Crash Into Us by Shana Vanterpool
🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 FIVE hats from Red!!
Shana Vanterpool is quickly becoming my favorite author. Crash Into Us was real, raw, and hopeful. Ms. Vanterpool has a way of squeezing every bit of emotion from you, and I love it. I’m addicted to it. The writing was beyond phenomenal. The characters were so real and raw that I ached for them. Jasmeen and Gavin were undeniably made for each other. From the first meeting at the age of ten their hearts connected and refused to let go. After a lot of heartache they found themselves again and when they found themselves they found each other. Gavin will come across, at first, as a cocky jerk. He is one, but he’s so much more. His entire being is centered around Jasmeen and it takes a huge accident to find that out. Jasmeen is lost. She’s so lost in herself she doesn’t even know it. Old hurts being new hurts. Yet as much as she tried to deny it, she’s still connected to Gavin. She always will be.
I’m in love with this story and I know I will read it again and again. The drive to be together, the hurt they cause each other, I want to feel it all over and over again. Why? Because the ending is so worth the pain at the beginning. Shana Vanterpool is an absolute whiz at the words. I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us in the future!

They met when they were kids.
They were friends, lovers, and then husband and wife.
They were supposed to be together forever.
He was her Superman.
She was his happiness.
And then he went pro.
And she doubted something that was supposed to be forever.
Mistakes were made in exchange for dreams, and hearts were shattered.
Their forever crumbled right before their eyes.
He went on to play for the Washington Warriors. He ate, breathed, and slept professional hockey. All he had left after her was the ice. He was in magazines, he won a Stanley Cup, and he had a crowd of people screaming his name. He had everything. Didn’t he?
It’s hard to move on from an addiction, and she was addicted. Drunk on love too early on, she never truly moved on from her first love. She faded in and out of life, trying to ignore her need. But bad habits have a way of coming back when you least expect them too.
For years they went separate ways, until her Superman falls from the sky.
He was on a helicopter after a big win when the engine cut out. He knows he’s not making it out alive. Even with the screams of his teammates shouting in the background as they crash toward earth, all he can think of is her. He’ll never get to see her again…
Love is unforgiving dragging her back to heartache. She only wants to help him get better from the accident and move on with her life. She never planned on falling back in love with him. She never planned on falling so hard a second time.
Lovesick and broken, they crash right back into each other.
