To Love Jason Thorn by Ella Maise
My rating: 4/5
Publication date: 3rd December 2015

Your childhood crush turned movie star. Now set to play the leading role in a book he doesn't know you wrote about him. 

Jason Thorn is a name everyone recognises. A famous actor with the big house, nice car and the bad boy reputation to match. But Olive knows him as her brother's childhood friend and the boy who broke her heart. 

But years later, he should be easy to avoid even if he's impossible to ignore. That is until Olive's first novel suddenly becomes a bestseller and the film rights get sold to the highest bidder. 

In an instant, she's sitting across the table from a team of executives and Jason Thorn himself. Jason hasn't long re-entered her life before she finds himself being whisked around in his car and - inexplicably - being talked into a fake dating plot to restore his damaged reputation.

Let's be honest, the brother's best friend/fake romance trope has been done to death but whilst reading a mentally heavier physical book, I needed something lighthearted. I gave To Love Jason Thorn a go on audio and it felt like perfect timing. It was just what I needed.

Olive Taylor first meets Jason Thorn when she is seven years old and he moves into their street. He becomes best friends with her older brother, he's always at their house, but following Jason's mother's death when he is a teen, he moves away. Olive's heart is broken as she always had an unrequited love for Jason.

Olive, now in her 20s in present day, is a bestselling author with one of her books being made into a movie. Jason Thorn is a famous actor with a bit of a reputation with the ladies. Who is cast as the male lead in Olive's adaptation? Of course, it's Jason! They are both happy to be back in contact again but when they are papped together looking very happy, Jason's publicist thinks that the best way to clean up his image is a fake marriage... I think we all know how this goes.

It has quite a bit of spice and it is just a nice, relaxing read. I really enjoyed it!
