    4.5 Stars. It took me a couple of chapters to get into Blue Crus

    4.5 Stars. It took me a couple of chapters to get into Blue Crush, but once I did, I was in all the way. Gen is somewhat annoying at times, but Lewis more than makes up for it. He’s H.O.T. hot – one of the sexiest guys to cross my pages in a long time. The heat is intense without being overt and the relationship develops slowly while achieving a heart-pounding pace. How is that possible? I’m not sure, but I just know that Jules Barnard has managed to pull it off.

    Plot
    The plot is a little different from other NA books I’ve read. For one, it’s not a straight out romance. Gen is tired of being pushed around, particularly by men. Her mother is a lousy role-model, her ex-boyfriend a total douchebag, and her new job makes her the target of every lecherous man in the greater Lake Tahoe area. It doesn’t help that one of the executives at the casino where waitresses thinks she’s available for anything and everything he wants.

    She runs into Lewis who gets her blood pumping in a way no guy ever has. But there’s one little problem – there’s another girl in the way. The nature of his relationship with this other girl is murky at best. When Gen decides to step out of her comfort zone and sign up for the Alpine Mudder Run, Lewis volunteers to help her train and sparks fly. When it comes to whether or not she can control her raging hormones around this delicious slice of man candy, all bets are off.

    A series of well-developed subplots are woven into the main plot, making this far more than your average NA romance.

    Characters
    While Gen can be a bit hard to take at times, but she has her likeable points, too. She’s a loyal friend, works her ass off, and she does have boundaries. She respects herself and others, and wants to do the right thing. And Lewis is perfection wrapped up in the prettiest paper on the planet. The supporting cast are not fluff, but remarkably well developed and do more than provide background scenery.

    Bottom Line
    I thoroughly enjoyed Blue Crush. It’s steamy, romantic, and at times funny. I may have just found my new favorite NA author in Jules Barnard.
