Book Blurb:
Nina Kennedy was alive…but not living…until she met him. Planes, trains, heights…you name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias. When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who’s pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she’s ever met. Behind Jake Green’s rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina’s outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn’t expecting to fall hard for her in the process. What Nina doesn’t realize, is that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it? Told in two parts from both Nina and Jake’s points of view, Jake Undone is a standalone story and a companion to the novel, Gemini.

Book Review:
So, I have been kind of in a book funk. You probably couldn't tell because of the reviews that I have put up recently, but I have been reading a ton of other books that I'm really just not feeling. You know, once you start reading a genre and are deep in the heart of it, they all kind of feel like they are cast from the same mold. Well, this one breaks from the mold.
Jake has a secret. He is dark, but funny at the same time. The book serves as a great lesson that things are not always as they seem. When you do find out Jake's secret you could just die. You feel everything that Nina feels. 
There really is no better guy with a bigger heart than this guy it seems. I can't believe what he has had to endure during his life and he really seems to be a fantastic book boyfriend. The way he helps Nina with all of her fears in a most interesting way is a testament to Penelope's creativity. I'm kinda wondering how long it took her to create such interesting ways.
For all the love that Jake has in his heart, the things he did for Nina and the man that he is, I give Jake Undone 4.5 Stars.
