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?
I really enjoyed Rule, so I knew I was going to continue this series through. There was just something about Jay Crownover’s bad boys that immediately sucked me, so I couldn’t wait to see what Jet had to offer.
Ok, let’s just get it out of the way that Jet is sexy. Oh my WORD. Musician, eyeliner, broody… he’s just the complete package of hotness. I liked Ayden well enough, especially at the beginning but she started to grate on my nerves throughout the novel. I LOVED Cora. She is definitely one of my favorite characters thus far, and I enjoyed seeing more of her and I’m really looking forward to seeing more of her in the books to come.
I thought Ayden’s side of the story was kind of bland and predictable. It’s not an unfamiliar storyline, with a girl who grows up in a trailer park trying to get away from her past, which obviously catches up with her. Jet’s story was a little more interesting. I loved how he comes off as a carefree, sex crazed musician but he has his side business and really looks out for his mother. His story though, was also one I’ve seen before with the deadbeat dad, and family issues.
One of my favorite parts of the story was the epilogue. I thought it was a great ending to Jet and set the tone for the next book. Even though the storyline was predictable and at times Ayden drove me nuts, I still really enjoyed Jet. The romance and characters didn’t quite pull me in as much as Rule did but it was a good read, and kept me sucked into the story until the end.
I will definitely be continuing this series, and I recommend it to anyone that likes New Adult romance!
