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

”Problem is it feels so good to be bad… euphoric even.”


To answer your question right off the bat, YES this book contains cheating but what an entertaining ride!!

Jessica Ingro where have you been? This is really your first book?

I thought I had the story pretty much down: Samantha Moore is a successful romance author whose marriage has hit a rough patch. Her and her husband Aiden have been trying to conceive for months and then just stopped. They drift apart leaving Sam feeling alone and unlo

I feel like it’s my job as a reviewer to let you know this book is about cheating. If it bothers you to read about infidelity, this book is not for you.

“Life is messy and complicated. What we grow up thinking of as black and white is anything but. Gray areas are everywhere. No one knows this better than me.”

Samantha and Aidan Monroe have been married for ten years. For the last three years they had been trying to get pregnant, with no luck. Things between them change. Aidan is distant, they

I stepped of the path I was on and got lost.
I crossed lines that should have
never been crossed ❤

Well, that was definitely very very..

As some of my GR friends may already know, I'm a sucker for LOVE TRIANGLES.
That's why Love Square by Jessica Ingro was -- almost -- the perfect read for me!

This story starts with SAM and AIDEN having problems in their marriage. They've been trying to have a baby for almost three years...with no luck. During this time
**4 stars**

OMG...this book is just CRAZY!! Adultery, Cheating, Obssession, Love Triangles..... simply a train wreck waiting to happen.

Let me first off say, how much I really DETEST and HATE cheating, adultery, and love triangles. Combine all three and you got a recipe for disaster. So when a friend of mine recommended me this book I was so cautious and hesitant to read it and for some unknown reason I got sucked into this crazy madness and couldn't get off this train ride waiting to crash.
*J* Too Many Books Too Little Time

If you are adverse to cheating and love triangles then...

NOW! Do not proceed!

Truth be told, I HATE cheating....but I don't know, for some reason I got sucked in to the crazy on this one.

Sam and Aiden are married. They had been trying for several years to get pregnant, with no luck. Sam thinks maybe it's a sign, Aiden thinks she is giving up. They drift apart. For the past several months they have been more like roomates, leaving Sam insecure and down on herself.

4.5 emotional, gut wrenching, rollercoaster stars

When I first received this book as an ARC, I have to admit, I was unsure.
Cheating never flies with me and normally, reading about it turns me off. This was NOT the case with Love Square.
There's much to be said about this book which is hard to do without giving much away.

When in an unhappy, unaffectionate marriage, do you follow the sly white rabbit into simmering shadows of his rabbit hole or do you wait (im)patiently til you can see more clearly

4.5 Bitches Be Crazy Stars

Crazy Bitches. This book is all about one crazy bitch, her occasionally crazy and occasionally sane friend and the two guys she can't decide between. I will be honest here. I did not like Sam, the Main Crazy Bitch. For most of the book I wanted to slap her. She is not a likable character. And I'm okay with that. I like other books that don't have sweet Mary Poppins type characters. Some of my favorite books have unlikable characters. But Sam....she takes it to the next

I certainly had conflicting emotions while I was reading Love Square ~ I mean the synopsis alone should give you an indication that this book deals with a married woman and her high school love finding each other again. When I started the book the tone was set pretty quickly that there was something wrong with Aiden & Sam (Samantha) marriage ~ I have to say I read Sam's thoughts and ....

Love Square is intense, emotional, and certainly sexy. I was hooked from the start. It's a realistic story about what happens in a marriage when life doesn't go exactly the way you plan it. It's a story about betrayal, heartache, and falling in love again.

Oh, Samantha. She's the kind of character that you like, can relate to, but can also get mad at...really fast. There were so many parts of her story that I understood completely. She fell in love with a wonderful guy in college. They got marrie

Hmmm.... I just finished this book and I have to admit that I wasn't absolutely loving it right up until about the last twenty percent but the ending of this book just freakin blew me away. I don't want to spoil this book for anyone, so this review may be a little confusing until you read the book.

