Five Awesome Stars *****

Surprise new release by author Jewel E. Ann! If you read Undeniably You, this new book, you are going to LOVE!!!! Because the story is about Sydney’s sister, Avery.

Avery is a bit (or a lot) of a Diva. She’s had terrible luck in love but recently things have been looking up for her after she started dating an older millionaire. Her rich boyfriend bought Avery her own spa and spoils her to no end. But unfortunately for Avery, her “prince charming “ turned out to be just like any other ex; a liar and a cheater. Deflated, disappointed and broke, Avery leaves town with her sister’s dog, Swarley (remember him???) to her dad’s house looking for some family support, since her sister is traveling.

More bad news for Avery; her Father is getting married to a much younger woman, that she’s never even met. Her dad sold his house and is moving to another state to be with his new wife and Avery is coming along to check things out. Turns out her new stepmom to be is actually great, so Avery has to go back to LA to sort her life and she’s catching a ride with a gorgeous, vegetarian, restaurant owner who is taking her along his camping trip, a favor to her Dad’s new wife.

Jake and Avery hate each other on sight. But the attraction is also very, very strong, even if they don’t want to admit it. So on this journey, they go, and along the way, they will find many things, including themselves.

This story is a sort of enemies to lovers. I loved the characters banter, and the plot was hilarious and very entertaining. I wasn’t a big fan of Avery in the beginning but slowly she won my heart. It was really endearing to read about her struggles and ultimately to experience her growth. Very cool book, I have no doubt that anyone who read it will have a grand time.

*****FIVE++++++++ STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

”I love you like an acoustic song. The words mean more. The emotions are magnified. It’s like the stars…during the day we don’t see them, but at night when the world around us feels stripped and bare, they shine so brightly.”
I’ve never seen anything as beautiful as you are in this very moment. Our love is…flawed but perfect.
It’s honest and open. It’s naked, Ave…our love is naked love.”
 

 

 

I honestly feel like a broken record whenever I review one of Jewel E. Ann’s books. She is truly one of the most talented authors out there today. I have read all of her books and have loved all of them. She doesn’t seem to have it in her to write a terrible story. I have several authors who I hold with high regard and even they have written a few bombs, but not Jewel.

 

 

NAKED LOVE is the perfect example of an enemies-to-loversromantic comedy. It was incredibly steamy, hysterically funny, and the plot was amazing. Take two people who are complete opposites in every way and force them to go on a road trip cross country, with a crazy but loveable dog, and you are sure to have yourself one wildly entertaining book!

If you have never read any of Jewel’s books before, I highly recommend that you make every effort to set aside some time to get to them. The main couple in this book are from a couple of stories Jewel wrote back in 2014– ”UNDENIABLY YOU” and the ”HOLDING YOU” series. I promise you, these are books you will be so happy that you read. I have to warn that they are off the charts angsty and you will be needing plenty of alcohol to numb the pain but hang in there, the HEA’s are worth it!!!

 

 

 

Jake is a sexy ex MMA fighter turned Vegan chef, who has a generous heart but also despises people who come off as materialistic and fake. Avery is a beautiful young woman, who has made some poor life choices and now finds her world turned upside down. She loves the finer things, is very much a girly girl and has used her looks to get what she wants from her ex-boyfriends. These two are like oil and vinegar, but their chemistry is so hot, it’s downright explosive. They know how to push each other’s buttons but ultimately they help each other strive to be better versions of themselves.

It’s so very hard not to fall madly in love with Jake. Jewel has the knack for creating some of the most fantastic and swoon-worthy book boyfriends. My ultimate favorite, Lautner, makes an appearance which was the icing on an already delicious cake.

 

 

 

 

Avery was very hard to like in the beginning because she comes off as being superficial and only into her appearance and designer clothes, but you have to be patient when you are reading one of Jewel’s books. Her characters tend to be flawed but eventually, when she finally peels back their layers, you see the beauty that is within them and that’s what happens with Avery.

I could write a novel about my feelings about this book and yet I still think I wouldn’t be able to write a review that is worthy of this story. I hope that if anything I convinced one person who’s never read any of Jewel’s books, to pick this one up and give her a chance.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 5+++
Angst: 5+++
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

NAKED LOVE is currently available. It’s definitely one of my “Best of 2019”!!
