Author: Eve Jagger
Book 4 in series Sexy bastard
Main characters: Jackson Masters and Skylar North
I thought I knew what I wanted.
The perfect life, the perfect wife.
And then I met Skylar.
Turns out what I wanted wasn't what I needed.
She's spontaneous, beautifully chaotic. She's an irresistible storm about to let loose. She dances like a fire-cracker and finds the sexiest ways to get in trouble. She breaks into buildings and knows all of Atlanta's best taco trucks. She doesn't check the boxes on my list--she blows my list out of the water.
I thought I knew what I wanted, but now all I want is her.
But our lives are so different. She's chasing adventure and determined to never settle down. I'm climbing the ladder to success, setting the groundwork for my ambition and the family that I hope to build. When our worlds come together, will they fit together or will they clash?
I received an ARC of this phenomenal book in exchange for an honest review and I am very happy I got my hands on that gem before the release date :) cause I loved it :) I will forever be grateful for the fact that the lovely Eve reached out to me a few months ago with a proposition to review her previous book :) I fell in love with her writing style and all the characters and this book was no exception... :) although my sister, J, claimed that I did not deserve to read it before everyone else.. ;) why, you ask? oh, I'll tell you ;) I still haven't read the first two books in this series... *hangs my head in shame" I know... I know... but I WILL get to them very soon :) they are on my list of 20-ish books that I'm reading first, once I'll dig myself out of all the ARCs I signed up for, and I am like two weeks away from doing just that :) but J didn't buy that explanation and she WAS giving me some very nasty looks every time she saw me reading this story :) but I love her anyway :) now that we have this little intro out of the way, let's get to all the awesome details of this book, shall we? :)
So first of all, our main couple :) I honestly didn't expect to love Jackson as much as I did :) I remember him from the previous story and... he was ok ;) but once I got to know him more, I was really surprised by how much I connected with him :) he's a successful architect who always have a plan... :) so imagine his, and ours as readers surprise, when Skylar catches his attention :) she's so full of live, living in the moment... :) well, it's not exactly shocking that he's fascinated by her... what's more shocking is that the feeling doesn't go away ;) they are like day and night :) but of course not everything may be as it seems... Jackson is not always a stiff, serious businessman with a plan... he can loosen up from time to time... and Skylar's story hides some very sad stuff... there is a reason why her motto is "live a little" and seizing the day... to the point where she tends to have small panic attacks when she feels cornered by thoughts about future and any sort of plans... but no spoilers from me :) they are a very explosive mix, so things definitely does not go smoothly between them... ;) but it's a wild ride that you absolutely want to be a part of :)
Besides those two, there is of course a bunch of other amazing characters :) since they are all friends, previous couples make appearances throughout the whole book :) and even if you are new to this series, getting glimpses of Ryder and Cassie, Cash and Savannah or Knox and Shelby will make you want to read their stories :) I don't want to go into too many details about all of them, because we would be here all day if I started to describe their awesomeness :) what you need to know is that all the guys, along with the fifth one, Parker, are business partners and friends :) the girls formed friendships of their own and all those group interactions are a fantastic addition to each book :) they give you a little insight into other characters and just make you curious to read their stories, if you haven't done that already :) but don't worry, each of those books can be read as a standalone, so it doesn't really matter where you start :)
I absolutely fell in love with this book :) again, it was written in 2 POVs and with that phenomenal writing style that I am already expecting from Eve Jagger :) I inhaled this book because I simply could not put it down :) it was a perfect mix of hilarious moments with much more emotional ones... I mean that prologue... it almost made me cry and I barely started the book... but that's just another sign of a talented author :) and even though I usually relate to the heroines more, this time it was Jackson who stole my heart... :) don't get me wrong, I absolutely adored Skylar, but Jackson... *sighs* I just wanted to hug him :) so no matter if you are already a fan of previous books written by Eve or you are brand new to her stories, definitely pick this one up :)
And the rest of this amazing series is currently FREE on KINDLE UNLIMITED so trust me... do yourselves a favour and give them a try :)
