This week's Tease comes from:

(Book #1 Crash)

Nicole Williams

First - The Blurb:

Jude Ryder and Lucy Larson are this generation's Romeo and Juliet: Explosive. Sizzling. Tragic.

A steamy summer encounter with bad boy Jude means trouble for Lucy. Her sights are set on becoming a ballerina, and she won't let anything get in her way . . . except Jude.

He's got a rap sheet, dangerous mood swings, and a name that's been sighed, shouted, and cursed by who knows how many girls.

Jude's a cancer, the kind of guy who's fated to ruin the lives of girls like Lucy—and he tells her so.

But as rumors run rampant and reputations are destroyed, Lucy's not listening to Jude's warning. Is tragedy waiting in the wings? This racy romance is hot, hot, hot!

Second - My Tease:

He smiled down at me. Actually, it was more of a grin. A grin full of attitude and ego. It was a tad sexy too, and it could have been hella sexy if I hadn't already decided to not fall into this boy's traps. "I was wondering how long it would take to get you horizontal," he said, eyes sweeping down to my belly button. "Although I'm not really your missionary-style kind of guy."

And because I can't stop at one tease, here's another:

My hands slipped beneath his shirt, scrolling up his stomach until there was nowhere left to go but down.

"Luce," he breathed, when my fingers settled on his belt. "Stop." His hands gripped my hips firmly, but his mouth kept pace with mine again.

"I'll stop when you stop," I whispered against his mouth.

"Dammit," he sighed, pushing against me with his hands, but continuing to welcome me with his lips.

Third - My Thoughts:

Jude is the bad boy of bad boys. Yeah, he has a rap sheet almost as long as his arm. He's been in and out of juvy more than a dozen time. And he doesn't seem to care about anything or anyone including himself.

Enter Lucy. Luce is a girl who knows what she wants and she's not afraid to go after it. Nor is she one to let others push her around. Attracted to Jude almost instantly, she looks past his many faults and tries to form a relationship with him.

Numerous times he tries to warn her away from him, but she is stubborn - and I'm glad she was.

This book caught my attention almost immediately and I found it difficult to put down. Its well written, flows fast and keeps you enthralled to the very end.

I can't wait to move onto book #2 - Clash

My rating: 5 out of 5
