Double Clutch (A Brenna Blixen Novel)                

 Double Clutch

Liz Reinhardt

538 pages

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. 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 darker and more complex than Brenna is willing to deal with. 

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 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 is she supposed to do that when giving her heart to one of them might mean breaking the other's?

Recommended Age Group: Older YA

 I know a lot of people don’t care for love traingles, but I’m a fan of them! I really enjoyed this book.
Brenna Blixen has spent freshman year in Denmark and has returned to the states for Sophomore year. Brenna is a strong, fun main character that doesn't let anyone push her around, especially not Saxon. She has a great relationship with her mother, which is different than a lot of YA books I've read, the parents are not always there or are out of the picture.
The first day of school she meets two very different, very hot guys, the “bad boy” Saxon Maclean and the “nice guy” Jake Kelly. Saxon is dangerous and mysterious. Jake is sweet and kind. Jake is smart while Saxon don't really care about school, or anything really for that matter. I’m team Saxon.
The more Brenna gets to know the guys the more feelings she gets for them. Brenna finds out that while they used to be best of friends now they can’t stand each other.What happened between them to make them hate each other? 

Thank you Ms. Reinhardt, what a great book. I'm honored to have read you'r book. The only question I have is when is the next book coming out?
This recommended this book to everyone.

5/5 stars
