Editorial Reviews

Review

"IF ONLY is a book that left me confused. Not because of the plot or characters, but why, oh, why isn't more New Adult written in this vein?? Pine clearly loves the English language and takes care to craft her words with love and heart. I designate this book as: HUG TO YOUR CHEST, SIGH, AND RUSH OFF TO READ E.M FORESTER GOOD." --Lia Riley, author of UPSIDE DOWN (ForeverRomance/Grand Central)
***
"This book hit me with all the feels. A.J. has a way of writing that is so relatable. You feel everything the characters do, as if you are right there with them, which is good because you'll want to be in Scotland with Jordan and Noah and Griffin and hilarious Elaina. It's a wonderful example of a New Adult, coming-of-age story and that's got a whole lot of heart." --Megan Erickson, author of MAKE IT COUNT (William Morrow/Harper Collins)

"LOVED, LOVED, LOVED. Add IF ONLY to your TBR list if you haven't already."--Lex Martin, author of DEAREST CLEMENTINE.

This is one of my favorite New Adult book. Smart, sweet and just saucy enough, I want to keep reading it over and over again.

Can't wait for more AJ Pine books. And can the next one have more Jordan? And Noah? And Griffin?

And more quotes from my favorite books? And more re-enactments of my favorite movie scenes?

And more Scotland? Because Scotland!

WRITE. MORE. BOOKS.

Please.

IF ONLY by AJ Pine is a book that left me confused. Not because of the plot or characters, but why, oh, why isn't more New Adult written in this vein?? The closest comp title I can come up with is Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl. Pine clearly loves the english language and takes care to craft her words with love and heart. When her characters discuss books, it's not to tick off a "we are in college so must discuss a generic class" box. Her characters LOVE their books. A ROOM WITH A VIEW, THE GREAT GATSBY and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING all play significant roles.

I honestly feel the need to reread A ROOM WITH A VIEW AND MUCH ADO, STAT.

The heroine, Jordan Brooks, spends her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland. I additionally appreciated the non-USA study abroad setting. Exchange trips are often period of seismic personal growth and this story was no exception.

There is bit of a love-triangle. Don't want to give away spoilers. Let's just say I'm keenly anticipating Book 2. Even if you don't generally like love-triangles, you will dig IF ONLY because Pine handles the plot with deft care. This was an impressive debut and I look forward to more from this author.

The description sold me. This sounded like something that would be so good. And while I did enjoy it, I have to say the first half of the book was so much better than the second half. If it weren't my kindle I was reading it on, this book may have gone sailing across the room. But we'll get to that later. The beginning of the book had me laughing quite a few times. The meeting between Griffin and Jordan was fantastic and they just meshed very well together. I actually fell a little hard for Griffin. Like, I wish I could've pulled Jordan out of the story and inserted myself in her place because he's the type of guy I'd want. So I'm a bit biased toward his character because in my eyes, he was damn near perfect.

But then Jordan runs in to Noah (literally) going to the loo. They get trapped together and it's one of the most exciting and thrilling meetings any two characters can have. Let me tell you. He's a good looking guy whose into literature (bonus for us booknerds) but come on, perfection doesn't just fall in your lap, right?

Do you know what I was bummed about? This book is about this American chick going overseas to Scotland for a year of school and she's in the middle of a love triangle with two American boys. COME ON! You're going to the land of the kilts and you're going to be hung up on two American boys?! Give me a man in a kilt and let me worry about falling in love with an American when I get back. But it's okay, really, because we have a man in a kilt who is like the best friend of the guys and an interest of the romantic sort to Jordan's roommate so at least we're not deprived of the kilt.

For a New Adult book, I found this to be pretty tame.

This was my first book that I've read by AJ Pine and it won't be the last. I love her writing style, and the way she can write out these amazing characters.

We meet Jordan while she's on a train traveling to Aberdeen University. While on the train, she meets Griffin, who happens to sit down beside her and starts up a conversation. She learns that Griffin is a man-whore. But he's the worst kind of man- whore, he has a heart. He tells her he isn't Mr. Right, he's Mr. Right now.

Jordan runs off to the loo, and after arriving she finds it occupied. She is standing outside the door when it opens and the occupant lands in her face. After the mishap, she comes back out of the loo to find that same boy just outside the door. It seems as though the doors to get back in the train car to their seats are jammed.

After he starts to have a panic attack she starts up a conversation and they realize they have a strong reaction to each other. Noah and Jordan hit it off while being stuck in that cubby area, and share a life-altering kids. Then Noah gets a text message on his phone and the spell is broken.

Jordan goes back to her seat with Griffin. They decide since they already know each other, they should do the tour together for the school the next day. Once they arrive Jordan comes face to face with Noah, and his girlfriend. Yep....you saw that right girlfriend. Jordan and Griffin start a relationship, one that is easy and no commitments, just go with the flow type relationship.

Noah confuses Jordan, he seems to want her and tries to explain his situation with her but Jordan doesn't want to hear it. She is hurt that the kiss meant something to her and it didn't him. We learn quickly that things are not always what they seem.
