Love Triangle Anyone?

Double Clutch
A Brenna Blixen Book: Vol 1

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.  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.  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 without 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?   

A little slow to start, but picked up as we get to meet Saxon and Jake. At first didn't feel any connection with Brenna, but as we get further into the story and her feelings for these two guys surface, we can sympathise with her, and the dilemma she finds herself in.

Saxon reminded me of every guy that I went to High School with. The cool guy, who was always hitting on the hottest girls in school, but really had a crush on you, since you were the ONLY person who really saw them for who they really were.

Jake was the classic good/bad boy....motorcycle, tortured artist...ahhh love those guys!! So I have to say I am on Team Jake, and I hope that things continue to go well between these two. 

I will definitely invest in the next book of the series.
