A content warning would have been appreciated

By the description of this book I thought this to be an erotic contemporary romance between a male and female. There is no indication whatsoever in the blurb that this story would be anything other than a male/female exclusive relationship.

If I had known there would be a 'hero + heroine + one' in the sex scenes, I wouldn’t have bothered. I don’t want to be surprised by a m/f/m . There were no content warnings prefacing this.

5 star glitterkink romantic suspense

I believe this is Roni Loren’s first novel – can’t find any others – and it’s an accomplished debut and the first of a series.

It’s BDSM romantic suspense in a similar vein to Cherise Sinclair’s novels but a bit lighter on the sex scenes and a little heavier on the suspense – other than that, I feel comparisons would be wrong as this writer definitely has her own style.

This is the story of Reid and Brynn – they were first together 10 years ago until a traumatic...more

This is a good romantic suspense book. What it's not is a good BDSM book. To me, this falls into the rather unfortunate genre of "BDSM books written by vanilla folks, for vanilla folks" (a category coined recently by Kitty Thomas). Obviously I don't know what this author does in the bedroom, but that's the kind of shallow perspective of BDSM that I found here. I was okay with the misinformation. What really bugged me, and I mean really bugged me, was what I saw as kink shaming. In a BDSM book, n...more

I had a very hard time putting this book down, despite my children begging for lunch and dinner that day. (j/k)
While I've read some erotica before, as well as BDSM, I'm not as well-read in this genre as in others. However, I'm familiar with BDSM from a personal stance and I have to disagree with some of the other reviewers who complained that this was "vanilla BDSM." The beauty of the lifestyle is that there are so many levels to it. Not everyone who practices BDSM is going to go hard-core, 24/7...more

***original review posted at Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance***

The book is told with every other chapter going back to 10 years before.

THEN:
Brynn LeBreck has had quite a hard life. Her mother comes home bruised, battered and drunk from whatever man she's been with, her baby sister having to witness her mother's behavior. She's taken a job as a receptionist in the campaign office of a soon-to-be senator. On her first day she notices all the girls fawning over the soon-to-be senator's son...more

This book is by an author that I have never read before. That being said I will be reading her books again. In fact I look forward to the next book "Melt Into You", which is Jace book. Cant wait to see how his book plays out.

Reid and Brynn has so much chemistry together. They were burning up the pages. This book isn't just about D/s there is a really good story behind all the kinky stuff. I was invested in the characters and into the plot...more

CRASH INTO YOU was well worth the wait . . . and I've been waiting on this sweet and talented author's debut for quite a while. Roni Loren has been a blessing to my writing career through her Fiction Groupie blog, and I'm thrilled to see the rave reviews pouring in for her now. Every once in a while the world gets it right and good things happen for awesome people, and I'm happy dancing that it's the case for her.

For lovers of hot, steamy adult romance, this is a must read. Equal times fun and s...more

I must say, i have been waiting for over 6 months to read this book, that i couldn't read it fast enough the moment i got my hands on it! I LOVED it, Reid is waaaaayyyyy sexy, a real alpha male and dirty talker to boot... YUM! And Brynn is such a lost soul, that i felt so sorry for her and i hardly ever feel anything for the heroines in the books that i read! And all i can say is HELLO Jace, i'm so glad that your story is next! All in all a very satisfying read. Not into BDSM, but for Reid and J...more
Carisa
The book alternated between the past and the present and actually started really good, but after the first quarter I only continued reading it for the scenes because the romance was full of my pet peeves, including H/h keeping secrets from one another, the heroine lying to the hero in the past and in the present, her breaking up with him again ‘just because it’s better this way’ and so on. Besides, it was not an emotional read in the parts that referred to the present. H/h had a great love story...more

It’s been ten years since social worker Brynn LeBreck has laid eyes on her former high school lover Reid Jamison. Reid, now an attorney has lost a high-profile case and is determined to find the evidence to clear his client who has been wrongfully charged with the murder of Brynn’s mother. While Reid is searching for said evidence, he has agreed to take on some pro-bono work at the Women’s Crisis Center where Brynn works. Kelsey, Brynn’s younger sister, has vanished shortly after placing a distu...more

This book is a great mix of mystery, steam, and romance. The characters are real and the dialogue is great. Most of all, I love the "now" and "then" plot that takes two characters and shows the history they have tried so hard to bury as well as the present day "re-meet." Love it!!

*Recommended for adult only

4 1/2 stars. Full disclosure - I "met" Roni online, and have hosted her on my blog. So I was disposed to like her work from the get-go. However, I was pleasantly surprised with how deliciously hot I found this book.

I felt nervous about the BDSM angle novel, but the connection between Reid and Brynn carried me through. Call me a prude, but spanking/whipping doesn't do it for me, even in its mildest forms.

As a few of the other reviewers have noted, there's a menage scene, which I thought was total...more
Liz Crowe
A creative way to present a trending topic in erotic romance (BDSM, D/s) Crash Into You provides likable characters, a compelling plot and a reason to want to read more (which I understand is in the works).
Roni Loren's story of mild intrigue, interlaced with personal growth is one of those books hard to put down. The dialogue is tight and real and the set up (rich guy/poor girl) works because the couple feels believable. There is a slight twist at the end I had to go back and read, which would n...more

I don't normally read erotic romance, but as a writer of upmarket women's fiction, I thought it would be good for me to push beyond my comfort zone. I discovered Roni Loren on Twitter, and she had a lot of smart things to say. I read the book excerpt on Amazon, found it exceedingly well-written, but felt some trepidation with the subject matter. A few weeks later, though, I still couldn't get the book off my mind. So I bought it, read it, and loved it. The characters are so real that the plot is...more

