My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The book cover is particularly captivating, with its use of the figure, finely etched, but still in monotones and greys, instead of any colours. Does that symbolify the emptiness and lack of spirit in one or all of the characters? The story revolves around Goldie, a premiere spot girl, who wins the attention of Jett Colby, the much-desired entrepreneur. In fact, being in his radar is so much coveted, that to be "a Jett girl" is an identification by itself. While Goldie finds herself falling for Jett's charm, Jett has his own reasons for not wanting to expose Goldie. Hurtful decisions and days follow, but do Jett and Goldie manage to confess their feelings for each other?
This book is the second instalment of the Bourbon series, and having not read the first book, I was not entirely sure about what to expect. For other readers who may have the same apprehensions, let me clarify that this book has a good stead as a stand-alone book. The author has given enough glimpses and insight into the characters, their mindsets, their thoughts and their emotional personas, that one can easily relate with and empathise with the characters - be it Jett, Goldie, Kace, Pepper or Diego. Jett's character shows surprising depth and isn't as shallow or as ruthless as one may think him to be. There are other "Jett girls" that Goldie meets, but Pepper steals the show at one point in time. The narrative was brisk and pacy.
Overall, this was a casual and easy romance read.
My rating for this book: 4 stars
