Author: Juliette Jones
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

Synopsis

Jake Wolfe is bad to the bone. He breaks rules; it’s what he does. He uses people; it’s who he is. Occasionally he wonders what it would be like to experience some other emotion besides the crazy cocktail of lust and rage that fuels him. Mostly he just goes with it....

Zara Ashe has green eyes and an almost-perfect grade point average. When it comes to getting straight A’s at her Ivy League university, sometimes a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do. As long as her virginity remains in tact, she’s willing to indulge her professors’ whims to maintain the results she needs.

But when a surly, drop-dead gorgeous stranger takes up residence in her house while her parents are away in Europe, things get complicated. Zara soon learns that Jake can provide the kind of education all the PhDs in the world won’t teach her. Will he break her in the process, or can Zara tame this badboy and prove to him that his dark damages can’t conceal his heart of gold? 

*TAMING JAKE WOLFE is a prequel to JAKE (BILLIONAIRE, Book 3), which is due for release on September 1, 2015.

My Review

This novella is all about Jake’s beginnings, he’s 18 and irresistible to all the girls at his high school. He’s full of angst and is perpetually horny, not one to have a normal relationship he has a continuous stream of dirty and raunchy encounters with girls that throw themselves at the hottie at hand. He is sent to stay with his brother’s mentor so he has a chance to attend a decent college when he meets Zara. She is gorgeous and the education they both get doesn’t necessarily all just happen in class.  It’s steamy and sexy and just drool worthy!
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading anything by Juliette Jones up until now and all I can say is WOW!! This is the prequel to the 3rd book Jake in the Billionaire series, and I can tell you I have skipped off and bought the first 2 after reading this one and will be grabbing his book as soon as it’s released. This doesn’t end in a HEA but it shows us what has gone on to form Jake into the adult he is and I can’t wait to meet him again.

I’m giving Taming Jake Wolfe 4 steamy stars and definitely recommend it be one clicked!!

Excerpt
Prologue

Nova

December 28, the day of the funeral

It’s a strange feeling, getting ready to watch someone get put under the ground into their final resting place. I’ve been to enough funerals to know that my senses always become hyper-aware of everything going on around me: the touch of the wind seems stronger, the sun a little more blinding, the smell of the leaves, grass, and fresh dirt overpowering. It’s like my mind is reaching out and trying to grasp each aspect of the moment, when part of me wants nothing more than to forget.
I’m actually at the church earlier than I’m supposed to be and I don’t even know why, other than that sitting home for a second longer just didn’t seem possible. So I left the house without telling anyone and got in my cherry-red Chevy Nova, the car my dad left to me when he died, and drove it to the church where my dad’s and Landon’s funeral took place. And in just a bit, I’ll say good-bye to another person I once knew and will never see again.
Now that I’m here, staring at the brick building with a white tower pointing to the sky, I’m not sure what I should do. I’m three hours early to a funeral, which might say a lot about me. A lot of people would likely show up late, wanting to avoid death for as long as possible, but I’ve become so familiar with it it’s unsettling.
After sitting in the car for about ten minutes, watching snowflakes fall from the sky and frost the grass and the windshield, I decide to take video instead. I didn’t bring the fancy camera my mom gave me, but the one on my phone works and honestly I use that one a lot more because it’s handy for sporadic recording, which seems to be my specialty.
I blow out a deep breath as I sit back in the seat, aim the camera at myself, and hit record. I have the screen flipped to me and my image immediately pops up. I look tired. The bags under my eyes are pretty obvious, even though I’ve tried to cover them up with makeup, and my brown hair wasn’t being cooperative so I ended up pulling it up into a ponytail. I’m wearing a black dress and earrings and the contrast with my fair skin makes me look pallid.
“It’s amazing how everything can seem so perfect one moment and then suddenly it’s not. How quickly perfection can evaporate… how rare it is.” I pause, gathering my thoughts. “I’ve seen a lot of death. More than the normal person, probably. I watched my father’s life vanish in front of me within minutes. Found my boyfriend’s body right after he took his own life. Too early. Too suddenly. Both of them. I never had time to prepare myself and I thought it was the worst feeling in the world. I always wondered how different it would be, if it ever happened again. If maybe the third or fourth time around, I wouldn’t hurt so badly. If it’d be easier letting someone go now that I’ve had so much practice.” I tuck a fallen strand of my bangs behind my ear and swallow the lump in my throat. “And maybe it has gotten easier… but it still hurts. I still shed tears… it’s still agonizing… painful…” I trail off as a few tears slip from my eyes and roll down my cheeks. “Even now, just thinking about some of the stuff I saw… I should have stopped it… should have done things differently…” I trail off, staring at the window. “But I didn’t… and now they’re gone forever.”

/:\Launch Day Blitz and Review/:\Come To Me Recklessly by A.L. Jackson

 
 His heart was turned off…

Until she turned him on…

Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of love years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the physical perks with none of the emotional mess, hes convinced everyone that hes satisfied—everyone but himself.

Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, shes deluded herself into believing shes content. But there is one boy she never forgot—her first love—and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.

When Christopher's sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires send them on collision course of sex, lies, and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.

By the waist, he lifted me, pinning me to the wall with the hard planes of his body. I could do nothing but wrap my legs around his hips. He rocked against me, the friction of his jeans igniting that fire, the threat of Ben fueling those flames. He buried his face in my neck as if he didnt want to see, his bite aggressive as he turned to nip at my jaw, at my chin, moving to my lips. "Told you I wouldn't let you go. Not ever again."
His frenzied voice ached with regret.
"Never," I told him, grinding myself on his erection that was pressed tight between my thighs. I felt desperate to erase the distance Ben had tried to wedge between us.
Christopher seemed even more fractured over it, unable to fathom the idea of what Ben had tried to force on me.
I just got you back and hes trying to take you away.
Im hereIm here.
Here, he said as if a demand, tearing at my clothes, overwrought as he rushed to palm every inch of exposed skin. My shoulders were pressed to the wall, my chest heaving with harsh breaths. He pushed up my shirt and dragged off the cups of my bra. My breasts felt heavy and full as he looked on them with a stuttered groan. He splayed his hands across my back, dragging me forward, and his mouth was there, drawing my nipple into his hot mouth, sucking hard before he turned to the other.
I bucked, my hands fists in his hair. 
He wrapped an arm low around my waist, his body leaving mine for a fraction of a second, and without setting me down, he dragged my shorts and panties from my legs. Fumbling, he pushed his jeans and underwear down around his thighs.
Without warning, he thrust into me.
I cried out from the perfect invasion.
No condom.
No heed.
Christopher took me completely.


Recklessly.
 
  If you have followed my reviews at all then you know how completely in love with AL Jackson’s writing I am.  The woman keeps getting better with every story she writes, and there are no words for all of the feels that she pulls out of you while you are reading.  Come to Me Recklessly is no different.  Every sentence is packed with emotion and the story she weaves is so beautifully written you don’t want it to end.

I became very intrigued with Christopher when I read Come to Me Quietly.  I needed to know his story and was so excited when Amy said it was coming.  He is a tortured soul and as his story unfolds with Samantha we see why.  This is a beautiful story about two people who get a second chance to start again.

There is a healthy dose of Aly and Jared in this book so all of you who fell in love with them in Come to Me Quietly and Come to Me Softly will be happy to see them.  It’s also great to see Aly with her brother and Sam.

There was so much pain in all of their pasts, and seeing them come full circle back to each other and happy made me happy.  Once again Amy did a brilliant job weaving a story that you will NOT forget
