A Week in YA Kissing Books - Haiku Mini Review #2

Brenna kisses boys
Brenna describes all her clothes
Where’s the fecking plot?


I am not kidding around with that last line. (I take my haiku’s very seriously).

I really feel that this book suffered from lack of a solid plot. Sure, events happen. But it doesn’t feel cohesive, structured, or well-paced. There’s no real climax (in one sense of the word, anyway, and yes that was a sex pun) and the storyline feels curiously flat and meandering. The love tr

If I actually attempted to write all my reasons my hands would be disfigured; like misshapen claws....

4 stars! Junk Miles continues right where Double Clutch leaves off and sprinkles on plenty of angst and intense drama to this unique little love triangle. I will refrain from specifics, but I will say that the Jake-or-Saxon dilemma intensifies, as they both get some Brenna Blixen action in this installment!

The story kicks off with a mother/daughter trip to Paris-- a Christmas gift from Brenna's sometimes over-bearing, but very loving mother. After Brenna reluctantly  says goodbye to Jake, she se

First off, I'd like to give props to Liz Reinhardt on a story that is probably some of the most emotionally realistic stuff out there.
I remember once upon a time when I was this young, this stupid and was confused beyond control. She totally nails that messed up way young love is suppose to be about. The right, the wrong and the very ugly.

Now with that said...

Brenna’s true colors really shined through in this one. She, for lack of better terms, is a bitch and an elitist snob; so is her mother!

Things that bothered me :
◈ Brenna believes that Jake, her boyfriend, may not be good enough for her because he is poor and not as well traveled as she is. Home-girl needs a reality check because Jake is way out of her league.

◈ Her mother thinks that Brenna is the best thing since sliced bread – which again, is false. What I don’t understand is why Bren

Junk Miles, the second novel in the Brenna Blixen series by Liz Reinhardt, continues with Brenna, Jake and Saxon’s story. And let me just say, I love their story! I know it's not finished yet, but I am having so much fun reading their love story.

For the last couple months, Brenna and Jake have been in a happy, loving relationship, but Brenna can’t stop thinking about Saxon for some unknown reason. Jake is a great

There were parts that I enjoyed. Brenna is still figuring herself out AND still drawn to both boys. She makes mistakes but so do the boys. Her voice is realistic, if a little self-involved. It’s still geared to a more mature audience, with the sex and exploration and what not, but there is more drama (as to the last, is that a good thing or not?)

Now, faced with the ever present love triangle, do I want to start this by settling on which of her choices was hotter? Should I? Really? If Double Clu

dear brenna,
brenna...brenna...brenna....what a fucking mess you created! Your head girl is pretty fucked up. You definitely annoyed me on this one. Getting caught up between two boys (and brothers for that) is not a good idea, bet on that. Brenna, you are the most confused and fucked up girl i met for quite awhile. More fucked up than saxon (which says a lot comparing u to saxon). I hate what you did to jake (poor boy) screwed him up big time. I can't forgive you for this one. Please use

I'm having a hard time beginning to review this book, because I disliked it SO MUCH, and I want to be fair and not completely rude about it, but it's hard when I really can't stand the book itself or any of the characters in it. Since I'm such a character-driven reader (does that make sense? hmm) I'll focus on them to describe why I can't stand this book.

Let me say that I have been recommending this series to everyone I know. Every time I get together with my friends these books are all I seem to talk of. I enjoy them so much my husband was actually jealous that I was spending more time with them then him (we worked it out of course /:-).

This book was a little more emotional for me, and I hope anyone is enjoying the “Sense and Sensibility” similarities in this series as much as I am. To say I love Sense and Sensibility is an understatement, and

To say at the end of Double Clutch I was on Team Saxon would be an understatement. Honestly there was no doubt in my mind that he and Brenna made more sense. Sure Jake was sweet and seemed to really love Brenna, but I'm such a sucker for the bad boy that I couldn't be swayed. That is until I read Junk Miles.

In book two of this delightful series, Brenna is forced to make some hard choices when it comes to who she gives her heart to and finds herself left to deal with the unsavory consequences. W

**Warning, possible spoilers in this review**

So if you’ve read the premise of this book, or if you read book one, you know Brenna ends up with. I love bad boys, and Saxon is definitely that, but Jake is just a total sweetheart and treats Brenna like a queen. For Brenna, apparently, that is one of the reasons she decided to ruin their relationship in this book. I was extremely frustrated with her in this story. I did NOT agree with how she treated Jake. I know they’re young and they’re

Going to keep this review nice and short.

