Chelly’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3
Hadley Arrington is the perfect student – a college senior with a 4.0 GPA, runs the school newspaper, knows exactly what she’s going to do with her life, and there is no room for guys. Some may say she’s boring, but after seeing her mom “fall in love” more times than she cares to count, she decides to rely on her career instead of love. When Hadley’s roommate, David, dares her to do something fun and spontaneous, she ends up in the arms of a stranger, kissing him in the rain. She never got his name but she can’t get him out of her mind…
After an article sheds some bad light on a fraternity house and one of Hadley’s writers starts receiving threats, she heads to the frat house to set things straight. Cue Jack Diamond in all his yummy glory, the stranger in the rain, and the Vice President of the frat house. He has no goals in life, no real plans, and he’s a rule breaker. He realizes quickly how special and different Hadley is, and no matter how many times she rejects him, he won’t give up. She doesn’t do relationships, but could a no-strings, friends with benefits relationship work? Jack knows it’s too good to be true, but he’ll take what he can get. Hadley believes you can control who you love, you don’t just fall…but will she fall for Jack? Does she really not want to fall in love or is this just what she tells people because she’s scared of getting her heart broken? When she gets offered her dream job, she’s given an ultimatum…will she let her love show or walk away from the chance and stick with what she’s sure she wants in life?
Love Show is a GREAT love story, but it’s so much more than that. Yes, it focuses on two individuals who have crappy pasts and their own issues to overcome, but it also sheds some light on homosexuality, abuse, the realities of war-torn countries, and so much more. The character development was perfect and real, and I loved *almost* everyone, especially David, Hadley’s gay roommate. There were times I laughed out loud, and times where my heart just broke for some of the characters. This was my first introduction to Audrey Bell’s writing, but I am so thankful for the opportunity to experience Jack and Hadley’s journey, and I look forward to more from this author.
