Crush by Celia Loren ~ FMR REVIEW


God’s cruelest joke has to be the Kelly brothers…two sexy identical twin brothers…both bad boys in their own way... 

Chase and Brendan Kelly were my best friends growing up, back when things were easy—before our families fell apart, before we were either geeks or jocks, popular or unpopular...before I grew boobs. 

Things got awkward, the lines between friendship and sexual attraction started to blur and I couldn’t deny my feelings for both of them… 

Chase Kelly was the star athlete, captain of the football and lacrosse teams, womanizer and heartbreaker with a body that isn’t fair. 

Brendan Kelly was the brooding musician, a tattooed rebel with longer hair and eyes as deep as the ocean. 

When I went away to college I left the Kelly brothers behind and swore to move on with my life. But after experiencing heart-rending sexual violence while at school I had no choice but to move back home to San Diego to try to rebuild my life. 

I never thought seeing them again would be so hard…we’d all moved on…we're supposed to be adults now…but spending time with the Kelly brothers has made two things painfully clear... 

First: I never got over them. 

Second: Someone’s heart is going to get crushed. Probably mine. 

CRUSH is full-length Contemporary Romance / New Adult Romance Novel. Stand-Alone, No Cliffhanger. Contains adult content, strong language, violence, and themes that may be offensive to some readers.


Review by: DONNA 

 I liked the story.  I thought it was a sweet story between young adults that have known each other for a life time.  A love triangle that includes two men that are similar as they are different.  Avery is the third element in the mix.  All I can say is drama, drama, drama. 

Review by: ERIN

This story seemed to go very quickly. Avery has had something awful happen to her and is moving back home. She has been friends with Chase and Brendan Kelly since childhood, but she doesn’t look them up when she returns home. She does however run in to them on campus. She has had a crush on Chase forever. But she is closer to Brendan. 
Avery stays confused for a little while on what is happening between her and the brothers. She thinks she wants to be with Chase but she is drawn to Brendan. She is having a hard time making up her mind, but she is keeping secrets from both of them. She comes across as a person who doesn’t want to be alone. She has to learn more about herself and what she wants for her life. That is the only way she is going to be able to choose between the brothers.
