Book Review – Some Sort of Happy (Happy Crazy Love, #1) Melanie Harlow


Skylar Nixon. She’s even more beautiful than I remember. Ten years ago she was an impossible dream, and now she’s right here in front of me, offering everything I ever wanted.

But happiness never lasts, not for someone like me.

I have to protect us both.


Sebastian Pryce. He’s the most complicated, frustrating, beautiful man I’ve ever met, and my body craves his with a hunger I’ve never known.

My heart is his completely.

Why won’t he let me in?

Some Sort of Happy was fun, sexy, humorous and heartfelt, and I absolutely loved it! It was my first novel by Melanie Harlow and it will definitely not be the last. I loved her writing style and the unique storyline and characters she created in Some Sort of Happy. It was certainly a top 2017 favorite for me and I can’t wait to read more from her.

   Skylar and Sebastian were truly amazing and I fell head over heels in love with them and their story. I felt an instant connection with them and wanted to know more. I loved their personalities and chemistry together, and how their story and relationship progressed. I loved that it was told from both Skylar and Sebastian’s POV, and I loved getting to see what each of them was thinking and feeling throughout. They were both dealing with difficult situations in their lives, Sebastian more than Skylar, and it was frustrating and heartbreaking at times, but I loved going on their journey with them.

   Skylar and Sebastian’s story was so unique and refreshing. I had never read a book where the hero or heroine was dealing with OCD, nor have I ever dealt with a person who had such a severe case like Sebastian, but I thought Melanie Harlow did an outstanding job with every aspect of the story. Skylar and Sebastian were both strong and vulnerable, and it made them more likable and relatable to the reader. I loved that they found each other and were able to deal with the difficult problems together for the most part. Skylar and Sebastian had plenty of ups and downs, but their story was beautiful, emotional, and definitely memorable, and I absolutely loved the conclusion in the epilogue. It left me with a huge smile on my face, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect.

   The secondary characters were wonderful and I loved their addition to the story. Skylar’s family, especially her two sisters, Jillian and Natalie, were amazing and hilarious, and I loved when all of them were together. I haven’t read the Frenched series by Ms. Harlow yet, but I know that a few of the characters in Some Sort of Happy were from that series, and if you loved them in those books, I think you’ll enjoy seeing them again in this one.

   Some Sort of Happy was absolutely amazing and definitely a top 2017 favorite. I loved this book with all of my heart, and I was truly ecstatic with the outcome to Skylar and Sebastian’s story. Melanie Harlow certainly impressed me with her writing style, and the wonderful and addicting storyline and characters she created, and I can’t wait to devour the rest of the Happy Crazy Love series, as well as all of her other novels!
