Cass thought spending a month at a beachside hideaway relaxing and collecting shells would be the perfect escape to finish her novel. When she meets the dark and brooding and much younger Jonah, who's staying next door, her book becomes the last thing on her mind.

Jonah would rather stay home alone than go on vacation with his brother and their friends, but does his best to

Sofia Grey is one of my favorite authors and I usually love her work.
This one is her best work so far, it is absolutely AMAZING.

I was drawn in on the first page and read it nonstop until I finished at 3.30 in the middle of the night. Yes I am pretty sleepy today but so worth it.

Cass is an author looking for inspiration to finish her latest work. So has rented a beach cottage to get the peace and quite she is hoping for to get things done. She has recently gotten a divorce from her husband that

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I am a fan of Sofia's paranormal books. Her wolfies make my heart ache and my face hurt from smiling because they are so sweet and funny and gentle and sensual and I WANT ONE of my own! And Obsession nearly blew my mind the way she took everyday life and wound it in circles and mazes so complex and intriguing that I am desperately waiting for book two - Cravings - to come out SOON! I knew I would like this book becau

This novella would probably have been 5 stars from me except that half the book is the female lead character's book that she is writing as part of the story. We have page long excerpts from that book that I skipped over completely, and the epilogue was about her book, not the story I just finished. Weird and disappointing.

The real story of the book was wonderful. A 34-year old divorcing mother of a teenager (this is set in New Zealand)is renting a beach cottage to try and finish the book she's w

First in the Love at the Beach romance series set in New Zealand with the couple focus on Cass, a writer, and Jonah, who has some huge secret.

This was part of a bulk promotional freebie (for which I can't find the email).

My Take
Jonah may have made me a bit nuts with his big secret, AND I can see where it would be a hard one to give out, but I'm already wanting to re-read this. It was so sweet, so beautiful.

I have to say, this is one of the best novella's I have read in the Indulgence line. Right from the opening chapter it grabbed me. Sophia Grey is a new author to me and I loved her style; the story flows well, the setting is descriptively beautiful and it is filled with feeling and passion.

Crash into Love is a love story within a love story. Cass is an author, locked away in a beach house, struggling with her latest book. That is until the new neighbours arrive next door and inspiration hits her

Cassandra engaged in a vacation affair with her neighbor, Jonah, who was 10 years younger than her. Age was no matter. Jonah had secrets and Cass was worried cause she was falling in love with him. Turns out that he had been in an horrific accident and had to learn everything over again. He's still very self conscious about his scars and his speech. Can he learn to deal with his insecurities or will it ruin the beautiful relationship he has with Cass?

This is a very touching romance. This book is

Thank you to both Sofia and her publisher for sending me and ARC to read and review prior to release.

This is another lovely ,sweet short story from Sofia Grey.
I have bee fortunate to have read all Sofia's books and have loved every one of them, this is no exception.
We first meet Cass at her rented bach(pronounced batch) (love the description by the way Sofia!) in a generic camping spot close to Wellington, New Zealand.
She is taking time out from real life to finish her

My Review:
This book was good. I wasn't sure because I've never read this author, but I took a risk on it.

Cass is a novelist renting a cabin on the beach to write while her divorce is finalized. Jonah is a mystery through much of the book. There is definitely something going on with him that's an unknown. I loved that about the book...the mystery...and when it was revealed, I really liked his backstory. It definitely added dimension to his character which was needed since the book is told entire
I got an ARC from Entangled Publishing LLC in exchange of an honest review.

Crash Into You was a short and sweet read. I really enjoyed it and it was just wonderful. The novella started off well and ended up wrapped in a bow.

Cass decides to spend a month over at a beachside hideaway would be the perfect way to finish her latest novel. The beach provides her with a peace and quiet she craves and also supports her shell collecting hobby. So it is perfect. But she lacks inspiration. Well inspirati

Cass was in her mid thirties and going thru a divorce. She was going to spend the summer in new Zealand and revamp herself and finish her murder mystery that she started to write. The only problem was she was suffering from writers block.

