Title: Crashed: Casper’s Ghost
Series: Crown and Anchor Series #1
Author: Kerri Ann
Genre: Dark Romance
All it takes is one wrong choice to change the course of your life forever. It was all planned out; I was going to be someone special. That was me in a nutshell. But, when everything has been in your grasp, how do you live when it all slips away?
My life has been a series of bad memories, bad moves, wrong turns and pain. Lots of pain. Then I met him. I thought that pain would be a thing of the past; I guess not. I thought I was living, but I soon found out I was simply surviving until I met him.
After years of watching from afar, I realized that there is so much more to him. Wyatt Crown is beautiful to watch, lovely to imagine and a dream come true in the flesh. Every woman knows that. Did they know there are darker, more devilish pieces to his soul?
There’s things he can’t show the outside world that is not part of decent society, but, it’s a need he can’t deny.
I’m wealthy beyond what I’ll be able to spend, I have a family that cares, I have everything I could ever ask for -- yet, I’m alone. There’s a hole in me that can’t be filled. There’s a darkness that can only be fed by depravity. Disguised as loved, it’s my bedfellow of choice.
I’m from a family of daredevils. We call ourselves race junkies. I need the roar of the crowd, the rush of pushing limits and most of all -- success. My father is, my sister is and my brother too. We race to win. Nothing less is accepted. If I can’t win, there’s no living with me.
This isn’t your sweet, he said/she said, they found true love. This is dirty, dark, twisted and full of partial hope. Don’t expect a happy ending, but if you get it; you can thank me later.
I have to say this is actually the first time I have read from author Kerri Ann. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the synopsis of this book is what me to wanting to read it. It sounded intense, intriguing, and different from what I'm used to reading.
This book was definitely from what I usually read. And although it is marked as a dark romance, I have definitely read darker and dirtier. Though don't get me wrong there are dark elements in this book.
I really liked Wyatt, aka Casper, and Circe's characters they were both strong and dealing with their own demons. I don't want to give anything away, but I definitely felt for Wyatt in this book. Also Circe is very kind of mysterious, you know something has happened in her past, but you really don't get idea of what it is until the very end.
I thought that this book was very enjoyable and definitely had gripping moments. It definitely had me keep turning the pages and wanting to know more. I have to say I couldn't stand Casper's mom through most of this book and didn't really understand her and her kids dynamics through most of the book, until it was explained towards the end. WARNING: this book does end in a cliffy. So if you're not a fan of cliffies you may want to hold off on reading this until the next one comes out.
I'm giving this book 4.5 Stars out of 5 and can't wait for the next one!!!!
