What happens when you fall for the perfect guy...twice...in one day? Brenna Blixen spent her freshman year homeschooling in Denmark; now that she's back in the States, she's determined to make her sophomore year unforgettable. And by unforgettable, she imagined awesome classes, fun friendships, and maybe a little romance. What she got was a whole lot of romance, and all at once. The same day that dark, brooding Saxon Maclean charmed her with his killer good looks and whip-smart wit, Jake Kelly stole her breath away with his heart-wrenching smile and intelligent, thoughtful focus. But Saxon is a proud player who makes it clear that he doesn't know why he can't get Brenna off of his mind and out of his system, and Jake's sweet and humble attitude hides a secret past life that might be darker and more complex than Brenna is willing to deal with. Complicating the matter is the fact that Saxon and Jake were once best friends and are now arch-enemies...and the more Brenna finds out about their connection to each other, the more intrigued and worried she becomes. Between keeping the peace with her lovingly over-protective parents, designing t-shirts for her high school's rising punk band, keeping up her grades in classes split between academic and technical high school, and running the track like a maniac, Brenna has enough to worry about with out juggling two guys who make her heart thud and drive her crazy all at once. She has to make a choice, but how is she supposed to do that when giving her heart to one of them might mean breaking the other's?

What I thought

Everyone knows I'm not a fan of love triangles. I usually tend to pick the guy who won't win the girl. But in this one, it was more than just two guys hoping to win over a girl. It was more about two guys who shared a history and are trying to come to terms with each other. And it just so happens they both like the same girl.

I liked Saxton and Jake. They were both some good characters. I have to admit, I usually end up not liking the other guy. Usually because I'm so wrapped up in the one I really want to win. But with this, I liked them both. I had hoped the best for both.

Double Clutch was a nice and fun read. Definitely worth picking it up. I'm glad there will be more (at least the ending leaves room for more) and I hope to see much more of these characters!
