I have a crush on my new neighbor. The one that everyone hates.
I know all the rumors in the neighborhood. Andrew Mason is rich. He’s gorgeous. He’s a recluse. He’s a genius. He’s a jerk. The sign he puts on his porch on Halloween makes all of the kids cry.
Oh, and a car crash seven years ago left him in a wheelchair.
He seems to think that’s going to put me off.
I’m determined to get his attention, though he doesn’t want company. I can’t help it. I want to know what makes a man so beautiful and so complicated tick. I want to know what goes on in his brilliant, good-looking head. I want to know if his muscles feel as awesome as they look. I want to break down his defenses.
But if I can break down Andrew’s defenses, then he can break down mine. What starts out as a battle of wits becomes… something more. Something hotter. Something neither of us expected.
When two damaged people crash into each other, they either destroy each other… or they fall in love.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
When two broken people crash together, will love heal them, or make their lives implode?
Andrew has become a recluse since an accident seven years ago that killed his best friend and left him in a wheelchair. He wants nothing to do with the super friendly lingerie model who has moved across the street, but after Andrew reluctantly lets Tessa into his home when her A/C breaks, she starts making her way into his heart as well.
Theirs is a tentative friendship at first, but when Tessa opens up to Andrew about her troubled past and mental health issues, he finds a kind of kindred spirit in the girl underneath the bubbly outside.
Julie Kriss did a great job of writing Andrew’s disability, and exploring the connection between the two main characters. As much as he tries to fight Tessa’s presence in his life, Andrew was a changed man thanks to her. I loved that wanting to be with Tessa finally made Andrew step out of his comfort zone! His Grand Gesture at the end… the sweetest!
Andrew is Nick’s brother from Spite Club. While Nick and Evie make some appearances, Crashed is a complete standalone. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
