If you have ears, you’ve heard Robin Thicke’s hit “Blurred Lines.” If you’ve had any amount of spare time in the past few days and have access to the internets, you’ve heard about Thicke’s performance at the VMA’s with Miley Cyrus. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, congratulations! You must have looked past the headlines on CNN’s main page in order to read about “secondary” news like Egypt or Syria. You can find a video of the performance here.

If you’ve been on Facebook or Twitter with any kind of regularity over the past few days, you’ve probably heard countless friends or followers sounding off on any number of objectionable things about the performance. Undoubtedly, 99% of things written about it throw around words like “obscene”, “offensive”, and the like.

Review – Love Me – The Keatyn Chronicles #4 by Jillian Dodd.

It’s no secret that I am in love with this totally awesome series by Jillian Dodd – and LOVE ME delivers another shot of awesomeness that leaves you begging for more.


In LOVE ME Keatyn feels caught up in a love triangle – scratch that – ‘love Rhombus’ as she tries to decide if she will try to go back to the way things were with sexy sweet Dawson or if she will try to make things work with Hottie God Aiden and she examines her feelings for her first love Brooklyn.

All 3 guys pull super sweet, devious or sexy antics that make her crazy and make it so hard for her to choose. (And Jillian successfully pulls us along in Keatyn’s turmoil – there were times I wasn’t sure who to love and who to be ‘mad’ at!)

As Vincent steps up his search for Keatyn, it becomes harder than ever for Keatyn to live life truthfully as she has to deny part of who she really is so that she wont be found or recognised.

The situation that Keatyn faces being stalked by Vincent and not being able to have control over her life or be truthful with her friends is taking a toll on Keatyn and she feels frustrated and sometimes like she is being torn apart – to compensate she tries to use sex as a means of having some kind of control over her body and her life and as a means of intimacy when she cannot be truthful with the ones she loves.

As Keatyn realises that she must first Love herself, she works through the differences between sex, lust and love as she examines herself and the choices that she has made and ultimately begins to grow and realise that the best choice she can make right now is to choose herself.

Words cannot describe how much I loved this installment in the series and I can’t wait for the next release.
