“Jude wasn’t just my first love. He was my forever love.“

Woohoo! Our lovable uber-protective badboy, Jude, is back!

I really liked this book, I had some issues with it, but overall, I was very happy with it. This book had great dialogue, swoony moment, heart breaking moments, a totally badass chick fight, a heart sick badboy, some big issues to work though and of course a happy ending

This book starts up after the ending of Crash (book #1) with Jude and Lucy attending college. Jude being the

"The name's Jude Ryder since you're going to be my wife someday soon. And I didn't used to do girlfriends, flowers, or dates. And then I met you, and that didn't work for you. So I changed for you. And you changed for me too."

Let me grab a mic and say...I Love You Jude Ryder Jamieson!!


This was a well written sequel and I did thorougly enjoy the ride. I read it in one sitting.

The reason for 4 stars and not 5 stars is because it was excruciating for this Jude fan to read how repeatedly Lucy pushes him away. I shed tears for him being so in love and witnessing him being crushed was hearbreaking for me. Don't think I could ever turn my back on him in a million years!

My wish for their future is that Lucy never ever walk

I realise I’m going to be in the minority with this one, but this book just didn’t work for me. I was so excited when I knew we were getting another chance to read about Jude and Lucy. After all they went through in Crash, I was excited to actually see them put the past behind them and be in a relationship... or so I thought!

“It feels like sometimes I’m just waiting for the bottom to fall out beneath us. You know?” I felt guilty for admitting it, but I was a realist, and couples like Jude and me

I'll admit that the first book took me by surprise, it was really nice despite some editorial mistakes which were editorial so I tried not to be judgemental. This one had some, too.. But that's not why I gave this 2 stars.. What made me give this 2 stars is mainly the fact that the storyline in this one was not as thick as it was in the first one. I could have done without reading this book, and still be pleased with just the first one.

What I'm trying to say is that this was not as good

THIS BOOK WAS TERRIFIC! But really, after book one, I expected nothing less than AMAZING… and I got it!

The Review:
Clash is the second book in the Crash series. Book one, Crash, was a force to be reckoned with! I loved it. This book was just as amazing and filled with just as many angst’s and exciting hurdles to climb.

Lucy and Jude, who overcame major obstacles in book one throughout their last year of high school, are now in college. And though their colleges are only five ho

3 Stars... Just finished Clash and I'm already missing Jude and Lucy! I guess that would be a sign of a good story...

Clash continues the story of Jude and Lucy as they make their way through their not so easy relationship, which I feel displayed even more turbulence in this book than the last. Although Jude was adorably dedicated and pretty much in it till the end, Lucy's doubts plagued her through the entirety of this book. She went back and forth, uncertain if she and Jude were supposed to be

Hmmm, where to start. I have mixed feelings about this book, because, I did love it and was completely rooting for Jude and Lucy, but parts of it drove me up the wall! I absolutely adored the first book. Clash was good, but not as good.

Where, in Crash, I loved Lucy and her sassy attitude. I loved that the characters had real how-will-they-ever-get-through-this issues to contend with and still managed to battle against the odds and convince the reader that the decisions they made were the right

My reaction to this one is the same as the first one, it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the best.

It was the same exact thing, except now instead of being in high school, they're in college.
The description made me think that dancing would actually play a role in this book. But no. Dancing is barely mentioned, again, in this novel. Lucy dances about twice in the novel, and the rest is just her fighting about leaving or staying with Jude. Hell, Jude playing football is mentioned more than her danci
LOVED this story!!! Jude Ryder is all kinds of sex-on-a-stick and he loves Lucy with such a Travis Maddox-like intensity, it makes him all the more appealing. If you are into teenage love stories with a hefty dose of angst, then this 2-book series is perfect for you!

The first book, Crash, takes place during Jude & Lucy's senior year in high school. This is when they meet, fall in love, and, unfortunately, are faced with numerous external situations that end up dictating their relationship.

No me gustó para nada. Muy cliché.
Díganme, ¿hay alguien más insoportable que Lucy Larson? El libro básicamente se trata sobre sus dudas e inseguridades sobre Jude, así que me costó seguir con la lectura por eso.

Quiero rescatar una de las pocas cosas entre estos dos libros que me gustaron: el cambio que tuvo Jude.

Empezó con un: "Mi nombre es Jude Ryder, ya que sé que estás casi babeando como un perro rabioso por saberlo, y no tengo novias, ni relaciones, ni doy flores o llamadas regulares. Si es

I'm giving Clash 3 stars, it was really hard to rate because it was shorter. I really loved the first book, but I couldn't quite follow this one because of Luce's behavior. During this book, she couldn't make up her mind and she kept running away from Jude... I get that she was confused and insecure but come on, she was hurting t

**5 "Jucy" Stars!!**

I can't explain how much I loved this book.

Jude is trying everything he can to do right by Lucy. He's tamed his temper, changed his "no dates, no girlfriend" rule, but jealousy is still rearing her ugly head. In this case, that would be Lucy. Although, it doesn't help with Adriana Vix in the picture. She's the definition of man-eater. She knows where to put her claws in a man to bring him to his knees; Guys salivate over her and come flocking when she bellows.

I'm giving this one 3.5 stars. I really loved the first book, Crash, but had some problems with this one. I thought that the sequel was going to help me come to terms with those feelings. But I can't say I feel any better at the end of this book. Not that it didn't end well.... I don't want to bring up spoilers, but I don't know that I can keep from doing so. So if you don't want to know too much, then don't read this review until after you finish the book.

I read this book non-stop over a couple of hours unable to put it down, but not because I was loving it, but because I couldn't believe how much a character could annoy me. Lucy drove me nuts in this book. Thankfully, it didn't stop me from needing to know what was going to happen. Jude stole my heart in the first book and he didn't let it go at all in this one.

I find myself confused about my feelings for this series, but I will be reading the next book, just because I have to know what

A stunning sequel to Crash and an even more emotional journey for our beloved characters, Lucy and Jude, two young people carrying a lifetime of hurt on their shoulders. This story explores what happens after their apparent ‘happily-ever-after’, whether love is enough to erase the stains of the past and which things in life are truly worth fighting for.

Lucy and Jude are back together. Their bond is stronger than ever and they are inseparable. They are in college now but in cities hours apart. Ho

—Lo sé, cariño —dijo—. Lo sé. Pero cuando lo haga, nos cogeremos a una cuerda y esperaremos a que se pase juntos."

Si tuviera que dar un euro cada vez que Lucy duda o se siente insegura en este libro, ya estaría viviendo bajo un puente arruinada y en soledad.

I was scared throughout this book that it would turn out effed up for these two characters but I should have trusted the author more lol! I swear my heart was beating into my tongue the whole book.

3.5 Stars!
I have to say....I was a little disappointed in this book. And Jude definitely saved it for me. I thought there were too many lows and not enough highs. Jude and Lucy were fighting more then they were happy....and nothing is better then when Jude and Lucy are "on". What happened to Lucy in this book?? She was SO insecure and gave up on Jude so easily. I really hope that this is not the last book in the series...while it did end happy I need more happy. And more Jude--YUM! :)

Well Jude is definitely as hot as ever and I do love Luce, but she really annoyed me at one point and I wanted to yell at her what was she thinking. I think this book had more ups and downs than the first . I could see the initial angst coming, but wasn't prepared for all the ups and downs to follow, every time I thought things would work out and I felt relieved, I turn the page and my relief was short lived! An enjoyable Sunday morning read.

"Love is like a seed.You’ve got to plant it to grow. But that’s not all. You need to water it. The sun needs to shine just enough, but not too much. The roots have to take hold.And from there, if it pops its head above the surface, there are about a million things that could kill it, so it takes a whole lot of luck too.”

4.5 stars for Clash only because Lucy didn't learn anything from her mistake in Crash.I would have rated with 4 but in the end she changes(and I hope it will last) and does a b

I must say that I was hoping this book would meet my expectations after reading the first book in the series, but for me it fell short. I think there was too much "roller coaster riding" in Jude's and Lucy's relationship that I began feeling it was ridiculous; however, I still wanted them to get together.

I thought parts of the plot were ridiculous, such as (view spoiler) Really?

La única cosa fácil en la relación de Jude y Luce es su amor mutuo, todo lo demás es una gran mierda difícil.

Ahora están en la Universidad, y el temperamento de Jude no ha cambiado, y agreguemosle a esto los celos que surgen de Luce por una animadora que persigue a Jude de todas las maneras posibles para una chica. Luce sabe que debería centrarse en el ba
