The Love Square by Jessica Calla

4 Stars

The Blurb:

Clare Davis hates everything about L.A. Well, almost everything…

Accustomed to a small town life in Nebraska, Clare is miserable in her new role as manager of an L.A. bookstore. She yearns to return to the simple life on her family’s farm. That is until she literally runs into up-and-coming movie star Dylan Barnes.

Dylan resents the Hollywood limelight. Awaiting the premiere of his first feature film, it would be nice to meet someone real—just not someone who rear-ends his BMW with her oversized truck. Dylan is instantly attracted to Clare and her Midwestern charm. And as he shows her the wonders of California, Clare can’t resist falling in love with the Golden State and its newest star.

From West Coast to East, friendship and love are equally complicated…

On the East Coast, Dylan’s childhood friend, Alex Popovich, loves his carefree life as a minor league ballplayer. He’s the man-whore of Brooklyn, playing the field in more ways than one. So when real feelings for his best friend erupt, Alex isn’t interested.

A gorgeous ballroom dancer-slash-office worker, Jenna Stecco wants her best friend, Alex, to take a leap from friends to more. Busy having one night stands, Alex is quick to let Jenna go, telling her it’s time to give up lost hopes and move on with life.

Complicated turns full on crazy with a tangled love square…

When Dylan returns to New York City, he meets up with Alex and is introduced to the stunning Jenna. Believing Clare is unavailable and Alex isn’t interested, Dylan and Jenna share a night of passion and embark on a long-distance relationship.

Everyone is thrown by this love square, as Dylan, Jenna, Alex, and Clare struggle with their feelings for each other. When Jenna reveals a secret that will change their lives, all hell breaks loose.

As the love square crumbles, the four friends must find a way to rebuild or risk losing love forever.

SPOILER ALERT!!

 

Sometimes you just want a sweet romance that makes you smile and this was perfect for that…. until Dylan met Jenna. Then the angst began, and I couldn’t take it…. so, I sneaked a peek at the end of the book. Seeing that it had an amazing happily ever after allowed me to continue through the book with ease. I went along for the ride and enjoyed it. The characters are real and alive. I want to be friends with Alex, Dylan, Clare & Jenna. Each one had their own distinct personality and voice.

You know from the very beginning who belongs together and know who you want to root for, but when Dylan and Jenna get together the chemistry between them surprises you. The passion is there, and you don’t know how everything can turn out peacefully.

Jenna unwrapped her arms from his neck to hand him the conditioner. As he squeezed it into his hand and started gently rubbing it into her hair, she embraced him again. She leaned back to rinse it out without letting go and sighed as he ran his hands through her hair to help.

“Do me?” he asked as he reached behind her for the shampoo.

“I did.”

He grinned, and she almost passed out right there in the shower. “I mean my hair.”

“Oh, so you joined me in here to actually get clean, not dirty.” Jenna let go of him and bent her head under the water to rinse more thoroughly

“Maybe we can do both.”

This book was an enjoyable, light summer read. It kept me interested, and there was more than one night that I wanted to stay up reading even though I already knew how it would turn out.
