Shane comes across as somewhat of a jerk (well, he is, at first, you’ll know it when you come across the scene), and the two spend some time apart; but you know he might be serious when he brings Ivy home for dinner with the extended family.
Tons of chemistry rolls off the page between these two characters. I only wish there’d been some more insight into Shane’s character (what was he - or who - doing in New York all that time?). Not pining away for Ivy, but...eh, he makes up for it later on in the story.
A fun read for those who like a quick read full of angst and romance as well.
**** 4 **** "taking the perfect shot" stars
This is a shorter read, just over 2 hours, and is written totally from the heroine, Ivy's, POV. Whilst I generally prefer dual POV, single was much more suited to the direction the plot took. However it did mean I struggled to connect with Shane in the way that I did with Ivy.
I really liked both Ivy and Shane, in part 1 of this book and the chemistry between them, in one of the most unique situations I've seen in a book, was intense. Then I didn't really like Shane, but loved how the story was progressing. Then, in part 2 I questioned Ivy's character, forgave them both, and then really didn't like Shane, whilst still loving the story.
In part 3 we really get to know Ivy , her background and her dreams. Ivy was either incredibly naive or very focused, and perhaps a mixture of the two. She seemed far too nice a person to make the decision that she did regarding Greg. However I totally felt her discomfort and distress over this and, with her dream job so close to hand, how she felt there was absolutely no other choice for her. AND THIS IS WHERE SHANE EARNED MY LOVE BACK, lol.
There plot was kept simple to allow not only the development of the characters but also to include real depth of emotion. We had lust, we had sexual tension, we had heart break, we had despair and finally we had a Picture Perfect ending.
I really liked Shane and Ivy. Their chemistry nearly leapt off the pages at you. It was instant and intense. Their "relationship" however is anything but. They never really talk about it but Ivy knows right away that Shane is a game changer in her life. And she's not wrong - it just takes them a while to get there. Every time she thinks that something can start between them, she gets a dose of reality thrust at her. I enjoyed this read. It was quick and engaging.
While I don't believe that a dual POV would have benefited this story, I would have liked a little insight into Shane, what he was feeling and how he handled the curveballs that were thrown at any attempt at a normal relationship.
All in all, it's a great quick read that ends with the reader feeling good about picking it up. I recommend it.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book for a voluntary and completely honest review.
I always know when I pick up a book by Jade C Jamison I will be taken on an emotional, literary journey. Picture Perfect does not disappoint!
