This is the story of Sean and Kale. Sean is an uptight city boy on his way home from a business trip to Hawaii that, disappointingly for Sean, had turned out to be all business and no play.
Kale is what I imagine is the island-lifestyle type guy; laid back and sarcastic, but purely loveable. He is the pilot of the airline that Sean is forced to take from Kauai to Maui, where he will catch the jet for home. And this plane is nothing like the private jet that Sean was used to.
Right from the beginning, the antagonistic but completely fun-to-read back and forth of these two disparate characters is a joy. The plane that Sean is boarding is not anything that Sean would NOT make sarcastic, snobby remarks about, and Kale takes it all in good style, with his quick one-line comebacks to Sean’s fears and worries. And to be fair, the plane deserved every one of the remarks as GJS describes it. But Kale has been a pilot for ten years, so slowly relieves Sean of some of his fear.
Turns out, the fears are justified, and the plane does just what Sean expected and feared. And this brings on a whole new set of fears, adventures, and problems that the two must tolerate until they are rescued from the little island that they ended up getting to after the plane goes down. And of course now, Sean is not really disposed to enjoy Kale’s company, or his style of humor.
As the time goes by, and Kale helps Sean get through this ordeal, a friendship and more develops, putting Sean into a quandary of what to do with his life.
Gregory has written another little ditty that is so much fun, easy to read, and action packed and paced. And the relationship between the two characters is so much fun. You can’t help laughing with them as they provoke each other and at the same time help each other get through the ordeal they are enduring.
I love this book, and if I lived near a beach, it would be a perfect beach read. This is one of those books that I will come back to many times when I want to read a quicky.
Sean, a single California Interior designer sets his sights on going home after a short business trip on the island of Kauai. On his way back to the States, Sean’s world literally spirals out of control when the flight he’s on takes a course he hadn’t expected and into the masculine arms of Kale, a drop dead handsome pilot with attitude, spontaneous charm, and a hint of recklessness.
While stuck on a deserted island off the coast of Maui, they discover there are situations worse than the one they’re in. Initially all they have in common are their aversions for each other and their eagerness to survive. When they realize all they have is each other, Sean and Kale set their differences aside, learn to cope with their seemingly tragic situation and find common ground. After a string of mishaps and clashing personalities, their time together proves far from foolproof when they surprisingly get swept into a whirlwind romance.
The early stages of their engagement involve increasingly desperate measures to conceal their growing affection for each other and by the time Kale confesses his desires, Sean is obsessed. With hormones on both sides roiling and reality setting in, their need to explore each other grows.
Can Kale hide his interest in the man he finds ideal until Sean is ready? Or will Sean’s hysterical dramatic disposition send him packing? Crashing into Love is a romantic comedy about a quirky courtship, clashing personalities, love, and a developing relationship that turns profound – but not necessarily in that order!
Kale and Sean are pitch-perfect in this comical romance of unintentional companionship.
Gregory Jonathan Scott was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Shortly out of high school was when he began his longtime relationship with his partner and companion Scott. Having artistic hands, together they pursued building a small business in ceramic art and pottery that quickly grew into the number one distribution center for hobbyists, storefronts and scholastic industries. During that time, Gregory was approached by art magazines to write short articles and educational columns pertaining to the ceramic artistry. After charming readers by his writing style, it ignited his desire to express himself further. From there, it began. Finding a love for writing, alongside his artistic hand, gave him inspiration to design and write M/M romance Novels that captivate and take the reader on unexpected adventures.
Gregory and Scott are still together and are currently enjoying home life in South Florida with their lovable Shetland sheepdog and a sweet stray cat.

Making every attempt not to disturb Sean, Kale quietly slithered into the ditch, taking the same spot behind him where he was before venturing out to pee. Moving slowly, he laid back with his shoulder lightly pressing against Sean’s shoulder blades, just so he could feel he was there. The touch comforted him, felt nice to have another man lying next to him again, to feel the warmth of another body, making him feel less alone. Finally Kale’s breathing went shallow and he started to drift off.
As Sean lay quietly awake, he could tell Kale was getting sleepy, legitimately sleepy. His difficult day of being a superhero had caught up to him. A few minutes later a faint, wheezing snore came out of Kale and he knew for sure the man behind him was out cold.
Halfway into the night, Sean was chilled, couldn’t get warm no matter what he tried to do. He tossed, turned, rolled over and pulled his knees to his chest that put his body into a tight ball.
Kale felt Sean’s restlessness as well as a cool sensation emanating from his flesh. He told Sean earlier he’d do what it took to help his distraught passenger survive, and if he needed to lie on top of him like a warming blanket, he’d do it. Kale was a hero like that, a good guy. He’d do just about anything to save a life. Kale rolled over, pressed his warm chest against Sean’s back, wrapped his arms tightly around him and hoped he’d stay there in his arms. He sighed. Damn, Sean felt good in his arms.
There were a few shudders from Sean, chilled ones, before he settled down and started warming up again. Kale’s cozy hug from behind felt comforting to Sean, a feeling he’d been missing and wanted to always come home to.
