Title- Smitten

Series- Crush # 2

By-Lacey Weatherford



Life is good. Cami is away at her dream college with her dream man by her side. She thinks if she can just get through with meeting Hunter’s family that everything will be perfect. Little does she know that life’s about to turn upside down again when Hunter is called to infiltrate a gang whose specialty is chopping and racing cars. His contact happens to be a beautiful curvy girl who is the gang leader’s sister and he has to pose as her boyfriend. Communication with Cami is basically forbidden to help keep his cover.


Hunter, however, can’t stand being away from the girl he really loves, and he sneaks away one night to meet her across town. He doesn’t know the gang leader, Ripper, has suspicions about him already and he’s following him to see where he goes. He surprises Hunter and Cami, and Hunter quickly introduces her as his cousin who is having some car trouble. He thinks all is well until he discovers he has one serious problem. Ripper likes Cami and decides to pursue her, drawing her into the same dangerous world he’s supposed to bring down.


Can he keep his cover without having Cami get caught in the crossfire? Will the two of them survive having to watch each other fake it in the arms of another? Or will their hot stolen kisses destroy everything?



Smitten was a good follow up to Crush. The romance was disgustingly sweet and the danger was real, if a little implausible. Cami and Hunter/Dylan are ready for their lives to settle down so they can really start to get to know each other, but life has different plans. While Cami is visiting Hunter’s family for the first time, he gets called away on another undercover job. It’s so dangerous that he’s not supposed to have any contact with his family and friends. So, what does he do? Of course, after three weeks, he can’t stand it any longer and he meets up with Cami and things spiral downward from there.

The things I enjoyed about this book were the fast pace and quickness about it. It was another quick, easy read. There’s something about the way Weatherford writes that keeps you invested. Since this is only my second Lacy Weatherford book, I haven’t figured out what that is yet. But I certainly enjoyed this book.

There were something about the story that were just implausible, though. Hunter is an undercover officer, yet, everyone in his life ended up knowing about his ongoing case. That’s a big no-no. His mother even gave him a hard time when she found out about an accident he had that he didn’t tell her about right away because he wasn’t supposed to contact her at all. And everyone was so amiable. They just got along way too well. Someone was always apologizing for something and anything Cami wanted, Cami got. End of story. There were a few other things, but I won’t go into detail. In the end, I liked the story. The twist at the end was…special. lol And unique. I’m glad Weatherford decided to “go there” because I really liked that part.

Lacey WeatherfordAbout The Author-

Lacey Weatherford was born in Ft. Meade Maryland while her father was serving in the military. She has been a life long resident of Arizona, spending most of her time growing up in the small rural town of Clay Springs.


It was while she was attending the small country school in Clay Springs, that she read her first “big” book at the age of eight. It was a Nancy Drew novel and Lacey was instantly hooked. She read every book that she could find in the series and decided that she wanted to write stories too.


Lacey spent a lot of time at the library from that time forward, even volunteering in her later teen years and early twenties. She would don a crazy clown outfit for the Friends of the Library fundraisers in an effort to help get the new town library built.


When she and her husband moved away from the area, Lacey took the opportunity to take some creative writing classes at the local college to help further along her interests. Several years later, they were blessed with the opportunity to move back to Clay Springs with their family. The town had finally succeeded in building their library and Lacey had the opportunity to be President of the Friends of the Library for a very short time, before relocating.


Lacey and her family still live in the White Mountains of Arizona, where she continues to write young adult novels that have a fantasy/fairytale or paranormal bent to them, as well as being sure to include a great romantic storyline!
