With Katee Robert's Prom Queen it's pretty easy to deduce who in the high school we'll be reading about. But regardless here goes:
Despite not having a reputation as a sweetheart, Jessica Jackson was a popular girl at Catfish Creek High School. Cheerleader, Prom Queen, pageant winner, dating the star quarterback of their high school football team, Jake Davis. But things come to a crashing halt when her Jake is injured and all their dreams / plans for the future change. She leaves Jake when he needs her most for the glitz and glamour of LA. Now, it's time for her ten year high school reunion, and being older and wiser, Jessica is looking to go back and make amends to those she trampled while trying to remain on top. Unfortunately, her life now is nothing like she pictured it all those years ago and she will definitely not be attending the reunion, with the threat of facing Jake, alone. So, she contacts Diamond Dates.
Jake Davis's world came crashing down when he was injured. Losing not only his football scholarship, but Jessica was tough, but he made it through that time. Now, he runs a successful business setting up women with dates for special events. He's pretty shocked when Jessica's name pops up as an applicant for Diamond Dates. Jake thinks this would be the perfect opportunity to finally get back at the heartache she caused him all those years ago. So he decides to pose as her date for the reunion.
Neither of them are expecting the sparks and attraction to still be there after all these years, but they are, but will their past prevent them from moving on with their futures?
The second chance romance it one of my favorites, and Katee Robert does a great job with Jessica and Jake's story. There's a lot of history between these two, and I think one of the only things I would have liked to see expanded upon was the history. Not only were they high school sweethearts, they were childhood friends. I would have loved to delve further into that friendship between them before they became romantic because I think it makes the heartbreak of what happened later even more relevant.
Otherwise, for being a novella length story, and therefore one I finished within a day, I thought that things were filled out pretty well, especially the heat factor between Jessica and Jake. Their unresolved feelings for each other were scorching, yet I also liked the fact that Katee Robert didn't sacrifice anything within the story just to give us more sex. It all balanced out very good in the end.
Although this one is touted as "book 3", it's completely stand alone. Looking at the other titles in the series, and reading about the various secondary characters, I think I've got some of the connections made already. In any case there are quite a few characters that I look forward to seeing more of in the other books to be released in this series.
"He couldn't be more wrong."
Imagine his surprise when he gound out his ex Jessica Jackson was looking for a fake boyfriend for their high school reunion. And the cherry on top of the cake is that she used his company.
Jessica Jackson had not been a nice person when she was growing up. She was one of the meanest person in high school. She left her boyfriend when he lost his chances to play pro football after an accident that severally injured him.
Life didn't turn out the way she expected it to. She needed a date for her high school reunion so she let her friends set her up with a fake date for the reunion. When Jess got a look at who her date was, her world tilted on its axis. She wanted to call off the whole thing but decided against it.
They fell right back into each other's arms. Jake wanted to know the new Jessica but he was also curious about what happened to her friendship with Leah Camacho (TROUBLE). The two ladies finally worked things out and moved on.
Jess and Jake both still held on to the hurt of their pasts. Even though they loed each other, the past was tearing them apart and if they couldn't learn to let go of the past. They would miss out on what the future had in store for them.
PROM QUEEN is the third book in the BAD BOY HOMECOMING series. It was heart-wrenching and beautiful. Fabulous job by Katee Robert!
Jessica Jackson, once the prom queen and class mean-girl at Catfish Creek High, reluctantly agrees to attend her 10 year class reunion to make amends to all those she wronged before leaving town after graduation. That includes Jake, the longtime boyfriend she left behind when his promising future was sidelined.
Naturally things don't go well or as expected. Mostly because of the inspired, slightly devious way Jessica and Jake are reunited. (Insert author's satisfied smirk here.) All goes downhill from there, but it's worth suffering the hateful behavior of her former classmates and family to witness she and Jake get their HEA.
There aren't many flashbacks of Jessica in mean-girl action, so it's hard to imagine her in that role. The author usually pens strong, confident heroines. Having one so unsure of herself is a bit unnerving, and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about that. Jake himself isn't the arrogant hero Robert is known for, so he and Jessica are pretty evenly matched.
I love the premise of this connected series. It's unique, intriguing, and leaves room for all manner of twists and turns. Prom Queen is an enjoyable read, even if it does bring back high school memories best forgotten. It has appearances by at least three main characters from two of the other books, which makes me anxious to discover their stories. I've pre-ordered and am waiting for release day.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
