Blog Tour & Giveaway: Love Square [Love Square 01] by Jessica Ingro!

Publication date: 19th July 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis: A love triangle gone bad...

He was the one guy I couldn't get enough of. One look from him would make me melt. He was the one I always wanted to love me, but always seemed so far away. Now he stands before me and he's turning my world upside down.

At one time I would have done anything to be close to him. But will that anything include betraying the man I pledged myself to and that loves me faithfully?

Samantha Monroe had it all. Or at least everyone thought she did. A career on the rise, a gorgeous husband, great friends and a beautiful home. So why does she feel so alone and empty? When she reconnects with an old flame, lines are tested and compromises made in a quest for happiness.

Jacob Matthews always wondered what happened to Sam Monroe. When fate brings them together after all these years, he can't help but wonder if its meant to be. But when he meets his perfect woman, there is no doubt in his mind she's his soul mate. Will the search for happiness cost them everything or will their love square show them what really matters?

*My review may contain minor spoilers!*

I had been really looking forward to reading this book for a while after the author contacted me for a review and then I signed up for the Blog Tour and got on it! I was a little let down with this book, but from the synopsis it isn't normally a book that I would pick up on my own as it obviously says what's going to happen and what it does say happens is something that I absolutely hate! This book frustrated me so much! And I don't normally get frustrated at books! I wanted to dislike it because something happens in it that I absolutely detest and the synopsis kind of tells you what it is, but something about it kept me reading on! The plot of this book was sex, sex, sex! No joke! It was hard to see what the original plot was behind all the sex as in every chapter there were one or more sex scenes! I kind of understand why this was, but in every chapter? I probably won't be the first to admit that the sex scenes were deliciously hot though! I really enjoyed that the author put in scenes from when two of the characters were younger as it was good to see them at an earlier stage in their lives and see how they have developed since then! The plot also sort of backfires on the main character near the end of the book and I wasn't really expecting that to happen! I was quite surprised to be honest! I liked how the book ended though! The characters were great! Samantha "Sam" was the main character and I thought that I wasn't going to like her because of what she did in this book, but I could see how unhappy she was and why she did what she did, but I did kind of lose some respect for her! I liked that she did question what she was doing several times in the book, but then she annoyed me again after she questioned herself and then didn't really do anything about it! I don't agree with cheating in a relationship at all, so it was hard for me to connect with Sam at times even though I could kind of see why she did it! I didn't like what she did near the end of the book as well! She became a bit obsessed and her change in behaviour did kind of scare me! She did redeem herself though! Aiden and Jacob were the love interests of Sam and I did like both of them! Sam was obviously married to Aiden, but the spark had sort of gone from their relationship and then enters Jacob! It takes, from what I can estimate, months before Sam actually realises who she truly loves! She did think that she was with the right person and she was, but it takes a mistake as such for her to realise that she was already with the right person! I didn't know that there was going to be another book to this series when I started reading Love Square but I'm quite looking forward to reading it and going inside a character's head who played a big part in this book! The cover for this book was what made me want to read it! I wanted to read the story behind it as the cover's hot! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Love Square and also for having me on the Blog Tour!
