Tour-Review and Excerpt: Crazy About Cameron by Katy Regnery (The Winslow Brothers #3, The Blueberry Lane Series)

Katy Regnery

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Date of Publication: 9.22.15
Number of pages: 216

Book Description:
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 road 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-hidden feelings to come out of hiding...and might just make way for two unlikely fantasies to finally come true.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers! 

Excerpt from Crazy About Cameron
When he spoke, his voice was a desperate whisper, taut and tender at once. “I’m not just falling for you, or crazy about you. This didn’t just sneak up on me, and while it’s better than I ever expected, it’s not as new to me as it is to you. I’m in love with you, Meggie. I f*cking love you. And I don’t know how to go slow. I don’t know how to slow down. I don’t know how to do anything but love you as hard as I can for as long as I can. I tried my f*cking best to be careful with you, to be cautious and patient and gentle and not to scare you away. But the truth? The truth is—” 

“I love you too.”

He was silent, his chest pushing relentlessly into hers with every breath he drew. Finally he leaned back and looked into her eyes as though stricken, like he couldn’t believe what she’d just said.

“What are you . . . I mean, are you—”

“I’m in love with you too. And yes,” she said, leaning forward so that her lips brushed against his when she finished, “I’m sure.”

My Review
Though I never had any doubt, I have to say it...Katy Regnery has done it again, creating another smash hit with Crazy About Cameron.  The writing is flawless, the plot comes with the amazing romance and witty banter Katy always has in her books, plus there's an added dash of suspense to help spice things up.
I'll admit, when I first starting reading I was worried that Margaret was going to be one to kowtow to her father, but thankfully she shows her strength and determination instead.  It's wonderful to see her doing what she loves and following her dreams.  Cameron actually sort of is in a similar position to Margaret at the start of the book, stuck in his father's business...though his path to change is a bit different than hers.
The fact that they've known each other for most of their lives adds a sweet element to their story, especially as we look back and see how they interacted when they were young.  As adults, things are much different-and that's where the great banter comes in...along with plenty of sexual tension and heat.  Cameron wanting to hold back until he can be there all the time for Margaret is admirable, though for the reader it creates those ack!-I-need-them-together-now feelings.
The two of them together, well they just click perfectly and as a reader I found myself desperately wanting them to be together.  The tension continues to build as well as the suspense when Margaret's safety is threatened, and between that and the hot moments between her and Cameron, I couldn't tear myself away from this book.
Yet another superb addition to the growing Blueberry Lane series, Crazy About Cameron was a fantastic 5-star read for me.  I'm adding it to the rest of the English and Winslow brothers books on my top recommendations list, and if you haven't read any of the books in the Blueberry Lane series, you really are missing out on a truly special set of stories.  Recommended for 18+ due to adult language and sexual situations.

About the Author
Award-winning and Amazon bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract for a winter romance entitled By Proxy.

Now a hybrid author who publishes both independently and traditionally, Katy claims authorship of the six-book Heart of Montana series, the six-book English Brothers series, and a Kindle Worlds novella entitled Four Weddings and a Fiasco: The Wedding Date. Katy’s short story “The Long Way Home” appears in the first Romance Writers of America anthology, Premiere, and she has published two stand-alone novels, Playing for Love at Deep Haven and the Amazon bestseller The Vixen and the Vet, which is book one in Katy’s a m o d e r n f a i r y t a l e collection. The Vixen and the Vet was nominated for a RITA® Award in 2015.

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.
