From the Back Cover
Fickle. Explosive. A hazard to girls everywhere. Lucy Larson, meet Jude Ryder.
Being the new kid is the last thing Lucy wanted for her senior year, especially after her hot encounter with Southpointe's bad boy Jude Ryder has her labeled a slut on her first day. But her sights are set on becoming a ballerina, and she won't let anything get in her way. Until she stumbles into Jude again.
Jude's got a rap sheet--an actual rap sheet--that runs longer than a senior thesis and moods that swing from delectable to dangerous. He's had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by who knows how many girls. He's a cancer, the kind of guy who's fated to ruin the lives of girls like Lucy--and he tells her so. But as rumors run rampant and reputations are smeared in the mud, Lucy isn't listening to Jude's warning. Is tragedy waiting in the wings?--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1. There were typos all over the place which was very distracting, and I had to keep going back to re-read the sentences until it made sense.
2. The characters - I didn't connect with the characters AT ALL. I don't know what it was, or how to explain it, but I just didn't really feel for the characters so I didn't like the story. I didn't think Jude was actually a bad boy. He just seemed like a petty criminal to me who did extremely stupid things. Don't even get me started on Lucy. She wasn't likeable at all and the things she did really frustrated me. She's nearly burnt alive, her hair is burnt off, she's doused in gasoline, but the thing she's most upset about is that he never rang?! Errr.... HELLO!!!????...PACK YOUR BAGS AND GET AWAY FROM THIS BOY!!!!
This is what you should have been doing Lucy!
Then it got even more ridiculous. She follows her boyfriend, because another boy who wants to get into her pants convinced her that he was cheating on her. This is the important part. Are you ready?... She sees him hug another girl, who by the way was carrying a baby, and he hands a bag of nappies over to her. OHHHHH!! That has to mean he's definitely cheating!!! There can't be any other explanation for it! There's no way they could just be friends because he goes in the trailer with her!!! A Boy would NEVER go inside a girls house if they were just friends would he?! ARGH! I knew how it was going to play out out as soon as she jumped to her conclusions.Read more ›
This was a great read, felt a lot more adult than just about high school kids, if I'd have realised that I would have read it a lot sooner. Looking forward to seeing where their story can go from here, but I do worry that we may have had the best of them in this book, I sincerely hope not.
But then Jude Ryder falls into her life. Jude with his cocky attitude, short-fused temper and liquid silver eyes. Lucy knows she should stay away from him. Jude himself tells her so, as does the rest of the student body, cops and of course her mother. But Lucy sees something in him vulnerable and knows he expects everything in his life to turn out s***ty. Seeing someone walk away from him is an old trick for Jude and he figures eventually Lucy will be no different.
On paper there is no less likely a couple. Lucy with her promising dance future and Jude with his lengthy rap sheet. But together they join to make one, beautiful whole. No one makes Lucy feel the things Jude does and for Lucy, Jude wants to be a better man.
There are a mountain of problems waiting to tumble down on the couple. Their peers, parents and the secrets Jude holds close to his chest.
Okay, before I go all fan-girl on this book and gush about just how incredible it is, let me just say this - Crash is the book that will make you fall in love with NA. Jude Ryder is one of the most compelling characters I have ever read (yes, even Travis from Beautiful Disaster) and I quite simply could not get enough.
Crash is one of those totally rare books where you mourn the ending just because it is the end. Good thing this is a trilogy and re-reading old favourites is one of my most favoured past times.Read more ›
