Crush Me by Stasia Black

Title: Crush Me
Series: Crush Me, #1
Author: Stasia Black
Genre: Erotic Romance

From the very beginning, I suspected I was making a bargain with the devil. I accepted Bryce Gentry's position as his personal assistant knowing there was more to the job than answering emails and taking meeting notes. I mean, so what if he likes to watch me do my office work without my shirt on? No big deal. All I care about is making ends meet and taking care of my son. But Gentry seems determined to make me a pawn in his personal vendettas and power plays.
And then there's Gentry's handsome former collaborator and current rival: Jackson Vale. Jackson makes me FEEL. He makes me feel alive. Feel sexy. Feel in control and out of control at the same time. He makes me want a future when I can barely manage the day to day.
For a girl like me, it's dangerous to want. If there's one thing I've learned in this life, it's to never put my heart on the line.
The stakes of these games are getting too high, too fast. It was just supposed to be a job. But now I'm stuck between two men intent on destroying one another. Will I make it out of this with my heart, soul, and body intact, or will this CRUSH ME?
Warning: Contains triggers and dark themes which may be distressing to some readers.
Book 1 of 2 Part Series. Second book releases on March 9th.

Title: Crush Me
Author: Stasia Black


Let me take a moment to breathe before starting my review because Stasia Black has knocked me on my butt in such a way that my head is still spinning. Crush Me is far from being the inter office romance that ends well, and I have a feeling that when Callie first met Bryce, accepting to be his personal assistant, she knew it as well. And when a connection between Jackson and Callie forms, things get more complicated for everyone involved in ways even I couldn't have begun to guess.


Bryce knows how to doll out humiliation and dominance in ways that were close to sadism. Ways that Callie accepts for the sake of her son. Place Jackson in the mix and you have a situation that is so full of tension that you sincerely hope that throughout all the horrible parts, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. It was a thrilling read that has me needing more from Stasia Black and has become one of my surprise new find authors of the year and one that I'll be watching closely from now on.
