Review: Discovering Us by Harper Bentley


Ellen has loved Jagger since she was five and he was seven when they kissed through the chain link fence at school. She’s had their wedding planned since she was twelve and is ready for a happily ever after with him, but life just isn’t that neat and tidy. Although they lost contact over the years, which broke her heart, during Jag’s senior year in high school, sophomore Ellen catches his eye once again and their friendship is back on. When things between them gradually develop into something more, Ellen wants to give herself completely to Jag, but he’s not so sure he wants to risk their relationship in taking things to the next level. When Jag is drafted to the Dodgers as the hot, new pitcher of the team, Ellen decides to go with him, transferring colleges and leaving her friends and family behind. But things get more and more complicated when busy schedules, a slimy agent and a supermodel disrupt their lives, which makes Ellen question whether they’ll ever get their perfect forever.


This book is a trilogy and “Discovering Us” is the first book. 

The story starts off with Ellen and Jagger as kids and goes on until they are in their twenties.

Ellen is awesome and super funny. I love her inner dialogues! I could understand where she was coming from when things with Jag became bad. I thought she was actually pretty understanding! If that was me, I would have probably smacked the hell out of Jag. Jag becomes a baseball superstar with a douchebag agent. I wanted to murder that guy and proceed to feed his remains to lions. I didn’t like Jag all that much at the end of the story. He was freakin stupid and he acted like an insensitive jerk. I wanted to shake him and tell him how stupid he was. You’ll understand why when you read towards the end of the book. 

This book ends with a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER.

I want to cry. I can’t believe I have to wait until February to read the next book. I am dying here. How can it just end like that?! 

5 stars!
