Synopsis: Blair Smith is her own woman. She’s strong, independent, and proud of it. Owning a

dream. Blair takes her work seriously and her men casually, until she makes the best decision
with the worst possible man.

life always seemed to dish out the worst. Once he landed at The Shores Animal Hospital Jax
found a family. The only thing missing is someone to share that family with.

 

My review:

I’ve never watched Jersey Shore, but I suspect I just read a version of it. There seems to be a big group of friends. Blaire is the best friend of Ozma, who is now engaged to Harris and very pregnant. Unlike her bestie, Blaire is anti-relationship and just wants to get laid and often. Jax is basically the male version of her. They both work out a lot, they both date a lot, and they go out with friends a lot. After drinking too much one night they hook up, even though they were off limits to each other to protect the group dynamic. Best sex of their lives, friends with bennies, and so on. They both catch feelings but don’t want to admit it because each thinks the other still doesn’t want a relationship.  Then their little bubble is shattered and they face a very real commitment.

Honestly, I didn’t like either Jax or Blaire very much. All of the characters that had more than a few lines were pretty stereotypical. Ozma’s name is great, though. I haven’t seen that name since the Wizard of Oz collection of stories. Ranger was my favorite in the book but even he needed more book time.

This wasn’t a bad book, really, but it isn’t very good either. If you like reading about young twentysomethings with little responsibility and blossoming existential crises who pride themselves on sleeping with everyone they meet of the opposite sex, but no real substance to the story, then this is for you. Unfortunately, that’s not me.

Excerpt:
Copyright @ Allie York 2019

 

Jax swaggered over just as the coffee pot beeped. He reached around me, leaning in close to take the pot,
and pouring two cups before putting it back. “You always drink that much? I thought you were a health
freak.” He dumped way too much sugar in the coffee.
        “It’s all about balance.” I shrugged putting a teaspoon of sugar in mine. “I’ll go to the gym tomorrow, and it
will all balance out.” I sipped my coffee, watching him lean against the counter like he belonged in my
kitchen. “Do you go?”
        “To the gym? Yeah, that one across town, Frankie’s.” He stared at the coffee, then me. “I’ve slept with too
many women at World Fitness to go back. It got weird.” I nearly spit my coffee.
        “How many?” I looked into his gray eyes. Maybe it was the daiquiris, but Jax was sexy. In his button down,
all the tattoos were covered, but I knew they were there. His arms had these skulls and stuff on them, but
he never looked like a thug. He looked like a badass. Only Jax could pull it off. When he didn’t answer, I
walked past him to the living room, and he followed.
        “Maybe eight?” Jax sat at the other end of the couch, slouching back in a classic manspread. I curled my
legs under me, trying not to give him a clear shot up my skirt. At least my buzz left me a little dignity.
“Maybe eight? You don’t know?” I teased, sipping my coffee.
“No,” Jax said it like he couldn’t give me a number if he tried.
