Crash Into Me by Tracy Wolff is a great addition to rock star romance. Not only does it have badass rockers, but also a sweet and stubborn friends to lovers story. Shaken Dirty is just about to really make it big and the five bandmates are rock and roll incarnate. They ooze sex appeal, rock, drugs, sex, and emotional issues that make them irresistible to the ladies. Ryder, lead singer, amazing guitarist, and broken man, suddenly sees the sexy woman Jamison is and wants her. But standing in his way are her brother, the lead guitarist for Shaken Dirty, Ryder's own feelings of inadequacy, and a heaping helping of band drama. One of the awesome things about Ryder and his bandmates is that their emotional issues are real. Drugs, sex, rock and roll: they mask the pain in each of them. Ryder's pain is fueled by guilt over past inaction and a lack of family. His loyalty to Jared, Jamison's brother and his own self-imposed need to take care of the rest of the band also work against him. It's Ryder who has the character arc here. For her part, Jamison is the quintessential little sister of the best friend. In love with Ryder forever, she handles rejection the only way she knows how: removing herself from the situation. When changes in her life throw them back together, she makes the best of it, but fights against her attraction. Her chemistry and friendship with the band runs deep, and is demonstrated constantly. The easy affection evident through dialogue and action. This is definitely a rock star story. It has it all: the music, the sex, the drugs, the drama. Against this backdrop, Ryder has to learn to love and accept love. The gritty reality of these broken bandmates counteracts what could otherwise have been a saccharine story. Excellent tension, wonderful characters, and great high drama come together for an irresistible mix. You'll want to become a fan of Shaken Dirty early in their careers so you get the full wild ride.

Jamison is having a really bad week - she lost her job, her car and her boyfriend, and then to top it all off, she is almost raped backstage at a concert in which her brother's band is playing. Luckily, she's saved by Ryder, the lead singer of her brother's band, Shaken Dirty, and the object of her lust for the past 10 years or so. After finding out her situation, Jared convinces his sister to come on the road with the band for seven weeks. With no other options, Jamison agrees, even though it puts her in VERY close proximity to the one guy she wants but can't have. Like most rock band series, Crash Into Me focuses on one member of the band - the lead singer Ryan - but it introduces the other members of the band because I'm assuming we'll see books on each of them in the series. The groundwork is being laid, so a certain amount of time is spent on the back stories of all the band members. Wolff still gives us plenty of time with Ryder and Jamison, though. I loved Ryan's and Jamison's relationship. I really love the romances where the two involved started out as friends first. These two have known each other since they were kids. That adds an extra layer of complexity to the situation. Neither wants to mess up the friendship, yet they're now having a really hard time denying what more they could have. It's great because they know each other well enough to engage in some really fun banter and to tell each other off when they feel the need. Yet, the feelings are new, so there's a certain amount of awkwardness between them too. Jamison is a cool character. She's got a strong work ethic and doesn't easily let circumstances get her down. She's been pining after the same guy for a decade for crying out loud. She's a fighter, for sure. And, Ryder is totally swoony. He's a lead singer in a rock band... hellooo?? But, beyond that, I just LOVE how he loves his friends. He looks after them and only wants the best for them - Jamison included. This guy is a total class-act. There were several side stories going on at the same time as Ryder's and Jamison's. They focused mostly on Jared, the lead guitarist and Wyatt, the drummer. They didn't detract from the main story, though. The ending did feel a little rushed - I wish the author had taken another 50 pages or so to expound on some of the stuff that happened. A lot of stuff happened toward the end, and it all was crammed into not a lot of pages. I would've liked a bit more time and words to process it all. I can say for sure that I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment of Shaken Dirty. I want to know who those characters were that were introduced in the epilogue. I want to see Jared and Wyatt happy (I hope Wyatt's story is next!). I want to learn more about the other two members of the band. This series is definitely on my watch list.

Tracy Wolff tells us the story of Jamison and Ryder have known each other since they were kids.  She has always loved him and he has always known she was off-limits since he was her brother's friend.  After losing everything, Jamison needs to go on the road with the band and they find themselves delving into their feelings for each other.  I think it would have helped if I had read this book first instead of the second book in the series.  An overall decent read.

Crash Into Me is a best friends little sister romance with a rock star twist. Jamison has had a crush on Ryder since they were little kids and Ryder knows it. However, her brother and Ryder’s best friend has made it very clear that his baby sister is off limits. However, when Jamison loses her job and becomes the banks chef, the tight quarters become too much for Ryder to handle and pretty soon they find themselves in the one spot that Ryder didn’t want to end up in. I’m a sucker for these types of romances. I just love them and I don’t know why. Plus, I’m always a huge fan of celebrity romances. So when you combine the two it comes out as one awesome story. The story doesn’t just focus on Jamison and Ryder though. Since Jamison is on tour with the guys, we get to see their struggles with fame. Jamison’s brother struggles with the separation from his fiance, another band mate struggles with drug use, and another is just so far into the rock star fame that he doesn’t care about anyone or anything around him. The romance was steamy and by far the best part of the story. This is a great book to read if you’re looking for a sexy romance to read. I will definitely be keeping up with the Shaken team.

