Jackson is hands down my favorite read this week. This is the book I couldn’t walk away from. I was finding five minutes here or there to try and finish this book, ignoring my adult obligations, hiding on the beach from my children. The characters drew me in, particularly the heroine Sky. I adore their story and how they change each other. I also love the theme of the book, this idea of truly living. If you haven’t picked up this book you need to do now!
Modern Belle’s Review…
I absolutely love everything about this book! I love Jackson. I love Sky. And, of course, I love the whole Sexy Bastard crew. I completely wish I could be friends with these people! Additionally, I love the plot of this story and the writing style of Eve Jagger.
Let’s start with Jackson. If you have read the series, you have encountered Jackson and know he is the over-protective, business-oriented architect of the group. He experiences a horrific tragedy in his life that has shaped his personality and planning nature. He is constantly looking towards the future versus truly living in the moment. That is until he meets Sky. She is live-in-the-moment, have experiences type of girl. Just like Jackson, she has also had a tragic experience shape her outlook on life. Jackson is a great hero because he is honorable. His love and dedication to his friends and sister makes him one of the good guys. I adore Skylar; she is among my favorite heroines of all times. Her whole live in the moment attitude towards life is amazing. It does get out-of-hand a little bit, but ultimately her whole perspective on life really spoke to me. She is brave and takes the bull-by-the-horns, so to speak. Sky’s character is infectious! I love them both individually but even more as a couple. What really drew me into the story is the relationship between Jackson and Sky. They are the perfect example of a relationship that results in the betterment of the individual. Her freedom loosens Jackson up, and Jackson gets Sky to begin to consider the future, although she fights tooth and nail. Sky is resistant to change her transient ways, and Jackson, while beginning to live a looser life-style, can’t live in the same free-spirit fashion as Sky. As always, I love the whole Sexy Bastard crew. The supportive nature of this crew and the diversity of the group makes me love them.
The plot of the story is great. It is appropriately placed, the conflict makes sense with the development of the characters, and the resolution to the story is perfect. There are also a few surprises that I didn’t see coming in terms of character development, so that always makes a story better for me as a reader.
This is truly a story about living your life instead of planning for the future, so their story really resonated with me! You need the Sexy Bastards in your life! I LOVE this series! I cannot sing the praises of Jackson enough. If you haven’t met Cash, Ryder, and Knox, you need to rectify this immediately! You will not regret it! I personally can’t wait to get Parker’s story next.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
I thought I knew what I wanted.
The perfect life, the perfect wife.
And then I met Skylar.
Turns out what I wanted wasn’t what I needed.
She’s spontaneous, beautifully chaotic. She’s an irresistible storm about to let loose. She dances like a firecracker and finds the sexiest ways to get in trouble. She breaks into buildings and knows all of Atlanta’s best taco trucks. She doesn’t check the boxes on my list–she blows my list out of the water.
I thought I knew what I wanted, but now all I want is her.
But our lives are so different. She’s chasing adventure and determined to never settle down. I’m climbing the ladder to success, setting the groundwork for my ambition and the family that I hope to build. When our worlds come together, will they fit together or will they clash?
