Okay so I am trying to show some semblance of professionalism but I swear on everything I was going to title this post “Jake I will love you forever as my #4 BBF since Mitch is #3 because of how you love Nina it’s just not as hard as Mitch loved Skylar though its close Review” but can you imagine someone typing that in their search bar YIKES!
I am not going to bother with a synopsis for this book because if you didn’t read Jake Undone don’t go any further. I don’t plan on posting any spoilers, however, we can’t be friends if you aren’t a fan of Penelope Ward’s work. Like seriously if you’ve never read her books..slap yourself then just lie and say you did.
I FREAKIN LOVED THIS BOOK! I totally thought this was going to be one of my favorite books told from the male character’s POV and I was going to get to love him a little more. Well it was that and sooooo much more. Jake is re-telling his story to friends Skylar and Mitch while waiting to hear from Nina so the story goes back and forth from the past to the present which makes this already better than I expected. You can’t help but fall more in love with him after reading this story. Jake is loyal to a fault, sexy and loving. The way he loves Nina is what girls dream of. I mean literally the reason we read these books.
Ms. Ward didn’t just stop with Jake we also get a glimpse into Nina’s head as the story progresses more into present situations. So at roughly 55% of the story we get a wonderful dual POV continuance of this fantastic couple’s love and struggles. They’ve grown so it’s only right that Ms. Ward has grown this story with them. I laughed, got teary eyed, reminisced and fell further in love with Jake & Nina and origami bats. I couldn’t put this book down and wasn’t sad when it ended, I was completely satisfied. It felt complete. It felt whole. So 5+ stars for a book that took me 3hrs to read because it was simply that beautiful.
