Alexa Morgan lost her mother when she was two. At eighteen, her father and stepmother died when a devastating earthquake hit the Bay Area. Only one person has remained a constant in her life: Devin.
Devin has been Alexa’s best friend since childhood. The two are inseparable—or they were until Devin declared his love for her at sixteen. When Alexa can offer him only friendship in return, Devin retreats, brokenhearted.
Alexa, on the other hand, longs for Ethan, the boy next door. Four years older than her, and with an ever-changing roster of girlfriends, Ethan is everything Devin isn’t: wild, sensual, and unpredictable.
In the aftermath of the deadly earthquake, Ethan makes his move on Alexa, who reciprocates in a confused whirl of grief and desire. When Ethan leaves town the next day, Devin comes back into Alexa’s life, offering support and expecting nothing in return.
Alexa begins to see the advantages of Devin’s quiet, stable love. Can she get past the friendship hang-up while trying to forget bad boy Ethan? It’s a choice that will change her life forever.

I received Alexa, Crushed off NetGalley for an honest review. Thank you
I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the synopsis of Alexa, Crushed, I'm glad I gave it a chance. It was an enjoyable read.
Alexa, Crushed is a story following Alexa's life. The story starts when she is two years old and progresses throughout her childhood. The story starts off a bit slow but quickly takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions.
My only dislike of this book is the fact Alexa can even consider having sex a day after tragedy strikes. She was vulnerable and in a way taken advantage of.
Ethan, what the hell is going on with him and his creepy mother!!
Alexa, crushed is one of those books where everything goes slow and you're ready to give up, then all of a sudden BAM, your left saying what the hell!!
