Book Review: Clash (Crash #2) by Nicole Williams
Author: Nicole Williams
Date Published: December 18th, 2012
Main Characters: Lucy Larson, Jude Ryder, India, Lucy's Parents, Adriana Vix, and Holly
This is the second book of the Crash series. This book continue to follow the life of Lucy and Jude post-high school. They are in college and are trying to manage their newfound relationship while doing their thing and being in different scenes while in college. Jude is doing football while Lucy is at Julliard doing dance.
Lucy doesn't know where Jude is at, all she hopes is that he is doing okay and well. She wants Jude to be happy and successful, but she wants to be with him, after all they've been through... because she loves him.
Jude is the star football player at Syracuse. Everyone is cheering for him and seeing how talented he is. Everyone loves him, who wouldn't, right?
The book starts out with Lucy and Jude being at one of Lucy's dance shows. From the start, you can tell that Jude has jealousy issues when it comes to his new relationship. He is very protective over Lucy and he doesn't want any other guy to come and be with her.
So yes, this book is about jealousy and trust. Jude and Lucy take turns at being jealous of each other, kind of. There will be new characters trying to tear them apart.
There's a new girl in the picture. It's Adriana Vixen, the cheerleader trying to ruin Lucy and Jude's relationship. She makes it her mission to destroy them. Will it work?
Jealousy is huge in this book. It gets annoying at times because Lucy is the one causing most of the problems. She doesn't trust Jude, even when says she does. But Jude on the other hand is "perfect". He's trying his hardest to be faithful, and he has, but Lucy still doesn't trust him, at times. I guess that's how girlfriends are, jealous and overbearing...
But other than the annoying couple drama, they are still the same likable characters they were from the first book. They just work, even if they fight a lot. I'm rooting for them! I want them to be happy. But at least this book is realistic because being in love is not all lovey-dovey, there are some rough patches along the way.
If you liked the first book, then you'll like this book. It has the perfect mix of drama and romance. It's a fast paced book. It took me about a day or two to finish it. It's a good book, so give it shot! And the third book is also amazing. It is a must read as well.
