Release Blitz - Crash Into Us by Shana Vanterpool

Title: Crash Into Us
Author: Shana Vanterpool
Genre: Contemporary/2nd Chance Romance
Release Date: December 18, 2017
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.

OMG! I ate this story up. I already knew from the blurb that Crash Into Us would be right up my alley and it was. Shana Vanterpool delivers a powerful, emotional and romantic story about love and getting a second chance.

Jasmeen and Gavin have known each other since they were ten and divorces at twenty two. Those twelve years are filled with a lot of firsts for both of them but most of all a love that’s indestructible. A love that’s all consuming.

Now at twenty six they’ve been without contact for four years since their painful breakup and divorce. A helicopter crash changes all that when Gavin is the only survivor and only want Jasmeen by his side for his recovery.
Their road back to one another was intense and filled with so many emotions. Just that scene in the hospital when Jasmeen and Gavin see each other for the first time in four years. My heart ached and broke. My eyes teared up. So powerful.
I loved the flashbacks to their youth cause that really showed why they’re so addicted to one another. Why they’re so tethered. Also my connection to them only intensified. Their chemistry is off the charts hot. Crazy as hell hot!
Their love is incredible. Their friendship is beautiful. Gavin was going through so much pain and suffering from nightmares but throughout it all Jasmeen was a rock. His rock. It was so difficult to read at times because the author captured it perfection. Gavin’s guilt of being the only survivor and him choosing between Jasmeen or hockey.

Crash Into Us is about second chances. Jasmeen and Gavin are without a doubt soulmates. With that comes hurt, disappointment but most importantly love. Their love can’t be described. It has to be experienced.

This is only my second book that I’ve read from Shana Vanterpool. The first being Mad Love which brought my attention to the author. Now I can honestly say that I’m going full stalker mode. Her writing is flawless and her storytelling resonates with me. Her prose evoke so much emotion within me. Vanterpool has cemented herself as on author I need in my life.
I’m so happy Crash Into Us crashed into my life. Definitely going on my favorite list this year.
