Crash by Nicole Williams

Title:  Crash

Author: Nicole Williams

My Rating: 5 Stars

Purchase for Amazon Kindle


Summary (from

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:

Nicole Williams has done it again! Each and every book she writes, she manages to pull at my emotions and make me fall in love with the characters. CRASH and Jude Ryder are no exception to this!

Nicole Williams hooked me as a fan for life with her Eden series so I jumped the second this book came out. Unfortunately, life kept me from devouring it right away. It was excruciating seeing all the reviews come in about it being so great and there I sat only at 16% with no time to go any further. So the first weekend I had free of baseball, I designated as "sit on my a$$" weekend and I was able to delve into the book and immerse myself in the world of Jude and Lucy.

And what a world it was! I loved Jude, I hated Jude. I felt sorry for Lucy, I wanted to slap Lucy. I loved Sawyer, I hated Sawyer. My emotions were all over the place and I wasn't sure which way I wanted them to go. The minute I thought I knew, a wrench was thrown in and I changed my mind.

This book was pure perfection to me. Bad boy, good girl, sketchy pasts, frustration, angst, love, and an ending that pulls it all together in a satisfying way.

If you love Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire or Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles, I highly recommend you read this book. If you like a story with a bad boy/good girl combination, I highly recommend this book. Heck, if you like a book that will grab you and keep you entertained until the end, I highly recommend this book.
