Every time I read one of Jennifer’s books, I’m blown away. Truly. Reading the Lakefield series in succession, I saw Jennifer’s way with words go from great to amazing. In Mick I was left broken, with my pieces stitched back together, left hanging by a thread. I connected with Mick on a level I hadn’t with anyone in her other books. Although Brock will always be mine (hah S Van Horne had to give up her boys so I’m claiming him), Mick broke my heart.

We all got snippets of Mick in the last of the Lakefield series, though you don’t have to read those books before this one I HIGHLY SUGGEST IT, but that was before he was broken. We got little bits of the cold man, but that was before his soul was left withered and dried up. There was nothing he could do, nothing anyone could do, to breathe life into his life. There was no light to his darkness, no saint to his sinner.

…Until Alisa stumbles into his lap. From the first, they have a pull towards each other. As much as Mick wants to stay away, he can’t. And he doesn’t want to. Besides the fact, Alisa wouldn’t let him. She may have been sweet, choosing to see the good in everyone, but she got what she wanted too. And what she wanted was Mick.

This was darker, grittier, bloodier than I had been expecting (I’m lying, I totally stalk Jennifer’s updates so I was expecting the darkness), but it was so amazingly well written, you end up rooting for the bad guys. Because this isn’t like Lakefield, where the guys toe the line and sometimes blur it to their advantage. Mick is a bad guy. Alisa sees it, accepts it, loves him despite the demons that hold him back.

Everything about this book felt natural. The progression, the emotion, the bonds that were created. It was the definition of “page-turner”. If you’ve read my other reviews of Jennifer’s books, you know I dubbed her the Queen of Plot Twists… she doesn’t disappoint here either. Every time you think you’ve got something figured out, she twists it up on you, leaving you like one of Pavlov’s dogs, drooling at the sight of a new release.

And if you’re looking for a dark book that can make your glasses fog… look no further. Alisa and Mick burn the sheets in ways that had me reaching for a little paper fan in the middle of the night.

This book has it ALL.

I love the Chase

Did I just make a reference to Garbage? Yes, yes I did.

I received a copy of Run, Hide, Break & Chase, in exchange for honest reviews. Here’s my fouth one… Damage releases April 24th!

blurb
chase.jpgAndi had it all figured out.

She had a sweet job for the summer working at a luxury hotel and her brother was happy. That’s all she really needed and that’s all she wanted to focus on.

Her horrible past was way behind her and she was making a better life for them both. Even if it was built on a lie, it was better than the one they had. She gave up chasing her dreams long ago.

She would keep their secret. To protect her brother. To protect herself.

Then he showed up.

He’s out to catch a criminal and asking for her help.

Brock, the genius — He wasn’t modest about it.
Brock, the incredibly inquisitive — He wasn’t going to give up.
Brock, the guy with the GQ looks and bad boy reputation — He wasn’t denying it.

He was asking for the truth about her past that she couldn’t give. If she told him it could risk everything.

But Brock is in this to win and it’s hard to deny those stormy green eyes and kinky whispers in her ear. Chasing her seems to be his new priority and he’s playing dirty. If he caught her what would he do?

He may be digging into Andi’s life but this controlling and complex alpha male has some secrets of his own.

Lies and secrets. Everyone told them and had them. How far would they go to keep them?

**Full-length standalone romance. 80,000+ words. No cheating or cliffhangers with a Happily Ever After!

YES! The references to committing their other half is back! Let’s be honest, if you haven’t considered seriously murdering and or committing someone to a mental hospital, do you really love them?

Ever since Andi slapped Brock in Break, I have been looking forward to their story. Brock’s obsession with keeping tabs on everyone and everything made for a good mental patient- I mean love interest. It’s bad enough to have an alpha that is obsessed with your safety and has psychopathic tendencies, but add in a tech genius and what do you get? Madness. And I loved every second of it.

Brock and Andi have chemistry off the charts, and they’re not afraid to give the other one hell. Andi has a rough past, one that she is hiding from if only to protect her brother, and Brock is hell bent and determined to find out what that past is. For someone who knows everything, can crack every puzzle, he has a hard time cracking Andi. So he goes about it the old fashioned way- seduction. Andi fights hard to trust Brock, but the nature of his job means he’s kept secrets. Secrets that affect their relationship.

This book didn’t have as many plot twists as the previous one, thank God because I don’t know if my heart could handle it, to be honest. There were still a few, and they were good ones, but makes you question whether Brock really is insane or if he’s got the right idea. I love that Andi puts Brock through hell, but Brock puts her through just as much. He is known as a player and flirt, but from the moment he met Andi, he stopped.

Are we going to see more of Brock’s dungeon though? Because I really like the dungeon…

The Lakefield crew is as crazy as ever, but they stick together. I cannot WAIT for Damage to be released in three weeks. Each of these books has gotten better and better, and Jennifer’s wit continues to keep me laughing the whole time.

Bend me, Break me.

Did I just make a reference to Garbage? Yes, yes I did.

I received a copy of Run, Hide, Break & Chase, in exchange for honest reviews. Here’s my third one…

blurb
break.jpgEveryone has their breaking point.

