Blue Love Blog Tour Banner 

Book: Blue Love (Love #1)
Author: MJ Fields
Genre: New Adult/College/Romance
Publication date: August 15th,2013

 In this New Adult / College, Coming of Age story Tessa Ross tries to fight her attraction to bad boy Lucas Links. He is hot, arrogant, and has a sexual past that most boys his age could only dream of, (If they even knew they could dream of such things). Lucas, the star quarterback seems to have it all, super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who literally stop just to watch him walk by. 

On the outside he appears to have it all. Tessa is a young woman who lives her life always doing what is right to make everyone else happy. She tries desperately to hold herself accountable to the demanding expectations of her family and everyone around her. 

Is Tessa as innocent as she appears? Is Lucas just a spoiled young man who seems to have what every male, and female wants? If you Love an emotional story that is full of spicy hot goodness. 

If you Love to follow a story from beginning until the bitter sweet end. If you are often left wondering what happened next... get your tissues and lip balm ready you are in for the read of your life. As we all know, you should never judge a book by it's cover.

My Review:

Blue Love is one of those books you have an opinion about, but you cannot assign a number/rating to it..I hope you get a clear view of it through my review..

First of all, the synopsis is not properly written…It doesn’t relate to the book’s true story and instead, it gives an entire different version of what the book could be..

Now about the book itself…

The story is intriguing, but I found the book too long..The irony of that is that the book had many oh so many gaps despite its length! By that I mean that there are many moments in the book when you don’t know how you got to that point..The characters change course of action or their emotional state from one moment to another without really explaining anything..I thought that maybe I skipped a page or two, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case…The story was very good, though. But something went wrong along the way..Too many ideas, perhaps..There was just too much going on and we didn’t have time to adjust or take a breath..

By mentally scrolling through the book, I see now that the first half or even a bit more than that was quite mediocre (I’m sorry to say..). The characters were acting well..umm.. out of character, so to speak..Teenagers acting like adults and behaving like parents while the parents were acting like guilty almost ready to cry people..It was really surreal…It reminded me of Gossip Girl, to be honest..However, the second half got much much better!! The writing was better and the story had found a good pace that kept us intrigued! I really liked the second half! The characters were better written, as well..Everything was actually much better in the second half!..

So, what I’m trying to say that if you can patiently read the first half, you will find a good book later on!!

Let’s talk about the characters a little bit…

There are many characters involved in the story and there are many different POVs that will make your head spin…So what I’m going to do is try to simplify things for you..

>>Tessa is our main female lead character, who falls in love with Lucas. Tessa is really a good person and an incredible friend and sister. In the first half, we saw her struggling very much with her parents’ situation and she began behaving in a non-Tessa-like way. Later on that kind of blew out and she changed into her normal sweet personality..(Please don’t ask how that happened…) She’s an honest, kind and beautiful young girl, who takes care of everyone..

>>Lucas is our main male lead character, who is very lost. He adores Tessa and that love is his savior. He tries to become a better person for her because he wants to be worthy of her. He certainly tries really hard and he succeeds in the most part anyway. He makes mistakes along the way, but at least he’s honest about them. He doesn’t hide or make excuses. He’s really trying and I hope in the next book he figures out how to be his true self and leave all his past self behind him..

Like I said, there are many characters and many POVS..We have Tessa and Lucas’s friends, who are decent and good. We have lots of ex-es who are quite crazy..We also have their parents, who don’t really act like parents…

In conclusion, if you can patiently read the first half, you will find a good book later on!!

Character Interview:I'm very happy to introduce you Mr.Lucas Links himself!!!!

Welcome Lucas to my blog! Thank you for coming! How are you doing?

Thanks for asking me to be here. I’m well, it’s a windy cold day here in Upstate NY…

How did you feel when you first saw Tessa? What were you thinking? Please keep in mind that my audience is mostly women and they will judge your answer..**chuckling softly..

Well, being that my audience is women I will try to answer this as truthfully and tactfully as possible. I saw her. I saw her physical self you know? Screw it, the “Girls” caught my eyes immediately. (Don’t judge too harshly we all see physical first. Even you ladies --I know this first hand.) Then she covered them things up, real quick. I saw her little frown and that she completely avoided eye contact. I was even further attracted to her because of that. (In a very caveman way)
Then I saw her at her family’s farm and again at the pond. I saw her, really saw who Tessa Ann Ross was, right then and there I knew ‘I was falling for her.’…

I’m sorry for the next question, but it has been bugging a lot..We all see that you love Tessa..I know it without a doubt..How did you cheat on her twice? Why?..I know there were some other umm..circumstances involved in your actions, but seriously Lucas?

I absolutely love that girl, everything about her. She loves me too, she always will.
I fucked up, bad.
It’s very uncomfortable to try to explain ‘feelings’ to anyone. The only person I’ve had those conversations with is Tessa so excuse me if don’t give you exactly what your looking for in an answer.
I didn’t know love until I met her, not in the true sense of the word.
To the outside world I have it all, to me I had it all. When you aren’t raised with expectations to hold yourself up to you kind of just skate through life. 
My first fuck up was an honest to God “What the hell just happened” moment. I got fucked up after one of Mom’s ordeals. I didn’t ask for it, didn’t even realize the impact of it till it was too late.
That moment changed everything for me. I knew I slaughtered her and I knew I needed to fix it, like she deserved it to be fix. Not just a duct tape fix either. I needed to dig deep and fix me first, to give her a better me. And I did that.
~The second mistake, well here’s were she and I don’t see eye to eye. We were done. I knew I would not and could not be who she deserved, ever again. I was spiraling out of control my heart had been ripped to shreds and the pain was more intense than I could have ever imagined. I reached for a quick escape, got fucked up and then Sadi showed up. The damage was already done and I said fuck it, literally and figuratively. Do I regret it? More now than you could ever imagine….

