CRASH (Book #1)
Book description via Amazon:
Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He’s got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.
Jude’s everything she knows she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she’s about to find out, is the only thing she’s incapable of.
For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love’s about to become the thing that tears them apart.
(MATURE YA/NEW ADULT)
Jude is the hot bad boy with a rough life, Lucy is the girl-next-door but this story is far from the typical ‘good girl meets bad boy’ storyline. They are both damaged in their own way and need to find themselves but is it possible to discover their true selves together?
LOVED this book. Loved Lucy. She was strong feisty and independent and her chemistry with Jude was AMAZING. They’re both stubborn and loveable and you just can’t help but root for the both of them. The first half of the book I was hopeful and happy but the second half was full of crazy plot twists that I never saw coming. I was taken on an emotional roller coaster ride! Nicole Williams definitely does not disappoint.
CLASH (Book #2)
The only easy thing about Jude and Lucy’s relationship is their love for one another. Everything else is hard.Especially when it comes to reining in Jude’s trigger touch temper and Lucy’s increasing jealousy of Jude’s Spirit Sister on the cheer squad who’s attached herself to him in just about every way a girl could. Feeling the stress of trying to hang on to her quintessential bad boy while becoming the foremost dancer in her class, Lucy knows something’s going to break. She wants both. She needs both. But if she doesn’t make a choice, she risks losing everything.
For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love might be the thing that just isn’t enough.
(MATURE YA/NEW ADULT)
Jude and Lucy try to keep it together in college but obstacles keep getting in the way. Can they overcome them together? Or is love just not enough?
HOLY SH*T. This has to be my favorite sequel to-date. Hats off to you, Nicole Williams. Because you’re an amazing author. Throughout the book, Lucy describes her relationship with Jude as a roller coaster ride; Williams’ writing is just so intense, I felt every drop and turn in every single page. In this book, Williams managed to intensify the ride tenfold in comparison to the first. When Lucy was being stubborn, I hated her and my heart broke for Jude. When she was hurting, my heart hurt for her.
Every time I wanted the ride to be over, another drop comes along. I am not a cryer, not for books nor movies, but I may or may not have shed a small tear whilst reading this book. However, I started reading it at around midnight and read up until I finished it at 4am, so it may have been my eyes watering from exhaustion… *ahem* yea I’m pretty sure it was a tear of tiredness…
