Penelope Ward you blew me away! There really are no amount of words that you can use to adequately describe this book. Reading this book was bittersweet knowing that this book was the last of the series. I was both sad for it to end because I knew that there would be no more books from this series yet eager for it to end to see how their lives turned out. Penelope did not disappoint. Jake Undone was my first book that I read by Penelope where I met and fell in love with Jake and Nina's love story. So to have this book from Jake's p.o.v. was the cherry on top. It was amazing to get inside Jake's mind to see how he was thinking and feeling during key pivotal experiences from Jake Undone. I didn't think it was possible to love Jake anymore than I already did but my thoughts and feelings for him intensified ten fold. You will fall in love with him all over again and swoon with ever word he says. He is the most caring, sweet, kind hearted character you can read about. If only he were real I would say to myself. He is loyal beyond belief. He grabbed my heart and never let it go. The things he did and said are what every man should strive to be. Nina blew me away in this book! I was so happy that she did what she did for herself. I feel it was the peace that she needed to lead a truly happy life. I loved seeing all of our favorite characters from the series. As much as it was Jake's side of the story I don't think it would truly be complete without them. The way the book ended was amazing! Be prepared once you start reading because once Jake starts talking you are gonna want to listen. So be prepared for an all nighter because it was impossible to put this book down. As this series comes to a end all I can do is thank Penelope for creating a series that both captivates you and makes you think of life.Read more ›

I'm just going to say this right off the bat: THIS is the way to write a book in the male POV. Not many can successfully pull it off, but Penelope Ward has sincerely knocked this one out of the park!

I will admit that Jake Green is truly one of the best book boyfriends I have ever had the pleasure to fantasize about. And I will also admit that Nina Kennedy kind of drove to me a bit nuts in Jake Undone and I honestly felt she was never good enough for him. But now reading his passion, the true love he felt for his girl, I can say that this is a couple that was destined to be together.

What I loved most was that this was not just merely a retelling of Jake Undone. This book had so much more. Not only did we get Jake's version of events, of the daily struggles he went through while falling hopelessly in love with his wife, while trying desperately not to, but we were able to hear it described with such honestly, such raw emotion. My heart broke for him at his unfortunate dilemma forever haunting him, while he secretly pined for the girl who turned his world upside down. Nina and Jake did save each other and seeing his side of things only made me love him more. The torment he went through, while being everything to one woman and every beat of her heart to another, was written flawlessly.

Having the entire crew there as his sounding board was absolutely brilliant. We get to catch up with old friends, seeing how everyone is faring. The additional glimpses into life for Jake and Nina Green as they live now, 9 years later was just enough to keep me satisfied that yes, love can really conquer all.

“From the day you first walked into my life, you’ve been saving me.”

Penelope Ward has written a richly detailed, VERRA sexy and emotional story with lots of new material and details.

This unputdownable story is told from Jake’s point of view, who is one of my absolute favorite book boyfriends so I devoured every word of this cleverly-written book. It takes a very gifted writer to create a story that includes the most significant facts from another book (JAKE UNDONE) but which also includes incredibly fresh insights and beautiful, emotional, sexy and swoon-worthy new scenes. JAKE UNDERSTOOD can absolutely be read as a standalone, but it is also the perfect companion to Jake Undone.

This story is told mainly through a series of flashbacks, precipitated by a series of events that are driving a wedge between Nina and Jake’s great love. I am a huge fan of male POV’s and Penelope Ward once again nails the male voice. We get a sexy, gritty, emotional yet incredibly erotic and readable story that flows perfectly and will bring you to tears.

Marriage and family is not easy. And Jake and Nina have more uphill battles than most couples. Yet Jake is fighting hard for their love and for his girl. Do not shy away from this book out of the belief that it is merely a retelling of Jake Undone. It is much, much more!! Fall in love with Jake all over again in this gorgeous story. Another must-read from Penelope Ward!!

You know the book is good when you keep re-writing and updating the review. This book is one which just stays with you and seeps through your pores and grabs your heart. I know the author received a lot of criticism for writing this book because some readers felt it would almost be a carbon copy of Jake Undone. Well the first revelation was it really wasn't, it was almost like a new book. Not completely because there was a retelling of a few pivotal scenes but so much more detail was added from Jakes perspective. I really loved Jake Undone and thought for sure there was no way the author could possibly surpass it, but unbelievably she did. If I wasn't in love with Jake Green before, this book would have cinched it. The way the author went about delivering the POV was a thing of beauty-it was quite simply poetry in motion. I really could not have wished for a better setting than Jake spending time with some of my favorite characters-Mitch and Skylar as well as Cedric and his sister Alison. What a way to tie up loose ends. Hearing the story told by Jake and delving into the mind of Jake was such a roller coaster ride. I got to hear his thoughts and feel his pain, his love, his guilt, his angst. Being in Jake's head was a wild ride and made me appreciate the sensitive man he is as well as how absolutely wicked his sense of humor is. Jake Green is the perfect man and I saw that here in this story repetitively. He is quite simply the epitome of a great Book Boyfriend. His interactions with Ivy and how he handled and dealt with her illness was so emotional and sometimes gut wrenching as was his love for Nina. Jake was Nina’s other half and they were destined to be together. He was her perfect mate and match.
So what’s different in Jake’s POV?
