Book Review: Crashing the Net

 


She’s lost her mobility, her career, and her dreams... Can she risk losing her heart to her best friend as well?

Edith:
In the blink of an eye, everything I’ve worked my whole life to achieve is gone, maybe forever. I’m not prepared to accept that I’ll never dance again. It’s all I’ve ever known, and I’m scared to find out who I am without it.
The only person still in my corner is my hockey playing, son-of-a-billionaire best friend, but no amount of money can help me walk again. His intentions are admirable, but I can’t risk falling for him.

What if I lose him, too?

Apollo:
Waking up after a near fatal car crash, I realized I’ve been in love with Edith for as long as I’ve known her.
Nothing matters anymore. Nothing but my beautiful, smart, funny best friend who is convinced we’re doomed to fail.
Money can solve a lot of problems, but not this one.


How can I persuade her to take a chance on me, on us, when she’s lost so much already?


My Review

Talk about an opening scene. I felt all the strong emotions that Apollo was experiencing for Edith while she was lying in a hospital bed. It was here that I was really cheering for him to be endgame with Edith. He did come on hard and fast in the beginning. To the point that Edith thought Apollo might be suffering from PTSB (yes, "b" not "d").

I can guarantee you that everything was in working order downstairs with Apollo. Ooh, those steamy scenes between Edith and Apollo. They could have melted the ice rink. Yet, my favorite moments were the ones where Apollo cared for Edith like shaving her legs as she recuperated. 

I will leave you with a quote from Apollo "I am Clark Kent, and she’s my Kryptonite."
