Three years ago, I "married" my best friend's sister on a dare and the next day, my best friend died. Maggie Mae is back in town and she wants a divorce. The thing is, we're not really married
At least, I didn't think we were...

Remember that guy in high school every girl wanted
Well, that sexy bastard was my brother's best friend
With a mouth that always knew exactly what to say and a body that wouldn't quit
Crash Kane was pure perfection
Perfect until he was almost mine

Remember that girl in high school every guy wanted
Maggie Mae was NOT that girl
While she wasn't every guy's dream
She was mine
She was also my best friend's sister
And, like most guys, I knew the rules

Abandoned love, lost dreams and broken hearts. Sometimes, you're going so fast, you don't feel the CRASH...

Crash is a broody former nascar driver turned mechanic. Maggie is his dead best friend's little sister. He married her on a drunken dare in Vegas but paid off the pastor to never file the paperwork. She would sober up and life would go on as usual, except that was the night her brother died and then she skipped town. 3 years later she is back and wants a divorce. OMG I loved Crash and Maggie. They had that sweet secret childhood love that hasn't faded over the years but neither one has ever owned up to. There as so many twists and turns in this book it will keep you on your toes. I love that the author has made the Kane's such a close knit family that stands behind each other no matter what. I am loving every page of this series and can't wait for more.

Read this emotional, angsty and steamy story today. Crash is the third the ‘Daring The Kane Brothers’ series and follows Crash and Maggie’s story. They married in a fake, ‘dare me’ wedding in Vegas three years ago, but after the death of Maggie’s brother who just happened to be Crash’s best friend they parted ways. Now, Maggie’s back demanding a divorce. But, the attraction that drew them together before is still burning strong and try as they might, they can’t fight it for long. But there are things neither of them knows about the other. Will the truth keep them together or tear them apart forever?

Crash is a winner! Book 3 in Daring the Kane Brothers has truly captured our hearts! This series keeps getting better and leaves us wanting more with every book. Maggie was the woman that every man wanted. She wasn't your average girl. And while she may have been desirable, she was also off limits! Crash was true to his word, but he also was one to never back down from a dare! This trait put Crash in a situation that he had to follow thru with without admitting his true feelings! Now Maggie is back. Crash is faced with the one woman that has always meant something to him and she is ready to walk away from him for good. This means he has to watch her go or find a reason for her to stay. Crash and Maggie draw you in and make you want more. These brothers are winners in my book!

Another one for the records for Kelly. I love her characters and the way she gives them real life problems and solutions. Always entertaining I couldn't stop reading, I had onemorechapteritis and the next day I was useless, but so worth it.

I really enjoyed this book with a storyline that twists and turns. The characters are vibrant and alive. Maggie loved Crash since she was a little girl but due to a tragedy later on they are separated. She returns several years later with some surprises. This is the first time I’ve read this authors work, but I will definitely be watching for more. Good read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Loved this story. Where to start with this review.. I guess I will start on my thoughts about Cash. My heart broke for Cash. Here he was a man that not only lost the girl he loved but his best friends as well. This caused him to have to go through so much. I admired him as well. After hearing his story and seeing where he came from it really makes me think more of him. He was truly an amazing man. Maggie was something but she was also one with a lot of secrets as well. She has a few surprises and is in some serious trouble. She is lucky she has a sexy Knight that is willing to come to her rescue. I so enjoying reading Cash and Maggie’s story and loved how everything came together. Truly a great read.

What happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas, it will eventually haunt you. On a dare, three years ago, Crash "married" his best friend's little sister, Maggie. The next day, his best friend died. Now Maggie was back in town after being MIA for three years, and wanted a divorce. Now, how can she want a divorce when they really weren't married? Are they? Maggie has been in love with Crash like forever, so when the opportunity came of marrying him - she dove head first. But a tragedy had pushed her out of town, and out of his life. She was back now, and she just want one thing - a divorce. It looks like though Crash will give her a hard time first before signing the papers. Crash is very loyal - to a fault. He's a great friend and brother and would do anything for the people he loves. As for Maggie, aw, she has her moments. Admittedly, she might not have the best decisions at some points, but she just means well. I enjoyed reading the book, the air of mystery to it, and the surprises one after the other. I was like, this issue is about to be resolved and I'm just around 60% or so in my reading, only to find out that there were bigger secrets and issues between the two. CRASH is a story of love and second chances.

