Book Review: Crush - The Crush Saga


When Taylor Sparks moves from New York City to Big Bear Lake, California, her life is forever changed when she meets a hot guy with winter-blue eyes named Jesse. Their attraction is instant, the chemistry undeniable. But sadly, things aren't adding up. Taylor wonders what her 'crush' is hiding. When her new friend, Fred tells her his suspicions about Jesse being a paranormal creature, Taylor laughs. But when Fred turns up dead, she believes every warning he ever told her. 

Taylor is shocked to learn that Big Bear Lake isn't just glittering lakes, towering pines, and breathtaking mountains...there's more...way more than meets the eye. 

Will Taylor dive into a paranormal world she knows nothing about? To be with the one her heart can’t live without? 

My Review

This is the first book in a nine book series by Chrissy Peebles. The first book is 266 pages long.

Taylor Sparks has always been on edge when living in New York, but when her parents want a change of scenery, they go to live in Big Bear Lake, California. Taylor is very creative and artistic, so this new place shows nature at its greatest. Her dog, Max, is always leading Taylor into danger, but she is saved by the heroic and selfless hunk, Jesse. After Taylor's break-up with Sean, she needed a fresh start and she realizes that she is falling head-over-heels in love with Jesse. But, there are many secrets surrounding him and his family. Her friend, Fred, knows this secret, but didn't get to tell due to his impromptu death. Will Taylor see past Jesse's secrets and enter the world of supernatural or will she leave before her life has even began? How is Jesse tied to the supernatural world? What secrets lie at Big Bear Lake?

I loved this book! It was a great change from the same old vampire lore and myths. In this book, there are different bloodlines of vampires all having different abilities. I don't think that I've ever read a book that spoke of a vampire actually being birthed instead of created. Well done, Chrissy Peebles! I know this GREAT author has written many books and I even own quite a few of them. I highly recommend her books. I hope to read her second book to this series, because of what people have told me of this series. The only real problem I had was the fact that this was labeled as a werewolf novel as well as vampire, but there was only a tiny part the werewolves played. Not much was said about them. I was also kind of insulted by the fact that Chrissy Peebles wrote teen dialogue like she did. Teenagers aren't like that at all and if people think that... Lets just say they are very mistaken!
