**REVIEW** Deadly Crush by Ashley Stoyanoff
Dog Mountain is just like any other small town — peaceful and uneventful. Well, that is if peaceful means wolves howling all night, and uneventful means it’s overrun by pesky werewolves, then yes, Dog Mountain is just your average small town.
Jade Shaw has spent the last two years avoiding the pack. But when Aidan Collins moves to town, avoiding the dogs doesn’t seem possible. The pack wants him just as much as she does.
Determined to keep him out of the pack’s grasp, Jade does everything she can to gain his attention. Little does she know, Aidan is in deeper with the pack than she could have imagined, and competing for his attention is a deadly game, one she may not want to win.

Deadly Crush is only the third werewolf book I have read. I just recently started reading them thanks to a friend. The reason I had never read them before is because I was worried I wouldn’t like them. I can love paranormal but there are bound to be some things in this genre that I don’t care for. Yes, I have come across one thing that just wasn’t for me. So, since werewolf was such a big thing in paranormal I was scared to read one and find out that I didn’t like them.
Well, I can say that I am now thankful to my friend for getting me to read one. Now I feel like I am hooked. When I picked up this book I had no clue what it was about. (I suck at reading the synopsis for a book 😀 ) From the moment I started reading Deadly Crush I was hooked.
I started last night and stayed up as late as I could reading every little bit I could. I didn’t want to put it down. I woke this morning ready to read more. I had to read more. I needed to find out what happened. Needed to know how it would all end. (Apparently with a cliffhanger. Lol)
I loved Jade from the start. I loved her spunkiness. I loved her smart mouth and the quick come backs. I have admitted before that I love a female character that are strong and stand up for themselves. I love females that are smart mouth and don’t take crap. This girl was awesome.
Dom I really hated. He drove me nuts and I understood why Jade felt the way she did towards him. He deserved anything that came from her.
Aiden…. Now there was one with a mix of feelings. I loved him, hated him, loved him, and hated him again. Ending with really loving him. He was a new Alpha. One that in my eyes had no idea what the freak he was doing. The way he treated Jade. How things all played out. My heart broke at the end. Seriously broke. 😦
The book was amazing. The story line never had a dull moment. For me nothing was rushed at all and nothing was played out slowly. There was always something happening that kept my heart close to racing as I tried to figure out what happened next. This is a must read. A definite recommendation. A go get it NOW type of book. If you love werewolves and a good story then make sure to grab this one.
