"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?"

As I was in the midst of reading Crash Into Me, all I could think about was the warm California weather because in my neck of the woods, I have been surrounded by snow, rain and below freezing temperatures. The setting of Jill Sorenson’s romance suspense novel is Southern California. I consider myself to be a north east girl all the way, but after reading Crash Into Me, I wanted to jump on a plane and move to the west coast and surf my days away. Or maybe I would be better suited as a beach bunn ...more
When Carolyn Crane told me how much she adored Jill Sorenson novels and even compared her to Megan Hart, I couldn't hold myself back and bought 2 of her backlist titles. I started Crash Into Me and I read this 400+ pages novel in under 24 hours. It just took me so long because of the evil job and OMG I'm in love.

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
A very good read with separate plots that come together very well -the suspense behind who's the real murderer / hero and heroine's background and falling in love / the secondary love story of his daughter -which I loved. I didn't feel that the H/h love story was the main focus, or that it was a great romance, but combined with the rest plus characterization and writing style, it made up for a very good read. I also liked the surfing setup near San Diego, which brought good memories of the years ...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

Excellent mystery, suspense and romance. Full and intriguing character development.

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.

The man who three years ago killed Olivia Fortune, wife of a famous surfer, commits suicide in prison and in his suicide note recants his confession. Just like that, the case is open again, also thanks to a few more recent victims with the similar MO, and FBI Special Agent Sonora “Sonny” Vasquez is sent to the Californian La Jolla community to investigate the surfer’s possible culpability.

3.5 rounded up for the parts I loved and I loved many, many things about this book, but I ultimately stalled on the beginning and the end.

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

Sonny Vasquez is a physically strong and leading heroine contrasted by a slightly physically weaker hero, Ben Fortune. But his stamina, drive and determination more than make up for it. There is a strength in their rocky relationship. The narration changes a lot to focus on the secondary characters like Carly, James, Stephen and the murderer.

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.
Not sure how to rate this one. I loved the story. Great suspense, fast moving, good writing. But I didn't like Ben at all. I thought he was arrogant and immature. He does this whole "woe is me" thing throughout the book. I'm a bad dad, I was a bad husband, blah blah blah. Then he continues to make immature decisions. What kind of man leads his 16 yr old daughter to believe he's using a woman for sex so she'll see how men really are??? That was stupid. Guess what Ben--you were right. You are a ba ...more
At 30% into the book, it was a 4 - 5 star read but once Ben took Sonoro out to dinner as a thank you for saving his daughter's life, it fell apart and I've never had a book that went downhill that fast for me!

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

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 really, really, really wanted to like this novel and for a while I did, but there were some things that really didn't sit right with me. The main heroine for one. We start out with this tough as nails FBI agent beating a guy into the mats who devolves into this wimpy damsel in distress and gets her ass handed to her on a plate. Sonny's past and her commitment to her job just didn't jive with the way she related to Ben. Throw in the fact that Carly's new found boy friend just happens to be her ...more
3.5* This was almost a 4 star book for me. The suspense plot, although fairly standard fare, was nonetheless written with enough complexity, secondary characters, and red herrings to make it satisfying if not original. The sex scenes were decent although I wasn't comfortable with the secondary relationship between the teens. It's not the moral implications, but the fact that "spying" on the teens' love life feels voyeuristic to me since they are underage. Aside from that issue, the novel is a go ...more

My first book by the author and definitely a good intro. It was a bit strange because this is the first book with settings that I personally know. I've been to Torrey Pines high aka the rich kids school LOL. I've been to the beaches mentioned here. Ah....the joy of Southern California :)

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

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

3.5 Was a bit wary at first of the serial killer going after sexy/promiscuous women deal -- worried that all women who indulged in sex, including our two heroines, would become targets because of this, implicitly conveying the message that women who express their sexual desires are automatically, and always, in danger. But Sorenson successfully walked this fine line, keeping the killer's motivation from unintentionally infecting the sex scenes in which our protagonists engage. Perhaps because wh ...more

4.5 stars.
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

This was my first book from this author and it was really good! Fair amount of suspense, heavy on the sex/romance, great cast of characters, wonderful setting in the La Jolla and San Diego areas of California.

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

Even though this was her first book, I felt Crash Into Me was tighter and fuller than Sorenson's Aftershocks. Crash tells the story of Special Agent Sonora "Sonny" Vasquez, who goes undercover as Summer Moore to investigate Ben Fortune. Ben, a world-famous, rich, handsome, and widowed surfer, is now a suspect in three murders, including his late wife's. Sonny quickly ascertains, through gut feeling basically, that Ben is not a killer, but her cool-as-ice FBI exterior breaks down soon after she m ...more

This is a B read for me. Ben Fortune is a world famous surfer, a poster boy for the California lifestyle. A superb athlete who was fortunate enough to make a career out of the sport he loved.

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?

I love this book...this is not your usual romantic suspense where the hero in the book is already known as the alpha hero to save the hapless helpless heroine. Here you get a strong heroine who is not yet sure if the guy is the protagonist or the antagonist. She is not weak or needs saving but can save herself. Jill Sorenson also tells a mighty fine story whereby it unravels so that you are kept guessing until the end.

Crash into Me is my first Jill Sorenson book and I’m kicking myself in the ass for waiting so long to read this book. Crash into Me is pretty close to the perfect combination of romance/suspense that I have read in a long time. Loved all the main the characters, loved the twists, turns and the amazing balance between darkness and light. I highly recommend this to anyone who simply appreciates a great read.

The plot synopses is accurate enough I suppose, but the crazy antics of FBI agent Sonny are, well, crazy. Hey, I can go with a fairytale... up to a point. This, ahem, federal agent immediately jumps the bones of her prime suspect, befriends and abuses the trust of his troubled (she's a cutter) teen daughter, and it doesn't occur to her that these crime-solving techniques may be questionable. Come to that, no actual crime detecting actually happens. The hero who, natch, is innocent because no her ...more

This was really good. I love Ben, he's such a manly man except he isn't. That's as best as I can explain it. He has a heart and he loves Sonny with his entire being. That's a real man. I didn't really like Carly, it seemed to me she was just a tad bit bipolar and a compulsive liar. James was such a sweet guy, and worked with the shitty cards he was dealt. Sonny was a strong heroine and I completely loved that. She hurt on the inside and when she finally let Ben was amazing. JT wasn't a ve ...more

I had a rough beginning with CRASH INTO ME. The formatting for the Google Books file was a bit off, making for seamless transitions where I believe paragraph breaks were in order. Above and beyond the formatting, however, I also had difficulty warming up to the characters. Carly is *such* a brat with Tourettes, but as much as I disliked her, even I thought her suicide-by-rip-tide attempt deserved a lot more attention than it received. Eventually the character blips smoothed out, however, and the ...more
