Crush by Lacey Weatherford


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.

A quickie review…

This book was a lot of fun to read because it had a little bit of everything. Young love, mystery and just enough action to keep me reading. What’s not to love about Hunter? He seems like the ultimate bad-boy or maybe not??? He’s delicious either way. Is it wrong for me to say that considering he’s in high school? WHYEEEEEE????

The issues I had with the book…
The dialogue didn’t always ring true to reflect the setting that Hunter and Cami were in, high school. They both seemed much older than they actually were and that ultimately became a little distracting. Let’s chat for a moment about Cami…while she didn’t irritate me, I did have a hard time connecting with her because I found her to be a little one-dimensional. The actual storyline is a bit predictable, so if you think that there is the element of surprise, there isn’t. As predictable as it was, I still wanted to know what would happen next so that’s a good thing.

While this book didn’t move me or excite me, it did manage to hold my interest.

My final two cents: This is the perfect book if you are in between reads.
