I was so very excited to read this book because it was compared to the likeness of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles! But it wasn’t.

I had a hard time feeling anything toward the main character Leah. She is a girl that has everything that she could ever want and more. Sure her parents have expectations for her, I feel so bad that her parents loved her enough to want the best for her. In case that didn’t come across as sarcastic, it was meant to be. Leah’s parents weren’t perfect but I didn’t feel like that was enough to justify her actions. Her boyfriend, while he wasn’t perfect, didn’t deserve to be lied to and cheated on. Had Leah grew as a character and redemmed in herself by the end of the novel, I would have felt totally different about her, but she just didn’t have any character growth.

Her love interest Duffy, who is he? We didn’t really learn much about him. Their relationship had no substance.

The premise of the novel could have been a wonderful one, unfortunately the whole thing just fell flat for me.

Rebecca Eee, doesn't sound good :/ lol

Christina (Reading Extensively) I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that way about Kiss Crush Collide. This was definitely not like Perfect Chemistry or the other books it is compared to.

Isabel Character development is one of the most important factors of a book. That's too bad :/

Kristine Almost picked this up but decided to check with Goodreads first...good thing I guess. I can always count on your opinions, so sadly I won't be reading Kiss Crush Collide
