The Stronger, Safer Kind
(The Boys of DownCrash #1)

All Scarlett wanted to do was thank the sexy stranger who helped her push away a drunk, grabby college boy at a bar. When that stranger identifies himself as Tripp and then takes the stage as the lead singer and guitarist for rock band, DownCrash, everything in Scarlett's life begins to change.

Her best friend, Andy, confesses his love for her and leaves her with what should be an easy decision to make... yet each time she looks in Andy's eyes, she can't help but face her secret, nightmarish past.

The only thing that makes Scarlett feel better is Tripp... but Tripp isn't just a bad boy rockstar, he's hurt. He's in pain. He tries to hide his pain in a bottle, but Scarlett believes that, perhaps, their secrets can help each other.

Friendship and love is suddenly put to the test, and Scarlett is torn... Will she choose an easy, comfortable, happy life or a life clouded with mixed signals, raw emotion, and intense romance?

    "I feel bad for him, and sort of guilty. I know I'll regret

    "I feel bad for him, and sort of guilty. I know I'll regret feeling guilty. I'll fight it later in life and everyone will tell me not to feel guilty."




    The Stronger, Safer Kind is about Scarlett who is trying to move on with her life in college. She has been best friends with this guy named Andy and her roommate Maggie. She meets the lead singer of DownCrash, Tripp and boy do sparks fly. This was a typical new adult as there are adult themes/topics and of course steamy love scenes.




    "Everything stopped. No more music. No more beautiful song. No more moment."




    Scarlett was alright. She definitely went through some rough times. To me she fell a little flat. Other than being super indecisive and traumatized, there wasn't really much there. When she finally stepped up and made her decision, I did like her better. She showed a bit more of her personality which was nice. Once she finally fessed up with what had happened to her, she seemed to have changed. It was like that was holding her back.




    "My heart twisted a little more. A with each painful twist I felt my hand slipping away from Andy and gripping Tripp more."




    Andy was alright also. He did care about Scarlett and tried to do right by her. He was a bit clingy and oblivious, but it was obvious he wanted to be with her and only her. There were moments when I didn't really like him. He was somewhat hypocritical in parts-being pushy when he said he'd give her space. I wish there was more Maggie. She seemed cool from what you know about her, but it looks like she is the focus of the next in the series so I'm excited to learn more about her.




    "Tripp had romance buried inside him, in his own way."




    Tripp was the main redeeming factor for me. He was hot and honest. He didn't really pretend to be anything other than himself. He also had a rough time growing up, but handled it MUCH differently than Scarlett. He was pretty open about most things and was able to get Scarlett to face her demons as well. My favorite part though was he didn't try to act any differently than expected. He's a (super) hot rockstar. Of course he's going to flirt with the ladies.




    I didn't really like how some of the people dealt with their problems. Drinking is not the answer. At least by the end there was that realization and they moved on, but still. Also there were missing words here and there so you had to re-read certain parts just to be sure you understood what was happening. The love scenes were HOT. Because of those alone I wouldn't recommend this to anyone really under 17 years old. I wish there was more connections with the characters instead of just lust, but I guess you can look at it as love at first sight. Overall this was well-written and I enjoyed it. I just expected and wanted more out of the characters.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
    This book is about Scarlett and Tripp. Scarlett and Tripp both have secrets in there past. Their story was very well written and I enjoyed reading it. London Casey did a great job making the characters come to life. I would definitely recommend it.
