My First Thoughts: Sometimes, our perfect life plans work out and sometimes, they don't. Sometimes, fate has other ideas. Sometimes, life hands us lemons. It's our choice what we do with them.
Truth or dare...
Erin Robinson is having an epically bad year. Her blossoming career on Broadway tanked, forcing her to crawl back to home to Wellington. The icing on her failure cake? Her former on-again, off-again fling is in town, and the sexy Marine is taking up way too much space.
Warren Davis always knew Erin was special, which is exactly why he can't have her. A girl like her deserves something permanent--something neither of them wants. But now that they're both back in town and she's right there in front of him, a challenge in her eyes he's never been able to resist, he's questioning everything.
That challenge quickly escalates into an epic game of Truth or Dare. Erin's sure she's got him on lock, but as the night progresses, Warren's dares intensify, drowning her in lust. But with the past still breathing down their necks, there's no way either of them can win…
The snow is falling and Christmas bells are ringing as Erin finds herself back in the small town where she grew up. It's not just a brief visit this time as she's out of luck and out of a job. Her lifelong dream of making it big on Broadway came crashing down when she was fired from what was to be a starring role. She's back in town to lick her wounds, recoup, and decide what to do next. Warren Davis is also back in town - for good this time. The ex-marine's injuries will keep him from going back to Afghanistan. He has some decisions of his own to make, and he's decided to make Erin part of his permanent future. Now all he has to do is convince her that it's what she wants too.
Crashed Out takes place mostly over one evening & day as Erin and Warren reconnect. They've been friends with benefits for several years, meeting up when they both happen to be in town and then going their own separate ways. Warren is ready for more - he knows he has one shot at convincing Erin that they are right for each other, that they should take a chance at a permanent relationship. And so, he proposes a game of Truth or Dare that Erin can't refuse. As they spend the night sparring back and forth, traveling around the snowy town, playing out their game, the sparks fly. Who will win this game of Truth or Dare? At what cost?
Crashed Out is a short read but it's jam-packed with great scenes - intense, hot, erotic, sweet, funny . . . it's got it all. I couldn't help but get swept up in Warren's game to win Erin's heart. The longer they played, the hotter it got as he knew exactly what buttons to push. Before their game ended, they both learned that sometimes, life hands you lemons. It's your choice what you do with them. Sometimes, you just have to play the hand fate deals you. If you trust enough, love enough, and are willing to take a chance, you just might find what you're looking for. A Must Read!
