Cover love: I love how strong and striking this one is, bravo!
Formats owned: Kindle e-book and Audible audiobook
Story rating: ★★★1/2
Jake and Nina’s story continued here. I liked the flashback method used to fill in what was going with Jake as he fell in love with Nina when they were roommates. The supporting characters from book 1 (Skylar, Mitch, Allison, Cedric) show up for a party Jake wanted to throw Nina. But Nina disappeared for a breather before Jake got home from an unavoidable overnight trip.
Nina’s method for dealing with her issue with Jake’s past was risky, but it gave her the closure she needed to finally accept Jake’s burden. Jake and Nina both came to the conclusion that they didn’t start living until they met each other. We got a crazy trapped in the elevator scene that I wouldn’t wish on anyone before their happily ever after resumed.
Audiobook narrators Felicity Munroe and Brian Pallino were great again. There was a lot of new material about the past events that made Jake that much worthier of sympathy for his strength in the unique situation he couldn’t walk away from ever. Most of all, I loved Jake’s sense of humor.
Nina’s bestie gets her own novel in My Skylar which I already own in both e-book and audiobook formats. I need a breather though before I can return to this world, but eventually I plan to read it.
I feel like I’ve just watched an incredible movie about very complex characters, that was as romantic as it was emotional and had a very sweet ending!
5 Amazing and Emotional Stars!!!
This takes place about 8 years later and answers a lot of questions on how his and Nina’s future pans out. Let’s just say that they’ve been through quite a bit still! Not only is there the situation with Ivy to contend with, but they also have a pregnancy, child, and a new relationship to sort out as well. It is told mostly from Jake’s point of view with only small snippets of Nina’s point of view tied in. There are some flashbacks to situations from the previous book, and knowing Jake’s perspective only further pulled at my heartstrings and confirmed how awesome and adorable he is. I am also totally amazed at Nina and her strength and loyalty to Jake. They had so many obstacles to overcome, and their love for each other was really incredible!
A large amount of the story includes the secondary characters from ‘Jake Undone,’ and I really enjoyed seeing them again. Although this does have a bit of a slower pace, it was a great read and perfect conclusion for Jake and Nina. I would also definitely recommend reading ‘Jake Undone’ first to fully appreciate the characters and better understand the story.
Penelope Ward outdid herself with this fantastic series, and I highly recommend checking it out!
