Crash (Crash #1) by Nicole Williams

Crash (Crash #1) by Nicole Williams
A mature young adult contemporary romance novel. (Rated R)
(Four amazingballs hearts)
Book Blurb
Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.

Jude's everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.
My Review
This is being compared to Beautiful Disaster. And I can see why. However for me, this book fell slightly short of that height, but I certainly enjoyed the ride it took me on.

First let me say, Jude, our guy here is the real deal. I think he may be the first real bad boy in a YA series I’ve ever read. A lot of bad boys talk the talk and walk the walk. But they don’t have the criminal record to go along with it, lol.

There were a lot of twists in this book that I so predicted wrong. I think the author took pleasure in making us believe one thing and doing another. Well played. The drama that unfolded in this book had me riveted. Almost a five star but not quite.

My problem started in the beginning when I thought Jude’s dialogue was a bit old for his age. However, I take that back. After reading the whole book, I can see how he got that way. Doing time can change a person, lol.

I almost forgave it, but found the last twist towards the end although a shocker a tad bit unbelievable. Fate can be a bitch, but I’m not sure I buy that one. However, it worked. So I’m not going to take too much away from this one. I’m so looking forward to the next in the series. Yes, Clash is out. It will be my next for fun read.

Overall, certain well worth the price of admission. I was thoroughly entertained.

My book boyfriend, Jude.
