Fine he muttered telling himself he was doing it for Olivia for Carly and even for Lisette Not because he had any interest in spending time with Special Agent Sonora Vasuez or etting wrapped up in her

09CAUTION HINT OF SPOILERI was moved by the secondary story about two teens who were hurting and how they unexpectedly were ood for each other Reviewed for wwwbookchickcitycomCRASH INTO ME immediately hooked me in during the first few pages Sonny was the type of heroine I love tough brave determined and kick ass You see her kick a fellow cocky male agent s butt in the first chapter and can t help but The Bodhisattva's Brain : Buddhism Naturalized grinOur hero is sexy recluse and surf pro Ben if a little arrogant trying to raise his slightly wayward teenage daughter and hiding himself away from the world since his wife s murder which he became a prime suspect for As another woman is found murdered in exactly the same way Sonnyoes in under cover with the aim of Dark Tapestry (Colin and Leora Mysteries) getting close to BenThere are many parts to the plot The core of it focuses around the murder mystery there are several contenders for the villain and the story weaves its way cleverly until the end I diduess the killer but I seem to be doing that a lot lately maybe I m reading too many mysteries So I didn t hold that against it Then you have the relationship between Sonny and Ben the relationship between Ben and his daughter Carly who is self harming herself and there is the love story between Carly and James an abused but brave fisherman s son There are so many components and James an abused but brave fisherman s son There are so many components abused but brave fisherman s son There are so many components to story that it is a very detailed and layered book It is written with obvious warmth and passion but it also becomes perhaps slightly cumbersome at times because of it There was a hell of a lot oing on romance teen romance suspense and murder mystery as well as drug and psychological problems it could easily have been stretched out into two booksI loved both love stories that of Ben and Sonny which was fiery sexy complex and wild Then in contrast the tenderness and youth of Carly and James was a lovely comparison The rown up relationship tempered the angst of the young adult one Each character has ot some very serious issues As I mentioned Carly self harms and James has an abusive father then you have Ben who is a recovered alcoholicdrug addict and Sonny herself who has been raped years before It doesn t make this book a light read but it does make it interesting and each of the characters rounded and multi dimensionalThe undercover part of the story was the part that didn t always sit that comfortably You watch Ben and Sonny begin to fall in love where Ben doesn t even know Sonny s real name and she s running behind his back stealing items for evidence There s a part of me that knows this was meant to be part of the is he isn t he the killer plot but it didn t make the love story very clean for a while and in eneral I like clear cutI disliked how Sonny went through a stage of inadvertently doing everything to discredit herself as a ood cop Sleeping with the suspect lying about developments hiding evidence and not confessing her own personal involvement It all went a bit too far Especially as Sonny is portrayed as such a career cop it didn t sit well with how her character I think is because I liked her so much it annoyed me that she did such crazy thingsBut as much as these elements irritated I still really did enjoy this story I loved how Ben was arrogant at the beginning thinking how easy it would be to sleep with Sonny and she led him on a merry dance The Carly and James story really was lovely I think James was the best character of the book actually so brave and tortured and noble Carly did need a ood slap a couple of times but she Okinawa: The Last Battle of World War II grew on me The surfing setting wasreat I loved the beach and was jealous of the The GI Bride glorious weatherVERDICTCRASH INTO ME did have a few issues where there was too muchoing on or the characters didn t behave in a way either I didn t like or didn t uite sit well There was also some personal developments in Sonny s life that didn t et concluded But overall it was a really ood read with some reat romance agai. Though he's one into virtual seclusion Ben Fortune is still the world's most famous surfer known as much for his ood looks as for his skill He's also a suspect in a series of brutal murders that may have begun with his late wife Now FBI Special Agent Sonora Sonny Vasuez has been sen. ,
The balance between all the stories and subplots was perfect Never did I have the urge to skip some pages to et to the The Million Dollar Goal (The Million Dollar Series, good part Everything just fit together2 The characterization in this book was also perfect I love when an authorives us such an insight into their characters but doesn t make it too subtle I hate when we are thrown from one internal discussion into the next It has to fit the story and shouldn t feel forced Sorenson did just that and so much I can t remember many books where I felt such a deep connection to the characters They were shown in so much detail they actually jumped off the pages for me3 The story itself was really sad but all the rather heavier topics were handled with so much love and care that you just couldn t look away This book forces you to keep reading even when you think that you would prefer not to read about this My heart still hurts when I think about parts of this story But on the other hand we have those moments full of love which balance out the sad parts4 In addition to 1 I have to admit something I know I m one of those big YA deniers who just out of protest don t read this The Selected Poems genre and here I caught myself adoring a YA plot It just totally blew me away but I m also sure I wouldn t have liked it if it would have only been YA I think the mix totally does it for me5 I m not a huge suspense fan but Crash Into Me kept me on the edge of my seat and I may have mentioned this before I couldn t put it down The plot was never too prominent or pushed the romance into the background but it was always there reminding you that something horrible happened and you could already feel the doom approaching And yep I didn t see the end comingAs you can see I loved this book it had everything I love about books and so much I had high expectations and this book didn t disappoint at all it exceeded everything I could have imagined before I started it LOVED it If you haven t read this author I urge you toive her a try I was blown away and I hope you will be too And yes I already started my next Jill Sorenson novel A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing
