Les Invisibles de la Rpublique jCLICK HERE TO READ MORE REVIEWS AT READING EATING AND DREAMING I WAS BLAIR WALDORFDouble Clutch is a realistic young adult romance about a girl who is caught between two guys I m a hard critic when it comes to love triangles because I hate it when you have A the obvious right choice and B the obvious wrong choice Golly GeeWho should I pick Come on there s no fun in that Well Reinhardt got it right with Double Clutch There are two guys in this story Both of them have their flaws and they both have their charm There was no obvious right choice for me and that s what I loved about this novel Reinhardt kept things realistic relatable and current in her exciting and fun debut novel I think Double Clutch laid a sturdy fou 4 12 stars What happens when you fall in love with the perfect guy twice in one day I know what you re thinking Another YA Love triangle Well yes and no It is a love triangle But not really not your normal one On one hand the 2 guys are polar opposites which is a given for a triangle But on the other they are actually uite the same Meet Brenna Blixen Liz mentioned that she had bangs and mentions converse a lot I auto thought of this photo so she became Demi Lovato in my head Brenna is 15 going on 16 and in most ways wayyyyy mature than she should be at that age Brenna and her mother and Stepdad Fa haveust moved back to the US after a year abroad in Denmark Brenna has decided that she is going to do timeshare which is half a day at normal high school and half a day at the tech school so she can focus on her love of art and graphic design The thing I liked most about Bren is that she was real She wasn t an annoying whingy bitch stuck in the middle of a love triangle where you want to throw things at her every 2 seconds eg Keira from Thoughtless First day of High school she runs into Saxon Maclean HEELLLOO SAXON BANG Instant attraction Funny Flanter flirty banter uick comebacks photographic memory insanely smart full of badassness charismatic hard to breathe around type of guy that could get you pregnant Why I Believed just by kissing you Basically everything your mother ever warns you about After her half day at high school it s off to Tech and then BANG HEEEELLLLLLLOOOOOOO JAKE KELLY Jake is dyslexic hence why he is at the tech But he is Insanely gorgeous funny as hell great with the flanter smart but shy a gentlemen caring and vulnerable BUT Turns out to be a reformed BAD BOY We then enter into theourney of Saxon vying for Blix s attention Jake falling madly in love with her and not knowing how to handle it with his past Brenna trying to be a teenager in love for the first time and handle everything else that society expects her to do As well as her Mum Throw into the mix that Jake and Saxon actually used to be best friends but Jake now hates Saxon with everything he has Meanwhile Saxon is holding onto a dark secret about Jake that he shares with Blix but makes her keep secret PhewLiz Reinhardt has done an excellent ob with keep secret PhewLiz Reinhardt has done an excellent ob with book Honestly it was ust the right amount of everything No betrayal nor lies so bad it couldn t be forgiven The right amount of awkwardness and gushing transporting you back to a teenager those awkward first kisses touches heavy petting It really was hard to pick a guy You fell head over heels for both of them view spoiler Especially when Saxon gave her the book for Her Birthday And The and the sigh spoiler Ahhhh thats the sound of me relishing over this ah mazing book I can t say that there is ONE character or scene that kept this book together Because lets admit that that usually happens in novels We love one scene or something in the book and it keeps us going in the end And when you ve finished reading something felt off so you give it a 3 or 4 stars Umm won t happen here Everything comb One of the things I love most about books and reading is the fact that they re so subjective Each person brings to their reading experience something personal and uniue and leaves with a slightly different interpretation Add to this individual tastes and preferences and the field of opinion gets fascinatingly broad For every person who loves fantasy there is someone who prefers contemporary For every person who thinks the love interest is mysterious and enticing there s someone who thinks she s a swaggering arse hat And for those of my friends who adored 45 Stars Double Clutch takes a commonly used topic such as a love triangle and swings it from the ordinary into the extraordinary I was entranced by the natural feel of the dialogue and the realistic ease of the characters interactions I certainly had a hard time putting this book down I absolutely love Brenna and felt she was the perfect portrayal of a teenaged girl in high school She s smart strong and has a refreshingly healthy relationship with her mother She s mature but to a believable extent that I feel a lot of YA books tend to lack She has self respect and shows concern for her grades but becomes conflicted when she meets two amazing boys on the very same daySaxon is your typical bad boy crude arrogant sexy and so alluring that Brenna finds it difficult to breathe normally in his presence He s bad news but there s some definite sweetness beneath his rough persona Jake is gorgeous kind hearted caring and protective without being possessive He s incredibly vulnerable and is also hiding a mysterious past These two heroes could not be different but they re both vying for the attention of Brenna Reinhardt really knows how to paint a picture with words thos. What happens when you fall in love with the perfect guytwicein one dayBrenna Blixen spent her freshman year homeschooling in Denmark; now that she's back in the States she's determined to make her sopho year unforgettable And by unforgettable she imagined awesome classes fun friendships and maybe a little romance What she got was a whole lot of romance and all at once The same day that dark brooding Saxon Maclean charmed her with his killer good looks and whip smart wit Jake Kelly stole her breath away wit.
CHARACTERS Ê NARRATIVEYOGACLUB.CO.UK ↠ Liz ReinhardtEtting This year I was certainly heartened by instances such as Flat Out Love but I am still burned by previous wrist slitting catastrophes Thankfully Double Clut Holy freaking CROW I m completely torn I love Jake and Saxon There must be another book on the way because this story is sooo not over Loved it A must read Trust meUPDATE Okay here is my review sort of I won t go into details since other reviewers have but this book was fabulous I bought it and thought I d read a little here and there while I took writing breaks but that didn t happen I ended up getting so sucked in I spent the day reading Double Clutch I have NEVER read a love triangle where I didn t have a team I was on by the end of book but this one managed to make me love both Jake and Saxon They both have the bad boy thing going for them they both are incredibly hot and they both want the same girl It s crazy good I can t wait for the next one You must read it Gosh this book is so freaking cute I can t even stand it We all can use a little romance now and then but not many contemporary YA love stories stand out as anything particularly memorable which is why I normally prefer to see them cloaked among werewolves and angels and other such distractionsBrenna Blixen doesn t need supernatural beings to keep our attention however This smart and focused heroine has plenty of drama in her life what with starting all over again at her school after being abroad for a year She s also attracted to two very different boys the arrogant too sexy for his own good Saxon and the hot but shy Jake Both boys pursue Brenna with enjoyable focus and as things heat up in the two different relationships she discovers that everyone s hiding secretsand the two boys even have a complicated history of their ownI didn t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did but it uickly became one of my favorite guilty pleasures Love triangles are rarely well done but it s easy to see why Brenna likes both boys in different ways and why they like her too She s smart mouthed but kind responsible but spontaneous and ust seems like an all around nice girl who d be fun to hang out with I liked that even though the story is very much centered on the romance Brenna has a balanced life and cares about things other than ust boys Her parents and friends are great she thinks about school and about her future and she doesn t allow herself to be walked all over EverI love that Brenna goes on blessedly normal dates sneaks her boyfriend into her room and tries to be a good person in handling her attraction to these guys without being a boring old goody goody One of the things debut author Liz Reinhardt deserves big credit for is that this is probably the most explicit and realistic depictions of teen sexuality I ve ever read It s also HOT And fun And the characters actually talk about sex which is fantastic The two boys are also mouth wateringly adorable They re both seriously cute Saxon with his careless demeanor and how he s attuned to Brenna s personality and Jake with his sweet uncertainty and absolute devotion I almost hate to say this but the name whispers Tucker Avery floated into my head than once Neither boy is even close to perfect though which makes for some uncomfortable moments and history but also some fairly realistic ones including some wince inducing bluntness from Saxon in particular
liked that aside from a number of hot and make out scenes there is also unexpected depth and emotion in this story These characters are layered and feel very real this book pushed a number of buttons for me since it makes me terribly sad to hear about kids who don t have enough to eat as well as incredibly angry when I hear of anyone being mocked for their lack of education or intelligence If there s any room for improvement I d say that Brenna might be a little too adult sometimes in her thinking and her actions even though I really enjoyed not wanting to smack the heroine for a change Jake s past is also perhaps explained away a little too simplistically and there are a lot of references to films that might be considered a bit dated when they re all taken together None of this really bothered me all that much however as the narrative voice is so fresh and funny and thoroughly winning It ust worked for me as a YA romance in a way that few others have ever done The seuel Junk Miles wasn t uite as successful for me but this first installment was one that I really enjoyedThe next time you re in the mood to wriggle your toes over some adorable dates or swoon over some cute guys consider giving Double Clutch a try I think most fans of contemporary YA romance will fall in love with it in a big wayAbout the Book Double Clutch is available for ereaders for ust 499 for Kindle or as a paperback from That s right this is a self published novel and aside from a couple of minor typos it s actually polished than many traditionally published books on the market Although I do support indie authors I rarely respond to indie review reuests these days since I receive so many What caught my attention about Liz s note however was her warm and personalized approach her reference of the Oxford comma in her author profile and my sneaking suspicion that Brenna s name was a nod to the writer Karen Blixen aka Isak Dinesen I was Brenna s name was a nod to the writer Karen Blixen aka Isak Dinesen I was about that reference and I was right to give this book a chance I hope that if You Re A Romance re a romance you will too This review also appears in The Midnight Garden A review copy was provided by the author.

