4 Stars: It Was Sizzling
She’s totally off limits, but this rocker wants a taste…
Jamison Matthews has lusted after Ryder Montgomery since she was a preteen. But now that Ryder and her brother’s band, Shaken Dirty, has made it huge, she’s just one of many pining for the brooding lead singer. Too bad Ryder still sees her as a little sister. Not that it matters. Her brother would never allow it, and the last thing Jamison wants is to be another notch on a rock star’s bed post. Even if it’s Ryder’s.
Ryder doesn’t deserve happiness. After his fame destroyed his last girlfriend, he swore he’d never fall in love again. So when Jamison, the girl he’s been in danger of loving for years, joins the band on the road, he’ll do anything to deny the sparks between them—even after one hot night together. But Jamison is determined to show Ryder that he’s worthy of love—her love—and that she’s all grown up…and ready to play.
New Adult fans are going to love the sparks that are happening between bad boy, Ryder Montgomery and Jamison Matthews. What's not to love about a sexy rock star, and the sizzling chemistry he and his band mates not so little sister share? Jamison Matthews has always been the little sister of Ryder Montgomery's fellow band mate. Having had a crush on Ryder since before anyone knew the bad, Jamison's brother would never allow anything more to happen between them, then and now. Ryder and Jamison can't deny the chemistry they have for each other, nor can they deny wanting to do more just be friends. Jamison has always been off limits to Ryder.... until now. Jamison isn't that little sister the band sees her as anymore. Jamison has grown up, and Ryder just met his match.
Crash Into Me has it all. Heartbreak, romance, sexy times, and those trying times that come with being part of a band. Not to mention an over protective group of guys who still view Jamison as the little sitter, though she's far from that now. I have to admit, I love how protective the guys are of Jamison, especially Ryder. When Jamison is attacked by another bands lead singer, oh boy, Ryder doesn't hesitate to give the guy what he deserves. Ryder has had his fair share of heartbreak. Still grieving over the death of his girlfriend, this heartthrob doesn't believe he's allowed to find love or anything good again. Enter Jamison Matthews.
Jamison has been the band's biggest fan since before the band was burning up the chats and hitting the road. Her feelings for Jamison have never changed. Now that she's back on the market, and dealing with a few life changing situations, she can't refuse her brother's offer to have her go on the road with the band, and help them out. The only problem, Ryder. It's going to be a little hard to pretend he's not there when you're stuck together on a tour bus for the next few weeks. Even though Jamison's big brother already threatened them years ago about not getting together, some times you can't tell your heart and your body who to love and not to love. Jamison isn't that little sister who listens to what big brother tells her to do all the time, especially when her heart and her body are leading her to Ryder. Jamison and Ryder definitely get each other, and little by little they break down the walls they both have, though Ryder more so than Jamison.
Oh boy, talk about a guilty pleasure! Crash Into Me is full of hot chemistry, and even hotter scenes between Jamison and Ryder. No matter how hard these two try, they can't deny what they feel for each other, nor will they be able to keep their hands of one another. Holy fireworks batman! These two have some sizzling chemistry and I mean sizzling. I'm not just talking about their sexy times together either. Which I must add are um, hot. Add in the snark that comes along with these two and Crash Into Me becomes that fabulous guilty pleasure you devour in no time.
Even though there are plenty of sexy times in this book, I liked the fact there was more to the story than just that. Outside of Ryder learning to move on and find love again, and Jamison slowly but surely given her heart over to Ryder, Jamison's brother and Ryder's band mates are have stuff they deal with as well. That is what always adds to the heartbreak and the triumphs that happen in this book. I like that Tracy gave me three dimensional characters who all had a purpose for being in this story, and they were all characters I came to care about, all but one of them. They each made choices and some of those choices had consequences they dwelt with individually and some effected band, a lot.
If you're looking for a new adult guilty pleasure, I'd recommend adding this one to your e-reader. Tracy Wolff gives new adult readers a rock and roll bad boy to fan girl over. Be warned, there are sexy times, language and did I mention hot sexy times? This is definitely not for younger readers.
