BOOK REVIEW: Crush by Lacey Weatherford

Crush
Author: Lacey Weatherford
Genre: YA Romance
Publisher: Moonstruck Media
Publication Date: October 18th, 2012

Book Description:
Cami Wimberley has a plan, and that plan includes no room for boys—especially the big time party animal, Hunter Wilder, no matter how handsome and charismatic he is. She’s beautiful, a senior, extremely talented, gets good grades, and is working her way toward her dream college to be a musical theater major. Everything is perfect.

Hunter Wilder does not want a girlfriend—that would complicate his life way too much right now. He especially doesn’t want this girl, Miss-Goody-Two-Shoes, so how come he can’t keep his eyes off her? He tries to keep her at arms length, but fate seems to keep pushing them together. Before long, it’s obvious to everyone they’re crushing on each other.

As sparks begin to fly, Hunter finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into hot water. Soon he’s scrambling to keep Cami from discovering his dark secret—one that can destroy their entire relationship.

MY REVIEW

Another cliched story gone wrong. What is going on with YA books these days? Whatever happened to suspense and twists? The plot needed rethinking for it was far too predictable. I knew Hunter's secret along with Clay's secret right from the get-go. The only reason I continued reading was because I hoped I was wrong about the story. Now I wish I had just stopped reading. I would have saved myself from further disappointment.

Not only did the story lack depth, the characters were also dull and underdeveloped. Clay was one of the most annoying characters I have come across in a long time. This book had been on my bookshelf for some time, and I'm slightly frustrated that after investing my time in it - albeit I didn't waste much time for it was a quick read - it didn't arouse any interest in me whatsoever. This book wasn't for me, and I'm glad I can put it behind me.

VERDICT:

BRONZE
