Totally awesome start to the story, but that’s not where the awesomeness stops. This tale of the seedy gutter, drugs, double-crossing, money, dirty cops and wishes for the fairytale ending had me immediately pegging it with the word, meaty. Every character had their place and was well written. I don’t think there was a scene that I couldn’t imagine from the authors description.
There are a couple of things the beta in me frowned at, such as body parts having minds of their own, e.g. My hands liked to pinch at Chris’s nipples. I’ve been informed many times by editors that, it’s among the thing a writer shouldn’t do. And if readers didn’t frown about it, I suspect, neither would editors. But if the Loose Id editors found it acceptable, then... but it is one of the things I, too, look out for and tut at when I see it.
All that being said, Crashing Blue had me trying to guess who was playing and double-crossing whom. It had my heart in knots and had me reading this story at every available moment. It is a story that I was able to sink my teeth into. I found it meaty, exciting, and the drama kept me on the edge of my seat, right to the end. It is one hell of a ride. If you like crime stories where you aren’t able to guess who the bad guy is within the first few chapters, you will love this.

Della is a new to me author and one I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for. This story starts off strong and barely lets up, so strap yourself in for one hell of a ride.
As per the blurb Cabot is an undercover cop. I’ve read many crime stories, but what made me sit up and pay attention to this one, was the blurred lines between love and loyalties, law enforcement and criminals.
There are a couple of sex scenes, even though they aren’t necessary to drive the plot. In fact, this could have been a five star read for me without them. Gasp, did I as a self-confessed smut lover just say that? I did. The reason, I don’t find analogies like this erotic – “I had a fleeting image of merry-go-rounds and me as one of the rides with a pole firmly inserted.” Or, “I thought about seizing a kiss as I crammed fingers into my ass.” Now before anyone gets upset I realize we all like different things, so my quotes could very well help with sales.
Oh, and one final irk. The reference to BDSM bordered on being offensive, to me. However, given the story is not BDSM I won’t go any further into the issue.
So, back to the plot. The story is told completely from Cabot’s point of view, and it worked perfectly well that way. The characters were well fleshed out, and I became highly invested in them. An absolute must for my reading enjoyment. I couldn’t even begin to fathom how all the events were going to play out. And just when I thought I had it all figured out, I was thrown one final loop. The point I’m trying to make is that the plot is far from predictable, which is another thing I loved about it.
I highly recommend this story to those who like edge of your seat suspenseful plots, when the stakes are high and nothing is as it seems.

I’m a sucker for crime and suspense stories especially if they’re interwoven with a strong romance. This book excelled at the crime drama but I felt the romance was a little lacking.
Francisco Cabot is a cop who has been undercover for so long he has trouble separating the fake him from the real him. After one case he is determined to rescue a mobster’s male whore named Snow. In order to get to him he worms his way back into the crime scene.
There was some parts of the plot that seemed confusing, but I looked past it because of the well-written action.
Cabot ends up falling for Christopher Caldwell, the son of the city’s biggest criminal. They were hot together but I never felt any real emotions between them. Were they in love? I suppose so, based on what they do for each other. However, I never really felt the emotions.
I enjoyed the various twists and turns throughout and was thrilled there was an HEA, considering I wasn’t sure that would be possible.
