eBook Review: Double Clutch by Liz Reinhardt

Goodreads: What happens when you fall for the perfect one day?

Brenna Blixen spent her freshman year homeschooling in Denmark; now that she's back in the States, she's determined to make her sophomore 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 with his heart-wrenching smile and intelligent, thoughtful focus.

But 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 more complex than Brenna is willing to deal with. 

Complicating the matter is the fact that Saxon and Jake were once best friends and are now arch-enemies...and the more Brenna finds out about their connection to each other, the more intrigued and worried she becomes.

Between keeping the peace with her lovingly over-protective parents, designing t-shirts for her high school's rising punk band, keeping up her grades in classes split between academic and technical high school, and running the track like a maniac, Brenna has enough to worry about with out juggling two guys who make her heart thud and drive her crazy all at once. 

She has to make a choice, but how is she supposed to do that when giving her heart to one of them might mean breaking the other's?

This is an amazing young adult romance read! I found it extremely easy to read and couldn't stop turning the pages. Liz really knows how to draw you in and allow you to become apart of the characters. 

Brenna Blixen is a typical teenage girl of fifteen. She was living in Denmark with her mother and step-father for a year and then moved back to America. She was home-schooled in Denmark; so had to restart school and became the new girl, even though she only missed a year. Brenna hooks up with her best friend again and they instantly start where they left off. 

Brenna meets a boy in her government class, Saxon. He's a typical bad boy with brains and takes an instant wanting of Brenna. Brenna is going to Technical School in the afternoons to study graphic design and she meets another boy, Jake in her class. Jake appears to be the shy innocent boy, but nothing is as it appears. They all have baggage! 

Brenna finds herself in the biggest love triangle in history. Both boys fight for her attention, Saxon with all the brains, looks and attitude; while Jake has the looks and smarts. Brenna doesn't know who to take to. Brenna seems to think Jake needs her more than Saxon and Saxon seems to give too much attitude and just assumes Brenna will fall for him. Who will win Brenna's heart in the end? Will she acknowledge her deep feelings or just take what's on the surface? 

This book took me back to my teenage years and the young love that you discover in high school. All the experimenting and new feelings, the love you think you find, but don't really know what it is. The emotions that are in here is so very real, that you feel them all over again. I am so excited that this will be a series and can't wait for Junk Miles. This is a must read for all young adult romance fans, awesome and addictive.