Kaitlyn has had a crush on Dr. Logan Matthews for months. His dark hair, blue eyes and fit body are just some of the reasons why he’s the perfect guy.

The problem is he seems to want nothing to do with Kaitlyn. When they have bumped into each other, he’s gruff, overbearing and he seems to cause the worst luck for her.

Until one day when everything seems to go unnaturally wrong in her life.

Now he’s sending naughty pictures, playing with her, and acting more interested than ever. Although her friends find the encounters they’ve had funny and her best friend tells her to just have fun, there’s something confusing about his attention.

He says they’re just being friendly but they’re moving into the “more than friendly” zone. Everything should be great. Right?

Things aren’t always what people see on the surface. The greatest obstacles they face may be the ones that neither of them see coming.

**Full-length standalone romance. 67,000+ words. No cheating, or cliffhangers with a Happily Ever After!

Holy Plot Twist Batman! So far, this book has been my favorite in the series (though I still need to read Chase!) I absolutely adored Kaitlyn (obviously since she’s named after me even though it’s spelled differently *hair flip*). She was sweet and loving, but also had strength I envy. She is one of the most caring women in the books, and tries not to purposely drive everyone around her insane, but she stands her ground when she’s mistreated.

Kate and Logan’s story actually starts in Hide. We can see their chemistry, see the snippets that there’s something wrong with Logan, but we don’t know what’s going on. Kate thinks Logan hates her, but he’s actually ridiculously obsessed with her, in all the best ways. However, he’s got his own issues to deal with, which includes dealing with his body after the incident in Run. With dealing with his pain comes an addiction… and addiction that numbs him to most everything except Kate.

One of my favorite things about this book is the interactions between these two via text… which also comes with more Brock! And Logan risks those texts being seen by Brock, so you know it’s serious. The humor is as present as it is in the previous two books, without as many references to murdering and hiding the body of mental patients. Which, in my opinion, is a shame.

I love how innocent Kate is, but still willing to forgive someone when they deserve it. i love how she’s so innocent she doesn’t understand why Logan doesn’t like her in short dresses. I love how Logan does his own groveling. I love basically everything about this book, from beginning to end.

Except there’s one plot twist I didn’t like. You’ll know when you get there. I’ve complained to the author already, but I’m trying not to go all Mercy/Stephen King on her to change it.

You can Run…

I received a copy of Run, Hide, Break & Chase, in exchange for honest reviews. Here’s my first one…

blurb

runjennifervesterOliva wouldn’t say she was paranoid. Maybe she read a few too many books on true crime, but it was all in the name of solid research. She was comfortable and cautious after a tragic event in her past. It worked for her.

At least it had, until she met Aiden Latimer. He was tall, muscular and did that eyebrow arch thing like a pro. The billionaire spotted her, and her life has been anything but comfortable ever since.

He was bossy and annoying. He even has a problem with her cussing. He’s done his own research on her and she’s convinced he even bugged her house.

She wasn’t prepared for her attraction to him, much less his ardent attention. Their worlds seemed so far apart that she was ready to end it on day one.

But things never go quite like you plan with an alpha male type.

Now, she’s being bossed around by Aiden, trying not to get into trouble with her best friend and dealing with a psycho, stalker ex-boyfriend!

The question is, when things finally do hit the fan, will she face her fears or run?

Have you had a good laugh lately? If not, then check out this book. Seriously. Olivia’s mind had me cracking up the whole time. I had a first hand experience with her brain and I wish I could have some more.

Run is the story of Olivia running from Aiden Latimer. Literally. She ran from him at the bar, the car, after their kiss. Aiden is your typical alpha with a little extra “stop cussing before I punish you”. I’m not sure if it’s insta-love between the two, but it’s instant awareness, instant attraction, and instant craziness. There’s danger, laughs, sarcasm, and a lot of wondering if the stranger kidnapping her is a serial killer. Oh and a lot of stalking. But if you’re gonna die, might as well do it in a Bentley or a Benz right?

Olivia has legitimate reason to be wary of the super-bossy Aiden. Her ex-boyfriend was not kind to her. And by not kind I mean the absolute worst. Olivia’s roommate, Julia, and her mother conspire against Liv and trying to push away a potential date (though if this was real life I would probably be screaming at her to RUN THE OTHER WAY. but it’s not real life so I can yell at her to stop running away from him.)

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was full length- but it was a quick easy read. There was danger and excitement, as well as super steamy scenes, had some hilarious text messages, and guys that were like family to each other. It was definitely 4 great stars.

My issue with it was my issue with basically all heroines that have super hot, super rich boyfriends with awesome security: why do you try to ditch them?!? I’ve never needed security (knock on wood) and I definitely like to feel safe, so I don’t know why, when you get text messages from legit stalkers that you know are trying to hurt you, that you DITCH THE SECURITY TEAM. I understand independence and crap, but seriously stop running from the guys trained to take care of ya.

That’s my pet peeve though… maybe not everyone’s…

This was my first Jennifer read and I can’t wait to read the other three in the Lakefield series… Go add this to your TBR! Like… now! And do you have Kindle Unlimited? Well it’s free on KU!
