All that Jazz
A Butler Cove Novel by Natasha Boyd Release Date: March 22nd, 2016 Add to Goodreads Source: Author eARC received in exchange of honest review Synopsis:
There's something totally inconvenient about falling for your best friend's brother. Especially when he's turned into a pompous, arrogant, albeit annoyingly sexy a-hole that you'd like to punch or kiss to death at any given moment.
After a stupid favor that blurred the lines from friends to lovers the summer she turned eighteen, Jazz Frazer accidentally lost her heart to Joey Butler. For three years they’ve pretended there’s nothing between them anymore. Jazz is finally ready to move on with the rest of her life. She's determined that experiences and relationships will be fun, casual and easy. After all, she learned the hard way that men just don’t stick around anyway. But when her best friend gets herself into a relationship with a celebrity, Jazz has to do the one thing she never thought she'd do, call Joey and ask for help. Repeatedly thrown together, Jazz tries everything she can to protect her heart and not fall back in love with Joey. But when Joey finally admits that Jazz is the one he's always wanted, all bets are off. This is a full length, standalone contemporary, friends to lovers and second chance romance. This book is recommended for ages 17+ due to strong language and sexual situations.
All that Jazz is a spin off from the Eversea Series and may therefore contain minor spoilers.
Finally!!! The wait is over for one of my most anticipated book of 2016. I have been waiting for Jazz and Joey's story since I finished reading Forever, Jack. It has been a little over two years of waiting for it, but All that Jazz exceeded all of my expectations! If you have not read the Eversea series, I recommend you do before reading All that Jazz. This book is a spin off that series that contain minor spoilers. Eversea and Forever, Jack are two of my top favorite books ever! You don't want to miss reading Keri Ann and Jack's beautiful and passionate love story.
So All that Jazz is about Jessica ''Jazz'' Fraser and Joey Butler. Jazz is trying hard to fight the attraction she feels towards her BFF's brother. She's been hurt in the past and has no intentions of giving her heart again to the boy that crushed it. Her life was going just fine and three years without Joey Butler in her life made it easier to breathe. When her best friend is mixed in a paparazzi storm, Jazz turns to Joey for help. As days go by, Jazz and Joey get close together. Jazz is scared to fall in love all over again with Joey. Will Jazz be able to give Joey and their love a second chance?
Eeeeep! It feels so good to be reunited with two characters that I love to pieces! Jazz is a fun and sassy heroine. She steals the spotlight in this story. She's absolutely delightful and she made me laugh so many times. Joey is just so swoony!! I did not like the way he acted with Jazz in the past, but I could totally feel his love for Jazz this time around. Their chemistry is super intense and their banter is super funny. They shared many sexy and intense moments, but emotional ones as well. It was beautiful to see them grow and learn from their mistakes and the decisions that they made. Their romance was slow building and I loved it that way.
I loved reuniting with Keri Ann and Jack. They are in my top favorite couples and it was exciting to see how the people close to Keri Ann felt about her relationship with a superstar. Natasha Boyd did a fantastic job with this novel! It was a beautiful second chance at love story that with linger with me for days. If you have not read any of her books, I highly recommend them all. Her writing style is captivating, her characters are irresistible and her stories are absolutely beautiful.
I give, All the Jazz, by Natasha Boyd, 4.5 fascinating, fantastic, page-turning, exquisite, second chance at love stars!
