Jason Thorn… My brother’s childhood friend.
Oh, how stupidly in love with that boy I was. He was the first boy that made me blush, my first official crush. Sounds beautiful so far, right? That excitement that bubbles up inside you, those famous butterflies you feel for the very first time—he was the reason for them all. But, you only get to live in that fairytale world until they crush your hopes and dreams and then stomp on your heart for good measure. And boy did he crush my little heart into pieces.
After the stomping part he became the boy I did my best to stay away from—and let me tell you, it was pretty hard to do when he slept in the room right across from mine.
When tragedy struck his family and they moved away, I was ready to forget he ever existed.
Now he is a movie star, the one who makes women of all ages go into a screaming frenzy, the one who makes everyone swoon with that dimpled smile of his. Do you think that’s dreamy? I certainly don’t think so. How about me coming face to face with him? Nope still not dreamy. Not when I can’t even manage to look him in the eye.
Me? I’m Olive, a new writer. Actually, I’m THE writer of the book that inspired the movie he is about to star in on the big screen. As of late, I am also referred to as the oh-so-very-lucky girl who is about to become the wife of Jason Thorn.
Maybe you’re thinking yet again that this is all so dreamy? Nope, nothing dreamy going on here. Not even close.
To Love Jason Thorn is a full-length standalone, which also contains some pretty hot and descriptive sex scenes. *winks*
This story was just a bucket of warm & fuzzies. And though I’m not a warm & fuzzies type of gal, I found that I couldn’t resist the happy feels that came with reading this book. Matter of fact, I devoured this book TWICE in one(ish) sitting, back-to-back.
This has a friends-to-lovers, AND a celebrity romance all mixed into one. Both of which are my guilty pleasure romance tropes. This story also has a slow burn romance, but without all the long drawn out angst. (Which I LOVED, BTW.)
Overall, the plot and characters were perfectly written; this story was solid, and well-balanced. The only negative thing I would say is that I felt that the “moment of reconciliation” in the story was a wee bit rushed, but I was able to overlook it due to the fact that as a whole, the story still flowed nicely.
I picked up this book on a whim, and I am so glad I did. This was entertaining, and enjoyable to read.
This is perfect for if you’re in the mood for a fluffy read, with great characters, and a pleasantly steamy romance.
I am so glad I now know what it means to love Jason Thorn.
4.5 Bright stars!
