Review: Love Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #4) by Jillian Dodd

Love Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #4)

My mom says that you can’t love someone until you learn to love yourself.
So even though Vincent is getting more and more scary.
Even though he’s doing a nationwide search for me.
I’m going to learn to love myself.

Well, I’m going to try.

Mostly, I want a boy to love me.

But which one?

Dawson - The gorgeous boy who made a mistake, but whose molten lava kisses and steaminess I can’t freaking resist.

Aiden - The God of all Hotties, who is practically infused with love potion. Who I thought liked me, but now says he wants to be my friend.

Brooklyn - The boy that first stole my heart. Who has always loved me. Well, until the whole cabana incident.

I mean, it was bad enough when there was sort of a love triangle, but now that I’m talking to B again, it’s like I’m in a love rectangle, or a rhombus, or something.

Oh, and did I mention Cooper Steele?
The new soccer coaching, health teaching, tattooed hunk?
Who Garrett sent to school to guard my body.
I mean, be my bodyguard.

But back to loving me.
I should forget about boys and worry about me.
Love me.
Like, eventually.

Quote:  Maybe she's right.  Maybe it isn't lovesickness.  It's ping ponging, which is probably something like motion sickness.  Only it causes you to question your feelings, and that makes you feel sick all the time.  Like a never-ending hangover.  That's what this is  It's a hottie hangover

My Thoughts:  I love, love, love this series.  It is one of my favorites.  We met Keatyn in Stalk Me, and have continued with her on her journey, watching her grow in Kiss Me, Date Me, and now Love Me, and what a ride it has been.  I have devoured every book thus far, and I am counting the days until the next one releases. You can’t help but love Keatyn.  The story is told from her point of view, and trust me, you won’t ever be bored.  Love Me picks up where Date Me left off - and if you read Date Me, the last words were panty dropping melt your heart awesome, while making you want to scream and say “I need the next book now.” As you have probably gathered from the synopsis, or already know if you have read the series, there are multiple guys in Keatyn’s life.  Typically, I am not a fan of love triangles, but The Keatyn Chronicles are the exception to the rule in every way, shape, and form regarding this.  Jillian Dodd has written the series in such a way that it just works perfectly. In fact, it is an integral part of the story, and Keatyn works it well, because she is just….Keatyn.  

In Love Me, we see a lot of growth in Keatyn.  She is trying to find out who she is, while at the same time having to pretend she is someone that she’s not, because of that pissant Vincent whose head I would like to pinch off.  Then you’ve got the guys all vying for her attention.  There is the hot, sexy, smoldering Dawson, then you have Brooklyn getting back in the game and playing it very well, and then there is Aiden, “The God of All Hotties,” and there is a lot of hot going on with the Hottie God in Love Me.  Just when Keatyn thinks she might be figuring things out, something happens and she is back to square one all over again.  Of course she has her best buds Riley and Dallas who always have her back, especially Riley, who is a fierce protector of Keatyn, as well as being her best friend.  Oh, and we get to see more of the youngest Johnson brother, Braxton, and he may just wind up being my favorite of all.  I can’t forget to mention Cooper Steele either, who is Keatyn’s undercover bodyguard and he is the type of guy you would pay big bucks to guard your body.  There are quite a few other secondary characters that play a part in the story, all of which are fun...even Whitney, who it would be fun to slap.  

Another thing that amazes me is how Keatyn is able to be friends with so many people, especially guys, and gets along with them all so well.  She and Cam are even texting in Love Me, and wait until you see what Dallas pulls. He surprised me.  Keatyn did have a few bratty moments in this book, but it was all part of her growing process.  I have to say that for the most part, I thought Aiden handled her very well, and we see that he isn't perfect himself.  It’s not a bed of roses for Keatyn in Love Me, because with growth, comes growing pains, and she deals with quite a bit of that.  The ending left me clutching my heart and desperate to know what happens next.  The Keatyn Chronicles is fun, original, entertaining, and if you haven’t started it, hurry and get a copy.  You will then become one with the rest of us addicts in our quest to discover who Moonboy is - the guy she ends up with in the end, when it is all said and done.  Meanwhile, the joy is in the journey, and this is one trip you won’t want to miss.  

Stalk Me, Kiss Me, Date Me, Love Me, Hate Me, and Come and Get Me.

  1. I am so glad this series is still going strong for you Ellen! That doesn't always happen and it is refreshing to see. Great review! :)

  2. For some reason, I thought of this series as a little too immature and scattered for my taste. I only read the 1st book so Idk if it gets better or not, but I'm glad you're enjoying it.
