CLASH 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 279 reviews.

this woman's books make me want to cry, scream, laugh, and vomit all at the same time!! Clash was no exception! Lucy and Jude are about as dysfunctional as a Swamp People marathon! I was scared throughout this book that it would turn out effed up for these two characters but I should have trusted the author more lol! I swear my heart was beating into my tongue the whole book. There a few things the author put in this book that shed some light on my own love issues and helped me move past some hurts I have held onto. This book was highly emotional and sweet and amazing! I recommend not eating a big meal before diving into it unless you can hold your own against your emotions unlike me! I love Nicole Williams and her books never cease to amaze me every time! If you haven't read Crash, you really should and then get this one because it was absolutely an amazing reading experience!!

Although Lucy somewhat pissed me off, I couldn't stop reading. I get extremely into the books I read and, if its a well enough description, I can feel the characters' emotions. Yet this series is the only one I've ever read that was able to break my heart, make tears stream down my face, make me want to scream, AND keep reading. This is one I definitely recommend.

Jude is the best guy for Lucy, becuase he tell it like it is and it always takes Lucy to run into a wall to find out that Jude is never going to leave her!! Crush will you hurry up!!

I'm sorry but I expected more out of these series. They spend more time apart then together. Like in crash when Lucy and Jude broke up and she dated Sawyer for six months! Six months! More then the time Lucy and Jude have been together. And since everyone was saying how annoying Lucy was at first I wanted to prove them wrong but no she is as bad as they said. She kept walking away from Jude when he needed her the most. This second book seems to prove how much they shouldn't together. It was nothing new. ALL the problems were the same which made it boring. Oh and I hate how in their most intimate scenes they always had an audience. For example in crash they had an argument in the cafiteria in front of everyone then, an auditorium, to her apoligizping to him on a mic in front of an entire stadium! If it's private and personal it will MEAN more than telling the whole stupid world! I know the third book won't be any different.

Clash moves Lucy and Jude from the Highschool to the College scene. They are separated by a five hour drive and a canyon of relationship problems. All of the issues these two had in Crash, lack of trust, lots of temper, major jealousy...all still in effect and somewhat magnified in Clash. Jude is playing out his full ride football scholarship, hanging with fellow players and overly interested cheerleaders. While Lucy is balancing studies and dance and hoping to keep Jude's anger issues in check. When Jude is assigned a 'spirit sister' to make his campus life easier, it's Lucy who loses her cool and her trust in Jude. I've seen many comments from others about how unreasonably Lucy reacts to the things happening in Jude's life. She jumps to conclusions and does not put blind faith in Jude. I understand those points but Jude never really trusts Lucy either. If he did, he would have been more forthcoming and honest with her. I love Jude as a character, though he really needs to chill the hell out, but he's not without some pretty major faults in this edition of the Jude/ Lucy love saga. I love that he feels fiercely, be it love or anger. Lucy really is just a wreck. She has some fairly large life events happening and Jude complicates all of them for her. I thought many of her decisions were somewhat childish and based solely on fear. But other decisions she made were not without a healthy dose of thought. I can't fault her for those. Clash is another roller coaster ride, exactly what you would expect from these two love birds. You'll experience tears, anger, hate, love, sorrow...you name it. Clash is a heart-breaker of a novel. I enjoyed it and will continue with the series but am hoping for a big injection of maturity in the third installment. My Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

This series was very good, however, I think she overdid the angst and anger of the "heroine" and carried it too far, I got a little bored with her childish antics.

I really enjoyed this book. I absolutely LOVED jude. But lucy pissed me off throughout the whole thing. She didnt deserve jude's love. Jude changed everything for her. He became a better person. He loves her sooo much. He would do anything for her. Yet, throughout the whole book she questions this love. And she knows shes the only family jude has yet she only thinks of herself throughout the whole book. Ugh, typical. Oh and i did NOT like adrianna vix. But that pretty much explains itself when you rea dthe book. Tony was cool, i liked him as well as did india. Overall, good read but not even close to the first one. I loved crash. I give crash ( the first book in the series ) 5 stars! (:

The first book I read by Nicole Williams was Crash and I was seriously disappointed with the way she ended it. I had no idea that a sequel was going to happen until I did my normal every two week search for her name on B&N to see if she has new work out. THRILLED to see this book. I love how she didn't provide the back story - it was seriously like flipping the page in Crash to a new chapter. She picked up the story line and ran with it. Lucy tweaked me on numerous occasions. I was to the point where I didn't even like her as a person and her doubts were ridiculous in my opinion. I would have expected the issue to be over family (Jude's Dad/Luce's Brother) not over some cheerleader. I get that she was a trigger for Lucy to start doubting their relationship and how healthy it was for both of them, but I feel it could have been done in a different manner that was less cliche. At one point, I couldn't help but think, really this is where you took their story? But Jude balanced that out, his fight for their relationship, his belief in their relationship and his maturity of knowing that the roller coaster ride is worth it. This is really Lucy discovering what Jude already knew and that didn't really hit me until towards the end of the book. I also felt like there should have been a deeper conversation between the two about the issues that tore at them and what it meant for their future, but perhaps that's Ms. Williams way of saying there will be another book about these two (I can only hope). Overall, Jude makes up for Lucy in this book (which was pretty much the same situation in Crash). I love Jude and I'd read more about him any day of the week.

I couldn't stop reading, I ended up buying the next 2 books in the series and finished all 3 in 3 days.  Not a easy task with a house and 5 kids!  I enjoyed being able to relate to the characters and the constant questioning everything in the relationship and finally letting fate take over.

Good second book, had to reread since I purchased the final book. I still Love Jude and could not stand whinny Luce, there were several places if she had communicated with Jude, he would have understood her actions. Jude's situation reminded me of my Husband. He also has a scar on his face, when we first met I noticed it but afterwards I don't see it anymore, I didn't agree with Luce always bringing that up. I thought she was spoiled, selfish and could not communicate.