Soooo Good!! After disaster struck leaving Crash and Maggie in a bed in Vegas and learning of Josh’s death things went downhill from there. Josh was Maggie’s brother and best friends with Crash. They’ve been friends since childhood and Maggie was always the little sister that tagged around after them whenever she could. Crash knew the “bro code” of keeping your hands off the best friend’s little sister but that didn’t stop Maggie from having the feelings she did for Crash. After Josh’s funeral Maggie took off and Crash was kicked out of NASCAR. There were so many secrets which didn’t come to light until years later. Now Maggie’s back and she needs Josh to sign divorce papers….wait, what?!! Oh, yeah they were married in Vegas. Or were they? There are so many twists and turns in this book that I couldn’t put it down. I had to get to the bottom of things just like Maggie and Crash were trying to do. Secret after secret is revealed only to keep my head spinning. Excellent writing job yet again and I’ve come to expect nothing else from this author. She knows how to pull you in and keep you at the edge of your seat.

CRASH is the third instalment in Kelly Gendron’s contemporary, adult DARING THE KANE BROTHERS erotic, romance series focusing on the Kane brothers –Token, Nix, Steele and Crash Kane-a spin off from the author’s BREAKING THE DECLAN BROTHERS series. This is twenty-six year old, former NASCAR driver and mechanic Crash Kane, and twenty-four year old Maggie Mae’s story line. CRASH can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Crash and Maggie) CRASH is a multi-troped story line following the second chance, secret marriage, best friend’s little sister, rekindling romance between is twenty-six year old, former NASCAR driver and mechanic Crash Kane, and twenty-four year old Maggie Mae. Three years earlier the world as they knew it was torn apart and shredded when Maggie’s brother, Crash’s best friend Josh was killed on the track but not before Crash and Maggie participated in a drunken, quickie Vegas wedding, a wedding Crash thought had been annulled on the spot. Fast forward to present day wherein the woman with whom Crash hasn’t seen or spoken returns to their home town, keeping secrets that threaten the people he loves. What ensues is the rebuilding relationship and romance between Crash and Maggie, and the potential fall-out as Maggie’s past demands retribution, and Crash discovers the secrets Maggie was hoping to keep hidden. Maggie has loved Crash for most of her life but death of her brother Josh brought with it the death of her relationship with Crash Kane. Returning home meant facing the man she hadn’t stopped loving, a return meant to move on with her life to protect the people she loved. Crash Kane had no idea the secrets Maggie kept but learning they were still married gave Crash a second chance at a happily ever after, a second chance that came with more secrets and surprises. Having taken the blame for Josh’s demise, Crash remained silent until his own secrets were revealed. The relationship between Crash and Maggie is one of second chances; a best friend’s little sister, secret marriage that Crash thought was over, and Maggie wanted done. The palpable sexual attraction and desire did not go unnoticed by family and friends. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The colorful secondary and supporting characters include Crash’s parents, and Maggie’s mother Bridget Knight.We are reintroduced to Crash’s brothers Token, Nix and Steele, as well as Jax and Emmie Declan, and Zeke Declan and Lurlene Kane (The Declan Brothers Series) and Crash’s roommate Jaggs. The requisite evil has many faces. CRASH is a story of family, friendship, loss and love. The premise is heart breaking, emotional and entertaining; the romance is seductive and hot; the characters are dynamic, lively and charismatic. CRASH is a sexy, sensitive and moving story of second chances and happily ever after.

Crash received an unexpected visit from Maggie, wanting a divorce! Things spiral from there. Both are still in love with each other. I liked Crash and even Maggie, they have endearing qualities. It was a cute story.

So much heartbreak, so many misunderstandings yet there is hope that love will prevail. Maggie has loved Crash her whole life but she was in the ‘friend zone’ since her brother Josh was Crash’s best friend. When she dared him to marry her, she never dreamed he would do it but then the unthinkable happened and Josh died. Maggie fled and now, 3 years later, she is back. She is in trouble and needs to get Crash to divorce her to protect him from her mistakes. Crash’s world shattered when Josh died. Not only did he lose Josh but he lost Maggie too, the girl he will always love. When she lands back on his track, he is shocked and excited. What he never expects is for her to ask for a divorce. He thought he made sure the wedding wasn’t legal. These two have to traverse a minefield of emotions as they face how they truly feel while dealing with the pain from their past. Maggie also has to handle her current problems which Crash won’t let her do alone and, I have to say, he deals with in spectacular fashion. (This just reinforced my love for the Declan and Kane brothers.) Maggie and Crash are incredible together which had me rooting for them even as more surprises unfolded. Of course, will they find forgiveness for themselves as well as each other to truly let love guide them. It was so much fun finding out if they would. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
