    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.Quick & Dirty: This was a sweet romance filled with lots of sexy moments, and drama. It was the perfect ending for a wonderful series.Opening Sentence: Up, down.The Review:It’s been three years since Lucy and Jude got engaged. They just finished their junior year of college and life couldn’t be better. Jude has just been drafted by the San Diego Chargers and signed a multi-million dollar contract. Now on top of being the happiest couple ever they are totally rich, what could possibly go wrong. But if you know Jude and Lucy you know that their relationship is no walk in the park. They both have spit fire tempers and sometimes it seems that they fight more than they get along.Jude is living his dream of being a professional football player, but what about Lucy’s dream. She wants to be a professional ballet dancer and San Diego isn’t exactly the ideal place to do that. She also wants to finish school at Julliard which happens to be in New York. Now they have the whole country between them. Can their love survive the distance? Will they be able to compromise and work out their problems? Will Lucy and Jude get their happily ever after?Lucy is our very independent protagonist. She definitely has a mind of her own, and doesn’t like to be told what to do. She has a pretty quick temper, but she has worked on trying to rein it in especially when it comes to Jude. I loved Lucy in the first book, her spunk and attitude was fun and endearing, but as the books progressed my like for Lucy lessened slightly. It’s not that I didn’t like her still, but I just had a harder time connecting with her. She went from strong and independent to being over dramatic and a little irritating. She didn’t want her life to change, which I understand, but life is full of changes whether you want them or not. So for a good portion of the book I wasn’t Lucy’s biggest fan, but by the end she once again became the Lucy I loved in the beginning of the series.Jude Ryder is one sexy sweet man. He is as gorgeous as ever and he is so cute to Lucy. She is his reason for existing and he tries so hard to make her happy. Jude is far from perfect with his raging temper, and jealous streak, but all that makes him more human. He is respectful and very giving, but he also stubborn. Him and Lucy clash on a lot of things, but they have amazing hot chemistry. Watching Jude go from a broken boy in the first book to a grown man is a wonderful process. I loved his character and I’m sad to see his story end.I have to start off by saying I really loved this series. It was so fun, dramatic, sexy, entertaining, and heartfelt. I love that Jude and Lucy don’t have a perfect relationship. The fact that they have to work at it every day made it more real. There were parts there were a little overdone, especially with Lucy’s character, but overall, I still enjoyed this book. There are a lot more steamy scenes in this book then the previous two books which was a fun change. As always, I really enjoy Nicole’s writing. It’s engaging and so easy to get lost in. Her stories are always heartfelt and beautifully done. This was a perfect ending to a wonderful series. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants a good steamy NA contemporary novel.Notable Scene:I saw Jude before he saw me. He was spinning circles in place, and his eyes fell on me after a final revolution. His shoulders relaxed when he smiled. “Yo, Lu-cy!” he shouted–Rocky-style—above the noise in the airport, breaking into a run my way.I didn’t care that we were catching the attention of everyone within hearing and seeing distance; nor did I care about the show we’d be giving them soon. The only thing I cared about was the guy running at breakneck speed and getting his arms around me.I wasn’t walking anymore. My bags were bouncing against me as I dodged around people, and the corners of my eyes stung with the tears forming. You would have thought he’d been deployed to the Middle East for the past year from the way we were charging at each other.When Jude reached me, he grabbed me up and spun me around. I held on for the ride, wondering how another person could make me feel whole again. When Jude finally set me back down, I let my purse and carry-on fall to the floor. Folding me back into his arms, he pressed into me as tightly as two people could fit together. God, it felt so good.FTC Advisory: Harper Collins provided me with a copy of Crush. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.

    This is a trilogy that is being marketed as YA, and in the first book, the two main characters, Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, are in high school. By the third book they have graduated to college and the author has graduated to big time erotica. There are quite a few descriptions not only of sex but even of phone sex (using Facetime video interaction on smart phones). But it’s between two people in love and the language isn’t as explicit as it could be. The plots of the three books can be summarized as:Crash: When will we have sex?Clash: What sexy things will we do to each other when we get each other alone?Crush: When will we get married?Underlying themes for all three: fear of being hurt; jealousy; temper problems and impulse control; growing up.Side themes: Lucy loving to dance; Jude loving to play football.The series begins as if it is about a good girl mistaking a bad boy for a good boy, and vice versa, sort of along the lines of Pride and Prejudice. But once Lucy figures out what is what, or who is who, she admits her attraction to Jude, and they move on to the next theme: a hormonally challenged, stubborn, and often irritating girl trying to resist giving in to an intensely passionate and romantic boy who loves her to distraction. Finally, An Event intervenes, helping Lucy - at last - to figure out what really matters. We the readers already did, and had been shaking Lucy through three books.Evaluation: This is a nice romantic story. It doesn't always seem realistic, but what the heck. Take these books to the beach. Be prepared for lots of sex. ... in the books, at any rate.

