Book Review: Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith

Kiss Crush Collide
By Christina Meredith 
Release Date: December 27, 2012
Summary: Kiss 
What Leah did—only she really shouldn’t have—one hot night at a country club party. 

What Leah has—only she really shouldn’t have—on the guy with the green eyes, the guy who is not her perfect boyfriend, the guy who does not fit in her picture-perfect life, the guy her sisters will only mock and her mother will never approve of. Not in a million years. 

What happens when everything you always thought you wanted—having cool friends, being class valedictorian and homecoming queen—runs smack into everything it turns out you really do want. 

Kiss. Crush. Collide. 
For Leah and Porter, summer is only the beginning.

Review: I really really really wanted to enjoy this one, I mean, just look at the cover! But I should have known I wouldn't enjoy it based on all of the negative reviews. This book held sooooo much potential, but the story just fell flat with dull characters and too much description. 

As the main character, I was really not a big fan of Leah. She's always all "oh I don't have to try for anything and I hate it." I hate people who always get what they want without trying at all, so why would I want to read about one? She complain SO much about how her mom wants her to be like her sisters and she hates her boyfriend. It just got annoying after reading about for 300 pages. 

The other part of the book that didn't work was how everything was written as a description. There wasn't really any action and we just saw how Leah felt when things were going on. I didn't even know what was really happening because all she talked about was how she was feeling. And even then, the feelings seemed to happen wayyyy too fast. It's like two second after she met Porter, she was crazy about him. I really don't like it when there's no build up or at least hesitation to relationships. 

So overall this book really did nothing for me. It was a quick read, but I couldn't connect with the characters and I found myself skimming pages because I didn't want to read so much description about what was going on. I'm just so sad I didn't like this book! I guess you really can't judge a book by its cover...


  1. Oh, that's so sad! I just checked out this book from the library, and it looked so good! I'll probably still read it though!

  2. I agree with you! I eagerly waited to read this book because it seems really good but I was so disappointed! I can't believe how this book turns out to be.
    It's different from what it sounds with the blurb and it's kind of sad.
    Great review though. ;)

  3. I'm SO glad I decided not to buy this book, for with each passing day since the release more and more "negative" review pop up all over the bloggerverse. Thanks for sharing your opinion. Thoughtful and clear. Great review-voice.
    _yay_ @ BookthatThing!
