Brenna Blixen has the perfect boyfriend. He’s sweet, sexy, loyal, and sure that Brenna is the best thing that’s ever happened to him. But being the perfect girlfriend isn’t as easy as Brenna thought it would be, and the pressure that comes with trying to be Jake’s everything is beginning to weigh on her. When her mother surprises her with a trip to Paris over winter break, she’s torn. She anticipated spending her vacation snuggling with Jake Kelly, ice-skating, drinking cocoa, and relaxing…but what girl in her right mind would turn down a trip to Paris?
Things only get more confusing when she winds up unexpectedly and unavoidably thrown into Saxon Maclean’s arms in the City of Lights. Far away from the comfort and stability she finds at Jake’s side, Brenna faces down the feelings that have been swirling through her since the day she laid eyes on Saxon. Is it fair for her to call herself Jake’s girlfriend when she has so many unresolved feelings about someone else?
Brenna is determined to figure it all out, even if it means making some of the hardest decisions of her entire life. She also learns that every single thing she does has rippling repercussions, some that fill her with total regret. By the time she figures out what her heart truly wants, she realizes that she may not be able to have it after all.
I usually do not review books I purchase, there simply aren’t enough days in the week. I read a book a day, but on top of everything else I post some books simply cannot be reviewed here. Most of those end up on Amazon or B&N, but every so often a book I buy comes along that I have to share. Immediately.
In the beginning of November I reviewed Double Clutch by Liz Reinhardt, a book I gushed about to everyone I know. (Some of which ran out and bought it immediately and also loved, so if you haven’t bought it – do so!!!) While I was sitting in the middle of the Twilight marathon, Preet @ A Written Rhapsody texted me to tell me that Junk Miles (the sequel) was available. Torture. I got home around 3am and went to see if it was available on B&N yet, it wasn’t. When I woke up it was, thankfully. I finished it later that afternoon. (Sorry, Liz, but when I really LOVE a book I must consume it all immediately.)
Junk Miles picks up around Christmas time and Brenna receives a present from her mother – a vacation to Paris that leaves in just a few days. While there, she learns more about Saxon and explores her feelings for him. When she returns home she has no idea what to do.
I’d first just like to say, I love Brenna. Really I do, but this girl needs some sense talked into her. (I’d say physical harm, but I like her too much for that.) She has a great boyfriend and this other amazing guy who is kind of obsessed with her..and yet she can’t make up her mind. I wanted to scream at her – it makes me wonder if either is really right for her. Sigh. On that note, these boys…oh my. I have to admit, if I was Brenna I’d probably have issues picking too. Saxon finally shows a bit more of his real personality and we get to see why he is the way he is. Jake shows a bit more of his bad side and I loved it. I kept cheering for him for not being a pushover.
I cannot wait until Spring when book 3 is released, I need to know what is next for these three.
