Want It by Jennifer Chance

I like Jennifer Chance, so when this book came up to review, I jumped at it, I’m pretty sure I have read the first two books in the series already, but this book really does work as a stand alone, so don’t be worried about picking it up and being lost. So quick synopsis is Erin and Zander have a history, and let’s just say things didn’t really end well for them. Erin did something that ended up kind of messing up Zander’s life, and her reasoning for doing so, well for me at least, felt flimsy to say the least. When Erin finds out her mom is being held in Mexico, she turns to Zander to ask some questions, so she can go down there and get her mom back (Zander is in the military so he’s the only one she knows who would have the knowledge needed). So Erin annoyed me. A lot. Like super a lot. There were times that I really did think she ventured over to the too stupid to live category. I often times felt she lacked even the most basic of common sense. Also her reasoning/justification for her actions never worked for me. But as the book went on, it bothered me less, maybe she grew up over the course of the book, or maybe I just started giving her some credit cause after all she was in a really difficult situation that would make anyone act a little strangely. Zander I liked. […]

Fake It by Jennifer Chance

This is the second book in the series, and I really did enjoy the first book, so I was more than happy to read this book as well. We were briefly introduced to the character Anna in the first book, but you definitely don’t need to have read the first book in order to enjoy this one, so feel free to step into the middle of this series. The premise of this book is kinda cute, Anna has been talking up this guy to her friends, so they will stop trying to find her a match (basically she has an imaginary boyfriend). But now a wedding is coming up and she has to produce this boyfriend or everyone will know she lied. Enter the hot, motorcycle riding neighbor, Jake. Anna is hesitant about this newfound “relationship” and stays that way throughout the entire book. There were many times during the book where I wanted to shake her and tell her she needed to get her head out of the sand and start actually living her life. Anna works to much, like way to much, to the point where I don’t see how she is able to maintain any relationships with anyone. And another thing that really bothered me about Anna was that her ex works with her and he is a total dirt-bag who talks down to her and tries to make her look bad, and she lets him do it. I really needed her to stand up for herself. […]

Rock It by Jennifer Chance

I think everyone has that one childhood crush, some celebrity actor or musician that they well convinced they completely loved. Granted not everyone has 15 scrapbooks worth of information on said crush like Lacey did, oh and I think most of us grow out of it before we go to college, but even so I think most people can relate to Lacey’s crush on Dante. I think what I liked most about this book was that Lacey wasn’t some poor fan that Dante just picked out of a crowd and then changed her world with his riches, but rather that they met while Lacey was working, doing a serious, professional job, and that throughout the novel she is dedicated to her job. Dante is a rockstar, with a rockstar like following of women/girls who are obsessed with him. He’s one of those Disney kids, except all grown up. To me it seems like Dante is a bit on the lonely side, he’s not fulfilled by the fans throwing themselves at him, he wants to be around people who know him, who want to be with him for who he is on the inside and not the public image. Okay so that story has been told a time or two, but it works for this book, it doesn’t come off feeling overdone or overly cliche. I like that Dante is a good guy, he doesn’t have an overblown ego like you would think he might, and has a good heart. Lacey, […]
