To Love Jason Thorn by Ella Maise [REVIEW]

Jason Thorn… My brother’s childhood friend.

Oh, how stupidly in love with that boy I was. He was the first boy that made me blush, my first official crush. Sounds beautiful so far, right? That excitement that bubbles up inside you, those famous butterflies you feel for the very first time—he was the reason for them all. But, you only get to live in that fairytale world until they crush your hopes and dreams and then stomp on your heart for good measure. And boy did he crush my little heart into pieces.

After the stomping part he became the boy I did my best to stay away from—and let me tell you, it was pretty hard to do when he slept in the room right across from mine.

When tragedy struck his family and they moved away, I was ready to forget he ever existed.

Now he is a movie star, the one who makes women of all ages go into a screaming frenzy, the one who makes everyone swoon with that dimpled smile of his. Do you think that’s dreamy? I certainly don’t think so. How about me coming face to face with him? Nope still not dreamy. Not when I can’t even manage to look him in the eye.

Me? I’m Olive, a new writer. Actually, I’m THE writer of the book that inspired the movie he is about to star in on the big screen. As of late, I am also referred to as the oh-so-very-lucky girl who is about to become the wife of Jason Thorn.

Maybe you’re thinking yet again that this is all so dreamy? Nope, nothing dreamy going on here. Not even close.


This is my first Ella Maise book. I’ll be honest, I was drawn by the cover. When I read “move star” in the premise, I was HOOKED.

If you are a fan of Hollywood Dirt and Love Unscripted, then To Love Jason Thorn is for you.

Olive has been in love with her brother’s best friend since the first day she met him when she was eight years old. She said she would marry him.  Jason is the new kid that moved into town, not having the best home life, he spends most of his time at Olive’s house.

The beginning is SUPER cute and it’s not that long. You get a sweet meet-cute between Olive and Jason and then years later Jason moves to LA. A part of me wanted more this because I found Olive adorable and Jason so sweet, but I was happy we got to the good stuff.

Now, Olive is a writer and her book is picked up for a movie. Guess who is going to be the leading star? I know, I couldn’t get enough over this. I was grinning ear to ear while I was reading. I really liked how strong Olive was. She of course still has a crush on Jason, but she understands she’s a nobody and he’s this famous actor. I loved her interactions with him because she did everything she could to not be in the same room with him. It cracked me up and tickled my tummy.

Jason doesn’t see Olive as his best friend’s little sister anymore. Oh no, she has curves and a body. He wants to get to know her more, but she makes it very hard for him. I love it when the Hero pursues the Heroine!  I liked that Jason wanted to get to know Olive, but it wasn’t insta-lust. There’s plenty of character development and I liked that they got to know each other again.

To Love Jason Thorn is an adorable, sweet-light hearted meaty read. It’s a heavily descriptive book, but the author gets to the point and paints a pretty picture for you.  There’s so much more that happens in this book and as if it wasn’t possible, it becomes cutter. You will just have to read the book and find out.

I'm an avid reader. Therefore, a big dreamer. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face, and of course sometimes making you crush on fictional characters. If I can manage to do even one of those things for a reader, I will be a happy writer.

I can't even begin to describe how exciting it is to give life to new characters and fall for them. It's a different kind of addiction.

I'm still searching for my own happy ending. Until that happens, I'll live vicariously through my own characters.
