In Crush, will Jude and Lucy finally get their happy ever after?
The Crash series grabbed my attention immediately, I was drawn in, strapped into my cart and taken for the roller coaster ride that is Jude and Lucy. These characters, so different yet brought together/torn apart by a shared tragedy, have a connection that cannot be denied. There were times I wanted to punch them, hug them, shake them and cry with them and for me, that is the hallmark of a great book.
Crash takes us through the early struggles and revelations of their relationship, in Clash Lucy and Jude chase their dreams while trying to keep their relationship strong and intact and the final book Crush, will reveal whether or not they can rise above it all and have their happily ever after.
If you love bad boys, frustrating female MCs, angst and unresolved sexual tension than this series is a must read for you. I can’t wait for the final installment in this series, I can’t wait to see if Jude and Lucy get off this roller coaster of love together. I can pretty much guarantee that, given their history, it won’t be a smooth ride but it will be a riveting one.