E little flirty nervous uncertain what the other is thinking moments transported me back to my teen years and made me giddy The level of steam definitely turns this into a mature read with generous descriptions that provided endless ear to ear grins This story presents the ultimate love triangle without taking the betrayal and lies to an unforgivable level It s executed gracefully and although its purpose forms the plot it also poses a uestion When deciding on love is the obvious sensible least threatening choice always the right one Although Brenna does choose one boy over the other in this story the author leaves her option for the other intriguingly open I cannot wait to see how this triangle develops in the books ahead Book Stats GenreCategory YA Mature Steam Caliber ModerateVery sexy Romance Love triangle Characters Believable life like lovable Plot Two boys struggle for the love of one girl Writing Engaging addictive fluid POV 1st Person Heroine Cliffhanger Mild Story left open Next Installment Follow up What a fantastic book I wouldn t have thought that a YA book about a pretty much drama free love triangle would pack such a punch but it absolutely does Brenna is new to town and on her first day at school she meeds moody bad boy Saxon She feels an instant connection to him but is disappointed to see him with a girl hanging off him talking about their date that night Later that day she meets the boy from the wrong side of the tracks Jake Also drawn to him Jake immediately puts her at ease and they fall into an easy relationship But as things progress with him she discovers that the two boys in her life share a troubled past and Saxon Home to Cedarwood just refu Do you think it s possible that one person the right person can make you better know matter what your past was like I believe it can happen and Double Clutch is a great example of exactly thatBrenna Blixen is the new girl in town but it doesn t take long before a guyor two are competing for her heart Brenn is a great character totally knows how to handle her own knows what she wants and she ll be damned before anyone tells her otherwise I respect that in a character She also has uite the delimma since she s attracted to two very appealing boysLets meet the boys Jake Kelly has a shady past but he s open and honest with Brenn He s sweet and kind He s good for her and she s good for him MrRight SafeHis rivial Former best friend Saxon Maclean Full of issues and sarcasm tough and rough makes toxic intoxication and would put a snake charmer to shameBut these boys have there own sordid history which makes it harder for Brenna since she feels like she s in the middle She cares for both guys ultimately picks one but lying about how she feels about the other This is story of who you should be with and who your scared to want to be with It s a story about love Complicatedmessyreal exactly what love is suppose to look and feel like when your new and young At first I struggled with this book in the beginning but as it started to unfold it was pretty hard to not fall for these characters I had a really hard time picking which guy to root for since they are both really really great guysJake has a lot of smooth swoon worty moves and the things that he and Brenn explore was tasteful and sexy But then there s Saxon who is totally my kind of guy Funny witty a total bad boy and definitely earned a few warm smirks along the way But it s when he finally shows his true colors that really made my heart go out to him It means coming from him somehow which makes it bittersweetLiz Reinhardt does a really greatob of writing a realistic and convincing book filled with angst ealousy and the complexity of young love Say what you want about love triangles but when done right it could be one of the most alluring elements in literature Liz did it right She nailed that flavor of being confused and conflicted I also liked that my affections weren t so conflicted I also liked that my affections weren t so placed These boys both come with emotional baggage but they are both ust as genuine when it comes to how they feel for Brenn It reminded me of when I was young and in love for the first time The late night phone calls going to the movies introducing you to friends and then there s the physical part and how explosive it feels for the first time with someone you actually care about Due to some of those heated scenes I think this book is for the mature reader It s not overly graphic but it might make some uncomfortable so be warnedI also really liked that I had to guess which guy was the real deal since they would play off versions of one another to Brenn and it was tough to figure out what story was the truth It also has a neat little twist in the end nothing overly heavy but enough to tangle things up even in later booksAll in all I really enjoyed myself with this one It took me back to a time and place I haven t remembered in a long time First love is a powerful emotion and when your attracted and scared to want something else it makes it even crazy especially when that person has so much potential and yet you seem to be the only one who knows it It s uite the intriguing situation and I m really looking forward to seeing how things play out for Brenna Jake and Saxon in the next book Good stuffSpecial thanks to Liz for
me the opportunity to read and review your There s a seuel right Every time I decide to delve into self published shaky territory I get worried My experience in this field is uite limited and truly I am not sure I feel like actually H his heart wrenching smile and intelligent thoughtful focusBut Saxon is a proud player who makes it clear that he doesn't know why he can't get Brenna off of his mind and out of his system and Jake's sweet and humble attitude hides a secret past life that might be darker and complex than Brenna's willing to handle Complicating the matter is the fact that Saxon and Jake were once best friends and are now arch enemiesand the Brenna finds out about their connection to each other the intrigued and worried she.GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ AND REVIEW YOUR
