Crashed by Sherilee Gray

c sg bookcoverShe 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?

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars

The book to me wasn’t a light hearted read, I didn’t care for Deacon at first as he sexually blackmailed Alex all because she wanted to keep the garage for her and his sisters and he was threatening to kick them out but as the story went on I did warm up to him despite him getting jealous every five minutes the only thing that did make me go off him yet again was when his manipulative ex wife turned up and he was gullible despite knowing what she was like during the marriage and he put Alex second during all this.
Alex I did like and I liked how strong she was despite her being abandoned and passed from home to home as a child, I liked how she coped to getting blackmailed by Deacon though I didn’t like how she kept referring herself to being a whore and when Deacon was constantly accusing her of cheating even when she was just talking to a man, I did like how she stood up for herself and how she stuck up for herself when it come the ex wife’s bitchy friends and I would have like to have seen the ex wife get her comeuppance but for some reason she didn’t.
