When reckless meets responsible… Straight A student Kathryn Lane is all work and no play. She’s determined to keep her scholarship, and that means no distractions…until she takes a summer internship at Stone Cliff Resort and meets bad boy Noah Ryan. She knows she should keep her distance-after all he’s not the kind of guy she can bring home to daddy-but his disarming smile and dangerous ways are entirely too tempting. College dropout, Noah Ryan takes one look at Kathryn and instantly knows her type-ambitious, driven and determined, just like he used to be, before the accident that derailed his life and left him an emotional wreck. He vows to avoid her, but when a co-worker backs him into a bet he can’t refuse, everything he’s been running from is challenged and he’s forced to confront his demons. Soon, Kathryn and Noah are lost to everything except each other. As their lives become entwined, their passion is reckless, their heat all-consuming but when hurtful truths spill out, can Noah prove himself worthy of the one girl who can heal his wounded heart, or will the fire they ignited turn to ash when it all comes crashing down?
I’m just going to keep this review short and sweet. Crashing Down was a super quick, and easy read for me. It was a fun summer read. I enjoyed the friendship between Amy and Kathryn. I really felt like Amy helped pull Kathryn out of her shell and showed her how to live. Noah was a great bad boy, but there was more to him than meets the eye. My issue with Noah was that yes he was a bad boy, but I felt like he never changed. Ok, Maybe some small changes here or there, but nothing really significant. I just didn’t connect with him.
Overall, I thought this book was ok. It definitely had some HOT, sexy, moments and I loved the friendship between Amy and Kathryn. I liked the idea of this book and thought it had some good themes to it, I just needed more. Even though this book didn’t quite work out exactly as I hoped, I’d still be interested in checking out other works from this author.