Sweet and super hot, Crash Into Me was a wonderful romance read. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book. Jamison had been in love with Ryder, her brother's best friend and band mate, for years, but he never let her get too close. But, when the opportunity arose for her to get one night with him, she let go of her doubts and just let it happen. But, then it happened again. And again. And, suddenly, it wasn't just a one night thing. I really liked Jamison. She was a strong woman who didn't let anyone run all over her. She was independent, but she also knew when to (reluctantly) admit she needed help. I liked her. She was a lovely heroine. Ryder was complicated. He didn't want to have another girlfriend after what happened to his previous one, so he contented himself with one night stands since then. But, when it came to Jamison, it was never going to be just a one night stand, though Ryder was loath to admit that. I wish there had been a little more about Ryder's past. Specifically, about his old girlfriend. It was there, a little, but I thought it could have been more in depth. But, for the most part, I liked him. He was really sweet and adorable. The romance was on fire. Jamison and Ryder had years worth of thwarted lust between them, and it showed. The chemistry between them was constant and, when they finally got together, it was super hot. But, they were also sweet together. They were a perfect match. I thought they were a lovely couple. The plot was well paced. I was kept interested the entire way through, though I wasn't totally hooked. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely. Crash Into Me was super hot, very sweet, and a lovely romance read. I really enjoyed reading it. Lovers of romance, if you want something to spice up your day, then this is a book you'll want to check out. *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I was very hesitant to read this book. Every single romance novel I've read featuring a rock star never came off realistic. The men never acted like men and it was obvious there was little research done into the life of a rock star. This novel avoided the normal fluff in favor of believable storylines. Having known band members personally, I can tell you the behavior she wrote about is very real. Drug abuse and women are all over the place, band members don't always get along, and tour buses really do stink. It's so refreshing to read a romance novel where the author actually had knowledge of the lifestyle. In my experience, most are fluffy and rarely delve into the dark side. The characters were great as well. Jamison Matthews is a fantastic heroine because she's not some silly fangirl. She stands on her own and is well-rounded. I also love that she's a smidge on the chubby side. It's nice to see shapely women in romance novels. Every type of women should be represented in romance, but unfortunately, most are skinny and beautiful. Ryder Montgomery was a fantastic hero because he wasn't perfect. There was a dark, sexiness about him which made it easy for fall for him. I also loved that he was attracted to Jamison's shapely figure. Not every man wants an uber skinny woman, so again, it's refreshing to see it in romance. All-in-all, I am impatiently waiting for the next book in this series. Tracy Wolff is an author I will be watching. :-)

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 4 out of 5 Licks Bands are all the rage right now and I am loving it!! Ryder is your typical brooding singer and he has a forbidden attraction to his band mates sister. Jamison has wanted Ryder for years. After her brother convinces her to go on tour with the band, she and Ryder can no longer deny the passion building between them. Feelings are growing deeper, but Ryder is so torn up about his past he can't move forward. After lots of emotional turmoil the band finds out the two of them have been sneaking around together. Parts of this book broke my heart, some made me a little hot under the collar, and in the end it just made me happy. That's why I love reading. I get to escape to a new world and live so many emotional experiences. We even get an epilogue which makes me happier than much else. :) I can't wait to see what the rest of the series brings!

It was good book. I look forward to reading the series. I really wish she would have went into more detail at the end but its a typical romance. They never seem to give you more detail about what happens after.

It was really good, could not put the book down and finished it in one day. Love books where the characters grew up together, but in this situation, Jamison's brother, Jared made all of his friends swear off of dating his younger sister, Jamison, but Jamison has been in love with Ryder for 10years and makes her move. Drive Me Crazy, book 2 is equally good and can't wait to read the stories of the other members in the band.

Definitely a great read. The characters have known each other for most of their lives. She is his best friend's younger sister. He is a rock star that has a lot of demons and a very low opinion of himself. This story line has been done a thousand times before but this author gives it a little twist and makes it fresh. I love the way that they get back together in the end. A wonderful HEA. Read and enjoy.

love the whole rock star on tour story. love this book!not just the steamy parts but the actual story too, the development of the characters and how their relationship evolved from friends to much more. although the fact that Ryder's a rock star with tattoos and an awesome voice doesnt hurt.

This was a pretty good book, very predictable and a bit rushed. I doubt if I'll read any of the others in this series.
