Double Clutch (Brenna Blixen #1) by Liz Reinhardt

Goodreads description:

What happens when you fall in love with the perfect guy... twice... in 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. And by unforgettable, she imagined awesome classes, fun friendships, and maybe a little romance. 

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. 

But Saxon is a proud player who makes it clear that he doesn’t know why he can’t get Brenna off of his mind and out of his system, and Jake’s sweet and humble attitude hides a secret past life that might be more darker and more complex than Brenna’s willing to handle. 

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 both academic and technical high school, and running the track like a maniac, Brenna has enough to worry about with out juggling two guys who make her heart thud and drive her crazy all at once. 

She has to make a choice. But how can she when giving her heart to one of them might mean breaking the other’s? 

My Review:


From the beginning I thought this book was going to be good despite the protagonist being only 15 (I usually have a book age limit- no one under 16) but the character- Brenna - seemed quite mature so I was happy. However, around page 100 I started to get disappointed because of the sudden change in the narrator's personality.
The story focuses on a teenage love triangle which I normally wouldn't be able to sit through but this time I was and found myself looking forward to reading the second book to find out what happens.
