I really enjoyed Crusher, this was my first book by Daryl Banner and I will definitely be looking for more of his work.
I loved Quintin, he was such a genuinely nice guy who felt the loss of his brother and the expectations of his family deeply, add in his belief that maybe he isn’t cut out to be an artist after all and you have a guy who needs a break.
Adrian was also a lovely guy, afraid of love and with a reputation that isn’t completely deserved, he’s starting to take a look at who he is and where he is heading.
I loved the first meeting between Quintin and Adrian and every interaction from then on hooked me in and had me hoping that these two could really make a go of things, if only they could get past all of their own problems.
A book full of heart, I really enjoyed this read.
