Review: Crush by Tracy Wolff

Goodreads // Everything feels off—especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am. Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.

The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice. Maybe more than I’m able to give.

*This review is for the second book in the Crave series by Tracy Wolff, so if you haven’t read Crave yet, I wouldn’t recommend reading this review as it may spoil you.


After nearly reading Crave in a day and loving it all despite all its flaws, I had some really high expectations for Crush. And I wasn’t disappointed but I also didn’t get what I was expecting.

I really liked Crush, but it lacked the excitement that made me love the first book. The plot wasn’t my favorite aspect of this book, though I still enjoyed the quest and games. It just felt a bit predictable in some ways, and I never really thought any of the main characters would get seriously hurt.

At frst, I was afraid Hudson’s presence in the story would made me dislike it but he actually saved this book. Grace and Hudson’s banter and emotional connection were my favorite thing about this book. (And I totally predicted a couple of things right about him!)

Grace and Jaxon’s relationship felt off the whole book. Their friendship, romance, and just overall interaction that I loved in Crave wasn’t present. Jaxon turned out to be a little too obnoxious and obsessive for my taste in this book. He was too set in his ways, too overprotective of Grace… He didn’t think she could take care of herself. He annoyed me the whole book…

Overall, I still really enjoyed Crush. It was full of unexpected twists and turns and it’s turned into a really unique story! And I’m here for the romance. (At the time of posting this review I’ve already read Covet, but oh boy, Crush’s finale was insane! I was dying to read Covet!)
