Carol Pavliska began her writing career as a family humor columnist and blogger, a pursuit she abandoned when her children grew old enough to realize they were being exploited. To save them from further embarrassment, she turned to writing fiction. Her debut novel is a steamy contemporary romance so, unfortunately, the children are still embarrassed.
Carol and her husband, both diehard Red Hot Chili Peppers fans, raise their vegan brood of mortified offspring on a cattle ranch in south Texas. No lie.

Her debut novel is a steamy contemporary romance, so unfortunately, the kids are still embarrassed.
When she’s not creating unrealistic expectations as a romance writer (ripped abs, dramatic temperaments, and eyes like bottomless pools of Hey Girl), she functions quite nicely in her real world, which consists of a delightfully stable husband and five children.

Never fall for a rockstar…
Julian Wheaton views the world through a kaleidoscope of synesthesia, seeing the colors of every sound he hears. His life as an iconic rock guitarist was a stressful psychedelic trip that nearly destroyed him. Now he’s abandoned the rock ’n’ roll lifestyle for the peaceful sanctity of his recording studio, but when fiery Cleo Compton comes to work for him, she brings chaos with her.
Cleo Compton has had her flings with rockstars—and it’s left her wary and bruised. Julian may have those sexy bedroom eyes and drool-worthy tattoos, but Cleo is determined to keep things strictly professional—until Julian turns out to be every dream she’s ever chased. When he risks it all to hit the road with a band again, Cleo fears he’ll return as the one thing she can no longer abide—a rockstar.

Review by Dana Leah from Eye Candy Bookstore: 5/5 Stars

I was lucky enough to read an early copy of Color Me Crazy almost a year ago and I am so glad that this amazing book is finally going to be available for everyone to enjoy! In preparation for this review I read the book again and loved it even more my second time through.  Carol tells a story that is completely unique with characters that are perfectly imperfect.
Julian is a former rock star who suffers from synesthesia which causes him to actually see sounds as different colors. Being a musician this affliction has caused some serious issues for Julian in his past and he is now trying to literally live a quieter lifestyle since opening his own recording studio.
Cleo is at the end of her rope, after a series of poor decisions she is now jobless and homeless. When her friend Addie’s brother, Julian offers her a job at his recording studio that includes housing, she jumps at the opportunity.
When these two are thrown together they drive each other crazy in more ways than one!  Can these two find happiness when they both have histories that seem to keep getting in the way? With this book Carol has created the perfect mix of hilarious, sweet, sexy and heartbreaking. I honestly don’t think I have laughed out loud while reading as much as I did with Color Me Crazy! I literally had to put this book away a few different times because I couldn’t contain my laughter. At the same time I found myself emotionally moved to tears at other points in the story. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to read more from Mrs. Pavliska!
P.S. Sheik needs his own book