Then she noticed that her next door beach house had some young guests. She

**I received an arc for an honest review**

This was a really sweet short story. Cass is going through a divorce and decided to get away to concentrate and finishing the next novel in her series. What better place to escape than to a quiet beach house. That is until a group of young friends decide that a trip to the beach would be a great way to spend the weekend. Little did Cass know that their visit would turn her plans upside-down.
Cass had obviously been in a love-less marriage for quite a whi

I finished this book in one sitting. Well, it's a short novella after all but that was not the main reason! The story and the characters in Crash into Love had me so captivated that I totally lost track of my time! When I reached the end, I had this silly smile on my face even though I can't bear to part with the two main characters.

This book just didn't quite do it for me. It had all the right elements, just not in the right amounts. A little too much sex that brought it closer to erotic than I usually read and not enough about the relationship. The relationship that was there was interesting and I really wish I had gotten to see a little more depth to it.

Cass is a writer trying to get the next book in her series done and Jonah is, well we're not quite sure at first. But there is attraction and sparks and they just seem to

Cass needs to finish her novel and to do this she is staying in a beach cottage in a little seaside village. Peace and quite are what she needs. At the last minute a group lets the place next door. This may disrupt her plans. They are a group of students on holiday. One of them captures her attention. She names him the Loner. He approaches her and their talk turns to flirtation and he asks her to dinner. His name is Jonah. Will this be a booty call or something more? The characters are amazing. ...more

I'm Sofia's fan to my very core, and usually know in advance I'm going to like anything she comes up with. And hey! Summer fling? Older woman and younger man? What's not to like, right?

I'm amazed to say I loved Crash into Love even more than I thought possible. Sofia took what could have been nothing more than smut on the sand (which I would totally not have minded) to an erotic love story that broke my heart and made it whole again.

I felt like I escaped to the beach for the afternoon while I was reading this wonderful novella. Sofia Grey is quite skilled as an author. She managed to tell a very complete and complex story in a difficult format - the dreaded novella. I like to have a store of these novellas from Entangled on my Kindle for quick light reads, and this one was actually even more than I anticipated. Ms. Grey gives readers fully dimensional characters, with very complete back stories. She managed to involve my em ...more

Jonah seems to be shy yet is sexy as hell. You just know something is up with him yet he draws you in so deep that it's impossible to pull away. He captures Cass by surprise and the descent into lust and so much more can't be stopped. Their story entranced me and made impossible to set this book aside. I began and finished in a short time. I can not recommend this book enough. You will find yourself lost in the depth that is Jonah and wanting to just hold him and make life right...which i geuss ...more
I love books where the heroine is older than the hero they are one of my favourite kind of stories but there is not many around, that i have found anyway .I loved the authors description of the surroundings at the beach it felt like i was there.Crash Into Love was a sweet and sexy novella and i will definitely read more from Sofia Grey

I really enjoyed this book. Smooth writing and a good paced storyline. Characters were likable and real, the sex was hot but 1 star short from 5 stars because I wanted more! It was too short for me. I hope there is another book in the works for Jonah & Cass. *hint, hint*. :)

Dang it! I liked it!!! I wish the author had added a little bit of an epilogue. I wanted a little bit more.
The only thing I didn't like much was the parts where the writing was about her book. I want more about Cass and Jonah.

I loved this book, it had me reading non stop. Jonah,despite being 10 years younger than Cass knew from the start what he wanted and was straightforward about his approach whilst Cass, despite being older was always second guessing things. It was without a doubt an amazing book.

Nice story, nice ebppk. Loved the sex scenes, they were so real and nicely detailed (not gross), I felt I was right next to the action ! The only thing I didn't quite like was the end of the book which I felt was a bit too cheesy for my liking. Would recommend it though!
Liked the characters and the story, but the ending was disappointingly abrupt. Would have preferred the epilogue to have been about the H and h rather than the characters in the h's book.

Crash Into Love is the first novella in the Love at the Beach series from author Sofia Grey and while it may be a quick read, it certainly doesn't lack in terms of character or story development. Cass is a thirty-four-year-old novelist who can't help but notice quiet twenty-four-year-old Jonah. The connection between the two is strong and I liked that while the ten-year age difference may have given Cass pause, it wasn't really that huge of a

Every time I see a book from Entangled (a publishing company) become available to request for review on NetGalley, I immediately click it. It doesn't matter what the book is about. I have loved all of the titles that I have reviewed for Entangled. Their books are just a great fit for me. Well, I spoke too soon. I read Crash Into Love and I hated it.

I don't even know where to begin with how much I hated Crash Into Love. It reminded me of those cheesy Harlequin romance novels that I used to sneak
