From a bestselling author comes a fun, flirty look at first love! High school senior Mary Jane Ettermeyer has been the good girl for a long time. To date, she?s proud to say she?s been able to keep her pledge of abstinence (not that anyone has challenged it). But when the cutest guy in school starts flirting with her, she suddenly finds herself crazy in love, even though her inner Plain Jane tells her he can?t possibly think she?s cute, while her inner Sexy M. J. is questioning her vow to keep herself pure until marriage. Not to mention that hot Jackson House shouldn?t even be talking to her, because he already has a girlfriend! There are a ton of good reasons why she should never speak to Jackson again, except that every time she sees him, all of her resistance seems to melt away. . . .

Senior year is supposed to be a breeze. But for Mary Jane Ettermeyer, the drama is just beginning.

All of her friends seem to think that Mary Jane is a boyfriend stealer. The boyfriend in question is Jackson House, the most attractive guy at school. But even though she could totally get lost in his dreamy brown eyes, Mary Jane is sure that there is absolutely nothing going on between them. They only left the party for a couple of minutes, to get pop for crying out loud! And now, all of a sudden, everyone thinks shes an easy girl who goes after other peoples boyfriends.

To make matters worse, Jackson is dating Star Simons, only the most vicious (and most beautiful) girl in the school. Star happens to be the ringleader of Mary Janes group of friends. And Mary Jane really doesnt want to get on Stars bad side.

So why is she still so attracted to Jackson? So attracted that she just cant seem to stay away from him. And hes giving her all the signs that say hes just as interested in her.

The internal dialogue between Mary Janes two sides, MJ and Plain Jane, is so amusing to see. Plain Jane is the logical, rational one, whom her parents love and adore. While MJ is the wild and uninhibited one, confident that she can get the guy without losing her friends.

The two sides of Mary Jane really ring true with me. I think everyone has multiple personalities, and you need to listen to all of your personalities before making a big decision. With her complicated situation with Jackson, it seems like MJ is winning more often than not. Will Mary Janes two personalities cooperate to help her through the disarray of first love? Or will Mary Jane do something that both her personalities regret?

I liked crazy in love I read it in a day. I loved Jackson & I liked how realistic it was how just four minutes can make you a skank!!
I loved the way the two wanted eachother but tried to stay away.
I didn't like how they fell in love so quickly!?!? I also didn't like that Jackson was frustared beacuse of the situation at the end. But it was very realistic.

I would recommend this book to people who like that love love stories the love at first sight kind.

I LOL and cried and cheered and booed during this funny, poignant, fast-paced read! MJ hears voices in her head, but they're the ones I hear! Like the one that kicks in and says I look fat in these jeans, or the voice that says to just go for it and worry about it later. But what surprised me about the book was the depth--all the fun, chick-lit stuff, but much, much more.

Terrific read!
