Book Summary
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?

“Really, I’m not as bad as my reputation makes me out to be. In fact, I’d go as far to describe myself as a decent guy. I just have no interest in a relationship that extends beyond a quick fuck when it suits me. I really don’t see how it’s my fault or problem if a chick falls for my boyish charms. Every woman seems to think she can change me, that she somehow has something all the other notches on my belt didn’t have.”
My Review
I read a lot. By a lot I mean, I read nearly 300 books last year. This year so far I’ve read about 150. That being said, I’ve seen it all. It’s hard for a book to be totally unique for me. What I look for and hope for in a read is that the author’s stories are at least told in a new and refreshing way.
I found that this author did that. She told a story that many wouldn’t but we know happens. I was shocked she went there. And the way things happened once certain things are revealed is also very believable.
On the other hand, there were some things that happened that were very predictable. Like you knew because of A, B and C were bound to happen and they did. However, the author did really shock me at one point. I won't say more due to big spoilers.
I so look forward to reading the next book in this series and see where the author takes me.
My book boyfriend is Jack. (minus the surf board, lol)
