Bren started to protest, but there was no use. Her friends were only trying to help. But they didn’t get it. And they never would. Not until they fell in love too.

Book: Luv@first Site by Tess Kindig, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2000
Luv @ First Site ( #5) (Repack) 
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 13-17
Subjects: Dating relationships, friendships, love
Summary: Bren is in love. She knows it as soon as she sees him. There’s absolutely no doubt in her mind. However, her friends have doubt – and lots of it. The guy acts like a jerk about every time Bren sees him. Not to mention how it’s making her act. Bren is totally loosing it over this guy. But nothing anyone says gets through to Bren. When they come up with a plan to get Bren matched up with him through the use of a computer generated match up program, the results don’t show what Bren was hoping for. So she makes some minor adjustments to get what she wants and in the process sets herself up for a disaster and gets her friends mad at her. Just how far will she go for a crush?
Notes: Bren and Jamie both have to learn the difference between a crush and true love. They get lost in and carried away by their emotions and make some extremely poor choices, tuning out the wisdom their friends attempt to give them. This book does an excellent job discussing what true love is versus what a crush is. The spiritual element is when they bring a passage of Scripture into their discussions.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
