Review: Blue Crush By Jules Barnard

In the Blue Series, love in Lake Tahoe means looking beneath the surface.

"Blue Crush is an addictive romance with a touch of suspense . . ." -- Tobi Helton, Forget the Housework, I'm Reading

Genevieve Tierney moves to Lake Tahoe after college, determined to go it alone after being betrayed by her boyfriend. Working at a casino and avoiding cheating jerks seems like a good plan, until she meets the one guy tempting enough to drag her back down.

Lewis Sallee is six and a half feet of perfectly sculpted mountain man who threatens Gen’s play-it-safe approach and awakens a sex drive she never knew she had. Although Lewis is in a complicated relationship with one of the most beautiful women Gen has ever seen, she can’t seem to control her attraction to him.

To boost her confidence, Gen steps out of her comfort zone and signs up for the Alpine Mudder, a gritty endurance race. But as she prepares for the biggest physical challenge of her life, her emotional strength is pushed to its limits after she accepts Lewis’s help in training. He tests her willpower and has her fighting her body’s response to him—with her mind and heart not far behind.

Blue Crush is the 2nd book in the Blue Series. Each book in the Blue Series is a standalone and does not need to be read in order, but characters pop up again so it's fun to read them sequentially.

Blue Crush is the second book in the Blue series and while it can be read as a standalone, I do plan on going back to read the first book.  Yeah I know I didn’t follow my own rule about reading the previous books in a series but luckily I don’t think I missed out by skipping book one.

I will admit it did take me longer than I would have hoped to get into this book.  I don’t know if I had a problem connecting with Gen or if it was Lewis but I wasn’t sure what to think when I first started it.  Now like I said in the paragraph before this one I don’t think I missed out by missing book one, I think I just had a hard time becoming involved in the book if that makes sense.

I had some issues with Lewis but slowly I began to like him more and more, same with Gen.  Don’t even get me started on Mira, I am just not going to go there.  I will say this though, Lewis knows how to tell a woman that he loves her, I actually think a piece of my heart belonged to him in that moment.

Overall Blue Crush was a pretty good read for me.  There is a book three that I will be looking forward to checking out when it is released, after I go back and read book one of course.  I was able to read Blue Crush in a day and once I got into it I didn’t want to put it down.  I think if you are a fan of New Adult Romances then you will enjoy this one.
