Crash by Stacey Brandon and Karen Bell – REVIEW



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.

Logan has a plan for his life. It does not include the quirky little waitress at the new bar his friends discovered. He has a lot of obligations and very little time. If he needs a female distraction once in awhile, she isn’t the type of woman he normally looks to. Despite all of this, she has become what he wants most of all.

Working to overcome all the things threatening to separate them won’t be easy. Can they find a way to meet in the middle if it holds the promise of happily ever after?


4 Stars

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 a high angst factor or the campy quality that so many of other romantic comedies have these days. It was really refreshing to read the debut from Brandon and Bell. I am anxiously awaiting their next release. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
