I love, love, loved this book. It's like Nora Roberts meets the film Point Break. Surfing hero - rich surfing hero of course! - /fbi heroine who suspects him of murder. Great plot, lots of sex and sexual tension mixed with a wonderful setting. Will certainly look for more by this author.

Great Romantic Suspense 3 Feb. 2009
By Book Fan 1 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sonny Vasquez is a troubled woman and an excellent FBI agent. While her skills as an agent are top notch, a troubled past prevent her from being able to have a trusting romantic relationship. Ben Fortune is a widowed dad with a beautiful, very troubled 16 year old daughter. Ben's wife was murdered a few years ago, and he was the prime suspect, until a drifter confessed. The drifter commits suicide and claims he lied about the killing. There are other young women who have been killed by what appears to be the same killer. Sonny is sent undercover to watch Ben. When Sonny saves Ben's daughter from drowning, and quickly becomes entangled in their lives. Ben is nothing like she expected and finds herself unable to remain professionally detached. Ben has never recovered from loosing his wife, and is surprised at his attraction to his new neighbor.

Jill Sorenson has done a great job in creating real characters with flaws, and strength. Ben's love for his daughter regrets for his past mistakes are evident. There is a great plot line with Carly and her new boyfriend James and his connection to Sonny. I loved this story and the characters. Even though I guessed who the killer was early, the suspense of how this killer would get caught, and how the lives of the rest of the characters would end up remained until the end. I am looking forward to more of Jill Sorenson's books in the future!

An absolute keeper 6 April 2011
By SusiSunshine - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Carolyn Crane told me how much she adored Jill Sorenson novels and even compared her to Megan Hart, I couldn't hold myself back and bought 2 of her backlist titles. I started Crash Into Me and I read this 400+ pages novel in under 24 hours. It just took me so long because of the evil job and OMG I'm in love.

Crash Into Me is such an emotional and suspenseful novel that I fond myself at a loss for words. Some books are just that good that you have to tell everyone about them and I think this is one of those for me. I didn't plan to review it but I can't seem to concentrate on anything else so I just have to get it out of my system. What made this book so special to me?

1. The whole structure of this suspense novel is rather unique and highly intriguing. It's not the usual one romance per novel- we actually have 2 love-stories in this one. I loved how the focus varied but never highlighted one plot line too much. The balance between all the stories and subplots was perfect. Never did I have the urge to skip some pages to get to the "good" part. Everything just fit together.

2. The characterization in this book was also perfect. I love when an author gives us such an insight into their characters but doesn't make it too subtle. I hate when we are thrown from one internal discussion into the next. It has to fit the story and shouldn't feel forced. Sorenson did just that and so much more. I can't remember many books where I felt such a deep connection to the characters. They were shown in so much detail they actually jumped off the pages for me.

3. The story itself was really sad but all the rather "heavier" topics were handled with so much love and care that you just couldn't look away. This book forces you to keep reading even when you think that you would prefer not to read about this. My heart still hurts when I think about parts of this story. But on the other hand we have those moments full of love which balance out the sad parts.

4. In addition to #1 I have to admit something. I know I'm one of those big YA deniers who just out of protest don't read this genre and here I caught myself adoring a YA plot. It just totally blew me away but I'm also sure I wouldn't have liked it if it would have only been YA. I think the mix totally does it for me.

5. I'm not a huge suspense fan but Crash Into Me kept me on the edge of my seat and I may have mentioned this before, I couldn't put it down. The plot was never too prominent or pushed the romance into the background but it was always there, reminding you that something horrible happened and you could already feel the doom approaching. And yep I didn't see the end coming.

As you can see I loved this book- it had everything I love about books and so much more. I had high expectations and this book didn't disappoint at all- it exceeded everything I could have imagined before I started it. LOVED it! If you haven't read this author I urge you to give her a try-I was blown away and I hope you will be too. And yes, I already started my next Jill Sorenson novel. *g*

Good story with major emotional baggage 14 Feb. 2011
By Splage - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was recommended to me through an Amazon Discussion for Favorite Romantic Suspense. I hadn't read anything by this author, the sub-genre was new to me so I thought I would take a chance. I thought the author really enticed you into the story making it very interesting with lots of action, many subplots and it was never slow. It is what I would call a grown up story not sweet and funny, but serious and at times intense.

