~Review: Crashing Down by Cathryn Fox~

When reckless meets responsible... Straight A student Kathryn Lane is all work and no play. She's determined to keep her scholarship, and that means no distractions...until she takes a summer internship at Stone Cliff Resort and meets bad boy Noah Ryan. She knows she should keep her distance-after all he's not the kind of guy she can bring home to daddy-but his disarming smile and dangerous ways are entirely too tempting. College dropout, Noah Ryan takes one look at Kathryn and instantly knows her type-ambitious, driven and determined, just like he used to be, before the accident that derailed his life and left him an emotional wreck. He vows to avoid her, but when a co-worker backs him into a bet he can't refuse, everything he's been running from is challenged and he's forced to confront his demons. Soon, Kathryn and Noah are lost to everything except each other. As their lives become entwined, their passion is reckless, their heat all-consuming but when hurtful truths spill out, can Noah prove himself worthy of the one girl who can heal his wounded heart, or will the fire they ignited turn to ash when it all comes crashing down?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Crashing Down is Cathryn Fox's newest novel.  It's a summer romance with a heart-felt twist.  The author created an incredible connection between all of the characters as well as the depth and feelings for each personality.  I was deeply submerged in the story from the delicately written script this author constructed.  

Noah Ryan has many demons.  He dropped out of college after a fatal accident that left him questioning himself, his work ethics, and life.  After taking a job at the Stone Cliff Resort in the heart of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, he vowed that he didn't deserve to be happy and simple was better.  Noah was known at the resort as the playboy and no strings attached was his motto.  Until a bright, beautiful red head comes to work at the resort; he vows to stay away from her type, but she awakens emotions in him that he never wanted or thought he deserved.

Kathryn Lane is an overworked college student who is trying to please her father.  Her dad has her future mapped out which includes working along side him in the business world.  Kathryn has always wanted something different, but to please her father she continues down the road of business.  All of that changes when she takes a job at the Stone Cliff Resort for the summer.  She meets the infamous Noah Ryan and her whole world changes.

This beautiful story brought me such a sense of belonging and love.  I felt so deeply involved in the development of the tragedy, as if I was a part of it all.  A superb summer sensation, Cathryn.
