First Line: Summers turn me into a sucker.
Review: I could not get enough of Jude Ryder he is an all around bad boy with the reputation and criminal record to match it. A guy that any sane girl should stay away from since he literally spells trouble but Lucy Larson saw under all that and instead of staying away she taught him that he was someone that could be loved.
Crash was your typical bad boy falls for good girl and vice versa but what made this one so different was that the characters were witty and both Lucy and Jude had depth to their characters and I found myself emotionally invested in their relationship. Lucy was still dealing with her brothers murder and the impact it had on her family and both her parents changing into the worst, while Jude lives in a group home, his father is in prison, and the police know him on a first name basis.
I wanted to badly give this a five star but the secondary characters weren't as developed as I would have liked them especially since they did play a role in Jude and Lucy's relationship and contributed to them breaking up.
Overall I really really really enjoyed reading Crash and regret having let it just sit around for so long but I'm not making that mistake again I'll be picking up the next book very soon since I have to see how things play out with the two.
