Review and Giveaway: LOVE ME by JILLIAN DODD
Title: Love Me
Author: Jillian Dodd
Series: The Keatyn Chronicles #4
Release Date: 11th August 2013
Age Group: Mature Young Adult
My mom says that you can’t love someone until you learn to love yourself.
So even though Vincent is getting more and more scary.
Even though he’s doing a nationwide search for me.
I’m going to learn to love myself.
Well, I’m going to try.
Mostly, I want a boy to love me.
But which one?
Dawson - The gorgeous boy who made a mistake, but whose molten lava kisses and steaminess I can’t freaking resist.
Aiden - The God of all Hotties, who is practically infused with love potion. Who I thought liked me, but now says he wants to be my friend.
Brooklyn - The boy that first stole my heart. Who has always loved me. Well, until the whole cabana incident.
I mean, it was bad enough when there was sort of a love triangle, but now that I’m talking to B again, it’s like I’m in a love rectangle, or a rhombus, or something.
Oh, and did I mention Cooper Steele?
The new soccer coaching, health teaching, tattooed hunk?
Who Garrett sent to school to guard my body.
I mean, be my bodyguard.
But back to loving me.
I should forget about boys and worry about me.
Genre: ARC,romance,YA,just freaking awesome
So now Love Me is finished do I want to sob; sigh; scream; stamp my foot; rage at Jillian Dodd in an email or calmly close my kindle, take a breath and tell everyone how phenomenal the fourth book in the Keatyn Chronicles is??!
Love Me is the first of the series which I have not finished in one sitting, and this has nothing to do with the quality of the story or Jillian Dodd's writing.
I admit there are several of Keatyn's decisions near the beginning of the book which I disagree with and I may have growled at my Kindle occasionally, but despite this I felt that throughout the story Keatyn's emotions are maturing. Whilst she is in this period of development Love Me becomes a much more tangled web than its predecessors and for readers on any specific 'team' I can imagine the story was torture!
For me Love Me scored because Jillian Dodd found a place in the story for old characters like Damian, Grandma, Grandpa, Gracie (sob!), Garett and hell, we are scarily even reminded that Vincent is creeping around! Yet, I never feel that Jillian Dodd's books are overcrowded, even though her characters have big personalities and most like trouble!
Love Me showed The Keatyn Chronicles just keeps getting better and that Jillian Dodd has no plans to settle on a Moon Boy for her female protagonist just yet!
I thank Jillian Dodd for providing Love Me as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I will giveaway 1 ecopy of LOVE ME to a random commentator on this post . . so get talking!!!!
