Crazy Beautiful Synopsis:
Kinsley Moore and Lucas Graham make great friends.
They make even better friends with benefits…
Kinsley Moore doesn’t believe in love. As an independent, self-determined entrepreneur, she has other things to worry about. Besides, she knows guys are incapable of commitment, so there’s no use getting close.
But when she meets Lucas Graham, her new landlord’s flirty, sexy son, she’s more than up for some casual fun.
Lucas is in no way looking for a relationship either, so when he’s offered a no-strings, strictly friends-with-benefits hookup with a beautiful girl, the opportunity is too good to pass up. He’s not able to give his heart away, so it’s perfect Kinsley prefers to keep emotions out of their arrangement.
Except when Lucas and Kinsley start to feel something more, their complicated pasts threaten to overshadow any chance they might have at a future together.
Can Lucas prove he’s capable of love?
Can Kinsley believe she is enough?

I grab the key from my jacket pocket and insert it into the lock. I step inside and practically squeal out loud. All I’ve worked for has come down to this moment and I feel so incredibly happy I could burst.
And then, as almost always, my happiness is replaced in a heartbeat with a sudden sadness. An emptiness.
Kelley picks up on it and puts her arm around me. “They’re so proud of you, Kins. I know things got all messed up, but you’re still allowed to wish your parents could be here to see all your dreams come true in person. Here you are, making shit happen all on your own, just like you always said you would.”
I give her a nudge as if to say I know, but thanks for being the one to say it out loud. I take a breath and try to gather up as much enthusiasm as I can before saying, “This is going to be great. Thanks again for coming and helping me. I’m glad you’re here.”
She smiles but stays quiet for a second, and I can tell she wants to say something else. I know what’s coming but pretend not to, choosing instead to move up the stairs to the loft attic that will be my bedroom.
Kelley follows and looks around, clearing her throat. “I know I’m great and all, but you also deserve to have someone special to share this with. You know, now that you’ve committed to a job and a home, maybe you’ll consider committing to some…other things.” She tosses it out all nonchalant but I know what she’s getting at.
“Nice try, Kell. Just because I am now a supposed ‘responsible’ adult with a business and a house doesn’t mean I’m ready for a relationship.”
She acts like she doesn’t know what I’m talking about. “I meant maybe get a dog or something. You know, someone to keep you company.” I only have to roll my eyes in her general direction for her to back down. She throws her arms up in mock surrender. “OK, I get it. You’re fine by yourself. As usual. I just think you could put yourself out there a little more. You know, maybe date a little.”
I cross my arms defensively. “Hey, I date.”
“Hooking up with a guy you meet in a bar is not dating.” She gives me her stern you know I’m right look.
“That happened once!” I shoot back indignantly. She raises her eyebrow, causing me to relent. “OK, twice. But the second time doesn’t count because I only made out with him a little before he passed out.”
Kelley just laughs and shakes her head.
