Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Crashing Into You by: B.D. Rowe

Bookish college sophomore Sydney Baker wants Evan Taylor with every ounce of her being. The hottest stud on campus, Evan is six foot four, ripped, stacked with muscles. He's even easy to talk to.

There's just one problem: he's her roommate Melanie's boyfriend.

But when Melanie tragically dies after a night of wild partying, Sydney and Evan turn to each other in a time of intense grief. And it doesn't take long for their close friendship to blossom into something more.

Unfortunately for Sydney, secrets from the past soon put her relationship with Evan to the test. Especially when a sexy blonde freshman makes her way into Evan's life, and tries to rip away everything Sydney holds close to her heart.

**Mature Situations and Sexual Content - Recommended for Ages 17+**

(I received this novel from the author for an honest review.)

Crashing Into You was a heartbreaking story.  I found myself laughing a little, but crying often.  I think I can sum it up by saying, you know a book is going to be good when you get goosebumps after reading the first chapter.  Crashing Into You did this to me.

I felt the agony Sydney felt as I read her story.  After surviving a horrific experience she was determined to never repeat the past.  Sure to the outside world she may appear to be a prude, but she had good reason to be reserved.  I really liked her character.

The character I had a hard time understanding was Evan.  He had moments when he was sweet and I really liked him.  But as the story progressed I felt more and more disconnected from him.  Honestly, I thought he was sort of a douche bag.  I could understand Sydney's attraction to him at the beginning of the story, but as the plot unfolded I just wanted to tell Sydney to run and to punch Evan in the face.

Now don't let my love-hate relationship with Evan sway you.  This novel was very well written and had a great moral.  I believe after you read it you will understand where I am coming from.

Happy reading!!
