And Teddy, and to a lesser degree the other boys, too, have to deal with the guilt of having brought these people into contact with her. Birdie has to wake up from the lovely dream which was her life up to this point and deal with the horrible humiliation and publicity of a trial, where even her most private life becomes fodder for the tabloids. The boys, too, have to see their beloved girl through new eyes, and see the real woman she is.
Birdie and Teddy have to be strong in ways they never thought they would, and face reality, maybe for the first time ever, and move forward into it together.

She and Teddy have adjusted and come to terms with the harsh reality dealt to them, and moved on with their lives.
Birdie and the boys have, at long last, come to the end of their youth, and are ready to embark on the journey of being adults, of living the rest of their lives. This is the last installment of the UK Crush series, and it is filled with the usual love and laughter and tears, weddings, and surprises. There are dogs, cats, toddlers, babies, honeymoons, and new romances to explore.

It kept you on your toes and trying to figure out what would be happening next. It was a great read with smart characters. Claire - The Coffeeholic Bookworm. I was utterly surprised with the outcome of this book. I was in shock, just like Cami, but I think I sobbed more than her. A boy died right in front of her, asked for her help seconds before he took his last breath.

There was something about him that made her breath hitched. And then there was Clay, her best friend since they were kids.

Jan 10, Jucilene rated it did not like it Shelves: What a ugly cover!!! So I was almost quitting when I read this I always keep my word. My reaction was a endless laughter!! View all 6 comments. Oct 22, Orchita rated it did not like it. This book was absolutely horrendous. I'm still in shock from how bad it was. The writing was extremely amateur.
A book is a book for a reason. If you are published and are making money, please make sure that you can at least write well better than you talk. There were A TON of grammar mistakes. Quite frankly, I've read better amateur work than that. The plot was so ripped off. I've read this same plot twice already, and both of them were much better executed than this. This was such a waste Wow. This was such a waste of time.
If you have problems with badly written ripped off books, I suggest you look elsewhere for your thrills. You won't be getting any here. Oct 22, Christy rated it it was amazing.
See a Problem?
First off, I love this cover! Made me jump this to the top of my tbr list. Cami is a good girl 'goody'. Hunter has a pretty big secret that is keeping him at an arms length from everyone at his new school. Even though he knows he shouldn't be, he is drawn to Cami and he just can't stay away. I have to say, I loved Cami. She was a great mc, and holy hotness Hunter! You just had to love him!
At the beginning I really want First off, I love this cover! At the beginning I really wanted to like Clay Even with all that said, I didn't see him doing what he did to Cami at the end, wtf?
I loved that the book switched between Cami's and Hunter's pov. This book was sweet, fun, a little suspensful with some awesome Hunter steamyness: Oct 08, T. Smith rated it it was amazing.

Crush (Crush, #1) by Lacey Weatherford
Weaving a tale of drama and suspense as we watch the relationship between Cami and Hunter grow, and as hard as Hunter works to keep his secrets Cami works at unraveling them. Obsession leads to deception as love, jealousy and betrayal collide leaving us with a jaw dropping revelation at the end. Weatherford has a distinctive writing style with the ability to create storylines with depth and realism; her characters are real, believable and relatable. If her name is on a book I immediately want to read it, regardless! Sep 24, Annie Brewer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ever since I read Chasing Nikki which by the way, killed me but I still loved it , I knew Lacey had become a favorite author of mine.
I was so excited to hear that she was writing another novel in that series, and I can't wait to get my nitty gritty hands on Finding Chase. I am impatiently waiting for the release! Anyway, so once I read the blurb and saw this Review to come! I contacted Lacey and she happily sent me a review copy she's so sweet and I was fangirling for like an hour. Well, I quickly started it and insta love was the first thing that happened. Just like Chase, I fell head over heels for that delish, charismatic hot bad boy.
One thing I have to say, is that Lacey has a way of creating stories that speak to your heart and albeit, they can be tear-jerky and emotional as all get out, but she really knows how to capture her readers with every story she writes. Now, this is only the second book I've read from her but I know there will never be a book she puts out that I won't like.
Gahhh, I love her! Seriously, I am so grateful to have gotten an ARC in return for an honest review. It means alot to me. So CRUSH was a beautiful story about Hunter, a sexy bad boy with secrets of his own and our beautiful and strong heroine Cami who is just your ordinary teenager wanting to get through her senior year with no real plans set except to not fall in love with a bad boy like Hunter , and it's about trust, love and friendship. But with secrets, can they make a relationship work??? The characters- I loved them all. I even liked her sweet geeky best friend Clay, even though he had developed feelings for her over the years.
She just never knew it and it was weird for her since they knew everything about each other.
Crush (Crush, #1)
I felt bad for him but at the same time, I didn't want him to get in the way of Cami and Hunter having a relationship. Hunter, I can't say enough good things about him. I knew I loved him before he even came into the picture. He was sweet, sexy, caring, selfless and I just loved him so much! My heart broke for him at some parts. And then there's Cami. I love a good heroine that you can relate to, and I can relate to her. She's amazing, strong, funny, sweet and innocent and she had great character development-never once annoying me like some heroines do in my books.
She became my best friend by the end of the book. All of the characters have a special place in my heart and I will always care for them. I secretly have a rendeveu with Hunter in my sleep! Haha The Writing-I have nothing bad to say about the writing. It's real, it flows perfectly and flawlessly and I really feel like I'm there experiencing the journey along with the characters.
I loved seeing the story in their eyes and understand what they were feeling at all times. It was incredible, but then again I expect nothing less when it comes to this awesomely talented woman! Lacey has a gift of writing and I can't wait to read future books of hers! I hope to learn a thing or two from her. Go check out her books, you won't regret it!!!

