Their Romeo-and-Juliet-level passion is the only thing Jude and Lucy agree on. That, and fighting all the time . . .

Also not helping? Lucy's raging jealousy of the cheerleader who's wormed her way into Jude's life.

While trying to hang on to her quintessential bad boy and also training to be the top ballet dancer in her class, Lucy knows something's going to give . . . soon.

How can she live without the boy she loves? How can she live with herself if she gives up on her dreams? If Lucy doesn't make the right choice, she could lose everything.

If you know me by now, then you know that once I start a series and get hooked on it, there’s no turning back. And thank God that I had the second book in hand, which I quickly went to after finishing Crash.


The plot of the book is one of those plots that you can’t help but fall in love with. A couple, in the midst of their college years facing drama with friends, careers as well as people coming into their relationship and trying to ruin it. Each chapter pulls the reader deeper into the lives of Lucy and Jude. Both have grown up since Crash, but still need the re-assurance of one another.


The love interest is well…what can I say other than I love it! In the moments of peace or even when they fought, they were always on each other minds. They sought out one another unknowingly doing what they can to fix the situation any way that they can. I loved that once they got over their fears, their able to stand by one another and support each other. The ending of the book left me so giddy that I am literally jumping off my seat, ready to see how it will all end in the last book, Crush.


Clash is an amazing exploration of life and love in college. Impressive with the world building of college and life decisions, Clash remains solid. Thrilling and brilliant, Clash is awesome!


I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!
