About Crazy Beautiful: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?

Ryan stays quiet for a minute, jamming his hands in
his pockets as he leans back against the wall, silently chewing a piece of gum.
I think he’s going to drop it, but no such luck. “So are you pissy because you
haven’t gotten laid in a while, or are you upset because part of you is
thinking it could have been you and Chelsea standing up there today?”
appreciate Ryan’s directness, but sometimes his straight-to-the-point attitude
is a little unnerving…as well as eerily on point.
continue to look in the mirror and adjust the tie one last time. “I haven’t
gotten laid because it’s my choice. You know that, so don’t be a dick.” Once I
finish, I turn to look at him. “And just because Chelsea wanted it, doesn’t
mean it was right.”
is a good friend of Danielle’s, and as such is one of her bridesmaids. Chelsea
and I dated back when we graduated. We were together for five years and things
were good. Comfortable. But then she started hinting that she wanted more of a
commitment. I sort of let her believe we would get married, but ultimately I
didn’t see myself settling down. We split, but things ended pretty amicably.
It’s been two years and we’re still friends. She even works for one of my
clients. Ryan always warns me that she still thinks we’re going to end up
together, and OK, maybe I am kind of an asshole for keeping her close. But she
was a part of my life for so long that I can’t just cut her off. Don’t get me
wrong, I’ve made it clear that we’re only friends now, but she likes pretending
we might still have a chance…and I guess I like knowing someone still cares
about me. It’s fucked up, but it’s just how it is with us.
truth is that ever since my mom died when I was thirteen, I’ve never been able
to get close to a girl. I watched how horrible it was for my dad to lose the
love of his life and I vowed never to allow myself to go through that. When I
met Chelsea I thought I could change, but turns out I only liked the
company…having someone there for me when I needed or wanted it. Eventually it
wasn’t fair to lead Chelsea on, so I ended it. I told her she deserved someone
who can give her every part of him, which is the truth. I’m not that guy, but
she thinks maybe someday I can be.
broke up, I slept with just about any woman who looked my way, trying to feel
something, which obviously wasn’t the answer to my problems either. So for the
past six months I’ve been trying to change. I’m not capable of love, but I’m
also tired of the random, one-night stands.
Now if only I can find
a girl who understands the meaning of casual, things would be perfect.
