Book Review: Jake Understood

Jake Understood (Jake #2)
by Penelope Ward

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.

Jennifer's thoughts: Absolutely Loved Jake Understood! But I haven't read a book by Penelope Ward that I haven't loved.

It had been a while since I read Jake Undone, but it didn't matter. This book could have been read as a standalone.

I love the way the author let Jake actually tell his and Nina's story. It was great. It was basically the same story, but different. It's hard to explain, so you'll just have to read it. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Nina and Jake fell in love in Jake Undone and their love is even stronger in Jake Understood!

Emma's thoughts: OMG - Amazeballs. I loved EVERYTHING about this book and it was heavenly being back with Jake again. Penelope Ward amazes me each and every time I read one of her books.

Jake Understood picks up AFTER the events of Jake Undone as Jake struggles because Nina has walked out on him. There are repetitious chapters, but Penelope delivered them in such a way that they were fresh, and of course, from Jake's POV as well as giving is a hefty dose of new content.

My little heart skipped a beat of delight when we re-entered Nina's POV in the present day - I love that girl.

The dynamic of their relationship sizzles and pops from the pages and I felt every damn heartbreaking moment. Throughtout the book I prayed that the two sorted out whatever problems they were facing, because - y'know, I love them!

I thoroughly enjoyed every meaty morsel of Jake Understood. Absolutely FANTASTIC.
