From the very first page I knew I was going to love Fletch Colson. He had me smirking by the 5th line and I knew I needed to continue. I have read books that are solely from the male point of view before and if done well I love it but if done poorly it can take me out of the story and I am aware it is a female writer. Believe me when I say- there was nothing feminine about this boy.
We meet Fletch in his senior year of a private boarding school, he wants to go out on one last hurrah and with his parents' influence within the school he knows he can push the boundaries further than most.
Fletch's life is made up of partying, booze and girls. One girl in particular has a hold on him and maybe even his heart. Calista and Fletch have summer hook ups and their parents have not so subtly been grooming them for marriage. Fletch has been swept up in the assumption that Calista is the one he will end up with until events unfold and he realises all is not what it seems.
And then there is Ellie. Sweet, sweet Ellie is introduced as a pawn in Fletch's world. He makes a bet with his friends that he can have a platonic relationship with a female without trying to get her in bed. This is how their relationship starts out and Fletch will soon realise he needed Ellie more than he thought.
Unbeknownst to Fletch he embarks on a journey of discovering who he is as a person. He has to peel back the layers of the stereotypes his parents and friends had assumed him to be.
I really enjoyed this book; I read it in one sitting and finally finished it at 2:40am (totally worth it though).Read more ›
Crushed tells the story of Fletch, a teenager at a boarding school who is going through the motions, until his real life can begin. It's a journey of friendship, lust, love and ultimately self discovery. Fletch is not a bad boy per se but is a player. He sleeps around, he drinks and dabbles in occasional drug use but he's also smart and doesn't let his extracurricular activities interfere with getting good grades. He's playing the game while having a little fun on the side and after all, it's expected at least according to his father. As it turns out, things are a little complicated with his childhood friend Calista who keeps mind f***ing Fletch (and not in a good way) and basically no one thinks he can be "just friends" with any girl. Fletch is determined to prove everyone wrong but is he even capable of this? And at what cost?
I normally groan when I see that a story is set at a boarding school but it's usually a paranormal story and the character is the stereotypical new kid. Not so in this case. I have to be honest and say that sometimes I have a rocky relationship with contemp stories but I did enjoy this one.Read more ›
Fletch Colson is a seventeen year old who has slept with virtually every girl in the school. In my opinion, if he was a female, he would be labelled a slut. He is very charming and likeable to his fellow classmates. However, to me, he is a thoughtless, selfish jerk, who doesn't take his life seriously. When he makes a bet with his friends that he can be "just friends" with a girl, he is unprepared for the feelings she stirs in him.
Although I haven't read many books from the male point of view, Fletch's story is one that touched me. I went to a high school that had borders (staying on campus), but I was never one myself, so I don't know what went on personally, but I imagine it went something like this story. As I started reading this story, I didn't like Fletch very much. His selfishness and thoughtlessness grated on me. However, as the story progressed, and I found out there was some hidden motives, and a bit of manipulation going on by certain characters in this book, I was completely on Fletch's side. By the time I reached the end of the story, I was cheering him on!
Dawn Rae Miller has written a fantastic YA Romance, but be prepared for lots of bad language and mention of sex and sex acts;
It is not explicit or erotic, but there's a lot of it! Therefore, I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, if you love YA romance (+17), this one is for you. - Lynn Worton
Complete waste of my time.I think it has been aimed at teenagers though i am
sure they have more sense .

Loved every word of it And I loved all of the characters too.
Really really was easy to read. Thank you.
Good book, not predictable and different! The ending was a little rushed and left too open in my opinion but still..... loved it!Published on 19 May 2013 by Unknown
This book is readable but could have been a lot more exciting and just when the story started it was the end. It is worth a read but a bit disappointing.Published on 13 April 2013 by simone

Very good read, loved the story. Could not put it down, the main character Fletcher and his story to finding himself was heart warmingPublished on 11 Feb. 2013 by H100
I especially liked that this book was written about a male persona as a lot of 'young adult' romance books feature the life of a female, this made it different and stand out to me... Read morePublished on 8 Feb. 2013 by Jessie
