REVIEW ➞ Crush by Kelsie Rae


I signed up to be a surrogate because the dating pool is that shallow. Besides, my uterus might as well get used before it starts to grow cobwebs, right? Go figure that fate would screw with me as soon as I check in at my first doctor’s appointment.

It’s official. I’ve hit a new rock bottom.

Now I’m stuck drooling over my obstetrician, Dr. Benjamin Bennett. The wounded widower knows how to play my heartstrings like a seasoned violinist.

I thought I’d be stuck lusting from afar, but it seems luck is on my side when I find him on a dating app.

Dr. Bennett is looking for a friend with benefits, and I’m more than ready to jump his bones.

What I don’t expect however, is the man beneath the good looks. The longer I’m around him, the more I start to wonder if he’d ever be interested in pursuing something real, or if I’d always be lost in his wife’s shadow.

My heart breaks as I watch this strong man open up to me. Glassy eyes. Broken voice. All of it.


Crush was such a different story from what I usually read; however, I couldn’t help but love Ben and Marcy. These two people are opposite, yet so perfect for each other.

Ben hasn’t been himself for years, he has just been going with the flow, but not truly living. He didn’t feel like he could enjoy life anymore. Marcy is living, she is doing something so selfless. They came into each other’s lives when they least expected it, but found they were just what they needed.

I loved their relationship. I loved the chemistry between them from the start. I loved their texting banter and the uniqueness of their relationship, which is what made this story stand out to me. There are so ups and downs to their relationship, however, it is truly beautiful.

This story is set in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes World, so it was fun to see some old favorites pop up and play a role as secondary characters in this story.  

If you’re looking for a romance that has a little twist to it, then definitely pick up Crush!
