Series: Beautiful Rose, #0.5
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance (18+)
Release Date: August 9, 2013
Twenty-five year old Jack Falcon doesn’t do relationships, and why would he when he has woman after woman literally throwing themselves at him? For Jack, life is perfect just the way it is. He works hard and he plays harder.
Jack’s life changes when he meets Belle. Unlike any woman he’s ever met, there is something about this girl that makes him unable to keep away, something beyond the youthful beauty and her innocent spirit. Belle is strong and independent, a big leap from the usual brainless chicks he tends to attract.
Jack begins a dangerous game. He is determined to seduce Belle, and without realizing it, his feelings for her develop beyond anything he has ever felt before. Things become complicated when he learns there are good reasons as to why he should stay the hell away from her.
How can you stay away from someone you want to spend every waking minute with? And what do you do when you know eventually you will destroy that person?
As their feelings for each other deepen, Jack struggles with his own internal demons which threaten to rip them apart. Jack is torn between following his heart and listening to his head, which keeps telling him he is not good enough for her. She deserves better than what he can give her.
How far will he push before they both fall over the edge?
I really enjoyed this intro to Jack Falcon. I think it will help to understand him when the time comes to read Beautiful Rose. It was a great story of how love can change a person.
Jack starts out as a man-whore who doesn’t give a shit about women other than what they can do for him. I think I even rolled my eyes a few time when is arrogance was over the top. He is HOT and he knows it. Some of the lines he used to pick up woman had me laughing. With that being said, he did grow on me. After learning about his relationship with his father and his childhood, I can see whey he acted the way he did.
When Belle shows up, his attitude shifts a bit and it was nice to see. She was good for him and in some ways, wise beyond her years. I really enjoyed her as a character. She had such a strong will and she was determined. I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t a bit more explanation of her situation (work, car, etc.).
I am so happy that I got the privilege to read this story and I can’t wait to read the next book. I give it 4 out of 5!!
