From the very beginning, I suspected I was making a bargain with the devil. I accepted a position as Bryce Gentry’s 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?

Crush Me was a great 5 star read.
We start out with Callie at Bryce’s office trying to get a job as his PA. She needs the job to help keep custody of her son. She is determined to do whatever it takes. Little does she know exactly what that will encompass.
A perfect little slut, just for me to take out when I want to play.
Bryce’s dirty mouth was quite shocking at times to Callie. The way he would talk to her and treat her really ticked me off. Then she meets an old friend turned rival of Bryce’s, Jackson. Jackson want’s Callie for himself.
You’re going to be in my bed, Calliope. On my desk. Against my wall. – Jackson
Not only does she have Bryce and Jackson to deal with she also has to deal with Charlie’s father, David. He is being a huge jerk and has a lawyer with the intentions of trying to take him away from her. He also has a conniving wife that is also trying to help him get custody.
When Callie and Jackson connected it was very hot and steamy, he was not what I expected. He was much nicer to Callie than Bryce was. Can Callie and Jackson make things work? Will Callie be able to keep her son?
Callie was a very strong character, not only did she have to deal with being a single mom but she was also disowned by her parents. Thankfully she had Shannon to help her. Bryce was a monster, that’s all I’m going to say about him, wow. There was a shocking twist that I didn’t expect and I’m still in shock writing this review. I’m interested to see what is next for Callie. Beware that this is a very dark read with some scenes that could be triggers for some. This is my first read from Stasia Black and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be following this author.
