Charli has a plan for her life. It does not include the hot guy at table four. This is the first time she’s seen him at The Crash, the bar where she works most evenings. From the moment he arrives with his power suit, condescending friends, and unnerving stare, he’s hijacked her thoughts. It doesn’t help that he keeps finding ways to insinuate himself into her life.

This book was fantastic. So funny and fun to read. Highly recommend.

My Thoughts
Crash is the story of a cheeky waitress/author named Charli and her polar opposite - Logan, a lawyer. Their story is roll on the ground, get strange looks from your husband and dog, laugh out loud funny. The banter between Logan and Charli and all of their friends and acquaintances is so witty and perfect I found myself telling everyone to read this book. It is a short-ish, sweet, fun romantic comedy that doesn't have

5 Stars!

This book was super cute. It was sexy, sweet, fun, and had a fun storyline that will make you laugh and keep you on your toes. These two ladies are brand new to me and ones I will be looking for more of them in the future. This book is a standalone but definitely look forward to the next book!

I love a book that can make me giggle and blush along the way only to give me a beautiful romance. I fell in love with the witty banter, supporting characters and the dating that Charli and Logan di

I really wasn't sure what to expect with this story, but OMG what a gem! Crash completely blew away any of my expectations and I LOVED it! Charli has a very structured plan for her life, and that doesn't include men. The first time she comes face to face with Logan at the bar she works at, she can't get him out of her head. And he keeps showing up. Logan also has a plan for his life, which doesn't include the cute waitress that he can't get out of his head. But the instant connection they have k ...more

Want a hilariously funny romantic comedy?
Then look no further than Brandon and Bell’s debut novel- Crash. Crash is the story of a cheeky waitress/author named Charli and her polar opposite - Logan, a lawyer. Each with their own set of funny friends and outlooks on life, these two fall hard and fast for each other unable to keep their hands off each other even in the most inappropriate of places. This book is romantic comedy that lacks the cheese and campy romance that you find in a whole lot o

I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed so well I could not tell when the authors switching in the story. This is the first book I have read from either of these authors. The story has laughs and heartbreak.

This is Charli and Logan’s story. Charli is a waitress. One night a customer will change everything she thought she knew and wanted. Logan is a lawyer. What happens when opposites attract? Will they be able to overcome the differences they have? Is either of them really li

Hilarious + romantic + charmingly sweet

This book is highly entertaining, funny, steamy, has an interesting but highly addictive choice of dialogue and leaves you wanting more. I hate any type of spoiler, so I won't bore you with a ton of details that you can just read in the book's description ("hint, hint" for some of you that just love to ruin books for others). Just know that this book is worth your time and highly recommended. It literally captures your attention from start to finish. You w

I'm in the mood for easy and sweet and this hit the spot. Yes there was drama and yes I wanted to kill Logan but Charli drove me more insane that he did. I loved the secondaries, I love it when they are a big part of the story and this was true to this book. Ugh his coworkers aaaggghhh. Overall I really enjoyed this book, it was easy, simple, sweet, funny. The banter was good and there was the right amount of drama to really keep you interested.

I have to say that this book was completely adorable and hilarious! I loved how this book took two characters and went through their ups and downs and everything in-between. The way the author set up this book and the characters makes it really easy to understand and get to know the different point of views presented in the novel. I actually liked how the author presented the book through both Charli and Logan's perspective because it allowed me, as the reader, to get an idea of what bot

This is a highly entertaining and enjoyable read. You will love the characters in it as they are hilarious with their antics and witty banter. I loved the storyline of this book and I wanted to smack Logan upside the head for being so dense at times. I understood partly why he makes the choices he does but at the same time if I was Charli I would be upset as well.

You have Charli who works at a bar and is currently writing a novel. She isn't about making a ton of money in order to buy material th

Favorite Quotes:

Ronan is an ex-marine who's forgotten he's retired. Sometimes working for him makes me feel like I'm going through basic training.

Crossing his arms over his chest and tilting his head to one side, he inspects me from the top of my ponytail to the soles of my shoes. I feel like I went through the full-body scan at the airport.

It's only our second date, and if I ask, he will think I'm one of those women obsessing over their biological clock. He'll assume I'm already drawing hearts,

I don't get it...I don't get why the reviews are so good on this book. I thought it was terrible. It was cliche and the characters were awful. I could not connect with any of them. I thought Logan was a douche and Charli was such a cry baby (why was she always crying!!!). I love how they tried to make her so strong and sassy but every time Logan would do something crappy she would give in because he was "shit hot". If I heard the term "shit hot" in this book one more time I was going to lose my ...more

Charli has a plan. She knows exactly what she wants to do with her life and is in the process of following her dreams of being a writer while working at The Crash. That plan does not include the hot guy at table four. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to agree.

