Crashed by Danielle A. Elwood

Emily Taylor is a twenty-six year old event planner who has made a career out of dating; with the majority of it ending up as a complete nightmare. She is driven, motivated, and rising to the top in her career…but not in her love life. However, a random car accident will change her life forever.

Avery Martin is a country boy stuck in the city working his dream job of being a fire fighter. Over the years he has given up a lot, including dating, to focus on his career. Responding to a car accident one day he becomes overly involved with the woman he is rescuing.

Will these two find love, or will amnesia cost them the future they might have had?

My Review:

Emily is late for work and gets into a car accident.  She is pulled out of her car by a hot firefighter. He rides in the ambulance with her to the hospital and then goes back later to check on her. Emily has lost part of her memory but she remembers Avery. 

The two get together but have to deal with their past relationships or actually have to deal with their ex's. Can they put the past behind them and move forward?

This was a cute story. There were a couple of twists but unfortunately they were telegraphed so they did not come as a surprise. I enjoyed the book and it was a quick read, I finished it within a day.

When do you find time to write?

Ha! This is one of my favorites. The honest answer is whenever I can. After the kids are in bed is when the bulk of my writing gets done. Lots of late nights. Sometimes an idea will hit me and I lock myself in my bedroom with my laptop, or even the bathroom. (We have all been there as parents, haven’t we?)
Mostly though I try to keep it when my older children are in school, or occupied with something.

Who has inspired you the most?

A lot of people may give me flack for this, but it was E.L. James, and Jamie McGuire. Why? Because they opened the gateway for me. They made me understand you can write and independently publish an awesome book, and be successful without a powerhouse publishing company behind them.

 What do you do in your spare time? Any hobbies or quirks?

Spare time? What is that?!  With three children, most of the spare time I have is spent doing family stuff. But we love the beach. I also am a photography junkie. Some day I will learn more than I know now and be able to take even more amazing pictures with my DSLR which is currently collecting dust. I also enjoy blogging which I do more of the personal stuff on my other site I am also a huge bookworm. I read at least one good romance novel a week.

What kind of music do you like to listen to while you write? 

I typically will turn on a top 40 mix on Spotify. Occasionally I will tune into the Avett Brothers channel since they are a fav of mine and I find most of their lyrics exceptionally inspirational. Overall I just listen to a mix of whatever. But music is a must for writing.

Where does your inspiration come from?

Everywhere!  Television (although you aren’t going to see me taking on any supernatural story lines to go with my True Blood obsession) books, friends, songs, and my own flat out imagination. I think also traveling and moving has given me a lot to work with especially in a new area of the country and a popular city so close to our home now.
