"Crashing Into Me is a gripping opening in a series by R.L Jackson, riveting and utterly entertaining, a real gem for fans of contemporary romance. It has been hard for Lana McKenzie to forget the man who'd left her at the altar -- the tall, slim, and insanely handsome Sammy -- for a different girl. A year after the incident, she still gets to see her ex and his girl, which only makes the pain deeper. All she wants is to get away, but then things change abruptly when the rich but bad-boy, Kayden Capshaw, comes crashing into her life. Although he is a very rich guy, Kayden has his own issues to handle, including the loss of his brother, his recent run-ins with the law, and a domineering mother. These two strangers will rock each other's lives in ways they never imagined. But can the fire in their hearts burn for much longer?
R.L Jackson has crafted a novel that is compelling with characters that are real -- emotionally and psychologically strong. The conflict is introduced right off the bat and the reader is keen to follow Lana, self-absorbed and anxious. But she makes a surprising journey towards the conquest of her inner freedom when this new guy comes into her life. I enjoyed the fact that Kayden, though rich in his own right, is presented as inwardly broken and struggling with serious questions in his life. Now, the reader follows the pair as they explore each other's worlds, wondering if they can find themselves in each other. Crashing Into Me is a title that features a great plot, strong characters, and the kind of pacing that makes it hard to put aside. I also enjoyed the graceful prose and the evocative style of writing."

Spoiled and entitled, the son of a socially prominent builder thinks he can buy his way out of everything. The one thing he can't buy is Lana's affection. Forced together during a storm, a steamy romance develops. This time the collision leads to love.
Kayden's manipulative mother has other plans throwing Lana's life once again into turmoil. Lana is forced to make hard choices, protecting the man she loves as well as her own future. Full of fascinating characters, RL Jackson writes a contemporary romance with enough twists to keep the reader engaged from start to finish."- Carole P.
