    One thought on “Jake's Return”

    1. This was my first read by this author and it was a pretty good one. It had a pretty unusual plot, was well paced, had a very strong heroine, and even had some suspenseful twists and turns. A little light in the romantic scenes, and the hero frustrated me a bit, but all in allt a bad read.Jake's 30-ish, an Army veteran, and has been in prison for the last 8 years for a murder he may or may not have committed. Jake's had a crappy childhood growing up with a rich but unstable mother who committed s [...]

    3. Genre Contemporary Romance; My Rating: 4.25 of 5Rebecca Reed and Jacob Donovan were best pals who helped take care of each other as they grew up as the small town outcasts. Rebecca had never known her father and her mother left her when she turned 16. Rebecca was headed to college with dreams to ultimately end up in one of the big, beautiful homes across town with a wealthy husband and children to raise. Jake was a wild boy especially after his mother died when he was a pre teen and his father t [...]

    5. In spite of hating the secret-baby trope, this wasn't a bad book until the end when the the hero has a sudden personality transplant. Through the entire book, he refuses to share his thoughts out loud. Through the entire book, he believes he doesn't have anything to offer the heroine and that, in spite of admitting to himself repeatedly how much he wants her, he can't believe she wants him. This even though she's made it pretty damn plain in so many ways. At the end, he has an epiphany. Totally [...]

    6. Jake protects the woman he loves, heart and soul, by denying that love. He’s from the wrong side of the tracks. He’s been in prison. He’s not good enough for her, he thinks. Rebecca knows better. She knows him. And she won’t give up on him. Jake is a good man, behind who is a strong woman. Their history stands in the way of their future--until Jake is forced to re-examine his past, in possession of the all the facts, and realise that his childhood shaped his future. That he was never unw [...]

    7. Overall, I enjoyed this novel. The characters are rich and well drawn, and I adored Becca, the main character. The problems the characters faced were those that I could related to, and the setting was a nice switch from the usual big cities; I liked the fact that it took place in a small PA town since I'm in a neighboring state. The romance was nice too, but the sex scene either needed more development or removed completely because all the build-up to it only produced a very short erotic scene.T [...]

    8. Overall it was a a very good read. I was hooked from the excerpt. I felt the characters were well written and their inner turmoils could be connected with by many. I think we all have self doubts from time to time and I could relate to both characters' uncertainties. I thought that Becca's and Jake's connection to one another could have been elaborated a bit more and that the love scenes should have been described a bit better - not so much as sexual details just the feeling depicted a bit more [...]

    9. This book was riciculous. It had no descriptions. It was mostly dialogue with nothing else. The characters felt sooo fake I couldn't forget for one second I was reading a book. I felt no connection between Jake and Rebecca. It was forced and stupid. Katie, their daughter, had no personality. She was just there. What annoyed me the most was that Katie was NEVER told that Jake was her father! I mean, are you kidding? That's the whole reason I kept reading the book! The resolution was rushed and si [...]

    10. Very nice steady read.The only problem?I really wanted to strangle Jake.The heroine was pushy at times, sure, but the hero?Oh, where do I start about the hero?If his reasoning were more stupid I would have expired of frustration.Plus, all his love love love LOVE kind of took the back seat when it came to all the girls hem a teen (in the heroines swimming pool for God's sake!) right up to his 'I have to leave' delusions.Sad, really.Nevertheless it was a worthy read.

    11. How can you move forward when you can't escape the past? Ms. Laverentz does an amazing job of showing how even a deep, abiding love can't overcome obstacles if Jake and Becca aren't willing to let it. If you're looking for an emotionally stirring story that will leave you rooting for a well deserved happily-ever-after look no further than Jake's Return.

    12. I found this one rather frustrating. They both tended to react to circumstances rather than actively do something . Of course people are like that in Real Life, so I on't think this was a bad book or anything - just not the most super enjoyable read.