Let me start off by saying I really didn't like the heroine, Sam. My dislike for her really isn't even because she is a cheater. I can understand how she went down the forbidden path with Jacob. I'm n

Wow! This was a book that left me with many mixed emotions. Let me start by saying it has a love triangle and cheating, but before you push it aside and say that it’s not for you, I have to tell you that this one is different. This is not a story about some college age or young twenty somethings. This involves a couple in their thirties who have been together for 10+ years, and are going through real life situations that bring along strain and insecurities to a marriage.

Wow this book… CRAZY!! I couldn't quite get my thoughts in check with this one. The characters really reaped havoc on my emotions that’s for sure!

We've got Sam. She was in a marriage slump. She felt neglected and abandoned by her workaholic husband, Aiden. I didn't feel sorry for her, at first. If she was so upset about dressing sexy to try to entice Aiden to come to her and fulfil her sexual needs and then he ended up never actually falling for it, well come on Sam, take the lead and jump him a

I refuse to take off of the rating because of my hatred of these characters. I hated Sam. She was the worst character I've ever read. The only person I liked was Jacob and I hated him in the end, too. I feel like he was used as a scape goat to make Sam redeemable.

I think the fact that this book inspired such hatred in me deserves at least 4 stars.

I’m sitting here trying to wrap my head around this book I just read. And as a reviewer, I want to give you an understandable and cohesive review of “Love Square” by Jessica Ingro. Yeah, the more and more I think about it, I realize that this story was too intense, messy, thought conflicting and complicated to do so. This is all in a good way of course *insert smiley face here*.

The heroine of this tale is Samantha Monroe. She is an author of steamy romance novels, (like the one we all love to re

First. Sam. One, I wanted to hate her. Then I wanted to run up and say 'oh girl I feel you!' I think she of course went about her choices incorrectly. However this is life. We are human and guess what? No one is perfect!

I was provided an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

It took me a few days to process this book. No really. I haven’t picked up a book in days. I’ve read love triangles before. But, none like this! The author is not kidding when she calls it a love triangle gone bad (*hint, hint*). I wanted to throw things. I felt torn. I felt excited and angry. I loved every minute of it!

This book isn’t for the faint

Love Square is not a light-hearted easy read. Especially if you're married or ever been cheated on. You won't automatically relate or sympathize with Sam as a character. In fact, you may dislike her quite a lot through most of the book. I know I did.

Sam's marriage is a lonely one. Her and her husband live separate lives in the same house. There is little connection, little affection and no passion. When she runs into her first love and he offers her everything she isn't getting at home...she cav

Jessica Ingro has a true gift for writing, as is evidenced by this book, her debut novel, Love Square. It's an incredibly emotional story and one that will stay with me for quite some time. The plot does involve cheating, and while you may have a hard time accepting that people do cheat on one another or you do not want to read about it, let me just say that Jessica handles this subject beautifully.

Love Square is the story of Sam and Aiden, a married couple who have been together for many years

I loved this book and Sooo happy Kayla the Bibliophile told me to read it!! I am dying for book 2! I only gave 4 stars b/c I liked the book but not something I will want to re read over and over but still an amazing read couldn't put it down.

Sam is emotionally draining to say the least. I relate to her a lot and so reading the book brought up a lot feels and emotions. I was feeling everything right along with her. This book keeps your head spinning from beginning to end, and the very end left m

I received an ARC of this book, and was so excited to read it! Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It's kind of a touch subject dealing with a love triangle, especially when there is a marriage involved. However, I think this book really gets to all the "what-ifs" in life. What if you had stayed with your first love? What if you hadn't gotten married? What if your marriage were perfect? It also made me think of the infamous saying, "The grass is always greener on the other side".

I'm really torn when it comes to this book! The writing was good and the storyline was interesting but the main character, Sam, was so horrible I found myself hoping it would all blow up in her face!
Sam is married to a wonderful guy, Aiden, and they've been trying to have a baby. It's not working so they've grown a little distant from each other because of the stress.

I'm pretty sure that there are women out there that feel neglected and lonely and end up in the arms of someone who makes them feel like they're everything to them.

Over the following months, many rationalized decisions are made and life becomes more complicated. Just as things start to become clearer, the lines blur a little more and another complication arises.
