Crashing into Love
Genre: M/M, Romance
Sean, a single California Interior designer sets his sights on going home after a short business trip on the island of Kauai. On his way back to the States, Sean’s world literally spirals out of control when the flight he’s on takes a course he hadn’t expected and into the masculine arms of Kale, a drop dead handsome pilot with attitude, spontaneous charm, and a hint of recklessness.
While stuck on a deserted island off the coast of Maui, they discover there are situations worse than the one they’re in. Initially all they have in common are their aversions for each other and their eagerness to survive. When they realize all they have is each other, Sean and Kale set their differences aside, learn to cope with their seemingly tragic situation and find common ground. After a string of mishaps and clashing personalities, their time together proves far from foolproof when they surprisingly get swept into a whirlwind romance.
The early stages of their engagement involve increasingly desperate measures to conceal their growing affection for each other and by the time Kale confesses his desires, Sean is obsessed. With hormones on both sides roiling and reality setting in, their need to explore each other grows.
Can Kale hide his interest in the man he finds ideal until Sean is ready? Or will Sean’s hysterical dramatic disposition send him packing? Crashing into Love is a romantic comedy about a quirky courtship, clashing personalities, love, and a developing relationship that turns profound – but not necessarily in that order!
Kale and Sean are pitch-perfect in this comical romance of unintentional companionship.
Making every attempt not to disturb Sean, Kale quietly slithered into the ditch, taking the same spot behind him where he was before venturing out to pee. Moving slowly, he laid back with his shoulder lightly pressing against Sean’s shoulder blades, just so he could feel he was there. The touch comforted him, felt nice to have another man lying next to him again, to feel the warmth of another body, making him feel less alone. Finally Kale’s breathing went shallow and he started to drift off.
As Sean lay quietly awake, he could tell Kale was getting sleepy, legitimately sleepy. His difficult day of being a superhero had caught up to him. A few minutes later a faint, wheezing snore came out of Kale and he knew for sure the man behind him was out cold.
Halfway into the night, Sean was chilled, couldn’t get warm no matter what he tried to do. He tossed, turned, rolled over and pulled his knees to his chest that put his body into a tight ball.
Kale felt Sean’s restlessness as well as a cool sensation emanating from his flesh. He told Sean earlier he’d do what it took to help his distraught passenger survive, and if he needed to lie on top of him like a warming blanket, he’d do it. Kale was a hero like that, a good guy. He’d do just about anything to save a life. Kale rolled over, pressed his warm chest against Sean’s back, wrapped his arms tightly around him and hoped he’d stay there in his arms. He sighed. Damn, Sean felt good in his arms.
There were a few shudders from Sean, chilled ones, before he settled down and started warming up again. Kale’s cozy hug from behind felt comforting to Sean, a feeling he’d been missing and wanted to always come home to.
My Review: 3.5 Stars
Crashing into Love was fasted paced and showed what two men would do when stranded on an island.
The story was a little confusing. I seriously wanted to know what happened to the plane. One minute they were flying fine, then the next they were jumping out of the plane.
I liked Kale, Sean not so much. Kale tried to think on the bright side, while Sean was Mr. Doom and Gloom. Crashing into Love put all the other insta love books I have read to shame. Which isn’t a bad thing. Hopefully there will be more of Kale and Sean.
