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.

A walk through hell ended in defeat when Lucas and Tessa decided it’s best to remain friends. A decision made for the betterment of all.

But is it possible to walk away when they share a love as deep as theirs?

Can they

This series is addictive.

I always love a story that’s not perfect but yet so good that you just cannot put it down.

I went from crying, cheering, happy, to angst and to downright want Tessa to f#%k up Lucas.

I really cannot wait for their next book and I’m hoping Lucas really realises what a d*ck he’s been.

5 star Review New Love (Love #2) by M.J. Fields

New Love is the second book in the love series and was an emotional roller coaster of a read. There may be triggers for some so please take note before you start this book. .

I am still struggling with Lucas although I liked him more in this book than I did in the first one; he still acted as a bit of a jerk. Lucas and Tessa have decided that it is better to be friends than in a relationship but can that work when strong feelings still sizzle betwee

More Emotional than Blue...

New Love continues with Tessa, Lucas, and the rest of the Blue Valley crew.
Tessa is navigating through her heartbreak and suffers much more than any teenager should.
Lucas is trying to do right by Sadie but suffering heartbreak and life changing things himself.

Again not wanting to give anything away I don't want to say to much...
The Blue Valley Crew will face some life changing situations.
Will they ever be whole again...

I've never cried so fricken hard in my damn life.

Lucas Links & Tessa Ross’s Journey is not your typical love story, these are two people that will go through so many emotional events that will change their lives forever.
This Amazing story will bring you on a sometimes heartwarming journey but their will definitely be some heartbreaking ones too.
Watching the two of them navigate the emotions will have you sometimes laughing out loud but at times also shedding a tear. This is just book two in their story and wanting to know what happens next w

New Love is book two in the Blue Valley Series and it’s an emotional roller coaster about first love and growing up. This time we get to know more about Tessa and Lucas as well as catching up with the rest of Blue Valley crew. Tessa has been through so much and honestly my heart broke for her because no teenager should suffer the way she has. Deciding they would be better as friends rather than a relationship means putting their feelings on hold but is that really possible when love runs so deep ...more

This story of first love and young love was one emotional read. The ups and downs of young love and the struggles that they face made for one roller coaster of a read that left me wanting for more especially since it is a relatable story. I look forward to seeing what is next for this pair.

Book 2 in the Love series it cannot be read as a standalone.
Another emotional story. I cried and cried and cried again.
My hear broke for her
My heart broke for them.
I can't express how much I love this series.
MJ Fields has blown me away with this series.
I love her Steele books but this duet is in a class by itself.

Tragedy, loss, and toxic love is definitely in abundance in book two.

Wow I have to say MJ, has given me so many emotions with this storyline. I have cried, and I have been frustrated, and even angry reading this book. I will say these characters are very much like living in the past with now knowing the signs of a toxic relationship when you see it.

This book definitely has so many tragic events taking place and so many things become much more clearer on who these characters really are. I will s

This is an honest review for an arc received.

This is the second book of Tessa and Lucas’ love story. I will say, this book is a lot harder on your heart. The tragedies and utter heartbreak these characters have to endure and survive through was devastating. But I loved seeing the growth with them, both individually and also as a group. You will love Lucas and at the same time want to throttle him. Tessa will show strength that she never knew she had, and their friends will become their own littl

I volunteered to read and review an advanced readers copy of New Love . I love this story . This is book two in the Blue Valley series . Tessa decides it better for her if she and Lucas are just friends . Her heart cannot take all the crap he continues to hand her . There is not any trust left and Lucas continues to get in his own way . The hits keep coming . This story is well written and so very emotional . This story of young love just rips your heart out . It is a rollercoaster ride of emoti ...more

Grab the tissues for this one, you're going to need them! Tessa and Lucas are an absolute force of nature, life keeps throwing everything at them and even though they try to stay just friends, the love they have for each other is always there lurking between them.. three words, eight letters. I loved the nineties nostalgia, the music, tv shows and sweet valley high books, having grown up in that era makes you remember the frustration of not being able to call anyone at the drop of a hat, when th ...more

Ohh my heart!! I loved this book and it’s intensity had me invested emotionally with Tessa and Lucas. Book 2 has so much more triggers than book 1. This storyline picks up with Tessa and Lucas remaining friends. Their love is just too strong, too mature to not be together.
As the storyline progresses there will be tragedy and secrets revealed. The author created a believable story and characters, real life in writing. Through it all Tessa who is such a mature and responsible lady and Lucas also

New Love is continued from Blue Love. This book is more emotional. You will see Lucas walk away from his true love and push her away. He says he will never love Sadie but he wants to do what is right and what is expected of him by the love of his life, his only true love, Tessa.

