Loving Jacob

This book was just ok for me. It starts in the present day and then jumps back to the past. I was a little confused as it started and couldn't understand how MC 2 had married MC1's......son, cousin, nephew?? It didn't make sense and the time line was off. He said they were separated 5 years, but then MC 2 had been married 5 years and widowed 1 year. I kept getting distracted by things like this. Once we got back to the past it all came together and made more sense (although the timeline never worked out as far as I could tell).

The story itself was alright and I think if it had been a longer, more detailed book it might have been better for me. It was a pretty complicated relationship dynamic and I think more detail would have gone a long way. There major issues, ie alcohol abuse, suicide attempts, that we are just informed of but don't really see. As a result I just didn't connect with either MC. I didn't have any feelings about them and I wasn't committed to their relationship. There whole split up didn't make much sense to me. There was nothing some good old-fashion communication couldn't have fixed.

Overall it was just ok for me. I've never read this author before but I will give them another try at some point.

Book Blurb for Loving Jacob

When Malcolm Jenner’s sex-on-the-side turns into more, he isn’t above begging for a second chance.

High-profile attorney Malcolm Jenner is looking for a bit of fun, nothing serious. He's got duties and responsibilities, after all. He doesn't usually choose his lovers from the office, but his attraction to Jacob Renault is too compelling to resist.

However, Jacob isn't interested in temporary. He wants it all—Prince Charming, the castle, the happily ever after. There's no rule that says the younger man can't have fun while he's searching for his prince, though...

At first neither is willing to compromise on their stance, but an agreement is reached, with each man planning to do his best to subvert the other to his viewpoint. Lust turns to love, and what’s impossible becomes merely improbable, but is it going to be enough?
