Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . .
Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.
Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.
My ReviewI’ve been on a lot of road trips, but none were as fun as reading Jack and Jessica’s trip. Jessica is well guarded, she not only scared of love, she’s terrified of it. Luckily she never had to deal with any of those feelings until she met Jack.
Jack is the complete opposite of Jessica, he sees what he wants and goes for it. He doesn’t take no for an answer and he’s been through enough in life to know whats worth fighting for.
Our story starts off right in the middle, Jack and Jess already have a tenseful past. When I requested this book in netgalley, I didn’t realize it was the last book in the series. I don’t think I missed much, because the other books in the series are about other characters. So ignoring the fact that we start in the middle Jessica needs to drive down to Lousiana to visit her “dying” grandmother. Coincidentally, Jacks also has to go, his brother dispeared and he’s pretty sure he can find him.
Jack’s brilliant idea is to hitch a ride with Jess, but since he knows her, he decides to force her into taking him. This lead to them arguing and being sassy with each other
Even though they were adorable, it was frustrating to see their relationship. It felt like they constantly took one step forward and two steps back. Going on a road trip with friends will break or make a relationship, which is why the whole idea for this was so intruiging. Yet the problem in the relationshio Jack, it was all Jess. It could have easily have been avoided if she would have just given in.
It was written with alternating point of views and I loved Jack’s point of view. When reading from a guys point of view my biggest pet peeve is when the guys don’t have their own opinion and most of their thoughts are just about how great the main girl is. That was not the case, even though he did think Jess was great he still had his own problems and demons to deal with.
The story line was a little slow, there were a few points where it simply dragged on. Jess’s story mostly bored me and made me roll my eyes at her fickle personality and interests but Jacks story was as interesting as it was constant.
Overall, this was a cute read and is great for New Adult fans but don’t expect too much.

Who was your favorite point of view too write from?
Jack! For whatever reason, I always prefer writing in my male's point of view. Maybe because it's fun to be in a guy's head and try to figure out what a guy what think, say, and do in certain situations. When I'm writing a female point of view, it's easy. I rarely have to think through my female characters' actions and thoughts because I'm a girl and I get how we operate. But pretending to be a guy is a whole different thing. It's more challenging and that usually makes it more fun. Jack, especially, was a blast to write because he's big and tough, with a dark past and a rough home life, but he's also sweet and honest, and trying to change his life around. I loved being in his head.
How did you come with Jenna's tattoos & love for jewelry?
I based Jenna's character on a good friend of mine in real life named Kristen. Kristen is beautiful and wild and cracks me up with her cleverness so I just had to write her into one of my books. Kristen has some amazing tattoos and a few fierce piercings so, naturally, I gave Jenna those same kinds of tattoos and piercings, and just for fun I decided to make Jenna a jewelry lover with all her rings and whatnot. In a lot of ways, Jenna was one of my easiest characters to write since I had such a great friend/model to work from. ;)
I had the most fun reading all of Jenna And Jacks adorable fights, what was your favorite scenes to write?
Haha. I love this question. My favorite scene to write was probably when Jenna first found Jack in her car before she left for Louisiana. Jenna was startled by Jack's presence, and when he informed her that he planned to accompany her on her road trip back home, she swiftly refused. The two of them bickered back and forth before she finally gave in, and those first few minutes with them on the road together were hilarious. I smiled the whole time I was writing that scene.
