Knowing Jack

 

Knowing Jack. Rachel Curtis.

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Hmnn….I was hoping this was going to be one of those New Adult romances full of angst and drama. Maybe for some it is but not for me. Jack seemed a nice guy, but as a bodyguard – well, he’s waay out of line with his flirting and further and Chloe, so in love just a couple of months ago with the college professor that led to this situation, and yet – despite her resolve and man-ban she just can’t help reacting to Jack. Its just felt wrong to me, give it time maybe and they’d both have got there, but this was like a sort of insta-luuurve and just felt forced and wrong. Chloe’s ten rules to me were irritating and didn’t add anything – still I see others love them, so as I’m always saying this is just MY view and others will feel differently 🙂
The death threats that led to Jack being with her seemed very tame, there was little happening apart from a couple of texts and some cyber bullying – I expected more. More action, more drama, anything really but it seemed the story just bumbled along. I didn’t dislike it, just didn’t find much I could really engage with. I didn’t dislike Chloe, she seemed quite typical of a late teens character, but she didn’t really have anything I particularly liked about her either. There’s Jack, who chafed against his father but given this was his chance to redeem himself I’d have expected him to be far more professional. There were a few side characters but the strory is mostly told via Jack and Chloe POV.
Then there’s the ending – or for me lack of it. Just when it finally seems to be working That happens, That info comes out, and I’m tapping at my page turn expecting more but… it’s the end. I hate endings like that – I feel cheated. I’m assuming this means more book(s) but don’t know as I can’t find any info. Sadly the whole thing just didn’t work for me.
Stars: two.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