For the first erotic romance I've ever read, I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I'm a follower of Roni's Fiction Groupie blog, so I knew I'd enjoy her writing style going into this, but I simply could not put this book down (or rather, I had to for real life and wish I hadn't had to). The sex scenes were great (of course), but more than that the chemistry and emotion between Brynn and Reid was amazing. I'm not normally a fan of villain subplots, either, but this one didn't feel force...more
Jerrie Alexander
I don't do spoilers but can tell you that this breakout author has a talent for turning a phrase and keeping the reader turning the page. Moving between flashbacks and present-day was seamless and added to the intrigue, tension and building emotions. Brynn and Reid will take you on an emotional and dangerous journey, and you'll be glad you went along. This book was smoking hot, and I look forward to the next installment.
Erin
Holy hot dom with a soft side, this book was steamy hotness with a side of heartbreak and action!! Roni Loren, you are officially on my radar and on my favorites list with this one!!

Crash Into You had my pulse racing and my stomach twisting from start to finish, I hated every time I had to put this book down! Written from both Brynn and Reid's POV, switching between present time and their relationship 10 years in the past, a lot of ground is covered and we get to see the bigger picture about the...more

People like to think that romance novels of any kind are just about sex. They’re just “Mommy Porn.” Roni Loren proves they’re dead wrong. CRASH is the beginning of a thoughtful, intelligent, and thoroughly steamy series that not only explores the world of BDSM, but shows it in the best possible light.

Brynn and Reid are engaging characters whose emotional connection draws you in and makes you care. There’s so much chemistry between them – but there’s also some serious obstacles to get over. The...more

4 stars. Full disclosure: I'm an author, and I also know and like the author of this book. That said, I know a LOT of authors who I like very much, and have read a LOT of their books, but I don't review even 10% of them. I only review books I would actually recommend to a reader of that particular genre whether I knew the author or not, because before I even thought about becoming a writer, I was a reader. I still am a reader, I would hate to steer someone wrong.
Fact is, I'm reviewing this book...more

Where do I start!??! Maybe the hot cover? No that's a given. I should mention though that when I saw this book had quotes from some of my favorite authors (ie Shayla Black, Lorelei James and Jo Davis) I knew it had to be awesome. I mean, those ladies write amazing books, so if they something is that good then it has to be, right??

Well, this book delivered! Roni Loren can definitely write a great story with characters I cared for and was rooting for. Lets...more

Crash Into You was on my list of most eagerly awaited book releases for 2012 and it didn’t disappoint. I read most of it over the course of a Saturday afternoon. I normally don’t like that back and forth, present to the past, writing device but it really worked in this book to create tension and suspense.

This book was hot. There is no getting around it though I generally find ménage scenes to be distasteful. Maybe distasteful isn’t the right word. The idea makes me uncomfortable. But it worked f...more

Holy hotness, Batman!

I was lucky enough to read a few early chapters of Crash Into You before Roni sold it, so I've been waiting to find out what happened for a looooong time. It was totally worth the wait!

Erotic romance usually isn't my thing, and the very few BDSM novels I've read have turned me off. But Roni handles all the sensitive elements of her storyline so well that I found the BDSM fascinating instead of terrifying. And there are a lot of sensitive elements. The relationship between th...more

I'm not one to review authors I know. But I have to make a remark -- as someone who *despises* flashback's or traversing into the past for anything but a page or so, the THEN and NOW combination really wow'd me. Pulled off with class, to say the least!
Gianna
Unexpected twists and turns! Great love story behind it all of conquering fears and bringing back love. Amazing!
Keisha
Equal parts romantic, hot, and suspenseful.

Review for Nocturnereads.com

I’m going to start off by saying there are a few grammar errors…other than that it’s pretty much perfection! A sizzling romance-check, suspense and a climax that will have you biting your nails-check, incredibly erotic scenes-check, the perfect amount of BDSM for my taste-check, a couple of hot guys- check, a m/f/m ménage scene-check, a heroine that appeals to all my emotions-check, and the list could go on.

Brynn is an incredibly amazing woman. It’s not easy to admit...more

First let me preface this review by saying that I reserve my 5-star reviews for books that I tell everyone they have to read. Due to the subject matter of this book, I have to knock it back a star. But if you like/love erotic romance then you should read this book.

Roni did such a great job of weaving a great story in with all of the erotic portions of this novel. At the heart of this book is a mystery and rich characters you want to get to know. The sex is definitely hot and Roni does a great jo...more
Sophia
Roni introduced me to BDSM erotica and I'll be forever grateful to her for de-stigmatizing it. I was absolutely thrilled when I won a signed copy of her debut as I've been waiting FOREVER for it.

Some of the reviews below make me laugh - it's always so subjective isn't it! Some found it more colorful than they expected (yes there is a hot threesome) whereas I found it tamer in context to others that I've read.

This is a good read for beginners to BDSM romance and I emphasize romance. I've only rea...more
Jackie
Amazing debut for Roni Loren. She paints a picture with her words and makes you feel like your right there with the characters. I picked this book up and didn't want to put it down. Now I want more. I had never read a book like this before. This was written in a way where you can feel the love between the characters.

Reid is a dominant man in the bedroom but he's also charming, loving and sweet. As a younger man and because of some family history Reid is afraid of who he is. He doesn't want to b...more
Melinda Collins
This book is hot, Hot, HOT!!! The tension between Brynn and Reid has an electric-static-like charge to it so you're reading the entire book with one thought in mind: "What's going to happen with these two?!?"

Deliciously suspenseful and erotic. I'm definitely a fan of this series and cannot wait for the next installment! Roni Loren has definitely found her niche in the publishing world and I'm excited to journey through her world of 'Loving On the Edge.'

Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has.

Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son. If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can fin...more
