Peek Inside Crashed

Years ago, Deacon West took the virginity of fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco and broke her heart—or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. Now she wants nothing to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he's become. But Deacon knows Alex belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?

She swore never to trust him again…

Fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco should have known better. Years ago, her best friends’ older brother took her virginity and broke her heart—or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. And Alex definitely should not have indulged in another hot night with him after the fact. He’s not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn’t want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he’s become.

Walking away from Alex was the biggest mistake of Deacon West’s life. She belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. If she’ll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair, he won’t sell the building Alex and his sisters use for their auto repair business. Hell, he’ll even sign it over to them. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?


"Seriously hot and steamy relationship between Deacon and Alex. I love it when two people who have been pining for each other get a second chance to make things right. Don't miss out on this page-turning read!" - Tammy, Goodreads

"This book is an emotional roller-coaster. Hot and steamy one minute, sweet and adorable the next and then all of a sudden, explosive. With Alex and Deacon it's all about fireworks, be it between the sheets or otherwise. Both passionate about each other but so wary it's heartbreaking." - Ash P Reads, Goodreads

"I spent my whole afternoon reading this book because I could not put it down! This book is a wonderful contemporary romance and I look forward to seeing the Axle Ally Viper series continue, perhaps with Deacon's sisters Rusty and Piper? If you want to catch this beautiful, funny sexy book be sure to order it." - Vavzviewz blog "This book was sultry, funny, hot, sweet, sexy, and emotional. I think you can see a trend here. This author knows how to write some steamy bedroom scenes!! I didn't want to put this book down and had to recommend it even before finishing it. It was THAT good!" - Amy, Goodreads

"I think any story that shows the main characters individuality and they don't apologize for who they are sends a great message." - Cocktails and Books

"I laughed, I blushed, I smiled, and I felt like I needed to avert my eyes from the sexiness radiating from my Kindle a time or two. All in all, Crashed is a great and fresh new read and one that I definitely recommend." - Jessica Adkins-Charles, Bottles & Books Reviews

Woooweee this book made me happy. How often is it that you read about not only one, but -three- really strong women? Well, if you like books like that, where a woman has herself together and knows what she wants (mostly), this book is for you. Crashed is the first book in the new Axle Alley Vipe ...more

I went into this book expecting to hate our hero, Deacon. Instead, I ended up loving everything about him: His cold exterior, his heart that beats for the heroine so much, I even loved the lengths he was willing to go to get the woman he had been craving for so long in his life. He was hard core alp ...more

A super-sexy, dirty-talking Alpha guy and a kick-ass heroine who works on restoring classic cars. What’s not to love? NOTHING. I loved this book, and it hooked me in from the very first page. The author did a great job of firing up the sexual tension between the hero/heroine. So what if Deacon was a ...more

Loved it, Deacon did some shitty things of course there were reasons why. His jealousy streak made him do even shittier things which he had to grovel for forgiveness. His strategy for getting the girl almost didn't work. Great couple, loved him and Alex together ...more

3.5-4 stars.

Oh, man. I wanted to punch Deacon so hard at the beginning of this book, lol. He was such a jerk, I couldn’t even deal. But then, we got to see things in his POV, and oh boy, were things different from what I thought.

As the story progressed, we learned a lot of Deacon’s secrets, things h ...more

Deacon sure knows how to shock Alex, “yes, but you didn’t let me finish.” He stayed behind his desk, watching her carefully. “I’m a man, Alex. I have needs like any other. I don’t have time for relationships. I don’t want a serious commitment, and one-night stands aren’t really my thing.” Deacon he ...more

4.5 Stars

An absolutely addictive read! The sexy time was off the charts and the author can build sexual tension like nobody's business. Deacon was a total possessive male who made some stupid mistakes when handling and trying to prove his love for Alex. But he definitely makes up for it in the end. ...more