    Ya’ll. I did it. I finally finish this series. It was hard to finish it because I fell for the characters. I wanted them to be happy and content.Plot: This story follows Jude and Lucy when they are finishing college. Things are happening upon them fast. Work opportunities and life all come crashing down and they have to make some big decisions. I like that this story still sticks with the old Jude and Lucy yet they have grown. It good to see them making decisions on their own yet together.Love: This is the area that I was most nervous about. Jude getting a lifetime opportunity and Lucy trying to pre-sue her dance dreams, communication get sidelined. They start arguing and seeing things differently. And it worried me. I just wanted to scream, “WORK IT OUT!!” But they kept hiding secrets, not telling their feelings and before you know it…BAM! It all explodes.Ending: I like the way it ended. They finally got their head on straight and starting thinking about each other instead of themselves. I like they the came back to the start in being friends.I loved this ending. It gave the perfect HAPPILY EVER AFTER that I wanted. Soo good and happy to see things work out nicely of them both. Crush is awesome!

    I have to say I was not disappointed with the end of Lucy and Jude's story. These two seem to thrive on drama though. That being said I am so happy that they come out on the otherside of it hand in hand. Even though they both have a ways to go I was glad to see them growing up. They are getting better at controlling their anger but some was a little out of line but when put into perspective made sense. There was a few times when I wanted to shake them both. Thank God for Holly because she seemed to be able to do just that. I didn't like the extra conflict added but I was so proud of Lucy and the way she handled it. I was afraid I would end up hating her. Thank heavens I didn't. Crazy anger issues or not I still love Jude. He overreacts a lot but once you get down to it he's just a boy afraid of being left like everyone has always done to him. He's scared and a little, okay a lot, possessive but his love for Luce runs deep and is true. I guess that is why her being so indecisive bothers me so much but like I said I am happy to see she has gotten better. Such a great ending, though I am sad too see them go but glad that maybe that means no more drama. I hope we see more of Holly,Thomas,India and even Anton.

    *spoilers!*This book... wow. I'm not really sure what to say, how to review it, without rambling like I usually do when I read such a book. First, let me say that I *loved* how the first part of the book was written... The summary on the back of the book mentions Jinx's crush on Lexie, but the thing is that if you don't read that summary, you'd have no idea at first!! The first... probably 1/3 of the book... Is so totally... totally *innocent*. Lexie and Jinx laugh and talk and pass notes and mess around, and it's all so innocent and sweet and cute. If you didn't know better you would have no idea where it would end up! I liked Lexie at first, I really did. I loved her attitude and spirit and wildness. But as the book went on, and Jinx fell for Lexie, and things started progressing, I started liking Lexie less and less. No, I started hating Lexie. She's a total bitch. She is THAT kind of person, that I hate: the girl who likes other girls and gets sexual with other girls, but sleeps with guys and steadfastly refuses to admit that she could possibly be queer and gets mad when it's suggested. Anotherwords, a complete hypocrite. And then when people find out and it's time to do or die, what did Lexie do? She pushed it all onto Jinx, said that it was totally one-sided and that Jinx had made her uncomfortable with her crush and all this bullshit! I try to remind myself that this novel is set back in the... well, the time period after JFK was killed. Homosexuality was a lot more frowned upon then. Especially in a "prestigous" all-girls school. But the way the whole thing was handled... The headmaster so easily beliving Lexie's lie about it being one-sided, and putting Jinx on probation and making her see a therapist while Lexie got no punishment at all... Lexie is so messed-up, she actually seems to *believe* it when she says that Jinx set her up, that Jinx was the one who initiated everything because she wanted Lexie to be "like her". I swear if Lexie was a real person I would smack the shit out of her. Damn.
