Jake Wilson is a very successful tattoo artist in California. He lives his life on the go and there’s not a shortage of women at his disposal at any point in time. His life is perfect for a man who has no desire to commit and the stories he could tell you would either terrify you or have you intrigued and hoping to become his next treat. What happens when he meets the first female to challenge him?
Addi Woods is a very successful club owner who has just recently relocated. Her partnership with Jax Wilson brings her face to face with Jax’s twin brother Jake. His sexy charm won’t work on her because she sees right through his intentions. What happens when Jake is determined to break through her sophisticated demeanor and show her his true personality? Will she fall for his wild existence or will she be the one to leave him always wanting more?
I just finished reading Jake 2, and “highly entertaining” are the first words that come to mind. This book taught me some things (as did the first one, Jake), and it kept me on my toes. Most of the time I found myself laughing–enjoying Jake’s lifestyle, friends, and business. However, there were also some unexpected scenes that had me taking Jake (and Addi) a little more seriously.
In Jake 2, the characters are fleshed out with added depth, and we are introduced to a new friend of Jake’s (Golden) who added some variety and fun to the narrative.
One of my favorite things about both works is that they actually sound like they’re narrated from a guy’s perspective. In this series, we only hear from the male’s perspective, and it’s truly authentic. I’ve read a lot of dual perspective novels in new adult and contemporary romance, and I always doubt that what’s written from the male’s perspective is how guys actually think. In Jake and Jake 2, there’s no doubt. And I loved that insight into the male brain!
Some of my favorite quotes from Jake 2:
- “I figure since I’m practically a canvas that people always stare at, I may as well have a great physique to go with it.”
- “I do go ahead and give the facial hair a once over though; you can never pay too much attention to the beard.”
- “She’s like my vodka angel.”
It’s rare for me to like the second in a series even better than the first, but I daresay Jake 2 falls into that category. (And I loved the first Jake, even going so far as to recommend it to close friends.) Jake becomes more three-dimensional in the second installment, more of a person than a sex object. I loved seeing his relationships–with his friends, his dog, and his family–flourish.
And that ending! Let’s just say, without revealing any spoilers, that I can’t wait for Jake 3 to come out!
