    Fantastic

    Fantastic debut book for this author. Loved Cleo and her wacky ways. Even though she's a bit of a character, her inner strength shines through on every page. Julian has a very unique way of seeing the world and that sometimes makes his path in life hard to deal with. He's troubled, but his flaws make him real and wonderful. Together these two are fantastic. Couldn't put this one down and I highly recommend it to everyone.

    A Seriously Impressive Debut Novel. No Cliffs.

    ** Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review ** Judging a Book by it's Cover --  Catches the eye. Clever concept. Synopsis sounds interesting. I'm normally not an avid fan of Rockstar romances, but as a favor to a friend, I agreed to read this one. The fact that he sees sound as colors is what mostly intrigued me.  Looking Deeper --  Third-person POV. Imagine going through life hearing the world's sounds in 3D HD living color. From the effervescent bubbly laughs to the annoying buzz of a fluorescent tube light, everything coming at you in color... now imagine the crippling effects it would have on a musical prodigy. That's Julian's lot in life. Cleo's hopelessly attracted to musicians. She left a great job to follow one. Took a dead-end job to be near one. When she finds herself unemployed and evicted, Julian's sister steps in and announces her to be Julian's new studio manager and loft-mate. She's already drawn blood on Julian a few times, and worse, so HOW can this possibly be a GOOD thing?  I caught myself laughing out loud, literally, in several places in this book. Julian and Cleo's conversations and interactions were priceless entertainment. He's not your stereotypical rocker bad boy. She's not the stereotypical country club snob. "If you can get your big toe in front of the camera in that bunk, then we seriously have some new positions to try when you get home." -- Cleo, in Color Me Crazy by Carol Pavliska Both are wonderful characters. The secondary characters are enjoyable add-ins as well, each adding another dimension to the story to create a lush and rich world. At about 75%, my opinions were drastically altered and I felt an overwhelming need to kick some teeth in, but... when it was all said and done, they managed to get their heads on straight and find their path to a wonderfully concluded HEA. Yes, the conflicts grew to epic proportions, but they forged their way through it all to find eventual resolutions, albeit not always in the best manner. There was little to no predictability. Overall, I am thrilled to have taken a chance on this novel. Congratulations, Ms. Pavliska, on a Debut Novel very well done. ------------------------------------------------------ Heat Level: 4.5 ~ Score: 4.7 ~ Stars: 5 ------------------------------------------------------

    Astonishing! COLOR ME CRAZY is the book to read this year! Poetic, urban, with extraordinarily fascinating characters and plot twists that will have you reeling. And the writing is stupendous! Carol Pavliska is a star! One of the most inventive, creative, and brilliantly written ever! Totally fab!

    Found a new author.

    Thanks to Entangled and NetGalley I have found a new author. Color Me Crazy By Carol Pavliska is a story that wraps around you and does not let go until you finish it. I received an ARC copy and enjoyed every minute of this book. A reformed bad boy faced with an unexpected temptation-what can be better than that? Worth a read.

    Heartbreakingly Beautiful

    **Disclaimer: I’ve received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange for a fair and honest review.** Cleo lives a life where she is trying to please her parents and live up to what her brother has accomplished. She is not meant to live that lifestyle and is miserable trying to do so. When her teaching job isn’t renewed, Cleo is in a pickle; where is she going to work and how is she going to pay her rent? In steps Julian, her best friend Addie’s rock-n-roll brother. Julian has lived a life of sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, and an incredible dark and depressing side. He sees the world in colors from his diagnosed disorder of synesthesia. Will Cleo and Julian be able to get past their baggage to see what’s really in front of them? Can they overcome all their obstacles for true happiness? I would describe this book as heartbreakingly beautiful. If you look past the ugly parts of addiction and sadness, there is an incredibly beautiful story being told, of both Cleo and Julian. This is a grasp at your heart strings kind of story. There were moments of frustration, of laughter, happiness, sadness, and love. This author has done an incredible job of pulling out emotion from me. She has written an incredible story and writes about tough issues, drug and alcohol addiction, depression, and suicide. These issues are tough issues to talk about but are such important topics as they are so prevalent in today’s society. It is stories like this that I think can allow certain readers to relate and help them cope with their everyday battle. I definitely recommend this book to you to read. It’s utterly beautiful and breathtaking.
