    • This will be a new venture for me. Something a little different than I'm used to writing. It will all be from Jude's POV. I knew months ago that I wanted the next book to be from the guy's POV. I'm already in love with Jude. And Marley will be different as well. It'll be new for me to write two people that loathe each other before they love. But I can't wait!Updates and sneaks on my blog soon! shellycrane


    • Suspenful and full of action, intense and passionate Smash Into You is a definite read in one sitting, biting your nails emotional novel. Smash Into You is the best misunderstading I had with a book in my lifetime. I really thought I would be reading sweet contemporary romance but I got exactly the opposite! And I loved the hell outta it. Smash Into You is not normal heartwarming romance novel, it’s more like mix of action show with sexy times and lots of more! I got absolutely beautiful story [...]


    • I am a super huge fan of Shelly Crane (especially her Significance Series), so when I got the chance to review an ARC of Smash Into You, I jumped on it! This book is definitely a lot different than Crane's other books; it is told exclusively from the male character, Jude's POV. And while a lot of her other books are disgustingly and wonderfully sweet and tend to focus primarily on the emotional relationships between the characters, Smash Into You was surprisingly mysterious and suspenseful. And [...]


    • Another Shelly Crane story that I can toss into the pile of books that I love. Toss? Who am I kidding? I will virtually lay it down tenderly at the top of the pile in hopes it never gets hurt or virtually torn. Guys, this book is definitely different than what we are used to when it comes to Crane’s books. Well sort of. If you have read her STEALING GRACE series, then you know our lady can write the deep and can write the heavy. SMASH INTO YOU starts out like your typical NA read. You know the [...]


    • Okay, so this book started off great. I loved the broody, on the run, HOT SEXY, only one night stand alpha hero and the sweet, care free heroine. These two "smashed" into each other over and over and it was really becoming sweet and fun to read. Then they got caught up in the hero's trouble and had to go on the run and it got suspensefuld sweet stillAND THEN IT GOT WEIRD.Yep, weird. I don't want to spoil anything, but the actuality of this happening (because it's a contemporary romance, not para [...]


    • **ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review**5 AMAZING STARS!!!!Let me start by saying that this book is a MUST READ!!!! I have been a fan of Shelly Crane since I read her Significance Series. I thought I couldn't love one of her heroes more than Caleb, but I was sadly mistakenJude Ezra Jackson stole my heart. This book was so different then her other books, but let me tell you she knocked this out of the park. I loved that this book is from Jude's POV. I am such a sucker fo [...]



    • 4 On the Run StarsOn the run. Always on the run. Never settling down. Never having friends for more than a few months. Starting over again and again. For some high schoolers this might be a good thing. Getting to start over. But for Jude it is his way of life. He has to keep on the run to avoid a death like his mother. At the hands of the same guy who killed his mother. Not as much fun as it sounds.Jude is a cute boy who doesn't have any life long friends. That whole running thing, remember? He [...]


    • Shelly Crane’s newest book, Smash into You, is only a couple hundred pages, but so much happens in such a short time that it felt as if it was three books in one. There are a number of shocking twists and turns, starting out as a seemingly run-of-the-mill romance and transitioning into a suspenseful drama. There is never a dull moment, starting from the moment protagonists Jude and Marley literally smash into each other and on through the chaotic race for their lives. Told entirely through Jud [...]


    • Well that was a lot nothing for even less!Now, I can't possibly mean that, can I? Well, I did try to find a reason to give this book more than one star. I tried really hard, I will tell you. I asked the people who'd been next to me while I read this, I've skipped through chapters to find parts I liked, and I've re-thought most of my opinions in different lights too. Yet, I can't come up with positive things to say about Smash Into You.It took me exactly 112 words into the first chapter to know I [...]


    • Was stuck between rating 3.5 or solid 4, decided to round up (:Well, that was quite a surprise of a read! Going into Smash Into You, I was expecting it to be very similar to other New Adult contemporary novels. While it did have similarities with other NA novels, such as two broken people coming together, and a guy that never settles down finding a girl he falls in love with, that is where the similarities end. Smash Into You was a great contemporary romance, with suspense, action, and thrill, i [...]


