BLOG TOUR: Want It by Jennifer Chance


Thanks to Barclay Publicity for hosting this blog tour. I am sharing my review of Jennifer Chance's Want It today. Happy reading!

*****************************

Summary:

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations ... and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

Thoughts:

Just like the last book, I didn’t read the back blurb or anything, I just dove into the book. Each book in this series stands alone really well. You see the same friends, but nothing more. The couple from book one were mentioned, but not seen. The couple from book two did have a little cameo though. Beyond that, there’s nothing that would scream “you’ve jumped into the middle of a series!” and I love that!

The past between Erin and Zander is a tumultuous one and I get why they were so upset with each other. However, I did think they took their stubbornness and anger a little far. So much so, that Zander honestly came off as a major prick to me at first. He redeems himself though, and their chemistry – especially since they already have a history – is sizzling and downright tangible.

As for the full story, I found it exciting until the highest point of conflict. I was a torn between being disappointed it was a little anti-climactic and happy that it was. It didn’t evolve into some huge plot twist or deeper conflict or anything, and frankly I appreciate that because drama for the sake of a longer book or something can be counter-productive. There are some flashbacks, which I usually hate, but these are short and relevant. The ending itself was sweet and I enjoyed the reconcilliations between various people.

Bottom Line:

Want It is a reunion story that jumps off the page and drags you in. A gripping story with strong and authentic characters, this was an pretty awesome read that left me looking forward to the next one!
