From the hilariously relatable heroine to the gloriously romantic ending this book hit the jackpot in every single way for my reading tastes. When a book makes your heart thump ridiculously fast and your toes curl in delight then you know with every certainty that you have read a book that's worth talking about. Lauren Layne is my number one contemporary author she has the Midas touch on all she puts her hand to and I don't mind one bit that I g

Lauren Layne is fast becoming an auto-buy author for me. This is the second book from her that I've loved.

After Michael St. Claire learned of the devastating truth about his parentage, he runs to Dallas to find his father. For those who have read the previous books in the series, you all know about Michael's feelings for Olivia and the eventual fallout he had, not only with Olivia but with Ethan as well.

Not only that, he just found out a monumental family secret that had him question

I’m not going to lie, I was really surprised I liked this one. Especially because it had almost ZERO sex. ZERO people!



Not to mention it took the hero and heroine the whole book to get together.

The story reminded me a lot of The Do Over by MK Schiller. Two sisters, one’s curvy and one is a stick. Curvy is in love with Stick’s boyfriend. Enter Michael who wants Stick, but not for the reasons you might think. Michael is going to help Curvy get her man which will only benefit Michael.

Enjoyed this! Great characters, fun banter, no insta love. The main characters frustrated me a little but it was tolerable.

Michael wasn't as moody as Paul (from the previous book) which made him more likeable but IMO he goes on my Not-Enough-Grovelling-List alongside Ansel (@Jeanne yes he is still there! Lol)

I especially loved the last 10% of the book. A sweet romantic quick read.

Michael was a secondary character in Isn’t She Lovely and Broken, the first two books in this series, and even though he kissed his best friend’s girlfriend, and caused all kinds of trouble, I felt bad for him. After getting his side of things, I almost couldn’t fault him for his actions. Olivia, Ethan and Michael grew up together and both boys, Ethan and Michael, fell for Olivia but she only had eyes for Ethan.

5 "When What You Want Is Not What You Need" Stars!

A New Top Favorite! Hilarious, witty and touching! Why oh why had I not previously read any of Lauren Layne's works? With a style somewhat reminiscent of Emma Chase's or Penny Reid's, Ms. Layne's writing style is immensely entertaining and the romance in Crushed was perfectly developed. If you are a lover of the "ugly duckling" trope or are just generally looking for an uplifting, comical and satisfying romance, then I highly recommend Crushed.

Chloe was an amazing heroine. She was feisty, funny, smart and just so damn lovable. Michael, on the other hand, was moody, sexy and a jerk at times, but I couldn’t help feeling sorry for him. He had been hurt so much in the past that it was hard for him to believe that anything good would ever come his way.

This was a good story...



It was full of witty banter.



Some nice sexual tension..



Sure it lacked in the steam department..



What did bother me was the last 20%. It wasnt full of drama but that back and forth (like in the previous two books)  was too much for my liking.



Overall a great funny and light read which I highly recommend if you loved the previous books.

“I do a squat to demonstrate. Generally I do squats with weight – lots of it – but since the most physical exercise Chloe seems accustomed to is running her mouth. I figure I’d better start at the beginning. The very beginning.
“Okay?” I say, doing another since she didn’t mimic my motion the second time.
She watches my movement in the mirror. “One more time,” she says.
I comply, and then mutter a string of curses because Chloe Bellamy has just reached out in the middle of a busy gym and patted my ass.
“Very nice,” she says, sounding surprised.
“Chloe!”
She shrugs. “You just got so upset when I was ogling that other guy instead of you, so I wanted to make you feel good.”

“Michael, listen. I get it. Nobody’s ever loved you first. You’re tired of being second choice. Or nobody’s choice. I get it. Because nobody ever loved me first, either. But I’ve been thinking about this, and Michael…I don’t think it’s about who loves you first. It’s about who loves you best. And that’s me.”
… “I love you best. More than I love anyone. More than you’ve ever been loved.”
