Synopsis from Goodreads
Kitty was not only beautiful but also incredibly intelligent—except when it came to relationships. It seemed if a guy was a loser, corrupt, deadbeat or unavailable, she was completely and utterly attracted to him. She definitely had a “type,” and all of them had been one bad decision after another.
Dallas had trouble of his own. Finding women wasn’t a problem—he could charm the pants off almost anyone—but most of those “pantless” women ended up being a few bananas short of a fruit basket. Not always the best candidates for his sex-without-strings philosophy. He was one date away from ending up a 60 Minutes special.
While both of them were at the top of their game professionally—she a high-powered executive assistant, and he one of the best tattooists in the city—their personal lives had become a dumpster fire.
No one in their right mind would have suggested they join forces to help each other wade through the crazy. Surely that was a recipe for disaster? But without reason, logic or even sanity on their side, they decided to do it anyway.
It was a hot mess primed for a head-on collision.
Car Crash is a witty exploration of modern dating with a sneak peek behind enemy lines if you will 😉 Kitty and Dallas are strong, independent characters in their own right, both own their sexuality, claiming their pleasure without guilt or remorse. However, the fundamental difference between Kitty and Dallas is the desire for commitment. Dallas is intent on maintaining his happy-go-lucky bachelordom whereas Kitty wants the romance to go along with the sizzle.
The thing is Kitty and Dallas are less than adept at understanding the opposite sex, leading to poor choices when it comes to picking partners. Even though they have had their own tumble together, they have been able to remain friends due to the openness they have in their communication with each other. See what I said there, an openness of communication, which is the essential ingredient of any good relationship. This openness leads Kitty and Dallas to become the voice of insight into the minds of the opposite sex when the other person is torn with their own judgement. Can anyone say ‘recipe for disaster’, LOL
Although I loved the interactions between Kitty and Dallas with the added tension a constant presence between the pair, I can’t honestly say I was invested in them personally. For me they just weren’t the type of person I felt endeared to. Although I can honestly say this did not overly impact my enjoyment of the story only my investment in the outcome between the couple.
