One night with the wrong woman can change your life….

Jack Simon’s road to the White House has been a smooth one until a night with the notorious Donovan James becomes a roadblock he can’t escape. Suddenly he’s America’s number one story and it has nothing to do with politics. Jack’s tangled with this woman before and knows they’re no good together because the only thing they’re good for is a four letter word…hurt. He should get on with his life and concentrate on his job. But that’s hard to do when the one thing standing in his way, is the one thing he wants the most…

Donovan James, international singing sensation, has made a living singing songs about heartache and pain, two things she grew up on. But it’s time to set down some roots and the only man she wants is a man she’s all wrong for. A man she’s never stopped loving—Jack Simon. They’d had it all once, until they didn’t. And yet she can’t help but wonder if a second shot together just might be the game changer she needs. Or if old secrets can still ruin the only man she’s ever loved…



Rating: four-star-rating-md 4/5


I have always been a fan of Juliana Stone’s books. So… I was not surprised that yet again, she came out with a bang! “Jack” was superb, entertaining, funny, and emotional. I was skeptical about this novel in the beginning, but I am quite glad that I gave it a chance.

Jack is such an interesting character! He is a hard working, alpha brooding male with charisma and a spicy attitude. When he runs into his ex, Donovan, I couldn’t help but be giddy with glee at the aspect of where I knew this story would begin.

I have never read many books about exes getting back together or running into one another; for which I am so glad because it made this book unique for me.

I cannot say that I have ever gotten much excitement about the prospect of two old lovers getting back together. I always felt it was too close to the real world, and we read to get away from the norm.

But, this book, was so gravitating, bold, entertaining, and witty. I was completely dumfounded and so happy to read it. The secondary characters caught my attention as well; I am excited to learn more about Maverick! Be ready!

This novel touches you emotionally and you may spill a few weeping tears. So I would say: suggest it to your peers, buy a few copies for them and/or your family, and get ready to meet Jack and Donovan! You guys better get ready for a thrill ride!
