Orever to build up and their sex scenes are sweet and allow Jake to show emotion then he does in Il Barça other aspectsf the book I really enjoyed Jenny She s true and good and just wants what s best for Austin It will kill her to see him leave with Jake but she knows he needs his dad in his life She Italian Phrase Book opens herself up to Jake and considering her life growing up having a father in prison and mother who slowly wasted away until she died Jenny worked hard as a teen to keep a roofver her head and the bills paid even when she had no Lovesong (Green Creek one lookingut for her Jake didn t have a great childhood either but at least Jenny is willing to take a chance with her feelings For awhile it felt like Jake was willing to risk his heart as well but when a hero starts The Countess out as a jerk I usually think great because this will make his journey all the sweet But Jake was still saying and doing jerky things up until almost the endf the story and I just did buy it I wanted a happy ending for Jenny and for Austin and I m glad Jake got his HEA as well but Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South only because it was wrapped up into the happiness for Austin and JennyI am so intrigued by Jake s half brother Max He s broody a bit angsty and I want to know I also really enjoyed Austin and his small side storyline with his first crush Rachel I m curious to know about Rachel as well because she shows up half way through the story to live with her Aunt and Uncle the parentsf Austin s best friend while her mom battles cancer Not much else is given in the way Kelttiläistarinoita of details so I really hope this gets expandedn in the futureThis ended up being an k read for me I enjoyed Jenny the small town setting the story is set in and Austin was fun to read about Jake just wasn t a hero I could get behind and cheer for He would start to get me n his side making attempts to right all the wrongs he did with Austin and then things would get heavy and emotional and to protect himself he d say something mean Uomini ad Auschwitz: Storia del più famigerato campo di sterminio nazista or cutting to Jenny and I just thought she could do so much better He did end upn a path Roma Noir of being a real father to Austin which was nice to see it just wasn t enough for me to really enjoy his character This was a decent read but I m deducting a star because the hero pissed meff so much He gets A History of the Crusades, Volumes I, II and III (Boxed Set) off way too easy after being an absentee father for his son s entire life he comes home to a mini him who loves everything he loves so he barely has to work at it to make his kid love him And after startingff the story as such a jerk adding in a little sexual humiliation Love is the Enemy of the heroine was reallyverkill Everything is served to Jake Exhalation on a platter he just barely gets a dark moment The best partf the story was Jake starting to make friends with his previous lifelong enemy his half brother Excellent seuel baiting Susan Andersen is an author who I always read as soon as her books are ut That Thing Called Love is the start
#of her razor #her Razor series and has a very intriguing setup a hero who isn t really heroic after all he hasn t seen his thirteen year ld son since he was born so I was mighty interested in how we could fall in love with Jake and by the end Oglinda salvata of the book I did warm up to him a bit if not fallver himJake is a famous photographer who carries his family history like a shield after all his father abandoned many families so he thinks he is unlucky in love and his wn ne shot didn t go very well His girlfriend got pregnant in their senior year Nemico of high school they got married and that didn t go very well he declined the scholarship that would have taken himut Cannella e polvere da sparo of the town he badly wanted to leave and took a job then she died and he was left with a baby and when his wife s parentsffered him an ut he took it and went to college and kept promising to come back but never did and his son s Austin s grandparents rightly told him not to any so he carried n his life Every House Needs a Balcony: A Novel occasionally feeling the guilt for being a lousy father Now his son Austin is all alone and he has come to be a parent and that means taking him away to New YorkJenny is like a sister to Austin and his guardian She loves the townf Razor Bay she came #there as a sixteen year ld whose life came crashing down nce her father was convicted f running a ponzi scheme #as a sixteen year ld whose life came crashing down Poems (The I Tatti Renaissance Library) once her father was convictedf running a ponzi scheme her mother for all purposes checked Bleach, Volume 05 out so it was upto Jenny to support herself and Austin s grandparents gave her a job and they gradually became close I loved how fierce Jenny was about Austin and told Jake that Austin had wanted a father when he was small but he gotver the disappointment and that Jake couldn t expect to just walk in and wipe Gather Together in My Name 1ST Edition out thirteen yearsf absenceJake was kind Pentimento of immature in a way for me and the part when Jenny told him that he wasn t thenly ne who had been dealt a crap hand was awesome for me it served him right What I did like how he finally got to know his half brother Max and Austin his teenage angst was fun and his feelings for his father and noticing a girl was kind f cuteThe romance department was the The Last Testament one that was kindf slow for me it took a while to get going and even when it did I didn t really fall in love with Jake Now Jenny she was sweet and I loved her standing up to her father and her friend she was a nice personSo yes this book was good and I would read the next book in this series but this is not the best written Susan Andersen but it does take a chance when it comes to the hero ARC received through Netgalley Really did not fancy the charters r the narration verall this bo.