Logan has a plan. Said plan did not include the cute little waitress that he can't seem to get out of his mind. She's not the type he's usually attracted to but right now she's exactly what he wants.

Overall, I thought Crash was very well-dev

Truly one of the best books I have read in a long time! Unlike any other "romance" novel I've ever come across. It's not full of long-haired knights riding you off into the sunset... It's your own love story. It's a story that feels like it could be happening to you, and you get completely submersed into the characters. One of my favorite aspects of the book was the humor. It didn't feel "cheesy" at all. More than once, my husband caught me giggling out loud! And lastly, the writing was phenomen ...more

This is a hilarious funny romance book that will have you laughing from the beginning to end. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down . Charlie and Logan's relationship is down to earth it makes you take a different look on what's important that makes you happy! I love Liv, Charli's best friend who has a colorful vocabulary and a passion for what she wants. I can't wait for book 2 of Liv!!

Absolutely loved this book! It was laugh out loud funny, Logan and Charlie were relatable and hot! Charlie is independent, stubborn, sarcastic, and strong willed. All my favorite things in a heroine. When she meets Logan she can't stand him. He is self righteous and of course with a bimbo! I loved reading this book and can't wait for another book!!

Such a fun loving great book. Can't wait for the next one.
Charli works in a bar while trying to write the great romance novel. Logan is an attorney who ends up in Charli's bar one night with his friends who are less than nice to Charli. But he can't stop thinking about her and starts to pursue her. I just couldn't get into these characters, especially Charli. She was insecure and the lack of communication between her and Logan led to most of the conflict in the story. Too much unnecessary drama for me!

Charli is a waitress at Ronan's bar. One night, table four is full of stuck-up lawyers. The make her feel terrible about herself but she can't stop thinking about the guy named Logan. There was just something about him. He showed up the next night too. He was sitting in Liv's section and she seemed to get along with him and his friend much better than she did the night before.

This book was such an unexpectedly pleasant surprise of a read. I found myself smiling and laughing as Charli and Logan tried to pretend their attraction was nothing more than a temporary lapse of sanity. Then there was Olivia Garrett, Charli's best friend and one heck of a surprising comic relief. Charli and Logan's love story was lighthearted and f

This is a brilliant wee read. It is a terrific blend of life, love and cheeky fun. With the main character driving the story and really having snarky, exciting personalities, I found myself hooked on their story.

This book will often have you rolling on the floor, or st least giggling aloud, possibly in public places where people stare, but it is worth it as this book is a real laugh. There are moments that you can see happening in a friend's life and it is hard not to love how they handle said

Ah what a refreshing read!

Not only was Crash a romantic sexy exciting book but it was fun as well. It’s nice to finally ready a book that could realistically happen. Charli’s quirky personality had me thinking that I could see myself enjoying her friendship. Then when she hooked up with Logan I actually wanted to BE her. It was a delight to read that Charli and Logan dealt with the same relationship challenges that all couples face. Their completely opposite personalities forced them to comprom

Brandon and Bell's debut of Crash the first series, is skillfully brilliant. Very quickly you are transported into Charli and Liv's true to life friendship. Charli has methodically put together her life plan which did not include an intermission with Logan. Liv and Matt are strong supporting characters that leave you wanting to know more. The exchanges between these four friends is smooth and natural. You will find yourself addicted to this romantic comedy that is interlaced with heart pounding ...more

I was surprised to find that it was written by two authors as the writing was seamless with a consistent voice. Told in alternating POVs, Charli and Logan had different attitudes to life while sharing a strong attraction for each other. Charli was more laid back who worked as a waitress while pursuing her true passion for writing. Logan was a go-getter trying to prove himself and get ahead in his career as a lawyer since he did not grow up in a privileged life. It was a cute and easy read. I fel ...more

Fun, sweet and sassy!

I love it when a book can make you fall right into the storyline and into the minds of the characters. This is exactly what Stacey and Karen did with Crash.

Charli and Logan are such a cute couple. They are easy to love and the banter between them is great! The story flows wonderfully but the characters are definitely what make this book!! They are hysterical, quirky, sassy, smart, driven and lovable. It almost is like walking into old episodes of Cheers or Seinfeld!

Light and lame

Started off pretty decent but as it went on, I just started to dislike Charli. She is supposed to be independent and all that but she just turns in to a judgemental whiner. She became so insecure that the story just fell apart especially at the end. It was like the author had to finish in a hurry and just haphazardly finished. I really didn't like that Logan left his firm to work for a non profit. It didn't seem genuine to the character. It was just because Charli was so rude about
