Love Somebody by Rachel Roasek is a great example of how a love triangle should be written. The three leads – Sam, Ros, and Christian – are all well-rounded and fully realized characters. The narration does a good job of focusing equally on all three, each one with their own internal battles they have to overcome. The story allows them to all shine on their own as much – if not more! – than when they were together.
I really enjoyed all three of their storylines and personal character arcs, and was pleasantly surprised by their development throughout this novel. When I first began Love Somebody, I actually didn’t find any of them likable and was worried this would affect my overall enjoyment of the book. But the writing did a very good job of changing my opinions about them, and by the end of the novel I definitely felt for each and every one. 💗

OMG, you guys-
I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! Like, literally, SO MUCH. 💖
Look, I may be biased because I am also a bi-Jewish girl, and so definitely saw myself in the leads and related to them immensely. But what’s wrong with that?! I’ve hardly have ever felt as seen in a book as I did while reading this one.
I found both Lara and Jasmine to be very easy to root for. My heart went out to both of them! I have definitely been where each of them were at different points in my life, and so it was impossible not to be hit with all those emotions again as I read this novel.
