Release Day Sale

Title:  Jake Understood (Jake #2)  
Author:  Penelope Ward
Publication Date:  March 30th 2015
Plot:  From the New York Times bestselling author of Jake Undone, comes a full-length standalone companion novel and sequel. 

A different side to the story: Jake’s side.

“We’re getting a new roommate,” they said. 

I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis. 


It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer. 

I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn’t betting on was becoming addicted to her.

But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she’d be gone.

I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn’t fall in love. 

In Jake Understood, pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake’s point of view combined with all-new material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can stand alone but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via Soluri PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

First we are utterly undone by the woes and delights that are Jake Green. And now we get to get inside his head?! Can life get any sweeter?!

Jake Understood is a complimentary companion to Jake Undone told from Jake’s perspective.

It was a gooey-goodness of give and take, as we are regaled of his and Nina’s story, from start to end with some inserted scenes and tidbits that we have not witnessed before, as well as, some post Jake Undonematerial.

I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive since I was worried we would just be corralled with the same info we already know, but it was instead very refreshing, informative and innovative, and made me fall in love with Jake all over again.

I would love to go into more detail about why I loved this read, but seeing as most of you already know the story, I will not recap what is common knowledge and will cease further comment as to not to divulge any spoilers in the additional plot content that we readers are given.

All I will say is, get ready to one-click this baby as I was surely not disappointed! Everything felt more complete, more dual oriented, had extra depth, and was better explained.

Loved this heartwarming and long-awaited follow up!!
