Review from Way Too Hot Books

I think I found my new Olivia Cunning. I have the softest spot for rock stars/bad boys. They are my absolute favorite in harem of fictional men. Kellan Kyle & D-Bags, Sinners, Sole Regret, The Mighty Storm and I can't wait for Exodus End novels. Now there are new bad boys to add to my ever growing list - Shaken Dirty.

First book in Shaken Dirty series by Tracy Wolff is a story about Ryder Montgomery, lead singer of the band. He has everything we want in our rock

Crash into Me was a fast, sexy, addictive read! Unrequited love is one of my all-time favorite romances, and this one did not disappoint.

Jamison has crushed on her brother, Jared’s best friend, Ryder for ten long years. Unfortunately, this just stuck her in the “off-limits” category, but her heart didn’t get the memo. She’s witnessed their garage band turn into the mega popular Shaken Dirty; been there every step of the way, yet her feelings for Ryder have never changed. Now that Ryder has millio

Where should I begin........Oh yea.......


This is Tracy Wolff's first book in the Shaken Dirty Series. I was so excited to get a Advanced Copy.

The book begins with introducing us to all of the characters just briefly because after all the story is about Ryder and Jaminson.

Ryder is a sexy rock star complete with tattoos and piercings as well as a very disturbing past. He takes on so much. He believes he is at fault for everything and e

If you're looking for a hot rocker, a few scorching sex scenes and a quick HEA, you'll find it here. Unfortunately, the books overall theme of "I can't have you because you're my best friends baby sister and I'm not good enough for you," failed to keep me invested in the story. The constant denial and repetitive thoughts had me skimming and I wished for more background history on each of it's characters. However, the twist toward the end was unexpected and the perfect set up for fut

Protective hot rocker, best friend turned hot lovers? Sign me the fuck up! You just took two of my favorite things and gave me one great story. Not hard to figure out where the plot may take you, but enough guilty angst to make you want to reach deep into your Kindle and strangle a person a time or two.

"He felt so good, tasted so good, that she wished she could live in this moment forever."

I cannot resist a brothers best friend romance. Jamison finds herself touring with her brother and her brothers best friend, Ryder, who she has had a crush on for a long time.

The steamy scenes were hot! Jamison and Ryder were very likeable. I was shocked by some of the events at the end.

I promise I won't attack you in your sleep.end.

I have read a few books by Tracy Wolff in the past couple of months, and all of them have the potential to be brilliant. Crash into Me is the same. I liked it and there were parts of it I loved, but it still didn’t blow me away. On the plus side, my ratings for each book that I have read by this author have consistently gone up with each book!

We are all familiar with the rock group series format. There are dozens of books and series out there in this genre. I lo

I like this book ok. I wish there is more character development. I want to know why ryder and jameson falls for each other. And what is the story from their childhood.

But i lijmke the author highlighted the issue such as drug and groupies and the band dynamic. Again its an ok read.

CRASH INTO ME is the first storyline in Tracy Wolff’s new contemporary adult SHAKEN DIRTY rock star romance series of the same name. This is Jamison and Ryder’s story-Jamison is the sister of Ryder’s best friend and fellow bandmate Jared and Ryder is the tattooed, pierced and lead singer for Shaken Dirty. Everyone in the band knows that Jamison is Jared’s little sister and there is a hands-off policy enforced. But when Ryder learns that Jamison is the band’s new chef for the tour, he doesn’t kno ...more

Crash Into Me is a story about a girl that is in love with her brother’s best friend and a guy that doesn’t want to get involved with anyone because of a trauma from his past.

“Little pieces hold the secrets,
Little moments hold the clues,
To the whispers deep inside yourself
And the truth I wouldn’t choose. “


Ryder is the lead singer of a very promising rock band- Shaken Dirty. Jamison is his best friend’s sister. She has been in love with him since she was a little girl. In one week her life changes dramat

I know I’m not the only one who loved Rock band romances because there are too many out there and while this is my first book by Tracy Wolff, it won’t be my last. Holy hell this woman can write and set a scene and give me chills while making me cry practically all at the same time! Crash Into Me is the first book in the Shaken Dirty series and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Ryder Montgomery will rock your world. If, like me, you are partial to a rock god he's perfect. Tormented and protective, dominant yet gentle, tattooed with rippling muscles...I'm a happy woman.

