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.


“Now THIS… THIS is how I like my dark reads. Fast paced, twisted plot, alpha males…” ~AfterthePages

“Crush Me was a wild ride! One I didn’t see coming. Hot, Raunchy, and down right dirty to the core.” ~Julie at The Romance Rebels



When I began Crush Me by Stasia Black, I found myself not liking one of the main characters. Bryce Gentry, the owner and head of Gentry Information Technologies, is crass, manipulative, sadistic, sexiest, and I could probably keep going.  Calliope (Callie) Cruise is a single mother and struggling with her current situation.  In her attempt to solve some of her problems, she begins working as Mr. Gentry’s personal assistant.  It becomes evident from the very beginning that this is not the best working situation, but the salary is more important.  Mr. Gentry introduces Callie to Jackson Vale, a current business rival, with a business proposal.  He suggests Callie help persuade Mr. Vale to agree to the proposal.

Crush Me is an amazing book and I felt so emotional during the whole story!  It does contain trigger warnings as well as dark topics, so be advised. The characters are well developed and the story line was very emotional.

A definite One-Click!!

One of my favorites for 2017!

Stasia Black is an author who’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath the people’s veneer and into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. She likes to toss her characters into the tempest and watch them hurt, fight, bleed, and then find out what, if anything, comes out the other side. Come along for the journey because it’s one helluva ride.
