Review: Love Square by Jessica Ingro

Title: Love Square (Love Square #1)
Author: Jessica Ingro
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: July 18, 2013
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?


I was provided an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
It took me a few days to process this book.  No really. I haven’t picked up a book in days. I’ve read love triangles before. But, none like this! The author is not kidding when she calls it a love triangle gone bad (*hint, hint*). I wanted to throw things. I felt torn. I felt excited and angry. I loved every minute of it!
This book isn’t for the faint hearted. There are REAL issues here. Love is hard. Marriage is harder. This book will make you choose and you may even be surprised by your choice. This is a very well-written book that deals with cheating. I do not condone cheating, but hello it’s a book. And it’s GOOD! I read it in one sitting. Well, I had to put it down once to deal with real life, but was glued to it again after. Don’t let the cheating scare you away. You will miss out on some amazing characters and their story.
Samantha Monroe (Sam) is a writer. During one of her book signings, she ran into her ex boyfriend, Jacob. Nice right? Well, Sam is married to Aiden. They’ve been having marital issues.  Aiden loves his wife but they’ve grown apart. What married couple does not have issues? Sam feels so disconnected from her husband, Aiden. He is so wrapped up in work. She feels like his roommate.  Does this give her the right to stray from marriage? No. But don’t judge yet. You have no idea.
 Jacob. Sexy Jacob. Why do you want Sam? She is married. He doesn’t care. Ok he does. But, he wants Sam more. Their chemistry literally ignites the pages. Their scenes are intense, emotional and heart-felt. You also get to experience the guilt felt by Sam. Believe it or not, she truly loves, Aiden. Oh and yes, I am team Jacob! No judging!
Sam ends up making her choice, but she soon realizes that you cannot play with anyone’s heart and expect for yours not to be broken as well. And no, it doesn't go the direction you think it will. As the book is ending, the author throws a huge wrench in the story. Whoa! Did not see that train wreck coming! Genius!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It brought me out of my book funk. I cannot remember the last time, reading a book in one sitting. It was great. I need book 2. Now. If you are looking for a well-written, angsty, sexy novel, then this is for you! Every new adult fan should read.
