Crash was the third book in the Daring the Kane Brothers series by Kelly Gendron.

Crash Kane was one of five Kane siblings. He was gorgeous, all into cars and used to be a professional NASCAR racer. Unbeknownst to his family or anyone, he had a secret where he married his best friend’s younger sister, the beautiful and sassy Maggie, the night before his best friend died. They divorced immediately (or so he thought) and she left. It was now three years later and Maggie’s back seeking that divorce

Crash is a very open, honest man, “oh.” He pauses, and I swear I can hear him swallow. “Knowing that makes me very hard, Maggie.” Crash's girl just amuses him at times, “come on! You got to be kidding. Cute jerk, really?” Lips pressed together, she nods. “So all these years you’ve called me CJ, you’ve really been saying cute jerk?” I liked this book, I loved Crash.
All of my favourite things, I could not put this books down.

Secret drunken Vegas wedding, Brothers best friend and childhood friends romance, secret baby, second chances, Crash just kept ticking all my favourite box's. I loved it.

A little but about the plot.
Maggie returns to home town after being away for 3 years following the death of her brother. Maggie's first call is to go and see her deceased brother's best friend Crash. Maggie surprises him with her announcement that she wants a di

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Ever since reading Kelly Gendron's Declan brother series, I have been obsessed with her writing. So any chance I get to step into one of her fictional worlds and fall in love with another one of her scrumptious heroes and sassy heroines, I am all for it! The fact that it was a best friend/second chance romance just had me salivating all the more and impatiently wanting to meet Crash and Maggie. It wasn't long and Kelly

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
Crash is the third book in the Daring the Kane Brothers series and I think he might be my favorite so far. When Crash gets run off the track, he can't believe who is driving the car that ran him off. After three years Maggie is back and you will not believe what she wants?
Crash and Maggie's brother Josh were best friends and the bro code was that you don't mess with your best friends sister. So Maggie w

This is the third book in the series but can easily be read as a stand-alone. Crash was best friends with Maggie’s brother and knew the rules about sisters, but they ended up getting secretly married on a drunken night in Vegas. Now three years later she is back and wants a divorce. Will Crash agree or find a way to win her heart? Fast-paced read with plenty of drama and twists and turns. The chemistry is steamy and the story draws you in from beginning to end. I liked it.

Though I enjoyed this book, I did at times feels like a lot happened prior to this book. After a few chapters I felt a bit more caught up to what is happening.

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Crash is retired from NASCAR, but not for the reasons one might think. While he loves what he's doing now, he does have regrets when it comes to those days. His biggest...losing his best friend. Even though he has those regrets, what he can't seem to get over is his best friend's sister, Maggie. She was the one who got away and the one who

Crash and Maggie have so much life history in common, but a pile of unanswered questions to resolve, not the least of which revolves around a drunken night in Vegas!
With a great cast of characters to revisit, Crash brings us a book which moves along at a good pace, engages our hearts and minds and tells us a story which is full of warmth. I loved both Crash and Maggie and it was great to see them answer those questions which had been left hanging and had put parts of their lives on hold for thr

The cover is not overly appealing. The blue caught my eye but the font choices are difficult to readily read without effort. I’d just as easily glance past this cover as I would to stop for a moment. I only gave it a second glance because I was given the opportunity to promote it (with an option to review). The synopsis is what caught my attention and made me want to read it.

When I read the blurb for Crash, I was instantly intrigued. Being my first read from this author, I didn't really know what to expect, but I will tell you my pros and cons. I absolutely loved how the story flowed. It was set at a nice pace, and the story line held true to what I thought it would. I have always been a sucker for falling for your best friends brother / brothers best friend, I think maybe because I live it. The twists and turns was also really welcomed. The chemistry was j

I’ve been a huge fan of Kelly Gendron since I read her Breaking The Declan Series . I was ecstatic when she announced The Kane Bros were getting their own series. Every book is better then the previous one. After the cliffhanger in Steele I thought I was prepared for the race car driver Crash.... I was completely wrong.

Crash hasn’t been the same person he was three years ago. In a matter of 24hrs he lost 2 of his closest friends. His best friend, fellow nascar

I was completed captivated by "Breaking the Declan Brothers" series by Kelly Gendron that I would be lying if I said I didn't have a little drool going on when I saw that Crash was on his way!

And just like those Declan Brothers this one had me sucked in from the get-go!

There is so much pain between the lines in this one that it almost steals your breath.

From one end of the temultuous roller coaster to the other - the one constant was the connection between Maggie and Crash!

Crash has it all! Second chance, forbidden romance, best friends’ little sister, tragedy, lots of feels/emotions, dynamic chemistry between the two main characters and so much more!!

Crash Kane is a former NASCAR driver. After the death of his best friend, Josh, racing it was the assumption that he was somehow shared responsibility for the crash. A heavy burden that he has carried since that day and never forgotten.

Maggie, Josh’s little sister, was the tag-along sister growing up. As she got old
This book was an easy read but was just missing something. I read a lot of contemporary romance and went through a binge read recently of second chance/ Vegas weddings. Generally the second chance was some separation after a impromptu wedding in Vegas.

This is apparently what happened to Crash/Cash and and his dead best friends little sister, Maggie. We don't witness this night, we are told about it. It's referred to a few times between the hero and heroine. Because this dared marriage occurred

This is the third book in this series but they can be read as standalone books. I haven’t read the other books in the series and wasn’t lost or confused at all. This book was an emotional rollercoaster ride. Crash is taken by surprise when after three years Maggie comes back and says they are married and she wants a divorce. He remembered the night but they aren’t supposed to be married. She doesn’t give Crash any info really but he knows something is up. He is still grieving the loss of his bes ...more

This is such a good book. There are lies we tell to protect the ones we care about the most, our families, friends, the love of our life. Protection of a best friend and brother almost costs two people who were made for each other to lose each other forever.

Crash was a fantastic read! It is the first book that I have read by this author and I was instantly hooked as soon as I started reading. I think that I was a little bit in love with Crash as soon as I started reading about him, as I haven’t read any of the other books in the series I was worried I would be missing information but it didn’t really affect my enjoyment of the story at all

Chapter one ... and I was HOOKED. I stayed that way through the whole book. The story is complex and kept me guessing with all the guilt these people are carrying around, but... it makes for a real page-turning story.

Crash is a right moody, hot, sexy, stroppy, misery, but I love him; in fact, I love him and all his family, even though this is my first time reading about this bunch of sexy men. Maggie is a flighty little madam! Ducking off out of the lives of all the people who love her for thre
