I received this book for free from the Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

 As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

 When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.

 

Review

Melissa Foster writes sweet and emotional romances so well and CRASHING INTO LOVE is just that: sweet and emotional. Fiona Steele has a good life, a successful career and everything anyone would want except one thing: love. And not just anyone’s love. She wants the only man she has ever loved, her high school sweetheart Jake Braden whose heart she broke when she left him behind to go to college. It’s been over fifteen years but Fiona never got over him and when the opportunity presents itself, she takes a leave of absence from her job and sets off to win Jake back.

And Jake. Jake wants what his siblings have: loving relationships with their partners but after being badly hurt by Fiona, he closed himself off even though he was down for getting it on with as many females as made themselves available. With his career as a movie stuntman, willing females are always available.

I have to say that Fiona was bold and tenacious. She took a huge risk and just kept at it even when Jake was not receptive to talking to her. She completely opened herself to a world of hurt when she could have cut her losses and moved on after the first couple of rejections. And it paid off for her. She got her man back!

I love that Ms. Foster kept the angst and drama to a minimum and instead focused on how Jake and Fiona worked on re-building their relationship. Jake had buried his feelings for Fiona so deep and was understandably reluctant to revisit the past with Fiona, but when he allowed himself to remember, he was all in and from then on it was about connecting with her again and making sure that his lifestyle in no way affected what he had with her.  CRASHING INTO LOVE is an amazing story about a second chance at love and is actually my favorite of the series so far.
