❝ Okay, I’m on a man-fast. That’s what I decided over the summer, and I’m still committed to it. No more men until further notice, since the ones I want give me nothing but trouble.❞
KNOWING JACK is a cute contemporary, new-adult romance. From the description, I was expecting this wild and crazy, brazen hussy – Why? Well, because, in the blurb, Chloe emphatically denies being a slut and a bitch and people generally do not like to claim such titles, so naturally, I assumed that she was both.
Chloe is a wealthy, college-aged history major who found herself on the wrong side of the sheets with her professor. The story is pretty simple: They get caught. He gets fired. She gets shamed. Boom! Story over! Ok, not really, that’s actually where the story begins. Apparently, this professor was so well liked, that poor Chloe becomes the target of some insane fan of “Mr. Hottie Professor” as a result of their affair and needs a little "protecting". Enter Jack!
Jack is pretty much delicious all the way around and he is her new bodyguard.
❝Having Jack slouched beside you on the couch in the middle of the night is not the easiest way to remember you’re on a man-fast. ❞I hear ya sister! Not only is Jack great eye-candy, he is also quick witted and is full of fantastically inappropriate innuendos. He is supposed to be protecting her, not boinking her! Honestly, I got a little impatient with how long it took for them to take the flirting to the next level. I know, I know, the build up – well, sometimes the “build up” is waaaaaay overrated! Lol…
❝I don’t like taking my time.” This is sadly the case. Patience has never been one of my virtues…❞Mine either! Chloe and I are totally on the same page with this one!
❝You’ll like it once I show you how good it can be. ❞Um… Yeah, okay… I’m listening…
❝I stare up at him, dazed with lust and gasping like I’ve been working out all day. But, just in general, I prefer not to act so spineless that I just cave to anything some guy wants to happen.❞This is what I love about Chloe, she is strong and feisty and not keen on bending to the will of others just because they want her to, but for Jack… She (and I) might have to make an exception… Just this once!
KNOWING JACK is sure to be a hit amongst the lovers of the New Adult genre and if you enjoy the big, burly bodyguard-type heros, then it’s definitely a must read!
