I started it and couldn't put it down until I finished it. Crash is a fast paced passionate bad boy-I-want-to-save romance. While some could read the bad boy with a bad temper as just another book that glorifies violence, Crash is so much more with deeper. Beside let's face it, who hasn't wanted to save a bad boy or be the one special someone that can get through to him. For me, Books are supposed to be a loose your reality type of story not necessarily what I would do in real life. This is an excellent book for those of us who have loved Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire. Jude could actually take over my crush on Travis.
Lucy's family has downsized when her father lost his business which makes her family have to move to their lake cabin where she will go to private school. She meets Jude Ryder whose reputation of local bad boy with a 2 page rap sheet. But she sees something in him, Jude allows her to touch his soul. They are drawn to each other and their passion ignites. I don't want to resummarize this book but trust me it's good. I fully expect this one to follow in Beautiful Disaster's footsteps and wind up a best-seller that will put this Indie author on the radar....more

However, she gets scammed out of heJulie Seagle is excited to be starting her college career in Boston away from her small town Middle America roots. However, she gets scammed out of her off campus apartment through Craig's List. As a last resort, her Mom calls an old college roommate, Erin Watkins who immediately sends her son Matt to her rescue. Erin offers to let Julie live there to solve her housing problem while keeping company with the eccentric youngest daughter Celeste.
This is such a wonderful character driven story. The characters are full dimensional despite the title and will have you falling in love with the family right along side Julie. Matt and Julie have the most excellent dialog that is a cross between nerd speak and academia. I absolutely loved the quirky Celeste who seems to be Asperger's to me. Her biggest quirk, carrying around a life sized color Flat cut-out of her world touring brother Finn. Julie is so accepting and treats Celeste with respect and while she tries to help her fit in, Julie never makes Celeste feel freakish or draws attention to her quirks. She is supportive in a way that I wanted to hire her for my own teenage daughter with autism.
Then there is Finn. Finn is the older brother whose is touring the world by volunteering in exotic locales and helping the impoverished. Finn and Julie begin to chat and post via facebook. Finn is social, witty, and Julie can't help but like him. Finn is sometimes quite the opposite of Matt.
There is a strange love triangle in the book between Finn-Julie-Matt and the crushes they have on each other. I loved both brothers equally and was on the edge of my seat and turning pages long into the night in my urge to know how this would work out. The ending is something I didn't see it coming but it made me swoon and smile to myself in delight.
Flat Out Love is a must read for anyone. The romance will appeal to every fan and the story is about real-life people who on the outside seem to have it all together. But love and friendship emerge when Julie looks deep beneath the surface....more

Wow!! I can't wait for the Iron Knight! I just love this series and highly anticipate all the coming books. This books is the best by far and I reallyWow!! I can't wait for the Iron Knight! I just love this series and highly anticipate all the coming books. This books is the best by far and I really enjoyed the first two. This book continues the story of Meghan Chase and Ash. It picks up just as the last book ends. Meghan is going home to try to live a normal life with Ash. But she soon realizes that the false Iron King will not let her live in peace. So Meghan and Ash seek safety with Leanansidhe the exile queen who also holds Meghan's stepfather. On the way, Puck appears having been exiled himself because he followed Meghan without Oberon's consent. So the three begin to train Meghan to use a sword so that she won't be so vulnerable. During this time the false king is fighting the Summer and Winter Courts and taking over the Wyldwood. The Courts send an envoy to seek Meghan to fight the Iron King because she is the only one who can enter the Iron realm and not become sick. So the quest to save all of Faery begins.
The best part of this book is seeing Ash's softer side. I always had a thing for him but after being exiled Ash has no reason to lie about his feelings for Meghan. There are some swoon worthy scenes between Meghan and Ash as they become closer and Ash pledges to become her Knight. Puck is funny and always by Meghan's side as her best friend. This book left me anxious for More! More of Ash and Meghan! More of the Iron Queen! More of Puck! More of Nevernever!...more