Junk Miles was definitely worth the wait. I completely adored the first one (Double Clutch). I'd heard a few mixed things, and some people were even angry with Brenna in this one. The way she dealt with certain situations probably wasn't the best way to do it, but I understand her confusion. Jake is the right one for her, the safe one, but Saxon is the dangerous and irresistible one. So what would you do if you were away from the guy you thought was right

If gender roles were reversed (Brenna a boy and Jake and Sexton girls) wouldn't she be...THE BIGGEST WANKER EVER? I don't think guys would have "teams" and if they read about a dude doing this they would either praise him for being a player, or hated for being a douche bag. Girl power? Lead girl is strong? No. She's 15 and acts like it. She is obsessed with boys. That is very well written for that age, but she's just as selfish and self absorbed as a 15 yr old boy...and older.

Такое ощущение, что совсем другой человек писал. Мне все время хотелось спросить: "Чтооо?" Тут я уже определилась с тем, что двое из трех героев - полные идиоты, эгоисты и безумно странные. Я определилась с парнем (кстати, необычный для меня выбор, плюс героиня, скорее всего с ним останется), потому что он хоть относительно адекватный был. Но вообще вся книга от начала и до конца какая-то бредовая. Мне интересно, конечно, чем дело кончится, но...

Oh goodness gracious! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than the first,,, it does! This is the 2nd novel in the Brenna Blixen series (the 3rd to come out sometime in the Spring of 2012). I am so glad that I gave these novels a shot, because they rock! I'll note that I am a Jersey girl, born and bred and so is Brenna and her 2 hot and sexy men, Jack and Saxon. So, it made this series even more appealing to me that the characters live in NJ.

5 Stars. Junk Miles is the second of three novels in the Brenna Blixen series, continuing the story of Brenna and her relationships with Jake and Saxon. I think the most important thing I can say about this series is that the author is so fantastic with the character development and peeling back the layers of each character as the relationships between the three of them shift. I found it tough to put Junk Miles down, really just wanting to find out what happens next.

As a testament to how much this book impacted me, I actually put it down and almost decided not to finish it....at first. I’m glad I picked it back up. This is book 2 of the Brenna Blixen series. The first book, Double Clutch (Brenna Blixen, #1) by Liz Reinhardt was a sweet, teenage relationship read - in the spirit of the Judy Blume books I grew up reading.

This book starts of with the main character, Brenna in a relationship with Jake and on her way to Paris with her mom …. and the OTHER guy she is attracted to, Saxon.

Let me tell you that I really am enjoying this series. Even though it involves a love triangle, the writer does an excellent job. Liz Reinhardt, I love your solo work.
I don't want to give anything away so it is hard for me to write this review.

Brenna drove me nuts, so expect that when you are reading this series. She could be snotty and always thought she knew more than Jake, but then I loved that Jake grew some "balls." However, to be fair, Brenna is a 16 year old sophomore. She is suppose to

I am all too often not in love with a second book in a series because what's been built up in the first is usually torn down and generally rebuilt in the last second. Honestly, that's not only sometimes hard to read when I loved the first one, but it's also just been overdone. I feared that here with Junk Miles especially since I adored Jake and knew that his head was most likely on the chopping block.

I'm giving this 4 stars primarily because Reinhardt had me glued to this book. I was invested

Junk Miles is an emotional love triangle I couldn't put down!

Brenna loves her gorgeous boyfriend Jake, but can't stop thinking about Saxon who is brilliant, arrogant and sexy as hell. This book took me back to high school and the angsty tug of war of young love. Brenna is a strong smart young woman, but struggles with what she knows is right and what tempts her. It's like buying a Snickers bar, your favorite, but still wanting the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. They're both awesome for different rea

This sequel to Double Clutch had me in a marathon "one sitting" read, I really want to give it 4.5 stars!!

It's an emotional roller coaster ride that had me happy one minute and frustrated the next, very much like a love-hate thing. As much as I adored Brenna, some of her decisions and actions peeved me off..but not enough not to love her and her imperfections.

Loved this book!! I read it in one day and couldn't put it down. I'm still torn between both Saxon and Jake. I love them both. Brenna loves Jake, but she has feelings for Saxon too. I'm glad Brenna and Saxon had some time together in this book. Their relationship is kind of toxic though. Saxon is really a bad boy that makes stupid decisions, well, actually Jake does too, but I still wonder who Brenna will end up with in the end. Saxon seems relentless to constantly ruffle Brenna's feathers, so i ...more

"That you should want what you have instead?" I guessed.
"No! That's ridiculous advice. Jesus, who told you that? Never mind, don't even answer that. Just forget you ever heard it. They, and by 'they' I am referring to those who know what the hell they're talking about, say that you can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes..." He held out his hand for me to finish.
"You just might get what you need?"
He shucked me under the chin and gave me his best cocky smile. "There's hope for you yet."
He walked away from me with a determined swagger and didn't look back.”
