Genre: Contemporary Gay Romance
Sean, a single California Interior designer sets his sights on going home after a short business trip on the island of Kauai. On his way back to the States, Sean’s world literally spirals out of control when the flight he’s on takes a course he hadn’t expected and into the masculine arms of Kale, a drop dead handsome pilot with attitude, spontaneous charm, and a hint of recklessness.
While stuck on a deserted island off the coast of Maui, they discover there are situations worse than the one they’re in. Initially all they have in common are their aversions for each other and their eagerness to survive. When they realize all they have is each other, Sean and Kale set their differences aside, learn to cope with their seemingly tragic situation and find common ground. After a string of mishaps and clashing personalities, their time together proves far from foolproof when they surprisingly get swept into a whirlwind romance.
The early stages of their engagement involve increasingly desperate measures to conceal their growing affection for each other and by the time Kale confesses his desires, Sean is obsessed. With hormones on both sides roiling and reality setting in, their need to explore each other grows.
Can Kale hide his interest in the man he finds ideal until Sean is ready? Or will Sean’s hysterical dramatic disposition send him packing? Crashing into Love is a romantic comedy about a quirky courtship, clashing personalities, love, and a developing relationship that turns profound – but not necessarily in that order!
Kale and Sean are pitch-perfect in this comical romance of unintentional companionship.
Crashing Into Love is a sweet, touching, raunchy and at times, laugh out loud, novella. Gregory Jonathan Scott has imagined two characters who are polar opposites; Kale with his dry sarcasm and Sean with his diva-like tendencies. These two are placed in a dramatic if unlikely situation, but the author’s attention to detail maroons us on the island with the two men,
” They wandered through dry bush and weeds for what seemed like more than an hour, finding no life of any kind; not even a mouse or a bird. They came to an area populated with a few small trees. They were dry and most stood only knee high.”
Although Crashing Into Love is only a novella, the events of which taking place within a matter of days, Gregory Jonathan Scott’s style of writing means that we understand the intensity of everything which occurs. The thoughts of Kale and Sean blend together, meaning we envision their intentions and despite Sean’s insistence that he has ‘morals’, we cannot wait for the pair to get together.
In the midst of Kale and Sean’s passionate love-making Gregory Jonathan Scott does not attempt to censor the words spoken between them. These are two characters who know what they want and aren’t afraid to vocalise it!
Crashing Into Love is a satisfying romantic comedy with two entertaining characters and I guarantee that any M/M reader will not be disappointed!
Making every attempt not to disturb Sean, Kale quietly slithered into the ditch, taking the same spot behind him where he was before venturing out to pee. Moving slowly, he laid back with his shoulder lightly pressing against Sean’s shoulder blades, just so he could feel he was there. The touch comforted him, felt nice to have another man lying next to him again, to feel the warmth of another body, making him feel less alone. Finally Kale’s breathing went shallow and he started to drift off.
As Sean lay quietly awake, he could tell Kale was getting sleepy, legitimately sleepy. His difficult day of being a superhero had caught up to him. A few minutes later a faint, wheezing snore came out of Kale and he knew for sure the man behind him was out cold. Halfway into the night, Sean was chilled, couldn’t get warm no matter what he tried to do. He tossed, turned, rolled over and pulled his knees to his chest that put his body into a tight ball.
Kale felt Sean’s restlessness as well as a cool sensation emanating from his flesh. He told Sean earlier he’d do what it took to help his distraught passenger survive, and if he needed to lie on top of him like a warming blanket, he’d do it. Kale was a hero like that, a good guy. He’d do just about anything to save a life. Kale rolled over, pressed his warm chest against Sean’s back, wrapped his arms tightly around him and hoped he’d stay there in his arms. He sighed. Damn, Sean felt good in his arms.
There were a few shudders from Sean, chilled ones, before he settled down and started warming up again. Kale’s cozy hug from behind felt comforting to Sean, a feeling he’d been missing and wanted to always come home to.
