They wanted forever… but sometimes forever’s not that easy.
Ellen has loved Jagger since she was five and he was seven when they kissed through the chain link fence at school. She’s had their wedding planned since she was twelve and is ready for a happily ever after with him, but life just isn’t that neat and tidy.
Although they lost contact over the years, which broke her heart, during Jag’s senior year in high school, sophomore Ellen catches his eye once again and their friendship is back on. When things between them gradually develop into something more, Ellen wants to give herself completely to Jag, but he’s not so sure he wants to risk their relationship in taking things to the next level.
When Jag is drafted to the Dodgers as the hot, new pitcher of the team, Ellen decides to go with him, transferring colleges and leaving her friends and family behind. But things get more and more complicated when busy schedules, a slimy agent and a supermodel disrupt their lives, which makes Ellen question whether they’ll ever get their perfect forever.
This is the first book of the True Love Trilogy.
Discovering us was the first boxed set I bought for my Kindle. At first I was hella wary about getting it because, I’m going to be for realz, I didn’t know how boxed sets would work on my Kindle. Alas, my finger didn’t hesitate over the ‘Purchase’ button. A week later and I’m happy to say that I have a NEW FAV. SERIES YA’LL.
This is one of those high school romances. (It’s cool, things are pretty G-rated, that is… until the middle of the book.) *wink wink*
It took me a moment to get into the book, mainly because I wasn’t sure where in the heck it was going. But OH, when I fell in love with Jagger Jensen. OMG. Guys. OMG. I fell hard.
And OF COURSE, since he’s a professional baseball player I fell for him. (i will be seeing him in my dreams tonight.) Mm. Hm.
This story gives us the life of Jagger and El as high school sweethearts to young adults. There’s a BUTT LOAD of jealousy, girl and boy drama, trust issues, and lies. (there’s also this broad I still want to jack slap, but we won’t get into that right now.)
El- I HEART her to the moon and back. She was totally relatable and I love how the author brought us her story WAYY back when she was in high school to her present life as a young adult at the age of, eh, 25 give or take some years.
Jag- Still have to fan myself when I think about this sexy eye candy. Just… (give me a moment to breath) He is a total swoon fest and, did I mention the awesome fact that he is a pro BASEBALL PLAYER?? (Oh, only about 100 times Keionda, Jeesh.)
She is a ride or die best friend and I SO want to have one of her. (especially since i don’t have any BFFS in real life. i know. i know. So sad.)
It’s obvious how Jag feels about El, and I LURVE the fact that he was always straight up with El about his feelings for her. (Because, we all know, sometimes we hold things in that we don’t want others to know) But that was SO NOT the case with sexy Mr. Jag Jensen.
There aren’t many things I didn’t like in this book BUT for the sake of this review, I’d say I didn’t like all of the times Jag allowed a messy female to bamboozle him so she could get in between him and El. (some of those times i was just like, really? YO, REALLY???
Like, how you no see through her fakeness?
OMG. Like, you guys I can’t recommend this book to you guys enough! If you’re looking for swoon, HOT AND STEAMY MOMENTS, (believe me, there’s a TON of those), relatable characters, and a fabtastical time, this is definitely the book for you.
Over To You:
Do YOU like jealousy in a guy? Also, does an evil grin flash across your face when it happens? What about instalove? Do you despise it like me? (because believe me, I DREAD it when i see it in a book)
