Jaden thought he knew what he was doing. He was under the impression that he had a plan all worked out. He would jump in, get the girl, ride the ultimate wave, and then jump back off unscathed and none the worse for wear. What he didn’t expect was Ella. She was more than just the girl he wanted for a short time. She turned into the one that his heart wanted. The one that haunted his mind and starred in his dreams. She made him want and hope and dream when he knew how deadly they were to his plan. Can Jaden follow through on his foolproof plan, or will Ella end up ripping and obliterating his plan into a million pieces? Who will win this battle of wills, the predator or the prey?
Ella and Jaden were unexpectedly refreshing and beautifully raw in their motivations and endeavors. While one was in for fun, the other was willing to risk it all if truly bitten by the love bug. We can never know what we will find out about others, but while we need to keep an open mind, we also need to keep an open heart. True love is a rare and precious gift that needs to be cherished and safeguarded at all costs. Ella proves to be the catalyst that Jaden didn’t know he needed in truly seeing the world around him with a new pair of eyes.
One of my all-time favorite authors is Rachelle Ayala, and she never fails to entertain while also teaching.Read more ›
who is not your typical heroine. I found her
light and aloof; a very carefree young
woman. She too makes an appearance in The Next Contestant but it's a very brief encounter. I love how Jaden and Ella's story unfolded and that it was short and sweet with a hint of danger. I really enjoyed the finalle and I've heard there may be more to Kimber and Jax, which may spin off the end of this story! Of course that includes Jaden and his sweetheart Ella :). Bravo Rachelle Ayala for creating a loveable cast and bringing Jaden to life in his own story.
And when Jaden swoops in to rescue her and they really open up to each other... sigh. I rooted for these two all the way through. Steamy, sexy, and a lot of fun! Can't wait for Rachelle's next book!
Jaden decides he has the perfect plan to woo Ella into his bed. Putting on a false look and act he snags her, but he's not prepared for when it all comes tumbling down because Ella claims his heart.
Playing the field got Jaden where he wanted to be; playing with love shows him just own wrong his desires were.
Great characters and story, a fantastic fast read!
Ella is an anime nerd. She seems sweet but some times I wonder if she really lives in this reality. She doesn't like jocks because she thinks they all are alike. But then she meets Jaden who plays on a soccer team as the goalie, and he is one hell of a goalie. He knows that Ella doesn't go out with jocks, so he pretends to be a techno nerd and prays he doesn't get caught.
Their relationship seems to progress pretty fast but then again he is trying to keep this secret from her, so he is always trying to juggle soccer and her. I was tired just reading about him trying to keep his secret. This story did keep my attention and I giggled in some spots and really liked how both of their feelings really started to show but I wish more of their feelings showed during the sex scenes. To me it seemed the sex between them was not how sex should be between two people who really are having feelings for each other. Ella didn't seem comfortable with the talking during sex. That was the only part of the story that I couldn't get into.
My favorite part is at the end of the story where the characters take over. I laughed so hard because I have never read a story that let the characters take over after the story is over. More stories should allow them to do that, it was so funny. I felt during this time was when the true Ella and Jaden came out.
I will read more of this authors stories because I did enjoy it. I want to know more about this couple and other couples in her other stories. Jaden and Ella are on my list of great characters!
