Jake Undone - Penelope Ward
Jake, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: I’ve only read joint books by Ms Ward but I’ve always enjoyed them so I gave stab at a solo book and I’m so glad I did.

The Characters:

Nina Kennedy:On the brink of letting her fears ruin the world but really stronger than she ever knew she could be.
Jake Green:Pseudo bad boy, not so secret geek with a heart of gold
Ryan, Tarrah:roommates

The Story:

I got an offer to read this on the cheap along with the follow up for free (author promotion) so I took it. I’m glad I did. I’ve been experiencing a bit of a book slump in the last few months and I think this book as put me well on the road to recovery.

So Nina and Jake. The chemistry was immediate but it was drawn out and a friendship really grew before. I love that. I love that Jake helps Nina conquer her fears… and math. I love that what is most important to them is that the other is happy. As often is the challenge in romance novels communication or the lack there of proved to be their downfall. Some crazy mistakes, suffering and an outright lie later, Nina and Jake make their way back to each other and even though everything isn’t sunshine and roses I feel like they are dedicated enough to each others happiness to make things work.
