Book Review: Jet by Jay Crownover


Synopsis from Goodreads:

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

Having been completely taken by Rule when I finally read it I jumped right into Jet when I finished. I loved Ayden in the first book, so I couldn’t wait to read her story in the second. Plus, Jet was a kind of mysterious sort and I was curious to see what Ms. Crownover would give us there.

Jet was awesome, straight up. I had already gotten to know Ayden a bit in book one, but in book two she becomes so much more. I have the highest respect for that character, I’m not even kidding. Learning about her and what she’s had to overcome, it’s awesome. That is a character of motivation in a lot of ways. Jet, too, was a great character to get to know. I wasn’t quite expecting what I got, but in the end, it all made sense. Crownover made his character so much more than a rockstar.

The story itself keeps you reading as well. I didn’t want to put down the book because I had to know what was going to happen next. These characters just constantly made things happen and there was that constant yearning for answers and the need to turn-pages.

This was another of the no instant gratification love stories which is actually one of the things I love about the book. There’s all this tension, and its even felt by their group of friends which makes it all the more believable to me. Plain and simple, it was a good read.

The only complaint I have with this book carries over from the first. Editing. I wish so hard that these books were edited better. I won’t stop reading them because of it, hell, I CANNOT wait to hit that Purchase button on my nook Tuesday even though I’m flat broke, but it’s still just too noticeable to ignore.

Bottom line, Jet was awesome. This series is awesome. The characters, the stories, the drama, all of it. Fantastic books and I can’t wait for more! 4/5 stars.
