I have seen books by Tijan all over the place, but Crew is the first book I’ve read by her. I am a fan of dark romance, but this is the first time I’ve read young adult dark romance. It was interesting. The darker element definitely added something to the book, and I felt like it added maturity to this book, that a lot of YA romance books don’t have. I liked the characters, but they were all clearly damaged. While the whole crew system is explained very well, I still didn’t quite get it. I also didn’t quite get why Cross was in love with Bren. This a book that might have benefited from a dual POV. It also would have helped with the fact that Cross is still very much a mystery to me.
There was a lot of violence in this book, but I also enjoyed that Bren as a badass. The overall story as good and I think honestly Race was the most interesting character in the books. While this book was interesting and well written, I think I’d rather read adult books in this genre.
