Book Review: Crush

Before you do anything, you absolutely have to go back and read CRAVE because this cannot be a stand alone. You can read my review for that one here and that book was so good. SO GOOD.  

Crush - Tracy Wolff

Everything feels off—especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am.

Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.

The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.

And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.

Maybe more than I’m able to give.
I want to tell you about this book and tell you all of the things but I'm trying to control myself. *I am really squealing on the inside and bouncing in my seat.*

Deep breath

In this book we begin back in Katmere Academy and learn that Grace has actually been technically gone for months. While people are happy she's back, the discovery of what Grace is is startling. She really is special but special isn't always what you want to be. 

Not only is Grace back but so is Hudson. Well, only kind of. He's seemingly connected to Grace, to both of their detriment, and the entire book is centered on the quest to get rid of Hudson for good. Unfortunately for everyone, Grace begins to form an unlikely friendship with Hudson, and it is hard not to because he is always with her. All of this is also putting on a strain on her relationship with Jaxon, her mate. 

I have to stop telling you anything more because it gives away some major plot points. I'm dying to tell you all of it. I loved this one. I loved that the author continues to write Grace as a bad ass and self sufficient character. This series is heavily compared to TWILIGHT and I can absolutely see the similarities, but one of the things that set this apart is Grace is no Bella, and thank god. Bella was the absolute worst and I am so glad Grace wants to be in charge of her own future and she's going to be the one making her own decisions and I am here for it. 

I loved we have creatures we don't hear of much at all (there's your hint) in the paranormal genre (at least I haven't), we have new plot twists coming at all angles, we also end with a bang (literally) and I finished this book completely blown away, I switched teams but I don't think it's a bad thing and it makes me feel better about another little tidbit mentioned in the book. 

Of course none of that makes sense to you because you haven't read it, but you need to because I need to talk to someone about it. I have so many things to say about this book but I can't. I'm so sorry. I know this is a cliffhanger of a review but it is the best I can do. Book three, COVET, is coming in March and book four, COURT, is hopefully not too far after. I'm crossing my fingers, lambs.
