    Crash was the second book in the Wild Sequence series by Harper Dallas.

    We met James “JJ” Schneider in the first book, Ride. He was a professional extreme sports snowboarder. His crew, the False Kings, were world famous for performing and recording dangerous and exciting stunts. He was fun and gorgeous, but we knew he was pining away for his ex-fiancé, Raquel Sfeir, although we didn’t know any details. Ride ended with a serious accident where Raquel showed up at the hospital for JJ.

    Crash was the second book in the Wild Sequence series by Harper Dallas.

    We met James “JJ” Schneider in the first book, Ride. He was a professional extreme sports snowboarder. His crew, the False Kings, were world famous for performing and recording dangerous and exciting stunts. He was fun and gorgeous, but we knew he was pining away for his ex-fiancé, Raquel Sfeir, although we didn’t know any details. Ride ended with a serious accident where Raquel showed up at the hospital for JJ.

    Crash began by the author backing us up a bit to cross over with parts of book one, Ride. I enjoyed the refresher and getting JJ’s perspective for some of the same scenes. Dallas also took the opportunity to catch us up with Raquel, providing details for her life prior to Crash.

    It was well written, emotional and told from both POV’s. It was presented in four parts as seen through the four seasons. And with each part it was a journey into the past mixed with the present in order to face the future.

    I loved JJ and everything about him. For me, his personality was a carry over from the first book, so although it could be read as a stand-alone, I appreciated JJ more having gotten to know him previously. And Dallas provided JJ’s thoughts in detail, which were a combination of a Jekyll and Hyde conflict, but it allowed me to “feel” JJ and his turmoil. No spoilers so no elaboration, but there was a point I was questioning JJ. As for Raquel, she had to grow on me. At first I didn’t understand her coldness but as the story progressed, I began to feel her anguish. The life of an extreme sports professional athlete had risks that were dangerous and real. It was an emotional and realistic journey.

    And through it all, I loved the crew - the strong secondary cast of characters that provided additional depth and dimension to the storyline: Chase/Brooke, Hanne and Hunter. Dallas began to set the stage for the remaining stories. I’m not sure whether we’ll get Hanne or Hunter’s story next, but both had teasers to be just as emotional and spectacular as Ride and Crash. Bring it on!

    *I received an Advanced Copy (ARC) for an honest review. As this ARC was in the final editing process, my review was based solely on the writing style and storyline versus the editing of grammar, structure and punctuation mechanics.

    Aaaahhhh!!!! Its JJ and Raquel's story!! If you follow my reviews, then you know I have been raving about 'Ride' by Harper Dallas ever since I picked up that gem of a book. Even if you are not a fan of sports romances, you will LOVE this series and 'Crash'! Harper Dallas offer

    Aaaahhhh!!!! Its JJ and Raquel's story!! If you follow my reviews, then you know I have been raving about 'Ride' by Harper Dallas ever since I picked up that gem of a book. Even if you are not a fan of sports romances, you will LOVE this series and 'Crash'! Harper Dallas offers a unique insight into the hearts and minds of professional athletes and the people who love them.

    Told over the course of the four seasons, 'Crash' provides background on JJ and Raquel who we first met in 'Ride'. A member of the renowned False Kings extreme snowboarding team and Chase's best friend, JJ doesn't know any other life or any other way to feel truly happy. Until he meets the love of his life, Raquel.

    JJ is struggling to return to the sport that he is so passionate about but knows that his profession may drive away the only woman he has ever loved. Raquel is a former gymnast and works with professional athletes as part of her job - but she just can't accept JJ's dangerous and life-threaening lifestyle. Her heart is breaking for JJ but she just can't bring herself to commit to a life with JJ, knowing that any day he could be killed on the slopes. Will she turn her back on JJ and the true passion they shared together?

    This is a sexy, slow-burn romance filled with real characters who struggle with their choices. The sports scenes feel so real that Harper Dallas must either be a former athlete or work with athletes in some way. The detail is fantastic. While this could be read as a complete standalone, I highly recommend you grab 'Ride' and read these two fantastic romances together. I hope this indie author receives wide acclaim for her writing because she is one of the most talented romance writers around right now! And the Epilogue of 'Crash' was everything I could have hoped for. I am only sorry this book is over! I need more from Harper Dallas!

    3 Stars!

    I’m sad I didn’t love this one as much as the first one. Raquel grated my nerves really bad and she ruined this book for me:(

    Hope we get more of the others and they grab me up like book one did.

    I absolutely loved the first book and while this was gripping with a beautiful, poetic style prose, it was too angsty for my taste.

    If you've read Ride (and I think you need to read that first) you'll know adrenalin junkie JJ is still suffering from the the breakdown of his engagement when he suffers terrible injuries in an accident.

    I absolutely loved the first book and while this was gripping with a beautiful, poetic style prose, it was too angsty for my taste.

    If you've read Ride (and I think you need to read that first) you'll know adrenalin junkie JJ is still suffering from the the breakdown of his engagement when he suffers terrible injuries in an accident.

    It's gut wrenching and poignant and thought provoking but it's also relentlessly miserable through most of the book. As impressive and devastating as it was to read, it did begin to feel a little repetitive after a while and I was hankering for some happy glow times. Unfortunately they were few and far between.

    And it might be me being old, but I struggled to empathise with Raquel 's dilemma; she falls in love with a wild risk taker then wants him to um, not be a risk taker anymore. Really? I spent a good part of this grinding my teeth and wanting to drag her head through the snow or something.

    Anyway, I adored the language and the sense of camaraderie with a team in this, but it was a little too relentlessly angsty for my tastes. If angst is your thing though, you'll be able to wallow in its delicious misery for sure.

    Complete story. I'd recommend reading Ride first. That one was much more my cuppa.

    Available on ku.

    **Thanks to the author for my arc.**

    I loved her first book, why do people give rating if it's not out yet. It makes me feel like author's books are being sabotaged before they even come out. If your going to give a bad rating, let us know why at least.
