[DNF Book #Review] Crash by Nicole Williams

Crash (Crash, #1)Crash
Jude Ryder and Lucy Larson are this generation's Romeo and Juliet: Explosive. Sizzling. Tragic.

A steamy summer encounter with bad boy Jude means trouble for Lucy. Her sights are set on becoming a ballerina, and she won't let anything get in her way . . . except Jude.

He's got a rap sheet, dangerous mood swings, and a name that's been sighed, shouted, and cursed by who knows how many girls.

Jude's a cancer, the kind of guy who's fated to ruin the lives of girls like Lucy—and he tells her so.

But as rumors run rampant and reputations are destroyed, Lucy's not listening to Jude's warning. Is tragedy waiting in the wings? 

DNF @ 50%


I couldn't do it. I just couldn't continue do this to myself with this horrible writing, ridiculous characters, and boring setting. Now, I do have to say that I listened to Crash as an audiobook so that might be one of the reasons why I really did not like it. 

Here's 2 statuses that I made myself write:

@20% - "He looked at me like I was weird. Maybe it's because I just went from being Caucasian to Tomato Red" <--- like WHO The F says that?

@45% - "BEWARE!! The thoughts of DNF'ing this book is upon me... :/"

I mean don't get me wrong, I love romance just as much as the next girl but it didn't click for me. Their conversations seems unnatural and the way they met was pretty ridiculous. & don't get me started about Lucy! Her personality was a complete turn off and I did not find her likable at all. 

I think the breaking point for me was when Jude was getting irritated with one of the girls that he hooked up with & Lucy was getting nervous that he's gonna get violent on her. STOP RIGHT THERE.If he's such a great guy, would he really want to be projected as a woman-beater? I'm sorry but that's what I ended up getting from that chapter. 

Overall, I'm sure there are people that will enjoy this book simply because of the nice-girl-and-bad-boy-who-can't-have-each-other factor but it made me lose interest. fast.