Tessa decides to leave town for a few days and something unexpected happens. Then a few more unexpected events happen. Will Tessa ever be the same again? Will she hide from her friends or lean on them for support? What a

I really wanted to know what happened with Tessa and Lucas after reading Blue Love. While I didn’t feel like I really connected with them in book one, I was still curious about where their story would lead. Unfortunately, I’m still struggling with reading about these two. So much happened in the first 30% that I couldn’t possibly guess what would happen next. Tessa is all over the place. The way she jumped from guy to guy was frustrating. I didn’t find her feelings for any of them to be believab ...more

Picking right up where Blue Love left off we have New Love, book #2 in the series and this is a highly emotional read - you completely feel the angst and heartache, at times my heart totally broke for Tessa and how someone so young had be dealt with so much pain.

Opting to be just friends, this is the story of how Lucas Links and Tessa Ross navigate their new ‘normal’, but with both ex’s and new love interests adding to the drama, this book definitely keeps you on your toes.

New Love is the continuation of Tessa and Lucas story plus we get to follow the rest of Blue Valley High. These two have so many hurdles to jump and the hits just keep on coming as they navigate their way. Emotions run high the angst is felt coming off the page and the choices they both make are not always wise but young love is never easy.

I will say its not very often a book rips my heart out and has me bawling like a baby but MJ did with this emotional roller coaster, make sure you don't have

Not a standalone. For most of this book, Lucas is a different and better person than the previous book. The group of them go through tremendous loss, especially Lucas, who’d gets a double whammy. Tessa gets mad and acts like a crazy person at times and occasionally uses illicit substances. Jade is Jade, but the changes in her life are monumental. Ben is interesting. Some of Lucas’ new friends at the end are awful. There are a lot of relationship transitions among characters. Cliffhanger ending.

Up the hill of emotions...

New Love...this is definitely a new kind of love with the second book in the series. New levels of love, new feelings, new laughs and new tears are perfectly written to make the reader feel every emotion the characters experience. I can tell you that you will love and hate very much through this book. You will feel it in your bones. Way deep down in you belly and in your soul. Thank you for a beautifully rewrite on a series that has all the feel and I LOVE.

Beautiful love yet so much heartbreak💔

How many times can a heart break? 💔
How many tears have been shed? 😭

Loving Lucas is so natural, yet so hard!
Tessa deserves better but her heart wants what the heart wants. ❤️

This book portrays the perfect love with lovers who are not only on different pages but perhaps not even in the same book! There's a long road ahead to repair the damage that's been done, but if any author can redeem a bad boy, it's MJ Fields.

New Love continues with Lucas and Tessa navigating through challenges that no senior should endure. Lucas wanting to do right by Sadie has left Tessa feeling heartbroken. Lies are revealed and tragedy that will rock their world has these two on a path of fighting for a love at the truest form. My heart broke through this story. I love Lucas but man does he know how to rip a heart out. This is book 2 of the rollercoaster that will grab your heart!

This rewrite??? EVERYTHING. I'm so glad she did it this way. But Lucas? I just cant with him. How he ever gets it right... I will never know. He keeps making the same dumb mistakes. I want to like him...but these moves are just NOT cool. But... Im detrimined to see the end. I jumped ahead so I know they do get there... I just don't know how... I continue....get it people. LOL

Oh MJ Fields has put my heart through the ringer. When the bulb says highly emotional I should have prepared better.

These two have so many ups and downs but they are linked and that pull never fully goes away. I cannot wait to see what comes next. All I know is I will be one clicking that book too.

I am loving taking this journey with Lucas and Tessa. There are so many times I was on the verge of tears, it's an emotional roller coaster ride that I can't wait to finish. All the heartbreaking moments and all the laugh out loud moments will have you reading as fast as you can and not wanting to turn the page. ...more

I'm not sure how that boy could ever be trusted again. I managed to get past the mistakes he made in the last book, but things are getting a little ridiculous. I'll read the third one, but I'm not looking forward to it. I'd like to see how Tessa got it all wrong...hopefully.

5 Stars!

Tessa is a very good person but Lucas is not.... He tends to take advantage of her. Tess is very forgiving and makes you want to smack some sense into her. Lucas you just wanted to hit for all the pain he causes. I HATED Lucas by the end of this book. Not sure I will like him ever again...

The story of Tessa & Lucas continues…Talk about turbulent!

Their friendship tries to endure their chaotic relationship…

Hits keep coming that will either bring them together or tear them apart…

You want Lucas to do better but we’re now conditioned to know he’s more than likely to disappoint …

Young love…

High emotions…

It’s not pretty, but it’s raw and real…
