Synopysis: 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. - goodreads.com
Favourite quote: "Just you, Luce. No one else. There never has been."
Information about this book was very scarce but I seriously loved it! I seem to be really into contemporary books right now and Crash was such an amazing contemporary book. This book really needs more recognition! Lucy Larsen is the main protagonist of his book and I liked her and I felt sorry for her for the way her mother speaks to her. Jude Ryder was immensely hot! He was also so protective of Lucy and I thought that he was a great character. Crash jumps right into Lucy and Jude's story and I personally thought that their relationship was to quick. Vince was such a horrible person and I actually couldn't believe some of the things that he did to Lucy and Jude. Jude has been through a lot as he has been to jail 11 or 12 times, he has anger issues, his mother left him and his father is in jail and he also stays at a boys' home. Luce also has a tough life as her brother died and her mother treats her horribly. I really loved Luce and Jude's relationship throughout this book but sometimes I thought that Jude was a little too protective. Sawyer Diamond creates a love triangle in this book and he tries to start a relationship with Luce after Jude goes on the run after stealing a car. I loved how Luce tried to stay away from Jude but I was so happy when Luce and Jude rekindled their relationship! Sometimes Luce made some wrong decisions but she realised when she had made a bad decision and sometimes I felt that she was a bit nasty to Taylor. I also liked that Luce was a ballet dancer and she dream was to get into Julliard. Holly was a mystery and Luce thinks that Jude is cheating on her with Holly but it turns out that Holly has been Jude's best friend since 1st grade. The ending to this book was really well written and the attempted rape scene was suspenseful! The twist was also so unexpected! I cannot wait until the next book, Clash to see where Luce and Jude's relationship goes! I also love the cover! I would recommend this book to people who enjoyed Easy by Tammara Webber or people who enjoyed Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire!
