Title: To Love Jason Thorn
Author: Ella Maise
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 was a sweet romantic book. It left me with a happy feeling inside.
Olive fell in love with Jason when she was six (almost 7) and asked him to marry her. After Jason broke her young heart once, she made herself forget him for years. Currently, an adult she is writer finishing college and her first book has become an overnight success. Hollywood is interested in buying the rights to make the movie and Olive is beyond excited and scared at the same time. The last thing she was expecting on her first meeting with the executives is to encounter her first love.
Jason Thorn is a young famous actor but his personal relationships are a mess. His PR company is going nuts trying to save his career. When Jason finds out that his next movie project is based on a book written by his childhood friend, he wants in. He'll do anything to make Olive's book a success. Even reigning in his escapades. One disturbing event is that Olive is not a child anymore and he can't seem to look away from her.
As a lover of romance, this novel had everything I wanted to read about. I love stories that involve childhood friendships maturing into adult love. Olive was a very cool character. She was having her dreams come true including the love of the man she never thought she would meet again.
I was so happy with Jason's character evolution. He was no dummy and figured it out real soon what a gem he had in his hands.
As secondary characters Lucy and Jameson were both awesome!
There was one little twist I didn't see coming that made me love Jason even more.
