***BLOG TOUR STOP*** Jake Undone by Penelope Ward

2 Chicks and a Blog - Ashley's Review

Well let me just say, I am in LOVE with this book!  I did read Gemini (Penelope's first novel) and it was good, but this book ... this book is GREAT!  I loved the dynamic between Jake and Nina.  From the very first encounter, I felt a connection and the tension .. HOLY HELL the tension!!!  

These two characters are messed up in their own ways, making life more difficult than it is for the average Joe.  Nina has phobias coming out of the WAZOO and Jake wants to help her through them.  Little does he realize that while he's helping Nina overcome fears, he's freeing himself of his own insecurities.

There were a few times while I was reading that I had to go back and was like "uhhhh did I miss something?" but then BAM it smacked me in my face when I realized that Penelope was playing tricks with my mind.  Hmmmm this author knows how to throw a twist!

At the end of the story, I couldn't be happier.  Everything I wanted was served to me on a sliver platter.  Jake remained the sweet loving person he had been the entire book and Nina, well, that girl has the strength of an army.  I love my hero's strong and alpha and my heroines strong and feminine.  

This story had everything.  Ups, downs, twists, turns, angst and STEAMY sex scenes.

I'm going to go ahead and give this book 4.5 out of 5 "batshit crazy" stars.  

Please be advised I only deducted .5 stars for a few things that turned me off.  Nothing too heavy, just personal opinion.  Over all this book was great!  I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a sexy tattooed boy and a girl that doesn't know she's beautiful!!!
Nina Kennedy was alive…but not living…until she met him. Planes, trains, heights…you name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias. When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who’s pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she’s ever met. Behind Jake Green’s rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina’s outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn’t expecting to fall hard for her in the process. What Nina doesn’t realize, is that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it? Told in two parts from both Nina and Jake’s points of view, Jake Undone is a standalone story and a companion to the novel, Gemini.