From the opening chapter it completely swallowed me up. I loved Tracy Wolff's writing style; it's fast, it flows well and she describes everything so perfect that I felt like I was in the crowd watching the guys on stage. The sexual tension and build up is off the scale hot and when the sexy action happe
I'm not sure about this one. I wanted to give it more stars because I liked the 2nd book (which I read first), but I have to say I was a little disappointed.

Jamison & Ryder

Ryder, Quinn, Wyatt, Micah, Jared (Jamison’s brother) are in the band named Shaken Dirty. Jamison has known the guys for most of her life.

Jamison has been in love with Ryder Matthews since she was 14 not that Ryder would ever think of her that way.

After Ryder’s failed relationship with Carrie he felt he was damaged. Carrie took her own life and Ryder could not save her. Ryder was not good enough for her.

Wow...just wow, Crash Into Me was simply amazing! Not since reading Backstage Pass, by Olivia Cunning, have I been so enamored by, and in lust for, guys in a book band. The boys of Shaken Dirty are just super yummy and I can’t wait to devour every book in this new series!

Jamison is a spit-fire and I loved the spark of her personality. She is honest, smart, and independent. She wants to pave her own way much like her brother Jared, but after losing her job, breaking up with her boyfriend and

It’s official! Tracy Wolf is from now one on my top 5 list of my favorite contemporary romance authors! I enjoyed this book very much. Well, it has sexy rock stars and fucked up situations, what’s not to like?

Jamison has many problems in her life right now and the fact that her brother’s band is in town doesn’t make problems go away. Just the opposite, because that means that Ryder, her crash for the last decade is her also. And now, after so many years their relation

I just cannot with this. There’s many things that irk me in this book, but what I absolutely cannot stand is that for some reason the author feels the need to explain everything to the point where it insults reader’s intelligence.

Here's one example:

If we have an obvious attraction and sexual tension between the MCs from the very beginning of the book, and then we have the hero reaching for the lime over the heroine and touching her in a process, do we really need this following explanation?

“Reaching for the lime had just been an excuse. Hexplanation?

4-4.5 Stars!

The pages flew by as I immersed myself into these characters and the story. The "rockstar" vibe kind of reminded me of the sinners on tour series but less sex based. Only downside is how short it is and how quickly the book ended.

Great book and interesting start to the series. I can't wait to hear more about Wyatt, Jared, Quinn etc.

Watching Ryder was like watching sex in motion. It totally revved her engine, even as she knew nothing would come of it.

Jamison Mathews and Ryder Montgomery have history. Jamison has had a crush on her brother's best friend since she was thirteen years old. Now a decade later, their band, Shaken Dirty is hot, popular, and on tour. While Jamison's life is going downhill fast.

After another particularly bad night, some alcohol, and drama, her brother Jared convinces her to come on the road w
I just love me an angsty rock and roll love story with a tortured musician and a strong female lead who brings him to heel. Fortunately that’s just what Tracy Wolff gives us with Crash Into Me, her first in a new rock and roll series. The main characters are Ryder Montgomery, lead singer and tattooed rock god of the group, Shaken Dirty and Jamison Matthews, younger sister of Ryder’s bandmate, Jared Matthews.

Crash Into Me was a solid contemporary romance! I love a tall, dark and handsome Rock Star! Ryder, the lead singer of Shaken Dirty, is damaged beyond repair. Thinking that he's no good to love he becomes a complete He-slut. Jamison has always been the off-limits "Little Sister" to all the guys in the band. She's done everything to try and gain a little independence for herself, including pushing aside her crush for Ryder.

Unfortunately, within the matter of a week she loses everything she's worked

Quick & Dirty: Emotional new adult romance with interesting characters, drama, and lots of steamy moments. This was a really great read and I would highly recommend it.

3,5 stars. It was my first book from Tracy and I like her writing style. I don‘t know what exactely is missing for 4 stars. It‘s your tipical guy falls in love with best friend‘s little sister mixed with the rock star theme. I like how the books starts and end but something in the middel was missing for me. Suddendly Jamison and Ryder are having an affair, suddenly they are in love and suddenly there is the grand final. I think I was missing more story. Nevertheless I will read book 2.

What can I say about this book?Oh, my word, where do I start? I've read a lot of rock 'n' roll-themed books lately because, let's face it, rock gods are in right now. But let me tell you, this one just might be one of my favorites. From the characters to the storyline, this book had it all. I just don't know where to start to describe it!
