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 it’s 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 must say that I initially battled with continuing this story, but I am so happy that I did! I am not a fan of cheating, but this story is SO much more than that! I am married, and I have felt many of the feelings that Sam goes through, so I really connected to her. Every marriage goes through a rough patch, and I think I had such a hard time because I really identified with her. Well aside from the cheating, I wouldn't risk my family for anything! BUT... I can understand why she did.
Jessica shares Sam's point of view throught the story and sometimes you want to scream at the pages with some of the choices she makes, but its hard not to sympathies. She just wants to feel wanted and loved, what girl doesn't? Girls need that! Guys need thier egos strokes and girls need their hearts!
We see inside of all Sam's choices and what comes spiraling after them. Nothing in life worth having is easy, and not everyone will be happy ALL the time. Sam is on a journey of self love. No matter how much you blame others, happiness comes from within yourself. This really was a true self analysing read and i cant stop thinking about it. i am so happy that i didnt stop pnce i realized it had infidelity. i really cannot think of one thing that could have made this book any better! Jessica did such a great job writting this and I cannot wait for book 2! There is not a cliffhanger as long as you don't include the sneak peak into book 2 which will be from Jacob's POV.
I am team Aiden all the way! Especially after the epilogue, I was screaming HELL YEAH!!!
I talked about three people, but it is called Love Square for a reason ;)
Rating 5 stars

I awake and slowly blink the sleep out of my eyes. The sun is fading, casting dark shadows in the room. I turn my head to see I’m alone in the bed. Lying on my stomach, staring non-seeing into the room, I remember how exquisitely fucked I was just a few hours ago.
The feel of his hard body over mine and his cock moving in and out of me, the sweat dripping off him as we both came. I feel myself getting turned on all over again, and he isn’t even here touching me. Then I remember his muted words spoken right before I fell asleep.
I want you to know I would have waited another sixteen years to be able to feel that with you again.
I’m finding it hard to believe that Jacob could rescue me from the prison I’ve put myself in over the years, living the life of someone other than whom I feel I should be. Even if that is my true wish, wishes don’t always come true.
The hotel room door opens and Jacob walks in carrying a couple bottles of water from a vending machine, setting them on a side table. He looks yummy as he walks to the bed with a wide smile on his face. Sitting next to me on the edge of the bed, he bends down and kisses my shoulder and then down my naked spine, stopping where the sheet lies just above my ass.
“Hey, sleepyhead,” he murmurs in between those drugging kisses. My legs start to stir beneath the sheet and I’m tempted to take another ride before I have to leave.
“Hey. If you keep doing that, you’re not going to be able to stop me from having my wicked way with you again and I need to leave soon.” I sigh with frustration.
“Maybe that’s exactly what I want.” Running a finger up and down my spine, he stretches out next to me.
“I’m sure it is, but I have stuff to get done before I’m back on the road in a few days. I warned you I didn’t have much time,but I would do my best to make this work,” I reply, trying to fight the affect his touch is having on my willpower.
“It feels like I just got you back, and now you have to go away again. I’d much rather see your beautiful face, instead of dreaming of it. Will you have time to sneak away again before you fly out?”
“I’m not sure. We’ll have to play it by ear. I don’t know how much I have to give you, Jacob. And I’m not just talking about my time either. I’ve been going down this lonely path for a while now and I’m not sure where it’s left me. Regardless of what we did today, I am still a married woman with commitments and responsibilities.” I hate bringing up this fact, but I need the reminder out there that this isn’t a fairytale. Its real life, and its messy.
He leans over and thoroughly kisses me before murmuring, “I know. And I’ll take whatever I can get with you. It’s better than having none of you.”
With that parting blow, he kisses me one last time, grabs his keys and heads out. “Text me later, baby. I’ll be waiting.”
I sure hope I know what I’m doing, because it feels as though things are going to get extremely complicated.