I love athletes! Their bodies are always hot, their sexy and they know how to do IT!, probably because they have done it so many times with women always throwing themselves at them. The hero Ben is a professional surfer (first time I read about a surfer) who's wife was murdered, he was the prime suspect and he becomes somewhat of a recluse. Everybody, from top to bottom, has a lot of emotional baggage in this book. He has a crazy, beautiful, teenage daughter with bad friends and does bad things to herself. There is a couple of brothers, one is Ben's daughter's love interest, that have had major events in their young lives to mess them up real good. I do love the daughter's boyfriend, James, though, he tries so hard to be good. The heroine, Sonny, is hard, unemotional character that has major problems with intimacy and she is undercover investigating Ben as a serial killer.

The story does keep you guessing, although the villain became predictable by process of elimination. I gave this book 4 stars mainly because it was hard to put down and the love story between the daughter and James. It was the first time I read a book with a lot of detail sexual encounters of teenagers- it didn't seem like they were 16 and 18 (I wasn't put out by it). I never did feel a strong love connection between the main characters, lust definitely. It was a more desperate relationship, the sex was always hard, never loving. There was one thing that did really bug me, it was a situation (nothing major) that was never resolved between the brothers and the heroine, it could have made the HEA a little sweeter. I don't want to spoil it by giving too much detail.

A Lot Going On... 24 Feb. 2009
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sonora "Sonny" Vasquez is a tough as nails FBI agent working the VICAP division. Her latest assignment is taking her back home to San Diego where she is supposed to get close to surfing phenom Ben Fortune. His wife had been murdered and now the man who claimed to have killed her has recanted his statement. And there is a new serial killer operating in the San Diego and the killer's signature resembles Olivia Fortunes murder. Is it possible that Surfing's golden boy is the SoCal strangler? And what will Sonny do when her emotions, against all reason become involved? She's falling in love with Ben and he is all wrong for her on so many level's the least of which is the fact that Ben is a suspect in his wife's' murder. What is Sonny going to do and will she be able to clear Ben's name or has she fallen in love with a serial killer?

Sonny is an interesting character as far as the baggage she brings along emotionally and mentally. This was a fast read although there were some elements that I didn't think the author exploited to their full potential. There are a plethora of characters in this story as well as varying storylines. Ben's daughter and her relationship with a new boy, Ben's angst regarding his past and of course Sonny's past. The romance between Ben and Sonny really seems to take a back seat to other elements of the story. Ben's daughter Carly and her romance with James took up a great deal of the story and frankly this detracted from the suspense storyline and the growth between Sonny and Ben. And yet there was something entertaining about the book. There are some heavy issues that are introduced including, rape, drug use, cutting and homosexuality. The author deals with all of these elements with confidence and respect. This is a worthwhile read offering a little bit of everything, sure to entertain readers.

Romance, Murder, Mystery - Couldn't put it down 25 Jan. 2010
By A Book a Day - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book engages you from the very beginning, is well written, and extremely fast paced. It has the right combination of drama, mystery, murder, romance and a great set of secondary characters that keep you as entertained as the leads. There's actually so much going on and it's interesting how the characters are ultimately interwined.

Special agent Sonny Vasquez is sent to Southern California to investigate a series of possibly connected murders and her person of particular interest is famous surfer Ben Fortune. As the latest comes in from the murders, the FBI find some similarities to Ben's own wife's suspicious death and that makes Ben a suspect all over again. As Sonny is staking out on the beach, she sees Ben's teenage daughter, Carly, come out to the beach and walk directly into the surf in a suicide attempt. Sonny springs into action and saves her. When Ben is notified and comes down to thank her, he finds himself instantly attracted to her. He proceeds to put some heavy advances on Sonny in a very short amount of time and it's often comical how Sonny thinks she putting him off which only puts him on more. Tasked with watching Ben, she tries to remain close enough to him without crossing the line and jeopardizing her job, meanwhile her attraction to him grows and she's still tasked with catching a killer.

A string of secondary characters are introduced and, small world that it is, we find that some of these people are related and never knew it. I normally don't care for secondary romance stories and supporting cast, but it works in the book. The relationships, as in most of these novels, is built very quickly, but you don't mind since the're very steamy and satisfying. I can't say the killer is a surprise, but it doesn't detract in any way from the story. In fact the story is classified as a romance and not romantic suspense and I can see why. There isn't any suspence and the fact that there is a killer is purely a catalyst that Sonny finds herself there in the first place. As convoluted as this writeup may seem, it's hard to explain, but I loved it!
