Blog Tour: Crash Excerpt + GIVEAWAY!

Thanks so much booksoverboys to let me be a part of this blog tour!

Crash (Crash #1)
 Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now. 

Jude's everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of. 

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart

I chose this excerpt because I loved the fact that the girl stood up for herself when the guy was being rude to her.


"I got out a couple of weeks ago,"he said in a normal voice,lifting a shoulder.I tried not to act thrown.

"And you couldn't call?"

"Of course I could have called,Luce,"Jude said,his voice tight.

"So you didn't call."

"Do you need an answer to that or are you just looking for a way to make me feel shitier than I already do?"

"You feel shitty?" I said stepping forward.

"You feel shitty?" I repeated just because it felt good.

"I was almost burnt to death by a couple of your acquaintances I would never have had the honor of meeting had it not been for you.My dog was burnt to death.I had two feet of hair go up in flames,was choked,gagged,and dosed in gasoline thanks to your friends.I'm officially an honorary Southpointe High slut somehow because everyone knows I know you,so that must mean I've slept with you six ways to Sunday."

I was giving the audience exactly what they wanted,a damn show,and they weren't missing a hot minute of it. 

This is just in the first 25% of the novel itself! I loved this scene and I know it's a little spoilery but I really wanted to share it!
