Crazy For You by Domhnall O’Donoghue

When Clooney Coyle promises Vonnie Gallagher they’ll be friends for life, he has no idea what he’s letting himself in for. The lonely and eccentric Vonnie quickly becomes obsessed with the kind-hearted but insecure actor, and her misguided crush soon develops into something much more sinister, which leaves Clooney’s career in tatters.
But when fate takes a strange turn and elevates the pair into an overnight celebrity couple, Clooney must decide whether to embrace the fame he has longed for since childhood or end the ridiculous charade before Vonnie’s jealous – and murderous – inclinations spiral out of control.
What a delightful read Crazy for You is. It is not as I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. It showcases the dark and seedier side to fame and friendship, as ones loneliness becomes an obsession and how their dark desires take over. As dark and twisted as it may be, it is also quite funny, which balances out the story really well.
The characters of Clooney and Vonnie are well developed and play out their roles perfectly and Domhnall has really done a great job at bringing them to life through the pages. The supporting characters of Isla and Renardo are also a real treat and are both a great addition to the story.
I really enjoyed Domhnall’s style. It was very easy to be caught up in the story and into the lives of Clooney and Vonnie, which is such a credit to Domhnall’s writing. I also enjoyed his wicked sense of humour, which interwoven through the prose, makes Crazy For You an enjoyable and very entertaining read.
If you are looking for a quick and fun read that will make you laugh and think and to take you away from what is going on in the world at the moment for a couple of hours, then Crazy For You is the book for you. It was a pleasure to read and review Crazy For You which I recommend.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes and Noble & Waterstones if available. As I am from Australia, unfortunately, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.

Let’s Get to Know Domhnall
Hailing from Navan in the royal county of Meath, Domhnall is a graduate of the Bachelor in Acting Studies Programme, Trinity College Dublin, later completing a Master’s in Screenwriting at Dún Laoghaire IADT.
He now works as an actor and a journalist, dividing his time between Galway, where he films TG4’s award-winning series, Ros na Rún, Dublin and Venice, where he and his Italian lover continuously promise their well-worn livers that they will refrain from quaffing so much Prosecco. (Unfortunately, it seems some vows, just like nearby Rome, were not built in a day.)
Wine-drinking aside, for more than four years, Domhnall has also enjoyed the responsibility of being Assistant Editor at Irish Tatler Man, a title whose various awards includes Consumer Magazine of the Year. Thanks to this role, he interviewed a host of high-profile names such as Tommy Hilfiger, Chris Pine, Kevin Spacey, David Gandy, and Jacques Villeneuve.
Domhnall has written for the majority of Ireland’s leading newspapers and magazines, including the Irish Independent, The Irish Times and RTE Online. He also writes a monthly column in Woman’s Way, the country’s biggest-selling weekly magazine.
His first novel, Sister Agatha: the World’s Oldest Serial Killer, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim (Tirgearr Publishing). His second book, Colin and the Concubine, was published earlier this year by Mercier Press, Ireland’s oldest publishing house. Book number three is called Crazy For You and will be published once again by Mercier Press in June 2020.
