Release Day ~ Review & Giveaways for Love Me (The Keatyn Chronicles 4) by Jillian Dodd

Book Description:

My mom says that you can’t love someone until you learn to love yourself.
So even though Vincent is getting more and more scary.
Even though he’s doing a nationwide search for me.
I’m going to learn to love myself.

Well, I’m going to try.
Mostly, I want a boy to love me.
But which one?

Dawson - The gorgeous boy who made a mistake, but whose molten lava kisses and steaminess I can’t freaking resist.
Aiden - The God of all Hotties, who is practically infused with love potion. Who I thought liked me, but now says he wants to be my friend.
Brooklyn - The boy that first stole my heart. Who has always loved me. Well, until the whole cabana incident.

I mean, it was bad enough when there was sort of a love triangle, but now that I’m talking to B again, it’s like I’m in a love rectangle, or a rhombus, or something.

Oh, and did I mention Cooper Steele?
The new soccer coaching, health teaching, tattooed hunk?
Who Garrett sent to school to guard my body.
I mean, be my bodyguard.

But back to loving me.
I should forget about boys and worry about me.
Love me.
Like, eventually.

Our Review:
Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 – Aiden Must Be Moon Boy stars!!!!!
**ARC received for honest review**

“Yes, one minute I think I should just choose Dawson. The next minute, I think I want to be with Aiden. It was bad enough when it was a sort of love triangle. Now that I’m talking to B again, I realise how much I miss him. Now I’m in a love rectangle. Or a rhombus. Whatever. And it’s making me sick. I even have a sore throat.”

This is one series that I am seriously addicted to, yes I may be approaching 40 (quicker than I would like to be) but I love high school romance stories, I get to relive those feelings of being a teenager, swooning over boys, the what if’s the but’s and the why’s. It takes me back in time and I get to firmly implant myself into that point in time that should have been happy (as mine wasn’t) I relive it vicariously through authors like Jillian Dodd.

Love Me is book 4 in the series, so you must have read Stalk Me, Kiss Me and Date Me first.

“When he opens them, the hunger I saw briefly in his room when he had me pinned against his wall is back. And, once again, it is So. F**king. Sexy.”

I must admit, Keatyn did annoy me in parts in this book, as much as I love her to bits sometimes I just want to throttle her. It is all part of the “growing up” phase though and I must say Keatyn did an awful lot of growing up in this book. As the blurb states, this was Keatyn learning to love herself before she could love others and it was great to see her evolve in this book. I loved the texting tooing and froing between her grandparents and her mum asking for advice on how you know when you have found “the one.” I have been team Aiden from the time my eyes first read about the “god of all hotties” and my opinion was not even the tiniest bit swayed in this book. We all have our opinions on who Keatyn should end up with and no matter who it is in the end (if it is not Aiden I will be truly devastated) as long as Keatyn is happy, I will be happy (I think??? Lol)

Let’s do our ABC’s

A is for Aiden – the gold of all hotties, I must start with him as he is my number 1 contender!! He was absolutely brilliant in this book. He has the patience of a saint, he has amazing self-control, he knows what Keatyn wants and needs even before she does. Although Keatyn doesn’t always see this and sees his behaviour as rejection, he does not want to make mistakes, he wants this to last, he wants to build the foundations of a forever and you cannot help but swoon during this book. I do believe that he truly Loves Her!! There are some amazing moments between Keatyn and Aiden in this and yes they do eventually kiss with tongues!!! That is all I am saying, I can’t spoil anything for you, but it is A-MA-ZING!!!!


He moves closer to my face.


“I’d wait for you forever. You don’t get it do you?”

“Get what?”

“We’re going to be together for a long time. There is no need to rush things when you know that.”

B is for Brooklyn, to be honest I feel that this is a two horse race, B hopefully being the runner up to Aiden (but of course that is my personal choice). He does make an appearance in this book, they cannot be together because of Vincent and all that (yes it is still going on) but he tries to stake his claim. He does try to convince us (and Keatyn of course) but I am not sold…but he is a dangerous contender…there are some heartfelt scenes when B does something that had me swooning, but not enough to toss Aiden off my pedestal.

I’m glad we talked things out. We’ll talk soon, Okay?”

“And Keats?”

“Promise me that when this is over, I’ll get another chance.”

“I promise, B,” I say, mostly because I refuse to give up the dream that I’ll get the perfect ending to my script.

C is for……….(I’m not telling!!) just read and make your own assumptions…but man he does sound awfully good!! But not good enough for our Keatyn…sorry!!

D is for Dawson….hmmmm Dawson….he tries to redeem himself in this book, but for me, he is not the guy for our Keatyn. He proves my point in this book and I feel that whilst he believes he loves Keatyn (which I think he does), he is not “in love” with her. The thing I love about all the Johnson boys is they are fiercely protective of Keatyn, she is more like a sister to them but Dawson has the benefits. But will he have those benefits by the end?? You will have to read and see!!

All the others are still at school, so we have all the fun and frivolity, the Greek Games takes place during this book and I badly wanted to go to this school, it is just sooooo cool, we never had this in my day!! Vincent is still there on the horizon trying to capture who we don’t know…is it Keatyn or Abby, will he use one to get the other, or will he go a totally different route altogether. He is one messed up man and is a law unto himself. I can’t wait for the conclusion of this story line.

“When have I ever given you a friends vibe?”

“Um, when you said you wanted to be my friend after the stars.”

“I do want to be your friend, Boots. I want to be your everything.”

“Everything? Then why did you just stop?”

“Because we have to stop.”

I just LOVE this series, seriously addictive, if you just want a fun read, high school romance, high school trials and tribulations, the ups and downs of being a teenager then this is definitely the series for you. I seriously cannot wait for the next one, we still don’t know who our elusive moonboy is, Vincent is still on the loose, we are now in a love rhombus or rectangle thingy, killer ending as usual from Jillian Dodd and I am just arggghhh I want answers…I want Vincent dead or in jail, I want Aiden to be moonboy, I want, I want, I want, I want…now I sound like a teenager!! Must be this books influence…just go and read…you know you want too!!