    • Jude has been on the run his whole life, but since he was a young teenager he's been running alone from the man who killed his mother. He's living in a college town trying to blend in and avoid any attachments until Marley smashes into his car with hers, and Jude finds that he isn't able to avoid her the way he avoids everyone else. She is the first person to make him wish he didn't have to leave everyone behind for their own good. It isn't long before Biloxi (the man Jude is running from) finds [...]


    • 4.5 stars I am no stranger to Shelly Crane’s writing. I have read many of her books and thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. This one was no different! It is a great mix of a sweet romance, mystery, and humor.Jude and Marley are both struggling. Marley is struggling to make it and Jude is struggling to stay alive. Then, they literally crash into one another. It’s as if they are meant to be together, fate keeps bringing them to one another. Now whether they want to be together is anot [...]


    • Jude has been on the run since he was a child, his mother killed by a man and Jude having no knowledge of why. Jude has to be alone, forming no attachments so he doesn't endanger anyone else. It's lonely, but seems to be working. Then one day he gets into a fender bender with a young woman that he can't seem to get out of his head. Most girls fall over themselves to try to be with the stunningly handsome young man. Marley, the young woman, doesn't seem affected at all by Jude's alluring looks. H [...]


    • A wonderfully written romantic book with some mystery thrown in. Jude has been on the run his whole life trying to flee someone he calls Biloxi (where he first remembers him). Biloxi killed his mother and now has been hunting Jude down for years. Jude doesn't know why he's hunted. He has become a shallow, man-whore while on the run, knowing that he can never have a real relationship because that would endanger whoever he became attached to. Then, he literally smashes into Marley (or she smashes [...]


    • Daggum it. Oh, Shelly Crane, how I love thee. I honestly haven't read a book of hers that I didn't fall in love with. I was seriously hooked on Smash Into You from the first chapter. Jude is a hot mess.but with good reason. He's been on his own since, well, basically since forever. When he smashes into Marley, his life is changed in SO many ways. There is a reason they meet and as you read on, that becomes more and more apparent.The way that Shelly tells this story.e tells a really messed up sto [...]


    • Daggum!!! hahaha!! That was the word i learnt from this book! Ahh this book was good! I wanted to read this book since last year! Since i read the first teaser! I was waiting and I was certainly not disappointed! This book was brilliant!It had romance and it had a good suspense to it! Jude and Marley are just so cute together! Everything that happened in their lives really brought them closer! Jude was a player and he didnt want to have a relationship just meaningless encounters! Then he met Mar [...]


    • 3.5 STARSI really enjoyed the ride that was Smash Into You, but some things bothered me.(view spoiler)[I think I would have much preferred it if Marley was tricking Jude in the beginning (as was implied by a bad guy) only to fall for him after. It would have given the story more of an edge and based it more on the plot instead of the general feelings of the characters.I enjoyed the action, wished that there was more story whilst they were in the facility. Less emphasis on the fact that he was a [...]



    • ***This review may contain spoilers*** Let me start off by saying Thank You Shelly Crane for restoring my faith in books!It has been a while since i have been able to read a book straight through, all the way to the end. I had given up on the notion of ever finding another book i loved and then when i checked her site this one caught my eye.5 Stars!SO GLAD I GAVE IT A TRY! This book is is secretive and tempting. That means that there's a big secret but you don't get to know it until end, and the [...]


    • I was so happy when Shelly Crane selected me as one of the blogs to do a review for Smash Into You. So am honored to do this review. I will be as honest as I can, and try not to do any spoilers.I was attracted to this book first of all because of Shelly Crane, as I am a huge fan of her Significance series. As anyone who has read my reviews, or who follows my blog, knows I am all about the paranormal/sci-fi, really anything outside the “normal” . This book does give just a tad outside the “ [...]


