Crush - Chrissy Peebles
Crush is the first novel in the Crush eries. This book is free for the kindle. This novel is also part of a collection of five stories called Suspending Reality, all by Peebles. The collection is also free for the kindle. Taylor Sparks is seventeen and coming out of a bad breakup. Taylor and her parents just moved to Big Bear Lake, California from New York City. Moving from the big city to a house is the woods is a big change, but Taylor is adjusting. Then Taylor meets a mysterious boy named Jesse in the woods while chasing her dog. She could be in love, but there's something about Jesse that Taylor doesn't know. Jesse is dangerous. Will knowing make a difference though. This book is too much about teenage romance and too little about the adventures of having a paranormal boyfriend. Every time Taylor and Jesse meet you can expect two or three or more pages or how dreamy he is. That's it for me. Now maybe if you're a seventeen year old repressed girl you'll enjoy this. I didn't. Then there are the crazy lack of knowledge mistakes. At one point cougars and bob cats are interchangeable animals. At another point quintuplets meant four babies. At least have the sense to have some knowledge of what you're writing about, or get an editor who does. Not recommended.
