Review: CRASH INTO ME by Sharona Troy

4 of 5 stars

How far would you run to escape your past? For Serena Kowlachuk, it is to the remote mountains of Alberta, Canada where she hopes her simple life along with her faithful hound, Ranger, and four horses can banish her nightmares forever.

Life has a funny way of upsetting even the best laid plans though. When she pulls injured helicopter pilot, Connor Branson, from a fiery crash near her home, she has no idea she has unwittingly alerted her past enemies to her presence. Time is running out. Can she keep Connor safe while she tries to eliminate her enemies once and for all?

CRASH INTO ME is engaging from the opening pages where we are privy to Serena's inner thoughts. I immediately wanted to know more about her and her past life. What had happened that made her shut down her emotions completely? What was she running from?  The author does a great job of slowly revealing Serena's back story while keeping the reader fully engaged with what's happening between her and Connor.  Even injured, Connor exudes sex appeal. He is like no one Serena has ever known and she struggles against any interactions beyond nursing him back to health. The sexual tension between Serena and Connor is palpable - a living, breathing thing of its own. Throw in some bad guys out for revenge and you've got a thoroughly enjoyable romantic suspense story. Recommended.
