Nicole Williams reside en Spokane, Washington, y ésta es su primera incursión en el mundo de la literatura juvenil. De pequeña creció leyendo clásicos como Mujercitas y Orgullo y prejuicio y hoy sus autores favoritos son Suzanne Collins, Stephenie Meyer y Sarah Dessen, entre otros.
En mayo de 2013, la editorial Montena se lanzaba a publicar el primer libro la saga "Crash" de Nicole Williams, titulado en España "El lado explosivo de Jude". En esta novela surge la difícil relación entre Lucy y Jude, un romance que se complicará cada vez más con cada novela.
En junio salía el 2º y en julio el 3º, la editorial se ha portado ¡menos mal que van poco a poco quitando la costumbre de tenernos un año esperando!
He leído los tres libros y me han encantado, quizás el que más flojea es el segundo, aunque he de decir que tanto en el 2º como en el 3º me desesperé bastante con la pareja ¡están todo el día discutiendo y a veces por bobadas! pero engancha de principio a fin, todos y cada uno de ellos los he leído en una noche.
Para mí, los dos primeros son YA pero el tercero se adentra, sin lugar a dudas, en New Adult.
Las portadas de España me parecen horrorosas, de verdad, pero bueno lo importante es el interior, como se suele decir.
Sin lugar a dudas os la recomiendo, y espero que traigan más novelas de Nicole.
Lucy ha oído decir esa frase incontables veces, pero hasta ahora nunca había pensado que podía llegar a comprenderla tan bien. En realidad, desde el día que conoció a Jude navega por aguas turbulentas, incapaz de aclararse y descifrar qué siente. Entre toda la confusión, algo le parece evidente: Jude no es un chico adecuado para ella. Cínico, inaccesible, descarado hasta decir basta... En definitiva, el clásico tipo malo que parece predestinado a romperle el corazón a cualquiera que sucumba a sus encantos.
Y, sin embargo, Jude ejerce una extraña atracción sobre ella. Una atracción de la que parece imposible escapar...

(Eden Triology · 1)
College sophomore Bryn Dawson is a self-proclaimed poster child for normal. However, the day William Hayward enters her life, normalcy is the last thing Bryn will be able to count on if she wants to be with him. Too mysterious and appealing to be good for a girl, Bryn feels drawn to him in a way that seems out of her control—as if fate is orchestrating it.
Despite every red flag and warning siren going off in her head telling her not to, Bryn falls hard for William, knowing he’s categorically different from anyone she’s ever met. She never imagined how right she was. When William takes her deeper into the rabbit hole of his world, Bryn must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to be with him, knowing no matter what, fate always finds a way to have the last laugh.
Spinning a new twist on star-crossed lovers, Eternal Eden will put Bryn through a gauntlet of turmoil, challenging her to find the power within herself to become the heroine in her own story.
(Lost and found · 1)
There’s complicated. And there’s Rowen Sterling.
After numbing pain for the past five years with boys, alcohol, and all-around apathy, she finds herself on a Greyhound bus to nowhere Montana the summer after she graduates high school. Her mom agreed to front the bill to Rowen’s dream art school only if Rowen proves she can work hard and stay out of trouble at Willow Springs Ranch. Cooking breakfast at the crack of dawn for a couple dozen ranch hands and mucking out horse stalls are the last things in the world Rowen wants to spend her summer doing.
Until Jesse Walker saunters into her life wearing a pair of painted-on jeans, a cowboy hat, and a grin that makes something in her chest she’d thought was frozen go boom-boom. Jesse’s like no one else, and certainly nothing like her. He’s the bright and shiny to her dark and jaded.
Rowen knows there’s no happily-ever-after for the golden boy and the rebel girl—happily-right-now is a stretch—so she tries to forget and ignore the boy who makes her feel things she’s not sure she’s ready to feel. But the more she pushes him away, the closer he seems to get. The more she convinces herself she doesn’t care, the harder she falls.
When her dark secrets refuse to stay locked behind the walls she’s kept up for years, Rowen realizes it’s not just everyone else she needs to be honest with. It’s herself.
One small town girl with a bright future.
One smokejumper with a dark past.
One summer that will forever change them both.
They’re going . . .
Up In Flames.
Elle’s life couldn’t possibly get any more small town than it already is. She was raised in the same home as the two generations before her were, her family owns the iconic downtown cafe, and she’s been dating the pastor’s son since she was allowed to go on her first date at sixteen.
Cole’s life couldn’t possibly get any larger. He’s tried. Roaming from town to town for the past three summers as a smokejumper, Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots. The only thing he avoids more than that is settling down with one woman, especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to save.
Elle Montgomery’s life is going one way. And Cole Carson’s is going the opposite. There’s no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington.
But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she’s already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms.
As the summer heats up, and tensions between Elle and Cole run high, he begins to realize there’s more he’s attracted to than Elle’s body, and she discovers there’s a lot more to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eye.
UP IN FLAMES is a New Adult Romance intended for mature readers due to steamy content and saucy language.
(The Patrick Chronicles · 1)
Patrick Hayward’s never been a one woman type of guy, that’s why he never dates just one. However, still reeling the loss of the one woman he took a chance on falling in love with to his older brother, Patrick is enrolled—sequestered, if you asked him—at Stanford in hopes of breaking him out of his months long, beard growing, rootbeer chugging, hygiene impaired, funk.
Something breaks when a certain Emma Scarlett storms into his life his first week on campus as he’s suntanning and cat calling when he should be in class. Emma sees through his act and calls him out like she’s seen his kind a million times before, but Patrick knows he isn’t one of a million, he’s one in a million.
Intrigued by this fascinating creature that is ignorant to his charm, surrounded by four older brothers who look at Patrick like he’s a bug they could squish, and dating the same guy for the past six years who gives new meaning to the term territorial boyfriend, Patrick gravitates to her, knowing she’s everything he shouldn’t fall for.
So, of course, he can’t help himself.
Forcing the stars to realign and slapping fate in the face, Patrick takes matters into his own hands and finds a way to wrangle his way into Emma’s life at every chance. As Emma begins to open up to him, he’s about to discover she’s thwarted by as many secrets as he is.
But hers are the kind that make you want to keep your light on at night.
Patrick never could have imagined a more unhappy ever after for himself than the one he's about to face.
