Love Me by Jillian Dodd
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Barnes & Noble
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.
Love me.Like, eventually.
You are never too old for teen angst....teen angst, drama, and Boonsfarm!
What can I say bout this series that I haven't already. At the start of every single book, I painstakingly turn from one page to the next with a kaleidoscope of emotions. I can usually sense the direction the story is headed, and it punches me right in the heart. LOOK AWAY! I can't! NO! Damn you Jillian! I need a drink!
The unpredictability that is Keatyn has even me being afraid to get too attached. First Cush, then Dawson....I can't take it. Keatyn's determination to be a starter for Team Penis, has me hanging on the edge. I'm starting to think that my heart is bipolar (I'm starting to think Keatyn's vagina is too).
It still impresses me to no end how Jillian Dodd has developed Love Me and it's predecessors in a way that despite what you want, she gives you what you need!
At first, I was heartbroken by Dawson in this book. Dammit Jillian, how could you. But if I'm going to be honest here, Dawson has always been Dawson and I wasn't surprised by certain events. I just...I just...I just, you know. I loved my Dawson and love is blind. However, I needed these things to happen in order for me to give Aiden a chance. Don't get me wrong, I am far from sporting my Team Aiden shirt, but because he has never been who I wanted, I've never really given him a chance. Okay! Okay! So I like Aiden now. Moving on....
However, I'm not ready to give up on Dawson just yet. He showed a lot of growth, and hell if he didn't redeem himself with a certain "moment" at the end.
Cooper?? Well...I'm not really sure how I feel about him. He seemed somewhat a random fixture in Love Me, and I had a lot of indifference towards his character (Creeper? Maybe? Not so much? I'm so confused), but I feel that maybe his role will be better explained later in the series.
I didn't just switch teams after reading Love Me, I joined one that's not even in the same conference. One that I don't even think made the playoffs. I am OFFICIALLY without a doubt TEAM RILEY!
