Jerk It By Lani Lynn Vale
Book/Novel Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Book/Novel Title: Jerk It
Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.
But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.
From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.
But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.
Murphy loved Mavis.
At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.
From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.
When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.
But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.
Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.
This enemies-to-lovers story was full of Italian mamas, broken hearts, steamy tension, erotic calluses, Murphy Haze, and tears. Yes, of course, tears. Bring your tissues, fellow bookworms, because the heartache is strong in this one. Thank gods for the healing and love parts!
Absolutely loved Jerk It! This is second chance romance in a way. Mavis and Murphy first meet years ago, they played together as kids. Years go by until they meet again, at first it’s a hate you type of relationship. Murphy will play a big part in Mavis’s son Vlad’s birth along with always being in the right place to help her. Murphy’s story is not pretty, be prepared with a box of tissues and your favorite drink. I cried fat ugly tears, laughed out loud and ahhh though out Jerk It. I felt it is an emotional story but so worth all the tears. Happy Reading!!
Damn this book slayed me! I ugly snot SOBBED through this book. I got this book on such a deep level! Thank you Ms.Vale for one of the worst cries in years. I look forward to the next.
I thought I was reading a romance book not a diet and workout book, I’ve been reading LLV from the beginning of her very first series till now, lately her books have became very boring sure you got some cuss words you got a few sex scenes that’s the same old,same old story line.I understand she gets inspiration from her everyday life activities but to devote a whole series on the same thing CrossFit hell I don’t even know what it is, all the exercise and dieting has fried her brain cells and her creativity in writing books, her book used to be $2.99 now she jack up the price to 5.99 and she downsize how many pages are in her books. I know I’m being harsh in my review but when I pay money and after all these years I’m probably up into the hundreds of dollars I’ve spent on your books us readers your fans deserves better then the crap you are writing.
All morning wasted. Just kidding, I couldn’t put the book down. Even though it made me cry, horrible ugly cry, I had to finish it. Mavis and Murphy have a complicated history that left love boiling under the surface. I enjoyed getting lost in their story.
