Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good series end Crush, the third book in the Crash series, starts off a couple of years after Clash, which was set in freshmen year. Jude gets drafted into the NFL to a team that will take him to the other side of the country and, with Lucy taking a summer course, it means they’ll be separated. With Lucy taking a summer job and Jude’s football training, they barely have time to talk about their day, much less the issues that seem to be bringing them apart. I’ve enjoyed this whole series but Crush just might be my favorite out of the three of them. This is a high school love getting thrown into the real world and two characters with very different dreams that don’t really seem to fit together. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you love each other. I really felt for Lucy in this one. It would be easy to write her off as acting like an ungrateful child because Jude loves her so much he’s willing to do all these things for her. Except of course listen to her. If he had taken the time to listen to her instead of brushing off everything she said, he could have spared them a lot of the drama that happened in the book. Some girls would be more than okay with having their man make all the decisions for them but that’s never been Lucy so it’s easy to see and understand her fears of money changing the boy she loves. I love that she was supportive of Jude getting his dream but that she still wanted to achieve her own and that she wasn’t willing to throw away everything she’s worked for in the last ten or more years just because he now has enough money to support them both. Jude, I could understand where he was coming from in regards to finally having money. He’s never had it before, now that he does he can afford to buy his girl the things he’s always wanted to, buy things for himself that he’s always wanted, money wasn’t a worry for the first time in his life. For him, having money was all new and shinny and happy and how could it be evil? But I do think it changed him, at least a little. At times it felt like he was looking down on the life he shared with Lucy in New York, a life that she told him made her happy. There’s a lot of things Jude did that made me feel like he either didn’t really know Lucy or he was hoping she would change. Most couples will never have to deal with one half signing a multi-million dollar contract or becoming famous, but Jude and Lucy still face a lot of relatable problems. Distance, trust, different dreams, money, to name a few. Watching(well reading) Jude and Lucy trying to walk that line of compromising without giving up everything is something I’d like to see more of from couples in books. There was just so much about this book, especially Lucy, that I could relate to and the series does wrap up in a way that left me happy and a way that felt realistic. Not much else I can ask for(except maybe a clearer picture of the guy on the covers(swooning moment)).