    • 4.5 Stars*ARC provided by Author for Honest Review*Smash Into You was just what I needed to remove me from the book hangover I was having. Everything was too typical and predictable. Gone were the days of picking up a novel and being absolutely shocked, awed, thrilled and chilled. Then I read Smash Into You and all that changed. Smash Into You is a guaranteed thrilling read from start to finish. My mind has officially been blown in the best of ways. I went into this without re-reading the Blurb [...]


    • I’m a fan of Shelly Crane’s Significance series so knowing a new book from her will come out I can’t help me to gush and wait for it!As a self-confessed romantic-at-heart, I’m a firm believer of coincidences, destinies, soul mates and stuffs like that. That is the very thing that makes me love the author’s Significance Series – it’s about destiny and finding your soul mate and this new story from her Smash Into You surprisingly has the same ingredient as those – coincidences and [...]


    • celebrityreaders.wordpress2.5 stars -- *sigh* When I first started reading this and wasn't getting into it, I wondered if I just wasn't in the mood for this type of book (a mystery/suspense/thriller), but unfortunately I think that was only a tiny bit of the reason. In the end the plot and characters just never ended up grabbing hold of me and taking me on a ride. The ride was there, but it felt like it was malfunctioning, so I just never hopped on board.Jude was kind of a jerk, and I just never [...]


    • Absolutely LOOOOOOVED it!!!!OMG!!! Full review.I have to say that Shelly Crane is one of my favorite authors and when she puts out something new, yeah, I have to read it!!So, Smash Into You was starting to be talked about and just the little bit of buzz out there told me that I was going to enjoy this bookd boy did I!!From the very moment you open up to the first page and begin readingyou immediately get captivatedwhy is that you say???Ahhhhis book is told solely from the hero's POVpl through th [...]


    • ** I was given this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review**I love Shelly Crane. I love the books that she writes, so when I got the opportunity to read Smash into You, I jumped on the chance!! I was so great!! The storyline was new and fresh. The characters were engaging, and the ending was wonderful! I read the book in one sitting and will probably read it again. Jude Jackson is an enigma. He seems like a rough riding, tough guy who just uses women and discards them when he is do [...]


    • 3.5 starsI will tell you up front I am not big into supernatural books. That being said I read one of Shelly Crane's books - Significance a few weeks ago because it was free. That books opened up a whole can of worms for me. Not only did I read the first book. I read the entire 4 book series in a week. I could not put them down!! I guess I DO like supernatural books after all.Smash Into You is a story about Jude and how he is constantly on the run. Jude is not even sure who or what he is running [...]


    • Okay, Okay, I know what you’re thinking…THIS BOOK ISN’T EVEN OUT YET!!!I KNOW RIGHT!!! But because Shelly Crane is so SUPER AWESOME she alloweda few blog sites to read an ARC of her FABULOUS AND TOTALLY AMAZING NEW BOOK!As soon as I realized Shelly Crane had a new book coming out I was seriously jumping up and down.I haven’t read a book yet of hers that I didn’t LOVE. And Smash Into You was no exception. Thisbook oozes awesomeness.First I have to say, that I love that the book was writ [...]


    • I really wanted to like this book. I liked Shelly Crane' s Wide Awake series. The stories behind each of those books were touching, I cared about the characters and the complications, climax and conclusion of each were interesting and satisfying. I can't say the same for Smash Into You. As much as I wanted to like it, I just couldn't. To explain why without giving away hints about the progress of the story would be impossible (for me anyway) so be forewarned: there will be potential spoilers.Jud [...]


    • Yes, this book is a contemp romance, but it is also much, much more. It completely surprised me as turning out to be a mystery. The book starts out with Jude, who is running for his life. I had no clue why he was running, but that’s perfect, because he doesn’t know why he’s running either. For as long as he can remember, he has been chased by a man known only as Biloxi.Right off, Marley crashes into the scene. Literally. She crashes her car into Jude’s. And now, try as he might, he can [...]
