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.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
When we saw the cover of To Love with Jason Thorn, we just knew we had to have this book!!!! It was a first book from Ella for us and we were excited to dig in when we got out early copy.
We got sucked in from the start. The past beautifully established their connection bit also broke our hearts a bit as it unfolded. Fast forward to present Olive is an author and Jason is a movie star, he is also the actor who will play in the movie adaptation of Olive’s very successful first book.
This story was a slow burn romance at first, while the connection between these two is undeniable, they take their time to reconnect as friends.
“Can I swoon? And maybe take him down with me so we could do some naughty things?”
We loved Olive, she is real and funny. She has her insecurities as she navigates through Hollywood.
Jason—Mr. Movie Star bad boy with a reputation that is starting to threaten his career is HOT and the little sister of his childhood best friend comes into the picture. She is temptation now—all grown up and sexy. Hard to resist and does he really want to?
“In all the ways it matter, I’m your first, Olive. Do you understand?”
This book has the perfect amount sweet and funny mixed in with some scorching hotness once the charters get down and dirty.
If you like Swoony Hollywood stories, definitely pick up this little gem. We definitely will be reading more from Ella
About Ella Maise
I’m an avid reader. Therefore, a big dreamer. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face, and of course sometimes making you crush on fictional characters. If I can manage to do even one of those things for a reader, I will be a happy writer.
I can’t even begin to describe how exciting it is to give life to new characters and fall for them. It’s a different kind of addiction.
I’m still searching for my own happy ending. Until that happens, I’ll live vicariously through my own characters.
