Crash (Crash, #1) by Nicole Williams - Review


Crash was the first book Nicole Williams book that I've read though I've seen her name all over the blogosphere. Again, diving further into the realm of the New Adult genre, this book seems to have gained some popularity over the past few months and so I thought I'd give it a whirl.


Lucy lives for dance and the dream of next year attending Julliard. And so her dancing and her dream are the only things that are going to get her through her senior year attending a new school as her family moves to their summer home, permanently. Lucy knows that all she has to do is keep her nose clean and work hard and she'll be away from her problems and her past but all that changes when she meets Jude Ryder. The local vigilantly and school bad boy, Jude is bad news and he has his sights set on Lucy. Will Jude be the one to destroy her future or her saving grace?

This wasn't my favorite New Adult book, but I really enjoyed reading it. Crash got away from the typical sexually abused past and raw emotional future and just brought forth a romance about a bad boy looking to change his ways and a good girl finding herself in the middle of his life.

I liked both Lucy and Ryder together and I thought that their characters were fun and interesting. Rather than having a build up and one big mistake that drives them apart time and time again Ryder messes up and finally loses Lucy. Of course, the story isn't over there as Lucy and Jude learn to overcome their pasts to work towards a better future.

This book wasn't boring and I read it rather quickly, but it wasn't the most exciting of books and didn't leave me gasping for breath. It was a quicky read that left me feeling satisfied and happy and didn't have me thinking to hard. Sometimes, you need those easy reads!

7 out of 10

Happy Reading :)

  1. I considered buying this one for my Nook because it was on sale, but I didn't. For some reason I just don't feel the spark. It sounds like a cute book but also light and fluffy. Thanks for letting me know it's an easy read. I may give it a shot sometime down the road.

    1. Yeah, there insn't a big "spark" in this book. It's entertaining, I really liked it, but it didn't have the WoW factor that kept me on the edge of my seat. I read the second book and liked it as well, but I found somethings that didn't work as well.

    1. I had heard great thigns about Nicole Williams as well and I liked this one and Crush, the second book. But I read her stand alone "Up In Flames" that just came out and I absolutely loved it. It was my the best NA book I've read so far (besides Easy by Tammera Webber). I would definitely check out "Up In Flames" if you're looking into Nicole Williams!

    1. If you love romance, then you'll like New Adult books. They just have a little bit more mature conduct and they're generally about people in their 20's in college. If you're going to start with one, I'd suggest reading Easy by Tammera Webber. It's GREAT! One of the best books I read last year! Thanks for stopping by!
