Crash and Burn by Michele Callahan ♥ Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Romance)



A childhood promise has Chance Walker picking up a guitar once again. Sure, he's been busy growing up, finishing college, and even law school. He made a promise to his dying mother and he’s determined to keep it. While his guitar playing dreams were big when he was a kid, his skill is rusty and he hires Erin Michaelson to bring music back into his life. Not only is she incredibly talented, she's one of the sexiest women he’s ever met. It's hard to focus on correct finger position when her sweet scent threatens to drive him out of his mind.

Less than twenty-four hours after his first lesson he sees her again, but this time she’s on stage using another name and seducing an entire audience of men. He played the gentleman card once, and it got him nowhere. This time, all bets are off and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her. A single, sizzling backstage kiss will change both of their lives forever, because Chance soon realizes that Erin is not just an itch, she’s an obsession that he refuses to live without.

Erin Michaelson spends her days teaching guitar and her nights on stage as her sexy alter-ego, Eva James. Music is her dream, her passion. All she wants is to say goodbye to a lifetime of scraping by, working two jobs, and paying for past mistakes. When a major record label exec hears her band play, she gets her big break. But life can be a real bitch, and meeting Chance now is just bad timing.

Problem #1: The record label wants her to dump her band and move to L.A. Problem #2: She hadn’t counted on Chance Walker and the scorching heat of that first kiss. And last but not least is Problem #3: Is Chance really falling in love with the dull guitar teacher, or is he really just lusting after the sexy Eva James?

Will success make all of Erin's dreams come true? Or will falling in love make them both crash and burn?



Sweet & VERY SPICY!!!

This book was fantastic! The plot was unique and engaging, and holy smokes, Michele wrote some SMOKING HOT love scenes!

This was one of those stories where it felt like the characters truly loved each other. The emotions were written so well that I could feel exactly what Michele had intended for me to feel.

Erin was fun to read because she was so vulnerable. She had self-doubt and humility, and she had a realistic view of what was going on around her and with Chance.

Chance was absolutely adorable. He knew he wanted Erin and immediately stepped into the role of being her man. He protected her when she needed it and fought for her to prove how he felt. Sigh!

I was also introduced to Chance's brothers. Michele did an excellent job of giving me a summary of each of them, and, needless to say, I will be reading each and every one of their stories (starting with Jake's story, which is the next book in the series!)

All in all, this was a very clever, very enveloping rock star romance and I am now a BIG big fan of Michele Callahan!!!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***



“I really want to kiss you, right now.”

“Then kiss me.” She stood up, right there next to his chair and waited.

He’d blurted out the thought because he wanted her to know how much he wanted her. But he’d never expected this. She was calling his bluff, daring him to stand up and make a spectacle of himself in the middle of a crowded restaurant.

He’d been on dozens of dates the last few years, and not one of them challenged him like she did.

Not one of those women had made him feel this alive.

He took his time, suddenly wanting every pair of eyes in the place glued to them to witness this kiss. He was staking his claim, right here, right now, and he wanted everyone to know she was his.

     



M.L. (Michele) Callahan is a sci-fi fanatic and full time writer whose earliest movie memories are of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and light sabers. (Still waiting on Santa to come through on that one.) ML writes sci-fi action adventure as ML Callahan, and romance as Michele Callahan. Fans of Hugh Howey's Wool series, Wayward Pines, Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark, Sherrilyn Kenyon's League Series, or Karen Marie Moning's Fever Series will not be able to resist Callahan's complex world building, twisting plot lines, or unique premise. Callahan writes something brand new in the science fiction arena with character driven stories that read more like adventure books than hard science manuals. The Timewalker Chronicles are like nothing you've ever read before.

    1. Digital first. If I love it, I buy it in print, too. Maybe that's weird, but that's me. If I love a book, it MUST go on the keeper shelf. :)

    1. Hi Barb. Actually, no. When I was 9, I wanted to be the President. Haha! Thank goodness I grew out of that one. When I went to college, I was a computer science major (for ONE semester - during which I actually took my first programming class and thought I was going to die). I've always loved books, and telling stories. For years writing was my "hobby". Now it's my life, and I love it. Thanks for such a great question and I hope you like the book!

    1. Hi Caitlin. I had SO much fun writing her. I got to close my eyes and imagine what outrageous things she would say or do on stage. It was a blast. I was tired of reading books where boys got to have all the fun. In Jake's book (Book 2 - out this Thursday) the heroine is just as busy and out in the world. I think women should explore the world and make it their own. Boys shouldn't have ALL the fun, right? Hope you like the story. Happy reading!
