Sunny Shelly’s Review: Crashed, by Elise Faber

Crashed by Elise Faber is now live!

Get on All Platforms

Once upon a time she’d had the happy ending.

The doting fiancé.
The expensive wedding.
The happily-ever-after resting just at the tips of her fingers.

Then in an explosion of glass, in a splintering of metal, everything had been taken from her.

She’d shattered herself, had broken into a million tiny pieces.

But eventually, she’d patched herself together, had hauled herself back into life, had built something she was content in.

Content, but not happy. Never quite inching into happy again.

Still, she had her friends, her job as a skating coach for the Gold, and she had her life. That was enough.

And it had been enough.

Until he knocked on her door.

Until he came back and changed everything.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Crashed was a wonderful second-chance romance story — but not the typical story I’ve read in this trope before! Brandon and Stephanie (Fannie) have such a tangled, sad history, and I loved the journey that they went on in finding their way back to one another. After a brain tumor took all of his memories of their relationship, Brandon has finally remembered her — but will she be able to forget the pain and heartbreak that his illness caused in the past and move forward in the here and now?

I usually don’t connect well with 3rd person POV stories — it’s a personal preference of mine — but I connected with these two characters right away, and loved reading both of their POVs. I thought both sides were so well-written. I got all the feels as Fannie waffled about whether or not she could allow her heart to let Brandon back in, and he made it his mission to let Fannie know that while he may have forgotten who she was 10 years ago, he now remembered every detail about their relationship and there was no doubt in his mind that she was the one he wanted.

Crashed is part of the Gold Hockey series, and it reads as a standalone. There are interconnected characters on the periphery who have had (or will have) other books, but I didn’t feel as if I was missing pieces of Fannie’s story by not having read those books.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
