REVIEW: Hunting JC by Dominique Eastwick

***This book was originally reviewed for Storm Goddess Book Reviews.***
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summary:

Hunter Brooks has spent the last decade staying as far away from the Sherman family and Jacinda Sherman as possible. No matter how much Hunter might want Jacinda, honor dictates a man doesn’t go near a best friend's baby sister. But now, she is safely married so all should be safe. Can Hunter pay J.C.'s price and still come out on top? Her whole life, Jacinda Sherman let everyone tell her what she can and cannot have. That includes Hunter. Now she's grown up, divorced, and what J.C. wants J.C. gets. This time, Hunter won't be leaving without J.C. getting what she desires. Can these two lovers find a way to live happily ever after? Or will life throw a wrench in their carefully laid plans?

Thoughts:

So right off the bat you have to love the adopted family dynamic. You get enough back story and interaction that you practically feel a part of it. What I love about JC in particular is that she knows what she wants and goes after it fairly ruthlessly. Hunter has always been loyal to his friend, Tony, who is one of JC’s brothers, but with her behavior, he’s toast. It’s a good thing we got all that back story though, because without it their initial encounters just wouldn’t be believable. As it is, it still feels a tad rushed.

This story was predictable in places (though let’s face it, what story isn’t to some degree these days?), but there were still some twists and turns thrown in there. The story and the relationship started out a little two-dimensional for me, but it picks up and once it does, it never lets go. It turns into a bit of a tear jerker in fact as obstacle after obstacle is set in front of Hunter and JC and they go through so much turmoil.

A book with such emotional investment that I cried more than once as well as laughed, Hunting JC is a beautiful story about self-confidence, learning to truly love and trust, and the bonds of family. You will NOT be disappointed with picking this one up! I can’t wait to read Tony’s story.
