Our customer reviews In Short - Clash follows on perfectly from Crash. - I love that Nicole tested Jude and Lucy's relationship in Clash and didn't give them an 'easy ride' - Both Jude and Lucy's characters continued to grow and develop in Clash. - It's an emotional and raw read that is near impossible to put down! In Long I finished Crash, the first book in the series, feeling quite satisfied and was unsure whether to read Clash. I think I was a bit nervous I would feel let down by it after loving Crash so much and not knowing if Nicole could write another book on them which I would love as much as I did as Crash. I am pleased to say that Clash most definitely was not disappointing and I loved spending more time with Jude and Lucy. I loved that Nicole tested Jude and Lucy’s relationship in Clash by putting them in quite a testing living situation. Lucy and Jude are living 5 hours away from each other as Lucy is at dance school. I was really intrigued to see how their relationship would cope with this big challenge as well as the other challenges they faced. Clash is quite an emotional and raw read. I really loved that Nicole went deeper into both the characters lives and I felt like I got to know them even more than I did in Crash. Their characters have definitely made both Crash and Clash amazing reads, even more so because both characters have likable personalities. The pace of the storyline changes throughout the book but there wasn't any point I got bored and I struggled to put the book down each time I had to! Final Thoughts I am so glad that I chose to read Clash straight after Crash, I loved getting to see where Jude and Lucy’s relationship went next and to see them face their next challenges more

Oh my God. I don't even know how to start this review. This novel was more along the lines of Beautiful Disaster. There was much more disaster and, well, clashing. I found that Jude was basically a completely new person. He thought more before using his fists and I absolutely love him. He was no longer getting into trouble or even pushing Lucy away. Instead it was Lucy that was being completely crazy. At one point I hated her, and then I realized that was a point of the novel...she is being absolutely ridiculous in this novel and she has to realize it. But, man! I wanted to keep reading. And there is this hospital scene that will leave everyone freaking out. You'll be questioning things and just simply revelling in the moment as well, not to mention the truck scene in the beginning had me oozing onto the floor while I read it. There are many times through the story that I want to punch a certain girl named Adriana, and then I was wondering why Lucy wasn't punching her and then I wanted to slap Lucy. Oh, the drama. There are many other moments that I was very angry with Lucy and wanted to slap her, but, again, that's the point. This book is about Lucy figuring her stuff out, trusting Jude, and finally allowing herself to be with him. Basically Jude has become the adult in this book where Lucy was the adult in the first book. This book was intense! The emotions that go on between Lucy and Jude in this novel are intense. And I loved that this book takes place in College, it add a whole other element to the story and you can see how far the characters have grown. Nicole Williams takes you on a sizzling, toe-curling, who-cares-about-the-rest-of-the-world, roller-coaster ride romance that will leave you boneless and without a care in the world expect for "What is next for Jude and Lucy". Good: Lucy-you make me mad, but to be honest I can't say I wouldn't have done some of the stupid things you did as well. Jude-the friggin' adult in the story. The kind of guy who walks out onto the field and knows that his girl is checkin' out his butt so he gives it a little smack and then gives her a wink. Down-right drool worthy. Loyal, honest, and finally out of trouble. Tony-you may be a player, but you are a good guy down deep. Holly-I love your four steps on how to snag a man and drive him crazy. Bad: Adriana-I wanted to punch you. But, you are the villain of the story so I guess those feelings are intentional. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall I read the book in under 24 hours because I could not put it down. Seriously it never left my sight. Sometimes I found myself simply staring at the cover. I found the humour in the book light (not as much as there was in the first), the drama loaded; this book definitely brought the passion. I never had to re-read something to understand it, in fact, the only time I re-read something was because it was utterly awesome and I needed to read it again. Overall, this book was magnificent, the story-line was filled with the right amount of drama and sexy, and people trying to figure their stuff out at the age of eighteen. It's definitely a book that I am a proud digital owner of, but also I plan on getting me a physical copy to sit proudly upon my shelf. This book is note-worthy and if I could pull an Italian Job and get my hands on the next novel before it comes out I would. I really, really more
