Kiss

What Leah did—only she really shouldn’t have—one hot night at a country club party.

Crush

What Leah has—only she really shouldn’t have—on the guy with the green eyes, the guy who is not her perfect boyfriend, the guy who does not fit in her picture-perfect life, the guy her sisters will only mock and her mother will never approve of. Not in a million years.

Collide

What happens when everything you always thought you wanted—having cool friends, being class valedictorian and homecoming queen—runs smack into everything it turns out you really do want.

Kiss. Crush. Collide.

— Amazon.com description

I usually really hate books that involve cheating or thoughts of cheating. And Leah has a boyfriend when starts to show interest in this “bad boy” from across town.

But the thing is that he doesn’t seem like that much of a bad boy, and her boyfriend is a total bore, soooo…who am I right now…but that was sort of enough for me to throw my morals out the window and root for the Cheaty McCheatersons.

WHAT?! I know, right?

Still, I never fully connected to any of the characters, so this book just didn’t work for me overall. I see why people might compare it to Simone Elkeles books, given the subject matter and the racy cover, but it just doesn’t stand up to her level. Still, I think it did make for an easy, summery read.

    I didn’t care much for this one as well. The Simone Elkeles made me have certain expectations…and they were not met. Great review!

    I am so so curious about this one. I do love the title. I think I might have to take it out of the library one of these days. Like in 2 years when I read everything else I have on my list. haha. Sorry to hear it was not all you thought it was going to be. I’ve heard the same from others.
