Crash Into Me
Though he’d gone into virtual seclusion, Ben Fortune was still the world’s most famous surfer, known as much for his good looks as for his skill. He’s also a suspect in a series of brutal murders that may ...more
"Fine," he muttered, telling himself he was doing it for Olivia, for Carly, and even for Lisette. Not because he had any interest in spending time with Special Agent Sonora Vasquez, or getting wrapped up in her strong, slender arms again.
Do you smell that? That is the smell of subversion, burning up the pages of the romance genre! The hero wants to be wrapped up in the heroine's strong arms.
Here's some more:
Ben's mouth made a thin, hard line. "Where is he now?"
"Why? So you can find him and bea
Crash Into Me is such an emotional and suspenseful novel that I fond myself at a loss for words. Some books are just that good that you have to tell everyone about them and I think t ...more
This book was recommended to me through an Amazon Discussion for Favorite Romantic Suspense. I hadn't read anything by this author, the sub-genre was new to me so I thought I would take a chance. I thought the author really enticed you into the story making it very interesting with lots of action, many subplots and it was never slow. It is what I would call a grown up story not sweet and funny, but serious and at times intense.
I love athletes! Their bodies are always hot, their sexy and they kn...more

It was so good, I stayed up too late. I didn’t want to stop reading. The characters and events were unique, different, and pulled at me emotionally. Things happened in ways I’m not used to. The conflicts between characters were believable and interesting. There were some unexpectedly entertaining scenes. There were some good lines. Caution: the domestic abuse scenes were unsettling.
But Sonny’s undercover mission quickly proves to be a tough assignment when she finds herself falling for he ...more
Though he’d gone into virtual seclusion, Ben Fortune was still the world’s most famous surfer, known as much for his good looks as for his skill. He’s also a suspect in a series of brutal murders that may have begun with his late wife. Now FBI Special Agent Sonora “Sonny” Vasquez has been sent undercover to the e ...more
The love parts first: As I said in my comment, Sorenson plays a lot with the reader. There are moments in the book when I (as reader) can see the horrible events about to unfold (there is a very memorable dinner party), but she manages to make it not feel predictable. I knew the scene was going to be uncomfortable, but I couldn't look away and it was even mor ...more
This book was definitely written by a newly published author and it shows. It's rough around the edges and a tad too long, especially to wrap up the story. ...more
I couldn't get past Ben's insistence that Sonora (undercover name 'Summer') let him see her again. It became harassing to me and this guy, who started off pretty much okay, became one of those arrogant celebrities that couldn't believe a woman had turned him down, wasn't impressed with his ...more
I liked this romantic suspense story but I almost stopped reading it 3oo pages in. Why does this author make her female lead characters do incredibly stupid, mindless things that are utterly unbelievable?? (view spoiler)[ I could not buy that this strong woman who had made an FBI career for herself, overcoming a hugely negative upbringing, would not only allow herself to be completely overcome with lust for a suspect but tell lie after lie with respect to a murder (hide spoiler)]. ...more
Ok, back to the book. This is also my first book with a surfer hero. I loved that. Was a nice change from the other books I'd read before it. I felt the meeting between the h/h was believable enough. I loved the ...more
CRASH INTO ME immediately hooked me in during the first few pages. Sonny was the type of heroine I love, tough, brave, determined and kick-ass. You see her kick a fellow cocky (male) agent’s butt in the first chapter and can’t help but grin.
Our hero is sexy, recluse and surf pro Ben, if a little arrogant, trying to raise his slightly wayward teenage daughter and hiding himself away from the world since his wife’s murder, which he became a prime suspect for. As a ...more
Sonny es una agente del FBI que tiene que investigar el asesinato de una mujer que ocurrió 3 años atrás, para ello se infiltra (encubierto) en la vida de la familia de dicha mujer, ya que en su momento, el marido, Ben, fue el principal sospechoso.
Hasta aquí nada nuevo, pero, la historia está trabajada, nada sale de la manga, todos los cabos sueltos se van atando poco a poco, entretiene y engancha. Los personajes están muy bien descritos, cada uno con su bagaje y su pasado y consecuen ...more
Ms. Sorenson describes the setting so beautifully that it was so easy to picture and you really felt like you were there with the characters. I loved the characters and I felt bad for "butch" Sonny because she was always being poked fun at for not being feminine and being not so pretty. Exc ...more
Sonny Valezquez is an FBI agent assigned to Fortune to figure out whether or not he might be the SoCal Strangler. From the beginning she falls into an inappropriate relationship with her suspect but she can't seem to help it. Has she compromised everything? Is she sleeping with the enemy?
Sonny has sexual iss ...more
The suspense part of the story was pretty good (albeit I did guess the identity of the villain long before it was revealed), but I found myself not buying into the relationship between the hero & heroine. Ben comes across as a complete wanker (and terrible parent), and for all her supposed tough-girl attitude, Sonny doesn't come across as particularly strong (and let's not get into her professionalism, or lack thereof!). The secondary, teenage romance felt much more realistic. Overall, I ...more
