This is a great start to a new series. This novella was written after book 1, Scared of Beautiful, but works as a prequel to Jackson's story.
As an eighteen year old boy, Jackson gets his girlfriend pregnant. When things don't go as planned and she denies his marriage proposal, he does what she wants and takes her to the doctor. But after hours of waiting, he realizes that she left him without a backward glance. For the next few years, Jackson is left with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with drugs and girls. But when life in his small town takes a turn for the worst and his best friend leaves to go to college, Jackson decides to take charge of his life. He stops with the random hook ups and drugs and applies to college. When he shows up at his best friend's dorm room and meets her roommate, his life is forever changed.
I really enjoyed this short introduction to Jackson. It left me excited to see where his story goes and how his past is put to rest. With lots of twists and turns, Jacqueline has made me really excited to read the rest of this new-to-me series.
ARC provided to A is for Alpha B is for Books for honest review.
The prologue of the novella Infinite Fear immediately draws the reader into Jackson’s dark world. The author shows his pain and broken heart throughout the novella. The read is fast paced with a lot happening in a short period of time. The voices of each character are strong and distinct. Jackson’s character drives the story in every way. Jacqueline Abrahams has created an interesting and believable character in Jackson. The author makes the reader believe that Jackson is a unique individual with positive potential if given a chance.
Is Jackson damaged beyond repair? Is his fear infinite? Can he move on? The author has not finished his journey. The reader will want to read the sequel immediately.
This book starts off kind of sad and I feel for Jackson, I really do. The author really brings out the emotions that Jackson is feeling in this book. It also showed that Jackson was not from the right side of the tracks and probably lived a life harder than most had.
There were a couple of downsides to this story though I kind of felt like I was missing some back story. I felt like that even though this was a novella and the author was trying to introduce us, and let us get to know Jackson's character. That there was just something missing a little bit. Like the story started jumping into another story, oh boy I'm not explaining that well enough. I mean obviously there's a lot to these character's backgrounds. Though throughout the story we did get some answers to some of the things in this story.
I would give this story 4 Out of 5 Stars just cause I like this series and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the New Adult genre.
This novella is the story of Jackson, a young adult who spends his time drinking, sleeping with almost every woman he meets. he wasn`t like that before, he had a girlfriend, Shana that he loved. She gets pregnant and they decide to terminate the pregnancy but changes her mind and disappears leaving him destroyed. He spends his nights sleeping around and drinking. We also get intorduced to Jade, his lesbian best friend and who is trying to get Jackson to change his ways and live a life with purpose.
One night he goes to a strupclub to hear his friend Jade play and meets Nina and makes him see life in a different light.
It was a good story, well written. The characters were developped. I felt that Jackson was a great character, you understood why he became that way and also he realized that there was more to life than drinking and partying his life away.
This coming of age book was fun, sexy and also intriguing to make you want to learn more about Jackson and what his life will become in the next book of the series Scared of beautiful. What I liked about this book is that It can be read before of in between the other two books.
Great read for the romance lovers.
Rating: 3 stars
I read this novella understanding it's the prequel to Scared of Beautiful. We're along for the downhill ride of Jackson's past. And not an exhilarating downhill ride, it's more of a painful and grieving ride. Jackson is living a life to numb and forget, which he succeeds at in unhealthy ways. I'm glad that Jacqueline brought hope and goals to Jackson's life instead of keeping him stuck in an environment filled with painful memories. I recognize Jade as a faithful friend, but at times the dialogue between Jade and Jackson was choppy and uncomfortable. I don't know if this is purposeful as they had a brief "falling out" for in their friendship or if it was just an awkwardness to their dialogue. We got a good character build-up of Jackson within this novella and I'm rooting for him and his college endeavors. I'm also hopeful that we'll see some closure or get more of Shana in Scared of Beautiful in terms of her departure. Give this a try and find your next book crush!
