First I have to say I really liked this book. "Double Clutch" expresses exactly the way teens really are. There were parts in the book that I would read and think. Yup, I definitely would have done that or I remember doing that. It reminded me how love is an emotion and can deeply affect us at all ages. What Brenna was going through at fifteen years old, is easily something adults can go through as well. The feeling of liking two guys so deeply that it confuses you. That both guys can reach something different inside of you, that is something I feel you can experience at any age. However, it does take wisdom and maturity to make the right decisions or know the difference between what's real and what's not.

Brenna spent a year in Denmark and when she came back to the States, she had no difficulty finding her way back to normal again. Upon her first day of school, she meets sexy bad boy Saxon. And while attending Share Time, she meets cutie heartthrob Jake. Both complete opposites from the other. Saxon is the bad boy and unstable one while Jake is the bad one turned good. They both show interest in her and make their feelings known. Now she's stuck with the dilemma of choosing one over the other.

Now while both are charming, both had bad reputations. Which would make me run the other way. But choosing one wasn't too hard for Brenna. One pulled at her heartstrings more than the other. And of course, since both Jake and Saxon are former friends. They can't keep their negative comments and thoughts about the other to themselves. Brenna is stuck in the middle of defending her new boyfriend's honor and her friendship with the other. She learns the real reason behind the rivalry. It runs deeper than what her boyfriend thinks. But can she salvage the both before the beat themselves up over her? That's the real question.

Despite having a hot boyfriend, she still continues to do good in school. She doesn't let her hot and steamy relationship interfere with her school projects or her academic studies. Some of my favorite scenes are the one with Brenna and her boyfriend. Those two can get hot. And to be honest, as much as some readers may not like those scenes. It's reality. Teens now a days don't play too safe. They tend to get careless. I really want to tell you who she ends up with. But I don't do spoilers. However, I can say. That the guy she picks is whose team I'm on! I'm Team......

I really enjoyed this book, even though I get a little skeptic on reading books about teens as young as fifteen and sixteen. Liz didn't sugarcoat teens today. Teens today have problems just like adults do. Peer pressure is out there and some fall into the trap and get swallowed in with the bad crowd. I've already asked Liz if I can read the second book in series. So I'll be updating you soon about Brenna, Saxon and Jake. I give this book a 5/5 stars and a definite Good Choice for Reading.
