The Crash Series

Crash (Crash #1) 

Mature YA
Source: Kindle
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.... 

I liked this series and can't wait for the third book. In this book you fall in love with Jude and Lucy. 

This book had a Beautiful Disaster type feel to it.  Which is good because I loved that book as I did this one as well. 

Poor Jude has had such a tough life and doesn't believe he can find nor deserves love well....until he meets Lucy. There love together could be considered on the unhealthy scale but it is raw, explosive and passionate. 

When you find out the connection to their pasts it guts you and you wonder how they can move on from such tragedy but there move seems vulnerable but strong enough to survive even the worst.

Clash (Crash #2)

The only easy thing about Jude and Lucy’s relationship is their love for one another. Everything else is hard.

Especially when it comes to reining in Jude’s trigger touch temper and Lucy’s increasing jealousy of Jude’s Spirit Sister on the cheer squad who’s attached herself to him in just about every way a girl could. Feeling the stress of trying to hang on to her quintessential bad boy while becoming the foremost dancer in her class, Lucy knows something’s going to break. She wants both. She needs both. But if she doesn’t make a choice, she risks losing everything.

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love might be the thing that just isn’t enough

My Review...

This book starts where Crash ended. Normally I like the first book in a series but with this series I have to admit that I liked Clash better. Where Crash was a build up of what Jude and Luce are. Clash is the guts of Jude and Luce.  

In this book Luce almost loses her mind in self doubt and insecurity where Jude shines with his over the top extreme love.  Even though his love his all encompassing it still wows you to the extent of how he loves. 

One of the best parts is Luce's cat fight with the peak of her unstable emotions.  Even though Luce questions her love, Jude NEVER doubts it. Thanks goodness for Luce's mom for helping her see the light of what real love is and not fairytale love. 

Now I can NOT wait for book three. I just hope that my heart will be able to survive this rollarcoaster of Jude and Luce.
