Review: Clash (Crash #2) by Nicole Williams

Clash (Crash, #2)
Genre: NA Contemporary
Paperback: 273 pages
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: December 18th 2012
Purchase: Amazon | The Book Depository
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.


Now that Jude and Luce are in college, the whole story take up to the next level. Jude is now a star player in their football team while Luce did a pretty great job in her dancing career. But with Jude's name in the school's spotlight, dealing with all the attentionespecially of the female admirerswas a little too hard for Luce to bear.

The book's title is very perfect for what I feel for this book. I do have different and clashing reactions toward this book. FIRST: I was excited to find out what's next in Luce and Jude's life. After the revelations in the first book and how it ended I can't wait to find out what Nicole Williams has in store for us. I get that the Crash is the intense book in this series, so reading the Clash was an easy one... well that was my first thought. 

SECOND: I was a bit pissed at Luce. I know she's a very talented girl, she's a humble person and that she love Jude. But there were times when I really wanted to enter my phone and shake some sense into her. I understand that she has trust problems regarding the girls who surrounds Jude and probably to herself too. But her decisions, I think, were out of place sometimes. I was so close to not finishing this book because of her attitude alone.

I am happy that despite of what's happening to Luce, Jude didn't give up on their relationship. He supported her decisions and understood that she needs time for when Luce is back with herself again. He's there to welcome and accept her whole. There's also the return of Holly who I really adored. I had fun reading this because of her. Then India, Luce's roommate, who was like the voice of the readers (if you want to lecture Luce, then yeah she's the person). 

Although the concept of this book is not different from any other New Adult books I've read or will probably read, I still loved this story so much that I felt sad now that the series is finished. Yes, I've read the third book before I write this review... but there's nothing to worry about because these are my first thoughts on Clash and reading Crush does not affect this review. My review of Crush, which is the last book in the series, will be up soon!
