Review: Crush by Tracy Wolff


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.

Favorite Lines:

“I may not be a vampire or a warlock, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to lie down and let ‘the menfolk’ make decisions about my life for me.”

*I didn’t keep track of any quotes besides that one because I got too focused on the story and forgot!*

My Opinion:

I can’t believe it!!!!!!!!!!! At first I didn’t know where this book was going to go but once I got into it, I saw the direction it was going and it was like ACOTAR all over again! Crush is the second book in Wolff’s Crave series. I recently got into the series about a month ago and was lucky that Crush was coming out soon after. Unfortunately for me, Wolff has left us all hanging and now I am dying to read the next book because I really need some closure about certain situations (if you read the book, you’ll find out).

Without spoiling anything, I am upset that Wolff wrote such a cute love story in the first book and due to certain situations in this book, we hardly see any Grace and Jaxon together. For my little romantic craving heart, this just simply won’t do.

We finally get to see Hudson after just hearing about him and what he was like from the last book considering he was/is dead. I feel like that was an interesting addition and I almost wonder if Wolff planned it all along or if after she finished the first book, she decided to take the story in a new direction. It almost seemed set up perfectly in the first book just to take a 180 this book. If it is anything like ACOTAR, there better be a good reason that we are moving in this direction.

Wolff did an amazing job writing this story and I am beyond excited to read the next book in the series…too bad it doesn’t come out until March. I’ll just have to wait and suffer until then. As a total side note, can we just talk about how aesthetic this cover is.


Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Despite the lack of romance, I might have enjoyed this book more than the first on in the series due to the creative storyline. I am literally dying to read the next book in the series and if you read this series as well, you will see why. Until next time, happy reading!
