that it's for the birds. However, these two are drawn together. They can't seem to fight the attraction, but it doesn't help when most of the family is trying to push them together. 

First off, I had a hard time with Simone and Adam's relationship. I wasn't feeling them together. They both wanted one another, but at the same time they didn't. All this back and forth kind of made me dizzy. It was hard for me to picture Adam wanting to be with Simone, because he kind of painted most women with the same brush as his wife. By the way, she really messed that poor guy up. Talk about rocky situation. There were a couple a situations he went all caveman, that was a struggle for him, because she's an independent kind of women. Two stubborn people are always have a hard time getting together. 

However, I did like parts of the story especially when Legal Belles start really coming to life. I found this part of the story pretty fascinating. I liked how Simone wanted to correct the social injustice of the world, which kind of drove Adam crazy. 

Overall, Cajun Crazy was an all right read. I did like the story a little more as the end drew near, but I think it had more to do with the dynamics of what was happen more than the love story. I sort of want to keep reading, because I'm really want Adam's brother's story, and also Daniel's brother's story. I'm kind of craving their stories, because there's something going in their heads. I mean Dave just came back needing to be fixed, and Aaron his hiding something. Those who have love the series from the beginning might like the craziness that happens in this story.

“I’ve been attracted to you from the first moment we met.”

“I’m surprised that you would admit that. Kind of lessens your odds.”

“You’re assuming this is a game. I’m too old to play games. Actually, they never interested me
much. How about you?”

“Oh, games can be fun sometimes.”

“Tease!” Adam said with a chuckle and nipped her on the chin with his teeth.

It wasn’t a kiss or a bite, but she felt it all the way down to “Red-dy and Willing,” the color of her toenail polish.

Simone remembered her bad history with Cajun men and her resolution to avoid them in the future.
“Um, I think it’s time to cut this flower in the bud. I am not going to do this again.”

“Do what, darlin’?”

That damn “darlin’ ” again! “Get involved with another Cajun man.”

“You’re going to give me the boot just because

I’m Cajun?”

She nodded.

“Well, lucky you, babe, because I’m only half Cajun.”
