The Blue Valley series is not your typical love story. It is a journey through one’s past … maybe even a story resembling someone close to you.

It’s our story.

He’s the boy you hate to love, and love to hate.
Lucas, the star quarterback, seems to have it all—super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who will stop at nothing to be his, if only for a nig

Seriously, too much toxicity for my brain..
The writing felt choppy with with weird narrative setting though tbh i would have suffered my way through it if it was worth it in any sense but just read a spoiler and found out how different this book is from my taste.
And add that to the mix with an asshole badboy and a so call independent h ..yeah we can see where this is going miles long ahead ...

And I have this nagging feeling that I won't be liking either of the MC. One for being a repetitive a

Blue Love

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

Blue Love will get you in all the feels. This is what I love about MJ Fields, she knows how to make you go through all the emotions and she can make each and every story beautiful. This book will make you ugly cry.

Tessa Ross is a senior and field hockey player. She has never had a boyfriend, never been kissed, and a virgin. Her family is going through a rough patch and she decides to date Lucas Links. He’s a senior and the star football player the quarterback, every girl wants him. He’s been wi

5 star Review Blue Love (Love #1) by M.J. Fields

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I opened this book but what I got was a well written, emotional roller coaster of a read that got to me on so many levels. Be prepared there may be triggers for some so please take note.

I’m in two minds about Lucas, he is someone that is easy to hate as well as love. Lucas Links is the star quarterback, he can have anyone he wants and seems to want for nothing, however all is not as it seems and there is more

Blue Love is a heartbreaking, emotional story I have ever read! This is a first love/broken love story, with all the angst, confusions, helplessness and uncontrollable feelings. I love how Tessa and Lucas meet, it’s your typical strong independent girl meets bad boy. What I like is that there is more to the story than that. It’s definitely an emotional roller coaster that will make you sad, happy, laugh and angry. I really enjoyed reading their story and can’t wait to see what happens to them ne ...more

OMG I laughed so hard and cried so hard. This book had me all over the place. 🤣 Loved the references to time period. MJ really outdid herself retelling this story. Lucas really is the boy u love to hate but can't help loving. ...more

This book is so emotional and heartbreaking. Tessa is the glue that holds everyone together in her life until she meets one of the white hat boys Lucas Links. Lucas Links, high school football star, broken boy, new to Blue Valley High has been kissed more than once. His past constantly keeps coming back to haunt them, one nasty girl in particular Sadi. Tessa’s family is having issues and she has a bad habit of lashing out and definitely can’t handle liquor very well. Lucas does try so hard with ...more

Emotionally frustrating at times but the tragic love story that pulls you in and consumes you till the end.

Ok first off this book is highly emotionally draining at times. I mean it is a story that most of have endured once in life or knew someone that has went through this. If your looking for some sweet first love story or some kind of wining the bad boy over, then be warned this is not that story at all. This book has broken and flawed characters with real life issues and questionable family

This book literally ripped me open! So so so good. Now one of my top reads of 2021. This reminds me so much of my love of Anna Todd After books. Lucas! My sweet baby Lucas. He’s such a f*ck up, but I root for him to be good. He loves Tessa so much, and he tries so hard be a good guy. He’s literally my Hardin Scott all over again. I was in a hangover for some time when I finished the first two republished books. Lucas is definitely is now a top book boyfriend. He’s a dish, cocky, a**hole, but I’m ...more

This is not your typical teenage love story. The first part of Lucas and Tessa's senior year of high-school is filled with love and angst. Lucas came to Tessa's school with more baggage than any airline would allow but he wanted to get to know her more than anything in the world. He tried to be the man she deserved but just couldn't get it right. Through everything that happened between the couple, Tessa loved him. They supported each other as best as they could but knew by the end of this book ...more

stop now…

I read the entire first book and then had to skim the last 3. A lot of the same information over and over. This could’ve been one book.


If you’re looking for a happily ever after between Lucas and Tessa just stop reading. The first three books are basically Lucas treating Tessa like crap and cheating on her more than once but she keeps going back to him. Then in the very last book Tessa finds her happily ever after in someone else. It kind of irritates me that you spend three bo

“He’s the boy you hate to love, and love to hate”. Lucas is the star quarterback that moves to Blue Valley High. He catches Tessa’s eye, and she definitely catches his… It’s a fiery passion that neither are ready for. Totally different people, Lucas wants to be different for her but he has a past, a past that never stays in the past for long… Over and over again it comes to show her just how very different they truly are. Love is not meant to hurt this much and she deserves so much better than L ...more

💔 A highly charged emotional read 💔

This wasn't just a re-release story .. this was the same story only better! It gave me so much more than I could have ever expected or known that I wanted.
MJ Fields took a beautifully broken couple and made their story SO MUCH MORE than it was before .. everything is taking me back in time to my youth which makes me even more connected to it than before ... such a highly charged emotional read 💔

Tessa is one strong loving young women. She is trying to figure out her feelings and trying to do the right thing. Lucas is one strong man but he has issues to deal with.. He is trying to be a better person. He isn't sure how to deal with all his baggage. Sadi is an evil hurtful person. Can't wait to see where the story goes. Lucas is a man you hate but love. ...more

Blue Love will suck you in from start to finish. Jam packed with all the feels Lucas and Tessa embark on a love not many will understand. Lucas, the star football player and Tessa, an innocent flower, have an insta attraction that will have you on the edge of your seat. This is book 1 and just the start of the rollercoaster that will grab your heart!

I have read many books, hundreds, but this is the first one to frustrate me to annoyance. How do you find your soul mate to only have circumstances keep you apart. I just want them to be together, and I feel like I am being put through the wringer.

DNF for me sadly the characters were horrible she appeared ditzy and desperate and he was an apparent sex addict who treated her like crap… too many red flags got past half way and couldn’t push myself through it anymore

I read this book a long time ago and I am pretty sure I wasn’t as knowledgeable to Lucas & Tessa , at times it was really sad at times but it was so worth it to know the beginnings of so many awesome characters.

My book of the year! Five stars

When I stared this book is thought it was going to get boring and my surprise I could not put it down. The way the author nailed the 90s setting had me hooked. On to book 2.

What a journey

This book has been a journey that has made me feel like I'm literally watching someone's life. I love how strong Tessa is but I also love how this story shows that even the strongest at some point break to.

Tell me why book two is the exact same as book one? Then book three starts and their in college? Was this done on purpose? I'm about to just quit and go to another author!

This book and this author seriously know how to hit all the feels. This is a book worth rereading over and over again. I feel like the characters come to life and I know them. I am truly over Lucas and his BS but he is a love to hate and hate to love kinda guy. Seriously well done MJ

Whew, okay. I'm a bit torn with this one. I love MJ Fields, she's always been a go to author for me but I had yet to read the Blue Valley series. Now that she's decided to re-release it, I figured this would be a good time to jump on it. Honestly, Lucas and Tessa are toxic! It was so hard to like or even want them together because nothing about their relationship was healthy. They were both going through things individually with their families and my heart hurt for them in those moments. However ...more

Not what I thought at all

OK so I don't know what happened maybe I downloaded the wrong book or something this is not the book I thought it was. With that being said I read the book and it sucked, sorry but it did.. I couldn't tell what time frame the author was going for. One minute it sounds like maybe late 90s but then they talked about air fries and flip phones. I realy thank it was written back in the 90s and the writer now older and not up with times tried to rewrite it and failed. I will
