Synopsis: Jenny meets Chance for the first time when she is assigned as his partner in class, and they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie. Suddenly the whole school is now convinced she and the biggest heartbreaker have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really want it to be the truth. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends” but that might be the biggest lie of all. Continue reading “Review: Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock”
The thing I love most about the Wait for You series by J. Lynn are the male main characters. These guys are gorgeous, a little cocky, but kind and loving. They would be too good to be true if they didn’t have their own flaws and a few secrets, which is likely why the author ensured the men weren’t perfect. However that is not the most important thing, but rather how these guys treat the women in the books:
Plot: Jillian and Brock are thrown back together after their friendship had imploded. The story occasionally goes back to the past with Jillian’s memories so we slowly discover exactly what went wrong to have caused her to cut him completely from her life. Normally flashbacks annoy me, but in this I looked forward to them as my curiosity was killing me.
Setting: This novel takes place six years after the last book and we are back in Shepherdstown. Lima Academy built a satellite training centre near to where the owner’s daughter had been attending school and much of the novel takes place at that centre.
Author: This amazing author writes adult and new-adult novels under the pen name of J.Lynn and young adult novels under Jennifer L Armentrout. She lives in the States with her husband and adorable dog, Loki. When she isn’t writing, she is generally reading, working out, or watching bad zombie movies.
Plot: This novel is truly heart-wrenching, far more so than the previous books. I won’t get into that because of spoilers, but I may have shed a tear…
Plot: Unlike the other novels, this novella cannot pass as new adult. Both characters are in their late twenties to early thirties, fully enmeshed in their careers, and have the adulating thing down. This storyline is a common one with the whole witnessing a murder and falling in love with your protector bit.
Cover: Given that this novella is found in an anthology, the cover doesn’t really fit the series. If there is a cover for this story that better fits I sadly did not come across it, as I don’t particularly care for the 1001 Dark Nights. Even though I adore pink, the overall aesthetic of this one is dark. I understand the look needed to be generalized enough for all the stories within, but this does not even catch the eye.
