Jake Undone by Penelope Ward Review


Nina Kennedy was alive...but not living...until she met him.
Planes, trains, name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias. When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who's pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she's ever met.

Behind Jake Green's rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina's outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn't expecting to fall hard for her in the process.

What Nina doesn't realize is, that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it?

Told in two parts from both Nina and Jake's points of view, Jake Undone is a STANDALONE story and a companion to the novel, Gemini.

***Author's note: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

My Thoughts:
4.5/5 Stars
This story is about facing your fears head on and learning how to deal with them.
Nina leaves home for nursing school and moves into an apartment with her guy friend and two others. When she meets her roommates she is blown away by one in particular, Jake Green. He is everything she steers clear from... a Bad Boy... Hot and Tattooed with a Man whore persona. When Nina struggles with math she has to turn to her dark, mysterious engineer room mate. He begins tutoring her in exchange for taking her to face her fears. Together they embark on a journey of a beautiful romance with tons of emotion.
What makes this book so special is the fact that Nina and Jake show each other how to live again. They share intimate talks and texts. They open up to one another and share their deepest secrets. I loved their romance. It definitely pulls on your heartstrings.
Two people, both vulnerable, come together to share the most intimate parts of their lives.
The Author did a great job with the writing. There was just enough details to make you feel all the things the characters felt. The twists in this story keep you guessing and the storyline sucks you in.
I highly recommend this book!
