Review: Crash Into You by Katie McGarry

Review: Crash Into You by Katie McGarry

Even though my rating for Crash Into You isn’t great, and even though it’s my least favorite of the Pushing the Limits series, I would still recommend it to fans of NA-ish contemporary romance.  I, however, have grown tired of the glut of controlling and sometimes violent behavior exhibited by the male characters in this genre.  To be clear, Crash Into You doesn’t come close to glorifying this behavior as books like Hopeless and Ten Tiny Breaths do.  But still,… Read more »

Amy’s father is rich.  Rich, as in, “Hey, let’s take my beautiful yacht and go sail around the world” rich.  Spoiled, sullen, surly Amy is reluctantly dragged along.  She hates everything, especially her stepmother who… Read more »

But I finally bit the bullet, and here we are! I was still getting comfortable with Blogger, and now I’m trying to learn WordPress. I know there are things I need to clean up (duplicate posts from importing, re-formatting some my old posts, updating all of my old reviews with the… Read more »
