I’m the Jackpot of all Men.
The Jackhammer of all F*cks.
The Jack of all Trades.
If you haven’t guessed it yet, the name’s Jack. For the last seven years, I gave up my freedom for a crime I didn’t commit, and all for money, my retirement, and my dreams.
When it was time to leave, my cellmate asked me for a favor. Find his sister, give her a letter, and leave. Easy, right?
Nothing about Ahri was easy. She was a stubborn beauty, an intoxicating mystery, and a feisty fury. She was nowhere near perfect, but perfection was overrated, and Ahrianna Lore was underrated.
I went along with the lie of who she thought I was—just some guy looking at the apartment next door. It was supposed to be a quick hookup, but curiosity got the best of me.
I read the letter.
Jack is unapologetic for the life he led, he took whatever job was asked of him, his only rule, he wouldn’t hurt women or children, everyone else is fair game. While he served time for a crime he didn’t commit, he has done far more including murder that makes him less than desirable.
Ahri is struggling to work two jobs and study at the same time. She has dark secrets in her past, and the last thing she needs is a cocky, unapologetic man in her life.
The chemistry between the two characters is sizzling, and this book is not for readers who like a light-hearted storyline. The sex is hot and dirty, and the childhood experiences both characters experienced is the stuff of nightmares.
This is the debut work of author Demi Vice. The richness and complexity of the characters takes great skill, and I am in awe of this author for accomplishing what many experienced authors could only hope to. She took two characters who would typically be the ones we would have little sympathy for and makes them likeable and makes us root for their happy ever after.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
