My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I see a pattern starting for 2014. So far the books I've read have been amazing.

When you first start reading Love Show, you think, Well this is just another college romance. The player, the messed up girl. But it's not. The fact that not only did this author write an amazing love story, but she gave all her characters depth, makes for a great book. A look into gay relationships and domestic violence via the best friend. A good story line revolving around after school plans, this plot is just phenomenal. It's not just a weak love story. It's a strong, emotional tale. Yes, I laughed, and boy did I cry. I have to say this book was a lot more than I expected. I have a feeling that it's going to go over very well with the audience. Don't be misled, you should really pick this book up.

I cocked my head at him. “Jack?"
“What?” he asked roughly.
“What are you doing?”
He smiled sarcastically. “I thought we weren’t going to ask each other personal questions,” he said. Maybe he saw the hurt in my eyes. He looked away.
"You’re mad about dinner.”
"You lied.”
I exhaled. "How exactly did I lie?"
"I thought you didn't date anyone," he said. He had stopped smiling. "You told me that, right?"
"It's complicated, but—”
"Complicated? You go to dinner with Andrew Brenner and you fuck me? No, that's not complicated," he smiled bitterly. "I mean this is fun and all, Hadley. This is really fucking great. But, don’t tell me you don't date people when all you really mean is you don't take me seriously. And don't tell me something is complicated when it's actually really simple."
"Andrew is the managing editor of the paper," I said. "He wanted to discuss a Valentine's Day issue."
"He took you to dinner to talk about Valentine's Day?"
“The Valentine’s Day issue of the newspaper." I ran my hand through my hair. "And let me finish. I already told you it wasn't a date. I’m not lying to you—”
“Would you let me finish?”
He looked at me. “Fine, finish."
“I didn't have time to talk about the issue last week and I said we'd talk over dinner to get him off my back," I said. "I thought we'd go to Chipotle or something. I didn't even remember I'd agreed to dinner until five minutes before and he had to drive me home to change because he'd made a reservation at Mill House."
He laughed bitterly. "Right."
"That's what happened!"
"I know you," he said. "You wouldn't have gone if you didn't want to. You say 'no' like nobody's business."
“It’s different.”
“How is it different?”
“Because he’s not like you,” I snapped.
Jack stepped back, hurt. "Right. Well, good to know where I stand."
“You don’t know where you stand. Obviously. We wouldn't be having this stupid argument if you did. He’s...he’s nothing like you. He doesn’t….he doesn’t scare me like you do.” I took a breath. “I don’t think you understand how much you scare me, Jack.”
He was quiet for a second. He took half a step towards me. He spoke softly. “Hadley, how the hell do I scare you?”

I looked at him and whispered, “You just do.”


  1. Jack scares Hadley with his intensity. He's wanting more than she's ready to give.

  2. I think its because the feeling for him scare her

  3. Hadley loves Jack and she is scared of the realization

  4. Yohanna baez
    I want to read this

  5. I think she's scared of him because of what he makes her feel, she acts crazy around him.

  6. Great excerpt! Can't leave it at, "You just do." There should always be a nice and detailed follow-up reason. :D

  7. I love that last bit. "You just do." that sent shivers up my back.
