Kristy fights with her fearful emotions and crippling shyness brought on by a brutal kidnapping that forever changes her naïve view of the world. The reader can easily associate with Kristy, rooting for a change in her life to overcome this form of post-traumatic stress disorder that victims like her often experience after a violent crime.
Jackson Reed must also deal with his own guilt and trauma after accidentally shooting the wrong man while on duty with the NYPD as a detective.
Kristy and Jackson’s chance meeting starts a chain of events that begins with love at first sight and ends with life and death struggles that the two reluctant lovers must overcome to save themselves.
Miller and Holford have done an excellent job following the tried and true story arc of storytelling in Jaded Love with first an event that changes the protagonists’ lives, then escalating trouble to test their mettle, and finally, a satisfying and dramatic resolution at the end.
The authors could have written Jaded Love as just a well-told love story between two damaged characters who need each other and God to help with their struggles, but as an added treat to the readers, Miller and Holford have thrown several monkey wrenches into the narrative, which threaten to not only disrupt Kristy and Jackson’s love but also their lives and careers. One sub plot involves the shady dealings of a corrupt pharmaceutical company that threatens tragic circumstances for our protagonists and throw twists to the story that will leave readers literally on the edge of their seats.
All in all, Jaded Love is a well-written and excellent follow-up to their debut novel, Dangerous Love, and highly recommended.
Kristy Andrews survived being kidnapped last year by an evil politician who wanted to kill her best friend, Alessa. She’s from Chicago but moved to New York City to be closer to Alessa and Alessa’s friends. Kristy doesn’t like to ask for help but it’s clear to her friends she’s not fine. She meets a handsome, moody stranger at the church she goes to and their connection is immediate.
NYPD Detective Jackson Reed attends group therapy sessions at the church because he accidently killed a criminal/informant in the line of duty. Though it was all an accident, he feels overwhelming guilt. He’s distant from everyone who matters to him and he took a leave of absence from his job.
Kristy and Jackson fit well together. Though neither of them is looking for a relationship, it just sort of happens between them and they help heal one another. When Kristy starts to receive threatening messages, Jackson’s instincts kick into gear.
While I liked the story, a few typos and inconsistencies with the first book stuck out at me. For example, the church in book 1 is Serenity Community Church and in book two it’s First Avenue Church. Maybe Pastor Ethan changed the name of the church in the year that separates the two books but I don’t think I read about that.
Anyway, I really liked Jackson and I understood his pain. I understood Kristy’s, too, but I couldn’t connect with her. She was in denial about the death threats and didn’t take the trouble she was in seriously. In my opinion, she put herself in needless danger.
I don’t read Inspirational books often but I enjoyed the scenes at the church because the main people involved are truly good, non-judgmental people (Alessa, Josh, Amanda, and Ethan). The story felt a little preachy at times but it didn’t distract from my enjoyment.
This is a sweet, romantic story about two people who needed help to move on with their lives. A lesson can definitely be learned from this book: no matter the darkness you endure, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel but sometimes you just have to search for it.
