ARC Review ~ Crashed (Axle Alley Vipers, #1) by Sherilee Gray

Crashed (Axle Alley Vipers, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: July 14th 2015

Publisher: Indulgence (Entangled Published)

She swore never to trust him again...

Fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco should have known better. Years ago, her best friends' older brother took her virginity and broke her heart-or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. And Alex definitely should not have indulged in another hot night with him after the fact. He's not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn't want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he's become.

Walking away from Alex was the biggest mistake of Deacon West's life. She belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. If she'll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair, he won't sell the building Alex and his sisters use for their auto repair business. Hell, he'll even sign it over to them. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?

My Opinion

I don't usually read books from the Indulgence line of Entangled Publishing. However, this one caught my eye for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with the hot guy on the cover ... Honestly, it didn't ...

Anyway, when I finally stopped admiring the cover, the blurb intrigued me. I'm all for second chance romances, especially when there's a twist such as scheming and deals. What's not to love?

Crashed was a gripping, hot read. It held my interest the whole way through and had my heart racing at times. The characters were well developed and even though there was plenty of lying, scheming, and miscommunication they were people I rooted for. Despite the deal Deacon and Alex made, they were likeable and I believed in their chemistry. It didn't feel forced and I liked the intensity between them.

I will admit that Deacon probably could have saved himself a lot of hassle by opening up sooner, but then there wouldn't have been a story. He was a mixture of strong, dominant CEO and then softer, gentler lover trying to win Alex back.

Moreover, I think Alex was a good character. I liked the girls were all mechanics, and Alex had a sharp tongue. I loved the way she pushed Deacon's buttons with her snarky comments.

Overall this was a really enjoyable read. It was hot, kept me turning the pages, and had a feel good ending.
