Review : Crash and Burn by Michele Callahan


"ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review. "

This was not my Favorite from Michele Callahan. The story felt very rushed. Although it was funny and I loved the idea of the heroine being the sexy rockstar , I was a little disappointed. The story moved so fast that it gave us no time to get know the characters well or feel their connection. There was nothing that made them stand out and grab our attention. There was more interactions and chemistry between the brothers than our lead characters. It was a sweet story that I felt if slowed down it could have been great.

I did like how Chance was protective , sweet and ready to give it his all.


Erin was strong , yet sweet and I loved her alter ego. She was selfish but I totally understand why.

Every love story should have its own song...

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 struggle 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 ?
