New Release ~ 4 Stars for Want You by Jen Frederick!

 

WANT YOU
By
New York Times Bestselling Author Jen Frederick

Summary:

Bitsy

I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.

Leka

I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4 Stars!

Jen Frederick mixes it up with a slightly taboo, romantic suspense that was engrossing and amazing!

I don’t want to to give anything away, so this review will be brief, but know this… the blurb gives a good synopsis, but there is so much more to this story!

The book is written in two parts, which I feel was the perfect way to write this. The entire book takes place over the span of many years, which allows for the development of Leka and Bitsy’s relationship at the perfect pace. There is love and family and loyalty and danger in this book. It is not what it seems, yet exactly as it is. If that makes any sense at all.

I really enjoyed this read and if the prologue was foreshadowing, then I am crossing my fingers for more from Leka and Bitsy’s world!

My Review:

5 Stars!!

 

I love this series!  Great characters with great stories!  Unwritten is Adams Rees’s story and it might just be my favorite of all the guys’.

 

The Long and Short

Adam Rees, son of a retired rock star, is seeking his own fame and fortune in the music business.  He’s had a series of bands in the past, but none that has worked as well as his current one, especially with their new lead singer, Davis.  Landry’s had a bad couple of years, what with the stalker and all that.  She is slowly trying to get her life back with the help of her brother, Davis, who is the new lead singer for an up and coming band.  Adam sees Landry across the crowded bar during one of their shows and he wants her.  When he finds out she’s Davis’s sister, he has to decide if she is worth it, because Davis is a great addition to the band and with him success could be in their grasp.

What I liked…

Pretty much everything.  Hee hee!  No, really.  I had a hard time finding anything I didn’t like.  All of the characters are great.  Frederick doesn’t rush Landry and Adam’s relationship and doesn’t drag it out either.  She somehow manages to find just the right momentum to move the book along.  Adam is a great book hero.  He is book boyfriend material for sure.  He is just tortured enough to care and so swoony you might want your own Adam.  Landry is pretty great herself.  She is just this side of nerdy and she starts off a little timid, but once this girl finds her voice, you’re going to want to stand behind her and shout “girl power.”  Oh, and let’s talk the band.  Why in all the reviews I have read does no one really address the hilarity that is Rudd?  Ok, I do get it.  This isn’t his book.  Right, but he adds to this story and provides some pretty fun comic relief!

What I didn’t like…

See above.  I honestly had a hard time trying to remember what I might not have liked.  ***thinking***  Nope.  Can’t really think of anything.  OK, maybe the only thing I had a bit of a hard time with was Adam’s seemingly unnecessary reluctance to help the band move forward despite the rest of the band wanting to.  Vague, I know.  But, you wouldn’t want me to spoil you, now would you?

Overall…

Overall, this is a fantastic book with great characters, rock stars, a swoony hero and a great forbidden romance storyline!  I highly recommend!

New Release! 4.5 Star Review of Downed by Jen Frederick

DOWNED

SUMMARY

He’s the guy no one likes…

Despite winning two national championships, JR “Ace” Anderson was sent packing from his old school after losing the trust of his coach. At Southern U, he has a second chance to prove that his college legacy isn’t endless debauchery and selfishness. But his reputation precedes him, and his teammates offer a chilly welcome in the locker room. The one person who is willing to accept him is the very woman he should stay away from—his new coach’s daughter.

She’s the girl everyone loves…

Bryant Johnson’s only goal in life is to make others happy, even at her own expense. One look at her father’s new star quarterback, and she knows that Ace is her next project. With a reputation for being a “jerk whisperer”, Bryant has spent her last three years at college reforming sorry behavior and turning bad boys into the best boyfriends ever. In Ace, though, she’s met with surly resistance and a sizzling attraction she doesn’t expect. Fixing this wounded warrior will be her biggest challenge yet. Not falling for him will be even harder.

Between her big heart and his damaged one, a battle is ensuing. In this game of love, every defense will crumble.

My Review:

4/5 Stars!!!

You are going to LOVE Ace!!

Downed is book three in the Gridiron series by Jen Frederick. I read them out of order…I know, silly me. I actually read book two first, then went back and read book 1 after I discovered the magic that is this series. While these can all be read as standalones, they are pretty interconnected. That does not mean you have to start at the beginning, but eventually, you should read them all. OK. PSA over. 🙂

Downed features JR “Ace” Anderson, former quarterback of the Western State football team who was unceremoniously benched after he made a “little mistake.” He was eventually offered a scholarship to play his senior year at Southern, which is where this book takes place. If you have read the other books, the series has now moved to a different university. I wasn’t sure I was going to like that, but it was the right move. The boys at Western kinds of ran their course, but Downed opens the door for books for new characters (Ty needs a book, Jen. wink wink). Ace is brash, cocky and an unapologetic asshole. He has some issues he keeps ignoring them like any man would do. He meets Bryant, the coach’s sweet, southern belle of a daughter with the permagrin and the ever present positive attitude. She is the complete opposite of Ace. Suddenly, Ace is strong armed (sort of) into a relationship with Bryant. Okay, so that’s not really how it starts, but you will have to read how it really goes down. There is a little strong-arming, though, but not in the way you are thinking.

Ace and Bryant are awesome characters. Complete opposites that fit together like a puzzle. Their interactions are sweet and at times hysterical. Ace is a dirty talker, which Bryant does not approve of. Some of the things she said to him had me crying with laughter! You can’t help but love them both.

Downed is a little bit funny, a little bit sports and a whole lot of happy goodness and you will love it!

New Release Review: Revealed to Him by Jen Frederick

51j6ZIQB8CL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Title:  Revealed To Him

Series: Kerr Chronicles #3

Author:  Jen Frederick

Publication Date: November 3, 2015

Genre:  Romantic Suspense, Contemporary

Pages:  262 pages

Rating:  4/5 stars

Synopsis: Handsome and tough Jake Tanner, a veteran and the owner of a successful security firm, never lets his past hold him back. Despite his prosthetic hand and foot, women swoon over him—and with him between the sheets. Yet Jake feels bored and restless…until he’s hired to protect a beautiful writer whose life is in terrible danger.

Self-imprisoned by the fear of the anonymous stalkers who threaten her life, video-game writer Natalie Beck now only dreams of the world outside her pink-bedecked apartment. Trusting people again is off-limits. But the more time Jake spends with her, the more his professional commitment evolves from simple duty to scorching desire. While deeply sensual sparks ignite between the two, the danger outside circles closer. Will Jake’s intense devotion be enough to save Natalie? Or will she turn away from the one man willing to do anything to save her?

 

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

 

Review:   This book has it all – mystery, danger, sex and romance. I found myself rooting for Natalie from page 1. There are a lot of layers to the book and I found myself reading in the wee hours of the morning just to figure out the mystery of Natalie’s stalker.  Natalie is a complex character who makes you feel a range of emotions.  Jake is the sweetest alpha male I’ve ever read and you can’t help be love him!  He is hot, sexy and swoon-worthy.   All-in-all, I enjoyed the book.  There were a few things that I wasn’t sure were necessary, like the romance between Jake’s sister and his friend.  I didn’t think is added anything to the story, but I wasn’t aware this was part of a series, so I’m assuming that the inclusion of their relationship is to set up another book Revealed to Him is an emotional rollercoaster with a twist and a HEA!
