Crash - Nicole  Williams Cross posted here and at my blog: Take Me Away... This book gave me a lot of mixed feelings. I had heard so many things about Jude Ryder that I knew I had to meet him. So, I finally decided to dive head first into this story. What I got wasn't quite what I expected. Lucy is a girl who is very sarcastic and will tell you how she feels in any kind of situation. She recently suffered through a trauma that causes her to think she is able to save any and everyone. This Superhero complex doesn't change, even when she meets broken and bruised Jude Ryder. Together they find out things about each other that makes them in turn more about themselves. They fall in love and ironically, they turn out to be closer than they ever thought. What I enjoyed about the book was the writing. Every hot and steamy scene I was GLUED to. Williams really knows how to write a great love scene. She never went to far, but as a New Adult book, she gave us just enough. But I had to imagine Jude they way I thought he should look. For some reason, I did not like the author's description of him. I felt Idk, just that he should be different in a way. He just didn't seem hot enough for me. Which is weird, because he definitely IS a bad boy which I LOVED about him. Another thing I didn't really enjoy, was the unrealistic situations in the book. There were some times when I found myself rolling my eyes and saying "Really?" I mean I know this is a book, but if you're going to label it "Realistic Fiction" and base it off a romance, at leasst make it believable. A lot of what was in this book would not have ever taken place in the real world. What I did like though was the ending. I love how everything tied together. A couple of pages towards the end I felt like I had a lot of questions, but they were all answered in the end which I really enjoyed. In the end, it was an enjoyable read, but it didn't quite tickle "my bad boy and goodie two shoes girl fancy..."
