My thoughts on books 1 to 3

The last time I read a couple this buggered, is the Closer Trilogy.. Except Lucas and Tessa are WORSE. Much worse. They are so wrong for each other. The words: obsessed, possessive, needy, territorial, jealous don't come close to describing how he feels about her. She is exactly the same. I wish I could put into words how intense this read is.

The blurbs of each book explains exactly what stage they are at in their lives, so we sort of know where each book is going. Bu

Once again this author spins a truly amazing story. This is not the typical high school girl fall in love with high school quarterback. It evolves just like life with stumbling blocks, challenges, moments of great happiness and most of all, an enduring love that blossoms and grows. There are life lessons learned in reading this book. I would definitely recommend this to all ages from 16 to 100.

I thank M J Fields for providing me an ARC in return of an honest review.

I was given an ARC copy of this book and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. MJ Fields has a way of bringing life to her characters and enabling the reader to feel everything that the characters feel. This book has excellent character development and a very strong, addicting story line. There were moments in this book when I felt frustrated, happy and yes, even at times, sad. I can't wait to read the other books in this series. I highly recommend this book!

Tessa and Lucas' beginning story was nothing but turmoil and drama. I felt exhausted by the end with the constant back and forth with I love you, I hate you, I want you, I don't. And for a virgin Tessa sure moved fast with all three guys she was with in this book. It was frustrating to read but I was still drawn into the story and now have to read the rest to know where Lucas and Tessa end up. If Sadi really is pregnant I'll eat my shirt. I want everyone to get their HEA- except maybe Sadi...... ...more

I honestly couldn't get past the writing to even attempt to like the story. I did not finish and actually requested a refund from Amazon which I never do.
Per the author's website, this is a revised and newly edited version of her previously released Love Series and will be book one of a four book series. The rest of the series is slated for re-release in October.

This is story about a rural, farming community in New York which was hit by budget cuts, so several small schools had to merge together. This brought in new faces and new people to ogle in a small town high school and the drama that comes with it.

This story focuses on Tessa Ross who is th

this book shattered me. Ladies get out some kleenex for Lucas will tug at those heartstrings especially when he is trying to do the right think even if it means losing Tessa. At times it is hard to read because of the stylistic writing being a little choppy but the emotions and beauty of the book will have you forget that.

Lucas is a messed up broken young man who doesn't know any other way to be but incorrigible. He has woman like we take breathes. that is until Tessa. Tessa changes that. From

I gave Blue Love, the first book in M.J. Fields’ Love series, two leaves. I tried so hard to like this book, I really did. It was a unique story, but I couldn’t relate or even like any of it. The beginning was intriguing. The story was told from an omniscient third person point of view. The first few chapters were actually kind of a jumble, but like I said, it was intriguing. It skipped to about six different characters’ POVs in maybe the first th

3.5 stars. The writing style in the beginning of this book gave me whiplash, but it got better once I got the hang of it. The character's POV were all over the place. Lost some points for grammar things (these usually don't bother me) like saying "hu" instead of "huh" and using shake your head for yes and no instead of nod. Unless the author said "shook their head yes" I got confused EVERY time. I liked the book - I was reminded of a mix between Tijan and Keatyn Chronicles and I will definitely ...more

Holy Wow, this is an emotional read.

Tessa's family lives on a farm. Her parents have been having problems, but she's wondering if it's all starting to end. Her mom is cleaning out the house and it's like a bad omen. She's just waiting for the divorce talk. This is supposed to be a great year for her, but with taking care of her younger siblings and the entire house, how can she focus on anything? When she meets Lucas, he's just like the other white hats....Nice to look at, but that's it. She's

Whiplash. Yes, I have whiplash from reading this book. I love you. I hate you. I need you. Go away. No, wait...come back...I love you again. It's all so high school. Oh. Yeah. No wonder...It's set in high school. This is the best kind of whiplash.

Blue Love written by MJ Fields is a powerful love story between two seniors in High School. Tessa is your typical average teenager. She is very involved in church and helping her family. She is also a field Hockey player along with her three best friends, one of which is her cousin Jade. Lucas is a wild teenager, he really has no boundries since his parents have let him roam free most of his life. Due to a family trajedy Tessa's brother Alex is in the same grade as her and Jade.

This book is a typical high school drama with a lot of on-and-off relationship theatrics.

Love and hate, going as an inseparable duo for most of the time is what defines this story.

Tessa is a normal, rather shy and insecure high school attendee. She's a field hockey player and has lots of friends. We get to know them all from different POVs. In addition she had great family, at least until her parents decided to take a break from each other, splitting the siblings. Is it her mother's fault? Or sh

“You’re not use to this kind of attention, are you?”

“You need to get used to it Tessa. I’m going to be watching you.”

“Sounds kind of stalker-ish, LL”

This book made me giggle. I felt like I was 16 again.
(Although when I was this age- text & Internet did not exist. Shhhh!)
My emotions were UP and DOWN!
I felt like I was five seconds from having a HS drama induced meltdown at any moment. Insanity! I was all over the place. Emotions run high in this story.

When I first began reading this book, I assumed it would the regular teenage drama. Boy meets girl, they like each other but fight it until they both explode, they fall in love, kiss, maybe get busy, the end! That is not what I got! What I got was two people, teenagers mind you, who in some instances are more mature and stable than some of the adults I've read about!! Young, virginal, Tessa has backbone, confidence, and strength. She tries to resist Lucas, but eventually decides to giv

Well not really sure what I think about that.

The editing I will tell you right off the bat is dreadful. Almost painful. There are moments when I almost don't know who is talking.. But that wasn't my biggest issue...

This book had HUGE potential, I mean the plot could have been just down right amazing, but the way that it was laid out, made it anything but.

First of all I am not stuck up, so I have no issue with cheating, in fact it adds to the angst and I LOVE that in my books, and boy did this bo

High school drama and angst to the nth degree -- some of it very serious in nature and others just plain cray-cray and silly. The book does draw your attention quickly and even when I was amused and thinking why am I reading this, I still read on and couldn't stop. The writing was choppy and there were numerous editing problems -- some of the lazy non-proofed type which drives me over the ledge. It could have been a much cleaner and easier read.

There are some books that just hit you hard. This was one of those books for me. It resonated with me. We've all had first loves, we've all had a relationship that has messed with our heads and hearts in one way or another. This book just ended up pulling all those emotions out of me.

Tessa has been raised very properly by her family, and religion, family and school are all focuses in her life. As the story begins her family life is beginning to crumble and while it's her senior year and she's s

I'm sorry but this book it not my type. First of all, I kept getting confused in the first couple of chapters, it kept going from one cousin's point of view to the other cousin, it was so confusing. Second, the guy cheated big time, that was a total turn off. It was just a road wreck. I had to force myself to finish it, I was so disgusted. I researched that it had four other books to continue the series. They don't end up together until the 5th book and twenty years later. Come on. This book tra ...more

Never read anything as frustrating

A niave girl a manwhore of a boyfriend both are so all over the place and indecisive yet proclaimed love, It drove me nuts.

Told as third person which got really confusing at the beginning wasn't sure who's story it was.

Thankfully I have read other books from this author and enjoyed so I presume this was an earlier publication because if not I wouldn't of gone there again

Really disliked it and my downfall is I always give a book a chance and finish it.