Well they say karma is a bitch..You certainly met her..What were you thinking when you saw Tessa with Toby aka GI Joe (laughing on that one) and Ben or even Matt the pizza boy? How did it feel?

~LOL, I deserve that Karma crack and I sure did…several times. When I saw Tessa with Toby I was pissed! She was choosing this, I didn’t choose a blow job in the hot tub and she was such a stubborn ass that I wasn’t given the chance to explain. I fucking hated him!
The shallow part of me was pissed that Toby would probably be nailing her first. Yeah I know such a man but honest to God I tried to do right by her. She didn’t make it all that easy either, her sweet little ass was as full of ‘naughty’ as I was.
When I was in the camp listening to her and Toby I was ready to go full out freak if GI Joe touched what was supposed to be mine. It was bad enough he kissed her, at that point I knew it wasn’t her style she was trying to make me jealous. After hearing them I knew that part of her was safe…for now.
I know Tessa so Pizza boy is laughable. She wasn’t into him. However, I know guys and that little bastard wanted her which of course pisses me off.
Ben. Just the mention or sound of his name pissed me off. It’s like nails on a chalkboard still after all this timtime. Yeah he was a good looking kid, talented I guess…although I was better. .

And based on the previous question, which one do you fear the most? Which one do you consider a serious rival?

Both Toby and Ben had known Tessa for years so hell yeah I struggled with both. They knew who she was. I also knew Ben only saw her on occasion and she didn’t even remember him so he was (at this point) a no hitter in my book. I also knew she still loved me.
So to answer the question, Toby was the hardest to deal with. Aside from him wanting not just now, but a future with her was blood boiling. That passed and sent me straight into panic mode because I knew he actually loved her and had for a long time. I knew he would be real good for her too, he wasn’t a fuck up like me. Toby Green was actually someone (that if I removed myself from the equation) would take care of Tessa. After all that has been said and done, she deserved that kind of love and if it isn’t from me I would choose him for her.
Fuck that hurt…

You said that you wanted to get into the Syracuse University. What would you like to study?

Hell yes I want SU, I’ve been a fan of the Orangeman forever, it would be so damn cool to be one of them! It would keep me close to my Mom, (she kind of needs that), my new responsibilities, and Tessa of course, in whatever capacity I could be.
Fingers crossed I’d be playing football and I would study Business management, kind of in my blood…

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to get through my senior year. It hasn’t been an easy one and there are times when I really don’t give a fuck what happens. My best friend Tommy is my anchor so I’ll be fine. At this point I want her. I need her. I miss the hell out of her when she’s not near me. When she is it's either killing me or making me thank God for moments I can be…

A more serious question now, but I would like your honesty..How do you feel about Sadi and what happened with her?

~Shit I knew this was gonna come up. Sadi’s a fucking head trip. That one was the only one who didn’t take the hint when I said, “We’re done.” She kept coming back and well shit happened. I had a glimpse of what the future was going to be and embraced it. She turned the tables on me which threw me into a place I had never been.  Now I know she’s even more fucked up than I would have ever guessed and unfortunately I’m fucked for life because of it. But again I’ll embrace it, because that’s who I know I can be. That’s what Tessa has shown me…

We all know Sadi and her oh so sweet personality…So how can you trust her regarding that delicate issue? I mean, the first thing a man asks in these situations is if it’s his and you never did. Why is that?

I was happier than I had ever been in my life. Tessa loved me even after she knew everything about me. I loved her knowing there was no way I could ever not love her.
When Sadi approached me I felt like everything good had just been snatched from my life. That I deserved the blackness I had just recently been pulled from. She had documentation from the same doctor’s office I had taken her to, I knew I had been with her and up until that point she had not been with anyone else. I saw her all the time, there was no question.
History repeating itself, I was brought into this world under similar circumstances…

I know I asked you some difficult questions, Lucas. So I would like to end our interview with a happy one..What is your happiest memory? When did you feel the happiest?

Easy answer, the night John brought me from the hospital to the farm. She was so pissed! (Which is a part of her that gets me every time, her little tantrums make me love her even more …anyways) When I saw her blue eyes light up when she realized all the things she had assumed were not even close to the reality she had come up with my heart was whole again. Living with her family at the very beginning, I finally felt like I was part of a family. I felt the love they had for each other and for me immediately…

Thank you Lucas for coming today! It was a pleasure to meet you and chat with you! Please give a hug to Tessa from me, if she allows it, that is…**chuckling again

Will do, she’ll allow it. Regardless of what’s in our future she loves me anyway
Thanks for having me…

The road is long, but when you truly love someone does it ever really end? Look for lots more of me and Tessa, it’s a once in a lifetime thing you know. Take care…LL

Author bio: 
 I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book). Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" I was able to take care of him. Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members. Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts). Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful. I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow. I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way. I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.
