Lauren Layne’s latest novel about the healing power of redemption tells the story of a crush gone wickedly wrong, proving that what you want isn’t always what you need.
Growing up in New York, Michael St. Claire never expected to spend his twenties wearing cowboy boots. But that was before he learned about his real father, a total stranger with a family in Cedar Grove, Texas. Once in the Lone Star State, Michael meets Kristin Bellamy, who is exquisitely refined and everything Michael always thought he wanted in a woman. The only problem is that Kristin is dating Michael’s new half-brother, Devon.
Kristin’s mouthy, curvy sister Chloe has always been in love with Devon Patterson. So when Michael offers to help Chloe break up Devon and Kristin, Chloe agrees to a deal that seems too good to be true. Before long, Chloe finally gets her man, only to make a startling discovery: She no longer wants the guy she had to fight for—she wants the one who stood by her side.
After all he and Chloe have been through, Michael swears he’s damaged goods. Can Chloe convince him that love is worth the risk?
Lauren Layne has done it again! "Crushed" is amazing! Chloe and Michael sizzle throughout! It's so much fun to watch Mr. Playboy fall for the other sister - the one society deems not "perfect". There is laughter and humor throughout and I was smiling and chuckling and didn't want to put it down. I was sad when I turned the last page. Chloe is perfect - she's funny and full of life, yet really just wants to be loved. Michael is a typical good looking playboy, yet he has such a vulnerability about him that I couldn't help but fall in love with him too! If you're looking for a fun, light read that will make you feel good, pick this one up. Ms. Layne has rapidly moved up on my favorite authors list and "Crushed" has secured her spot. Her writing style flows and is clear and precise. I look forward to reading this one again and enjoying future works by Ms. Layne. (received copy for honest review)