If I have to be totally honest, I'd say that I kinda figured out the twist in the middle. It was a little obvious to me, but I still had my doubts and as it turns out, I was right all along. Cami may just be on MORE!! Cami may just be one of the most naive, insensitive or trusting fictional character that I have ever come across. She has her moments. I like that she doesn't really care what other people say. I love how she can be outspoken one minute and then be all shy and blushing the next.
He's every girl's dream come true. I always say that I love books with a guy's POV. Now, in Hunter's case Cami and Hunter were just perfect for each other. I love their talks. I love how they treat each other. Ohmygosh, I will never forget your childish display of strength!
I'm so glad that the twist didn't end up hurting these two in the end. All in all, I'm a very happy reader and I get to sleep now knowing that I got a nice, happy ending. I would love to have at least another chapter just to see what'll happen to them after the storm. View all 4 comments.

There seemed to be a lot to take and Cami unconsciously was caught in the middle. I enjoyed this new book by Lacey Weatherford. Last year, I had some major heartbreak with her Chasing Nikki series. Turns out, I actually liked Hunter much more than when I liked Chase. This cocky newcomer proved he was more than a pretty face.
Hmmm, I thought she was a little insensitive. Her naivete towards her friend was what caused her to land in a heap of bloody sheets. But in the end, she got what she deserved, so there. Knew it all before the end! Seriously, the author should cover her tracks better!! Btw, I enjoyed and liked the book: D Nice read "I think even inanimate objects were getting turned on by the intensity rolling off you two.
There are cars in the parking lot that are probably pregnant now. Nov 25, Arti rated it liked it Shelves: I'm just saying that because both Simon and Clay were tagged as nerds but Simon's like SO muh hotter and cooler , they were both in love with their best friends even though Simon got over it and Clay's just a crazy loser freak , their best friends both have red hair, their best friends both get the "bad boy" but Jace is MUCH better than Hunter Anyways, this was an okay First things first.

It wouldn't come up in a normal conversation about books, but it was nice book to read if you were bored. I really didn't expect Clay to be such a loser. And I didn't expect Hunter's secret to be what it was. I found Hunter a little bit pathetic. He wasn't "bad boy" enough for me. And I didn't really like Cami either cause she was just She wasn't like in the story but she wasn't out of it. So yeah, if you're bored and see this book at the library, you should read it, but I wouldn't buy it if I were you.

Jan 10, Ann Lou rated it really liked it. This book reminds me of cross my heart by katie klein and unlovable by sherry gammon. Parker, Seth and Hunter are undercover cops posing as seniors in high school. Let it be known that unlovable is my favorite of the three. Cross my heart comes second and this book ranks third.
But being the last doesn't mean it's bad. In fact, i also love this one. The swoon worthy hero, the smart and beautiful heroine, the excitement, suspense, romance. They are all in this book. I was looking for a light fun This book reminds me of cross my heart by katie klein and unlovable by sherry gammon. I was looking for a light fun read after all the angst I've been reading lately. This book gave me just that. Apr 06, Kathy Jo rated it it was ok. Ever finish reading a book and think "why in the world did you torture yourself by continuing to read it?!
The synopsis gives nothing away about what the story is really about. I wish I would've read more reviews before starting and finishing this book. There were so many things that were so wrong on so many levels! View all 8 comments. Oct 09, Jenny - TotallybookedBlog rated it really liked it.
