Crash and Burn is a contemporary romance full-length novel.
Meet Chance Walker. He's back in town to meet with his brothers Derek, Jake and Mitchell.
And there is Erin Michaelson. She seems to be a shy sales assistant- or?
Erin turns his world upside down. They are two people with different goals in life. Can they make it work?
But this book has more, much more. There is drama, violence, dreams and love, great and beautiful love.
I really really love this new series. I love the characters and I love Amanda Adams' writing. I laughed, I cried and I suffered with the characters. And now I can't wait till the next installment.
5 Stars and Thank you Amanda Adams!
This story poses the question of what are we willing to do for love? What sacrifices will we make not just to keep that love but also to set it free?
Chance and his brothers are still dealing with the recent loss of their beloved mother when they get an unusual request from beyond the grave. Not wanting to let his mom down, even after she’s gone, lawyer Chance sets about realising the dreams of his ten-year-old self; becoming a rock star. Chance enlists the help of Erin Michaelson to teach him guitar and is instantly attracted to her. Unsure if his advances will be spurned he decides to bide his time for the perfect moment to ask her out.
Yet, he is knocked of his feet when on a night out with his brothers he finds Erin fronting a local up and coming band as her sexy alter ego, Eva James. On the cusp of hitting the big time and dealing with a wayward brother and her band mates, Erin doesn’t need the added complication of a man like Chance thrown in the mix.
However, some things can’t be denied. Chance is unwilling to walk away from Erin even if the time they have is limited. He won’t stand in the way of what she’s worked for but will savour every moment he can get. The heat these two generate…. phew!
This was the first work I’ve read by Amanda Adams and it won’t be my last. I was completely swept away her storytelling and felt every emotion with the characters as if I was really there.
My heart hurt for everything Erin had endured as a child. She finds herself being more of a mother to her brother, AJ, and has to wake up to the fact she is enabling him more than helping. Now she has the opportunity to follow her dreams, but what about Chance?
Chance on the other hand had his life all perfectly planned out but I think the old adage of ‘Mother Knows Best’ comes in to play. His mom’s request may just be the wakeup call he needs….
You get all the feels with this story. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Walker brothers’ stories and I’m calling dibs on Derek #justsayin
One quote resonated with me from the story:
“But we either focus on our past, or we choose to create a different life.”
I couldn’t have put it better myself. You need to one-click this book today!
One of the things that’s a bit of a pet peeve is when the female lead goes on and on about how hot the guy is. I start losing interest in the story quickly and start flipping through pages to get to some dialogue to see if once the two leads start communicating the female lead can actually hold an intelligent conversation or is she still going on about how hot the guy is. Luckily the author moved on from that so over done female can’t think straight must make a fool of herself in front of the “hot guy” after a while. It was also nice to see the male lead having some insecure moments as he tried to figure out if the female lead was attracted to him or not. The mutual insecurity on both of their parts made them on equal footing to me.
Chance is following the last wishes of his recently passed adopted mother, by taking guitar lessons to pursue a “When I Grow Up” dream he made when he was a young child. Chance is an up and coming civil lawyer. He has a somewhat everything in its place set of mental rules that he has been following for most of his adult life. Taking this detour to pursue an old childhood dream is putting him in on an unchartered path.
Erin/Eva is a mild mannered music store clerk during the day and a sexy front singer for a rock back at night. Erin has a dream to make it in the music industry and she is pursuing her dream with a lot of determination. While she would like some male attention her main focus is breaking into the big leagues and making all of her sacrifices worthwhile. When she is in her Eva persona she is more confident with a take-charge attitude.
After one of her performances at a local bar Erin/Eva runs into Chance during a break. Earlier while Chance was getting a private lesson at the music store from Erin/Eva there seemed to be moments of chemistry. They both decided to take a risk and test the waters with a lets put it all out there kiss. Sparks seemed to have happened for both of them.
While I’m glad they didn’t rush into sex on the first date, some of the follow up dates felt very repetitive and drawn out before any real connection was made. There seemed to be a lot of inner dialogue with each character admitting to a mutual attraction but some of the intensity was missing from their actual interaction with each other.
What worked for me with this story, both characters had flaws. Both had strong drives to succeed and become better than their pasts. The female lead and supporting female lead were good friends and not catty women. Chance having a band of brothers as a good support system. Both willing to take a risk even if it was only short term.
What sort of dimmed the heat for me, I know brothers banter back and forth and that there are put downs and a lot of machismo to go around. The brothers constantly interacting this way made them not as dimensional as I think they probably are.
A little too much inner dialogue build up that could have lead to some steamy passion instead turned into easily glossed over intimacy, and predictable story wrap up. This story had the potential for a lot more I feel. While it was not terrible it just seemed to be missing something.
